    This must be a strange concept to the Wall Street laggards who don't appear to be worth the minimum wage they're moaning about.
    That thing flying over your head was the point I made.

    better luck next time...

    shorting stocks = keeping the market honest.

    And when you find the link proving the tobacco 'gabillions' you'll be sure to post it, right?

    Unions like many of the protesters are Anti-American and have no clue what runs the economy.

    Unions need to charged under RICO Laws for using threats and intimidation to coerce what they want from business and Governments.

    Bid business creates the money that drives people to create jobs and new small businesses that are the greatest engines for growth.

    These idiot protesters need to be going after Obama and the Liberal agenda that has created more problems than any group in our Nation's history like the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 that told banks and savings and loans to make loaned to people who could never pay their bills.

    Why does everything you don't like have to be Anti-American?
