Big (Quite Possibly Less Than Desirable) Changes Coming to Facebook?

Recently, I saw an article highlighting some possible changes that could be coming to Facebook —

The Admin ZoneUpcoming Facebook Changes by Lisa

H/T the Armed Equality Facebook page

Basically, where Facebook Groups are concerned, the Facebook admins and the robots that they task with doing most of the real work of determining whether or not everyone is playing nice are going to be placing a lot more responsibility onto group owners and admins to make sure that everyone plays nice.

Alternatives do exist. (My pages on these sites are linked to below.)

The 2020 DNC Presidential “Debates”

Filed under: entertainment, Humor, Media, Politics — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 3:28 PM (15:28)

For those of you who have been carefully watching the DNC-sponsored “debates” between various “presidential candidates,” trying to figure out which of them has the most “innovative” “solutions” to America’s “problems,” let me sum them all up for you with a picture —

As far as any of these . . . individuals . . . is concerned, your life, liberty, money, property, and pursuit(s) of happiness don’t belong to you at all.

NONE of these . . . persons . . . displays any evidence of caring about your individual rights, privileges or immunities in the slightest.

Rather, in their minds, your life, liberty, money, property, and pursuit(s) of happiness are theirs, to take away, to give to others, to use as they see fit, or to destroy, at their arbitrary and capricious whim.

In their minds, your individual rights, privileges or immunities aren’t yours at all in any way, but theirs, to be granted to you or taken away from you at their discretion.

In the end, tuning in to these cretins and idiots is a total waste of time, electricity, and bandwidth, in my opinion.
