Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

We need to close down it, and to banks give more bailout money. This year's decline in financial sector bonuses is alarming.

Why they don't put mail in Yellow Cabs® and charge. postage by the ninth of a mile?

Benjamin Franklin's idea of a so-called "Post Office" only worked for two hundred fifty years -- let's get rid of it so we can pay for more bank bailouts, ATF gun-running and money laundering operations, wars, indefinite detention facilities, torture chambers, and remote control assassinations. Old Ben must have been some kind of Occupier, or Terrorist. The Ben Bernank is in the driver's seat now, not the Ben Franklin.

The little people use the postal mail. For us there are Courier Services. Why should we be forced to subsidize their filthy schemes? And they should also close all of the public schools. What a waste of our hard earned tax dollarz that we don't pay anyway!

To my favorite candidae Herman Cain and also to Perry, Rick, will I send postal letter telling hims, please to get rid of Postal Service. I'm STILL with Herman!

I've never understood a business model that shifts money from states whose residents pay more in Federal taxes than money they receive from the Federal government, to states that receive more from the Federal government than the taxes their residents pay to the Federal government.

I've never understood a business model that proposes to deliver the same size and weight for the same price regardless of the distance that letter must travel to reach its destination.

45 cents across town or 45 cents across the country? Really? No wonder they are broke.
