Just got a quarterly notice from one of my mutual funds and was delighted to learn that 27% of it has disappeared since January 2008. It's not a huge deal since, like most Americans, I only dabble in the market for the sport of it, and in no way rely on these investments to keep me in prune juice in my twilight years.
Sorry. Blah blah blah, right? No one is concerned about their shrinking investments these days. BOOOORRRIINNNGGGG.
What we need in these most trying of times are good old-fashioned character attacks. Because despite what some would like you to believe, character matters. And history has proven that the best presidents are the ones who profess to care about "honor" and "dignity", and make those themes a cornerstone of their campaigns.
