Facebook is totally jacked up!

Let me say this about that

facebook_waste

After a short time away from Facebook on a voluntary decision, because of it’s toxic and annoying quagmire of crap. I left Twitter a year or so ago for the same reason. I went back on Facebook to connect with my few friends that I do have online. I got a new profile using a throwaway email to avoid the endless emails on status. Then I used my cats pic as an ID photo. It was good for a few days. But for some reason I got locked out. And when I was asked for a photo to verify my account I did something silly and sent them a real photo of me.

You guessed it! They didn’t match! Apparently I am using a false ID and impersonating someone else. Really?! Frickin genius! So because of that I am locked and will probably not unlock it and if they are smart enough to figure out that the cat photo is not me then I will more than likely be deleting it. Again!

So … to my friends on Facebook, if you are looking for me don’t bother! I am not going back there again! I will be using WordPress to write and they will be accessible through my site.

“Hollywierd” continues to implode! Nice!

And black hole of revelations is now expanded to suck in other venues. Even the hallowed halls of the government establishments are being taken in!

But is it real?

Let me say this about that. As the black hole of fallout from the Harvey Weinstein accusations continues to expand into all the nooks and crannies of America I am both pleased and concerned at the same time.

The Pleased Part

I am pleased to see that with the “conversation”, as they say, started the seemingly endless train of accusations continues. And sadly it, for the most part, has been simply confirmation of the already “suspected” seedy undercurrent in both Hollywierd and government venues.

While the perpetrators are being called out one by one, the most entertaining sidebars are the comments from the perpetrators associates about how they knew about it and should have said or done something. Really?! All of a sudden you get a conscience. Good I guess. More likely simply covering their own asses by voicing faux concern. Unfortunately up to that point they are guilty of collusion. Just as bad!

While most of the accused initially feign innocence, they later fold as the facts pile up. Some others have even gone so far as to admit to the accusations and, in my opinion, sign their own professional death warrant. Good riddance!

A variety of repercussions have come to be. Offers have been rescinded, programing and/or tours cancelled, endorsements and sponsors bail outs just to name a few. And this hits these people right where it hurts the most. In the wallet. Not saying that their reputation is trashed but the money is what they cherish the most.

To those that are in public office the danger is also catastrophic. The seedy undercurrent of politics gets its much needed exposure. Not like we didn’t already get an up-close look in the Kennedy and Clinton scandals! Now political entities are being called out and having to do a political tap dance in an attempt to somehow play it down. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much.

An unpredictable but welcome movement to help “drain the swamp”!

This Is The Concerned Part

Some deserve it but some don’t

My concern is that just like every other hash tag de jour campaign[ #metoo ] there will be an immense piling on by “weaponized” individuals that, for whatever reason, have an ax to grind with someone. And feel the need to act on it. So a simple accusation, however false, will reverberate throughout the web quickly in the digital age. The damage will be substantial. Even if they are proven false the damage is done. Another note is that a large part of these allegations are in excess of 20 years! While I am not saying that they are in any way less traumatizing, it does make for a tough defense. Both intentional and effective.

And some of the allegations are inane, like having your backside touched during a group photo or placing a hand on the knee of someone during casual conversation, really throws the whole accusation scenario into a tailspin. Welcome to human interaction. Many of the actions accusations are far more egregious and are noteworthy. But some being presented now that the movement is in full swing are, in my opinion, highly questionable and suspect.

Blaspemy – fodder for conflict

By Ronald A. Lindsay Many countries, especially those with majority Muslim populations, still retain laws that impose harsh penalties for blasphemy. Pakistan, to cite just one such country, continues to have a number of blasphemy cases each year, often targeting religious minorities and sometimes resulting in death sentences. Even when blasphemy laws are not enforced […]

A great insight into the NFL

This article gives a nice inner look at the NFL along with a sprinkling of personal opinions.

The National Football League continued to dominate the Nielsen Social Content Ratings for the week of Oct. 2, but the Major League Baseball playoffs carved out a niche.

Professor Lisa A. Martin – You are one twisted MF!

Dr. Lisa A. Martin this goombah in the guise of U of M professor actually thought about this and then co-authored this piece. Basically you are doubling down on your support for Planned Parenthood Federation which are one of your “clients”.  And this same “gruesomeness” could be the exact fuel for the other side.It’s called a moral conscience!

 

From Campus Reform: A group of University of Michigan professors recently suggested that abortion providers should be more open about the “gruesomeness” of their jobs. Professor Lisa A. Martin, et al. published an article in the most recent issue of Social Science and Medicine, where they explain that abortion providers “self-censor” in order to avoid […]
