    I view our current economic situation as better than it was in 2008, but still not great.
    Maybe you're buying foreclosed homes and collecting rent. Folks doing that are better off than 2008 at the expense of the middle class that fell for the allure easy financing caused by government intervention on home loans that resulted the housing bubble. Or maybe you're one of the few that went to cash in 07-08 and back in the market in 09. Lots of ways to make money in a down economy if you have cash or political connections to get "Green Money" None of it actually produces anything. Something to think about.

    Seems many here won't admit that they are better off than they were in 08, 9 or 10.

    For the record, I did much better in 11 and 12 than in previous years.

    Sure, it's his fault for everything... OOPS... I forgot: not if it's good.

    My "rude nonsense" was in response to your out-of-touch view that the economy is actually better then in 2008. As a whole it is not!

    Good for you and your success. I have done better the past couple years too, but I don't attribute it to the Owebama economy. Most businesses have suffered if not gone bust, and that's a fact.

    And you'd better watch out, CVX will be along any minute to call you an evil rich guy.

    I am NOT better off now, and I will admit it.
