    American company's have adopted to the Obama policies just like they do with any president in office. They streamline the business as need to make profits. Who is in office does not have much to do with the stock market. But I can tell you that is the Obama administration didnt have such a strangle hold on the economy the DOW Jones would probably have been over 15,000 by now. Our president does not believe in prosperity, he believes in punishing those who do good and inflicting pain on Americans with his lack of leadership.

    Puerile.

    Meantime, the poor are facing loss of public support, the gap between the very, very rich and the rest of us grows larger, and the GOP, defeated by a million votes, still rules by filibuster....

    Meantime...our president will not hesitate fire those who teach our kids and those who protect us (fire and police) to achieve his political agenda. All while the poor suffer from his policies he goes on golf trips with Tiger Woods and the first lady go's on seperate family trips.Only now that his popular poll numbers are crashing will he appear to reach out to talk with Republicans.

    And in the meantime the president sells his time and attention to the highest bidders.

    Sounds to me like he is doing the opposite of closing the gap

    The real question is: When is the next crash, and how bad will it be?

    When the fed stops pumping money into the economy. Probably towards the end of Obama's term so they can blame the next crash on the republicans

    Your bitterness has been sorely missed. I guess it took you four months of sulking to get over the November elections, huh? And you were so sure your side was going to win. You were so certain Wisconsin was going to go to Romney.....

    ,,,,,no wonder you're such a bitter prick.


    Or his girlfriend had her baby, which is why he said he was leaving in the first place. icon_confused.gif

    Nah, I'm not sulking, but it was very dissapointing. We still have Walker here in Wisconsin and he is doing some great things for our state. Now all of us can really enjoy Obama's economy for the next few years...it should be exciting!

    ........I'm so glad you are still around and post so everyone can see how hateful of a person you truely are. But then again we all know that already.

    That's got nothing to do with it. The rise in the markets has to do with the depressed bond market. The bond market is depressed because there's still no demand---or not much---in the economy. Read Krugman, his column today explains it.



    Krugman is an evil, manipulative prick who continuously spews lies- Try actually looking into the "facts" he puts out there- they can't be backed up. There are websites that look into his articles when they come out and point out the fallacies in his "facts".

    Theres a bond bubble created by the fed. We keep printing money without the gold to back it up and we are keeping interest rates artificially low. Even inflation data has been manipulated to look as though everything is OK- and its not.

    I also tend to check the source of my information before I believe it- I wouldn't ask a plumber for medical advice. I certainly wouldn't ask Krugman or a politician for advice on whats really going on. Peter Schiff is an extremely intelligent and competent businessman- talk to the businessmen if you really want to know whats up.

    Take a look at the short video below and I encourage you to watch his other videos if you want to know whats really going on.

    I spent 15 years on the stock exchange floor trading equity options, and another ten trading bond futures after that; I don't need instructions from amateurs with an ideology to push, or people inexperienced and gullible enough to fall for their snake oil.


    And yet it would seem you didn't and still don't have a particarly strong grasp of finance. Then again, traders back then had a different skill set.

    Don't mind the old codger. He likes to pretend that he knows far more than he does - ,makes the inferences from time to time but when it comes to actually demonstrating said knowledge is either too lazy or demonstrably false that it's laughable. That said, he still seems to try harder than that other guy meninlove.

    If you're referring to Aristoshark as the codger, I suspect he actually knows even more than he lets on, not less. And as for meninlove, that's "guys" plural, not "guy" singular. A double threat, though just one of them is enough to run rings around you. icon_rolleyes.gif
