    AP hack hits the slot machines of Wall St.
    Wall Street collided with social media on Tuesday, when a false tweet from a trusted news organization sent the US stock market into freefall.
    The 143-point fall in the Dow Jones industrial average came after hackers sent a message from the Twitter feed of the Associated Press, saying the White House had been hit by two explosions and that Barack Obama was injured. The fake tweet, which was immediately corrected by Associated Press employees, caused a sensation on Twitter and in the stock market.

    After what happened with the Syrian AP twitter hack, I wonder what THIS will cause? I understand it's a leaked draft, but still...

    You know they're unhinged when they call the current British leadership "Thatcherite"...

    I guess you hope for a reaction by me.

    Politicians are talking a lot, so I will ignore it until deeds are following.

    What? No, not particularly.

    If our roles were reversed, you'd be reading a long, bitter, and probably sneering rant. The words "cheese eating surrender monkeys" would figure prominently.

    I'm sure there's enough opposition in Germany against giving more money to pay the debts of others or vouch for their debts because they can't stop with spending more than they have. Before they don't succeed with the second, doing the first is like pouring water into a leaking bucket instead of fixing the leak. Likewise, Germany is not willing act as a free loan loss insurance for banks or anybody else, but if others think differently, they are free to pay for that.

    Throwing insults at certain people in France will please them more than it will hurt. The French president said it for innerpolitical reasons. That includes telling it loud enough to be heard in Germany. I guess the best strategy is giving it the amount and attention and significance which it actually has.

    See, I never really "get" insult comedy, either. If Canada was calling America, well, what they normally call us, but doing so not only because we were providing generous support but because we weren't willing to give them even MORE? I'd be very tempted to spit in the face (or worse) of the first Canadian I heard saying it.

    Mexico indulges in such hypocrisy, but they're essentially a failed state at this point so it isn't like anyone takes their claims about illegal aliens' rights seriously - everyone knows they deliberately export their population North. You can't blame them for rogering us when our leadership is holding both cheeks open and begging, "Harder! Faster!".

    Quick question to anyone: should I buy some gold while it's down, or should I wait for it to go down further?

    In case there's no difference between the queen of Sheeba telling it in an internet forum and thw person behind her doing it in reality, please make a video out of it and post it here.

    I don't know enough about the situations involving the immigration of Mexicans and I guess that's also a good excuse for not reacting to your choice of words .
