Things started going down hill when BHO got the nomination. Businesses KNEW things were going to end badly and they did. Only wish I’d have had the vision to get out of the market right then and there.
We’ve managed to climb back up IF you look at the Dow but then those dollars don’t quite add up. 144.00 barrel oil in July ‘08 and gas prices around 4 bucks a gallon, 100.00 or slightly under barrel of oil NOW and 4 bucks a gallon. Hmmm what would it be IF we had 144.00 a barrel now, 6 bucks a gallon easy.
Libs tout a 6-7,000 DOW in Dec. ‘09 vs. a 12K or so now DOW but they aren’t the same. Not by a long shot.
We’re doing ok, but we do live below our means and always have.
