    First off here, you are showing your own ignorance. Those that speculate on any of the futures markets play a zero sum game, meaning that for every dollar someone makes, someone loses a dollar. The general public that doesn't play in the futures market don't have a dime taken from them.

    Seeing you seem to think it's such an easy way of making money, I would only ask why you aren't right in there speculating? I mean we can all see with your articulate posting, that you should easily be able to out do those ignorant hillbillies, as you refer to them.

    I'll even help you out and give you the name of two or three brokers, that you can open an account with for as little as $5.000 within two weeks you can be right in there wheeling and dealing and showing them dumb hillbillies how someone like you can put them to shame.

    So well you and others believe they don't “earn” what they make, I personally believe your full of sh*t, and have no idea of what you are talking about … until you put your own money up and get in there and play with us hillbillies.


    DISCLAIMER: those that enter into the commodities markets, can and do lose money. They should do so only with disposable money as 80% of new traders are broke within the first year

    Re: Wisconsin Governor to Missing Democrats: Do Your Job

    Having been in politics, and on the short end of a number of 6 to 1 votes on controversial issues I see these politicians as cowards.

    If you have a position stand up for it and be prepared to defend it.To do otherwise is i believe is to violate the public's trust.

    Re: Wisconsin Governor to Missing Democrats: Do Your Job

    In a different thread on a different topic, one of our members Albert DiSalvo once opined that what we are seeing in society today is a war between the two political forces - the right and the left. While I rarely agree with Albert, he was spot on about this. This indeed is a war. What is happening in Wisconsin is simply a skirmish in that war. The old saying about all is fair in love and war applies here.

    Randel - you should not post such things. You are going to confuse people with reality. But thanks for doing so. These things need to be said even in an oppressive environment where public employee unions have become the new right wing whipping boy and the True Believers convenient scapegoat for all that is wrong with state and local government.

    For years, many on the right have accused progressives of envy of the rich. This thread is filled with people who express envy at others because of their own situation in life. The shoe now seems to be upon the other foot.

    And when I make the exact same argument on other topics, all I get from your side is lectures about the tyranny of the majority, unruly mob rule, and no respect for the rights of those in the minority.

    They could do their jobs - and make that happen - by voting.

    Here here, it doesn't matter they don't have enough votes they need. It's there job to vote on the bill.

    Trying to circumvent the democratic process by refusing to perform the job one is paid for and was voted in to perform is immoral in many people's way of thinking.
