Sorry JPZ.
I am really just trying to help.
For the record, I do come to ATS to learn, as well as to "guide" as it were.

The apologies should be mine. I did not intend it to mean your effort was annoying, only that it is annoying that a member other than yourself would waste their time accusing others of his own sins, and certainly annoying to call this a "win - win".

I believe your answer was informative. It appears you and others are being trolled.

As far as being trolled, perhaps so.
I can take criticism, so don't hesitate. I live to learn, JPZ.
Good day, my daughter is p.o'd that I am spending too much time here and she has a glass of wine waiting for me.

As Pablo Picasso said upon his deathbed: "Drink to me. Drink to my health. You know I can't drink anymore." Actually, unlike Picasso, I can drink if I choose, but I would rather you do it for me. Cheers.

A must read if you want to know how pervasive the fraud is. The architects of destruction run our country.


Wow - this whole thing needs it's own thread!

Not only does it need its own thread, it needs its own conspiracy forum.
I am addressing perhaps the biggest crime of our time. It is unfolding (and has been for some time), but the level of sophistication that is required to even BEGIN to understand this crime prohibits a widespread understanding. I am talking about the fact that Wall Street and their criminal cabal can make money destroying our very way of life.
We all should have been outraged long ago....sadly.

I'm not extremely fluent in the conspiracies you speak of and want to read your provided links when I get more time. Thanks for those! In the meantime I'll assume you are referring to Mr. Byrne's past with SEC over naked short selling during his dubious tenure at Overstock and friction with his Billionaire father John Byrne of GEICO.

Perhaps the OP might strive to find a little more credible shill to spew the Doom and Gloom notwitstanding the program aired on FOX and Byrne is a known shill and whale contributor to Republican party.

Now let's see who haven't I ticked off?

Oh and here is a tasty tidbit:

Overstock.com




the man is actually busy advertising the corporation...
i don't believe he gives two hoots about Ron Paul or his future...

any association with the congessman is just to get 'Overstock'... the new 'o' associated in the publics mind
with distancing itself with the tandem Party --- RepubCrats... or else the DonkeyPhants

More predictions that wont come true. The US is not headed into another recession right now. The fact that he supports Ron Paul says enough.

There is zero evidence that the economy is getting worse, all evidence shows that it is recovering.

Agreed. In the clip in OP when the Fox clown asked if Byrne if Overstock would face dire consequences as result of impending doom the guy quickly changed his tune.

@ 3:45

FOX Anchor : "Do you think your company is going to die as a result of this?"
Byrne: "No, No, No."


I agree he seems to be posturing by endorsing Paul.

The links I posted illustrate that organized crime is alive and well on Wall Street and in "trusted" financial media circles.
You had some criticisms of Patrick Byrne. If you could direct me to something factual rather than opinion, it would be helpful. Of course, I have my opinions too, but I try to base them on credible information.
There is also a very good book, "Barbarians At The Gate, The Fall Of RJR Nabisco", by Bryan Burrough and John Helyar.
This book left me with a new understanding of how these "financial service firms" make hundreds of millions of dollars destroying the U.S.
You should read it.

Why certainly. Here are some opinions based on credible information. Granted a couple of blogs but both relate to forensic accounting and dubious SEC investigations. He's never been convicted but where there's smoke there's fire as they say. I hope this will pass muster relating to your credibility requirements.

Overstock.com and Patrick Byrne caught in another lie




The company has been caught in many lies, and frequently files misleading, incomplete, and outright false disclosures with the SEC. For the second time, the SEC has seen fit to re-open an investigation into the company’s accounting practices.

Patrick Byrne Pockets $3.1 Million from Dumping Overstock.com Shares While Trying to Stave Off Possible SEC Enforcement Action




Amidst an ongoing Securities and Exchange Commission investigation into financial reporting violations by Overstock.com (NASDAQ: OSTK), CEO Patrick Byrne's 100% controlled High Plains Investments LLC dumped 140,000 company shares and collected over $3 million in proceeds during the last several days, according to SEC filings.



Meanwhile, the company is desperately trying to stave off an enforcement action by the SEC.

The Patrick Byrne Chronicles: How He Breaks the Law




Byrne is one of the biggest fat cats in the Republican Party. He is heir to the GEICO fortune, which he uses to fund far-right causes like the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth and the "65% deception" anti-schools campaign. He is the biggest political contributor in Utah, and practically bought the governorship for Jon Huntsman.
