~ Starting balance in IUL and S&P of $10,000
~ Monthly contribution $1,000 to IUL and S&P

I bypassed this earlier, but now that you've repeated it, I have to ask...
Do you realize how much this is??? Now absurd it sounds?
$1000/mo is $12,000/yr.

It's especially ridiculous because the median family income in 1965 was only $6900, up about $310 from 1964, according to this information from the Census Bureau

But as one of my former managers who was really good in sales used to tell me - Don't let the facts get in the way.
