Ok first we had the 1% wannabes crying the blues that they got screwed on  Facebook offering, now we have Chicago police crying the blues that they did not get some overtime pay treatment for cracking down on the 99% during NATO weekend.

If you make an investment or do a job, ted, you should get paid. Otherwise that is exploitation.

For those who have faith, no explanation is neccessary.
For those who have no faith, no explanation is possible.

Roodog, you clearly do not understand how investments work.


If you should do a job, you should get paid.  If you make an investment, you share the risk the company takes.  Zuckermann lost billions in putting his company public.

Yes, but the investors did it with the idea of making money. The Stock market is a crap shoot.

Facebook will bounce back.


As for the police wanting their overtime, it's in their contract.  That should be a no brainer.

Our need to learn should always outweigh our need to be right

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

More people would learn from their mistakes if they weren't so busy denying them.
