    I see everyone and their kids and grandmother and dog are on the Global Warming bandwagon. Opps,I forgot, we’ve done the Global Warming thing so now its Climate change. After all the climate has always been changing dramatically since the beginning of time. Just ask the dinosaurs. And the ice age. But what about all the stocks that have crashed and burned over the years including recent years. This must be a MARKET EMERGENCY and we should all be blocking roads and bridges as the end of the financial world is upon us. Demand that the governments do something NOW!!!
    Amazing how society is always looking for a hot button issue to jump up and down about. Well I think a MARKET EMERGENCY is one we could all jump and down about and block roads and bridges and demand governments pay attention. Just look at the chaos it causes with broken marriages and suicides and the homeless and working poor that can’t even pay rent let alone buy a home. All because of MARKET CHANGE!. And we wouldn’t even need teeny boppers to tell us how to deal with Stocks/Bonds and other investments in this MARKET EMERGENCY. Reminds me of the lemmings all running over the cliff just because the others did.
