Uncivil Rights

A BLOG rife with wit, sarcasm, and the endless joy which comes from taunting the socialistic and unpatriotic liberal left. Logical thoughts and musings ONLY need reply...unless you're really, really funny. You have the Uncivil Right to be an IDIOT. "Give me LIBERTY, or give me DEATH!"

Timing is Everything

Timing is everything...except for maybe GOOD old-fashioned objective journalism. It seems every time someone wants to praise Obama for something, something else gets in the way...like reality. It reminds me of the global warming meetings. You know, when global warming alarmists get together to discuss the obliteration of mankind unless taxes are levied and the successful are punished. Then, during this meeting, there is a huge snow storm.

It must feel like that for USA Today writer, Adam Shell. His article, "President-elect Obama's actions perk up stock market" in today's edition, updated 8 hours ago as of this writing. In it he praises Obama on "...hasn't even moved into the White House yet. But Wall Street is already showering him with praise for injecting confidence into the battered psyche of investors and working quickly to hatch a plan meant to jolt the economy out of its worst funk in decades."

Simply amazing. Here's some more: "Stocks soared last week after Obama moved aggressively to fill the power vacuum until he's sworn in and demonstrated his commitment to dig the USA out of its economic rut. The Dow has rallied 17% during its current five-session win streak — its best five-session run since 1932. The rallies coincided with Obama-related news and public appearances where he introduced his economic dream team and sent a clear message that he'll do whatever it takes to repair the economy. Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at Harris Private Bank, says the so-called Obama Factor has been "a solid force behind the recent moves in the stock market." Reminder to self: NEVER USE HARRIS PRIVATE BANK!

More from Adam: "So what has Obama done to restore hope to investors? •He's made the economy priority No. 1, He's chosen a first-rate economic team, and He's moved quickly to fix things.


Down we go again: Fourth-worst drop ever for DowBy Sara Lepro and Tim Paradis, AP Business Writers

Wall Street breaks 5-day win streak as stocks plunge; Dow down 680 in 4th-worst decline.

Wow Adam, how could you be SOOOOOO WRONGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!???

The Dow lost 679.95 points to close at about 8,149. There have only been three days in market history with bigger point losses for the Dow -- the Monday after the Sept. 11 attacks, and Sept. 29 and Oct. 15 of this year.

Let's here it for Adam Shell of USA Today! He get's the DOH! Award by Homer Simpson. I bet you feel like a bit of an idiot right about now, don't you, Adam?
