  • I know a guy at work who is 67. His parents were German immigrants who came to Long Beach, California right after WW1. When the depression hit the country, his Dad spent every business day simply walking around looking for a job, any job. (Forget owning a car, no way to afford it. And to ride the bus cost a nickel, and he didn't have a nickel to spare.) For years he did this (he was a war veteran so walking meant nothing to him) but he just couldn't find ANY work at all. My friend's mother More..

  • The stock market is COMPLETELY man-made. If it gets out of control, becomes criminal or it requires "rescue", PEOPLE are to blame. Not fate or circumstance or whatever. Arrest and jail them to stop the market "stumbles" - it will stop stumbling. Simple. Hard to do ONLY when your politicians are OWNED by the criminals.

  • This is great to watch, just finished myself. Its amazing that the man that started General Motors dies with the clothes on his back.

    If you aren't going to watch then....The last two are good.

  • honestly, the american dream is to die dirt poor and be turned into ash into a cardboard box because your to poor to pay for a grave, the rest sold off to pay your debt and your children get billed the rest.

    unless you win the lotto, your never getting out.

    i rather be happy and semi poor then rich and souless

  • Well, I made 105% after the stocks came up in 2009. But I haven't invested since because I don't believe any of the numbers. A lot of times they don't make any sense...they go up with no apparent reason. I think it is still manipulated.

  • Another thanks to the democrats for their ignorance of economics. Unfortunately they are playing the same song again.
