Stocks hit three-month
lows over Greek debt

USA Today, by Adam Shell

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/13/2012 4:50:47 PM

NEW YORK -- Stocks fell to three-month lows Tuesday as a deal to rescue the Greek economy looks much less certain than it did a day ago. The Dow Jones industrial average closed the day down 0.5%, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq composite shed 0.4% and 0.7%, respectively. It was the lowest close for both the Dow, down 59 points to 12,756, and Nasdaq, down 20 to 2,884, since July 25. The last time the S&P 500 closed below its Tuesday number of 1,375 -- a decline of 5 points -- was Aug. 2.

Comments:
Stocks have been largely falling since election day, and they still won´t report the real reason they are falling.

"Over Greek debt" is what he says. Yeah, sure, Greek debt, that´s it. States are trying to secede over Greek debt. People are buying guns, gold and silver because of it. Massive layoffs due to Greek debt. Wow! Who knew Greek debt was so important?

Greek debt has nothing to do with falling stocks. Adam Shell is an embecile and should take a subject other than economics or markets.

Pull 100 random people off the street and I´ll bet an ounce of gold at least 90 of them won´t be able to tell you the problems going on there with any understanding beyond "they have economic problems". No way do people correlate what´s going on in Greece to what´s going on here. No way to people understand the implication of the eurozone breakup with global economic domino effects.

Greece has nothing to do with it.

AMERICAN businesses are laying people off and curtailing growth due to Obamacare costs and rising taxes. AMERICANS are buying guns and going nuts with prepping and seeking to become self-reliant and self-sufficient as much as they can. This has nothing to do with Greece; it has everything to do with a gut feeling that things here in this country are very, very wrong.

Greek debt, a Youtube video, Obama wasn´t "told" about Patraeus and his girlfriends until the day AFTER the election.... the media will do and say anything to cover Obama´s backside. They are all obvious lies but they repeat them with a straight face. The media is evil, stupid, or naive.. maybe one, maybe all, I can´t figure it out.

There is always a pay off for human behavior. We know what the pay off is for the entitlement scum who voted for Obama in droves. Free stuff!! What is the pay off for the media? They can´t all be sleepless progressive ideologues bent on the destruction and reformation of society, can they?

Stocks hit 3 month low because American debt is so much worse than Greek debt. Have you see the charts Adam?

Anyone read his picture bio? This guy writes about stocks for a living and has never owned a stock. Oh sure, that´s not weird at all.. Nor is the fact that the market has been tanking since Obama was re-elected - *totally* a coincidence and it really is about Greek debt, apparently.. /s

A couple of other so-called financial sites keep talking about the fiscal cliff ad nauseum. It´s a factor, Greek and EU debt are also factors but the main factor is our president is committed to making the USA a Marxist state. Most of the traders are catching on. I would suggest cash or high grade bonds if you need the income. I don´t know what else to do. Barack Obama is the sworn enemy of the United States. There is almost no way left to protect ourselves.

The falling stock market has more to do with
the prospect of higher taxes as well as taxes on capital gains ,dividends ,and other forms of income, which is on the horizon as a result of the election of the next President, whose policies are not favorable to these types of Capitalistic endeavors; Furthermore, certain industries, such as coal, are on a similar list, to be downsized or eliminated.

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Innovative Title Services, Inc., a real estate title services company established in 2003, faces a tax penalty that could virtually shut down the small business. According to the company´s President, Michael Day, the nearly $20,000 late fee is being assessed on taxes that were never due in the first place.

New York - In the fall of 2013, I gave a TED talk on what I learned as a progressive, on-air talking head at Fox News, where I worked for two years before leaving and joining my current home, CNN. After all, one of the most frequent questions I was asked during my time at Fox was how I did it, how I was a fox in the henhouse – or a hen in the Fox house, if you will.

London - British police said Tuesday they had intervened after North Korean embassy officials reportedly told a London hairdresser to take down a discount haircuts advert featuring leader Kim Jong-Un. Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state´s mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London. They then demanded to know his name and ordered him to remove the "disrespectful" poster from the salon window, he told the Evening Standard newspaper. The poster featured a large picture of Kim´s distinctive short-back-and-sides hairdo with the slogan: "Bad hair day? 15 percent off

Washington - It´s Friday night in Eckington, a quiet residential corner of Washington, and the back alley is crawling with feral cats -- rich pickings for seasoned cat-trapper Marty King. "Here, kitty kitty kitty kitty," said King after setting four metal traps baited with flaked shrimp and fish cat food and lined with fresh newspapers.

After remarks he made at the National Action Network conference this week and various actions on voting rights and equality he’s taken over the past several months, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry is starting to wonder if Attorney General Eric Holder is “the Obama we had been hoping for.” Even though she admitted it’s not entirely fair to “separate” Holder from President Barack Obama, that’s the question the host posed to her panel Saturday morning. “I think he may be the greatest addition to the entire Obama Administration,” Fordham University’s Christina Greer told Harris-Perry, saying the “foundational work”

   

 



 
Ukraine prepares armed response

KIEV/MOSCOW - Armed separatists took virtual control of a city in eastern Ukraine on Saturday and Kiev prepared troops to deal with what it called an "act of aggression by Russia". Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent. "The Ukrainian authorities consider the events of the day as a display of external aggression from Russia,"

Women’s specialty clothing chain Coldwater Creek filed for bankruptcy on Friday and said it will close all of its stores around the country, including 11 in Minnesota. The Sandpoint, Idaho-based company plans to time its liquidation sales to coincide with the traditionally busy Mother’s Day weekend. Coldwater Creek is the latest retailer to seek protection from creditors as consumers continue to manage their household budgets tightly and hold back on discretionary spending. Others to file for bankruptcy include discount chain Loehmann’s, trendy retailer Dots and the plus-sized Ashley Stewart Holdings. Coldwater Creek announced plans to seek strategic alternatives in October,

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
