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.

As Others Struggle, Paydays for CEOs on the Rise Again

C.E.O. pay is increasing at companies like Capital One and Goldman Sachs, which survived the economic storm with the help of all those taxpayer-financed bailouts, the New York Times reports.

More on CNBC...

Thanks: 128 given, 700 received

Everyone needs to watch the video I posted about "Debt as Money" and begin to understand how a centralized banking system works and how they create money from debt.

Over the past 100 years, we have slowly but surely been stripped of our liberties by the government who sells us doom/gloom.

There's always some catastophe to avoid, wars, depressions, etc. This is how we came to have social security (and essentially the governments branding of you), income taxes, the Patriot Act, etc, etc.

99% of Americans are economic slaves to the central bank (i.e. the Federal Reserve). The Fed doesn't answer to anyone, not even Congress. It wasn't until a recent FOIA request that we learned of the $3Trillion that the Fed has arbitrarily and unilaterally decided to loan, gift, etc. TARP was only one piece of an even larger puzzle, but TARP received most of the press.

But like always, the powers that be know that en large, Americans are dumb, uneducated and largely apathetic as long as they have cable television and a bbq grill in the back yard. They're perfectly content to slave away at hourly jobs and place their retirement into the hands of crooks and scoundrels...all the while rich bankers make disgusting amounts of money.

We sit idly by and we cannot own a home, a car, drive a car, start a fire, dig a well, add an addition to our home, sell a car, sell a home, buy a firearm, have a child, get married, start a business, etc, etc, etc without the governments knowledge and permission.

Just stop and think about those things for a minute and it'll begin to sink in just how many freedoms have been stripped away in the name of civility and social progress.

Again, it's all because of some pending disaster that the government sells us. The bank bailout was simply the people with real power, making the political puppets dance in order to ensure they continue to make millions.

Why were some banks allowed to wither and die and some were not? We were loaning $BN's to foreign governments and banks while some banks here failed? Why? Because the people with power wanted it that way.

Why do you think we're in Lybia? We publicly held them under economic sanctions, all the while, the Fed lent them $BN's under the table to finance their government, their military, etc.

I'll tell you why we're in Lybia, because Obama and his masters NEED another war to justify increasing the debt limit. That's the only way he can politically justify increasing the debt/deficit.

The sooner we end the Fed or at least make it answer to Congress, the sooner we'll begin to wake up and see that politicians, greed, etc, all play a part in our economic prosperity and failure, but at the very heart of the issue, is the Federal Reserve.
