Are we supposed to listen to YOU? A guy who supported and still supports BUSHCO, the biggest FUBAR administration in US history?

I think you got lost when you turned too far to the right on your way to Conservative Fools.

This tends not to be a political board.

My investments did pretty good under Bush...

When Obama starting talking, my stocks started to peak, then drop like a rock when it looked like he would win.

Things were good until Pelosi/Reid finally did in the housing market with their 'everyone MUST own a house' philosophy, overriding common sense and the BUsh attempts to reform Freddie and Fannie.

Now, as soon as Obama is in, he'll kill all our investments with hyper inflation before the 2012 elections.

He and the dems will be swept out of office in record numbers, and the economy will be in the tank for the next 10 years with all the extra entitlements he'll add.

There are several other boards for political discussion. We don't need one more.

Please take political opinions elsewhere.

RECF has already become a political board. Not ALL the RE boards need to do the same. Take it back there...

Looks like it's time for a reminder of the very useful "Ignore Thread" option. When the trolls come calling, click it immediately and let them talk to themselves.

If the board lists too much gray, start a new thread.

Is this your opinion or is it facts based on some statistical evidence?
If so please provide evidence. Or is it, as I suspect your hope of things to come.

"Is this your opinion or is it facts based on some statistical evidence?"

http://www.csmonitor.com/2008/0521/p06s01-woam.html

"The factors influencing inflation are country-specific, and solutions are debated among economists. But Jerry Haar, a professor at Florida International University and coauthor of the new book "Can Latin America Compete?" says it's no coincidence that the countries with the highest inflations are the same left-leaning countries – Argentina, Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Bolivia – with high public spending
and price controls."


"Even in Argentina, the current, unofficial rate – estimated by economists to be as high as 25 percent – is not catastrophic, but "

"In Venezuela, rising prices – the average inflation rate from March 2007 to March 2008 was 29.1 percent – have also hurt President Hugo Chávez's popularity."

Hey, isn't Obama a left leaning character? you bet......

the writing is on the way.

Pelosi is even more of a left winger, too!

t.



"But the impact is more far-reaching. Luis Alberto Moreno, head of the Inter-American Development Bank, told the Miami Herald recently that inflation is "perhaps the biggest challenge in the hemisphere for countries today."

Nicaragua, which is one of the hardest-hit nations with an inflation rate of 17 percent last year – held a food summit early this month. President Daniel Ortega blamed the crisis on the US and the "tyranny of global capitalism." Venezuela and its allies pledged to create a $100 million food fund.

For now, many countries have, like Argentina, relied on a patchwork of price controls that some embrace and others call "Band-Aid" approaches. President Evo Morales in Bolivia, which reported an annual rate of 11.7 percent in 2007, temporarily prohibited exports of cooking oil last month.

But Napoleon Pacheco, an economist at the Fundacion Milenio in La Paz, Bolivia, says such measures have failed – and the hardest-hit are the poor. "Inflation has the biggest impact on those with limited resources," says Mr. Pacheco. "In surveys the decreased power of salaries is voters' biggest worry." "

We, too, can be like the lib socialist counties....and it will hurt the poor the most..and the middle class will suffer severly too...your retirement vanishes before your eyes.

LOL, I love it when a poster like you adds to a thread simply to say that no one should be posting in the thread.

Did you ever stop to ask yourself, "Say, maybe I shouldn't post in this thread thereby adding to it?" Esp. since you are not addressing the actual topic being discussed at all, just attacking the OP.

There are no "rules" that say this board is "non-political". Destroying the economy is going to affect my retirement so I say it's relevant.

You're free to ignore threads or posters who you don't want to read, I'm sure you know.

LOL at internet strangers who think they have any right to tell other people what they can/can't post on a message board.

My OP could have been worded differently to appear a little less troll-like. For example, the subject line could have been:

Investing for the next decade

And then I could have said that I expect a big bull market recovery to begin in the next six months or so as they always do after big bear markets (except when WWII put a damper on things). And then I could have said that I checked out the CBO report that said that the Democrats' programs will help the economy in the short run and then drive it into the ground. And then I could have said that in light of this report plus actually knowing what has happened in the past when such policies were implemented, I plan to cash out a lot of my US stocks after the anticipated run-up and move into something else since the US economy will no longer have the vitality it used to have. And I could have provided a link to show what kind of additional damage a cap-and-trade system will wreak on the economy. And I could have said I was considering gold, emerging markets, etc., and possibly Treasuries when their interest rates skyrocket due to the inflation the massive borrowing for the stimulus package will trigger.

That would have appeared more on-topic while providing the same information. And would have met with the same fingers in the ears and the loud singing of la la la la.

You're totally missing the point about "free speech". Seems to me there was even a Supreme Court ruling on this topic. I don't believe that ruling said you could say anything you want anywhere. Might want to check that out a little.

solutions are debated among economists

I agree with you there. Some economists are saying that the stimulus bill is not big enough!

You must limit yourself to only liberal news sources, because I've heard *extensive* criticism about this bloated piece of crap.
