I know I am and I am not a "bankster", whatever that is. But my 401k is going through the roof. If that keeps up, I may be able to retire sooner than I had planner.

Did not know that. And still don't know that as all I have to base my opinion about it is some unintelligible babble from a left wing lunatic.

Please tell me you are not one of these idiots that are not profiting from this economy. Are you telling us that you do not have a 401K, or simple IRA? If you do, than you are profiting from this economy. Or maybe you are part of the 1% that you despise.

Which is it? Some people here think you live in your mom's basement, and that would make sense as to why you think only 1% of Americans are profiting. That, and you would have to be a deaf, blind, partisan liberal.
