I hate to play into trolls such as blue, but I wanted to confirm that the Bush Economy is definately at a milestone:

NEW YORK (Reuters)

Consumer bankruptcies set record in 2005: study

"Filings rose 31.6 percent from 1.55 million in 2004, with increases in every U.S. state and double-digit percentage increases in every geographic region, according to Lundquist Consulting Inc., a financial research firm. One in every 53 households filed for court protection, the firm said."

But at least these 1 in 53 households can take comfort in the fact that the Dow is over 11,000 for the first time and blue's "noble" portfolio is looking good, right??

Salaries aren't keeping up with inflation during what is supposedly a boom cycle. Huh.

anyone else half-hoping for the dollar to collapse this year?  it would make overseas travel a real pain but man i think we as a country collectively deserve it. 

No!!!! Wait till after I go to Europe please.
