re: Obama Tells Wall Street to Worry


Because Obama knows so much more about the market than people that actually have a clue what they're doing.

Is anyone surprised the markets are falling because of the shut-down?

Not surprised. But do people really understand why stock of private companies would be so affected by the US gov't temporarily shutting down non-essential entities? I think that's where some confusion probably sets in.

Leading through negativity.

It's what agitators (community organizers) do.

I'm surprised that anyone is surprised.

This is so absolutely true. And how so many people still don't realize and understand this is mind boggling.

This is another good point. On a larger scale, this seems to be what most politicians do these days. Manufacture a crisis that you have the solution to..

I guess you don't get it. People don't lose money unless they sell before this 'crisis' is resolved. The markets aren't going to stay down indefinitely. It would only present a buying opportunity.

Sure, the VALUE of investments would drop, but only temporarily. People would not actually lose money unless they sold stocks while the market was down.

And I have my own investments, which would drop in value like anyone else's investments. But when the market drops, I don't fret. I buy more. The more it drops, the more shares I can buy at a discount. Anyone else can do the same.
