Wait a minute... you're telling me facebook makes billions of dollars and that money doesn't come from all the revenue generated through having free accounts?!
I know, shocking right?

They once considered charging for accounts. $12.

And people were losing their minds over the concept. Some people just don’t get that nothing is free and the money to pay for whatever comes from somewhere. Just because you didn’t pay for it directly doesn’t mean it wasn’t paid for.

Makes me think of the people that want to vote for somebody because they're offering free college, or free something else. Nothing is free. Somebody is always paying for it. In those cases, it's the tax payers through increased taxes.

My credo
I poop in the furnace.
Im still trying to wrap my head around the dude running for president who wants everyone to get $1,000 a month from the government for nothing. Where is the government getting that money from? The taxpayers pay taxes so the government can use the tax money to give the taxpayers money?

Can't I just skip 5 steps and not pay taxes? :icon_confused:
