2. I've watched this station occasionally and I am always amused

at the hawking of all types of stocks, bonds, and whatnots. I think they are all snake oil salesman, not unlike the late night teleclowns with get rich schemes, who should be indicted for fraud.

4. I know it get's pretty blatant over there
and to tell the truth, it has gotten worse.

They are like the chearleaders for capitalism....

So, why do I listen?

I have to, I am an accountant and it's the easiest way to get financial info without having to read the WSJ...

My clients look to me for advise and a fair amount of good information is deeply imbedded with pablum

14. I know it's a financial network
That's why I watch it,....

But it's the minute by minute speculative babble about what stocks to buy now that London has been attacked....

It far worse now than it was even with the attack on Spain.....

7. Kudlow closet coke queen and mad money moron Cramer

11. You would think Kudlow would have learned humility.
I mean, what with his public disgrace and all, and having to go into recovery, you would think he would give up the dysfunctional behavior and cultivate modesty. Recovery means spending a lifetime on self-knowledge, relationships, work, and how to approach all in a healthy fashion.

YOU would think that. But don't hold your breath waiting for ol' Larry to think that. :puke:

12. Indeed
one can't expect truth and rationality from a tool of the capitalists. Just endless Bullsh*t.

The funniest thing is that THEY DON'T KNOW what really makes the market go up or down!

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.

What idiots...

9. "I can't wait til the war starts. This uncertainty is killing the markets"
So said my ex in the runup to the Iraq war. He's a daytrading asshole. I told him that was disgusting & despicable.

13. Halliburton - UP
GE - UP
GM - UP

Human decency, freedom, civil rights - DOWN

Workers' quality of life - Way DOWN

Fairness, Justice, Kindness - Way, Way Down!
