I don't mind that they have very different views on some topics, especially politics, than I have but I do get sick of the spam some people keep spreading without even considering that not everybody shares their views.

    Well, there is a San Tan Valley in Arizona, not far from Phoenix. It contains the San Tan Mountains, often simply referred to as the "San Tans". Makes sense to have the devil picture since it's hot as hell in the summer!

    I have a FB that is quite annoying but a classmate from HS. He has gone off the deep end and constantly needs attention. Hence this post:



    Snark Away...

    All my snark is reserved for pregnant women who complain about how "woe is me" difficult it is being pregnant and how they are "so over" being pregnant. There is a special division of snark for people like that.

    Oh God.



    Hmmmm ... I don't see Fox News or WorldNewsDaily on that list.

    Piss poor analogy. Radio and television stations can't transmit at any power or on any frequency they want to, and they can't broadcast porn or use the seven dirty words over the air. The type, size and location of signs are regulated in most communities.

    Add into the 1st amendment conversation that the USA is about 20th when it comes to freedom of the press.

    "Obama = communist/Nazi dictator" comparisons are starting to make their way into my feed.







    Are their leaders of every other country on the planet with universal health care and gun control all worse than Hitler too? Or, is it just our Muslim Kenyan-born "leader" Obama?


    I thought the "Bush is a Nazi" hyperbole was bad enough. This takes it to another level. When I see this shit, I defriend. It's not that I don't want to see messages that I disagree with in my feed, but this is just ridiculous, and outright offensive.

    Also, Hugo Chavez killed millions? Seriously?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    Share a few pics from Being Liberal on your time-line. Some of the nutsies will defriend you, too.

    What irritates me most is revisionist history in relation to guns... Private ownership of guns were completely banned under the Weimer Republic immediately following WWI. About a decade later, the law was slightly relaxed to a permitting system to own, sell or carry guns. The Nazi Weapon Law under Hitler completely deregulated rifles & shotguns. Here's the kicker though: it exempted certain groups from any gun regulation, particularly members of the Nazi Party, while expressly prohibiting other groups from owning them (your list of victimized groups during the Holocaust). Even if those groups were armed, it would not have made a damn bit of difference against the likes of the SS and Nazi war machine (just as it wouldn't now for all of the bluster about standing up to government tyranny). In fact, the Warsaw uprising proves this out.

    I have implemented a simple policy: compare any elected official or group of elected officials to Hitler/Stalin/Nazis/despots, you get at least hidden and probably deleted. Either side--I'm equal opportunity.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Likephishing. I'd love to post this, but fear being defriended by my more religious friends.



    So, instead, I'm trying this experiment.

    There's a couple of people who are friends of mine on Facebook that dated when I was in high school. I don't think they're Facebook friends with each other.

    There are her most recent posts.











    These are his more recent posts.

    Change the channel, please!

    It appears that my FB wall provides entertainment for several "dotty old lady" types (some are male) who have very few F-friends interacting with them. I've lowered them as far as I can without actually zapping them.

    In one instance, I shared preliminary info about a new "tour de city" bike ride to take place in June. DOL#1 replied, "I hope they send out a reminder before then." When I put this on the bicycle club message board, she followed me over there with a long scribe about how she can't remember when she has an appointment, can't remember that she might need to look at a calendar, etc. ad infinitum. Get this: she recently retired from a medical job. I believe she was a RN. That's right: she was taking care of sick people!

    Then there's the DOM who keeps trying to chat, misspells my first name (there is no "o" in it), keeps typing stuff like, "haven't seen you in a while," when we were both at a dance just the previous week.

    I've taken to just deleting the goofiest comments. FB presently uses an algorithm that ramps up engagement based on replies; if I suggest to #1 that she obtain a paper calendar and a writing implement, my posts are more likely to float on top of what she sees.

    Aaaauuuggghhhhh.....
