Dow Jones Falls – Wall Street Blames Bernie
December 31, 2019 at 3:50 AM - Views: 104 #244634
I don’t put much faith in those Wall Street columns, but this one caught my attention.
Wall Street is blaming Bernie’s rise for the decline in the market today.

Nonsense it’s the end of the year profit taking. What BS.

I was thinking along the same line. If there’s a decline in the market, they’ll look for someone to blame. They always do.

I wonder who came up with the Bernie part of the story? I suspect MSM. Remember, they’re all in it together. This is such bullshit!!!
And then, you have to look at the total stupidity of this whole thing.
Until Chump won, I never thought there were that many stupid people in this country. As I sit here, I still ponder that very same fact.
There is no fix for stupid. NONE!!!
I'm done, It's over for now. It was nice meeting all the cool people here.

When the market fell a quick 150 points there was this headline:
Dow Jones Industrial Average Drops, As Apple, Disney Weigh; Tesla Skids More Than 4%.
That would make sense.
Then the Bernie Sanders story followed later. You’re right. It’s BS. They’re looking for any excuse to blame Bernie for something or other. But at least it’s more evidence people are taking notice to Bernie’s rise.

We welcome their hatred!

It should be obvious that the stock market is at an abnormally high point right now and that in itself will cause the inevitable correction. Also, my personal observation has been that the year before and leading up to a highly uncertain presidential election is always a good time to sell stock if it’s been elevated. (Conversely, immediately after the re-election of any president — even one you hate — is always a good time to buy IMO.)

Wait until the guillotines start rolling into town. Then the real finger pointing will begin.

You know as much as I dig the guillotine vibe – it’s a classic, sleek lines, proven efficacy – it just seems a little too… I dunno, tidy to me. I mean I understand there’s a lot of heads to chuck into a lot of baskets, and there’s cause for an orderly fashion to things…
But there’s a weird part of me that thinks we should chase ’em through the streets with whips and knives, hunt ’em like dogs after deer. Run ’em til they have to crawl first.

Meanwhile, Obama got $1.2 million for three Wall Street in the year after he left. Looks like Obama’s speaking fee is $400,000. And he was likely worth every penny to wall Street. He and Michelle are raking in the money now. And if Bernie got a free hot dog for lunch, that would be ranted about in headlines.

When the stock market goes up, Trump gets the credit (in his own humble opinion anyway). When it goes down, it is and always will be someone else’s fault – Bernie, the Fed, China, the ‘hoax/witch hunt’, etc.
They are called 'human' rights not "if politicians do not feel threatened" rights. Many politicians see national sovereignty/security as more important because they protect their power and wealth. Human rights often do just the opposite.
National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not resolved with more national sovereignty.

Just wait for Bernie to win the general election; then you’ll see a real drop in the Dow.
