If your wondering,this is not to bash the american people but looking at it objectivily. Ok americans are buying stocks again in the same companies that fell 90 percent and on the brink of bankruptcy. They fire the republicans who were responsible for the recession, hire democrats,then blame democrats, and then hire the same guys over again. Americans rutinely trade in bankrupt companies, that stocks will be cancelled and are worthless. Ie general motors, lehman, bear stearns, and etc. a majority of americans think that obama started the war in iraq and bailed out aig and bear stearns. i could bring out more stuff, but it leads people to belieave americans are the greater fool. They have no sense of history or common sense. Its the reason why shorts can and always make money in the american stock market. Its not to say there are alot of smart americans,but when you have a majority of people who dont learn from history or even know history beyond what happen last week, then your prone to make it again.
