CNN reporting "Stocks poised to plunge" Futures are continuing to tank. "Oh Jeez, we could lose it all at the beginning, we have to turn this
around in 20 minutes." "It could be a really rought day" "We're in for trouble." "Fasten your seatbelts." "We could test the lows today."
Futures now at -213 and tumbling as I try to get this post done. Okay, these peeps are darn near squirming at this point. Ahhhh fear breeds fear.
This thread debunked, Um, no I don't so. There is a lot going on today: marekets were closed yesterday, auto industry info today, asian markets
overnight, EU markets overnight, and the biggie - the stimulas package. Ooooo Walmart up a a whole 1%. Frak Walmart, I personally have them on my
Bloomberg & MSNBC seem visablly nervous. You can already hear yelling on the stock exchange floor at 9:04. One item I noticed, is during a spot on
'Stocks to Watch' on MSNBC there is a *blatant* masonic symbol icon - a pyramid with an eye. I couldn't believe my eyes! Also, apparently there
is a cartoon out there where someone asks Obama if he is fear mongering and he says 'no, of course not" however he is wearing a sandwich board
stating 'The End is Near.' Ha Ha Pffft not funny.
I know there is another post for this but I still don't understand why he's gotta fly all the way to Denver...isn't that in itself wasteing tax
money? Staycations are so in and work travel is down.
Finally, I have to admit it was the best decision ever to get out of rat race of high finance. I was a senior credit analyst at Universal - it made my
hair gray and gave me insomnia at the time at that was early in the decade. I miss the income but I can't imagine how difficult those types of jobs
are right now. Stuck in the middle of hearing distributors literally cry for a greater credit line and feeling the piercing stare on your back of the
CFO of a major corporation and your knowledge of the outstanding exposure. EEEK. Yeah, I'll stay home and bake cookies and take care of all the
homey stuff. Taking the advice of fellow ATSers I better learn how to grow a garden as well.
No matter what happens today, no one needs to freak out. Change is coming and we will need to learn how to deal with it. We will survive, it's just
going to be a different reality. I'm kinda hoping if things totally tank, fiat money is abolished - I won't have to pay my credit cards. :p I'm
not holding my breath on that one though.
Not to name names but those who come into these threads and state 'oh this is debunked' blah blah 'more negative comments' and not contributing to
the thread - if it annoys them so much, why do they continue to read the post let alone post to it?
One final comment, it sure seems like my own finances mirror the national situation. Two years ago I was in a great, actually awesome place
financially - now, the sky IS falling and I don't have a clue what to do about it. We made no large purchases, nothing changed, husband even got a
healthy raise. We are all microcasms of the greater whole. The financial culture needs to change and so will we. And once again I will point out we
have a huge trilateralist in the Sec of Treasury.
And here we go -183.19. Debunked?
