Way to stick it to that 1%

and yet, no raise in 6 years.
Someone is making money, but it is not the working class.

Headline: Stocks near record high. This is a repeat from 2007 1929?

Fixed?

And yet, the economy still sucks.

Clearly this is either a direct result of Obama's excellent leadership, or a mere coincidence that has nothing at all to do with the president because the president can't directly effect the markets. Well, I mean, unless I like the president and the markets go up or I hate the president and they go down. Then the president is the ONLY factor that has any meaningful effect on the markets. Otherwise, he has no control whatsoever. I hope that clears it up for everybody. The same principal applies to gas prices, in case any of you were wondering.

Well, someone is prospering ...

Difficulty: Its not you.

(But, you still need to make sacrifices.)

Also, nice use of the word "working class". I really don't like how middle class is now used to describe both the true middle class and working class.

it should go: poor > working class > middle class > upper class

Well...if you're allowed to almost bankrupt the entire world economy in 2008, and you start shaking in your boots because you might go to jail, at least they're showing relief in that the current administration will do absolutely nothing about prosecuting a single person. So back at the shell game they go!

Think how amazing it would be without all the anti-business, socialistic Obama policies that keep stores from being open on Sundays and stuff.

"Stocks near record high. This is a repeat from 2007"

Should read, "Dollars value at a near record low. This is a repeat from 2007"

Get ready for another bout.

People have tried to explain it to me, but I'm pretty certain I'm a total moron when it comes to the stock market.

How do that DJIA and NASDAQ numbers affect me, the common peon?

/because I swear it's all a group hallucination...

Gee thanks Obama

Well, if you have a 401k, or work for a union, or have a job that provides pension benefits (yeah there are a lot less that 30 years ago but they are still around), it does impact your future retirement prospects. The last poll data I could find had 53% of Americans with market investments, so it does impact more than the 1%.

If you have none of those, no impact.
