"When you look around at what America has become, I implore you, dear reader, to not feel so defeated. I know. The Fed balance sheet just reached over $2 trillion (on record), unemployment is still on the rise, they are marching out the asshats one after another to announce everything is under control, and this Obamacare shit really is going to happen.
Worse for the libertarians and market enthusiasts, we get to watch the markets get perverted and skeezed on and artificially jerked off every single day. It's like fingernails on a chalkboard. No, please, no more...
Still, some of us jump in anyway and hope for the best. The traders are my heroes - especially the @StockTwits boys - and girls! - who are pretty LOL-worthy, clever, brilliant, AND entertaining. I should especially take this opportunity to thank Howard Lindzon personally, for he has advanced our efforts more than any other website, even Google. The man is a genius. (you'd think I'm winning a fucking Webby, wtf is this gay bullshit?) Anyway, if you aren't using it, you're missing out on what could be the single most useful market tool available on the Internet. I have seen many applications, mailing lists, paid lists, services, sites and tricks here in these tubes and between StockTwits and Wikinvest, you've got the picture. If you choose not to look at it yourself, I can't be held responsible for the pound of flesh that gets taken out of your ass later. I tried.
Don't despair, America. We're getting somewhere."
