Global markets are in turmoil as I write this.  you're very right, this morning will get very, very ugly.  The U.S. is still the world's number one consumer and weakness here has huge effects abroad.

I however don't believe that a person should completely write of the market in times like this.  Value investors spread their investments out over time and bear markets are honestly when you will get the most bang for your buck.  If you invested in quality companies with strong fundamentals from the very beginning, your companies will survive.  And honestly times like this are the worst time to change that philosophy because this is when value investors thrive.
