I have read several threads on this Forum Daily, I have injected a bit of Humor from time to time, However, I am sick and tired of these whiny crybaby Speculator /Investor types that Post here Daily. You know who you are.
Face it ,the Recent Past of playing the "Markets for Income, is DEAD!!" Get out into the real world and Make Real Money the Old Way." EARN IT!!" " Find a need and Fill It." Stop all this crying over spilled milk, ITS OVER!! get off your ASS and away from your Desktop, and actually do something!! Just one Old Mans Opinon.
You don't know a lot about the markets do you?
Don't believe everything you hear on MSNBC - things are a little more complicated than people sitting on their "ass" and "playing" the markets. By simply being a consumer, you are part of the same hypocrisy.
Just remember for every "speculator" there is another person on the other side of the trade who is "hedging."
The reality is that people who don't understand the economy and want you to watch their news shows are really into sensationalism and finger pointing so its really easy to label something evil and get sympathy. "Speculators" are the new "terrorists" trying to eat your children.
Another reality is that we are in the aftermath of a giant credit bubble that has been inflating since the end of the second world war. Our currency is based on DEBT, a liability of the government, NOT an asset.
Continual government intervention is what caused this mess and continual intervention is what is going to make it worse.
I suggest you read some Marc Faber for some real color on what's going on.
