<quoted text>March 5. There is only one thing you need to know about finance: the stock market is not the economy.
This is worth remembering, because the stock market has been turning in some seductive performances, while the economy has been languishing. The Dow Jones Industrial Average hit a new high of 14,222 today; if it remains that lofty throughout the day, it will beat the previous high of 14,164 on 9 October 2007.
Inevitably, seeing numbers like the Dow rise should feel good. Our gross domestic product isn't going up, having barely scraped out 0.1% last quarter. Our personal income isn't going up, as wages are stagnating. Our employment numbers aren't going up, as we're still short three million jobs lost in the recession. Our 401Ks are dispersed through the stock market and it's nice to feel a little rich, or at least better off. When many of the major economic indicators provide only a wheezing malaise, the Dow high provides a little spot of irrational exuberance that is a welcome antidote.
But don't trust the Dow. It doesn't have your best interests at heart. It lies to you. It's that narcissist who's always preening and trying to look powerful when in fact it barely deserves an invitation to the party.
Most Americans know that the Dow is composed of a basket of 30 industrial stocks that are largely impervious to the struggles of ordinary Americans. If you separated these stocks, their rise would not be exciting. It's hard to picture a family driving back from the food bank – poverty is also at all-time highs in America, by the way – chanting "three cheers for Alcoa! Let's hear it for Caterpillar!" Americans, no matter how patriotic, don't pull out the pom-poms when it's a good quarter for Cisco. We just wait quietly for the riches to trickle down, for the companies to start hiring and for the rest of us to feel rich.
That trickle-down is not happening, and we know it's not happening.

what is relevant is that they are printing money and EVERYTHING is going to crash when the dollar is no longer the world currency.

Obama’s budget wasn’t a serious proposal it’s about winning back the house and retain the senate in 2014!!
Let’s not forget Obama saying at a fundraiser in CA telling his audience if they could win back the House Pelosi being majority leader and Reid in the senate he could push through his Radical Agenda a lot easier!!

Obama once more goes after the elderly while refusing to cut back excessive green programs and the massive size of the government. An Independent would see this.

The White House is now attempting to dictate what a "reasonable level of retirement savings" is. Unbelievable!

“Under current rules, some wealthy individuals are able to accumulate many millions of dollars in these accounts, substantially more than is needed to fund reasonable levels of retirement saving.”

The problem now is more people have to arm themselves just to protect themselves.

Liberals can never figure anything out. Why is that?
Sadly, it's way more likely those same children will die because of the gross negligence of gun owners than those same weapons will be used for personal protection.
