Intrade Presidential election trading

  1. I just shorted McCain and bought Obama for a total of USD 5 000 ...
    :D

    Intrade is not federally regulated ... yet.
    May the soles (sic) of the greedy, aggressive, radical, elite theory thumping, corrupt Neoconservatives burn wherever they go where it's hot - and they can get a good stomping with boots up their asses by everyone too.
     
  2. Polls had Democrats winning leading up to 2004 election... don't forget the Diebold factor :D

    So you approve of election fraud. The only surprise is that you admit it publicly.
     
  4. Anyone accepting social and economic Darwinism - also accepts some level of fraud, corruption, distrust etc.
    Then you live through the deceptions, crisis, warring and the revolts... you basically enforce the system by aligning yourself in an hierarchy and pledging your loyalty and servitude to those above you, while plotting to replace them...

    That is how it works - IF you accept social and economic Darwinism - being part of a hierarchical pyramid.


    Well, you on the other hand can extend YOUR structure of integrity and trust - then you can also share this as the basis for interaction with others. This is what happens when you start doing business - you extend your trust - also when you get into personal relationships - you extend and structure your trust.

    Now, with the lack of this trust-extension in society - you accept another system of a hierarchy pyramid and align yourself in it - thereby contributing to it - feeding towards the top.


    I guess most of this is lost on everyone anyway... so just accept the corruption and the social Darwinism - because that is what you want anyway - you just wanted it was you in their places - the elitists.

    That IS the version of the american dream that some of you have - being the bigshot - the one at the top...
    Then have your phony wives who will grab half of what you make - and turn it into a career for her.
    Be happy if you can at least breed to keep the cannibalistic system going for more generations.
    Well - live with it then... and shut your bungholes if you don't like it when they give it to you real hard.


    And remember your Xanax or Valium so you can sleep through the night without twitching your finger while you are clutching to your gun under your pillow, checking to see if your wife really is asleep and not going to stab you while in your sleep... and to feel perky when you get up to work to join the treadmill in manufacturing for those above you - the managerial elite - keeping you in their herd, until you can depose them. No wonder you guys are the world's largest pharmaceutical market and consumers - and users of mental illness services.
    Nice living... I'm sure you are all quite happy with it - making it a career and all...
    Also obvious is how you are in need of "spiritual guidance" and redemption/forgiveness going to church so much.
    It explains a lot really... and just remember - you guys polarize everything with this behaviour.
    Watch out for more terrorists in the future - they will be looking to depose YOU.

    USA! USA! USA! USA! ... hahahaha - talk about sheeplings being fed to their cannibalistic masters... super-sized consumption.
    :p
     
  5. Check out the "sustainability" of a cannibalistic hierarchical pyramid scheme...

    While China, India and Russia "cocks" their guns to give it to you guys...

    You should try and see the "error of your ways". Confer with your minister next sunday...
    :p

    The US Treasury has just outlawed all short-selling of McCain and Obama contracts on InTrade.
     
  7. Oh how does the memory fail us? Of 76 polls in the last two months of 2004 election, Bush led in 64 polls, Kerry led in 5 polls, and 7 were ties. Of 18 polls in the last week before 2004 election, Bush led in 14 polls, Kerry led in 3 polls, and one was a tie. Here is a list of polls up to two months prior to 2004 election:
