  1. Dow passed 24,000

    When one gives credit or blame to a particular politician or party, it's political. That static means zip. Where was the market before the crash? The passing of time and fear, had more to do with the recovery of the market/economy. US/world economy has many more aspects influencing it than whether the US President has an R or a D behind his name. So what policies did he enact that made a difference? BK

  4. Dow passed 24,000

    Total BS, the stock market was blowing bubbles for years, until the November election. Weather the market's hopes come true or not is another question. BK PS: I wondered how long it would take this discussion to get political.
  5. Dow passed 24,000

    The Dow is 30 companies, and that mix gets shuffled from time to time. The S&P, of course is 500 companies, but there're all "in the stock market", there're a ton of indexes, from 30 to thousands, large cap, small cap, mid cap, growth, value, the list goes on forever. BK
  6. Dow passed 24,000

    I believe that 5% is a little low. From what I've read, it's more around 50%. Mutual funds, IRAs, all kinds of company and private retirement programs own stocks. The same thing with bonds. I've been in the stock marked since 1982, when the market dumps, I buy, the rest of the time I let it ride. I also have bonds and gold. I started out with a $50 per month allotment into a boring mutual fund, early in my military career. Keeps me in motorcycle gas, and sure beats working for a living BK

  16. Colonoscopy by Dave Barry

    Been there, done that, TWICE!! The prep is the killer. After my first one, I woke up in the recovery room. Nurse and wife were there, asked me how I felt, I said fine, sit up, swung my feet around, slid off the bed..... and went clean to the floor. The second one... I stayed on the bed. BK

    Good stuff, those early tractors didn't look too streamline, but it sure beat following the south end of a horse, heading north. BK
