Welcome to futures.io.

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.

OWS was a natural outcome to the evident inequalities and rigged financial status we find ourselves in.

consumer based economies choose their place on the scale and are at the butt end economically
producer based economies choose whom share in the benefits, such as creating a middle class

Hoover-villes can about (predecessors to OWS) as a direct result of no protections (for the masses or common citizens)

When corporate governance chanted the mantra of profits only and stop being concerned about the host country's welfare, both
in terms of internal managerial treatment of their staffs and their families, as well as their customer base, this self interest attitude became
so much more pervasive as to be poisonous, especially to the host country.

So where does the common man go?, what do they do?

If you object to the Rule of the Banks you are a Terrorist

Now the truth emerges:

The FBI was organizing against the OWS movement even before it was known to the general public, and they kept on their campaign against it, until it was dead.


The FBI’s police-state snooping and tracking of Occupy Wall Street … had begun even before most Americans knew that there was any such movement for the FBI to snoop against.

In other words, the reason why Barack Obama’s “Justice” Department refuses to prosecute even a single one of the mega-bank executives who profited so enormously from having defrauded both mortgagees and the investors in mortgage-backed securities, and who were bailed out by future U.S. taxpayers whose government purchased those remaining “toxic assets” at 100 cents on the dollar, is clear: we live in a police state, and these elite crooks control it. This is not real democracy.

Voters were given a choice in November between a President like that but whose liberal rhetoric is condemnatory of “Wall Street,” versus a professional stripper of corporations, whose rhetoric was overtly supportive of Wall Street. And voters chose the former. But this nonetheless is a police state, not an authentic democracy.
