Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Wed Nov 7, 2012, 04:46 PM

Republicans are already fucking with the country. The market is way down today probably in big part

because of Boner's "not going to raise taxes comments last night".
I have a few mutual funds and I say fuck Boner and his fiscal cliff threats.
But I hope Obama addresses this issue quickly. Take this crap to the people quickly is my hope.

Let the people easily understand how republicans are fucking with the recovery!

1. We'll have to make up the difference pursuing tax evaders.

MILLIONS to be had there.

the election.

8. I saw this morning where Germany came out and said the situation is trying to drag them down too..

and that is some of the downturn. Also, the big banks are not particularly happy.

18. Percentage-wise it hurts rich people more than you or I

That's where all their wealth is.

The meme about "the rising market" is brainwashing to align your thinking with the rich.

6. No...it's in response to

Mario Draghi, head of the ECB, saying that Germany's economy is now being affected by the poor Euro economy. He made the statement before markets opened here and futures began tanking immediately.

23. Agreed. If more people would tune into CNBC a bit each day and read

some business publications they'd know what is moving the market on any given day. They'd also know that the market always performs better when a Dem is in the WH all the right wing bullshit notwithstanding. It's a smokescreen to divert attention from their never ending efforts to end all regulation.

The market has always done better when a Dem is in the WH...and no one knows that better than the big market players. All the right wing political bullshit is just a tactic to try to divert attention from their shenanigans and reduce regulation.

24. If what you say is true, then the big market players will support Obama's position on the upcoming


fiscal debate. My ass. They would rather incur losses than help the POTUS!

19. Oh, how I wish Mario Draghi ...

head of the ECB, had finished the thought by saying:

Germany's economy is now being affected by the poor Euro economy, that is why I implore the Eurozone to abandon this austerity lark and move to stimulus policies. The Eurozone economy will continue to deteriorate, or at best, remain flat, so long as the working classes are faced with less wages and greater insecurity.

9. It was probably just some freepers selling stocks

Stock markets are controlled by irrational fears more than logic especially short term.

Unless you plan on cashing out today, don't stress it. Some days stocks go up, other days they go down.

12. You hope (President) Obama addresses this issue quickly?

Have we learned nothing? ... Have we not been listening to the words coming out of President Obama's mouth?

How about DEMANDING some/every Democrat in the House and Senate introducing a fix to this issue that President Obama can address?

14. This is why we needed the house

Don't they control spending?

Republicans are a vindictive bunch so it's to be expected. Global economy not so hot either. What's today's news from Greece? Thought I saw there were more protests...

Add:
need to keep reminding people that austerity is the wrong path. Boehner wants to lead the us down the same path as Greece. Which is unnecessary and ridiculous given we have our own currency

It may be due more to the situation in Europe than the US Election.

21. sounds like an opportunity

Buy some shares on the way down, when Obama comes to an agreement here soon (or even looks like he will) it will bounce up quickly. Heck, where'd ya be if you had bought within a 1000 of the bottom of the Dow and held it for the last 4 years?

25. I'm out.

I wont bore you with specifics but studying the market is what I do. I was part of that sell off today and will be officially all cash by closing tomorrow. I am getting out until at least the middle or end of 2013. Buckle your seatbelts. Things are about to get very bumpy.
