– know everything you click and sell that data to anyone. Google do everything they can, including changing web standards, to track you.
– know everything you click and sell that data to anyone. Zuckerberg is a fucking lizard and they try to embed their tracking pixels everywhere.
– know what you do on their devices and do NOT sell that data to anyone. Using Apple products is optional.
– 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?
From an unrelated chat, I happened across this site: https://www.zerofasting.com/

But GOD sent this.
It is part of his ‘mysterious ways’
“Since the pilgrims can no longer come to us, we invite ourselves into their homes,” Sanctuary of Lourdes rector Olivier Ribadeau Dumas said.”
But surely GOD would protect the faithful?
“Vatican City is protecting the Pope from coronavirus, but keeping employees at work. Link“
Good fucking grief.
Stop believing in sky wizards and the obscenely rich paedophile loving Catholic church.
How much reality do you need to smash into your face before you realise that religion is a pathetic lie?

No, no I didn’t.
Because I’m not a fucking idiot.
If you have, then you are.
