KiwDaWabbit: rvesco: KiwDaWabbit: The DIJA is an indicator of how the economy is doing much like the BMI is an indicator of how obese you are.So true. My BMI is 40.9 and I'm as light as a feather.[thevinylvillage.files.wordpress.com image 265x393][www.phillipheath.com image 395x400]BMI: 39.1BMI Category: Severely bbese; 6 pounds away from very severely (morbidly) obese.
Rapmaster2000: Thunderpipes: Hobodeluxe: Thunderpipes: 11% unemployment, family incomes down, growth barely in the positive, exploding debt, but good thing the stock market is good this month.Can't wait for the next crash.Austerity and spending cuts have consequences. At least the GOP got what they wanted.The ones that took effect 7 days ago? What happened the last 4 years? Obama was cutting spending the last 4 years?Don't be stupid.The Tea Party Express swept into power and cut the head off of bloated government spending. Libs like you try to say that Obama does everything good, but Real Americans know that the massive reduction in government spending growth was due to Real Leadership from patriots like Michelle Bachman.Michelle Bachman is taking care of business. Suck it, lib.
jaybeezey: I'm assuming your talking about the extra $6,000,000,000,000 spent over the last 4yrs as austerity and spending cuts?

Lt. Col. Angus: Basically, *just* a market account.... i.e. can I learn to see market and industry trends, and at least keep up with, if not get out ahead of some?I'd imagine that taking $10K and turning it into $5K in twelve months time won't encourage my wife to let me invest more.
somedude210: untaken_name: There are a lot of anti-unionists. I'm one, for example. I've seen unions in action (inaction).And I understand that, but the purpose of the unions were to protect workers from being mistreated by their employers (crap wages, horrible working conditions, etc), so while they've become a pain in the ass, at their heart, they still serve a purpose, but if you really want to get rid of unions, then you should be advocating fair wages that a person can live on, and if you can do that without needing the unions, then what do you need the unions for?That's how you beat the unions, not do everything in your power to piss them off
