Momma’s havin’ a porch party to celebrate the Dow closing above 14,000 for the first time since the Great Recession! News reports are flat suggestin’ strong auto sales and optimism about U.S. job growth pushed it over the top! That means we’re just 155 points shy from the all-time Dow record close! Momma’s sellin’ her stocks that hit target profit marks and plans to do some local shoppin’! But watch out y’all! Uncle Fester Sequester’s tryin’ to poop on the party! Somebody tell those fools in Washington, D.C. to fix this mess or we’re gonna sequester ‘em to the out-of-office closet!
