Surly, Ideologize this.

Bush/Paulson's deregulation of the financial sector led to the collapse of that sector - and the depression like conditions we have survived through for the past four years.

Do you want to debate this fact?

Fact 2.

Why is there a QEfinity program ongoing? Do you even know what this means?

Might want to do a little research rather than believing talking heads - Almost all TARP funds have been recovered as of August 2012. Likely the gov't will turn a profit and it won't cost "future taxpayers" anything.

Reports

But facts are always inconvenient when making ideological arguments....

Yes gotta blame someone anyone !

When you place a trade and it works is it your fault ?

When you place a trade and it does not work is it someone else"s fault ?

Maybe its the fault of the guy who placed the trade before you did ? .. or after you did ? The news ? The economy ?

The Fed ? Maybe you didn't have enough time thats a good one too.

They are all great reasons why its not your fault if it didn't work.

And when Obama loses he will get the chance to blame ..... the voters ! It will be their fault !!

What was the national debt was when Bush left office and what it is now.

What was the average unemployment rate ?

what price did you buy GM for ? What is the price now ?

The answers to these questions are numbers not excuses.

They are numbers equating to results without blame or excuse just like we have with trading.

In trading If we are wrong we face it and correct it.
That is what a leader would have been doing instead of repeatedly doubling down on a losing trade.

Hey thanks everyone for the discussion its bedtime for me now but also lots of fun to chat politics with you all. Ill be getting back to trading without political discussion for a few weeks now but have fun !! Tchau ! Thanks Big mike ! Goodnight

Romney: +5.0

IBD/TIPP 2012 Presidential Election
Daily Tracking Poll

Day 2: Oct. 10, 2012

Romney: +5.0

Romney’s lead widened to 5 points from 2 points on Tuesday, as he continues to chip away at key Obama support.
Romney’s edge among independents widened to 20 points from 18 just a day before.
Obama’s lead among women narrowed from 10 points to 8 points.
Romney also continues to make inroads among middle-class voters, moving from a 6-point lead against Obama with this group to a 10-point lead.
The current data include only polls taken after Romney’s resounding debate win over Obama on Oct. 3.

Ummm ... the end of Glass-Steagall and the Commodization Futures Modernization Act (which allowed OTC derivatives to flourish without direct oversight) both occurred during the Clinton administration. As did the push for sub-prime mortgages, according to Andrew Cuomo. Look it up.

I agree with your comments but you might want to edit out that last remark before Big Mike sees it....

Who Is Thomas Peterffy, and Why Is He Warning Us About Socialism?

Billionaire Thomas Peterffy is perhaps best known as the founder of electronic stock trading firm Interactive Brokers, but the Hungarian-born American entrepreneur also grew up in the shadow of socialism and is not excited about what he sees happening here in the U.S. On Wednesday he began airing his own, privately financed one-minute ad addressing his concerns about the U.S. election and urging viewers to vote Republican.

"I grew up in a socialist country and I have seen what that does to people," Peterffy, who is believed to be worth as much as $5 billion, says in the ad. "There is no hope, no freedom, no pride in achievement. The nation became poorer and poorer, and that's what I see happening here." ... "America's wealth comes from the efforts of people striving for success. Take away their incentive with badmouthing success and you take away the wealth that helps us take care of the needy."

Leave it to Stewart to lay out the simple blatant facts (or lack thereof), with plenty of humor.
