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.

The biggest threat to our nation....

YouTube - ‪Immigration Gumballs‬‏

It isn't WWIII. It isn't nuclear proliferation. It isn't energy or pollution (at least not directly). It's the out of control WORLD population as well as the out of control US population.

The people in the most advantageous position to have children in this country (aka educated, well earning, etc) are having children at a rate of less than 2.1 per household.

The people in the most disadvantageous position to have children (i.e. poor, impoverished, uneducated) are having children at STAGGERING rates.

If you think our social systems are overwhelmed now, if you think our schools are headed south now, if you think our highways and infrastructure is overwhelmed now.....just imagine what it will be like in 50 years if we don't address this.

Like most issues, we'll probably ride this runaway ocean liner right into the beach before we address it. We as Americans aren't very proactive when it comes to long term problems (or solutions) that are staring us square in the face (just look at the debt).

Australia is already taking measures. EU nations are already overrun with social conflict and social benefit drains via immigration. Picture the modern Adolf Hitler emerging somewhere.....cause it's coming. The animosity and hatred that's infecting European countries is alarming and it's coming to a town near you in the US.

Our social system(s) and safety nets were debateable a decade ago. We're already on the verge of bankruptcy.....but if you think it won't get 100x worse in the coming decades if we don't do something to address this're a fool.

Congress won't touch it.....there's too many votes that could swing either we'll just keep kicking the can down the road until we have a comparable poor/lower class to that of the rest of Central/South America (and SW and SE Asia) until eventually, our country will be just as ****y as everyone elses's and an equilibrium will be reached where people stop coming here because there's no disparity. We'll be equally saddled with an overwhelming army of lower/impoverished people who drag the middle class into oblivion. And then we'll be left with the typical 3rd world model where 1M people live in poverty for every guy who owns his own house.
