Tyler Durden's picture





 

As we anxiously await the titanic announcement about to spew forth from Menlo Park, we thought a look at 2013's +20% performance was worthwhile. We would expect to hear a plethora of 'monetizing mobile' and a cajillion eyeballs must mean something. Will the Facebook phone replace the Obama-phone? Will being 'liked' provide external stimulus? Will they be merging with Dell (or Radioshack?) Feeling bullish? Be wary, implied vol is at its most expensivce to realized vol in 7 months... Rest assured, we will bring the critical headlines as they break...

  • *FACEBOOK SAYS IT'S A PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT                :FB US
  • *FACEBOOK ANNOUNCES GRAPH SEARCH                          :FB US

FB stumbling now -1.7%

 

Implied vol is very expensve to realizeds (i.e. people are 'hedged')...

But that's a selling point these days. 

Insight into a "tell" I'm following...

Wife of a friend has been calling this debt-binge/credit/housing/AAPL/FB fiasco from the start...

She works for red hat at @$110k... typical NOVA princess, Reston Town Center is freaking DISNEYLAND to these people.  She makes good money but she's broke... says things like, "um, that's LAST years Louis Vuitton purse" or "my friend's AWESOME he works for Deutche Bank."  Sold all her 'unwanted' gold in '08. 

She leases her Benz E-class and does dumb princess shit like call the dealer and schedule an appt cuz the "tire looked low."  She has two nice sized bank-owned breasts.  Artificial insemination PROCESSES starting 2 years ago, all on leverage... buku bucks, baby due in Feb. 

In 2006 she bought a condo.  She now rents it at a $680 monthly LOSS... hanging on to it ALONG WITH the 2-bdrm beach house she bought the same year... insisting that "housing will come back."

Last year, and OUT OF NOWHERE, she told her husband they should buy the FB IPO... cuz all her friends "said."  Two of these women bought homes in '06.  

These chicks are BIGTIME trendy.  So it's PEAK freaking anything if they like it.  Hers is the group that provides the TOP TICK.

So she's made another "call" recently.. actually two.  1) She's "kinda getting sick of facebook"  2) After years of igadgets, she just bought a SAMSUNG GALAXY

But its a great case study and you don't wanna ruin that.  Her patterns of behavior should be left undisturbed.  They should be observed, and when appropriate, faded.  You can't wake someone like this up.  These are fanatics. 

You can learn from them too though.  Like this... I was unaware that many Louis Vuitton bags have good 'resale' value.  It was certainly better than I thought.  So to her, buying gold is like buying a purse.

You realize that blood has been taken from DUI suspects for decades, right?  There are numerous methods of search that have been declared to fall outside of the need to have a warrant (e.g. plain sight, hot pursuit of a felon, exigent circumstances, etc.).  This one was settled a long time ago.

Further, there is nothing forcing you to submit to testing.  States offer suspects two options: (1) submit to testing and if you pass, then you're free to go...  if you don't, then you're going to the pokey; or (2) refuse and commit the crime of refusal (justified under the auspices of submission to the State's jurisdiction when you obtain your State license)...  and the crime of refusal is sometimes worse than actually failing a DUI/DWI test.

You are always free to refuse the tests...  and this is what EVERYONE used to do until the States closed the loophole.  Think about it, if the police are prohibited from determining your BAC, then how could you ever be convicted of driving while intoxicated?  [as an aside, an officer's testimony alone is probably enough for a conviction, but testing provides a more objective means of determining innocence].  Needless to say, every lawyer advised his clients to NEVER submit to any testing and would then go argue that the state never met its burden of proof...  after enough of those cases fell through, States closed the loophole...

The 4th amendment has been bleeding to death for a long time.

http://www.duiblog.com/2013/01/10/supreme-court-ponders-forced-blood-draws-in-dui-cases/

At first they punish you for not submitting, then they just force you to submit.

At first they imprison you without trial on suspicion of being a 'terrorist' - then they just kill you with a drone strike.

We had exactly one presidential candidate that seemed to give a fuck about the Bill of Rights, and he was smeared as an extremist who wanted to help Iran nuke all of Israel's children.  So fuck this country - it's getting what it deserves for submitting to the 2 party dictatorship, and for voting a guy in for a second term who had broken just about every promise he made as a candidate - a guy installed into power by a cabal of rich Chicago crooks.

Our best hope may be to experiment with spiders and hope that we can create a race of "Spidermen" who can resist those who would have the world under a central government using 1 world currency issued by a private central bank.

I don't think there's any chance of forced blood tests becoming common and mandatory...  Think of it like this, if he does nothing, then the police officer can charge you with refusal (really, really easy for the prosecutor to prove) that carries a stiffer penalty than a DWI...  or, if he wants to give you a blood test, he has to do unnecessary additional work, wait around to be able to do it, call for warrants, etc...

Why would they take that back up?  Seems strange...  It's the least intrusive means possible for law enforcement to prove its case and, depending on the circumstances, a "cursory" measure.  While it's more intrusive than a breathalyzer, if you refuse to blow, I don't see any problem with it when there is probable cause for DUI.  Whether the cops take it or haul you to the hospital and have some other person do it seems to be practically indistinguishable.  You're not going to gain any sympathy for drunk drivers regardless of its detriment to "freedom".

Bullshit...  they can do roadblocks, but they'll need to articulate a sufficient legal basis for doing so...  and they are limited in number and scope.

    Bullshit...  they can do roadblocks...

Yes, a roadblock is the kind of thing that would stop EVERYONE.  I personally have been stopped by police at checkpoints to "check to ensure folks were wearing seatbelts."  This was in New York State--you know, one of those big liberal "blue" states where the criminals' rights are protected and all that claptrap.

Interestingly, the fact that I was wearing my seatbelt didn't prevent the cops from giving me a ticket for an expired registration on one occasion, or from asking me if I'd "mind" if they searched my car on another occasion.

I understand there may be laws on the books that suggest something different, but the fact is that the USA is a fascist totalitarian state, and laws protecting the so-called "rights" of the populace are NEVER going to be permitted to interfere with police operations when it really comes down to it.

So he goes on Pissarse's show and basically uses the microphone as a Bullhorn, which has always been his style. Had Pissarse actually engaged Alexis in a debate, he would have made AJ look 10 times worse, say what you will but pissarse is a good debater and most dumbass americans equate a brit accent with sophistication. Funny thing is AJ's appearance has garned some vague sort of support including Howard Stern of all people. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lUl11h0iX8

 

Second thought is the follow up pissarse show where Piss and a couple of his guests joked about shooting Alex ... aren't there laws against that?

Bottom line is that whatever AJ's motive was he played right into the anti gun lobby and the whore media but maybe in time his message will take hold or maybe he's just a sleeper agent activated at the exact right moment.

I don't think he played into anything...  I think, at worst, it was net neutral in that piers looked like a douchebag and AJ looked crazy...  that piers had no valid arguments and aj made some decent points, despite a maniacal delivery.  If you're into ad hominems, then I guess it could have come out poorly, but otherwise I'm not sure he was detrimental to the cause (although clearly attempting to placate a particular audience and obnoxiously insincere given his thespian skills).

Dear Junkers:

 

Perhaps you misunderstood.  You see, his appearance on Piers Morgan was the gift that keeps on giving to those who would, in fact, like to disarm the populace {either because they're thinking of the children, or they're thinking of the..unpleasantness... that may occur when the dollar collapses and/or oil prices go through the roof once the neocons get this Iran war going} and of course, he's a huge supporter of Israel.

 

He supports Israel so much that, despite basing his whole career around conspiracy theories and talking about 'false flags' - he is very considerate not to talk about the King David Hotel bombing {blamed on Aye-rabs - at first}, or the Lavon Affair {blamed on Aye-rabs - at first} or the USS Liberty {blamed on Aye-rabs - at first} or the dancing Israelis and Israeli spy ring of 9/11 {blamed on ayerabs}.

Hey, I could give a shit, but the guy's silence is deafening.  Go on youtube and look for the stuff where Alex Jones makes the absurd claim that Arabs run Hollywood.  Talk about being a clumsily obvious "zionist" shill.

I mean, I love AJ's work on exposing the federal reserve, but then he was sort of wishy washy about Ron Paul and didn't attack Romney's absolute silence on that issue, or the fact Romney had surrounded himself with the same sort of Jewish neocons who brought us the Iraq war.

I listen to his show now and then, but come on...  he's not helping us preserve the 2nd against the inevitable executive orders coming for the children.... and I get that he doesn't want to lie down with antisemitic dogs, but to not talk about the fucking neocons and the pro-Israel lobby is absurd.

It seems like he won't talk about certain things pertaining to Israel and it's lobbying groups, but plenty of other people are doing that.  He seems to have done a lot of good work on issues like the fed and gmos.

I just have a hard time believing that he went on Piers Morgan and decided the best thing to do was not respond to any questions and start challenging the guy to a boxing match.  Compare and contrast AJ's appearance with say Ventura's. 

I'm not saying he's 'controlled opposition' or whatever, but I'm saying I'm far more suspicious of the guy post Piers Morgan than before.  And the more I see ball washing comments the more I suspect a legion of paid trolls.

Actually, he's got a valid point. For a business, FB is about as low cost as one can get when it comes to networking with customers. I remember years back, when searching for a local small businesses on the web, you wouldn't find anything except for tiny listings in specialty directories, which were all very stale content.

Now, if they don't have their own website, they almost always have a FB page.

Besides, FB is an intelligence tool, to think it's going away anytime soon is to totally miss where it actually provides value (and to whom).

I dunno, to me Facebook is the Maroon 5 of social media.   Sure, some people are still on board, but I think most people are starting to find the whole enterprise a little suspect.  If nothing else, I believe Project Mayhem would absolutely see Facebook and its spy agency collusion as a rich target.

I deleted mine after reading a few articles about how Facebook collects information.  The final straw was the fact they basically embedded malware/spyware in their iPhone app.

But google, too, is absolutely lousy with tracking software, and has partnered up with both US and Israeli intelligence agencies.  I'd buy into the idea they were interested in fighting terrorists if they hadn't, you know, done 9/11.  I'd even forgive that if they could prosecute a Jimmy Dimon or too, but they hold us all in too much contempt to even fabricate some Potemkin justice for the massive financial crimes the private federal reserve and it's mostly european/jewish owners are essentially there to backstop.

 

This is all just prelude to a fuck though.   I suspect the US government, or rather, Joe Lieberman types inside the government will have pretty much full control and access to/of the web in a couple years. 

 

The powers that be can't possibly let the internet remain free and unencumbered.  For a while they tolerated it, but as the population ages, more and more people rely on the internet and internet culture for news and attitudes.   On the internet, banks are more or less criminal organizations, and we're becoming a post-constitutional empire in thrall to a tiny mideast ethnarchy with bold plans for expansion.

 

I just want to be left alone and really could give a fuck anymore - the full spectrum dominance of the Bernaysian Messaging is pretty admirable, actually.

 

People really believe that "al Qaeda" did 9/11 and that Iraq and Afghanistan were connected to it, while no one knows about the NORAd stand-down or the dancing israelis or odigo or netanyahu's whereabouts - even though the intertubes are replete with information which would at least make a thinking person have some doubts about the Zero Dark Thirty narrative, amongst others.

 

It's hella ironic that we have a population with access to more information [good, bad, and fabricated] than any population in the history of the planet - yet they are some of the most passive, unquestioning, conditioned thinkers ever.

Although you're absolutely correct that some types within the gummit would LOVE to have this, there's no freekin' way anything remotely resembling this scenario will come to pass.

The Feds are idiots.  They can't do ANYTHING right.  Nevermind the fact that people with actual skills and knowledge OUTSIDE the gummit will be working against them, the availability of networking technology would make it possible to set up alternative routes to Internet resources without too much difficulty.

I certainly don't suggest you trust them or use the web carelessly (because for certain most of our corporations are more than happy to "work with" the Feds when there's a check involved--this is why all our calls and emails are recorded nowadays), but I'd say you can lighten up a great deal about the gummit "controlling" the Internet.

I have family and friends spread all over the world. Facebook was great for having a way to look at photos and keep in touch. Email was hard because of all the addresses kept changing. Plus my son was born and people wanted to see pictures. As a tool it was nice, in terms of private info, my name was on there. And where I went to college and that was it. I saw friends with addresses, cell #s, just about everythin about them. I thought they were insane.

How that somehow got valued at $100 billion is beyond me. Then I kept getting asked to help plant stuff, join who's it what's gang, and other brainless crap. Then the news feed became the bitch board. I rooted my phone just to get rid of the Facebook app. Fucking thing was like a virus, you'd shut it down and then it would still find some way to run so it could notify you every time some chick in your friends list got pissed at one of her friends.

I used to check Facebook once a day. Then once a week, and now I haven't looked at the site in at least six months. My sister's pissed I keep missing her "updates". Am I really missing anything?
