When Dick Cheney was running the government, the President and Greenspan would tell you over and over again how sound the fundamentals of the economy were. After 911 they told you to go out and spend to demonstrate your patriotism. And you did it, and you lost your ass.
Now you have someone telling you the truth --- that the situation is indeed dire, but that stocks may be a bargain for the long-term, and you're unhappy. Only way that makes sense is if a) you have no money to invest with and/or b) you're an old moe foe who doesn't have time to invest and you were a dumba*s*s and refused to sell when it was obvious that the bubble was getting ready to pop.
