The recent drop in the stock market is due to insane announcements by Paulson and Bush.
Doom and gloom statements by these folk had a direct bearing on the Dow dropping 800 points.
After AIG went to shit, we should have seen this drop but didn't (I think we dropped 200 points, nothing new). We only got the huge drop after it was announced that if we don't have a bailout approved, immediately, that we could have a depression.
Well, after a bailout wasn't approved, the Dow tanked.
Before the bailout talk, no tank.
The Bush speech was one of the most irresponsible I have ever heard. It was akin to yelling "FIRE" in a crowded building (which is illegal).
The mainstream and even sidestream media seems totally oblivious to this.
Am I the only one that noticed?
edit: Btw, if you haven't watching The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (Indecision 2008) YOU ARE MISSING OUT BIG TIME!
The show is comedy gold when at the same time it is on point.
