    Topic: 12/11 in NYC

    Oddly enough, I had a premonitory nightmare last night about terrorism and unfortunately, I awoke to the news of a suicide bombing in Times Square. As a former resident of NYC who lived one block from the Trade Centers, I have an unusual sensitivity to this type of news.

    This what we know right now:
    The terrorist was a native of Bangladesh but had lived in the U.S. for seven years. In other words, he was a homegrown jihadist recruit and as far as we know at this time, had not traveled abroad for ISIS training. This is why many believe he managed to “blow the mission” because he wasn’t skillfully trained at the home base in Iraq or Syria. Fortunately, only 4 people were injured because this could have easily become a disaster akin to the one that occurred on 9/11.

    My point? Any politician or judge who challenges President Trump’s ban of visitors from key terrorist countries is both a traitor and a fool. What if NYC had had a trained professional from the Middle East carrying a bomb on 42nd Street? That subway stop attracts nearly a million people during morning rush hour.

    I shudder at the thought of what might have been.

    Latest update on FB by L&F Capital Management:

    “… CEO Mark Zuckerberg is doing a masterful job of taking lemons (Russia meddling with the 2016 Presidential Election) and turning it into lemonade. By emphasizing community safety over profits and attempting to turn FB into the most transparent advertising channel out there, Z is ensuring the longevity of FB…”

    Normally, I would resist efforts to emphasize anything over profits, but this kid is smarter than your average bear (or should I say bull).

    The article continues :

    “These proactive steps ensure FB avoids a big government crackdown and potentially billion-dollar fines.”

    Brilliant. GM didn’t see this coming decades ago and neither did Bill Gates. Zuckerberg will have to raise operating costs to protect his company from the government’s insatiable desire to take down the makers of the donuts, but it is a relatively small price to pay.

    Maybe it’s ok he is tied into the liberal agenda because he truly understands the damage the enemy can incur.

    “Facebook Has a Public Trust Problem, While We Trust Amazon Like a Bank.”

    This is the title from an essay written by Ricochet economics contributor James Pethokoukis. I read this and practically wept at his ignorance.

    I don’t like Mark Zuckerberg’s politics anymore than the rest of you on this site, but he has produced something for which advertisers pay big bucks and his earnings on 10/29 were stellar. I bought his stock at $72 (late to the game) and it is now trading at $172 and change.

    Why don’t we ignore all the social and political aspects of any company? Investing in a profitable enterprise and living well is the best revenge against all socialist agendas.

    • Key: Facebook doesn’t have 2 billion users, it has 2 billion products.

        Expliques s’il te plait. FB does indeed have 2 billion monthly users; am unsure what you mean by 2 billion products. Thanks!
