    They're letting the air out of a market over-inflated by 0-point-something interest rates for too long.

    Hey, the VIX is up almost 13% today. So we got that going for us, which is nice.

    (VIX = Volatility Index. Up is bad.)

    Any wife I had would probably deck any conservative contributing to the severe carnage inflicted on this country by the right. At least there's that permit to hide behind in case of such threats.

    Scoob, you're way low. Look at all the unfunded liabilities the Federal government has.

    The rich don't care about the safety net in the US because they know they can get out. The rest of us do care about a safety net so we want to get out. It's just just more evidence of how the country only gives a **** about the rich.

    Don't blame the rich. Plenty of rich - the majority per 2018 results - support paying their way and liberal policies.

    Don't blame the government. The government is just a tool that has the capability to offer tremendous value add services to improve the quality of life.


    Its conservatives that have resulted in the worst of policy while driving the public debt through the roof.

    Its conservatives that have widened the income disparity and resulted in the poor being under trained and under-represented.

    Yeah. Sure thing. That's why MOST of the last tax cut went to stock buybacks.

    Plenty is most. And most hoard their money.

    Haven't we talked at nauseam about how conservatives fool the poor into hating the rich...in order to shift the blame from themselves?

    The majority of those earning more than 100k voted D in the midterms.

    And that contributed bigly to the inflated stock prices. Not just theow interest rates, like typical conservatives want to blame so itís anyones fault but their own idiotic policies

    I don't hate the rich. Hate or like has nothing to do with it. I hate that without the Government they can't control themselves. They have forsaken every responsibility they have except the shareholder. Who they bow down to like a whore.

    Government isn't a master. Politicians are.

    And its no surprise that politicians that want to destroy public policy are totally inept at conducting it.

    The rich can control themselves as much or as little as anyone else.

    They're given stolen money and they can't productively use it. So they just buy back stock as the least bad option. Don't stop blaming conservatives for giving it to them.
