While we are being distracted, is the real tRump threat FaceBook?


Thoughts on this article about Brad Pascale the genius IT guy manipulating FB for the tRump campaign.

1. Yes, this is a major threat.

Our biggest social media platform is now part of the RNC messaging. How fucked is that?

5. You are brave.

I would like to, I hate FB & Zuckerberg, but I have so many friends and family that live thousands of miles away that I'd never or rarely hear from if I left this platform. It's where we planned our last family reunion and I got reunited with lots of family in Texas & Washington State. At my age I've already lost a majority of my dads' family and a good chunk of mom's as well, so this would feel like another loss and I'm just not ready for that.

2. Social media in general must be monitored...

Without vigilance, it could happen again. The problem is, of course, that the willfully ignorant are really dificult to teach, and what's needed is some serious education of the rubes.

4. The rubes are not interested, that's what makes them so. Just a mess. Nt
