Your entitled to your own opinion, but calling me dumb and ignorant... seriously???

If I was dumb and ignorant, I'd take all of my moms money and invest it in whatever I wanted to do without looking at all of my options, without trying to seek council.

I have information about what to do from multiple sources, including my uncle who is a CFA. I try to get as much information as I can, pool it all together and make an informed decision. This was just one of my methods......

I'm not some young and reckless kid, having fun with my moms retirement money (being too headstrong and overconfident to not listen to an internet chat board,,,,,, resulting in my mom eating Alpo.......really?? a little overboard pal). So don't assume you know everything in an internet message board.

Again thanks to all who helped.
