"Never let a serious crisis go to waste."

Supported by George W. Bush, Barack 'Hope & Change' Obama, Ben 'B52' Bernanke, Hank 'the world will end tomorrow if I leave without a blank check from Congress' Paulson (waterboy for The Squid & House of Morgan), Timothy Geithner (lackey in training) and the hungry mouths in executive board rooms on Wall Street.
Rahm is starting to sound like Milton Friedman

How about the comped bar? Surely the free liquor is still flowing.

dip buyers only have 2 hours left to get the party started.
No worries. Harry sold another 10 velvet paintings and is in the process of putting in a market order for 1 share of AAPL.
This has the feel of one of those days where we stay significantly red. There may be a dip buy toward the very end of the day, but it won't make a dent in today's losses. Tomorrow is another story entirely though. If I had to guess, I'd say we'll close around 1286.
Cmon guys! More good quotes please!

The speculators who are in control of the markets are like termites that require wood to eat and thrive on. Here the wood is the savings and the margin money used for trading the markets. The simple way to destroy the speculators is to keep your money out of their reach.
The exchanges have been reduced to gambling dens whereby the more powerful traders with deep pockets move the markets to maximize their own profits at the expense of the remaining not so powerful players. The big boys have enormous money power to move the markets in the direction which results in maximum profits for themselves. They effectively use the media to lure the other players in the market to a position where they would incur maximum loss. It is similar to rounding up maximum sheep before shutting the doors of the slaughter house.
