    Which means they will make about a million people poor. When are we going to stop this income inequality and force people to work for free after they make to much?

    Facebook IPO to create over 1,000 millionaires

    Before everyone gets all excited about a FaceBook IPO they should go check out Groupons' IPO and see how that went.

    1,000 millionaires equals one billionaire.

    Obama farts a billion dollars every time he eats arugula.

    Excuse me?!?

    Force people to work for free?!? :wtf:

    The only way for fair taxes and a budget balanced by law to give us the economy we want is for people to have the freedom to fail and succeed. You tell me I'm done earning and I'll tell you I'm done working.

    The trick is a fair and simple tax code, like 15% on income with everyone getting to earn the first $25,000 per year free of income tax.

    What does Facebook (or Groupon for that matter) actually produce?
    Tangible, hard, physical goods that are manufactured?

    And folks want to buy into this shit?

    Facebook sucks balls. I was on FB about three years mostly because they had a discussion board app that I really liked. Fox news had one that had a decent ideological mix with minimal moderation. So one day FB decides that the discussion app was going to be deleted along with the entire contents of thousands of boards. They sent out a confusing message to the board admins stating that they have decided that we would like posting to walls better and then started deleting them with no public warning. CNN went first and then Foxnews and then the rest of them. After that crap FB is on my permanent shit list. I know it was a free service and all but the stone cold way they broke us up was just plain wrong, I hope they frigging fail.
