No, speculators don't own us. I HAVE been a speculator, placing my bets on something going up when I see it's most likely going to do that. That doesn't make it go up. The MANIPULATORS in power make it go up. It goes up from demand, from headlines, because of the guys setting the prices, the emotional frenzy, the massive amount of money they put into it to make the price move [up or down, they're going to make money], the regulations they put out there, the bills passed by Congress and signed by the POTUS, and also because of the stupidity of the populace. If more did what they could, well, it would be better still, but then they'd find a way to raise prices anyhow, wouldn't they. They're going to, that's for certain. The government won't help beyond what help they say they're doing or giving because they're invested into it as well and know from their bills what's going to profit!
