Mitt Romney has a curious Individual Retirement Account (IRA) with a value of $100 million. He refuses to divulge meaningful information about the account, possibly because it could not stand the "light of day" public scrutiny. Romney also continues to hide his prior years' federal tax returns (unlike his late father who disclosed a decade of prior tax returns when he ran for President - and who had nothing to hide in those returns). Romney continues to hide how much money he moved out of the USA during the onset of the Great Recession (and earlier years), and to what particular foreign tax havens, in his effort to increase his massive wealth from its $250 million level to even higher amounts. When confronted with a mystery it is sometimes solved by looking at the simplest explanation. IRA accounts like Mitt Romney's (at least for the rest of us who are not named Mitt Romney) have $6000 annual investment limits. In other words, an employee can only invest up to $6000 a year to such an account. Dividing the $100 million value of Mitt Romney's curious IRA account by $6000 per year could mean that Mitt Romney is actually 1,666 years old! Since my (and probably everyone else not named Mitt Romney) IRA account value plummeted during the Bush Great Recession and is only now years later recovering to that earlier value, and allowing for some reasonable rate of return on Mitt Romney's annual $6000 contributions to his IRA account, he could possibly be only 800 or even 500 years old, and not 1,666 years old. Some of you may think that this explanation is far-fetched, but it has more credibility than any explanation the Romney campaign has released to date. Since this is the most logical explanation, we should all assume that Mitt Romney does play by the same rules as the rest of us - but at the age of 1,666 years, he's had longer time to invest those annual $6000 investments.
