    I am hearing stories on a certain talk radio show that certain members of our government, and some outside of our government are actually holding America hostage and are causing this stock market drop and that if we do not pay this ransom, they will short our markets 5000 points or more.

    They said they are telling our government if we do not pay them, they will kill our economy.
