Could FACEBOOK Be Any More Wholesome, Or Cold Tomorrow?

  According to the Wall Street Journal, Friday’s Major IPO had Facebook stockholders only selling about 20% of the company’s common stock. Inundated by hype that’s a startling percentage when according to The Los Angeles Times the financial frenzy accumulated around $16 billion in the third-largest public offering in U.S. history. Oh for when billions were what millions meant.
  Still, success was even shorter of euphoric as Reuters reported Wayne Kaufman, chief market strategist at John Thomas Financial, saying, “We have got some unhappy guys out there.” Sentiment an unidentified Wall Street retail broker confirmed. “They were hoping for Facebook to be considerably better. I bet there are a lot of disappointed people in the market.”
  Facebook fizzles Yahoo opined since the shares rose to the mid-forties then back near the $38 dollar starting offer. Sadly institutional investors had to step in to stabilize the stock observers yesterday boasted were the only investors capable of the leverage to buy in since this Initial Public Offering was so huge. Hm?
  Well, business proceeds. There’ll be music with Facebook depicted as everyone’s social media friend. A fresh campaign as if we weren’t already entertained by the mass harvesting of glittering cash. Meanwhile maintaining public interest is undertaken by real market go-getters in addition to that being how Facebook already is, plus too big to fail. Gone are the days of casual Internet behavior, by-bye. People will feel forced to SET controls on their cyber-activity or the distraction of everything under the moon sold to them will overwhelm.
  No matter how financial giants paint Facebook’s Super-Sizing, you have to admit it’s a wonderful thing. In ages past people didn’t really participate in much of anything worth anything without financial access. So civilization has gotten somewhere if Facebook has 800 million users and growing. God forbid the service gets where it costs so much.

January  4 - 8, 2016
  Once again I can't reiterate or emphasize enough that this preposterous concept not believing global warming is a factor could ever excuse mistreating the global biological framework of this entire planet. 25 Sea Turtles washed ashore Long Island this morning having been frozen because they'd been confused and not migrated south. A few were saved but how many stuck to the ocean floor? Dust to dust, but it's the innocent who're punished and guilty conspiring to cherish rewards of encroachment on nature's domain.
Look at yourselves. Really look. Everyone. 
  Oh Dear Facebook. What's in a name? Promise or token appeal? Prestige or ethics or just a seal?
  One could under-imagine Mr. Zuckerberg tearing through the office in their earlier days, lighting into employees if perhaps the ads producing revenue weren't engaging. Not, as in interesting. But as installed, clicking in, cha-ching. Unlike this office where shoulder shrugs remind the despondent brain cookies crumble. While modifying to meet a shrewd outcome may be all it takes? That's hardly searching for full truth preferring valuing readers' trickling pennies as a basic real value, one. "The real world's" apparently most disregarded. Pragmatic absolute realistic measuring unit one. Nor inflated one where exploitation serves a purpose. Because it's accepted truth's better twisted to fit rather than question the twisted truth.
  Jeez. Financial complaints? That's life in the 40th Anniversary Year of the poem inspired by the Roger Dean picture of the lone man climbing the skinny mountain inside the YES album, FRAGILE. 

Closing in on a goal to achieve,
One must clear their own frontier.
Keep sights in line and goals in time,
And great wonders will appear.
Once conceived, all you'll need
Is the effort which attains accomplishment.
Thank you.
So sense of humor for everybody as this year's time
is found.

  But, once again, ad nauseam, the local CBS radio business forecaster, just as he'd done months before the 2008 economic collapse when he said experts don't expect the coming catastrophe others warned of and so he advised keeping investment up. Despite the eventual gloom the unrealistically inflated economy was doomed to face. Houses aren't actually piles of money yet treated as if they are. And so on. So now, this morning, 1/5/2016. Advise was automobile experts anticipate two more years of successful sales. Hell, cars'll soon be programmed to spend our day in traffic while we sleep playing games, finagling money, clicking a donation or two. While continuing to pretend losers won't do real labor that's no longer needed to be paid for as if work were never regarded as real anyway. Especially, he gushed, since naive "millennials are 30% of the market." Nothing, nada, zilch about participation in a logical transportation transition. Except ignoring responsibility for finance trending to destroy Detroit's inner-city because the industry's success actually circulated elsewhere becoming inspiration for China's rampant inspired by America's elite's success. Well played money-making money and - good luck with that.
  I could defend sensible car use as easily as sensible gun use. Yet reality's actually beyond the necessity of defending either. So remember there's not really any such thing as right or wrong, but simultaneously right and wrong.
  Be realistic? Sure. I'm all for giving it a shot. Otherwise move out of your way. Got it. 
  And again. Good luck with that since the next day the exact same local business forecast used the term, "psychological boost" in redundant Babbittry on behalf of a subsidized industry that's more than given people alse belief it's realistic worshipping the car
  Just this morning, walking home, an older gentleman stopped at a green light with traffic behind and also coming the other way while he was signaling for me to cross with his permission. That I always refuse because that idea mobile throne sitters give people something has led to countless accidents and so something I object to. But finally, after honking at me, he hits the gas while shaking his brain enclosed head because I wouldn't honor the belief mobile throne offering's are really gracious when they're an act of naive superiority. So Solomon might remind there's exceptions to the rule? 
  So the business forecaster, using the term "psychological boost," could be realistically guessed to be, ultimately, pitching advertisers, rather than a better performing, fully circulating, economy. Financial façade without razz-ma-tazz promotional-ism boasting of sponsorship by Bloomberg Business. That totemized NYC name from a former relatively adequate good NYC mayor. Pedalstal-ized against pervasive gun possession. While apparently content backing a century of auto idealization undermining mass transit because "cultural suicide's" not his affair. Pointlessly not using alternate fuel experiments in sports-car racing that was racing's great tradition. We can get to the moon any time we want. Why's it so important to get there in a car? No one's asking Nascar to become solar powered nuts. But not giving a crap? Running on, for all practical purposes, down-graded jet fuel. Car Racing is a metaphor for the ongoing financial spin circulation dreams its' way across the top. Where money's shared selling and re-selling while the less-leveraged lower classes pour their financing up to purchase the fiction of riches deemed theirs for just for a major-minor cost. BAH HUMBUG
  Epilogue: Morning of 1/7/2016, a peep about mass transit was heard from the above cited business forecaster, Joe Connolly. Keep up some good work. Meanwhile the other Gov. Gateway, of New York, announced further auto subsidy stabilizing bridge tolls to come out of other revenue sources. Though I am against gouging customers. Still, more subsidy of a system that's truly allowed to exploit the public's misunderstanding of what contributing to the planet's future really means. 

This comment's unusual because The Soapbox View refuses to advocate any person for the American Presidency.

  Nonetheless I am very, extremely, upset by the local Corporation for Public Corporate Broadcasting radio station, WNYC's sycophantic pandering praise of Governor Gateway of New Jersey and if the American public selects Gov. Gateway president I will think God should just as well take this planet out. Because those who relish taking on God's benign judgement for themselves in a malignant fashion will only grow in influence. And as such their more profitable Criminal Enterprise System using the police against themselves and the people will continue as will the pounding of their Chester chests rather than humbly submitting to this world's judgement of our troubles as God's final say alone.
P.S. Funny huh, right? How a soapbox loner bows to no person alive on this planet? 

  But while I'm p____d. This redundant traditional critically posing of NYC's Mayor de Blasio as not being of the traditional conservative economic logic persuasion, and consequently naive, is utter balderdash. He did not escalate the cost of everything in New York so only large amounts of money maneuver the city. Real Estate bought and sold and shared while the money hardly touches down. G__ d___ shame. Suck it up privileged and fly right. 
  So, consequently, if The Soapbox View's reading numbers are to be believed. Maybe those posing as Conservatives have chosen not to read my criticism anymore. Making self-satisfied liberals the next target for their lazily combatting that contrived other supposedly self-satisfied political persuasion that's battling their own definition of progressivism? Heretofore labeled here as making up history as it goes along. Go ahead. Label my opinion that too. I dare ya'llBut back to Mr. Posturer who on Sunday used that ole heading off criticism tactic, grandstanding over guns, calling President Obama "a petulant child" when that's exactly how I've always seen Governor Gateway pompously posing as the Poster Child for Enforcing a Moral Farce. Bait and switch Americanism? 
  One question: Why is there not pride in paying taxes as there is in paying (not necessarily affording) exorbitant real estate though both are rudimentary foundations of our country's paying for itself? A remnant of that ole excuse the weak undermine our strength. Especially in NYC where the mayor is blamed for the more visibly homeless when I've seen more of an age group sleeping on the streets that were never out there before which obviously resulted from the posture that there's no such thing as success unless the wealthy are satisfied. Hardly economic circulation and not entirely the elite's fault but rather the leeches attached to them. Ooo, now I'm in trouble?

  Ultra-wealthy Americans are able to hire high-priced lawyers, real-estate planners, lobbyists, and anti-tax activists who exploit and defend a dizzying array of tax maneuvers, virtually none of them available to taxpayers of more modest means. 

From The Chatter in The New York Times, Sunday Business, 1/3/2016. 
What resonates, reverberates in the appearance
of projecting merely a great politician.
  Saudi Arabia executes 47. Iran vows continuing cycle of revenge because a cleric was executed. While responsibility is avoided by the United States of America, the world's most prominent nation, that won't stand against the farce of rationalizing execution by using the death penalty itself. As for example going back before and after Nigeria's execution of Ken Saro-Wiwa over how oil revenue wasn't shared. When the U.S. voiced objection but couldn't be taken seriously enough. 
  Ya notice whether, or not, anyone could see profit from this, that the conservatives say liberals say conservatives are what liberals say conservatives say what liberals say conservatives say liberals mean so t's as if there's almost the other's utter cluelessness about what's right about what they're wrong about even when they're both right about being wrong? Still there's a world class mind funk going on here when public discourse is so ruled by cliché. 
  So to conclude. However much people profess worthiness of forgiveness, there's nothing God/Allah can't see for what we really mean. Because paraphrasing Stevie Wonder,
you ain't done nuthin yet.
Plus, "It's been a long, long time. Isn't it?"
