Higher tax rates on the risch. Obviously the market is saying this is bad for industry. Well, maybe it will some day in the future.  Meanwhile, let's just sit back and ride it.

AIG and Citigroup were kicked out of the DJIA. Keep them in there, then where will the DJIA be?

Definitely not 14,000.

Honestly, I would short the shiat out of everything right about now.

I finally dumped my Amazon shares. Love the company, but holy fark that is an inflated stock. Could end up regretting it, though.

So, seeing as the stock market has managed to reach record highs and the income of the richest 1% of the 1% is at all time highs, having grown by double digit percentages every year for years now, at the same time that huge numbers of ordinary Americans are still economically suffering, may we look forward to the complete and total denunciation of the insanity called "supply side economics" since it obviously doesn't work?

Or will its delusional adherents continue to wait for their shower of gold from above?

Tune in tomorrow at 6 to find out!

First of all, Gallup.  and second, whose fault is that?


First of all Gallup, could be 30 points wrong and you still have a significant chunk of the population out the stock market, and secondly, I'd like to see you try to build a portfolio on a fry cook's wage or survive long term unemployment without having to cash out.  And if you want to play the "poor people deserve to be poor game" I'd suggest you go back to whacking off to the men of Fox News.

S&P 500 is over 1500 for the first time since 2007, and it is less than 50 points from its all time high. Your right though that using the DJIA is kind of silly when better indices are available. For instance, the Vanguard total market fund is at 37.60 and its high back in 2007 was 37.56.

unless you're arguing that that 54% represents "the rich", you have very little argument with what AeAe's point was.

Gallup is unreliable.

And what's your point?  You'd rather that the stock market is down?  who benefits there?

I wasn't arguing that the stock market gains were only going to the 1%.  I was pointing out that it's also leaving a lot people behind.
