    Don't worry. It's just like a political tracking poll. So sayeth the man behind the curtain.
    ************************************************
    "The stock market is sort of like a tracking poll in politics,'' said the president, whose own public job approval has been running at about two-thirds in the Gallup Poll's daily tracking surveys. "It bobs up and down every day... if you spend your time worrying about that, you're probably going to get the long-term strategy wrong.''

    How about we all start investing in American companies? If the guys on Wallstreet see we stopped investing in Europe and Asia and we are completely investing in America, maybe that'll wake them up.

    I'm switching all my investments to American companies. Fuck it.

    And I'm buying REALLY CHEAP!!! You people hording your money will be sorry.

    So making money is not an indicator of economic health? I stand corrected.

    Did he happen to say what is? Or is that an inconvenient truth

    Can't say I know what those are or what they are good for. Perhaps you may enlighten me.

    All I know is I think I have one more little green mark than yesterday.

    Is that a good thing Or is it how many offenses are against me?
