[ - ] Has anyone looked into Obama's personal income and net worth. How can he be worth so much if he has worked as community organizer, state senator and US senator. Those jobs do not pay high salaries. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

not a rich kid, got rich in the process of being a community organizer, state senator...not high paying jobs. And who even heard of him out of the state of Chicago in the last two years. Speaking engagements in 2005? Nobody knew who the hell he was! [ Reply | More ]

they are absolutely not qualified to assess a child. they are qualified to ask a series of scripted questions. some of the testers are good at drawing kids out, i suppose, but the one we had was really terrible. ds took the stanford-binet and got a 99, so he's obviously capable. [ Reply | More ]

Not in IB, but income will suddenly be low this year. We're savers and have $, but will also be cutting back -- less travel, less "pricey" activities (i.e., will probably not renew season tickets), less "me time" activities (more running in the park, less yoga). It's nothing major, but it will make a difference in cash spent. [ Reply | More ]
