Stock futures can be manipulated short term. Forex markets like the australian dollar versus USD are way, way too big for any one player to manipulate.

Yeah, no one with a shred of common sense ever predicted this type of reaction to the $700,000,000,000 bailout. Nope.

Perhaps the markets are spooked at the thought of an Obama presidency. The markets have gone further south each time Obama’s polling numbers have gone up.

Or, we could cause even bigger panic by the MSM shouting “PANIC” all over the place.

But but but, the President signed the bailout bill, after the House and Senate in a “bi-partisan” manner overwhelmingly passed it?

This is nothing short of the most massive cluster**** I have ever witnessed.

Anyone who voted for the bailout deserves to lose their next election.

Surely this can’t be happening? I mean those Senators and Representatives ignored us because they knew what was better for us. I can’t believe they would be wrong! /s

Nah, it’s cool. McCain, Obama, Lieberman, Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, etc. all came to our rescue. I’m sure the fruits of their heroic 8 a.m. labor are going to be along any minute now.....
