    Yes we should let the same market forces (read masters) who screwed this economy up, continue to screw it (and us) up even more.

    Call it "creative destruction" and bob's our uncle, we can all pretend that losing tens of millions of jobs is a good thing.

    Reporting that it's raining (when the rain is obvious) isn't being negative, Stroll, it's merely being accurate.

    You mean Barney Frank and Chris Dodd?

    The economy seems to be bottoming out but no one is talking about job creation. Obamas' plan for paying off the deficit relies on gangbuster growth like in the Bush years. No one I know of is forecasting numbers like that.

    Actually, that's the opposite of what Peter Schiff was saying. Considering it wasn't the free market that got us into this mess.

    Yes. I've heard the news... Hope you aren't buying into it. Sooner or later it's going to be time to pay the fiddler for all the music Obama has us all dancing to. Who do you think might be paying for this mess? Can you see the difference?
