    Hi ratty, d.d., Steve. ((((( hugs )))))

  • Ratboy

    Sunny!! baby! darlin?!

    Where the heck ya been? And did ya notice my new Spiderman jammies?? :lol:

  • Coffee Steve

    I feel hopeful again.

    I’d like to be, but most of the media has its nose so far up his rear end they and many are blind to the facts of what’s been happening. Our country is being run on Monopoly money, employment or lack of, has been in the longest stretch of non-growth in history.

    Numbers have been doctored, they change the guidelines of the released numbers to make it appear otherwise, and while they claim the housing market is growing, when you look at the numbers to back that up, it’s just not there. Foreclosures are still at a record high, banks are still failing etc.

    And lastly, the market is on a fake high because many huge corps are telling it’s stock holders to sell shares and then they themselves are buying them up, and when they find out the value of the shares are false? Hello, reality. Trust me I was doing pretty good on the market, I would have stayed in if there was any sign I was wrong.

    What the HECK???? Dont you know that the stock market is a direct result of Obamas magic touch on our finacial status and it wil stay strong until the day he is no longer president? Dont you know that the stock market is great because of all the money Obama has dumped into the economy to make it roll and without that money we would be doomed by now????

    Where did you get your book learnin buddy?? :shock: :twisted:

  • d.d.

    Thanks, Coffee. I’m not on Facebook (by choice) although friends keep after me to join.

    We met with our financial advisor Tuesday, &, he doesn’t believe the market is due for a correction soon. He’s been a f.a. over 20 years , & , did better than most advisors portfoios in 2008 by 15%. We looked at the graphs of losses. Don’t get me wrong , his clients still lost some , just not the average amount.


    HUGS BACK to our gal pal , Sunshine. I hope you’ve been at least lurking. If not, Rats will be crushed.


    The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits fell more than expected last week, suggesting some traction in the labor market recovery. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 22,000 to a seasonally adjusted 344,000, the Labor Department said on Thursday. The prior week’s claims figure was revised to show 4,000 more applications received than previously reported.

    Where did you get your book learnin buddy??

    Why at the Kentucky School for the Brainless dimwits, of course :lol:

    I’ll be serious for a moment; I know that’s hard to believe but here goes. The market is only up because it’s not their money they are risking Rats, it’s the QE non-stress effect. Now when the fed starts the process of ending the QE watch and see how quick the housing market, the job market, the bond market crashes and how quick inflation rises.

    You simply cannot run an economy on fake pretenses and fake growth and expect it to maintain itself for much longer.

  • Ratboy

    @ Coffee Steve
    I’ll be serious for a moment

    I know you have been saying it and I have been saying it but there are too many that cant or wont beleive it for whatever reason!

    I am lucky in that I have a few sheckles so I have someone watching my stuff. They are the ones telling me that as good as it looks the market is a very dangerous place because it could implode at any given time! The wrong interpitation of news or events could start a huge profit taking run on the market and if you are not on it you will lose your butt! And the recovery will not be for a long long long time!
    One more time I will repeat, the market is being used as the interest bearing accounts because rates are too low to invest elsewhere!!

  • dana

    I always wondered where this generations Bob Woodwards are? Why is every journalist in the pocket of the Liberals instead of seeking the inner truth…why doesnt a young journalist break from the pack and make a name for himself or herself by not being in the tank….Well, it took once again, Bob Woodward, to reveal the real Obama reign and its mafia-like tactics…Bob , stay with for a long time…your all we got!!!

  • usa8888

    This just in from the right wing propaganda network (Fox fake News): Fox continues to distort and warp the real news—objecting to our aid package for Syrian rebels……..

  • Ratboy

    Hey there Moncon!!!!

    Last night over 100 billion bucks was talked about that is just plain waiste and fraud that no one will do anything about like sendind dead people money! That would take care of this fantasy Island sequester all by it’s self! I say fantasy island because obama is gonna still up his spending no matter what!! and then we continue to send all this borrowed money all over the world, it is gotten to be nothing more than a very sick joke!!!!

    PS say hi to your wonderful and special daughter!!!!

  • Coffee Steve
