.. the LGBT community has no right to blackmail or boycott Facebook . if they did , they would create an enormous backlash in sympathy to them …

… It Figures !! [#facebook][#twitter][#anti conservative bias]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,May 20th,2016

.. you never see much of conservative news sites on Facebook ‘ s ” Trending News . ” No I understand why ..

.. the higher – ups at Facebook have been playing fast and cute with their news feed , deliberately not featuring conservative news sites [such as the Drudge Report] on its news feed . Normally , sites that do generate that kind of significant traffic show up on that new s feed . But conservative sites ? You hardly ever see them ..

… What in the Hell is Facebook Thinking ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 10th,2014

.. Facebook is normally fairly open – minded ..

.. believe you me , I have gotten away with a pretty fair bit [wink! wink!] …

.. but , I came across this , and I nearly threw up on my laptop ‘ s keyboard …

.. Facebook allowed , even for a period of days , a Facebook page dedicated to “Death to Zionst baby Killer Israeli Jews . ” Yes , that is the title of page , folks , believe it or not …

.. I have seen some stuff censored [conservative and liberal , religious and non – religious] on Facebook , stuff that would be very highly questionable to be taken down . Yet other  stuff is allowed . But this ? give me a break ….

.. [h/t — WashingtonExaminer]..
.. [link] to the article ..

.. there were plenty of complaints , believe you me . Mine would have been one of them HAD I come across this news , and this , this page ..

.. Facebook has now finally removed the page . That is not the point . The problem is that Facebook allowed the page in the first place . How sick of a thought was that .

.. to the complaints , Facebook [until the removal] responded with this mealy mouthed statement : (seen below) …

facebook community standards (israel)

.. what I wonder is this ? What were you people thinking ? The decency , the morality , and the disgrace of this is a black mark on Facebook …

.. a big thank You to Phil Klein at the WashingtonExaminer for revealing the  news of this  filth …

… Facebook did What ?!?![#anti-semitic fb page]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 6th,2014

.. Facebook puts up with a lot .

.. I know that I have gotten away with a lot , to say the least ..

.. but , to allow an anti – semitic Facebook page ?!?!? Especially one that encourages the open targeting and murder of Jews ?!?! You have to be kidding ! ….

.. [h/t — WashingtonExaminer]..
.. [link] to the news story ..

.. the fact that Facebook finally took down the Web Page is immaterial to me . The problem is that Facebook is supposed to have ” community standards . ” I have seen stuff censored [conservative and liberal] alike that has left my head scratching . anyone who knows me knows that I keep my hair cut extra extra short , so , I cannot scratch too much ….

.. the title of the FB  page was ” Death to  Zionst Baby Killer  Jews . ” Boy , did people complain . I sure would have ,  if I had known about the damn thing . So what was Facebook ‘ s initial response ?? Something  mealy mouthed , such  as this :

facebook community standards (israel)


… and they allowed this stuff , even for a short time ? What the hell were they thinking ?? …

… the Lesbian Waitress Got Her Just Desserts …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,December 10th,2013

.. she got canned .

.. and she deserved it .

.. [link] to the local news coverage of the story …

.. [h/t — theNewYorkPost ,]

.. Dayna Morales , 22 , an ex – Marine , was fired this weekend for perpetrating a fraud on the public . She lied to the public , the American people , and to her employer about a family failing to leave a tip , and also about leaving a so – called ” bigoted ” message on the receipt .

.. Well , guess what ? She got caught . The family in question contacted the media , blew the whistle , and produced the evidence to prove that she did get a generous tip , and that there was no message of any kind on the receipt .

.. Busted .

… “Amnesty” and English …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,July 1st,2013

.. This immigration reform attempts to dissolve the melting pot .

.. Backers of the immigration bill under consideration in the Senate say the legislation encourages illegal aliens to learn English, but that’s apparently not so . They’ve been running ads on conservative talk radio programs insisting that the illegals “must learn English” as a condition of legalization.

.. It figures .

.. The usual suspects, including a group called Americans for a Conservative Direction, backed by establishment Republicans and liberal Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, are peddling this dubious claim. Most backers of immigration reform have opposed efforts to designate English as the official language. These include POTUS . Earlier this month he used his weekly radio address to claim the immigration reform bill “would provide a pathway to earned citizenship for the 11 million individuals who are in this country illegally — a pathway that includes passing a background check, learning English, paying taxes and a penalty.”

..  We are sure he is serious about the “tax” part, but as Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle notes, immigrants are supposed to learn English already under the Immigration and Nationality Act. The Gang of Eight bill actually waters down existing requirements by allowing illegals to qualify for “learning English” status if they sign up for a course , regardless of whether they actually take it. Even if the Gang were serious about the language requirement, it poses a serious  logistical challenge.

.. These people are not all coming from Mexico , from Central America , or from the rest of Latin America . These migrants who might get the proposed amnesty are from

all over the world . That mean language instruction for more than just Spanish speakers , folks . Bringing the entire set of illegals up to fluency in English would require the hiring of thousands of teachers of English as a second language at a cost of millions of dollars.

.. We are a cultural melting pot , merging the best (and , it seems , the worst) of our cultures ., into  one . We are of many faiths , but of one  common language , American English.  It may require a great deal of expense , at first . But , you go the extra mile  , to bring people in from the cold . You help  them to acclimatte  , but voluntarily ., not by force . We all speak our  native tongues , if they are not American English . But we all speak one in  common  . It is not just decency , but dignity  . It is acclimation and cultural fluency  as well as linguistic fuency .

.. The fatal flaw in the Gang of Eight plan is, in fact, its lack of anything encouraging unity; assimilation is an afterthought. Any real reform of the immigration system must take us back to the day we welcomed immigrants and encouraged them to learn our language , our history , our traditions , and our  culture , so they could become independent Americans, rather than wards dependent on the state.
