    oh, so this is just another bash-Obama thread.

    btw, what does "cayous" in the Middle East have to do with how you personally are doing?

    I like how you mention finish grad school and the house (congrats on both of those), but not the kid.

    So yeah I'd say I'm better off.
    Three years ago is not long at all, its like yesterday.

    It scares the hell out of me.....If you don't believe a nuclear war in the mid east affects you then you are much more naive the I ever thought.......

    Three years ago I would have been finishing my Sophomore year in college and my capstone project and getting ready to start my internship in DC and look for an apartment in Boston for the next school year. Now I have graduated college, have a job just to make some money and have applied and waitlisted at some graduate and law schools and potentially one big scholarship from a law school that I have to hear back from. I would say life is about the same.

    That's just some piss poor investing, right there. On 4/24/09 the Dow closed at 8,076.29; the NASDAQ at 1,694.29; and the S & P 500 was at 866.22. Today, as I write this post, they are at 12,992; 2,957; and 1370 respectively.

    Why haven't you fired your investment adviser?

    one friend bought a very big and nice house in the Vienna suburb of DC.

    another friend bought a $600,000 apartment in Manhattan.

    I bought a new car.

    what can I say? I'm surrounded by happy & successful people.

    Financially speaking, he's a drain on the coffers. I can afford him now, though.
