We are now looking at ANOTHER 300 point loss, which wipes out anything gained yesterday... The market has lost roughly 2250 points in less than 5 months... Gas is 110 a barrel. Gold just BROKE 1000 an oz. The Federal government is just handing over cheap cash to mega corporations in order for them to make more money... ( Man wish I had that ability ) Bernake has no answers. Federal Reserve has used every tool it has, it did nothing, overseas banks even helped out only to have those gains wiped out today on the Bear Sterns news today... We don't own our own ports We don't build our own Military equipment Is there anything to be hopeful about our future as a country and economy?
