My guess for the next catch phrase is "What the heII do we do now?" YES, WHAT THE HELL DO WE DO NOW? And as we were discussing the stock crash of 1987, it is like a house of cards; When it comes down, IT COMES DOWN FAST! Remember 2008? Was it 3 days? Well, you people who are submerged in the market had damn well better read the tea leaves correctly! Think what a 20% drop would do to you? A 30% drop? It don't have to hit bottom folks! Democrats, Stand Athwart History Yelling "Stop!" At Your Own Peril! (I stole that from resist)

Everyone had better read, or see the movie, Margin Call! Just apply that condition to the pathetic condition (quagmire) our once great nation finds itself in!

In "Margin Call" they saved themselves by selling everything they owned and that in one morning! Which should go first, Alaska? Guam would not make a down payment.
No, they would most likely take all the 401Ks and confiscate bank accounts, replacing them with IOU?

Obama's Zombies would allow anything he does, and with McCain and Graham in the senate, a Republican flip of the Senate would not wrest control from Obama, as they would always have his back.

Government will protect itself at the expense of the people and cull out individuals to attack and make examples of. Expect corruption, loss of freedom, censorship, even less efficiency in the legal system, failing public institutions, crumbling infrastructure, extreme poverty, smaller police force, military-style criminal commandos, and even more blatant corruption, as those left at the helm try to get their's while there is still some to be gotten.

Unemployment at six week low! Manufacturing hits one-and-a-half year high! Dollar trades at six-month-high! North Sea oil offered at three-month low! Oil rises to two month high! Treasury bond yield hits one-month low on fears over Italy! Sun rises fastest in last 23 hours and 50…ah…err…um…ahem….

OK; scratch that last one because unlike the other new highs or lows trumpeted by the press in our real-life examples, the LAST one is just SILLY.

The others are silly too, but they are more than just silly; they are deceptive. And they mean to be deceptive too.

Let’s look...
