Zuck and Trump
Zuck met with Trump about a year ago. This might be a result of that meeting. From the coverage of that meeting, it feels like Zuck is really on the Trump side of things. So with that in mind, is any of this latest surprising?

Overall, this is pretty sad and scary state of affairs and not the first time this has happened nor probably the last.
The guy at the top hasn't said much to calm people down it seems. Mostly the opposite with his silence except to scream about his enemies and the fire and fury he'll bring down which will do the opposite of opening dialog.
I note that Zuck doesn't seem to care what goes up on FB as long he makes profit. So read into that what you want in order of things going on.
As for the rest of us, i hope we stay safe and try to calm things as best we can. Yes, there's outrage at what's happened not only to George Flyod but others not only black but just about any race other than white. Those stirring the pot have their own agendas and many of those are not about peace but destruction.
So, if it's the older population that dies then there goes the Congress, the Supreme Court, and much of the Executive branch including the guy at the top. Not to mention many of the top corporate guys.
Unless this the result of younger operatives in the party, someone didn't think this through. Or did I read your post wrong?
Did someone contradict the shite he spouts? So not fair!
It kind of hard to contradict that much crap because there's so much of it spewed. His average Tweet Storm takes about 2 day for the press to analyze and rebuke it. If he'd spend the time doing his job instead of watching Fox and spewing, things might actually be better.
I don't see things changing but only getting worse. Various shrinks and psychologists seem to think he's into dementia, paranoia, and mental degradation. Seems like that might be true having had a family member hit by those issues.
With his killing of treaties, and general belligerence I hope that who ever has the launch codes won't give them to him.
Why would squids or any other variety of aliens want to invade a planet overpopulated with 7 plus billion cantankerous entities who appear to be completely lacking in any useful skills and utterly unable to manage their own affairs? Nothing good could possibly result from such an invasion.
Food! We tasty with crunchy bits (ketchup optional).
Health and Safety officials would have a heart attack at the mere idea these days; I'm not even sure how he got away with it back then!
We have to remember that back then Darwin's Law was still permitted. So, model rockets, bicycles without helments, kids going off the local woods without adults, and other stuff that today would be cause for police action. Have to think of the children, right?
When I met this machine, most of the card bracket had been sawed out, and the cards held in with wood screws and hot melt glue!
I ran into a few like this,. The one that was really borked had the metal shavings and filing debris from the chassis mod left inside and everything inside was coated with metal bits. From the damage and soot, I daresay the flames and sparks must have been spectacular.
So, we're afraid to blame the educational system for failing to educate people enough to make things like this not a problem?Too long to copy the rest.
You are correct in this. Critical thinking went away starting in early 70's with the teacher's union deciding we needed more sheeple, less independence, etc. We are now reaping what has been sown. And since Darwin or really hardly any science is being taught, his law is running amok in the population.
As an American, I fear for the Republic and the Constitution. Both are under attack by both parties.
Seems that no one is following the money both where it's coming from and where it's going to. So far, no one has said who is buying and no one has said who get's the cash from the sale. I have a feeling that the board of ICANN will make some serious pocket change from this deal.
I'm getting on average, 3 phone calls a day that are probably fraudulent and the number of spam mails telling me how to get the government money, shopping deals, etc. has really jumped.
It would all stop if a) People didn't answer their phones for unknown callers and b) examine the sending addy of all email unless you know who it's from. I guess the dumbing down of folks is well in progress since critical thinking or even logic isn't taught anymore.
Or rotating stations... no need for sci-fi.
I was hoping someone would remember those. For "reasons" the space boffins seemed to have abandoned that idea. Though I wouldn't be surprised if in a few years/decades some boffins says "let's try this big spinning station".
Apollo 13 is a great metaphor to throw at short-sighted managers who want cut-and-dried solutions to basic problems and employ script-droids as admins.
Like those who insisted the Shuttle launch "on-time or else"? Sad situation when managers can override engineers. Luckily for Apollo, it was the engineers in charge.
