Well, here goes the only leg Homer and some others on here had to stand on.

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.

Terrorists who scream a jihadist cry before opening fire on our military don't have the same rights these same soldiers would lay down their lives to protect.

Only in a parallel universe which we're living.

Not in the real world.

Gotta love it.
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."

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?

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.

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.
