Someone seriously asked me today if they should buy FB stock as soon as they go public in the hope that they could sell in a few months and make a little profit.

All I could say was that it's a scam.

We'll see.

The entire stock market is a big swindle.
Just look at who elected J. Brown as governor of California.
Think for profit education and the Dream Act. Who will end up paying for all the loans? Whos is going to make money out of this swindle?
