Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    ​I’ve got all my fingers crossed, arms crossed legs double crossed…

    ​…I’ve been double crossed by Obama!​ and his trickery!!! Stay the course. Buy as much gold as you can from the people who are so desperate for you to have it, they advertise it to you on TV.

    The post-2001 net worth increase includes the creation of the housing bubble. The post-2009 net worth increase had to recover from both a 2001 magnitude stock crash and the housing crash in 2006-9. I suspect that many people have still not recovered their net worth peak from 2005-2006 timeframe.

    As in the previous post, the government spending graph shows more evidence of current idiotic austerity, as opposed to Reagan’s 21.6% increase in government spending; no wonder it was “morning in America!”
