I would suggest that every one put their money in stocks now while the price is low then when it's high the very same day your rich.

Do the same thing the very next day and so on.

I can't see the problem?

these guys and their morbid financial results show that stock picking should be left to monkeys throwing darts at a board with company names taped on it.

They're all Warren Buffet wanna bes. Amatuers. Remember, no one can predict a market bottom. That would be akin to catching a falling knife. Go figure.

Well it's indeed quite cheap at the moment and I really don't see the reason why not to buy some stocks and hold it for a while at least, I mean, yes there is potential of dollar system collapse in the future, be it happening in this financial crisis or next. But the thing is as long as all the debts are paid by the government or after those who can't get their money back go bankcrupt, I believe the market condition will be back to normal sooner or later, it's just possibly not now, but I really can't see how much deeper recession will it drift into.

The question would be what do you do with all the money stuffed down that G-string.

How about giving us all a laugh and tell us what you would invest in. Probably some terrorist backed company. isn't that right Traitorous Pig Remember your posts from a military town's threads.

Cal I so agree. The marines have major problems with lowered standards. Bush needs bodies to throw at the insurgents who have won

#2220
But I now see on tv that American troops are on the run after shi'ite militas fired shells at the green Compound. I thought thta petraeus had won the war. We are losing this war...badly. And in Afghanistan, where the terrorists that attacked us, they are winning again.

#2223
Our club is just jambed full with lines at the door. Our girls are popular, attractive and smart. But it is the conversations they like most. many of the men are anxious, tense, tired, and scared. They also despise Bush for his lies and American subservience to israeli interests. They know our rich will not fight..just the poor who need the cash bonuses. It is so unfair.

#2228
I grew up in single mom trailor poverty. But I am working and improving myself. I love North dakota and many of us there are learning the truth of why Bush failed to heed multiple warnings about 9-11, why he invaded Iraq needlessly and murdered hunfdreds of thousands of innocent civilians, how he has fialed in Afghanistan, how he has weakened our economy, driven America into deep debt and stretched our military to the breaking point with no victory in sight.

#2308
Bush is the terrorist. he has killed far more women and children than Osama ever did. We are all ashamed of the illegal invasion of iraq who never attacked us. meanwhile, Bush allowed Osama to escape. And how could a rag-tag group of maybe 3,000 terrorists defeat the great A,erican imperialists? Well, in many ways they did. Look at how our lives have all changed and how much weaker America is than it was in 2000? Everyone knows that.

Phil, you fought in an immoral war. I question your judgment in fighting it. Almost all people think Vietnam was a horrible mistake and that America lost there. Same with iraq. You have continued to display bad judgment. Deborah is right about that. Nobody in my age rane of 18 would fight in iraq. We would not kill civilians and we have no business there. Bush duped the country into fighting that disasterous war just as the Pentagon lied about Vietnam. You should be among to first to be man enough to stand up to Bush and his war against America. I am just a kid.

Now that stupid Bush is losing to the Taliban in Afghanistan.

#2667
What we have done in iraq is as shameful as what we did in Vietnam.

#2669
. Bush has humilated America and is a danger to America. We must all be on guard against him, including the military

To everyone else The market may not have hit bottom yet but there are some good bargains out there. I have been in the market for about 20 years now and have only taken a minor hit, recently,

First off I would not be Buying gold or silver in the moment, it is at it's peek, once the market does in fact hit the bottom or starts to recover you will lose about 30% the same thing happened in the late 70's and early 80's.

Second I would recommend anything like healthcare, insurance markets and you will probably see the bond market pick up in the near future. Careful on the health care stock you purchase, Pick something of a specialty, which is backed By the government, I.E. a treatable ailment with no cure.

Oh and if you want a fairly safe option Most medical stocks are growth stocks. Think about it

The stock I would tell you to look into is really reasonable the Acronym NXTM, it is the newest way and latest technology to deliver renal dialysis.(home based)

It isn't fielded anywhere near it capity so I expect this stock to split after doubling within a year.

a dem legislative branch and a dem executive branch will be a disaster for our economy for up to 6 years.

a mixed legislative branch and a rep executive branch, gives the most hope for a solid recovery in in 2-4 years.

what is better 3 years for solid recovery or 7 years to evoke the notion of change in the spirit of change.

Now think about where the opposite has gotten us. Although I will concede when both houses and the executive office are all one party it spells trouble.

However remember when during the clinton years Congress shut the government down over the budget. It backfired on them

I wonder how many of these so-called local "experts" advised their clients to sell before the crash? If they're going to call themselves "experts" they should disclose their performance to validate their claims. I'll bet most of them lost more money for their clients than the market indexes.
