I have no problem with that. As I said before, I based my assessment on their condition on economic principles and years of experience and nothing has changed to make that opinion change.

Do we know the history and experience of 949 random adults in that polling group? Do we know how much information they have assimilated on the subject or how much they have considered the options?

I'm good with my decision. I don't have a requirement to need to always be in the majority when it comes to my deliberations and thoughts.

That poll of 949 does nothing to stop a position of majority opinion. That only says that, of those specific 949 people those were the views.

But I am not worried. Folks will be happy again once they see their 401Ks coming back. Right now they are railing against the machine.

I never left it. But that's not the point.

The stock market serve two purposes. It will have an initial run that will boost confidence then most likely will flatten or have very slow growth for a year or so. That will help kickstart the economy. It will then fire back up to serve as a lagging indicator as a couple of growing quarters get under our belt.

And the good part is, we have had so many shitty quarters, it won't take much to have "good" quarters.

Best case scenario.
