I expected major meltdown all over the US after Obama's victory. But there's really nothing going on. Who cares about comments from freerepublic or lucianne goldberg. I want action. Where's the Apocalypse?!?! The mass suicides, the sacrificial offerings?
After all the hype and built-up and for what? It's all so passive.
OP I think you'll find that the way people act on the Internet and how they act in real life is quite different.
DOW plunged more than 300 index points!
They explained on CNN this morning that the guy who is the equivalent of the Fed in the EU gave a speech this morning, saying that both Germany and Greece were having a lot of financial problems. The Dow went down immediately after his speech. Beforehand, it was up. They said whenever this guy speaks, it affects the market.
The pundits on MSNBC didn't seem to know about that.
There was rioting at Old Miss last night. I have a bad feeling that this is the calm before the storm. I think at the very least we can look forward to provocative behavior and sporadic outbursts of violence in the coming months. A lot will depend on the rhetoric of the Right and how Rush, Glenn eand Fox inflame the public. It could get very ugly, we could see an increase in hate crimes.
The market was tanking, earlier -- I haven't checked it since noon.
So Obama winning did not counter negative economic news even for just a day?
The market tanking was not based on our election, it was based on the guy in the European Union's economic speech.
Obama winning = Dow went up
EU guy talking = Dow tanked.
Greece is talking austerity measures again. That always sinks things.
just heard this on cnbc : "worst post election day in stocks since 1948"
boeing just announced layoffs, more companies will announce layoffs soon i bet.
I think the majority of the wingnuts are "phoney-tough" personality types, people who talk tough but who are too afraid of confrontation to start anything.
They won't start anything on their own, but they will follow someone who's genuinely fearless and violent. Stay tuned.
Not so much on the rioting at Ole Miss
