    Stocks Drop over 500 points :eek:


    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Stocks plunged Thursday in their single worst day since the 2008 financial crisis.

    The Dow tumbled 512 points -- its ninth deepest point drop ever -- as fear about the global economy spooked investors.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    We popped some good champagne, and we're grilling a steak tonight. Why not? Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

    If the job numbers are a tad better than catastrophic, we will get a little bump. Obummer, half brain Biden, Helicopter Ben and tiny Tim will be on the liberal news outlets hailing this feat stating that we have now finally turned the corner.

    But when you're in first class, you WILL get saved. ;)

    And if you couldn't afford to get onboard to begin with, you stayed dry.

    We got the bump and it lasted about 45 minutes.

    Watching Morning Blow on PSMSNBC this morning and watched the exchange between Ezra Klein and Rick Santelli. Santelli was asked a question about basic economic theory and gave a solid fact based answer. Klein exclaimed "that's not true".


    How can we expect these boobs in the WH to fix an economy when they have zero understanding of basic economics?

    The stock market was sliding going into the debt deal. Once the deal passed, we had one day of reprieve. After the details became evident and we discovered the deal was bullshit that solved nothing of the underlying issues, the slide continued and accelerated due to influence from the EU.

    Berkshire Hathaway stock is not going to save you. It's at a 52 week low. Plus, if you own B instead of A, you are not traveling first class. :eek::)

    Gold is the real deal.
