Nincompoops


This from the AP this afternoon:

The stock market is plunging again, diving along with investors' confidence in the economy. Confirmation that the nation is in a recession and reports of only a modest gain in holiday shopping sales have prompted many investors to resume selling after the market's five-session advance.

Jeez, Louise, even Sarah Palin could have figured out that we were in a recession. It took a government report for the idiots on Wall Street to recognize it? I swear, as soon as stocks get back up to a good level, and they will eventually, I'm taking all my money out of the markets and away from where its value can be manipulated by people with the attention span of a 3-year-old in a store full of penny candy.

No ... we need to be told the economy is lousy and that we've been spending like gerbils in heat for 20 years. we can't figure it our for ourselves. That's the sad part.

I don't need Wall Street pundits or what passes for journalists these days to tell me about the economy. Look around...people are hurting financially - people who don't have a nickel in the stock market. Anyone who is able to form at least one cogent thought should be able to figure out that this country is in economic trouble.

But we keep being told that change is coming...we'll see.
