Just an admonition to the media, the ‘powers that be’ and the White House, “when you mess with the truth, you open yourself up to unintended consequences.

BTW, if you have your money in a mechanism that is so volatile and so fickle as to be instantly and significantly affected by something such as this, a prudent person would re-evaluate their position and where they have their assets....

Just sayin’

This is why I don’t invest in the market, I just don’t get it, had I been in the market, I would have expected it to sharply spike up on this news.

LOL at the fools who believed it..if there had been an explosion at the White House we wouldn’t have needed a tweet from the AP to prove it

I was watching the Fox biz channel when this was going on, and I need to go change my underwear. It dropped 100 points so fast that the talking heads didn’t even notice what was going on.

I bet CNN’s White House Correspondent sitting in the White House Press Room called Jay Carney to confirm whether or not there had been an explosion in the White House.

Huh? I would think that an explosion at the WH would be interpreted as good news for the markets. A world free of that marxist POS would be a lot more prosperous. Even Biden would be an improvement over our evil commie.

I had an order in to sell some RIG calls for 1.43 and it was sitting at 1.41 and moving my way. Within 1 second it was 1.15 and moving down. It has recovered now to 1.25, but that’s a long way from 1.40’s. This is my income money for the month. I hope I get another chance today.

Whether a senile evil commie is preferred to a non-senile evil commie is, IMHO, not clear.

"I would have expected it to sharply spike up on this news."

I don't think it took a dive over Obama supposedly being injuried. It probably took a dive because it meant Uncle Joe would be taking over.

And I bet Brian Ross was quick to get online to find out if a tea party member did it..gotta love these fake tweets though, like the one that says “Obama says I have no f*ckin clue what Im doing” If Obama did say that it would be the first time I ever agreed with him

“Whether a senile evil commie is preferred to a non-senile evil commie is, IMHO, not clear.”

The best historical example is Mao. When he first assumed power, Mao was a genocidal maniac. However as he grew older and out of the picture, his subodinates did moderate China to some degree.
