No I understood. Your knowledge of currency trading is what`s lacking.

If you didn`t understand it the first time, a second attempt would be useless.

Old Ollie, Anyone can be a currency trader. And the fortunes they reap aren`t at others losses. The Euro was introduced in 1999. I bought $10,000 worth at $0.85. In 2003 when I sold my Euros they were trading at $1.35. I made 5Gs. Probably not the best description of currency trading but anyone can do it and they don`t need a special education to understand how it`s done.

Yeah I know. The Koch brothers are the new Enron. Your party should be proud.

It may be "benign," but it`s also a zero-sum game. Every penny he ever made was someone else`s loss. He has never actually created anything of value in his life.

The Koch brothers, on the other hand, actually create wealth. According to Wikipedia, "...their companies are involved in core industries such as the manufacturing, refining and distribution of petroleum, chemicals, energy, fiber, intermediates and polymers, minerals, fertilizers, pulp and paper, chemical technology equipment, ranching, finance, commodities trading, as well as other ventures and investments. The firm employs 50,000 people in the United States and another 20,000 in 59 other countries." In other words, they actually produce products and services that increase the wealth of society in general, not just enrich themselves at others` expense as Soros does.

Just listen to Tim Phillips, what a shill - "Here in America, we give you opportunity to fulfill your dreams..." You? Give to me? The phrasing of that statement clearly puts him and his organization in a position of power, demoting all others who are not sided with him and his.

"patchouly: Your country still has a monarch on it`s coins and you dare talk about `dictators` ? Get real."

Your country still has slave owners on its coins and you dare talk about `freedom`? Get real.

George Soros is a currency trader. Currency trading is benign. I`ve dabbled in it. Soros may be donating to OWS but they have no leader and your claims of protesters being paid is complete BS.

"Stupid Koch brothers! Don`t they know that the 1st Amendment doesn`t apply to conservatives?"

Their corporate charter has as many natural rights as my drivers license, none.

The Koch brother`s are living in a fantasy world where they think they are the stars of Atlas Shrugged. I would`t be surprised if they have built the secluded refuge Galt`s Gulch. They don`t care how much damage they do to America as long as they get more and more money and more and more power. And the conservative voters just fall in line going against their own interests.

Got a problem with someone? Kill them.

People keep whining about one conspiracy after another, DO SOMETHING OR SHUT UP!

When I say do something I don`t mean peacefully protest, lol.

Did you really think the Queen was anything more than a figurehead here? Plus, how is the crushing of the middle class so there are only the very rich and very poor, anything like having a Queen on our money?

As long as the dopey right wing nut jobs keep closing their eyes to the facts and making stupid excuses, this will continue to get worse until you guys are completely taken over and living in a "dictatorship" style of nation.
