I stated the IQ in passing as a jest of disrespect towards you,



You don't say? I never would have guessed.



you are the one who became obsessed with proving you know of people who have historically tested high, and that you yourself are smarter then everyone else because in 1st grade, and another time you got a high score on a test. Post a pic of your sticker or I dont believe you.


Do you even read my posts, or just look at the words and slam on the keyboard a couple times? Historical family huh? For what, stupidity? You have yet to fully understand a single one of my posts, and then you manage to use your ignorance of my message against me somehow. Or at least you try to, lol. I haven't seen a single supporter of yours in this entire thread. I wonder why that is? Must we all be racists, or is it that everyone realizes you're "one of those guys"? And when I say that, I don't mean to infer race, but I mean those brainless, dense, simpleminded idiots who will argue false or inaccurate facts, twist every word you say out of proportion, and even when things are explained to them to the fullest and in the simplest possible way (maybe even if the situation requires, as it usually does, provide multiple verifiable facts), they still just don't seem to get it. It's almost like you people have to be trolls.


Maybe you work with lumber, a welder, construction, you own a BBQ store, you own a gun store, you are a professional gun, you own a pet shop, you drive a truck, you are a professional american, you own a gas station, you are border patrol, you own a hunting ranch, you own a demolition derby, you are a nascar vender, you own a trailer park, you work for the NSA, you make software,


I trade in the stock market. Stocks, stock options, ETFs, and futures. I have a fairly sizable account for my age (for any age actually), and if Afrezza(MannKind) gets approved by the FDA on the 15th of July, which I can't really see a reason why it wouldn't, beings it was essentially unanimously approved by the FDA advisory panel, and the FDA almost always goes along with what they say, then I will be a very happy man, but I'll have to buy my friend a Rolex for the tip, lol.





I dont have a real job, I dont have to work at all as I come from a very historical family. I do have a lot of investments and partly own some businesses however. My interests include music (I am a composer), writing poetry and longer works, philosophy, the arts in general; film, photography, painting, and psychology, politics.


Even if I did believe you, you're essentially telling me you got handed everything on a silver platter and didn't work for any of what you claim to have. I don't give a sh!t what your "interests include" either. Let's hear some of that music mr "composer". Let's see some of your films, photography, paintings, etc. Because I just happen to do a little of those myself.

Yes I read your posts, you were missing the entire point of what occurred these past following days with this story. You can have your opinion. Everyone can have an opinion and it can be anything, everyone can have a problem with everyone who acted the way they did in the wake of the news, but my side of the argument is that the right thing occurred following the news, and it appeared you were on the other side.

You havent seen a single supporter of me in this thread, yes that is because this thread was started by a racist, and everyone who is taking the side of the argument, that what occurred, the reaction by the greater society, to the release of the conversations, was the wrong reaction, is a racist. You just committed a logical fallacy (yes it can be an interesting discussion on objective morality or objective society values, or if all values and morals are democratic in terms of social interaction...of course objective truths of nature are not democratic in the sense of, if 51% of the living people think the earth is flat, the earth is flat) thinking just because in this small sample size of thread a few bad apples have congregated to become the bunch, means its a reflection of truth of the world or society or humanity as a whole, being a bunch of rotten apples as well.

Nice.

It doesnt matter if I worked or not...im white, I deserve it, my ancestors have innovated and made great contributions to society. How much does your stock trading benefit society, could you not be replaced by a machine?

I cant imagine anything you creating being worthy of existing, and I couldnt imagine you being worthy of experiencing a work of mine.

You are most definitely not white, sir. How much does stock trading benefit society? Is that a real question, or are you just f**king with me? First of all, what do you think would happen to the world economy if the NYSE just up and vanished? Secondly, when you invest in stocks, you invest in the company (or you can also invest in other things like ETFs, with are just a bunch of similar companies bundled up into something that you can buy or sell, also stock options and futures etc which I wont get into right now), and then that company can use that money to further or better themselves or their products, in return you own a part of the company, and if they use your money wisely and do in fact better themselves or their products, the stock price will likely go up and you make money.

I mentioned MannKind earlier, one of the companies I own shares in (10,000 shares right now, but as it gets closer to July 15th it might be closer to 20-30,000), their company has one product "Afrezza", but like I said, it has yet to be approved by the FDA (although, it very likely will). Afrezza is an insulin inhaler for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. People who have diabetes now have to inject themselves with insulin every day with a syringe. I'd imagine that must suck, but also there are people who can't inject themselves for various reasons. Afrezza will help all of those people live better and hopefully happier lives.

That's, in part, why the stock market is so important. And to answer your question, yes, they can replace me with a machine, giant banks and corporations already have and they collect huge amounts of data and make millions of transactions every second, but that's not going to help me, or the average trader any. At least, until the machines come down in price,....by a lot.

You know, I really thought after several of us pointed out that the this was a PRIVATE conversation made public that more people would see the real problem here isn't that a racist was outed, but was that the NBA, and media (govt controlled) actually succeeded in getting the man punished for it. It doesn't matter what was said, it was privileged and likely illegal for her to have recorded him in the first place without his knowledge. So we condone criminal behavior because we don't like the man. We condone punishing a man for having thoughts we don't agree with. Are some of you that incapable of seeing why this isn't a good thing? The wrong precedent was set, forget about WHAT he said, think about HOW this was done.

ATS has turned into a haven for so many politically correct brainwashed socialist finger pointers that it's barely worth visiting at times and also explains why there has been such an exodus of people I actually liked hearing from. Instead I get to hear the mindless dribble from the likes of "Imafungi" who doesn't even realize how ridiculous and short sighted he sounds.

We can do better. But go ahead and miss the point yet again.

yes it is wrong these tapes were released if illegal
but the fact remains these were despicable comments by someone who had the mentality of a plantation owner, which many of you seem to have no issue with

any of you calling barkleys statement racist are either really ignorant, or just pushing some sort of agenda. his point was, the league is mostly black i don't get what the # is racist about that

agreed. this thread proves that people, regardless of race, want to be loved, admired and accepted.
the social engineers who control public sentiment, know this, and wield it like a weapon, appealing to these most basic of instincts to whatever ends they view will benefit them in the future, and presumably for the exact same reasons -- that is, they also want to be loved, admired and accepted. even the animal kingdom is driven by this same set of needs - to be loved, admired and accepted.

what the real course of conversation should be is, how long are we as a people, not as separate racial groups, going to allow this manipulation of our most basic human natures, to continue? this isn't about black, white, or even racism. it's about the really obvious, but frequently overlooked needs of every thing with breath on this planet.

2000 years ago, jesus taught we were equals, not the same but equal in value. he taught that women and men were equal, that slave and owner were equals, and as a result, the need for slavery and inequality based on things like sex, race and so on, should be a thing of the past. no one has listened to him yet. here we are 2 millenia later, and it's just the same bat time, same bat channel.

I'll man up, but essentially what you're saying is you don't have any works of yours, and you're just bullsh!tting all of us.

My deviant art drawings page

I also have photo's as well if you are capable of browsing. I would have created my own page, beings this is off topic, but for some reason, my browser wouldn't let me create my own thread in the art section. Mods feel free to move this post there if you wish.

These are all old btw. All uploaded at 2008 or 09 at the lastest.

Here's a panorama of the Grand Canyon I took a while back.

and another pano of the sunset at the Grand Canyon that I think is fairly good.

This might be slightly off topic, but so is just about every other post, most of them even more racist than the comments we're supposed to be discussing. However, it is about basketball, it is about race, and it's one of the better documentaries I've ever seen, and I don't even like basketball.



i really enjoyed that video. i was more of a shaq fan but i have gained a new respect for both magic and bird. what a well done report.
