I hear you but that's not a basis for buying a house the basis for the houses that you have the money and so i just want you to run those scenarios.

I'll take home pay but on a fifteen year that's gonna jump up. And so what. I would do if i was them. If they really want to get this house they have a great income and you guys do have the cash position to do it to to get in this house. You're going to have to cash out some of that stock to get that number below twenty five percent of your take home pay on the fifteen year mortgage so crunch those numbers and how much you need to cash out from those stocks and it was just like we were saying when we're talking about this with the fine print georgia's Podcast hosted talks about the housing market this week in the episode.

They plan to finish work today on a long list of new tax increases to make that spending possible. Npr congressional correspondent kelsey. Snell has been looking into this story. Good morning kelsey. good morning. What are democrats proposing re taxes. So democrats say they can raise at least two trillion dollars in as much as three trillion dollars with this plan. You know the big ticket items are increases to the top corporate and individual rates. You know basically they're trying to roll back. The tax cuts republicans passed under president trump. In two thousand seventeen okay. Let's parse those two out. What would this mean for taxes on individuals on the individual side. Democrats promised voters that they'd undo taxes for the wealthy and this is really their moment to do that. They want to return the top tax rate to thirty nine point six for individuals. Earning over four hundred thousand dollars. They also want to increase the rate high income. People pay for selling things like stocks and other assets. It's called the capital gains rate. And they wanna make the top rate for that twenty five percent which is a pretty big hike and what would it mean for businesses. Their plan would increase the top corporate tax rate from twenty one percent to twenty six and a half percent. Now that is not a full reversal of the tax cuts. Republicans passed and it's lower than what biden proposed they also plan to include changes to the rules for pass through businesses. Now sometimes that includes doctors and lawyers but it basically means that someone reports business income on their individual taxes and they wanna make it harder for companies to avoid the new higher taxes. How are republicans responding to these proposals while republicans say that the bill will actually have some pretty harmful effects on the economy. Mostly by making the us an unattractive place to run a company and they say it would penalize companies. That would normally use the money. They'd have to pay in new taxes to reinvest in their

You come any indication that he was up dotting runaways and dismembering them in his basement no drove a previously like fears old. Thought maybe that was a normal thing from the joe just to be accurate. If i was to say a ducted gay runaway prostitute in dismembered with saws all in his basement. What you say and it was discussing stan. Your neighbor less than fifty percent chance of him engaging in that behavior. And that's my only choice or less. Yeah more okay.

Trump never heard of or or something in our subdivision backer. What this place. I grew up in. We used to have i mean. We grew up kind of a stray animal belt which is basically like late. Eighties early nineties. Like they had a lot of extra animals going by you know around and a highway in animals get hit out there all the time and so on saturdays we'd go bare.

"less than twenty five percent" Discussed on The Michael Berry Show
"What did you call about deer. And i just. I didn't know if he was still promoting businesses. Yeah why not what you got i. I'm sorry well. I have a clothing line that i started called stepped up and its first step parents and step kids to give to their bought for birthdays and father's day and stuff like that it just acknowledges the stepparent world of men who are related to raise other people's kids. Yeah there's there's more of that than people realize you know you see the statistics that fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. I think that's an old number. I think it's higher than that now. And so you see how many cases of people being in a situation where the step dad is actually the one that you know more often than not. The woman is going to get custody than the man. It's it's rare for the man to get custody. It happens but it's it's definitely the minority and bet it's less than twenty five percent of the cases although it's more than it used to be but you see a lot of cases where the dad is a third in is not involved in the kid's life and the mom remarries and that guy plays the role of of you know being a dad. You see that a lot and look. I don't really care who does it. Kids who don't have parental figures in their lives. More often than not grow up to be unstable unproductive unsuccessful now. There are exceptions to that. But it's definitely the exception to the rule. And i think that many of the problems in our country today are related to dad's not being dads often does not even being present but when they are present it's them not engaging in discipline every time every year we go to the parent teacher conference and we sit down and the teacher start. Talking about the academics. I don't worry about the academics. My wife's the tiger mom my kids are gonna perform above the level they would have naturally performed at because she's gonna to harass them and harangue them and be all over them to make sure that they do. Because it's important what i care about is. Are they a distraction to other kids and are they respectful to other kids especially opposite sex and are they respectful to the teachers and administrators. And i will ask those questions and every single time they say. Are you kidding. No i'm not kidding. Why your kid is the most respectful kid i've ever had or at least most respectful kid in the school. If i don't hear a teacher say that they're going to hear about when we come home. It's not that hard to teach a kid that little words like sir and ma'am if you if you teach a kid that when they when when they're asked a question to respond yes or no. Why not tag sir. And ma'am on there because it means so much to people is. Why don't teach a kid how to shake hands and look somebody in the eye because to some people it doesn't matter one bit they don't they. Don't judge you based on that but to some people that means a whole lot now. why not. Why not put a kid in a position where they can they can send off the signal that i'm a respectful thought for young man or young woman. Why not why not teach that will. Those are usually things. Bad teeth a dad. That's important to adapt because they tend to be very important to men. And so if there's not a dad present or the dads is is a hands off dad. Then you don't teach your kids that and it's so easy to do. It's not even hard to teach you teach it you reinforce it. You inspect what you expect. It's not hard.

"Walk that back to seven years down to ninety days so if you end up going exclusive. Acs and you decide you know what. I wanna move out. I want to go to non exclusive distribution three. Acs trout find way. Voices audiobooks unleashed and so on so forth. That's probably going to be the path for you if you're fifty fifty though folks. Sorry you stuck. It sucks unless you end up buying out the audio book rights from the narrator Fifty fifty means year there for the full seven years. So that won't help you at all so exclusives non-exclusive in ninety days though. That's that's not a bad thing. So i really kind of like that and the thing that just rolled out last week was the fact. They finally put a returns column so a column that is completely separate. Now they're only going to be accounting for returns done as of january twenty twenty one. They're not looking at doing retroactive refunds. Or paying you back for any of that stuff. That was done last year. So essentially anything. That's returned you will be able to see inside your dashboard into a separate column. Which was a huge deal to me. I thought it's it's. It's better that we know what they're taking from so we can kind of addressing economic concerns. That might be happening there so one about returns. What about the fact that there's going to be someone out there that listens to your audiobook within one day returns and tries to check those things out. We just. It's going to be a lot of trust. But one thing i would recommend to. The team would be something that would be something like true returns so if a person say has consumed less than twenty five percent of the content just throwing out an arbitrary number here content they decide. They don't like it. They want to return. I totally think that's totally fine. But if someone listens to the entire book they've consume that whole thing. It's like sitting down. Have a meal again. At mcdonald's i'm gonna go to this on up. Oh hey could you give me refund. It was all right. But i mean man you know what i mean. Give me more food. Oh you're going to be food. Fantastic all right. That's what i'm talking about. And.

More information is better than less information. If i'm in p. That is actually drilling good wells. Why am i giving you a really shitty. Pv ten in a data dumped once a year. Why not create something that. Everybody can access on a monthly basis that. Here's my wells. Here's the actual production numbers and you can see that. What i'm telling you is true. And if you like what you see you will invest in the company and you believe the free cash flow that i'm generating and you believe the rate of return that i'm generating off those wells. Give that to the investment community and it will create more interest because one of the problems for this industry has been the the data and the kind of Lack of data and the confusion and the data.

The actual dollars we've gotten today here's the tail and oh by the way every month that goes by or every quarter that goes by. Let's give them some wiggle room. You can do the tail versus the tailed. Does it hold up. I think that would be huge. I think that's a great call to arms right now for every oil and gas company the i agree and i think you combine that with rate part of the problem that i see in. This industry is the incestuous nature of the boards. You know so if everybody has their buddies ray and it's all a bunch of oil and gas guys so you combine more information with better since may bring people from outside the industry on your board You know you solve a lot of the problems all these fourteen trillion dollars.

"Taiwan twenty percent of Apple's revenue. Comes from that region. So that is a believable reason the reason it would be not getting as much revenue from China slowing phone sales in China increased competition in China, a decelerating market, China's just generally not doing as economically robust, as it has been a strengthening dollar, and this gets touted as a main reason, I think it's a lesser reason. But it is a reason the US China trade dispute which apple cleanse reduced traffic to its Chinese stores. A little bit of patriotism, like, hey, maybe I will buy a wall way after all earlier launch of the iphone ten s didn't help apple says because a lot of their sales got moved before the quarter supply constraints were blamed more people replacing batteries instead of upgrading was noted. Although that's just part of the general trend of people keeping their phones longer the other divisions. Not iphone rose nineteen percent in a memo obtained by Bloomberg that Tim cook sent to his employees. He said iphone activation in the US and Canada set a new Christmas day record for the company we expect to set all time revenue records and key markets, including the US, Canada and Mexico, western European countries, including Germany, and Italy and countries across the Asia Pacific region like Korean Vietnam. So he's trying to calm the employees down saying, look, we're fine. We're doing great everywhere. It's just China. So okay. Why is this happening? The armchair evaluation is pricing. But there's a good reason for them to be raising the pricing. First of all, it's it's right there with the other top end phones average revenue per unit has been rising for apple. They're also just something that's not going to matter. Longer-lasting phones based research says the phone upgrade cycle has risen across markets from twenty four months to thirty five months between two thousand fifteen in two thousand eighteen and the other revenue. Streams have not caught up to the iphone yet. The watch ecosystem that's only a tenth of iphone revenue. Cars don't have them TV service. Don't have it smart glass. Is not. There are India's more than doubled for apple since two thousand fourteen but services revenue has not kept pace while it's rising rose two point four billion dollars. It's not enough to make up those sales loss of nine billion dollars services make up less than twenty five percent of iphone sales things like Netflix pulling its inept. Subscriptions aren't going to help that. Now, apple said customers spent a record one point two two billion dollars in the app store between December twenty four th and December thirty first they also set a record for.
