I think it's time to stop blaming one party and realize they're all to blame.

I saw similar charts a couple years ago, and guess what? They never panned out.
You saying it doesn't prove anything. Find the graph and post it here. Though I some how doubt you will find it, and even if you do I doubt it will show mirroring anything close to what we are seeing here. Nearly every bump and dip in the graph is being mirrored. It doesn't take a mathematical genius to understand the astronomical odds of those two trends just being so similar by pure coincidence.edit on 5/2/2014 by ChaoticOrder because: (no reason given)

That is a ridiculous generalization of the problem. Historically, republicans are supposed the be the ones promoting anti-socialist ideals such as minimal taxes for the big corporations and the democrats are supposed to be the ones undermining the free market with their wealth redistribution schemes and bailouts for bankrupted businesses. Rand Paul is a republican and so was his father, neither of them support government bailouts or wealth redistribution, but they do support a minimal sized government with minimal tax rates. But they are obviously not the norm within the republican party and what you are saying does have some truth to it. But the fact it does have some truth it just shows how backwards and distant from their party ideals politicians have become.edit on 5/2/2014 by ChaoticOrder because: (no reason given)
Actually, I highly doubt that even 1% of the population is aware of this graph or data similar to it.
This is wrong comparison on so many levels, points on DOW, circumstances , different politics at that time, different scale of power...
Heres my Question;
IF the crash occurs AGAIN, and there is another "Great depression" triggered.
Are we finally going to say enough, and kick BOTH Parties that got us here out of office?
Anyone who currently holds office should be out on the streets for the Current state of this nation,
Every time someone sees a "rep" or "dem" running, by all right we should be laughing our assess off saying "not those A-holes again"
BUT nooooooo we all have to have a Sports team, and we stick by them no matter how #ty they are dont we...
By this point, Anyone who bangs their Two party drum makes me sick.
Yes it most likely will correct itself, but there is a huge difference between 1929 and now.
Even if the market crashed 50%, we have something they didn't back in 1929. A worldwide infrastructure and 7 billion + people.
Back in 1929 they didn't have the means to get things back up and running quickly again, today we do.
I had to cut and past todays results, you can verify the chart by checking the Dows charts and going to McClellan.com for their chart for you own comparison.
In McClellan’s chart, the y-axis for the 1928-29 line (on the right) uses a much different scale from the axis that applies to the current line (on the left). This is what makes the two lines look superficially similar. But if you index both series to their starting points—early July 2012 and mid-February 1928, which aligns the October 1929 crash with mid-January 2014—and put them on the same scale, the results tell a different story
I have been watching it like a hawk and was planning on doing a thread on this good job on the graphic. We all know what is coming we are over due. Maybe a terror attack a sochi will be the kickstart.
