To Delete, Or Not Delete

Really. I'm not.

Not to mention, it's become a stasi tool for Germany ' s Merkel. Didn't they have one of the best stasi agencies under Adolf Hitler, headquartered in East Berlin?

I beleive it was known as the Ministry for State Security. Sounds a little creepy when an agency uses the word SECURITY in anything. It usually means giving up your freedom.

Wasn't it Ben Franklin who said, "Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve either one..."?

Besides, it's pretty trendy for Americans to follow what the Europeans do. I mean we take on their fashion trends. Why not have some friendly-cute-social-network-place to spill your guts out and sell your books, your goods on? While you're at it, sell bits and pieces of your soul on it, too. It might make a nice profile on you.  They may even make it ambiguous. Then it could be used for the good of all. It's rather neighborly to keep everyone safe from some politically incorrect maniac. Right?

I believe, in the movie, Forrest Gump, the MC was quoted as saying, "Stupid is, is stupid does, sir."

Hey! That's reminds me. Didn't Zuckerberg call his first 1000 users 'dumb f.... for trusting him with their data...' Nice guy. You can read it for yourself at: theweek.co.uk/facebook/14625/are-users-dumb-fucks-for-trusting-data-to-facebook

I may just delete it.

Anyway, here's an article on Zuckerberg going yellow- bellied (there are other articles to go to in this one as well):

What do you think? Delete? Or not? Or am I just paranoid?

Hope all is well with everyone!

Hugs and chocolate!

  1. I don't think you should delete it. :( In the last 8 years it has started to feel like no one is allowed an opinion anymore.
    Why does it feel like the establishment in DC is trying to silence it's citizens?
    You speak the truth and offer links to back it up.

    1. I haven't decided yet. I may just open an entire new page.

  2. That's why I'm not on Facebook.
    As Gossip Girl said, no one is allowed an opinion anymore.

    1. Your opinion is a part of your profile that they will use against you one day if they need to.

  3. I'm surprised, given how many times I've reported bigots for their remarks and they've never, ever been sanctioned in any way.

    1. But they've come after you, Sir Wills, for your opinion.

  4. I have a facebook account but I don't use it much. I like my blog. That's where I'm most comfortable.

  5. Of course, I'm still on "Farcebook" to share the wonders of the blogging community and admire the profile updates.

    They can use anything they like against me. I just laugh in their faces.

    Take care and I hope you don't delete your account. We can take over Farcebook. Revolution time!

    Hugs and UK chocolate, your way,

    Gary :)

  6. People do get really irresponsible with their information when it comes to social media.

    1. They do. They even chase you so to speak and harrass you in messaging.

  7. The politics one can get into on facebook is crazy. I was unfriended because of liking one presidential candidate (although I'm not voting for this person), after knowing this person for years, have worked with him, etc. So, people take politics way too seriously. However, in saying this, I'm a bit sick of people not sticking to their guns and just saying what they mean/think, etc. because of political correctness. Social media can get a bit too crazy. That's why I limit myself and just get back to what I like doing, writing or other things, and what I need to do in my day.
    Chocolate hugs, m'dear!

    1. It's nice not having to worry about it, FaceBook, that is. I'm almost finished with book 1 to my series.

I'm dying to know what you think.
