I gotta stop watching this shit.
Try an experiment, unplug your tv, put it in the garage, cancel the cable. Try to go without tv for six months, if you think your life was better with it resubscribe, if not just live without it. I gave up tv two years ago and now just watch it when I go to my parents, or my girlfriends parents. My girlfriend's daughter has a wonderful imagination and instead of watching tele she spends her time writing and drawing. She is going places for sure.
That's what I think many (including myself) will do from now on. She deserves a drop in ratings. And really, would you miss Cramer in his lunch time clown routine?
TV really is the waste of time brain rot that our parents told us it was.
I am boycotting CNBC as well. Firstly, it's a bunch of freaking morons ranting and raving trying to "out Cramer" Cramer.
Secondly, when one of your main anchors is too stupid to realize that this tax would put an end to CNBC and thereby her job, I really can't respect this channel.
I now listen to Bloomberg while in my care (Sirius) and that's it.
A trader tax might benefit some people on this board. It would eliminate many professional trading programs and strategies which people on this board cannot compete with anyways. Of course, it depends on whether "professionals" get exemptions and the size of the tax.
If one's profit goal is for half a point or more and longer than a few seconds then a nominal tax might be a positive.
Keep drinking that kool-aid!
exactly....there is no f ing benefit to any tax on trading! i hold medium to short term trades...but even then a transaction tax will hurt and guess what! the trickle down is if i make less i spend less= contraction....kool aid ur a RE-...Tard..

Why do so many idiots in this country like and vote for more taxes!!!! Taxes only benefit the Government!!!!!!
in cities, counties, and across the nation the new idea seems to be that taxes are good!!! this is ASSANINE!!!!!!!!!!!! and idiots are voting for them.
i am not sure what f'ing cool aid people are drinking...or wtf is in our drinking supply, but taxes are BAD people..even if the tax does not directly affect you...there is a trickle down effect!! somehow or another you will be inadvertently negatively affected!!!
Trading tax bad...pleasure tax bad city taxes are 7.8 % in some areas...estate taxes...bad...everything is taxed taxed taxed....and why do so many people..even here on this trading site say taxes are good....is this run by the government!!!!!
By killing the specialist, one might fill his niche. Less competition is better. Think of the spike fills. I admit that this idea is theoretical and could be wrong.
