I rarely use my Facebook account except to post pictures for my family back in Florida to see and to view pictures from other family members across
the country and occasionally chat with them. I find Facebook to be really stupid the way the majority of people post every aspect of their lives on
the web for all to see, plus the fact that once somethings put online its nearly impossible to remove it.
However Thursday my uncle posted a link to a couple of articles about Obama and I decided to go on Obama Facebook page and see what Obama (actually
his minions) had posted on his page concerning these articles. The issues that I am speaking of are in the links below:
Obama partners with Mexico to increase foodstamp use
Ask your wedding guests to donate to Obama's campaign
instead of giving you wedding gifts
After reading these articles I decided to go onto Obama's Facebook page and post my feelings about how screwed up both of these ideas are. I posted
nothing that was disrespectful what so ever, even though if I had done so it is our right and duty to speak out with distain towards our elected
officials, we are after all their bosses and they work for us, hence we have the right to criticize them just as your employer has the right to speak
out when you have done wrong at work.
I simply stated that since Obama claims to be working for families and the middle class him trying to do something that will increase food stamp use
is an antithesis to his stated goal since having people dependent on government for one of their most basic necessities is in no way helping them.
I also stated that the very idea that newly married people, especially younger people just getting started in life should forego receiving items they
need to start their lives with their new spouse in order to finance Obama's campaign was greedy, arrogant, hypocritical and bordering on the type of
actions that royalty in used to do centuries ago when you had to give a tithe to the king when getting married. I stated that the idea of this shows
that Obama is only concerned with his agenda and staying in office at all costs, even the expense of those he is sworn to serve going without. I
stated that this idea of his further confirmed to me that he is a despot and a tyrant and has zero respect for the American people.
So I went to log into Facebook last night to post some pictures of a new oil rig I am working on and my Facebook account is "locked due to suspicious
activity". Not that I am too concerned about not being able to use my Facebook account, I can always just email pics to my family or go back to using
MySpace so they can view pics. Its the idea that it is very coincidental that this happened after the first and only time that I posted a comment on
Obama's Facebook page.I was not the only one posting negative comments on his page, I would say a good 50% of the posts were negative and critical of
him and his policies.
Perhaps this is the result of the new internet fairness policing policies or perhaps its just coincidence but I have never had an issue with my
Facebook account. Either way I am done with Facebook, not that I ever used it much anyway, but it is troubling that we are actually at a point in our
society that we are constantly being monitored by Big Brother.
Just wanted to share this with the ATS community and get your opinions.
