The Soapbox is gone? Could've fooled me...

Maybe the Prez should appoint Cramer as "Minister of Investments". Or tell everyone to buy gold...

Perhaps there are different ways to to juice the economy.

One of my favorite quotes: "There is more than one road to Dublin"

It applies to more than just investing.

Yes, but that does not mean that *any* road leads to Dublin ("we have to do *something*").

And I'm sure that some of the people in Leinster know that some roads lead *away* from Dublin.

One of my favorite quotes: "You must choose,.... but choose wisely."



"he chose.... poooorly". So understated, perfect!

I do not know if I want to take financial advice from someone who does not know the definition of P/E ratio , someone who took the seizures of the market as gyrations. ( and I thought the dumb guy was gone from the White House !) You cannot see your bottom until you take your head out of it.

Well, he did get a P, as well an an E. He's more a verbal guy than a number man.

I guess are last POTUS, with the Harvard MBA, must have been more of a numbers guy. Scary thought what if his math ability were worse than his verbal ability. The things that really terrifies me is after listening to the Congress critters on the banking and appropriation committee, both President Bush, and President Obama, sound like financial rocket scientist compared to the average Congressman

If you would like to throw mud at the current or past administration, please go here. While discussions of FIRE related political policy are welcome, political posts unrelated to FIRE are not permitted on ER.Org.
