    I have not been so confused since the part in metal gear solid where the game starts going crazy, saying “fission mailed” and telling you to “turn off the game console”
    so… Banks losing money doesnt matter? No fear in the market now or ever?

    The Merc is irrelevant now. The PPT SWAT Team has been dispatched for lock down. Sorry.

    The Fed is now accepting used game boys, the Wii, and the title to your old car at the Fed window.

    Feel free to use the proceeds to buy stocks.

    liberals always win, even when they lose…
    Reagan was considered moderate republican when he ran, now conservatives look at him like he’s the perfect example of a “hardcore conservative.”
    if it was up to true conservatives, there would be no taxes, no federal reserve, no spending, no debt, but no social programs, homeschooling only, the rich would never get taxed, the nation might be rich but only because the rich would be making tons of tax free money so everyone would invest… Food and oil costs might be low, but the rich would just have larger price margins, and lots of monopolies and ogopolies, so the government and people would be rich but everyone else would be poor… Liberals would come in and spend all the money conservatives made, and then some, and the rich would get taxed and money would be passed out to joe average, who would spend it making their lives more full of cars and luxury and everything would be great.
    Bush spends money like a liberal, but on killing and oil. He pays obscene amounts of money for an education program that doesnt work. He is more liberal than our forefathers ever were…
    we need more socialism, letting the rich hog the money doesnt keep the economy going… People should be rewarded for spending, because it allows companies to give money to employees who can spend it and repeat. If we want a thriving economy we need people spending like crazy, the more money people spend the more money people make. High taxes, high minnimum wage, high cash handed out to those who spend on American goods by American retailers, and high amounts of trade.
    this nation will be even better…
    Hillary or obama win, the dems win, mccain wins, the deme still win because he’s twice as liberal as bush who is 3 times more liberal than Reagan. Mccain is more liberal than hillary.
    Mccain will work on the environment, and on eliminating torture, and on lowering gas prices, and increase social programs, and help out average Americans, he’s almost as good of a candidate as obama is…
    face it right wingers, we always win.
    social liberalism prevails

    Gap-
    Early last year, the VIX was at 10. It can fall further. Bulls not worried. Hank Paulson told me so.
