    Yes, it does. The market goes up and down over whispers, innuendo and gossip. What a shame they have so much control over the financial health of our country. Henny Pennys for the most part.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    From the source:

    The target site for this campaign is listed as NYSE.com. As a commenter on Reddit put it: “TONIGHT: NYSE website goes down for several hours after DDoS attack by hacktivist group Anonymous. One NYSE trader had this to say: “We’ve got a website?”

    A quick glance at NYSE’s traffic stats is underwhelming to say the least. The website is ranked by Alexa as the 26,155th most visited site in the world. That puts it directly ahead of macromates.com, a site advertising a text editor for programming code. The 4 sites above it? A Russian gaming site, a men’s clothing company, a Geocities-esque online entertainment site and a Netherlands-based soccer network. Not exactly esteemed company. Quantcast, another web analytics service, estimates the monthly traffic to be somewhere between 250,000 and 350,000 visitors worldwide. Google gets that many hits in about 10 minutes.
    This whole thing is LoL.

    It had honestly never occurred to me that the NYSE would even have a website.
