Facebook and Amway
Seeing as how Facebook stock is released for trading today I thought I would bring it up and how I remembered or don’t remember Facebook being talked about at Amway meetings.
I remember at Amway cult meetings our sack of shit Platinum would talk about Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg. I’m a little foggy on what the Amway asshole was spouting off on because he often went off on rants for an hour or so getting distracted constantly and heading off on a new rant as something else to bitch about crossed his mind.
Facebook started trading on the stock market today May 18 2012 at $38 except it shot up to an opening of $42. It hit a high of $45 before settling in around the $40 mark. If its typical of most stocks opening day will hit a high and then it will go down so often its a good idea to wait a few weeks or months before buying.
When Facebook first started many employees were offered stock options so today many of Facebook’s staff are now worth tens of millions of dollars. Many of them are in their twenties. Many of them will walk away and never work again for the rest of their lives.
A concept that is pretty much foreign when it comes to Amway. The only people who don’t have to work for the rest of their lives and have millions of dollars rolling in would be the heirs of the founders.
Ambots go around bragging that Amway made $11 billion in sales last year. I’ve had brainwashed ambots leave those comments on my blog. That’s great for the owners of the company but not so much for employees. Well unless any employees are given profit sharing options. I doubt it because I’ve had employees show up here to say that Amway gives them fuck all in benefits.
Take that 11 billion in sales. That’s not profit. That’s sales. Now comes overhead - cost of production, cost of maintaining Amway buildings, payroll, taxes, etc. I’m not sure how much is leftover after all financial obligations are met for profit for the Amway owners. Maybe a billion or so? The owners ain’t splitting their profit with the lowly employees/IBOs. They’re donating to charity so they can take less of a hit on their personal income taxes and they are living in mansions and jet setting around the world. The heirs are not showing up at Amway functions flogging their wares.
The majority of IBO’s get a commission check of around $10/month from Amway if they bought the required quota of 100PV about $300 worth of Amway products that month. That’s how Amway makes that $11 billion in sales. An army of brainwashed ambots who will keep buying these overpriced products until they get tired of losing money and quit. Its bad enough losing all that money buying Amway products when the same products can be purchased at grocery and drug stores for less, therefore saving money. I might not be getting a $10 commission check from Walmart but if I spend $75 buying the same products that it costs me $300 to buy from Amway then I’m coming out ahead. Especially since I’m buying better quality products from Walmart. I mean nothing pisses me off more than spending 3 to 4 times more money for Amway’s shitty dishwasher soap that doesn’t get my dishes clean when I can buy a better product at Walmart for a fraction of the price and I don’t have to wash dishes a second time around by hand.
I would say Facebook has probably created a lot more millionaires than Amway when it comes to people in their 20’s who can now retire and never work again.
I would say that Facebook doesn’t get called a scam or a pyramid scheme nowhere near as much as Amway does.
I would say that Facebook created a lot more people than Amway who were able to work for two to five years and then walk away and retire on their riches or have residual income rolling in for the rest of their lives.
I’d say Facebook doesn’t get accused of brainwashing and using mind control techniques as much as Amway does.
I’d say Facebook doesn’t get accused of followers losing tons of money the way Amway does. At least not yet! Who knows what the stock market will do!
I’d say Facebook doesn’t get accused of destroying marriages and causing as many divorces as Amway does.
I’d say Facebook doesn’t get accused of causing as much emotional distress as Amway does.
I’d say Facebook doesn’t get accused of ripping people off like Amway does.
So just what did our sack of shit Platinum say about Facebook? Its starting to come back to me now! Mostly he bitched about this 22 year old founder who is worth billions of dollars. The fucker was probably jealous! The typical WWDB doctrine of destroying what other people have because nothing makes those World Wide Destructive Bastards happier than when they’re destroying other people’s relationships and finances.
Mostly the sack of shit Platinum talked about using Facebook to snipe prospects into Amway. Not a good idea because Facebook will suspend your account if you’re spamming recruits.
It costs $300/month minimum to invest in “your own” Amway business. For that you get back a $10 commission check. Take that same $300 and buy 7 shares of Facebook stock. Or if you’re a CORE ambot you spend closer to $700/month investing in “your business” and you can take that $700 and buy 17 shares of Facebook stock. Even if Facebook drops in half overnight and you sell, you still make more money than that $10 you get back from Amway! And you probably have a whole lot more fun losing that money than you do losing even more money in Amway! Because when you’re losing money in Amway you still have to put up with being abused from the assholes in your Amway upline. At least when you lose money in Facebook nobody is abusing you and calling you a loser quitter negative unchristian dreamstealer when you decide to quit and sell your shares.
I know I’d rather go around bragging that I own shares in Facebook stock than bragging that I’m an Amway “business owner”. One of them gains respect in the eyes of the person you told that too. The other sinks you a few notches down the old shithole that you’re a dumb ass for putting your money into a pyramid scheme.
