    Are you better off in the last 4 years? Absolutely. My IRA has grown by over 50% in the past 3 years.

    I'm confused. Wasn't it just a few months ago that Democrats were decrying Wall Street posting record gains while the average American suffered? Does this mean Democrats have come to embrace Wall Street?

    Good for you. How are gas prices, unemployment, and grocery bills doing in the last four years?

    Why do you assume I'm a democrat?

    I've been employed for the last 4 years and get regular raises. I drive an economical car. My grocery bills are cheaper than ever because I shop sales and use coupons.

    Thanks for asking, though.

    American equities and business is considered a (relative) safe haven against Obama's continued destruction of the dollar.


    Thread Fail.

    It's just Fed money printing and ludicrously low interest rates. Do people realize how stupid it is to have a 0% interest rate? It's supposed to only occur when the world is ending but that was 4 years ago.

    Gas prices are up for the same reason. Hedge funds borrow for free and buy up commodities they know everyone needs.

    The dollar bottomed against foreign currencies in 2008. Stop making a fool of yourself.

    I did not compare dollar value against other sovereign-debt laden currencies.

    You are way out of your league here. Imagine that.


    LOL
