    Wow.. the president single handedly rescued the dow.. It came back to 11k by the end of his press conference...

    If however he keeps blaming all of his shortcomings on the Democrats I would advocate congress goin nukalar on his lame duck ass...

    Consumer driven economy.

    The working class got fucked for the last thirty years, eventually something (like the oil swindle that's happening now) is the final straw that ends the consumer driven economy

    Kramer seems to think there's gold in dem dar natural gas fields, for those of you with disposable income to invest.

    On the bright side, my mailbox is no longer SPAMMED with offers for credit cards.

    Apparently they're beginning to realize that Americans can no longer borrow from Peter to pay Paul.

    Yes, you are seeing correctly.

    Watch it break through 10,000 in the not too distant future.

    Time to buy buy buy baby stocks are on sale.

    The DJI is a compilation of a mere 20 stocks folks so don't get your panties in a twist. there are thousands of other companies that are doing very well even in this "terrible" economy.
