So as some of you may know yeaturday Facebook went public. Did any of you guys get some of their shares? I was able to get a few before the websites started to crash. I think Facebook would be a good investment considering how mainstream it's become.

Cause every setback sets you up for a comeback

                I will be the first to admit that I know absolutely ZERO about the stock market or facebook.  That said, I did not get any of the stock.  Nor did I have the desire.  It just seems to me that it could be like the dot com bubble.  What does facebook produce?  It's not a search engine.  It's just a social data mining site.

                I think for it to be viable long term it would have to branch out into other areas and maybe it will with all of the new found wealth by Zuckerberg and his cronies.

                      NO!   And if things work out the way they planned (the crooks), they will soon dump their shares and take the money and run.

                      WHY would any American support a company with the CEO giving up his citizenship to avoid paying US taxes?    If he is that dam dirty to do that then I don't put anything pass him.  He's a .................you fill in the blanks.

                      Anyway, far from me to spoil what you think is a good investment.  But think of this.....WHERE is the revenue going to come from?   Clicks?  I don't think so.  GM dropped them in the wake of the citizenship issue and if and when there is more of an outcry about it (Right now Congress is thinking about what to do with that) I'm sure more will drop his company. 

                      So.....is it still a safe bet ?   I would rather buy instant tickets with my dough.

                            The "crooks" have to wait a specific numbers of days to "dump" their shares.

                            The person who gave up his citizenship was a co-founder named Saverin.

                              Eduardo Saverin is from Brazil, I think, and hasn't lived in this country for a few years.  I don't blame him for denouncing his citizenship so he doesn't have to pay those taxes. 

                              Its elected officials like Chucky Schmucky Shumer that want to pass laws such as an "exit" tax if you renounce your citizenship and you are worth more than $150,000 dollars.  Shumer said, "it is presumed that you are renouncing your citizenship to avoid paying taxes".  Shumer is such a tool.
