So??
There are always corrections.
Point is, you talk down the economy, clearly indicating you're not participating in it.
Either that, or you don't believe what you preach.
You're on the sidelines while the Markets are cooking!!
DOW gained 7.26% in 2012. You missed it because you believed the economy would crash.
What did your CD's make?? Your money market??
Don't deny it, you only look more stupid.
DOW was up over 6% in Jan 2013 alone.
So a 10% correction in the context of a secular bull market is just a normal event.
There hasn't been a 10% correction since Summer 2011, so one is overdue. DUH
That one left the DOW at 11,383.
It's gone up nearly 3,00 points since Aug. 2011.
Your pessimism has kept you on the outside looking in on a great rally in equities.
that's why you're a loser. Your 'chicken little' routine has been proven wrong for years now.
Yet you persist with your ignorance.
I have told you before I don't have CDs (other than the ones with music on them) or a money market or a 401(k). I buy stocks. I don't sell them ever. I only buy certain ones for dividends..

You've never explained why someone as bearish as you would own stocks.

You claim Obama's destroying the economy, yet you own stocks.

Makes no sense. But it's obvious you don't believe the right wing propaganda, or you wouldn't own stocks.

Many who think like you are out of stocks.

If you truly believed what you predict, you'd sell now and buy back in at much lower prices, as you believe the market is overvalued..

By holding your dividend stocks, you've voting for Obama!!

You really don't understand any of this, do you??

Obama Team Mocks ‘Skeeters’ After Release Of White House Photo

Following the release of a photo showing President Barack Obama shooting clay targets — a response to those who have raised doubt at Obama's recent claim that he goes skeet shooting "all the time" — two members of the White House's inner circle on Saturday responded to the skeptics on Twitter.

David Plouffe, Obama's 2008 campaign manager and an outgoing White House adviser, took a swipe at the "skeet birthers." "Make our day," wrote Plouffe:

Attn skeet birthers. Make our day - let the photoshop conspiracies begin!

Well, the fact that Zimmerman is a Peruvajew does give them some problems, but his pappy was a republican magistrate and he didn't get the job in law enforcement he tried for by registering democratic rather levels the playing field...oh, hell, they really don't care who shot the black kid as long as someone gets away with it.

Propaganda and Disinformation:
How the CIA Manufactures History

By Victor Marchetti

In the eyes of posterity it will inevitably seem that, in safeguarding our freedom, we destroyed it. The vast clandestine apparatus we built up to prove our enemies' resources and intentions only served in the end to confuse our own purposes; that practice of deceiving others for the good of the state led infallibly to our deceiving ourselves; and that vast army of clandestine personnel built up to execute these purposes were soon caught up in the web of their own sick fantasies, with disastrous consequences for them and us.

-- Malcom Muggeridge, May 1966

That, in a nutshell, sums up what the CIA has accomplished over the years through its various clandestine propaganda and disinformation programs. It has unwittingly and, often, deliberately decieved itself -- and the American taxpayer. The CIA is a master at distorting history -- even creating its own version of history to suit its institutional and operational purposes. It can do this largely because of two great advantages it possesses. One is the excessively secret environment in which it operates, and the other is that it is essentially a private instrument of the presidency.

Chronologically, our past doesn't matter. What does matter is when arrogance is coupled with presumption. Liberals have an overriding obsession with being 'right', especially when it produces control.
That's true, but we forget our past at our peril. Mark my words, by the time this administration is finished we will no longer recognize our country.

Come on, Leo. "Peruvajew?" that's so tasteless it's almost beneath you. Sure, you don't hesitate to call us racist when we excoriate a President who happens to be black, but when the shoes on the other foot it's a different story isn't it, soul sister?

Zimmerman is just another young man doing his duty to keep his neighborhood safe from black predators. His national origin is of no importance just that he was a good citizen looking out for his friends and family by shooting strangers in the face in self-defense.

Looks like the NRA will have to eat its own words again, none other than Israeli Prime Minister Bebe Netanyahu backs up the President's skeet shooting story. "Whenever I'm as Camp David with the president ensuring complete support for Israel forever, we often go outside and shoot a few skeet. We don't use clay pigeons, it's true, we use Palestineans from Gaza and the West Bank. Two Secret Service agents take hold of the arms and legs and toss a Palestinean or two high into the air so the President and I can shoot them."

Oops, carolann, I almost missed the need to correct you--Peruvajew shot the strange black teen in the heart--whether from lack of skill or intent, I do not know.
