"Starting to think"? LOL. Yes, it's BS. However, with the runup of the stock market the last few years I have made gains like that across the board. But it has nothing to do with my skills and everything to do with "when you got into the market". Getting in now will yield gains (I think) but nobody has a crystal ball.

There is no "guy". Open a Scottrade account and start investing.

Do you have a 401K, pension or any kind of retirement benefit? If so, then you're in the casino with the rich crowd.

Why does everyone refer to the "financial crisis" as an event that "happened" in 2008. what bench marked that year...just curious. In my industry (Utility Service) you could see it happening the first quarter of 2006.

Our economy will ALWAYS be vulnerable to these sort of "right sizing" events because of credit. The fact of an economy so entrenched in speculation demands correction.

Don't discount May's monthly job report of 280,000. 200,000 is good, 250,000 is great.

Agree.

There were rumblings summer 2005. I liquidated all real estate by January 2006 and went into rental mode. From there, it took 2 years of decline before the bottom fell out. It was blatantly obvious.

That growth was primarily in the service sector which shows the job market is on the mend. Another good sign is car sales are on track to hit a 10-year high. Hard to find a better indicator that consumers are willing to purchase and lenders are willing to lend.
