Fake News on Facebook?

Well it seems Mr Zuckerburg is now concerned that his creation, Facebook, May contain some fake news. He says he is now going to start getting rid of all the fake news. This after the last election had a LOT of popup news sites like mine. I am wondering if he will stop all fake news sites (like this one) or just the conservative news sites?

We have seen where Mr Z. and the owners of Twitter do not like the conservative side of things and deem it their mission to only have what they approve seen by the masses. Didn’t we learn anything from all the attacks on the right from the Main stream media?

Mr Z you have created this new media that will instantly make anyone, including me, a “jourlnalist.  Are you now prepared to stop all the people that have an opinion other than yours? This media you have created is one of the best ways for all of us to learn about free speech.

If you want to do anything , a suggestion. put out a statement that not all that you see on your medium is true. that the user is expected to excersize caution and check the feeds for the truth. Simple? Oh wait, you don’t want that. this would mean the users would actually have to think. And we can’t have millions of people actually using their brains, can we?

Well that’s how I see it anyway.  Your opinions may vary. But, do me a favor, and use your mind and double check everything.

Boy Are They In For A Surprise

I am sitting here watching the feeds that I watch on tv,fb,twitter et al. . And am thinking to myself after seeing everyone on the democratic side trying to tell Mr Trump how to do the job he is going to be doing. They are trying to get him to complete Mr Obama’s legacy and push their liberal agenda on him. Then thinking to myself, Boy are they going to be surprised when he does none of what they tell him to do and I am expecting them to cry like babies.  Gentlemen let me ask you this, let the current administration finnish, then let Mr Trump rise to the occasion, as he will. Right now I bet he is just sitting back listening to all these idiots and chuckeling.

Election aftermath

As I sit here watching all the news sources such as #cbs #abc #foxnews and facebook  and others, I am saddened by the lack of support they are giving the President-elect. They all seem to be saying what the protestors are, he is not my President. In the past the news had always supported the President-elect, going so far as to praise him for his win.  But not for this one, they continue to try to tear him down and berate him, and diss his policies and choices before he has even taken the office.

I am asking the news media to stand behind the person that has been elected and show these protestors to be what they are, paid thugs/crybabies which ever they may be.

It is time to either get behind the man or get out of the way and let him have a chance to do what he will do.  IF he then does something, that is the point you protest. Not protest just because you lost and are afraid of what might be.  What might be hasn’t happened yet. It is time to get together and stop the hate.
