    If what Boehner says scares you, listen to what Obama and Reid say.................that will frighten the hell out of you!!

    Not sure there's a safe place to hide if we don't raise the debt ceiling. Sell stocks and what? Go into TBills? Money markets instruments? Anybody wanna bet on the credit markets? Good freaking luck. And screw Lew, too.

    Gold and silver? I'm sure the keynesians will outlaw the PMs as soon as things start collapsing. Maybe we sell our stocks and buy Glocks. Lots and lots of Glocks.

    I say let it burn. Let's get this over with so we can start over. We are so screwed in this country.

    We live in Cuba now.

    I know quite a few stock brokers and put no more faith in them than any other person unless I have a long track record with them.

    But you are debating with yourself after listening to Boehner. It seems evident that you may need some assistance as this is causing you some consternation.

    I saw on Drudge this morning that only 15% of the Government is down.....that would not impact the markets....the propaganda from the Libs and Media might impact the markets, but it would be a very short impact, as very little economic impact is actually in play here....more symbolism over substance.....

    I could not even come close to saying it as well as this guy. I guess that is why I don't make the big bucks!
