Coal Country for Mitt Romney. Beallsville, Ohio.

The election has come and gone: On Tuesday, President Obama won a second term, and the balance of power in Congress didn't shift too much either way. Now, the many investors who were keeping a close eye on the polls know what they're getting (somewhat) in terms of the federal government for the next few years, and they can start moving their money accordingly.

24/7 Wall St. has undertaken a nonpartisan examination of 21 economic sectors, the companies leading them, and the exchange-traded funds that allow investors to buy into them, with a focus on how they would have been treated under Romney or Obama.

Here's their view of what the Obama administration will mean for each of those sectors:

God is punishing this country for turning away from Him. Did you really think He wouldn't punish us for murdering His unborn babies? I guess you atheists don't care.

What I would hope to see now is each govenor of each state in the route planned for the Keystone Pipeling to make their own agreement to allow the pipeline to continue. Also I these gov's. in states that have large fed land holdings should enact their own legislation issuing drilling state permits. Greenies and Tree Huggers all in bed with Obummhead can scream its not legal, but Obummhead doesn't let legality come into play when he wants something.

The pipeline won't bring any oil to this country. All that tar sands oil is way too thick to be made into gasoline, and will be shipped to China. It will only help the Chinese economy, not ours. Wake up you dimwits, you are being played like a fiddle by big Oil.
