The Flower in the Shit

Market-wise, things look bad, but maybe this is just some giant ploy by 奥巴马. The majority of the wealth destroyed so far has belonged to upper-class rich folk. Their portfolios have been more or less decimated. So, if I'm looking for the silver lining, here is it:

Obama wants to crush the stock market; have it reach all time lows; issue a tax-rebate/stimulus checks to the lowest 25%; have them invest those rebates/checks in the newly depressed stock market; reap the benefits of stock price appreciation as 奥巴马 reverses course and sets up on the path to prosperity that he promised.

It would help "spread it [wealth] around" (as he said to Joe the Plumber) and it would be educational to all the people buying stocks for the first time.

I am really trying to see the bright side in all of this mess.
