Since the big Facebook IPO was a disaster, Between Facebook and JPMorgan, Wall St. woes mount | ajc.com
Almost four years after the financial crisis, Wall Street still can’t get it right.

Investor anger mounted Wednesday over the initial public offering of Facebook stock last week, which was fumbled by the banks that managed the deal and complicated by technical problems at the Nasdaq stock exchange.
Shareholders filed at least two lawsuits against Facebook and Morgan Stanley, the bank that shepherded the IPO, over reports that it withheld negative analyst reports about Facebook from some clients before the company went public
I thought tonight we would have a bit of fun with it….
From my Occupy Friend, who writes on her Facebook like it is a blog:
Do something, anything, but don’t be complacent. And for those who will jump my s*%t for writing in my vote in November, a write in still a vote and means I am participating.
She also had this to say when the Romney bully stuff came out:
I have resisted slamming Romney’s bullying experience because I wanted to process it it thoughtfully. Because it was many years ago, I thought perhaps we could chalk it up to youthful stupidity… but as I have thought about it, he was not in elementary school when this incident of bullying occurred and that makes me think it really does say something about the person he is now. If you consider all his adult life activities, it is further evidence that this man is not leader material. Anyone who thinks so highly of himself that he believes he has the right, or apparently, in his mind, the duty, to dictate how another human being should wear his hair, then, when you think of his corporate raiding activities — it’s just more of the same attitude – I know best and fuck you!
I really love checking her posts out.
Another thing I found was this picture of dinner from my friend who is in OKC. Her husband is in Afghanistan:
Looks good doesn’t it? She just put the stuff together on her own, which is the best way to cook sometimes.
That site is always posting interesting links and images.
And then there is George Takei who is the best at posting funny stuff! But… he also posts some activism items too:
Last year I teamed with Patty Duke to urge seniors to sign up for Social Security online. Now I am urging Congress to make Social Security EQUAL for ALL working Americans who paid into the system, including LGBT couples who face daily discrimination in benefits. And this senior citizen is ready to open some whoopass.
Join me at Rock for Equality‘s Social Security Equality Act Rally in DC on Thursday, April 26th. Read about the rally and RSVP / spread the word. Thanks, friends.
