    If I were you, I'd take all my money out of the Market.

    Think of all the money you've lost since March 2009.
    If you find yourself Angry, Bitter and Vindictive every day, all day on Political Forums because you no longer feel privileged or because you lost an Election over 5 years ago then you really need a life.

    Business count on raising money from the stock market to build and hire people. That is why they go public is to raise funds. If this continues for just 3 more days we could be looking at a major reduction in capital that can be used to grow mid size business.

    Mid and small businesses are responsible for 70% of jobs. If people are unwilling to invest in them do to higher taxes or uncertainty than it will be much harder to grow the work force in the US.

    You can say punish the successful people but I never got a job from a poor person...

    Perhaps the third paragraph under 'Today's markets' has something to do with it.

    Something, yes. If you believe Barack Hussein Obama actually does anything for America as a nation, you're an imbecile. You and almost have the country.

    The best thing he has done for us is to not keep any of the insanely Communist promises he made in his first campaign.

    :
    "We respect and have a whole bunch of safeguards in terms of how we conduct counter-terrorism operations outside of the United States. The rules outside of the United States are going to be different than the rules inside of the United States."
    - Barack Hussein Obama


    That means
    NO safeguards.

    I care not what he has or hasn't done for the US. My view is that he is keeping out of western foreign affairs far more than his predecessor which is a plus for the rest of us.

    What happens in the world affects us. We are intertwined and can never break apart from what happens in the world. Our economy is built on selling goods around the world. Our market is not big enough to support the people in it with out exporting. Even back when this country was founded we exported goods like cotton.

    Please explain to me how turning a blind eye to the rest of the world helps us?

    Also, just to show how silly this whole "the sky is falling" shit is, if conservative bedshitters were smart, and they clearly are not, they would be investing in the stock market by selling short.

    Again, which I wouldn't mind seeing. A transfer of wealth from idiocy to sanity.
