Parents, check your credit card statements, Facebook is fleecing and stealing from you through your kids

Update:

Moms and dads out there check your credit card statements. Turns out that Facebook is charging your credit cards and duping your kids into playing games that they believe are free.

don’t you have enough problems on your plate without Facebook? Yes I know Facebook is Insidious in our lives but it’s worth getting rid of it even though your kids will hate you for a little while.

itsfunneh getting off of drugs is difficult. Deactivating Facebook is made very difficult by its creator and they will tug at your heartstrings and tell you that you’re leaving friends and familybehind. I believe you have an instrument called a smart phone in your hand and you can call your friends and family or text if you’re not old school.

I deactivated my Facebook account in November of 2017. It was not easy. When I first started my blog, Facebook generated 90% of the traffic. Now after years my traffic is generated from the search engines.

On a more personal note, I never used Facebook to remind me of my close friends birthdays. They are in my calendar on my phone and backed up to the clouds. My account had over 1,500 friends and honestly I knew maybe three hundred of them. And of those 300 I would call 30 my friends. Facebook has very cleverly changed what are understanding of friends had been through the centuries. I have read article upon article about how Facebook uses and did this very much by Design our need to be liked. So each time somebody gets a like it sends endorphins into their brain and they get just a little more hooked. I like myself, maybe that’s narcissistic but I don’t think so. I truly believe you need to like yourself before you can know how to like others.

And as far as far definition of what a friend is here goes. When I was a little kid my dad told me a story that his dad told them and that he told me his dad had been told by his dad and that it went down Generations. A boy lives on a small village. He is asked about his father when he reaches his teens how many friends does he had. The boy responds I have so many I can’t count them. He asked his father how he had so few friends. His father responded friends are not just people you know but people who actually care deeply about you. He told his son to go and kill a lamb, yes I hate this part but it is somewhat biblical, and put it into a burlap bag. Go to your friends all of those friends that you said you had and tell them you have just killed a man and can they help you. The ones who don’t slam the door on your face are your friends. I’m not telling you that they’re going to go and help you with your crime by hiding the fact that you did it but rather help you through this horrible thing you had done. That’s what a friend is.

Can we really truly say that all of those people that’s what we now have as so-called friends on Facebook who do that for us, I don’t have to think about this my answer is no.

So if you want to follow what I did there are some simple steps. Find out which of your friends birthdays are important to you and put them in your calendar. Make sure you have all of those friends contact information. Then go to the Facebook help area and ask how to deactivate your account. Depending on your platform and the vice they will be different. They will try to tug at your heartstrings at this point. Don’t let them. And then they will ask why you’re doing this. And this is important because there are 15 reasons but the important one you should check is other. And explain in your own words how upset you are at them for having allowed another country to meddle in other countries elections. They have a responsibility to their 2 billion users and they are failing miserably at it. Congressional leaders last week came out of hearings with Facebook and in a bipartisan scream that’s Facebook transparency and gave them ways of fixing what Facebook does. I have a simple way to stop at least some of what Russian does. Don’t accept rubles for political ads in another country. I don’t think that’s takes a rocket scientist to figure out. And I think Russia has a few rocket scientist on hand. And yes, Russia will find ways around this but that’s what they have something called algorithms add Facebook to circumvent.

Facebook will never change unless we force them to. I have a feeling that 2016 once a dress rehearsal for how Mark Zuckerberg plans to become president and either 2020 or 2024 depending on the political winds. That might seem harsh but think about it. You don’t see Google doing what Facebook did. First Google is a search engine and yes they have a duty to remove news that is false and opinions that are inappropriate but that’s not what Facebook is. Twitter gets literally hundreds of millions of tweets each day and again that’s not what Facebook does. I am not saying that Google and Twitter are without blame but to me in comparison with what Facebook did it’s something that they have announced they will fix and I believe them. And also neither Twitter on Google has a name like Mark Zuckerberg that everyone knows as their founders. Yes some people know who started Google and Twitter but it’s not as universal as Mark Zuckerberg.

Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal are talking to one reporter: Anderson Cooper – The Washington Post

Talk about “Must See TV”! Tonight on CNN and Sunday on CBS Anderson Cooper is going to make the private residence of the White House not a fun place to be. I know this is all very salacious but he is the president and he did it allegedly right after marrying his wife and her having their baby. That’s reptilian.

Anderson Cooper knows how to ask questions and get right to your soul so I know that this is going to be fascinating to watch.

Maryland Gov Hogan(R) To Consider Voting For Someone Else If Trump Gets Nomination«CBS

I think we all know who that other person will be. He’s a shrewd politician with a 61% approval rating in Maryland. And this is one of the many people that have said this or members of the Republican Party. I congratulate him on his good sense.

The Good Wife Cancelled After 7 Seasons By CBS

This reminds me of the time I heard that Sex in the City was going to be cancelled. I was sad to hear the news but also knew that it’s was coming any time. This last season of shows although still entertaining have made you need to release all belief in reality. The storyline of her husband running for president was absurd.
The Good Wife TV show we will be remembered for having more famous people saying they watch it. I will miss it but always have the memories. By the way, 7 seasons is the magic number for syndication. The cast and creative team will be making money for a long time.

Tune-in this Sunday (3/29) to the esteemed weekly news program “60 Minutes” on CBS for an in-depth segment (part one of a two-part series) on potential new treatments for glioblastoma multiforme.

The segment will follow brain cancer patients in a Duke University clinical trial of a therapy that uses a re-engineered polio virus to kill cancer cells. CBS Evening News anchor, and “60 Minutes” corespondent, Scott Pelley will report on this promising experimental treatment given to 22 glioblastoma patients.

Playing a key role in the episode will be Dr. Darell Bigner, Director of the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Institute at Duke University and Leader of the Neuro-Oncology Program of the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Dr. Bigner was the 2014 recipient of the National Brain Tumor Society’s Feldman Founders Award for his decades of outstanding contributions and invaluable impact on the field of brain tumor research. You can watch Dr. Bigner’s acceptance speech here. Dr. Bigner is also a member of the National Brain Tumor Society’s Strategic Scientific Advisory Council for our Defeat GBM Research Collaborative.
