Skip to comments.NYSE: An American Icon "Sold to A Bunch of Foreigners"
Posted on 02/15/2011 2:32:02 PM PST by GVnana
Its official. The New York Stock Exchange has been sold to, in one CNBC anchors words, a bunch of foreigners. The iconic trading floor of the NYSE was tense this morning as CNBCs Mark Haines grilled CEO Duncan Niederauer on the just announced merger of Deutsche Börse and the NYSE, a deal resulting in the creation of the worlds largest share- and derivatives-trading platform.

The NYSE and the other US exchanges are totally corrupt. Maybe the Germans will clean things up. The Germans did a good job when they ran NASA, they do not elect Muslims to run their country, they have bought a lot of jobs to the SE United States.
I know southern working men at the BMW and Mercedes factories and they like em. TV watching Americans have only themselves to blame. They traded liberty for a TV clicker. Sad.
But when it was Japanese buying American icons, taking too much notice of it was called xenophobic and racist by the networks. I call hypocrisy.
The White House and the Supreme Court buildings are solidly constructed and represent fine workmanship. The U.S. could probably get a few hundred million dollars if they put them up for auction to the highest bidder.
So now we don’t even export “nothing” anymore !
“Sold” in the Headline, “Merged” in the body of the article. I don’t care. A major chunk of America is out the door again.
This is BS. We have to do something to get back our country from those that would part it out.
White House extremely pleased I bet. This is another huge story no?
Wait for the White House....
With you, everything goes back to TV? It’s the new Bush. What’s with that? Lots of successful, productive people actually watch TV. Even some Germans watch TV.
I think its ridiculous that this country would allow Germany to buy our New York Stock Exchange. Its another black eye for the United States- victory for Germany, not the United States.
I keep asking Frantzie when he gonna pull an Elvis and shoot his TV.
“The White House and the Supreme Court buildings are solidly constructed and represent fine workmanship. The U.S. could probably get a few hundred million dollars if they put them up for auction to the highest bidder.”
Who would be stupid enough to shell out the money for those corrupt bastards, er, sorry, bastions of liberty?
Uh, Frantzie. I’ve been to Germany and seen the “work ethic” of Germans. Don’t get me wrong — I love the German people, but in comparison to Americans, they’re just drunk most of the time. (Of course that might yet work in the American auto industry...)
It’s just one more off Obangos obummer’s check list to redistribute America’s wealth....only he determines who, when, where, and what. All for the Obangos glory.
You really desperately need to get a second track for your brain. This has absolutely nothing in any way any sane person could or would ever imagine ANYTHING at all ever to do with TV. Get over TV, you spend more time obsessing about it than any 3 people spend watching it.
Why was it even for sale? I did not hear anything about it. Who decided to sell it?
Wasn’t there a story recently about a guy in MN (upper Midwest somewhere) who shot out his TV when Sarah Palin appeared? I know THAT wouldn’t be our FRantzie.
I watch one show [somewhat] religiously any more .. Greta. But if someone wants to watch 24 hours a day, it’s his/her problem, not mine, much less is it worth obsessing about.
Everything is for sale if somebody waves enough cash. Anheuser-Busch wasn’t for sale until InBev made them an offer they’d be dumb to refuse.
It’s all part of the grand global plan, comrade............./s
People are shooting TVs all the time. Muslim Jihadists love to shoot them. I pinned Frantzie down and he admitted he still has a TV but uses it just to watch DVDs. So I challenged him to shoot it so there would be no temptation, no chance of him backsliding and watching broadcast TV shows. So far no answer.
Greta is good. Dang I missed Trump he was on last night. Notice how Greta often does interviews standing up and so does the subject.
Greta does her homework. Most of them seem to read whatever their producers write for them. She goes up to Capitol Hill and does ask tough questions of Members from both sides. I never would have believed when she switched over from CNN that by 2010 she’d be my Fox Fav.
I saw the Trump interview. Again she was superb. I hope The Donald does enter the fray. If nothing else, he would help frame the upcoming debate. Right now the more contestants, the merrier in my book. They will winnow out, but hopefully there will be some good issues raised, and we will be able to coalesce around a sound candidate would can go toe-to-toe with Obama, trounce him in a debate and at the polls in ‘12. That is not going to be an easy task, no matter how much we’d like to think it will be.
Selling out America one piece at a time so nobody notice. We let it be done. We get what we deserve.
I saw their work ethic in a US state where a Mercedes mule team were testing 2013 models back in 2010. Those kids were going over their data on lap tops until 10 pm at the hotel. If NASA did not have the Germans (dotto the Russians) - no one was going to the moon.
Getting back to the point of the NYSE - maybe the Germans will be less corrupt than the SCUM in NYC at the NYSE.
America used to have something called “capital formation” where a bunch of people would get together, start a company and hire.
This antiquated concept was killed by Sarbanes Oxley, Frank / Dodd, 0bamaCare and a general attack by the 0bama Administration on the profit motive.
Wasn’t Wall Street grand?
Ah well, no need for it in our new paradise. All hail the pigs on two feet!
Well the Germans do not have a muslim destroying their country. Wall Street and Dems in the 2006 Congress helped destroy the US financial system. The Germans will probably be an improvement. In general, they are financially far more responsible than the U.S.. Sorry but the truth hurts.
They are just adding to the communists empire of Global Economy. Soon to be known as World Order.
Where do you get off the exchange is totally corrupt. Have you ever worked on the floor or is this just an opinion?
Well, they’re all ready talking about getting rid of the dollar as the world reserve currency, so this just makes sense. Welcome to the nightmare world of Soros’s Open Society.
That comic was just like Frantzie. Pledging to not watch TV but then backsliding and ruining all the progress he made. That’s why it’s nor for real until you shoot (or otherwise execute) your TV
There’s allot more than Dems and Wall street that created the financial crisis....try the withdrawals of billions from our banking system just days before Paulson went to the senate on begging knees.
Must be you didn’t hear Merkyl’s recent comments about Muslims in their country....she’s on the boat with France and others who recently mentioned mulitculturism isn’t working.
No cable, no airwaves, satellite’s too expensive, no problem!
Saves bullets too!
You have no TV to kill
I hear you. I would take Merkel president for life here if she pushed out the islamic out of the weiss haus.
Can the Germans be any more corrupt thank Goldman Sachs, Citicorp or The JP Morgue (Chase aka Rockefeller)?
I rather like her...she’s not a Margret Thatcher but she’s getting there I think...just a different style...after all it is Germany, but she handles her people well and is not intimidated by other nations IMO.
..don't forget to add, shooting-up, smoking pot, and selling raffle tickets for afternoon oral servicing (yes that's a true story).
Also you might want to add: sabotaging the machines to guarantee weekend double time!!
The DOW “industrials” are not all so industrial, either, and most of them are based on manufacturing in foreign countries by US corporations.
I just might be more conservative than you. If I watch the Bill O’Reilly show it doesn’t have any effect on my conservative beliefs. I have a good filter. I’m not brainwashed by anything on TV. I’m on to them
No but you put money in the pockets of people who are covering for and spreading propaganda for Obama. Keep up the good work. Wait til hyperinflation kicks in. I hope you are prepared - you helped create it by supporting Obama.
I'm turning off the cable TV pretty soon anyhow. If I watch over the air TV am I supporting Obama? Do you watch broadcast TV? Do you have a TV for watching DVDs?
Do you need historical examples?
Well they seem to be a h*ll of a lot more responsible than US institutions, their leader is not a muslim and their populace is not dumb enough and brainwashed by TV enough to elect a Muslim. Hopefully they learned their lesson about electing an usurper.
Americasn traded liberty for a remote control and HD.
The NYSE is not an “icon.” The s***ty media usues this stupid icon and iconic in every article. The NYSE is a den of theives as is the NYC financial district and Greenwich CT. Maybe the Germans will do a better job.
Amen. Maybe we could get the Germans to buy the rest of Wall Street too. Buncha a fookin’ paper churners is what they are.
