Damn. I know that the supposed bailout and any affects that it may have on our economy may not be felt for a while. And I know that the day in stock trading isn't over yet. But as of 11:25AM this morning, the Dow dipped below 10,000. I don't even remember the last time the Dow was this low. DJIA - Google Search I don't feel it as much because I don't make a lot of money anyhow. But my partner, in this year alone, has lost more than twice what I make in a year. This is not good at all. Fuck all these conspiracy theories about ties to terrorism, pipelines to Alaska and bridges to nowhere. It's been said several times and it needs repeating... IT'S THE ECONOMY, STUPID!!! I'm sick of the pointing fingers. At this point we know that each side fucked up, Democrat and Republican, and regardless of who did it more than the other it's time to correct it all.
