ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Many of us remember when the tech bubble burst. We watched as our savings evaporated seemingly overnight. But we stayed in the game. We changed investment advisers and diversified our portfolios only to see our savings wiped out a second time when the housing bubble burst.

Forgive me if my confidence in the market has disappeared with my savings. Evidently the playing field is not level. It’s tilted in favor of the crooks on Wall Street or the crooks in Washington. Corruption is so ingrained in our system that no amount of regulation or stimulus spending will change my opinion. The crooks are the only “winners” in this game, and I refuse to play anymore.
