32% of Americans have 401Ks.

Can't find a figure on IRAs but even with that, how do you figure how many people have both. Even if it is 1/3 of Americans have one or both, they took a big hit this year. 10 years or more until retirement and they are not going to be hit. It is the ones retiring in next 3 years that will be hurting. When I was working I maxed out both. I had some bad years, but taking any 10 year interval, I did well, about 8% a year. If I was working now, don't know what I would do.

If you are looking for it on a map,

don't go by the movie titled "Krakatoa East of Java". It is actually West of Java.

Why is is every time I read that Trump doesn't read but watches TV,

I think of the movie "Being There"? Although I think that Chauncey would make a much better president.

Denmark, wow, I am sad.

I'm Jewish and born in the US in 1943. I won't say all Jews thought like my family, but Jews I knew were taught how the Danish people put their lives on the line to save as many Jews as possible during WWII. Even when some Jews were captured by Germans in Denmark the Danish people along with the Danish Red Cross put pressure on the Germans that very few if any of these Jews were sent to death camps. Just let people live in peace.

I believe that making anyone follow your religion is wrong.

In Muslim countries that make women wear veils, it is for religious reasons and people should be allowed to follow their religions but should not make other people follow them. It should be up to each woman to decide on her own without any form of intimidation. Just because some countries make every one follow one religion does not make it right.

How is following your religion telling someone else they must follow yours?

The Muslims and also certain Jewish people such as Orthodox women do not make any physical contact with strangers. Should all countries have laws that all their people must follow all the laws of the majority, religious and secular? Now, if I thought what you wrote is the opposite of what you meant, I apologize.

Sorry, I don't know if you are replying to my post or not.

Please let me know. If yes, then maybe I can make my post more understandable.

It states where I live and that may help you under stand what I wrote.

It is savage, on purpose.

Being White there are certain countries I would not go to. If I was a Black African, I don't think I would visit the US. I like where I live. White, Black, Brown and Muslim all welcome here. Even Democrats are tolerated.

I guess the Kurds should have read the history of the Montagnards

who helped our Special Forces in Vietnam.
