B Dear mod, please feel free to move this to wherever suits, but please don't delete the post. I truly need somewhere to share this info and I am
6 writing it just after it has happened, while I can.
4 So a long time acquaintance of mine on FB shares a post about Oprah or MObama being choices for next president.
R I respond by simply saying along the lines of "My vote would be no confidence. But given I know people always feel the need to choose, I will be
k hoping Michael (not a typo) gets it."
J Before posting, I had a weird feeling this could be the stupid post that puts me on the radar of those who monitor our lives, particularly our
J ones. I don't know why because I have posted many things I felt were bigger conspiracies, but my gut told me to be careful.
R So before clicking post, I googled around on the topic, as it has been many years since I looked into it and I wanted to see if there was any
D developments. What I found was the keywords I searched no longer return pages and pages of posts, photos and videos on the topics that I
E remember there being in the past.
0 I understand the internet changes and content gets removed, but this struck me as weird because I often look back on conspiracies that were
N passing and the info, including old posts I read years ago is usually still there.
D Despite my weird feelings, I decided to post anyway, after all it is 2020, who really cares about the gender of anyone else, transparency (no pun
g intended) is the only thing I personally care about.
4 Here is the weird part:
O Within 2 minutes of posting, someone responds asking me to cite sources. I check out the guy's profile and sure enough, he has military ties and has
D actually been running for congress. I decided to put together a post explaining the source is my eyes and I know that if I respond with a source, it
A will shortly be removed. Unfortunately, my post never made it. The post was removed, and the original poster, my long time acquaintance is no
2 longer visible on my friend's list, indicating he either didn't like my post (tissue?) or something at a higher level is blocking me.
N I don't want to share who this is with everyone, I don't want them to be harassed and I don't want to poke a bear.
T At the same time, I want to share because I believe in the truth and I really feel something bigger is going on here.
g I have never felt for a moment our social media had free speech.
= I just didn't think it would ever come to this.
What do we do when we can't even communicate freely anymore?
