ya got to be careful about extrapolating poll information from this website to the general public - for example, this poll //www.city-data.com/forum/educa...e-degrees.html - when in reality only about 28% of folks age 25 and older have bachelors degrees.

your analysis is absolutly incorrect. Get passed the racially driven paranoia and get down to economics. There is NO way things will change in a year, regardless of who is in office or what they do. This fix will take a LONG time.

If it was not correct then I would not have said it. What are ya arguing about? Im on your side. I agree with every thing you said. I also know this bum people are voting in there is going to make it worse. What did I say that was racially driven? I said nothing bad about that racist pig. I only said his name and where he puts his money....soon to be our money when he gets his greasy mitts into our tax kitty.

By the way I did loose 3 years on that chart I guess from screen print and it being a java app. If anyone would like to see the full graph:
.DJI - DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE INDEX - Google Finance
The stock market usually leads the economy by about 6 months. When you see it start to go up again, happy days are about 6 months down the road.

I already did. Just look back to post #37. It just dont get any more accurate then that. And by the amount of REPs I got and DMs from that one post it's obvious that many agree with me.

just look at the slope...

about 30* you say....without the speed square it's a guess but for relevance.

Look at the years where it seems take an uprising.

Look at where it settles after those bubbles burst.

Then tell me is the free market society and capitalism self correcting?


By the way before you answer that remove the bubble burst and loom at what angle the market would have risen? still 30*?

Sorry I'm on a lap top or I would put the actual degree sign.

And no offense to you but when it comes down to an economic depression and there is only basic money for schools, Science is about as important as learning to count rainbows. It will be the first to be cut. Dont think it cant happen.
I know that when things take a downturn everything may be up for grabs. From what little I know this country is lacking in innovation, which had been one of our strengths, because so many students are ignorant in the fields of math and science. Schools are crying out for good teachers in these fields and have been for a long time.

I think English and Math and Science should be fairly secure.

For the one person who said they work for a bank and if they go under they will just go to another bank. Well whataya gona do when all the banks go under?

Today that large bank in Indianapolis just went under. That is the 5th large bank to bite the dust this year. All of last year just 3 banks bit the dust and we are only half done with this year. Some predict at least 3 more banks this year will fold up.
Yes, and the mortgage fiasco that triggered everything was itself triggered by doing away with government regulation of the financial markets - regulations that were put there after the first depression, in 1930 to prevent another.

A crash almost looks engineered. A fool could have foretold it.

And then we have a Presidential candidate who says he does not know much about economics. Why is he running? Wasn't this same person involved in a financial scandal way back when? Didn't that have to do with banking?

Lordy, how this whole thing stinks to high heavern!
