Bro, so much of your money is tied up in the stock market and likely index funds in general.

And as smart as you have lived your life and been responsible, you have likely looked at your accounts and seen remarkable increases towards your NET worth. Like century record gains. Guys like you in your 70's have gained the most financially during the Trump presidency.

A 40% gain in ANY OF OUR lives during the retirement years. That is like a gift from God. And yet you still bitch and moan.

I mean, seriously, how much more do you really want? Coming up from the difficult beginning that we have discussed and coming upon this. You should be really happy about how 2017 has treated you and leave all the personal bs behind.


I'm not aware that I've bitched and moaned about my financial status. I am better off and more secure than a lot of folks. I feel lucky for that.

My financial picture isn't as rosy as you make it out to be. The bulk of my income is from a PERS guaranteed annuity. Increases are limited to 8% at the top and 6 1/2% is the bottom. I retired at 66 and I collect SSI. SSI doesn't increase much regardless of what the market is doing. I am required to take a distribution from my investment accounts each year, which is taxed. When the market is doing great, I pretty much stay on an even keel give or take a few hundred dollars.  I inherited mineral rights on some oil and gas producing land which pay negligible royalties. The best hope is that they start producing better. Then I would have they option of selling.

You know how bad it is with some folks?  When I talk about the market, consumer confidence, growth, etc., they say "it's not about money."  As if now the economy doesn't matter.  In one sense, it's sad to see how dogmatic and hateful people can be.

It's astonishing how many people refuse to recognize and/or acknowledge when things are good, or at least substantially better than they've been in recent times.

I agree.


And, especially when that refusal stems from a personal dislike of the person in the driver's seat.
One's personal opinion should not override the admission of incontrovertible fact.

THAT is denial.

It would be easier to accept if the person bragging about it was being honest instead of exaggerating the circumstances or inflating the numbers.

Amazon posts largest profit in its history on sales, tax boost
Jeffrey Dastin, Aishwarya Venugopal
FEBRUARY 1, 2018

(Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc on Thursday reported a profit near $2 billion, the largest in its history, as the online retailer drew millions of new customers to its Prime fast-shipping club for the holiday season and as changes to U.S. tax law added to its bottom line.

Shares rose more than 6 percent in extended trading, after previously closing down 4 percent on the Nasdaq.

This illustrates the point I alluded to above:
People will diminish or flat out ignore the significance of this account - and many more like it - simply because of their personal dislike for Trump.

It seems extremely childish and pathetic when, amidst the plethora of wildly successful effects we've seen thus far, the standard retort is that Trump "is a jerk."

No one can dispute or ridicule the results, so they call him names or make fun of his hair... Nothing of substance possible, which is why it's so laughable and sad.

I completely agree.  I didn't like Trump either, but I got over it and have been focused on what he has been doing as POTUS.  The results are just staggering.  At this point, I'm not sure any of the other GOP candidates could have accomplished what he has done in just one year.

Yeah.  Character assassination will only get them so far, as the 2016 election showed.  Really interested to see what happens this November.

I feel the same way.  No way could some other GOP do this, because they are scared.

Trump follows the theory that if he says something loud enough and enough times, people will start to believe it. Apparently, his base does.

Me too. Historically there's been big changes/upsets in Congress in mid-term elections. It is common for a presidentís party to lose out in mid-term elections.
