The only reason the markets are doing better is that we keep printing money like there's no tomorrow. Once that stops, say byebye to all those gains.<quoted text>I don't know what Fred is talking about. I think when we were falling into financial collapse in 2008---remember when George couldn't hand the Presidency over fast enough? That would warrant a statement of the "end of America" Under George W, the stock market returned do you even know? Of course, because you represent some of our brightest I'm sure ---- negative annual return for the whole presidency. Now, Obama as such a terrible President, what has he done? Oh, the S & P 500 has been positive every year and people have doubled their wealth over that period of time. The contrast is amazing, yet, you just can't get your head around it. Try a little math...it hurts but it helps in measuring what is REALLY going on.
The markets have been artificially inflated and will fail.
Unemployment is still stagnant and GDP growth is pitiful at best. If these numbers were better, then the action in the market would be real, but it isn't.
Think about that.
Oh, who had control of Congress for two years prior to the collapse...the Dems.
