I love this video. Hey Occupy Wall Street, grow a pair and stop whining.
This guy kicks ass.
What if social media decided the Presidential election?
Does this surprise anyone? Obama is a White Sox fan.
Something to look at for trading info.
Want to know more about trading currency?
Make sure you get your omega 3′s.
There isn’t any income inequality. It’s just bunk. Manipulation of statistics. Total BS. There is income volatility.
If you need to renew, or buy a subscription to a publication, help a kid (and a cute Ole Miss sorority) out.
Should we teach math in schools? Let’s ask Miss America candidates.
The race within a race.
Occupy Wall Street is learning remedial economics. Ha. They really want to be the 1%.
Smoke and mirrors doesn’t work. There are economic consequences to every decision.
Who does he think he is? Al Gore?
I am headed on a big drive tomorrow.
Helicoptering money isn’t the way out. We may need an intervention for the intervention. Is their Hazelden for Keynesians?
Just a point of information. None of the Tea Parties turned into mobs where thugs were arrested for drugs, rape, beatings, and public indecency. As a matter of fact, in a lot of places the streets and parks they marched in were cleaner than when the Tea Party first set foot there. Occupy Wall Street is a useless leftist movement for the most part. For the people that are truly frustrated, I empathize. But what OWS stands for won’t get you what you want. It’s tough out there. No one knows that more so than me. Try trading your own money against a bunch of computers. I write about changing the system so that it’s fairer to Main Street. Because frankly, it’s skewed to the businesses that control the distribution-and it’s Washington that writes the rules. However, I am better off educating the public, educating candidates and campaigning(and writing checks to) the candidates that will change the system rather than beating a plastic oil drum in a public park.
Besides that, I haven’t seen one proposal in any Occupy Wall Street platform that does anything to change the existing system to make it fairer to Main Street. All they want is either bigger government, or more socialism. Plain and simple. They say they aren’t against capitalism, but they certainly are against people and businesses making a profit.
