Yep, it's called paper money.

They print all they want and lend it out at artificially low rates.

When they do that the value of the US Dollar and your 401K, which is valued in dollars, looses its buying power.

Go ahead...cash that 401K in for gold.

See how much you get.
What would it look like if it was stagnant and unresponsive to the markets?

This is rich. Perhaps you should learn a little bit more about investing. The fact that Obama has harmed the US economy has made me alot of money during his four years, but has harmed the aggregate of America.

Unemployment at 8.5%
Real unemployment over 20%
Record number of people on foodstamps
record foreclosures
US manufacturing declining
restrictions on US energy refining and exploration
increased corporate regulations
continued trade deficits with no negotiations on NAFTA or China


Yes, Obama is great, if you hate America and want to doom your children to servitude. Wake up- a socialist community organizer should never have been placed in the highest office in the land and his dismal failure is evidence of this. If he is re-elected, the national debt will stand at $24 trillion with only default and or anarchy as a result. Liberals WANT THIS such that they may usher in a socialist/communist regime.

Wake up- the leftists are the worst enemy of the middle class.

It won't....these are the programmed drones...the idiots who simply recite the same drivel and expect that just becasue they say it....then it is truth. They don't present facts because they don't have any. Arguing with or against them is senseless....because in order to truly have a rational discussion, you have to be exchanging with someone who is playing with a full deck. That is decidedly NOT the case when talking to these dopes.

I suggest you simply sit back and laugh at them as I do. After all...seeimg a complete idiot doesn't happen every day...but seeing one trying to form complete sentences is a rare chance to laugh out loud until you cry.

I was just thinking the same thing whenever I read that post.. It's unbelievable isn't it.. He hasn't moved a meaningful piece of legislation through in how long.. Although, it's his policies that are making the difference.

I still think everyone should have to take a competency test before they vote!

They certainly are. Despite their best efforts the U.S. economy continues to recover, and my 401K is going through the roof.

Labor participation rates? Not sure how that affects my 401K's bottom line, but it has steadily been rising since Bush left office, the last 6 months have been the best.

I agree. Mine has shown steady gains for the last year.

That makes even less sense than the OP's posting.. Congragulations, I thought that was impossible.

How does Congress doing nothing to help Obamas policies succeed, equate to Obamas policies being a success, considering Obama cant get any policies through without Congress..
