    I can't speak for business per say, as I am not self employed, but my income has increased 42% since 1/20/2009.

    Not that means squat about squat.....but my "economy" has improved.

    In 2008, around 50% of my business was done in the US.......it is no zero outside of the occaisional out of warranty replacement part.

    the funny part is that 75% of my clients are headquartered in the US......think about it

    100% of my business is domestic and has never been better.

    I'm happy your business is doing better. I'm happier that GM's is also doing better. Look at their last few quarterly earning reports "Strength in America, weakness overseas".

    Going from Dow 6-7K to Dow 12-13K in slightly more than 3 years is a far better macro indicator than your or my individual businesses. Hopefully, you don't have Euro clients.

    In the meantime, I haven't seen a "Gas Prices To Hit $5 This Year!!!!" thread in WEEKS.

    Where'd they go?

    Yeah poor Obama it's not like there are 88 million Americans not in the workforce or something and gas prices have only doubled since he came into office....



    Hoisted on his pwn petard I love it.

    My son and two of my brother-in-laws who were out of work in 2009 are now all working full time jobs - with benefits.

    Gas prices had plunged just before he took office, so looking at that one point in time is a bi misleading.

    Were you concerned w/gas prices under Bush?


    So you love that people are unemployed and gas prices are high?

    He said so, didn't he?

    I, for one, am not surprised, either. Are you?

    Hey, look at what the idiot tea party Rep you reflexively defend said today:

    “I look at what happened between President Obama and President Karzai as a 1930s, Chamberlain, Hitler moment,” West told radio host Frank Gaffney. “There is not going to be peace in our time.”

    You going to excuse him again?

    I'm just curious what his answer will be, since it's a pretty simple question. Despite its simplicity, I expect that it will be side-stepped, as usual.

    To you, gas prices doubling are as important as the stock market doubling, but to each his own.

    One is far more important to the working poor& middle class, the other is far more important to the 1%. We see which side you are on.

    The stock market is a play ground of the 1%?

    I know many people, who are not in the 1%, who partake in the Stock Market, me being one.

    Plus, wouldn't anyone with a 401(k) find the stock market important?

    Just looking for clarification
