10964 Points, Schiff on 23 Oct, Ron Paul on 24 OCT, Will Ferrel as Bush (Humor)
Some how I managed to climb and stay #1 in points and abitarePERFECT is #6?
I am surprised really at the incredible speed and size of the sell off.
My post on Dec 07 guessed 25% sell off for DOW and 40% sell off in China.
dwot replied “you think the DOW will only fall 25%?”
We were so young and naive, back in Dec 07. It seems like a long time ago?
If I had a brain I would close out all my Fool portfolio and just sit here.
I had a bad trading day. I should have done well, so should most of the Fools here. Are the Top Fools misleading you the way the media has? Look at the Top Players, look at the Top Bloggers, it seems most avid Fools should have made some money today. I hope they did anyways.
As for me, I put in an order to buy at market at open and took a good hit. Never, buy at Market at the open, it is a great opportunity for the market maker to pay down his beach house or to upgrade his yacht with your money. I will write on this later. I have a hard time discussing it with out profanity. I am rereading Trading for A Living as penance for my idiocy.
My computer keeps crashing, so I have not kept up with the markets as well as I liked this week.
But for some reason CNBC keeps putting all the BEARS on this week? Schiff, Rogers, Nouriel Roubini, Marc Faber.
I think it is HIGHLY SUSPECT, the media is showcasing these guys, now. Something is going on. I do not know what…like I said. I would not be surprised to see a “rip your face off rally”, before a continued sell off. The US media is a great source of Disinformation, the fact they are having BEAR parade week, is suspect to me.

Peter Schiff here on Squawk Box 23 OCT 08
On CNN today a Motley Fool spokesmen was on taking on Peter Schiff? I did NOT hear the video, just saw part of the clip. I am a major Ron Paul and Peter Schiff follower. Calling out Schiff is like calling out Moses as he parting the Red Sea for your escape. It is close to blasphemy.
Peter Schiff should have said “the highest points player on CAPS, thinks I am awesome and recommends my book, Crashproof”. Next time Fool, confronts Schiff, they should send me as there spokesperson. Although I might get “star struck” and ask for an autograph instead of playing CNNs “Bull vs Bear” game.
