Do you use Facebook?
King Zuckerberg, as some call him, must not be too fond of this country, and everything he does is proof of that, actions speak much louder than words.
I mean, Facebook has pretty much become the fourth branch of government in this country..
If something is said on Facebook, people take it as gospel.

Facebook decides what you can, and cannot see on it’s site.
Facebook decides which point of view is ok, and tells Conservative Americans to go pound sand.
Normally, this would all be ok. Facebook is a corporation after all, and they can decide what they allow on their site.
Problem is, Facebook is no longer just a company, they are pretty much an institution at this point. They have grown into something which is so much more than a business enterprise.
None of us trust them either!
Something has to be done about Zuckerberg, and about Facebook, and it looks to me like the day of reckoning may be soon for Zuckerberg and co.
Take a look:
Fox News reported:
A Facebook executive has been caught on tape sounding the alarm about how "powerful" the company has gotten and calling for the federal government to intervene and break up the tech giant.
Newly released recordings from the right-wing guerilla news outlet Project Veritas show Benny Thomas, Facebook's Global Planning Lead, speaking candidly with undercover journalists over the past several weeks.
"I work for a company that is doing a lot of damage in the world," Thomas is heard saying. "It's doing a lot of good, but it's doing a lot of damage."
"I mean, no king in history has been the ruler of two billion people, but Mark Zuckerberg is," Thomas said of Facebook's CEO. "And he's 36. That's too much for a 36-year-old ... You should not have power over two billion people. I just think that's wrong."
Politico had more on the Facebook anti-trust case:
Facebook is seeking to throw out federal antitrust suits by the FTC and state attorneys general, arguing that enforcers failed to show it has a monopoly and waited too long to challenge its acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp.
“You only have to look at your phone to know that the government’s assertion that Facebook monopolizes ‘personal social networking services’ doesn’t make sense,” said Christopher Sgro, a company spokesperson. “The government ignores these realities and attempts to rewrite history with its unprecedented lawsuit.”
He cited TikTok, Apple’s iMessage, Twitter, Snapchat, LinkedIn and Google’s YouTube as competitors to Facebook that wouldn’t fit into the government’s definition of social networking.
No monopoly here: In court filings Wednesday, Facebook took aim at how the FTC and states have defined its alleged monopoly — as a free social networking product. Defining the market in question is a key element of any antitrust case.
