Five Years ago the Dow closed at 14,164. The highest it has ever closed.

Six years ago I was telling everybody the stock market was going to crash--HARD. Hopefully, it would stop near 6000. If not at 6000, then about 3000.

ALL the conservatives laughed and made lots of jokes about it.

As the Dow began its fall five years ago and Bear Stearns went into bankruptcy, the right suddenly stopped laughing. When the Dow stopped in the mid-6000s, they still did not respond to any comments. Ever wonder where they ended up? Nope. Their claims--their losses. LOL !!!
