its to late for me. I lost my 401K and my x-wifes 401K to these #$%$ theieves. Yea I know never use margin, water over the dam now. We broke up over that financial mess and the house went into foreclosure. So now she went on welfare and food stamps. Since I went on unemployment we are both broke. I think I will join those protesters on Wall Street. Lets burn it down unless they give me my money back.
We own 1,000 shares of SPY. I lost my job and have been out of work for over two years. Wife couldn't take the stress and left with the kids and her cat, she left me the dog. We bought these shares around the high and are down quite a bit. The lawyer says all the stocks have to be sold and the cash split up. Why can't we just settle for the market value of the shares and split them up that way? I guess we can both carry the losses on future taxes.
This is going to be fun on the house. We owe a lot more than it's worth. I didn't want the stupid thing anyway, it was her idea. That's probably what ruined our marriage, we couldn't afford the mortage, taxes and insurance. The dog liked it bark, bark!
I really hope the person in India, who has my job now, has a happy wife, two kids and a nice house to live in. I have a masters degree in CS, but my company sent my job to India where they work for 1/4 our pay. I used to pay taxes, big time, and now I get unemployment and welfare benefits. When we are all unemployed, who will pay the taxes then?
