The Dow tumbles more than 200 points amid weak economic reports and worries about interest rates.
What's not clear from the selling is how far the market could fall.

So all of you were wrong about Obama saving the economy. That was the last knot in the rope ya'll have been clinging to.
LOL. Let's see, when Obama took over the presidency, the Dow sat at 7,949 and it now sits at 14,960(even after a 200 point tumble), yet, for some insane reason, you view that as a sign Obama didn't save the economy. Have you ever thought of having your head examined?

The bottom had just fallen out because of the housing market collapse right before Obama took office, you ninny.

Scary story: Why 2013 looks like 1987

The year was 1987. The market tipped.

Could 1987 happen again? Sure.

The 1987 crash was largely a function of an grossly overbought market and a flaw in how the markets worked.

The 2013 market, by a number of measures, is overbought, just as it was in the summer of 1987.

Just wait until the Feds turn off the printing machines.

Printing money to boost the economy only delays the inevitable.

Fact: A heckler's main objective is the suppression of the First Amendment. They cross the line between protected free speech and unacceptable conduct.
Remember the 11 students who were convicted in 2010 for heckling the Israeli Ambassador to the US?
An assistant DA during the trial said it most eloquently, "Free speech is not absolute. It does not include the right to suppress or cancel another person's right to free speech. If it did, then no one would have the right to free speech."
You described what Obama has done by using the IRS to suppress conservatives first amendment rights.

1987-at the start of Reagan's second term. You're saying Forget Reaganomics. Austerity economics did not work then and it won't work now.

And here I thought all this time Obamacare and the economy would be Obama's undoing.

And believed that would be more than enough.

Little did I know it was just going to be the icing on the cake.

That's three percent over a weeks time and based on several factors beyond Big Ben's most recent appearance on TV.

If one considers the minor bouncing around since the market eclipsed 12,000 this hiccup should surprise no one but the least knowledgeable/most foolish take your pick. The real estate news on the other hand is stunning__the market is back well before even the most savvy predicted.

There's really nothing to see here anymore but Trolles.

In case you have forgotton, it was financial greed and corruption on Wall Street that brought this country to its knees. Seems to me, all true patriots should be supporting the "Occupy Wall Street" movement.

Just like a Rethug to support Wall Streets toxic greed and arrogance.

Poor Eed, got so excited he responded to the wrong post.
There are not enough lungs & people die waiting for organs to become available.
Who are you going to kill to give lungs to this girl?
Every person on the waiting list has a doctor who wants to make sure their patient gets what they need.
So which doctor decides?
That is why they came up with a procedure.
They decided not to transplant adult lungs into small children because of the extra risk in cutting down the size of the adult lungs to fit the smaller child.
It is a sad thing when organs are not available.
Are you an organ donor. Are your kids signed up? That is the solution to this problem.
Not having a GD fit & blaming Obamacare for something that was set in 2004.
.
"real dumb"
A few points
- I made no comments about any law set up in 2004 or any other time - You lied again
- You had no comment about letting a little girl, after all it is no skin off your ass
- Apparently the doctors who would perform the transplant are confident it it being successful - but, what do doctors know?
- A perfect of what nobama care will become in all cases a board will make the decision on which patients get needed treatments
"real dumb" why do you not ever think before you post. You attempt to put words in others mouths. You continually spew half truth, flat out lies and BS? You are a hypocrite. You are a racist.

Oh, back to name calling are you. You people just can't control yourselfs.

I find it hilarious how you opted to completely ignore Bush's disasterous term in office. Can't blame you for wanting to distance yourself from the Bush administration though. Undoubtedly, it will go down as the worst presidency in history. But to infer that stocks weren't overbought under Bush is ludicrous.

At one time under Bush, the Dow was over 14,000. That, just like now, is a sure sign of stocks that have reached their peak and we are headed for a rapid price drop. That drop, however, won't come anywhere close to equalling the loss under Bushy. People will be ahead of where they were when Obama took office. That's called "recovery".

Hopefully investors learned a lesson or two from the rapid decline under Bush and have been wiser with their money as, this time around, the government won't be bailing them out. No one is going to have sympathy for greedy people who failed to protect their assets in their quest for the all mighty dollar. Even in Nevada, they tell people to gamble responsibly or chance losing your shirt.
