I have seen dispirited weak, torn apart , pathetic , stumbling, routed haggard looking people here on ET and elsewhere. They cannot decide if we are in recession or not. Most of them are too depressed and unhappy and do not even have the courage to accept or reject the notion that we are in recession or not. They just mumble on and on in threads blaming others , complaining , bitching, and moaning, and grieving as if life has been so unfair in our great country. Their country has done everything for them. Massive Federal rate cuts of 1.25 ( will take feds a year to hike them back) in just under 2 weeks, a strong, 161 billion dollar economic stimulus package, that combined together will inject tremendous amounts of liquidity and cash into the system. Fed are not through cutting rates yet, (once they get on it they donot stop) as seen in the past. So expect more rate cuts, and more market rallies in the future. Its about time to accept we are in a recession and move on. If not keep fearing the worst (which of course never happens) and keep staying negative adding some stupidity that can keep our temple down forever. Its your choice, live it or leave it. If you keep shredding the stocks and markets and throwing hissy fits like yesterday and today and indulging in a negative pastime of pessimism that isn't the answer. There are no silver bullets left in the chambers. Grow up and face the world, like a man, or pee in your pants like a coward.
