2nd Day

I'm watching the Dow, just because that's one of the things a guy who went to B-school does.

The Dow closed on November 4th at $9625.28.
The Dow closed this afternoon at $8695.79.

That's a two day drop of $929.49. How's that threat of socialism working out for you?

I wonder where it's going to be on the day HE is inaugurated? Just wondering?

Oh, I don't know how many people caught the smear campaign that Fox News launched during the last week of the election, where the Lightworker was quoted in a 2001 radio interview? Getting away from the business of redistributing income, he made another interesting observation in that interview he says that the Constitution (spelling cut and pasted from the interview):
says what the states cant do to you says what the federal govt cant do to you but it doesnt say what the federal govt or state govt mst do on your behalf and that hasnt shifted and i think one of the tragedies of the civil rights movement was that 41:01 the civil rights movement becaem so court focused
Frankly, I find that damned interesting, because one of the few enumerated rights in the whole document is the right that I rail about incessantly.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
There's one of those rights, right there. And it says the government can't infringe it.

Now, if what he thinks about civil rights is that they should be positive rights, how can he go on record as saying that he wants to regulate my rights?

I'm afraid the Obamessiah is going to try to rewrite the complete Bill of Rights to fit his vision of what he wants the country to be.
The only way to stop this is to keep a close watch on "our" congress and demand they vote our way on ALL legislation. If they don't, vote them out and install someone who will.
