    Yes.

    They still don't count the unemployed, and current rates are more like >15% than <10%

    don't count on it.

    The Messiah wants to raise taxes.

    Again.

    The most stupid thing in the world to do in a recession, and the Messiah can't think of anything else, except "balloon the deficit".

    The dollar is -at the moment- inversely related to equity markets. One could also go the route in stating that sovereign debt is inversely related to equity markets. Or even, sovereign debt yields are directly related to equity markets.

    Any questions?

    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.

    Hmmm, 10,000 seems to be the key level. I'd bet my left foot that by the time you are 65, the Dow will have breached the 15,000 mark (possibly several times )

    Presidents cannot screw the economy. It takes an assortment of unwise decision making to bring down such a complex system. Besides.... If Obama is really going to "destroy" the economy in the magnitude that Rush and Sean seem to believe, even the FDIC means jack ****!

    Then the recession is not Bush's fault?
