    So you got a new car with your stock “earnings” (which are technically “unearnings”) and will have enough money in the bank when you retire to have your capital gains taxed from deferred investments, and you’re LOSING?
    .
    Do you want some cheese with that whine?

    I do not see the concern over debt. Dick Cheney said that Reagan proved that deficits do not mean anything. Ronald left the legacy of completely out of control fiscal policy that every president except Clinton has fed upon with increased vigor. Obama is the latest version of the Reagan madness.

    Let’s all thank President Obama for making 99.6 percent of President Bush’s tax cuts permanent. But didn’t the left say the Bush tax cuts are bad. How can that be when the left also says Obama is Good.

    Hey Folks, you know that Mr.Ima did not “make” a penny unless, he actually sold stock and had the $$$ deposited in a BANK.

    Nice try and Obama racked up a debt higher than all the other presidents in the last 40 years combined and he did it in 4 years.

    @Ms. Ima

    “I did do pretty good on the stock market yesterday, enough to buy a new car.”

    It’s not profit until you sell. Odds are this little feel good rally will correct, people will take profits and your “gains” will diminish…

    Elementary school children often do well betting on the stock market with play money.

    “Nice try and Obama racked up a debt higher than all the other presidents in the last 40 years combined and he did it in 4 years.”

    Zoid, facts matter. The latest debt figure is $16.4 trillion. W Bush’s last budget period ended in Sep 2009 and the debt was $11.9 trillion.

    But since you are pointing fingers, W Bush came in with a $5.9 trillion debt (as of Sep 2001) and left with an $11.9 trillion debt (as of Sep 2009). HE REALLY DID RACK UP MORE DEBT THAN ALL OF PAST PRESIDENTS COMBINED.

    Depends, are the quarterly earnings and capital gains being reinvested and what is the time line till you need the money.
    And by the same token if the market tanks the same amount or more he didn’t “lose” any money either.
    Stratagy and time lines are the final answer.

    Dr. Life is NOT a zero sum game. If someone gets rich they need to do something with the money, Which is to say INVEST or SPEND it. Both make money and jobs for other people.
    It is the only proven system that lifts more people out of poverty then any other.

    Nice try, but in fact revenues and spending were almost meeting when the Democrats including a freshman Senator from Ill, took over both houses, thats when the spending shot up again. As for the 2009 budget that was never signed by GW but by some skinny dude from Chicago, the Dems in the house and senate keep it bottled up so the he could be the one to sign it.
    Humm lets see, Republican house and senate balance budgets and surpluses. Dem house and senate, and president, no budgets, and out of control debt

    And wasn’t a huge part of the debt on President Obama’s watch putting the shrubster and cheney unbudgeted wars on the budget where it belonged when shrubster and cheney declared the war, with the help of congress, and the lies they told to congress?

    Okay, shrubster and cheney, where’s that income?
