As soon as we get our pittance, let's all hurry to Walmart for that new flat-screen tv. We need to help the economy. After all, it's not a recession. It's just a slow-down.

WOW, Is Bush saying we should use our stimulus checks to pay for gas?? OK, when my stimulus checks are depleted does that mean I can go back to paying a reasonable price for gas?

Be it you got to eat mud cakes like people in Haiti
to curb hunger pangs, then you be got to some real rough times.

Also the wheat rust ug## plague is spreading all in Africa and other areas and some say may due a total wipe out to the wheat crops.

Why dont/didnt people grow Armanthus grain, it has around 30% more protein, than wheat,rice,or corn, and its leaves have more nutrients than spinach.Also takes about half the water of corn to grow so some say.(It has a complete amino acid profile to keep one healthy unlike most other grains)

If I do get a check, it will go down the gas tank drain.$3.70 a gallon for regular. Or....I may hold it for the next oil delivery, which last time I checked was 4.50 per gallon of 'bio-diesel.
I'm sure it will be $5+ come then!!!

It's not a recession, it's just a slow-down...It's not a recession, it's just a slow-down...It's not a recession, it's just a slow-down...It's not a recession, it's just a slow-down...are you asleep now? Good, take out you credit card and shop till you are bankrupt. Then loose your house to the predatory lender. But don't forget, G.W. Bush is the greatest president ever.

It's too bad we all just can't stop for a day. Stop buying, stop working, stop being a sap of Bush and his corporate American dream. Pick a day. Stay home. Watch the clouds. Talk to your family. Read a book. Twiddle your tumbles. Anything but participate in this shame of a democracy we live in now. Show them your feed up and you're not going to take it anymore.

Its the stock markets, they even control the presidents. Stock markets got way to much sway.
Say the wrong thing it has a temper tamptrum.
Extremely rich people and others who should not have been allowed to trade daily dump their stocks
and their goes millions etc etc. Just from maybe a sentence that some well known figure says.

Stock Markets is what caused all the outsourcing and insourcing etc etc etc. Ceos are just cheerleaders for the stockholders, and the stockholders are cheerleaders for the stock market.

The stock market has turned in a mad science experiment. Like look at chinas fell 50% in six months. Or the great depression one day crash.

<<Daily trading should have never been allowed.>>

Thats pathetic that a machine with no soul has more control/sway of civilizations that its rulers.

It has become worldwide for the stock market by the stock market.

Stock Markets control is as potent as when they crash. Be it you like such a economic system such as that then don't complain when they crash or control civilizations.

Daily trading should not be allowed.And that goes for commodities as well.

Have you noticed its about representing the stock markets more than civilizations.
