KnowFoolishness suggested that "wouldn't it make[s] sense to take at least $2000 per year to invest in a high risk portfolio?"

The answer is yes, it may make sense to diversify one's investments, but not for the reasons he suggests.

Proper diversification in an investment portfolio is a good thing, sought out by informed and intelligent investors. It is a good thing, *I think*, whether there are income taxes or not.
