As for Apopcalypse. I strongly believed offshore $$ drove lines up/down. yes, I obvviously got suckered into all that + money but.......I am to blame for not understanding ALL the diverse voters feeelings toward Romney I overlooked the "favorite" status. I undervalued BHO's effective campaign tactics of deciet, fake "War on Women" and repeatedly, impuning MR's fine very successful  reputation Overlooked them all, guess I was smart enough to see through the lies myself

Furthermore, I didn't realize how effective his message was to the easily misguided, uneducated masses who  were obviously "stupid and lazy" AND whom probably still thought the economy was BUSH's fault. Yes, I fully underestimated how voters didn't look at his extremely poor job performance and still VOTED for him I gave them way too much credit thru my own eyes that they "would" see what EVERYBODY in the whole world sees. Benghazi, Fast & Furious, Massive debt, class warfare warrior

Like the day Moses went up to Sinai and returned to see all the heathen engaging in all their glorious debauchery(  CO, WA, and MINN) God sentenced that generation to languish for 40 years till they found that green fruitful patch of Earth, let us only hope it doesn't take half that long to return it's once great moral Foundings  PRINCIPLES and bearings. If this is some new so called "real america" it's definitely NOT what I have ever experienced in my some 4 decades

Sorry guys for the religious diatribe but....this is eerily reminiscent of Charlton Heston's scene from 12 Commandments


 I pray last nights election results DOES NOT pour fuel similarily like Rome's eventual demise

Btw, did anybody catch BHO's words in his speech last night when he said we will all "succeed" or "fail" together as a nation...hmmmmmm.... I can only take a man for his words..

The Dow on November 7, 2012: 12,932.73

Intellect and reason is apparently not your strongsuit.

The stock buyers at the Fed were up so late celebrating Obama's victory, they were late for work so the stock market didn't get its normal support from massive Fed buying.

DJ, since you are  so good at questioning CANADA MBA creds, as Mr Cova's political moderator, I would be very enlightened to hear your sentiments about last night's election results  AND your opinion of what this will/could do to America's future, short and long term

Crusher, like his mentor Obama, djbrow has nothing to bring to the table other than his condescending behavior but I exposed this fraud for what he is, an intellectually challenged loser, so it's all good.

You haven't exposed anything. You made an errant comment about the stock market on certain dates and DJ called you out on it. He provided dates and numbers which you have yet to refute using a credible source. You also claim to have an MBA which makes your mistake seem even worse since it looks like you made your comment without any research at all.

  claiming victory as a way to avoid the topic at hand = 

but unfortunately it happens all too often.

Crusher... we share the same fears... and regarding the Rome analogy... more than 20 years ago, was telling people that America is becoming a mirror-image of Rome before it's downfall...

we continue to head down that path... we can be hopeful, but i am virtually certain no amount of hope can save this dying empire... maybe it is just inevitable that all dominant empires will eventually fall into decay, as a result of ethics and morality being tossed aside and given no value...

one could certainly right a book drawing parallels between ancient Rome during its decay, and the US right now...

i have a VERY sick feeling today... and i am coming off of my 2nd most profitable single day of betting in my entire life... i can't say i feel one ounce of joy in winning that bet...

I would expect if Hilary runs in 2016 that the Black turnout won't be anywhere near as high.


Hold on to your crystal ball

Blacks have voted for a lot of white presidents

Do you live in America or are you from Slovakia ?

what do you know about American history ?

No garbage, I think I was pretty clear on that in post #4 about Blacks voting for Democrats in the past. My point was how many more blacks came out and voted in 2008 and then again here in 2012 than in the previous elections purely based on the race of one of the candidates.

Do you know the numbers between the 2004 election and 2008 election as far as how many Blacks voted?

2 million more African Americans and 2 Million more Hispanics voted in the 2008 election than they did just 4 years earlier. So now this 94% of the Black vote seems more relevant doesn't it?

1.) Yes I am from the U.S.

2.) I know a great deal about American History

I have 2 questions for you.

1.) Are you from the United States or La La Land?

2.) Do you realize it is 2012?

While I do believe that Obama was the better choice in this recent election, you can't deny the fact that people who never voted before registered and voted purely based on race.

So you think it was just a coincidence that 2 million more blacks(not to mention the other millions of minorities) decided to vote in 2008 than 4 years prior? You think they came out and voted for him because of his promise of change?

I realize that he is 1/2 and 1/2, but if he was 100% white, do you really think that there would have been that large of a growth in Minority vote from the previous election?


What does anyone's screen name have to do where they are from?

Neither what you think nor what I think matter because you are entitled to your opinion  so am I .

it's about the facts

what you are saying does not add up
because black people voted for Obama does not mean they are racists. Black people have voted for only white presidents in the past. Clinton, Kerry, Gore, Dukakis, Mondale, and Carter are not black

Obama inherited a friggin mess and it's going to take more than 4 years to fix. Hillary would have gotten the same kind of support from the black community

why should Black people vote for a guy whose religion believe that being black is a curse ?
