When Facebook symbol (FB) IPO'd in May 2012, it was $38.
It plunged thereafter, all the way down to about $18.
The Teabag folks here all called it a loser, and it was worthless. Nobraina was a leader lin condemning Facebook stock
I watched and smiled. I bought some at about $24 in June.
It's now trading at $49.11.
I doubled my investment in four months.
I won't pull a Waxman and tell you how I bought an estate in England, but I insured some pretty good profit, having sold half my original investment, which covered cost basis+.
I love capitalism. I don't mind paying taxes. The more I pay, the more I've earned.
Hi Nutjob. How have you been? How is the trinket business going? Mowing lawns too?

David Brooks was extremely critical of the Ted Cruz wing of the Pepugnant Party today.

He said the Repugnants basically committed suicide by following Cruz,who turned out to have an ideal, but not a plan.

I think Cruz will be crucified within the Repugnant Party after this disaster for them is over.

So either he splits off the radical right into an new party, ala Randy Paul, he of the coonskin hairpiece. A real Daavveeeyy Crockett!!

Either way,it weakens the Party as a whole.

A united Democratic Party vs. a Repugnant Party in danger of splitting into different factions.

Either Cruz heels, or we have a fragmented Repugnant Party, a sure route to electoral disaster.

Most of you regular Teabags are ardent followers of Cruz anarchy.

I'm happy to see you humiliated in abject failure.

There you go again....twisting the truth and not using any common sense.
Saying that "Congress should make changes to improve the law" is not the same thing as "re-writing the law". Your logic is all twisted.
It's those who said they wanted to "repeal, delay or defund" the law that want to see it rewritten. Those who would like to see some changes feel passionate enough about the law to want it to remain in place.
Give it up already. You are making yourself look silly.
eliminating the individual mandate would improve the law...

allowing sale of insurance across state lines would improve the law...

tort reform would improve the law....

DumbDave is such a loser. I love the way you humiliate that moron. Azzwholes like him and Yeah/Ghost enjoy getting 50 cents more per month in their government payment check over doing the right thing and ensuring a better future for our kids.

You are dense. Why no alternative offered vs. nobamakare? Look at the polls, a solid majority of American's do not want the government interfering in their lives and telling them they must purchase a product. They take care of themselves.

So why didn't your side offer alternatives??

All they did was deny it was necessary. They talked about stupid stuff, like tort reform, which doesn't address anything.

There was never, at any point, a realistic Repugnant alternative to Obamacare. All they did tis try to stop it, not offer anything. To this day, they don't have a plan that anyone is willing to talk about.

It was all about blocking any form of healthcare system that could end up covering all Americans, something that is long overdue.

Pretty easy for you Medicare types to complain about people who have no access.

Tell us again about how you paid Medicare taxes. The average person costs the Gov't far more than they paid in taxes.

""Nearly three out of five people said in a recent Associated Press-GfK poll that people who paid into the system deserve their full benefits - no cuts.

But an updated financial analysis shows that the amount workers have paid does not come close to covering the full value of the medical care they can expect to receive as retirees.

Consider an average-wage two-earner couple together earning $89,000 a year. Upon retiring in 2011, they would have paid $114,000 in Medicare payroll taxes during their careers. But they can expect to receive medical services - including prescriptions and hospital care - worth $355,000, or about three times what they put in.""

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/...

Many people earn far less and get far more in Medicare beneifts.

It's clear, the old people are the problem. If young people feel you're getting too much and they're getting too little, old folks will be in real trouble.

George Schwab, who lives in North Carolina, was notified in a letter from Blue Cross Blue Shield on September 23 that his current plan doesn’t meet Obamacare’s benefit requirements and would be canceled at the end of the year. While Blue Cross did suggest a comparable plan, it was $980 more than what he now pays..
The President told the American people numerous times that…‘If you like your coverage, you can keep it,’” Schwab told The Charlotte Observer.“How can we keep it if it has been eliminated? How can we keep it if the premium has been increased 430 percent in one year?”
just the cost of covering pre-existing conditions, birth control, abortions, elimination of caps, etc.....

Why Republicans should be very, very afraid

""It is telling, in the NBC/WSJ poll, that 65 percent of voters think the government shutdown is hurting the economy and 63 percent describe a failure to approve a debt ceiling bill as “a serious problem.” These are memories that are not going to be erased with a handshake deal at the White House and the reopening of the national parks.

What has been happening, in effect, is that the Republicans have been re-enacting the centennial of World War I a year early.

In 1914, cheering throngs all over Europe sent their boys off to war confident that victory could be achieved in a few months with limited casualties. Instead, for the next four years, armies on both sides endured horrible death tolls in the trenches of France. And, increasingly, soldiers found it impossible to recall what they were fighting for.

So it was when the House Republicans shut down the government confident that they could win major concessions from the White House in a few days. Now they are hunkered down in the trenches, with public opinion turning against them, desperate for any rationale to abandon the battlefield. But they cannot simply surrender because … well … that would mean that they have been bleeding in the polls for nothing. Rarely has a political party lost so much so rapidly from a series of strategic blunders. So, for a change, I believe the hype. Republicans will need a long time to recover from their biggest Capitol Hill debacle in memory.""

Rep. Pete King: Obama Should Donate To Ted Cruz

"I think President Obama should send a campaign contribution to Ted Cruz," King said to anchor Wolf Blitzer on CNN's "The Situation Room." "He has done more to boost Obamacare than anyone."

King, who has blamed his own party for the shutdown, also defended his record as a conservative after a viewer asked when King would be switching parties.

"I am a lifetime Republican," he said. "I have a conservative rating of 75 percent. There's nothing Republican about shutting down the government when you don't get what you want."
