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.
How much clearer can we be but to say that we are not the customers of Facebook we are the product that Facebook sells. There’s no other way around this and if you believe otherwise then you have been fooled by their marketing. Sure they have this feel good marketing campaign telling us how they’re going to go back to the way they used to be, is that going to be any better? The way they used to be was the way that got us Trump in the White House, that guy that sold to the highest bidder.
Do me a favor. Delete Facebook app from your phone. I’m not telling you to deactivate your Facebook I’m just telling you to delete it from your phone. Try it for a week. If at the end of the week you don’t feel better then put it back on and they cost you nothing because all you need to do is log back in. But I promise you you’re going to feel better and you’re going to see that Facebook is one of those things that we’ve gotten used to but we really don’t need. We did really well until 2004. Yes 2004 is when Facebook was just a little bit of an idea and Mark Zuckerberg mines. We did well and we survived so it’s time that we stop letting them have all of our information for free.
Today, the day after we found out about this, the largest mass shooting in American history, has been a day for trying to get our bearings. I was speaking to a friend of mine who is a frequent reader of this blog and I couldn’t give her the number of mass shootings that have happened in the United States this year. I knew that mass shootings were considered any shooting that has four or more victims. I wish I could have told Dyan that in fact there were three hundred and four this year. That’s more than one a day. And Samantha Bee as she always does takes this subject dissects and tells it like it is. She doesn’t care if she offends by saying that Republicans are making up for small penises by having guns. She doesn’t care if she offends, and neither do I because there are lives here and this is not about politics but about the lives. Did you know that the NRA was actually started as a gun safety organization. How did it work into this gigantic octopus holding guns and every one of its arms. Well you can thank Mr LaPierre and his maniacal group of henchmen.
