Hear that sucking sound? That's the stock market, continuing its downward spiral toward the drain. The 400-point drop is bad news for all major worldwide economies. They're not happy. According to CNN...

"Deutsche Bank downgraded its economic forecast for China, saying that a slow-down or recession in the U.S. or European economies would be 'the single most important shock to the Chinese economy,' and could slow the nation's GDP growth to 7%."

Meanwhile, President Obama is headed to Martha's Vineyard to decompress, regroup, and hopefully return with some kind of plan to dig us out of this hole before it's too late.

Speaking of troubled politicians, Rick Perry needs medication. His campaign is off to a slam-bang start, but not in a good way. First he insults Ben Bernanke in such a baseless and egregious way that even his own supporters backed away slowly from his comments and attack.

'I hear your mom was asking about evolution,' Perry said today. 'That's a theory that is out there -- and it's got some gaps in it.' Perry then told the boy: 'In Texas, we teach both creationism and evolution. I figure you're smart enough to figure out which one is right.'"

Obviously, Perry isn't smarter than a 5th grader.

What is our children learning, indeed.
