Keep in mind that that stock market jumped 52% in 1954.  Back when the top income tax rate was 90% and the corporate rate was 45%.

Even with those great index returns, I've kicked the crap out this market. I've withdrawn $20,000 from my portfolio in the last couple of months and my portfolio has actually increased in value.

Love it!

Of the 26 primary industrialized nations, our primary stock exchange is #18 of 26. So, while I'm happy, I wish we'd get to the front of that  line.

The annual drops in the famous crash years aren't as dramatic as you'd expect because there were huge run-ups in the early part of those years.
