To all the O supporters complaining about the Romney tax plan, are you forgetting the Supreme Court passed Obamacare on the fact that it is a "TAX"? Even though they lied and said it wasn't a TAX!!!!

I guess most people today only vote on what they think will personally benefit them not the country. Both parties have gotten us in this mess for years with all the voting of bills behind the scenes but it's time the people took back the control, and yes even if we have to vote for a party other than we would choose in good economic times. There's not much in our system that doesn't need reforming these days. Why can't someone get a job and just get partial help for health, why do you have to take the whole thing or nothing? Why can't they pass "Tort Reform" to help lower medical expenses?

The Fed is the one inflating the markets by printing more money and buying up bonds with it.  Obama takes care of the rich on Wall Street but lies to Main Street.  "I cut taxes on the middle class"  no Mr Obama you just cut my Social Security donations i.e. payroll taxes but there has been no cut in my income taxes.  I had insurance when you took office but now I don't cause it is too expensive...  I could go on and on ......

James Blond 007, you have a credibility issue here.  Where do you get your facts about Romney?  Show us support for each of the claims you just made.

Sluggish pace of recovery is an understatement.  There were approximatley 10,000 jobs created last month and twice that amount jobs lost. 

The economy will not heal until we get an energetic experienced professional in the whitehouse that speaks the truth.

No Cow Boy, the Dems could not manipulate the Market. They can cheat on the unemployment numbers however, and tweak them, right after a bad performance by Obama, which could have a mild affect on the Market. These stock prices are way to complicated to be manipulated, even by a bunch of Socialists. Once they get the Government running everything, there will be no businesses at all. And the only ones able to live well, will be the top Government workers. This is how Russia fell. The Socialist experiment always fails, but as long as you have people that are a little stupid and a lot lazy and do not understand the concept of self Reliance, you will have this push to Socialism.

I thought I'd "missed the boat" when I bought APPL at $126 several years ago.  I was scoffed at by so called experts when I kept buying Apple on market corrections, but I think it's paid off handsomely.

I don't even mess around with market research anymore.  I now invest the Forest Gump/Warren Buffet way:  Buy as much APPL as you can, then keep it forever.  Any company with that much cash, that much vision, that much growth and that low a P/E is a gift to the patient investor, imo.

Hey james bond  Where did you get your facts?  Most of waht you said is straight from the

Obama media.

 

Listen to what hes actually says about the 47%.  He said that there are 47% who will not vote

for him period and he could not worry about them.  It is ion fact 47% who are in some way dependent

on the government.  When it hits 51% we will go the same way as all of Europe.  Living off

the dwindling number of people who actually work for a living until they decide to latch on also.

Where does the money come from then?

Its easy to exclaim after the fact. Its the reason I fired my A. G. Edwards advisor 20 years ago and learned how to do it myself. Im not telling you how either. I do realize however that you didn't present it as a sales pitch.

Coincident?  I was in a 401k with a well know company watching my investment growing at a steady pace.  Earning almost eight hundred a month on my portfolio, and a cash offer to retire after four decades of work.  And the year was 2007 and everything was looking up.  Even my home was worth $164k  And Bang! 2008 Obama was elected, the czar he placed to oversee my company stole fifteen thousand bucks from me took away my eye and dental plan.  Housing market crash, home repos hit at a new high.   Now, how's that for Barrack Obama?      looking out for seniors?  B.S.         If that idiot gets reelected forget about retirement.
