    @ up and over…………………Please keep us updated.

  • gumby


    money isnt worth what it was, hence the all time profits…worldwide. low cpi doesn’t mean a lot of money wasn’t printed. how else can you explain all that money in bonds and equities and commodities. enjoy the high buying power while it lasts.

  • cathy

    @ninja, Riddle me this. I know everything about everything. Who am I?

  • usa8888

    Gumby–I have never read such a convoluted group of statements. Could you try again …in English???

  • usa8888

    Don’t be smart, Bsotgnw, I am only in the 3rd grade……………

  • Sicilian Papa



    You hit the nail on the head.

    Team O. has printed trillions. They have been propping up the markets for four years now. QE1, QE2, QE3. Meanwhile the debt has ballooned with Obama’s socialist spending. A disaster in the making.

    Gas prices are stuck at around 3.50, wait till summer. Because of fracking we are producing more but printing money is inflationary. Food price are rising steadily. Taxes in the blue state of Connecticut are going through the roof.

    USA8888 it sure looks like 1929 to me or maybe 1984!

  • usa8888

    Cathy—Professor Moriarty???

  • Sicilian Papa

    This balloon will burst during O.’s time in office. As a nation we will face a crash in the markets and 22 trillion in debt.

    The only question is how the corrupt, left wing media will blame Bush and the Republican party.

    O. is destroying the fiscal health of this country forever and with his allies in the media there is no stopping him.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I do feel bad for businesses that bought time on MSNBC. Those numbers are frightful. Wow! The Mostly Sycophantic Barrack News Channel is sinking like a stone. O. is going to sink along with them.

    USA8888 O. wants to raise the debt ceiling to 18 trillion. People on the left here laughed when I said O. would hit 22 trillion by the end of his second term. No one is laughing now.

  • usa8888

    How many times do I have to tell you, Sicilian Papa, the debt has NOTHING negative to do with recovery (in fact, it’s needed for recovery); nor does it have anything to do with inflation due to the severe depression; nor does it have anything to do with the Stock Market (that’s driven by record profits, productivity, and future economic optimism fueled by the right wingers keeping their nose out of economics (i.e., not obstructing economic progress); nor does it have anything to do with gas prices (that’s a function of world prices and refinery capacity and operation, and to some extent, Wall Street speculation; nor does it have anything to do with taxes. 1929 was largely brought about by total lack of regulation on Wall Street–mostly by excessive stock buying on margin and widespread stock manipulation by a few extremely wealthy investors. That is not the case now…

  • usa8888

    Sicilian—Repeat–the debt has nothing negative to do with recovery. In fact, it’s needed for recovery………..Google “economics” and bring yourself up to the 21st Century……

  • Sicilian Papa

    Keep borrowing USA8888. The problem with socialism is eventually you run out of other peoples money.

    Raise taxes on everyone to pay for O.’s socialist agenda. The Dems will lose power for a generation but it is your only way our USA8888.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I can add USA8888.

  • Sicilian Papa

    What are take about USA8888. The US Government is going to run out of money.

    You have two choices QE4, QE5, QE6 or massive tax hikes. The bubble is going to burst my friend. The train wreck that is Obamanomics is destroying the fiscal health of this country forever.

  • usa8888

    Sicilian–don’t embarrass yourself with these Fox “News” absurd comments about “socialism.” You probably don’t even know what socialism is. Hint: Obama is a sociable person , not a socialist……

  • usa8888

    Sicilian–obviously , you don’t understand economics with a minimal education. Suggest you enroll in the spring semester and stop embarrassing yourself…..

  • Sicilian Papa

    I bet you a million Lira…ah I mean dollars that this will happen USA8888.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I can add USA8888. I also got out of private business because the taxes here in Conn. made it unreasonable to do business for a small business.

  • Sicilian Papa

    How will you balance the budget oh wish and powerful USA8888.

  • usa8888

    Sicilian–a private of business of selling hot dogs or pizza????? You should have teamed up with Palin–she could have brought you some customers…
