At the risk of going off topic for this board - I think it's totally irresponsible for the government, financial community and media to not only urge people to buy stocks but to make predictions about where the DOW will be 12-18 months from now like our treasury secretary did. The second message in the link below contains a letter that expresses my feelings very well. I copied it and sent it to CNBC letting them know that I agree with it along with a comment chastising Maria for making a rally prediction yesterday.
