A horrid day, but stocks are rallying hard into the close, the major averages shaving more than 1% off of their losses in the last 10 minutes of trade. Three minutes before the bell, the S&P 500 down only 4.3%.

    Shorts gotta buy to cover and a primary reason why outlawing shorting is never a good idea.

    You must be fracking kidding me, right? This is the market falling through,(tearing) onto new lows for the cycle. It may not happen this year. But it is more possible today than ever.
    Blinder is out there with Krugman begging for more stimulus. No fracking way! Cut spending. Across the board! Deleverage!
    NOT MORE LEVERAGE, you idiots! All this stimulus,(wasted taxpayer money we don't have/didn't have} is not the answer!

     

    God!
    If we could only find some real grown ups who aren't excessive progressive / socialist in their thinking! We need to look inward, take the pain and get through to the other side. We are America! We are Americans, why is there so little faith in us to do the right/hard thing? I say bring it on. We should have bit the bullet in 2000 and we would be welcoming the new decade way closer to the end than the beginning.
    Greenspan/Bernanke have seen to it to downgrade the American standard of living over the past 11 years! STOP IT ALREADY!
    No More Stimulus, no more bull crap and lying to the American people! Get real, it didn't work! The progressive dream has been a real nightmare. It is almost over now,just look at socialist Europe.

     

    May God watch over this wonderful little experiment in freedom we call America
