Did anyone listen to Glenn Beck today? He was painting a grim scenario and saying that you should sell all stocks you own.

As a Ct. resident i'm familiar with Mr. Beck's career in the media.

That said, trust me when i say, he's a moron.

WHO THE FOOK CARES ABOUT GLEN BECK?!

Go out and start listen to real pros like Nouriel Roubini, Peter Schiff, and Eric Janzen. Not some talking head on CNN.

Talkingehad just like so many others. I would take his financial advise anymore than having britany Spears give advise on the stock market.

There's no need to shout at me.
And Beck had Peter Schiff on his tv show today.

Sorry. I didn't me to yell at you specifically but a lot of people listen to that idiot beck drone on and on. He don't have a clue.

And yes is it good that they had schiff on the show but...........you have to go much deeper than a 2 minute spot you got on TV. you have to read up on these guys and there view on the economy and where it headed. This will make you much better informed about what is going on. Even if you don't agree with them.

Maybe it's just me but isn't this the ideal time to buy? This bailout is going to happen and when it does things will shoot up.

I listen to Beck for entertainment purposes only. When he recommended today that "we all need to pray " about the economy I knew he'd gone over the top.

Then why even bring him up then? He has no significance. especially on the business forum.
