To be bearish in this artice means that you believe that the U.S. stock indexes will be lower then their bear market lows from March 2009.
To be bullish means that you are an optimist from Wall Street, and believe that the stock market will not crash or be worse then it was during the last crisis.

assignment 13 a.

Thesis: The price of gasoline has doubled since Obama took office. It is a clever way to frame it, because technically, it is true. On Obama’s Inauguration day in January 2009, the price of gasoline was about $1.80 a gallon. Today, it’s roughly twice that much.

I do not agree with his position at all because Obama’s coming into office has nothing to do with the gas prices going up. Thats a faulty analogy fallacy “comparing two things that can not be comparable.” he better get off of Obama!!!!!!

Assignment #12

 I think its retard to spend more a coin then the coin itself is actually worth. We should use a cheaper material to make the penny, and if that than just get rid of the penny. I think we should keep the nickel and make it the smaller coin.

assignment # 11

Romney= 150-2million

Gingrich=6.7million

Even though Romney “claims” he didn’t mean on how he said it. But i believe he said just how he meant it. How can he predict that he can just help the poor people. He don’t that for sure! he needs to stop making promises that he probably can not be sure of.

Assignment #9 (b.)

Newt Gingrich has defended his suggestion that poor kids should work as janitors, commenting that they have “no habits of working” nor getting paid for their endeavors “unless it’s illegal.”

Newt Gingrich is straight trippen! making children be janitors! next thing you know we are going to have babies work in sweat shops. Being a janitor is not a easy position a person. if adults can barely do it, how is he going have children working as janitors. Being a janitor requires certain skills that you have to have which knowing how to clean. If kids can’t even clean their own room in the morning, put their toys back in a treasure chest. How are they going to be able to manage cleaning a school, office or building.
