    With all the wealth in the good ol’ US of A being sucked up to those on top, all the less money for working (and unemployed, downsized, restructured, outsourced, aka screwed) people to purchased goods made ANYWHERE, much less in China, why should this be of any surprise to our economic geniuses on Wall Street?

    As I agree that Obama’s last 7 years have only helped his Limousine Liberal friends in DC and Malibu, even he hasn’t prevented the U.S. to still be the best place to invest your money.

    The trouble with cartoons about the markets is that anything (other than a ride at a bad amusement park) is likely to be OBE. Yesterday, the US markets were up 4%, and today the Chinese markets are up more than 5%. Of course, tomorrow…

    At 08:13 the DOW was up another 156 points. I wonder which computers will be be among the first to decide it’s time for a little profit taking.

    “…only helped his Limousine Liberal friends…”. Right. I’m sure the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson haven’t made a dime over the past seven years.

    Why did China’s economy grow so fast? Perhaps all of the cheap goods we bought at Walmart? The US has kept ahead of the pack by innovating and building new businesses. Of late we are not funding R&D, our schools are falling behind, colleges are becoming too expensive for students to afford, and everything is about the quick buck or getting elected. It is the fundamentals that will determine our future not the Wall Street casino and media circus.

    Obama actually saved Adelson’s entire fortunes with his bailouts and stimulus package. Adelson returns the favor by spending vast amounts to defeat him. Adelson has great faith the Republicans are lying to their base every day: they’ll do even more for millionaires than the Demcocrats, if Social Security has to be destroyed in order to pay for it.

    There was s piece on NPR today about American students getting a much better deal on college in Germany. And the classes are in English, too.

    Don’t forget, Shellie has a case pending before the DOJ about his Macau casino. I’m sure he’d rather face a benign republican attorney general. “Case dismissed!”

    That’s fine. We can just hand out some visas to talented kids from India, and pay them half of what an American with similar education would demand. Home-grown talent? Too expensive!

    Much of the privately funded research and product development was part of the production that was sent overseas. Much of the federal research had budgets trimmed to points on near extinction. At at recent Maker Space meeting scheduled to introduce kids to robot making, we discovered that kids no longer know how to use hand tools.

    Unfortunately Ted, The Wall Street Casinos ARE determining much of our future, and probably will so for a long time!
