6 months' salary in liquid cash checking account. One year is even better but I'm happy with 6 months.

I realize that 401(k) is a dogshiat idea designed by politicians and the superrich to protect and empower the wealthy few. Very few know what a pension is, and very fewer have a pension. So I choose minimal contributions to my 401(k). Nothing high risk (though ALL of it involves risk). I like middle-of-the-road returns. Slow and steady wins the race...until the greedy Wallstreeters are again allowed to go unchecked and destroy the financial system like they did in 2008.
Haha, explain what exactly wrong with a 401K and why a pension is so great? I guess I am just not 'woke'. And by the way, I happen to have both.

Very curious as to why they are so evil.

Lots of assumptions on your end. You dont know me dont pretend you do. Whats wrong with hate? You dont hate child molesters, thieves, or people who abuse old folks? I think hates fine when its not undue, or for stupid reason like “durrr ur skinz not the sames as mines i hate u! Type of bs.

What i can also tell you is I think its absurd to compare the elite of the elites lifestyle to your common man. Its stupid actually. Lets figure out where you think that type of comparison applies. You literally said “hey if multibillionaires can live on a food budget then so can you!” Who are you shilling for?
It's really not that big of a deal. Buffet's advice is simply to have your money work for you, not the other way around. We're not talking about some dumb 2% interest on a credit card rewards program here. He means to simply invest rather than be in debt, i.e. bank paying you rather than you paying the bank.

I have no problem with your rant, I could care less, but at least properly comprehend his advice.
 

How This "Nice Guy" Steals Women from Jerks

Did you know a woman can be totally UN-ATTRACTED to you...

And she'll still sleep with you?

If you've ever seen a girl go home with some asshole she didn't even LIKE, you know this is true.

But how is this possible?

Because deep inside her brain, sexual desire has nothing to do with what you LOOK like...

And everything to do with how you make her FEEL.

Matt Cook knows this all too well.

Matt is a nice guy... but he steals women from JERKS all the time.

In this free video training below, he'll show you how he does it:

I have a spreadsheet where I keep up with my accounts. All manual, nothing automatic, so that requires me to go in there and actually keep up with it all, which makes me stay on top of it. The most important part is the budget, though. Once I started budgeting, that is when I got ahead. It's sounds very simple, but it is very hard to execute, because you must learn to say no to things. I usually do it on a monthly basis. Once you get it all out there on paper you really start to figure stuff out. For example, getting rid of a house payment would do much more for you than trying to cut back on a TV bill or something equally as small. Also, I figured out I was spending WAY too much on eating out. It's truly surprising how fast that can add up.

Discipline is very difficult. It's something that must be learned no matter how much money you make.

Buffet gained his fortunes through stealing and market manipulation probably never worked a real job his whole life or made an honest living

That's all good, right or wrong, I don't care. His advice is still solid, independent of how he made his money.

I don't generally believe in being frugal unless I'm in a jungle or in a desert.

Go make more money to spend as you wish.

Find ways to make more money rather then find ways not to spend money.

That's the proper mindset.
Naw. You have to do both. Championships are won by strong offense and strong defense in sync, not one or the other.

you can try this, put aside some percent of income 5 to 10% of your income everytime you receive your income. Keep accumulating it until it reaches an amount = 3-6 months of your expenses. Once you reach this level of savings over a period of time, you can use this amount for any emergencies. If you use this money for emergencies, you will have to accumulate the money again until it reaches the threshold of 2 to 3 months of expenses.

After this you still keep 5 to 10% of your income aside and use it to clear any loans that you have. Meanwhile stop taking new loans. Don't take any loan unless you're investing in something (education or real estate, etc) that will generate more return than your loan+interest.

I think the economy is essentially stuffed. Wages relative to assets are in the doldrums, debt is everywhere, and is everywhere being used just to survive. In this situation, get rid of as much of your debt as you can. Go bankrupt if you have to, and start again. Scratch together a bit of money, by hook or by crook, and store it in something like silver, gold and Bitcoin. Stand on the sidelines and watch it crash, live in a van if you have to....

No-one has savings, all are dependent on their previous house prices. But the deflation monster will not be denied...
