    Facebook is to start at a target of 96 Billion dollars, with shares about 25-35 Bucks a share. How many should I buy 200? 300? Or as the wife says, maybe 10 just for fun and the rest goes investing in my shoe fund :-)

    It may be a good short term investment but it is not made for the long haul. He let it get too big. The growth potential is close to peak. It is almost time for the next new best thing to hit!

  • Ratboy

    @ oops never mind…..GAS!!!

    There goes another midget!!!! :lol:

    My kids are on it, and they told me some of the new features on the way, On-Line streaming movies, Music etc..So I did some research, and if they implement all the featurs they say they are and if someone put $10,000 on shares? By my calculations, I think a person within 18 months could double their investment, and within 5 years Quad it.

    But to be honest if I do buy shares it will only be about $2000.00 to start and I’ll track it and make more decisions then.

    @Rats
    There goes another midget!!!!

    LOL..I’ll stay off the elevators

  • Jack

    Nancy, are you the welcome wagon for TVBTN ? Once again Nancy you show your ignorance.You tell Muhamed to give it a rest and leave Ralph alone ,that’s he’s entitled to his opinion without your critique. Muhamed ,I guess your not entitled to state your opinion,because queen Nancy said so.
    Ralph ,I like most of your post. Now 99.9% of Nancy’s post are just down right ignorant .She never will condemn the like of Boss,Gable Suckitstinger and others when they call Ratboy name’s .Ratboy get called name’s on here damn near everyday.Do you ever hear Nancy condemning them? The answer is NO.There what she calls “real man.”Nancy just go and play with your Cenk blow up doll and maybe Suckitstinger will bring the muffins.

    Heeeey buddy, have some of the coffee from the pot on the left.noooo the one on the left, I made it SPECIAL juuuuust for youuuuuuu! :twisted:

  • muhamed

    Jack….yeah, I found that post by queen Nancy odd myself. what’s funny is I’m sure I would agree with Ralph the majority of the time as well. I like foxnews, I lean conservative, but I made some negative comments about Shep Smith that Ralph took exception to, so he then goes on a tangent about a bunch of stuff that wasn’t true, I never said, nor did I even imply. The guy said I was Jay Carney, I hated foxnews because of their success, everyone posting here new about my “BS”, and that I was trying to convince a bunch of people of something, something he said wasn’t true. Then Nanny Nancy jumps in, not knowing anything about the situation, and tells me to leave him alone…still not exactly sure why? why I shouldn’t have the right to set the record straight with Ralph because he said and implied a bunch of nonsense that had no factual basis at all whatsoever, is beyond me. Moreover, let’s also point out something here as well, Ralph wasn’t exactly tactful or respectful in any of his replies toward me, so I gave it right back. What’s wrong with that? You give it, then have tough enough skin to take it. Apparently for Nancy, respect and tact only goes one way…oh well. have a good night all!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Muhamed: Perhaps I wasn’t clear enough. I meant that the people who gloat
    or just plain make up things about Fox News people, spins the BS. So, I didn’t mean that YOU’VE created the BS, but you’re contributing to it. ALL of those who, first thing when the previous night’s numbers go up, love to point out where Fox is down from months before. THe Fox News haters, (although you claim that you’re just ‘anti-Shep) rarely compare Fox vs. MSNBC & CNN. They judge FOX against itself.

    Case in point: TONY, above: >>> O’Reilly still can’t get 3+ million viewers. <<< Now, how dumb is that statement? O'Reilly is the ONLY cable TV news host who has surpassed the Three Million viewers barrier. But, someone like Tony would just lie. Bill O'Reilly will soon exceed Letterman's audience..

    Now, I asked you "what kind of drugs are you taking?" or words to that effect. You can't take that personally. It's a common light-hearted humorous rhetorical question, not to be taken seriously. And, comparing you to Jay Carney, I'm saying that you have been spinning how Shepard Smith is losing his audience. To your question about my claim that everyone knows this is bull, it wasn't ALL about you. I started with the Rachel Maddow is down" and I explained why. As to the "If you're not happy, go somewhere else" was not me telling you to take a hike. It was: If you don't like Shep, watch someone else.

    I'm not a bully. I'm just giving my opinion, man. The tension rises when I've seen several posts in a row posting BS info, just to give clues to the truly clueless to convince them how to think. I usually stand up for "the little guy." True, Shep is a big boy and he can take care of himself.

    @1NANCY2, thanks for standing up for free. But, I, too, am a big boy who can take care of himself.

    As far as the things you've said about me, you made it personal. You pretended like you actually knew me.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Muhamed: Ignore that last line. I was going to say one more thing, but I thought better about it and decided not to.

    @1Nancy2: I MEANT to write, “thanks for standing up for ME, not free.

    Peace

  • muhamed

    @Ralph – LOL, sure…

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Jack: Hey…I love Ratboy. But, when people post clip-and-paste manuscripts and manifestos, I usually tend to move on.

    HEY, YOU! LEAVE RATBOY ALONE!

    He’s a jolly good person who takes everything in stride, and like Coffee Steve, keep me in stitches now and then. They were the first two friends that I made when I ‘enlisted’ here. lol

  • Suikostinger

    @Jack

    “Their not there”

    lol……..

  • 1nancy2

    Ralph
    “As far as the things you’ve said about me, you made it personal. You pretended like you actually knew me.” Explanation please. Oh, by the way, you are welcome, Ralph.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Ratboy
