FUTURES ARE WAY UP AFTER INVESTORS REALIZE HOW STUPID THEY WERE TO FADE THE POWER OF FACEBOOK

When are you going to realize Zuckerberg is your alpha, literally in charge of your hopes and dreams — decider of whom you will vote for and fall in love with. He is God, more or less, for millions of Americans — fat slobbish beings trapped at home because everything outside is too expensive.


Zuckerberg the Alpha deciding your fate

Yesterday all of the establishment shills were mad at Zuck because he enabled a firm to access the profiles of 50 million Americans, which was then used to elect an Orange Ape. But Zuck does as Zuck likes. He owns most of the stock, has a net worth upwards of $75 billion, and he’s only 33 years old. If Mark wanted to be a cannibal and sustain himself off the loins of dead humans — he would — and there’d be nothing you could do about that — quite frankly.

Today the world has come to grips with Facebook’s hegemony — a company NETTING over $4 billion per quarter, in control of the hearts and minds of billions. Dow futures are +100, Nasdaq +35.

In other news, another mail bomb blew up in Texas today. What the fuck? I don’t know what to think about that, other than the fact we live in violent times.

Here are stocks moving in the pre-market.

    Any bets on Austin, TX? False flags leading to martial law, door-to-door searches and abuses of civil rights just to find out if the texas tough guys are as tough as they say? If the texas pussies let that happen and back down, is that a green light for marxists to go full bore red revolution and communism after the lights go back on? Just askin’…. cuz isnt there a very active Soros-funded Antifa chapter in Austin?

      Sara have you ever heard of the path of least resistance? Some of your theories are so spider webbed they don’t even work in an Orwellian fantasy. It’s Texas. People like to blow shit up. It’s probably kids.

      It’s well known that the Jewish have the highest group IQ. Higher than Asians, Whites and all the rest (AKA people of color). It must be true because Jordan Peterson said so. Right?

      Zuckerberg is Jewish; but he’s not white. Everybody got that? Good, now go back to sleep.

    Social unrest is the product of social complacency. Rip, facefuck.

      Is social unrest organic, incited or driven?
      Fact: working class=democrats, middle class=republicans, upper class=communists.
      Where’s the epicenter of social unrest?

    I still don’t understand why people use Facebook. Get outside and enjoy life, stop telling everyone how good your imaginary life is and go live a real life. Or don’t, stay home, get fat as fuck and wither away.

      Couldn’t agree with you more. Sadly, it seems, we are in the minority.

    I dont use facebook so i dont get it but billions of people evidently its their life. His product doesnt effect me nor do I care about it. To me its worth nothing really. I wonder how much it costs to download this data on people. Can he do a prescription based service on this data he has?

      If you have a child on FB, they will learn about you. If you have a sibling, parent, relative, friend, ex-partner, whatever, they will learn about you.

      That’s the sad reality of these systems, mathematically speaking, one does not need all the data to have complete knowledge, only some percentage of it.
