    Oh yeah? Warren Buffet bought $5 billion worth of prefered stock of Morgan Stanley when it was trading around $35/share.

    MS down - 17.37% today to $18.30.

    He's lost billions of dollars. I don't think he's very happy about that either.

    Prize has not been rewarded yet. But it will be soon. They are putting Publisher's Clearing House Prize patrol out of business, next?

    Hell! I don't know. You are smart - you figured this one out. :eusa_eh:

    and I suppose the McCain supporters would be dancing a jig over a terrorist attack? these comments are just stupid.

    I'm an Obama supporter and I'm not happy about the DOW crashing again so STFU and don't act like you can speak for the Obama supporters.

    That's because the steps the government and Federal Reserve keep taking are only prolonging the problem and making it worse in the long run.

    Keep printing money and running up the deficit, that'll solve everything... :doubt:

    David .... I have been thinking about what you said about Buffett. He is "playing the game too". This game obviously is not for sissy's .... just the stupid sissy's that try to take advantage of it while the gettin is good. He lost this round .... he should not be surprised either. You would think that someone as smart as he is would never have invested that much into it? No? That is just plain fluckin nutz! :cuckoo:
