 Prison. Now.

Prison is the nice suggestion.

I'm perfectly good with the nasty suggestions as well, since we seem to have a lack of the use of the prison one.

NASA faked out a computer instead of running the test.
Then tried to launch and aborted instead of going "BOOOM!"
Did they abort the JABS after faking THOSE tests?

Anti-authority?? In the United States, WE THE PEOPLE are the authority...not those hacks that park themselves in DC to live off the taxpayer gravy train for decades.
I think people don't understand that at all. THEY are accountable to US not the other way around.

Actually think you've hit the nail on the head with this.
Most of those that would be flagged as 'Anti-authority' are no such thing.
They simply want honest, legitimate, functioning authority, which we so obviously currently do not have.

And even if they were truly 'anti-authority', they would also be using their *right of free speech* to advocate for a better, more responsive, less corrupt government.
It was specifically the intent of the Founders that the government could be criticized to whatever degree necessary right up to (and including) the point of rebellion for the formation of a NEW government.

Here's a sample of protected speech:
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,
and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form,
as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

F@#% Facebook!

I've recently become fascinated with Medieval European history. It seems there is a common theme among modern "scholars" which is:

Europeans in specific, and only Europeans, would routinely freak the fuck out for no reason and go on a wild bender and kill, torture, imprison, and expel people, just because they were different. It was all unjustified bigotry.

Well...when you look into it, they were (most of the time) remarkably rational and restrained. So called vigilante justice took place, not out of a miscarriage of justice that could not stand some form of judicial review, but that spaces were wide and the king's justice was not always at hand.

People were remarkably immobile, prior to the 20th Century. DNA testing shows that in England (and this holds in just about every European country), areas were dominated by extended families for centuries. Small communities were tight and outsiders were easily recognized. When outsiders tried to commit crimes or run a hustle, it was easy to see it for what it was.

Nowadays, it is far worse and we, as an obligation to the modern sense of justice, presume that history began at the point of infraction, and that reasonable suspicion (not in the current US legal sense) is du rigor misplaced justice.

This is most easily seen in feral Blacks wilding across the nation, and Whites merely retreat and hide, hoping the storm will pass them over.

Anyway...I'm on board with some Medieval justice on these corporate miscreants. Can they stay more than 400M from everyone that is pissed off at them?

Wasn't FB caught listening in to conversations of people who had the FB app installed on their phones a bunch of years ago?

Prediction: Neither the Democrats or Republicans will prosecute anyone for this. They may make some noise, maybe impose a fine them, but nobody of consequence will spend a single second in prison.

You only do this when you know you have all or enough of DC in your back pocket.

The spending must continue, until it can't.

They were indeed. It was around '15 or '16 as I recall. It was not clear to me if the FB app was listening to conversations held in the Messenger app or if they were able to listen in on actual phone conversations (which would be a flagrant violation of wire tap law). I think it was limited to the FB and Messenger apps. In any case, I've never had FB or any other social media on my phone because I use my phone only for conversations and for navigating while driving.

It's all in the mitochondria.

A group of friends started a private Fascistface page to discuss politics and keep the political banter off our main pages. One of the administrators of the page received an email notice from Fascistface the page was out of bounds on their rules. After some back and forth the page still exists and we post anything we want. I am sure we are all being tracked. I guess the FBI will show up at my house one day and arrest me for using my right of free speech.

It is a scary time in the USA. Most people haven't figured it out yet.

"I guess the FBI will show up at my house one day and arrest me for using my right of free speech." -

It depends. When they came to my house, my very first question:

"Am I under arrest?" - They said no, but had some questions about my social media activity. Now I'll admit, I follow all of my local, state, and federal politicians, and I'm caustic as hell with them (and just as bad in-person). In my case, it came down to context, which I outlined. I specifically asked them if context matters anymore - they verbatim stated: "You know better".

I think once they knew who I was, their approach changed dramatically (upper-middle class, married, kids in college, run a business, etc) - Not your "typical" domestic terrorist. They did know I had guns (and carry), but that was secondary. I think the way you write the "speech" is important, and they knew, that I knew, how to test the limits of so-called "free speech"

In the end, I talked to my attorney anyway. They think because that The FBI has been doing such a shit job, for so long, and people died because of it, that now they're going after everyone. Not an excuse to be sure, but that's the theory anyway.

If there were any doubts about how I think of our government, those were solidified after my experience.

There are good alternatives to WhatsApp, particularly Signal. Nobody should be on their platforms. I once had a cousin ask me to install WhatsApp to talk to her, I told her absolutely not.

Pretty good endorsement for signal, considering people there may very well wind up dead if their comms are compromised.

No app is perfect, but Signal does ok in my view.

Look into the folks who own the magor social media platforms and Amazon's of the world.
what do they have in common?
They are part of a Cabal that is not your friend.

Agree wholeheartedly here, just another reason why I left Facebook 2 years ago and have never regretted or looked back on that decision.

Problem is we will never find anyone, anywhere, willing to press those charges and make it happen so Facebook will continue to snoop and pry b/c no one is willing to stand up and do the right thing...

I believe it was due to having the Messenger app on the phone, it was 'listening' when it was open and it would 'record/send' everything entering the microphone.

Kind of like Amazon products...

The only app I had on my old phone, and it was for a brief time, was the app. When I moved away from an unlimited data plan and got a new phone (2016) it was no longer worth pushing my data limits. I only have native apps on my phone and some of those I have deleted.

I really wish someone would make a dumb phone with some type of touch screen or keyboard and not the typical number pad BS for texting. Service signal strength without all the 'smart' crap seems to be multiple times better.

The spending must continue, until it can't.
