The Way We Live Now: looking back with regret, and forward with dread. It's hard to know where to look, honestly. Yes, we've made mistakes. But must you all assume the consequences are over? Psht. Eh...just let it ride.

At least they've cleared up the reason for that "flash crash" we had: one bold, fearless Randian hero who put in a huge multibillion-dollar trade that crashed everything. Good for him, and his fearless bold vision. Screw the little fearful traders, if they can't deal with it. This isn't Britain; we don't do "austerity." What we do is to vaporize jobs and push everyone onto Medicaid, whether we can afford it or not.

That's bold, baby.

As bold as the Manhattan real estate market, which is TOTALLY BACK, baby, buy in now, there's no way to lose, unless you can't buy in, which you probably can't, so you lose. As bold as watching all the small suckers flee the market in fear just as the Dow has its best September in seven fucking decades, brother.

Yep, it's been 71 years since we had a fall September that boosted stocks that much. Hope you got your cut. As we all know, the market follows "momentum," meaning it will likely rise forever, starting now. So get in while it's hot. Be bold. Fear is for fiscal conservatives. America has never respect them. Just because Danny Meyer's scared of losing everything doesn't mean you have to be.
