This is all part of the natural self-correcting system.

If you are ethical, you have nothing to fear.

“Outweighed data.”

Nice try. The data is jobs, which is only positive because sandy kept claims from happening. Will be corrected next week.

Don’t listen to lamestream media.

Wall Street demands third bailout. Threatens to scratch its own face until the government hands out the money. Good times.

There is nothing to worry about. McConnell, Norquest, Ryan and Boehmer are on it. We have nothing to fear.

Wall Street falls on fear that recent layoffs in Syrian and Tunisian felaffel industries will lead to glut of cooking oil driving down prices for commodities in India thusly affecting American jobs by enhancing the need for outsourcing.

Pretty normal… before the err election “recover” started, DJ was 11.8k nikkei 8.2k… still far away from the economic reality…
When the jobs data come back to normal, those 800.000 people that put the number down from 8.2 to 7.8 must return in some way… lets see if they will be blunt or creative in putting the number back…
At least you still have the emergency oil stockpile and didint waste it trying to low the prices just for the election…
It could be worse… Bernanke could had wasted another trillion buying toxic assets from the subprime bubble… instead he “only” wastes 40 bi a month…
The housing will show us some err “surprise” over the next days as all economic indicators will…
