GoFundMe for Assassination?

Is there one?

I’d contribute to any that said they’d shoot – and kill – Mark Zuckerberg

I’d contribute to any that said they’d shoot – and kill – Donald J Trump

Facebook will let Trump run ads on election night prematurely claiming victory

Both should die and the planet would be a much better place.

Seriously – if you use facebook or instagram STOP. Life does exist without them.

And if you vote Republican, grab that gun you so lovingly own, stick it in your mouth and pull the trigger. TIA

The US Tech Antitrust bollocks

Google
– know everything you click and sell that data to anyone. Google do everything they can, including changing web standards, to track you.

Facebook
– know everything you click and sell that data to anyone. Zuckerberg is a fucking lizard and they try to embed their tracking pixels everywhere.

Apple
– know what you do on their devices and do NOT sell that data to anyone. Using Apple products is optional.

Amazon
– know what you buy on their site, know what you look at on their site and do NOT sell that data to anyone. Using Amazon is optional.

Compare the first two to the last two

Pichai and Zuckerberg make their money – LOTS of money – through exploitation and data selling

Bezos and Cook do not

Why can I figure this out this distinction yet American senators cannot?

USA? WTF??

MAGA!

The orange fuckwit the USA elected gets worse.

“It is my great honor to declare Sunday, March 15th as a National Day of Prayer,” Trump tweeted Friday. “We are a Country that, throughout our history, has looked to God for protection and strength in times like these.”

“No matter where you may be, I encourage you to turn towards prayer in an act of faith. Together, we will easily PREVAIL!” Trump wrote in a follow-up tweet.

There are two things that need to happen to help the USA
1. Shoot Donald Trump
2. Shoot Mike Pence
Removing them would (1) teach their successor a valuable lesson (2) get rational people back in charge.

“Can I get”

I heard this several times in Orlando recently and it irritated the fuck out of me there.

On the plane back I was in the aisle seat and this american woman – who redefined “scarfing” by the way she inhaled a huge sandwich – said to one of the crew “Can I get a water”. Given her previous interrogations I would not have been surprised if she had said “Can I get a vegan water”

“Can I get”

In the hotel bar people would say “Can I get a JD and coke” or “Can I get a beer” or other such stuff.

It was never ever a question despite the phrasing. The intonation was all wrong.

It was a demand.

And I heard this damned phrase in the pub earlier.

The answer will always No. NO

Why?

Because the demander cannot actually “get” what they want.
The passenger next to me could not get up, move around me and get their water.
The people at bars cannot “get” what they want.

So stop using such demanding demeaning language.

ASK

“May I have a water please?”

“Pint of Stella please”

“G&T please”

You are not now demanding, you are asking. That is not just correct because you cannot get it yourself, but it is correct because the staff can refuse you. And it is correct because it’s called being polite.

And if you are reading this and thinking “I could care less about what you say” then please…. get educated.
