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.

In Canada, it may be better to let yourself be killed than to shoot back.

Sounds just like this guy from Rory's extract and the rest of the dang...........DEMOCRATS!


Rory extract
"What these people need," says Andre Simons, "are alternatives to violence. They are often unable or unwilling to articulate to themselves that there are alternatives to violence.

But they are WRONG.

"Articulate to themselves"?

Excuse me, if you follow that Democrat philosophy, you will be..........DEAD RIGHT!

The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

The Democrats need to WAKE UP and QUIT WHINING and.............QUIT DREAMING!

Like most people who do not support the right to keep and bear arms.


Ah.... the right to bear arms...

You mean the English right to wear SHORT SLEEVED SHIRTS!

Very funny.

But the UK has NO WRITTEN CONTSTITUTION.

So the English have NO RIGHTS WHATSOEVER that cannot be taken away in the morning by the government.

That's NOT FUNNY!


Quoting 
Rights which would disappear if human rights legislation were abandoned are:
•The right to life – protects your life, by law. The state is required to investigate suspicious deaths and deaths in custody.
•The prohibition of torture and inhuman treatment – you should never be tortured or treated in an inhuman or degrading way, no matter what the situation.
•Protection against slavery and forced labour – you should not be treated like a slave or subjected to forced labour.
•The right to liberty and freedom – you have the right to be free and the state can only imprison you with very good reason – for example, if you are convicted of a crime.
•The right to a fair trial and no punishment without law – you are innocent until proven guilty. If accused of a crime, you have the right to hear the evidence against you, in a court of law.
•Respect for privacy and family life and the right to marry – protects against unnecessary surveillance or intrusion into your life. You have the right to marry and raise a family.
•Freedom of thought, religion and belief – you can believe what you like and practise your religion or beliefs.
•Free speech and peaceful protest – you have a right to speak freely and join with others peacefully, to express your views.
•No discrimination – everyone’s rights are equal. You should not be treated unfairly – because, for example, of your gender, race, sexuality, religion or age.
•Protection of property, the right to an education and the right to free elections – protects against state interference with your possessions; means that no child can be denied an education and that elections must be free and fair

ALL of these rights would be wiped from the statute books

https://orderoftruth.wordpress.com/2013/03/09/uk-the-government-want-to-take-awa...think-it-is-a-good-idea/

America has a WRITTEN CONSTITUTION to protect individual rights that the government CANNOT TAKE AWAY.

England needs the same thing, including the RESET BUTTON for all Constitutional rights.....the right to keep and bear arms.

And that does NOT mean SHORT SLEEVED SHIRTS!

Grodon

I don't want to either hijack the thread for political purposes or go off-topic but, forgive me, that statement is laughable.

Just look at what's happened to the 4th amendment and the illegal spying that has been going on and has come to light only since 2013. Not only in the US but globally. And the UK is even worse.

You are pretty naive if you really believe that.

The government and corporations routinely all but wipe their asses with the constitution. The history of this country is full of examples of the constitution being trampled. All it takes is willing politicians and judges, happens all the time especially these days.

All it takes is a little fear mongering to have most people in this country willingly give up their constitutional rights, the politicians, judges and the corporations and elite that fund them know it and do it.

We have a worldwide audience here, I'm curious what the rest of the world thinks about the craziness and normality of mass shootings in America.

(Rory's highlight) Its in the less moderated section but stlll @Big Mike 's original post.

The thread had a sad but educational purpose however now it is disintegrating.

Sigh.. I vaguely thought ignoring him might work but it never works.. I would not bother @xplorer

Grodon has has only ever posted in this thread (on FIO) but he is part of the furniture at BullBear Talk (from a 2 second Google). He seems to be bravely striking out for new territory in seek of fresh endorphin hits.

Nothing intelligible regarding actual trading, maybe a smokescreen for his real purpose.

Fair enough Rory. I will give my 2c as European on the topic.

From my standpoint the US have a history both proud and tragic. The majority of Americans seem to be proud of the traditional right to bear arms. As an outsider I am in no position to criticize them for that. And if I lived in a country where virtually everyone (there are exceptions) can own a gun, hell I would probably get one myself.

All I know is, if you look at the statistics, certainly the US is not on top of the gun-related deaths by country. But it's certainly not in good company. In terms of countries by firearm-related death rate (I'm looking at homicides per 100,000 people), before the US we have 13 Central/South American countries, Philippines, Jamaica and South Africa.
This makes the US the top country in the developed world with gun-related homicides. Not a record I would be too proud of.

Quoting 
“An active shooter has just been reported in building #26 at Naval Medical Center San Diego,” Tuesday morning’s Facebook post reads. “All occupants are advised to run, hide or fight.

?Run, hide or fight? active shooter reported at San Diego?s Naval Medical Center | WTVR.com

Run, hide or.........FIGHT?

Must be a Republican in charge.

If the Democrats were in charge, the troops would be advised to "run, hide, or...............COWER!

But at least we are...............MAKING PROGRESS!
