    Wonder who all those 401K, IRA, holders are who have recouped more than $4 TRILLION - oh yeah moms and pops.

    I know people with jobs and retirement accounts may SEEM like "fat cats" to someone who eats out of garbage cans. But they really aren't.

    Recovered nothing....They're still down overall --and even worse in terms of purchasing power-- while commodities are way up.

    But good thing there's no inflation. :eusa_whistle:

    Mom and Pop on main street aren't suffering when the DOW is up, everyone knows that.

    The DOW is the leading economic indicator.

    The economy looks great from MY house.

    Hey, anyone want to guess how much the Dow was up over the course of Bush's entire term?

    How about Clinton's?

    Congress drops nearly a trillion (borrowed) dollars and the market is up. Who saw that coming? :lol:

    Just remember to take your money out soon before the bottom falls out again.

    Are those the same people who will almost assuredly let their reitrement accounts crash NEXT time around, too?

    You know, those majority of people who have no clue how to manage their own investments?

    Or maybe we'll get lucky and the market will never crash again :rolleyes:
