    Huck is convinced someone or some persons are causing the market to crash. He says this is economic terrorism that needs to be investigated by the CIA.

    This was brought to his attention by someone he trusts that is familiar with how the market operates. This person noticed a disturbing trend in the way stocks were being bought and sold. Huck firmly believes this is the case.

    Some of us have talked about this theory before and that it could be Soros, Buffet or other Obama supporters. I was never a Huck fan but I'd give my left nut to...

    :p:p:p OBL is the center of all of this with his cheap credit plan to rule the world. Find him before 11/4 and all will be saved.
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    It is getting late in the game for an October surprise but maybe you and CW could enlighten us with your solutions.

    Some of mine would be:

    1. Reverse the 700 billion bailout
    2. Have the Feds Drop the interest rate 1%
    3. Drop interest rates on homes to 4% and require 5% down payment. Eliminate 2nd mortgages.
    4. No more damn ARM's
    5. Lower income taxes on business's
    6. Encourage saving instead of spending by these mental midgets in DC
    7. Fire Paulson & Cox

    This might infuse a great deal of cash sitting on the sidelines. The bailout is not working because it will take months to take effect.

    Yeah we're in tinfoil hat territory now, no evil force is behind the crash, people need to take responsibility.

    EDIT: Lac, you want to lower rates even more?! :eek:

    Mine would be the following:

    Bail-out nothing and no one. Let the chips fall where they will - let market forces decide.

    Prosecute everyone that broke the law. Build prisons to hold them all - in Alaska.

    Yes for those with great credit. Not those credit cards that your dog can get at 10%. If you have a FICO score below 700 tough shit on a consumer loan.

    And London, too.

    This I can get behind.

    Stop taxing interest on savings, especially cash savings.

    I already paid tax on it once, when I damn well earned it in the first place.

    That the housing bubble would burst and cause a lot of problems has been known for a long time. Both the Bush administration and McCain have tried to pass regulations for forestall it, but were blocked by Dems. However, given that Wall Street runs on adrenaline and fear, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if people like Soros are "helping" the problem out...and possibly cursing Obama for not making better use of it, given that he had to be asked to come back to Washington to do his job, and then reportedly spent the entire time sitting silent without one helpful suggestion.

    In actual dollars, President Obamaís $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. Itís no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obamaís own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    The energy market could be manipulated but I doubt the rest of the market could. The credit/ housing mess, panic and fear has caused the stock market to go down in my opinion. Many hedge funds and others had to sell the good stocks to cover their short term debt. When they can not cover; they go under. Also, many investors have automatic stop losses. So when a stock gets below a certain amount (say 20%), it triggers an automatic sell by way of electronic means.
