I partially agree with your post, longpickuptruck, "you are in big trouble". As for me and other businessmen, the economy has been improving for almost six years, and is showing no signs of slowing.
As always, etrade, you post is absolute nonsense. States are currently administering the insurance exchanges. In exchange, they receive federal subsidies. If the heads of each state are honest, they will admit that Obamacare is good for their citizenry. Obamacare will NOT implode.
Very true, the economy is rolling along. Yet, when I listen to the elite right-wing media (any channel), they are all doom-and-gloom. They make it sound like we're in a depression. Thanks for your insight, 1234.
Instead of listening to our President, the ditto-heads obeyed Glen Beck and bought gold at its peak price. In 2009, the right-wing posters on this board claimed to be shorting GE.
I doubt that the President spent his vacation in the upper altitudes (above 11,500 ft) of the Hawaiian islands. Man, you ditto-heads are dumb.
Above 11,500 feet, Hawaii got a blizzard of snow. Usually, at that high altitude, it might be a dusting of an inch or two. The blizzard was fueled by above-average sea temperatures, just like the recent Buffalo-area blizzard was fueled by warmer water temps in Lake Erie. Yesterday, Chicago was 51, and southern Wisconsin was 40. Plus, the Hudson Bay only freezes over by mid-December and a hundred years ago it would be completely frozen by mid- to late-October. Wow.
I like the price action of BTU in late 2009, 2010 and early 2011. Of course, those stellar price gains must have come before the socialist Obama and commie EPA. Right?
Jesus said to him, "If you wish to be complete, go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me." From Matthew 19:21, the Holy Bible.
Here's what T. Boone Pickens had to say: "If U.S. production were taken out of the mix, oil prices would be around $150 to $170 a barrel." Yes, President Obama saved the US consumer a bunch of money with his energy policy.
Sure, GE and many other stocks had a rough ride from 2001-2008. But those years are over. Look at GE's chart and you'll see a tremendous run from 1993-2000, and another fantastic run from 2009-present.
We're still healing from the Bush Great Recession financial crisis. Give it some time, ditto-head, and enjoy the Obama bull market in stocks.
