    Good on Twitter but without Facebook its meaningless. Its sad how Social Media has even more turned democracy into a money game.

    Facebook have removed privacy from the profile search... or something like that. Everyone at work is up in arms about it.

    I suspect that Jack doesn't want to be in Elizabeth Warren's sights if she wins, she's pretty forthright about the issues around social media and political misinformation. Very much "your move, Zuck", pass the popcorn

    Orange Twerp seems to live by that motto from the 'Lethal Weapon 2' movie...

    "There's nothing wrong with racism... so long as you don't have hatred in your heart".

    Instead he seems to evoke hatred in others.

    Shame they don't ban you for saying orange twerp. Hate speech no? Ah right, only the left gets to decide what "hate speech" means on a week to week basis. LOL. If it isn't a death threat, it isn't hate speech, it's FREE SPEECH.
