  1. Thing is, Chrissy, HOW can that happen, i.e., that her wealth could triple in three years?!?! Sure, in other times, that could have happened in, for example a real estate boom, but has there been any explanation of HOW THIS WEALTH was accumulated? (Of course it may be out there, somewhere, I’m just lazy because I know Chrissy knows soooooooooooo much = )

    And, LOL, you know those sayings like “I get fat just looking at food”? Well, when applied to you, it’s like you produce graphs and charts of explanations if someone just whispers an idea in passing. NICE WORK!

      🙂 Thanks, Integ. I do get a lot of inspiration from youse guys, esp Pill (Hi, Red!!) lately. He gets the coolest data for me and it acts like spinach in Popeye. LOL

      Can’t answer the how though. I just looked up her net worth numbers, which are part of her required financial disclosures. Anything deeper would have to come from someone who can dig out and understand that kind of thing … if, in fact, it’s even publicly available.

    Well, all Nancy had to do was buy stock in Apple Computer in the winter of 2009 and she would have more than tripled that investment. I think there are any number of companies that might have offered a similar return in that time frame. If you knew enough to be out of the market in the fall of 2008, you could come sweeping back in, in the spring of 2009 (if you had enough nerve) and made some real money. I didn’t have the nerve to do it on any kind of big scale, but it is easy for me to see how the wealthy who can afford to risk it could have made out very, very well in the last 2 years. I think that is what bothers me so much about the way things are going – it is the middle class that is getting the squeeze, and it is going to be a lot harder to pull out of this mess because of it. As I commented in some other thread, despair is going to be very hard to overcome, and we have to in order to get the economy moving upward. Of course, it goes without saying that it will also take a new administration, too. And a new tax structure, in my opinion.

    I like how Perry explained Texas’ success. Low taxes, regulations that make sense, and a fair justice system.

    • Ooohhh Chrissy, can you post a link to that? That needs to be hammered to death. As to Red Pill, his breadth and depth amaze me.

      Ting, I know you’re right about the opportunities, but I personally know many very wealthy who did all they could to wait it out and break even on the comeback. It would have been a very, very select few who tripled their money in such a way, and I think it very unlikely Nancy pants could achieve such returns on the up and up. It needs further probing, but, of course, I’m not a good sluether. Quite the curiousity though.

  4. You’re too funny. I’ll have the #3 with the gray scaling and a black backdrop accentuated with some watermarks on the top and bottom punctuated with red type in the relevant areas.

    I too, have no clue what I’m talking about. I just wanted to put in my “custom” order to Chrissy the Hyphenated!
