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.

Some “kid”, hacking out of his Mom’s basement, is about to have a very, very bad day.

“Millions made and lost in seconds.”

For sure. At Harry’s, the left side of the bar they’re celebrating, laughing and having a great time. On the right - well, they’re crying in their beer...

“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.”

BOL! A male friend my age, who is also retired was on the phone with his wife and monitoring the stock markets when this happened.

His wife is a conservative tea party member, and her response was: “If this is true, put every penny we have the stock market ETFS and buy on the dip, before they go way up!”
