    Obama will make everyone equal no matter how much it damages the economy

    so, between 2007 and 2008, 500,000 people no longer had assets worth more than a million? so their home values dropped? Or are homes not considered "investable" assets?

    Damnit Toro. If you insist on posting objective data I shall be forced, forced I tell you, to complain vehemently to the mods. This has simply go to stop. It's raising the tone of the discussions and we can't allow that!

    Consider yourself warned.

    Thank you.

    Falling stock dividends...well, that makes sense. My investment accounts lost a lot of money last year and are only now slowly creeping up each month. Doubtful if they will ever fully recover.

    I don't think it is only the super rich that are poorer and I can't say I feel any more sympathy for them than I do for everyone else.

    Are you saying that Obama is deliberately engineering an economic crisis to enforce equality?

    Obama and the Dems are intentionally inflicting more damage to the US economy than anything short of a full scale Soviet nuclear strike.

    The Dollar is getting crushed, the deficits are insanely unsustainable and after bankrupting Fannie, Freddie and destroying the US housing markets Dems have their sites set on US Health Care while ignoring the peril that Medicare Medicaid and Social Security face.

    Yes, it's intentional

    I'm not the one with the vast conspiracy theories.
