    Well, then get ready to urinate down one of your legs (you get to choose).

    Jesus. Maybe it's just fearmongering in light of the stimulus vote coming up. If it is just that, it's worked. Three hours away from a total collapse? Christ.

    If we could have been so lucky.

    This is fear mongering at its ugliest.

    Yeah, I'm glad Bush's lasting legacy will be 9/11 and the troops in the Middle East as opposed to that.

    The Dow is down 300 points after the stimulus bill passed. The Dow is sub-8,000 as I type.

    Wall St. wanted more details on Geitner's plan for toxic debt than was provided, if you want to believe the business press. In other words, they wanted to hear: "Poof! It's all gone! Everyone back to business!"

    I could be very wrong about this, but from what I have read so far, but the banks will have to provide some transparency which has been lacking. Maybe the market is reacting to the truth possibly being exposed.
