    Are... you... being serious anymore? Just pretend for one second you're still a rational person who is looking at things from a perspective that is non-partisan. Are you REALLY using a poll where one guy deleting his browser cookies could have voted over and over again? I just voted and it gave me this:

    This is not a scientific poll.

    And we all know that some little pissant website for Madison, Connecticut is a representative sample of the United States voters.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    What I find interesting is that most of those who are doing worse in this forum are right-leaning politically.

    I'm sure a lot of them are just saying that because they want to claim Obama made it worse. That's the only reason NP posted the poll in the first place, after all.

    If you're incapable of making money in the stock market over the last 3 years, you should fire whomever it is who manages your portfolio immediately.

    I suspect you're right. That's the reason online polls like this one are completely meaningless.

    But...but...but I thought only the 1% realized gains from an improving market. How does this improve the other 99%

    I had a buddy graduate law school in 2008. He worked tables for a year and a half before a crappy law position opened up under a boss that was universally loathed. Good luck Pash.

    So you use a poll that is equally unscientific, and that asks a different question. Well done!
