Please think as to why these attacks are taking place in France. No one owns a firearm, that is the case in almost all of Europe. Of course "assault" weapons are illegal. If you were shot/assaulted with any firearm, by definition it instantly becomes an assault weapon. The same goes for knives or anything you assault someone with. These poor souls are defenseless because they live in a country where they have no right to bear arms. In a venue of 1500 people, had just a few had a firearm, they could have done something. Instead, they get slaughtered like cattle. So, over 100 people die but they felt secure because assault weapons are illegal. Criminals and terrorists don't care! Drugs get smuggled by the boat load, do you think weapons can't get in?
The same thing happens here in the US, nut cases always go after soft targets where they know they will not encounter armed citizens. IF this were to happen here, places like NYC, Chicago, DC are soft targets because citizens can't have guns. I guarantee you terror groups wouldn't dare attack anywhere in the US where they know citizens are armed. The ironic thing is we spend $700 billion a year on "defense" but our military and weapons are anything but defensive.
We need to wake up and understand that we live in a world full of hate and violence. Terror is real and it can happen in any major city but those where citizens are unarmed are prime targets. I bet if you asked any survivors if they wished they had a gun the answer would be yes. So all you anti gun libs take note tonight, this slaughter may never have happened had an armed citizen shot back.
They simply took out all the greedy pigs who refused to take profits on a10% move in what, two and a half weeks? All those options that were way in the money were easy money for bankster criminals.
Be glad she left, you are already saving money and you don't have to listen to her #$%$ anymore! Go get a younger, thinner and dumber one:-).
But I thought US corporations are sitting on $2.5 Trillion in cash? Why would their stock go down? Oh, we forgot the $7 trillion in debt they have:-).
This market is so corrupted by endless manipulation that the data feeds are so screwed up. No one has a clue what is real. The perpetuation of this Ponzi where central banks decide what asset prices are instead of real supply and demand in a real market where real buyers and sellers meet is going to come crashing down on them. The real economy is proof, no one is going to keep buying ever more goods at ever higher prices while wages go ever lower and people work less hours. These crooks are the ones who engineered all this, global trade, outsourcing, inversions, offshore banking and now they wonder why the tens of millions they drove in to poverty so a few could become billionaires won't buy their foreign made goods anymore with money they don't have and credit they have exhausted. Welcome to the Walmart world, you can't prosper by purchasing goods you had no part in producing. Thus the need for ever more credit because no one here is working to make the things we are supposed to be consuming in mass quantities:-).
The Fed is NEVER going to hike rates, they simply can't because everything built on ZIRP instantly goes belly up. The Fed will do QE4, 100% guaranteed!
They get their feed from CNBC who gets it from the NASDAQ who gets it from the Fed:-). Make up any price you like, nothing is real.
That last dive was enough for the Fed, back to buying stocks and futures to prop the Ponzi up again. They will NEVER raise rates and NEVER allow markets to fall again, EVER!
All the sellers will suddenly turn in to raging bulls as they change their minds and buy everything in sight. That is the garbage the media tells you but we all know who the only buyer is, don't we?
Doesn't matter. What I know will happen is that Wall Street bankers will run off with all the money in the end. Up or down, it doesn't matter.
Remember the KY commercials in early 2008 on CNBC? Wall Street #$%$ with you and they ran those commercials on purpose.
Better than working or if you are working, better than actually doing your job. Facebook is much more important than work or being productive at work.
