well i say if your so sure bet the ranch on it. show us proof you committed all your money to that event happening your way.. short the market, or buy options on whay you say is the only way things can play out..... then ill consider you an authority when it pays off.
Gee I don't know....What if we look out the window and see pigs flying.
In case you are having a hard time grasping this concept, the entire purpose of forums is for people to give their opinions and debate with others.
If you have a problem with that there is a simple solution, do not participate. But take your rants designed to stifle debate, and stuff them somewhere where they belong. The people, who do see value in debating the issues affecting our lives, do not need you continually attempting to stop free speech because it does not concur with your point of view.

its okay for someone to have an opinion but its not okay for them to think that only their point is the correct one... its a sign of a fool ...

i just cant understand why folks go searching for every piece of negative information they can dig up just so they can post it.. i dont see any logic in continuing to do it day after day after day ...i rarely read them but im still trying to figure out what they get out of it. then they totaly dis-regard anyone elses point and tell them they are wrong.. wrong about some thing off in the future that hasnt even happened yet mind you. debates are great but when parties dont respect the views of others and believe anything other then their view is correct it takes all the good out of reading these topics on the forums...

seems to me the investment,finance and business forum should be striving to make us all more succesful and teaching us to work around the issues and problems confronting us, not trying to depress us or convice people to give up because someone elses outlook is so bleak so they just bombard the forum with every thing negative they can find... surely there must be something positive in their lives they can bring up once in a while.

That is your opinion and you are entitled to it, what you are not entitled to do it to attack others for their opinions regardless of what you think.
Some people believe it is the optimists preaching everything is going to be OK who are the dangerous people.
There were plenty of optimists in New Orleans when the hurricane was coming. There was also a lot of people telling them to get the hell out that this time was different. The optimists who lived, ended up being rescued from their roofs.
The things I post, I do because I believe people need to take the dangers into consideration making their business decisions. These are very unsure times and millions of people are losing everything they worked their entire lives to build.
They lost everything in large part because they had been brainwashed by lying bankers, real estate agents, and stock brokers.
The lying bastards have not stopped and people need to wise up and realize that.
As I have told you before, if you do not like what I write put me on your ignore list and avoid my posts, but keep your small minded attacks to yourself or you will find yourself discussing this subject with the administrator.
