Check your 401k balance and you'll see.

I will leave that to our resident economist....

but since oil is a foreign dependence for us, i guess crude coming down is not so bad.

crude coming down is great. but too fast is not good. people across the economic spectrum will slow buying until price stabilizes. raw material, finished goods...why buy now when it maybe cheaper in a month or two, right?

gasoline not so much since we buy it every day. it will ease shortage in the south. we'll see cheaper prices over time provide demand continues to drop. and it may with the economy in bad shape.

having said that, folks are saying we'll bottom out early next year. this many turn crude and stock around again. who knows. here's what so good for us...people buying necessities...

another thing about crude dropping. it'll really hurt Russia, OPEC, and ultimately, radical agendas across the world.

So do you guys agree or disagree with the 700 billion bail out bill that got passed?

wait... it passed? did i miss the 2nd attempt?

i gritting my teeth agree. i don't like the fact that us, the taxpayers, have to pay for all of this crap while those who got fat and wealthy off of it are clean and clear and sitting pretty still. but at the same time, if the gov doesn't do something like this, banks won't/can't lend, people can't borrow, money will start drying up from the standstill and the economy will be in flushed down the toilet instead of just floating in the bowl as it is now. that being said, i'm not sure about the bailout as much as the buying of risky/bad loans is better. i also hate to see the retards to put themselves in this (near)foreclosure situation get help when the rest of us less stupid and responsible people have to continue to struggle through.
