My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
This could not have happened to a more deserving evil corporation. Facebook is digging its own grave. Zuckerberg and his minions think they are the Masters of the universe, the problem most asked is whenever someone thinks they’re the master of the universe the universe strikes back. Is this case Apple strikes back. shutting down all the internals apps that Facebook employees used to communicate with each other a move as masterful as something Nancy Pelosi with do to Trump.
Today has been a bad news Day for Facebook. First Banks set off alarms because too many people were asking for chargebacks. Turns out Facebook sneered teenagers into thinking they were playing a game just for the cost of all of their internet data in fact they started charging the teenagers parents cards without giving any notice to anyone. Parents saw it on their bills started calling the banks and credit card companies and the chargebacks started. When a company has more than 1% in chargebacks in a month, alarms go off. Facebook had 5%!
This Insidious company that has tried to become the new Ma Bell, is finding itself on the same receiving end that AT&T did at the turn of the century. AT&T was broken up into lots and lots of smaller entities and I think Facebook is going to be facing the same state. It’s why Facebook is trine too quickly merge as many of these companies into one so that when they split up it will seem like the government has done its job. merging Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger into one unit does not mean that they should not be divided even more. This company has gotten too big and it is not too big to fail.
Even the Willie Horton ad was never pulled off the air. And if something that is in favor of trump is pulled off the air by Fox, you know it was bad. The divider in Chief loses another one of his battles. We need to make sure he doesn’t win the war. It’s amazing that we have a president who actually wants us to hate each other and that’s what he is. When he demonizes Democrats as the other, does he not realize that more than half the country Falls underneath that label?
On a day that’s Donald Trump filled the news media with Spam, this should have been the headline. Donald Trump could go flying to the Moon and back but he will not win if voting is not restricted by Republican laws aimed at minority communities. Even a supreme court with only eight members saw how long these voter ID laws are. This election is going to be won at The Ballot Box and not in Trump’s media extravaganzas.
Today was a day that will be more pivotal than Trump’s speech and trip because people will be able to vote against him.
