Bush was a lousy president - Obama is worse. If we don't stop his social justice campaign this country is going down to the same level as Europe. It is all about wealth redistribution. I'm not rich or poor, I just want to keep what is mine. Common sense and capitalism is what is needed for us to continue to live the sweet life we have in the United States. Don't let the politicians piss it all away.
Bull*****!! The market crashed because of the termoil in Greece & EU. Everyone better be watching whats happing over there because it will soon be happening here. Greece is being forced to end the entitlement mentality of the general public and everyone is pissed off the being taken off the teat. If our cuurent president continues on the same path he's on, Greece is goung to look tame compared to what will happen here in the US. When the tax takers, i.e welfare and govt. employees, out number the tax PAYER we are screwed. Why any farmer would vote for a democrat just puzzles me?? Remember, When you vote for a democrat, you are voting with every lazy, non-woking, union member in this country.
Impossible. There is no way the trading systems are so poorly designed they easily slip by a 15 BILLION SHARE sell order and not set some kind of major alarm for the company? If that's the case some other trader could easily but in 15T (trillion) and crash the entire stock market.
