I just got back from a diverse outlet mall in Leesburg, VA and it was packed. The racial breakdown was probably 30% white, 30% asian, 30% hispanic and 10% black. I probably passed 3000 people and there and there were only two interracial group (both couples). One group was a white guy with a black gf and the other was an asian girl and a black girl (gays).
In the stores themselves, members of same races were only helping members of same races. I was assisted by probably 10 whites and one asian, who was clearly born here and has assimilated (lots of the asians were straight immigrants and I am including the indians in that group).
Multiculturalism is not working and if something is not done to address it there will be major conflicts in the future.
I don't let others dictate my life so I wouldn't have that issue. Also, I did flip burgers in high school. Like I said, there is nothing preventing those people from making something of themselves except their own beliefs and attitude.
Whatever you say Porky. Troll, Dun and What have taking advantage of the opportunities that were presented to them. You, Pud and others that have mental blocks about the market have instead tried to fight what's been the easiest market to make money in of all time.
You are not able to consistently be wealth or successful because you believe the scourge has 100% control of your life. UE is down to an appropriate level so stop making excuses for everything and take some responsibility. That is another trait that is evident in successful people that is completely absent from the vast majority of society.
The losers in America constantly blame others for their livelihood. What a crock of poop. Look at these idiot fast food losers that are trying to get a $15 minimum wage. As if it will really make a difference. What a bunch of idiots. They should be trying to improve their lot in life and develop a useful skill so that their labor is actually meaningful. That way they wouldn't have to be willing slaves that are entirely dependent on what some dumb politician or corporation decides.
I would say the people that are successful or have the potential to be successful on this board are myself, BloviatingBarry, TrollAlert, Chickyboy, Dunrunnin, Whatamarket and Movingavgtrader.
No offense to anyone else. My opinion doesn't matter anyway. It's what you think.
That is the one and only reason. It is actually very easy to become successful and make serious money in America. I am nearly six years removed from college now and it was very easy to predict which people would make it and which ones wouldn't.
My computer engineering friends are the most interesting. It was interesting hearing a conversation between two of them last night. One is a very hard worker with a good work ethic and the other is pretty carefree and lazy. The hard working one is about to get laid off and is in the process of applying for new jobs. For whatever reason, he has some arbitrary definition of "entry level data programmers" though and believes he has not surpassed that level despite having 4-5 years of experience. The carefree one does not have some arbitrary barrier that's preventing him from moving forward and has consequently done better, although he too has certain arbitrary mental blocks that are keeping him complacent.
Then there is a third who believes it's possible to retire early and doesn't have any barriers. He is a hard worker as well and now does real estate stuff on the side in addition to his programming job.
Two others washed out completely because they had stupid beliefs about what their job and career should or shouldn't be. One realized he didn't like programming and working for a corporation until after college and after he started in the field. He now works at Target. Another was intelligent but did not believe he was worthy. Lots of people tried to help him get a job but whenever employers called him, he wouldn't answer. For whatever reason, he wanted to do things his own way and wouldn't accept any help... as if it was bad or some poo like that.
Anyway, it's the same story here. People like Pud literally do not believe it's possible to make money in the market and it has become a self fulfilling prophecy for him. Then there are the mental cases like Market.Kibbles. Everyone ultimately gets what they're looking for.
Summer is over so make sure it goes out with a bang! It looks like a great weekend throughout the US. I'm about to head to OCMD so have a great weekend SPY board. I hope all your financial dreams come true.
Just you Veg. Liberal teachers unions have caused ineffective schools. That's correct as well.
Sold the NGs at 4.044 and 4.058 just a few seconds ago. That's about $1000 worth of trades in the last 24 hours assuming just one contract traded per post.
Well, I DID cover my NQ short but a lot of this is predictable. I do think it will turn next week though. Today is a lost cause due to the holiday.
100% wrong Veg. Adult illegals are a huge problem and cost a significant amount of taxpayer dollars.
It's .1% higher... you need to be more patient. With that said, they probably close it above 2000 for the long weekend papers.
I had a great response Veg, but apparently Yahoo blocked the first letters of the words "Dog" and "Pony".
Covered NQ at 4070.50 and bought another NG at 4.014...
I don't know how many times I've told Pud to say he's an illegal immigrant so he can get his high school diploma. Oh well. You can't convince stupid.
All paid and funded by the same source. Of course they come to the same conclusion. You are clueless.
I was watching the Simpson's marathon last night and one of the episodes has Homer becoming religious and predicting the rapture on a certain date and time. Lisa makes a comment that global warming will kill everyone within 100 years anyway.
It was yet another example of how there is literally no difference between traditional religion and scientific religions like man made climate change.
