    The sad and not so funny part being that it's necessary to keep us from the gang rapping that could have happened.

    Between The Wheels lyrics

    To live between a rock and a hard place
    In between time
    Cruising in prime time
    Soaking up the cathode rays

    To live between the wars in our time
    Living in real time
    Holding the good time
    Holding on to yesterdays

    [Chorus]You know how that rabbit feels
    Going under your speeding wheels
    Bright images flashing by
    Like windshields towards a fly
    Frozen in the fatal climb
    But the wheels of time
    Just pass you by
    Wheels can take you around
    Wheels can cut you down
    We can go from boom to bust
    From dreams to a bowl of dust
    We can fall from rockets' red glare
    Down to "Brother can you spare..."
    Another war
    Another wasteland
    And another lost generation

    It slips between your hands like water
    This living in real time
    A dizzying lifetime
    Reeling by on celluloid

    Struck between the eyes
    By the big-time world
    Walking uneasy streets
    Hiding beneath the sheets
    Got to try and fill the void

    [Chorus]

    Well, do you like the prospects of a strong dollar or not
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Quit complaining and sell short, or invest in bonds, or invest in currency.

    No I have a money market and thats it. When the capitalist of this country bring back the economy I will see what I want to do. Right now the market and money is not dependable with Obama doing nothing.

    U.S. payrolls unexpectedly fell in January, but the unemployment rate surprisingly dropped to a five-month low
    Are people really celebrating this? We lost jobs, but the unemployment rate went down... This isn't a good thing, it doesn't show growth at all. It shows that massive amounts of people no longer qualify for unemployment benefits but are still unemployed.

    This country is going to get real exciting when Obama breaks out the Kool-aid.

    No comment on the rise of the dollar? You are going to have to put up a little more effort or think with objectivity. Otherwise you will only come up short.

    If you are not a swing/day trader.... Why not be long? (unless of course if you are quite old )

    lol, I was under the impression that the rise of the dollar had to do with the failure of other currencies. If we are printing money to solve our problems, and still seeing the value of the dollar rise, there are most likely other factors involved
