Folks, get used to it. The USA of the 50s, 60s & 70s is dead and will not return, no matter how optimistic we are. The American dream is dead and the our "empire" is dying just like great Roman Empire did. The gap between the rich and the poor grows greater every year. The rich get richer and the poorer have to deal with less & less. There's a sad future ahead for this once great nation. Corporate America is in love with China and India where the future of markets are infinitely greater. The only thing left in America is our resources and guess who owns them? Our time has come and gone. If we haven't destroyed the planet by 2050, the USA will be no more than a third world country. History repeats itself.
Nobody is jealous of these people "sick of hollywood" I don't know where you get that but that is far from the truth. What people are sick of is politicians being bought by people and using the words "freedom,liberty,American dream,and others" as a method to justify what it is that they are doing. The truth is that we don't live in a democracy anymore. A democracy is supposed to be for the people by the majority of people and unless your bank account has a lot of commas you are not one of them. This country is ran by the elites for the elites and until people see that we are a lost hope. Many people like to use the word "free market" but really have no knowledge of what that means. If people read Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations they will see we fall way short of that. The gap between the rich and poor continues to grow at a vast rate and people think that is ok because after all the rich work hard for it. Let me put it to you to like this....what is the best way to get ahead in this world? My opinion is an education. What is the biggest problem that plagues this country...yes that is right a decent pre college education. We rank among the last as a superpower. Isn't that an issue. There is a education gap in this country. You can't expect two people to finish a race with only one of them wearing shoes(education are the shoes).
tell old BEN to keep pumping money into the market. the only ones benefitting from it are the wealthy example buffet when bank of america stocks were going threw the bottom he bought 5 million at 3 something not sure next day it was up 2.00 a share not bad money for one day so who is controlling the market it sure is not the people in 401k yes most are even or at least those who stayed in but if i was you get out because there is no money or gold to cover this. its all on paper and would you play poker with someone who keeps writing IOUs.

Stocks reached their highs one hour into the session and drifted near those levels into the afternoon. However, equities were rattled by a Financial Times story suggesting Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is likely to discuss tapering at his Wednesday press conference.
