    S&P has doubled in the past five years. Ruinous, I tells ya.

    Tax and spend. Said as if that were a bad thing. Much better than the r/w plan, spend, spend, spend, tax cuts galore for the rich rich and start and run useless wars on credit.

    I noticed that some one flipped the signs off to the side of the road there.

    The stock market is only an indication of the stock market, not the economy. The current state of the market itself is a bubble, and like housing, is going to crash hard. You are well named braindead.

    Cutting taxes worked for JFK, and brought in enough extra revenue by creating funds for investments that in turn created jobs. Thos jobs put enough money into the economy that tax revenues boomed, allowing the Government to fund APOLLO, among other things. The same was true under Reagan’s tax cuts. cjr53, you are sadly lacking in any basis for your claims. You seem to have swallowed the Marxist Kool-Aid of our President, who believes in division, not unity. Still, hating people that are not like you feels good, doesn’t it? Tax the rich, send them to the lamp posts! What a sad person you are.

    They never are, that’s just what their campaign managers call them.
    Release the Flying Monkey!… oh wait… can’t…
    sequestered. Like the Air Force grounding a third of their planes.
    Guess it gives Congress more time to solicit donations.
    helluva way to run a country.

    It,s amazing how all you Obama lovers have so much time to write your tedious little comments. Your latte is getting cold and your free cell phone is ringing.

    Reagan’s tax cuts…yeah, I remember how good things were going in the late 80s and early 90s, and I was barely 10.
    Tax cuts create short-term gains, nothing more.

    Brain dead Lisa is on her hobby horse of economic ignorance again. Household budgeting IS NOT the same as running a country. Could a family refuse to pay its electricity or phone bills for 8 years and not get the services cut off? But GW Bush kept on financing his totally pointless war without paying for it. Now Obama is paying the price and getting criticized for spending to create employment to ease the effects of recession while at the same time accepting the need for cuts in spending in some areas.

    If the signs were “flipped” they would either be upside down or have the back side to you.

    Simplistic manichean tripe that we’d expect from Tea-sa Benson. The road is really a wide open space and the riches beyond are guarded by a herd of aging, dying elephants.

    Artificial, just like the last stock market boom

    you might be interested in this Forbes article concerning who the rich support politically and why. Maybe, just maybe you can step back and see the truth and quit repeating talking points….well maybe not.

    There is a very busy graphic about half way down. zoom in and enjoy.

    If spending is too great, reducing spending is a priority. If revenue is too small, either increase revenue (tax) or don’t spend money you don’t have. Unfortunately, many believe in Borrow-and-Spend, which is the most destructive.

    Those who like Borrow-and-Spend also tell us that deficits don’t matter.

    The stock market is completely artificial. It is where you make money from nothing but pure speculation on what a product may or may not do. Yeah, you can make money either way IF you have the insider information (oh I know it’s against the law to use it LOL) that the top dogs are well aware of. But it is where the guys with money buy and sell stuff that makes a company need to manufacture something or grow something so the masses can buy it at the increased price due to speculation by the top dogs (see the cycle?) so they can make money out of NOTHING that they do.

    Yep a rising market is a sure sign the rich are doing well.
