  1. Words can be weapons! I only use the biggest bestest words & I'm a very stable genius! Guess who said these words of wit & you can win a free vacation to the Bahamas or "Mar A Lago Lap Dance & Tango Private Gentlemens Klub HeadQuarters" your choice!

  2. Real Story: And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.(Matthew 24:6-8) Media and politics wont save your souls in the end…Jesus is the ONLY one! Choose!!

  3. When the first motor vehicles were released (horse-less carriages) it was about 15 years before there were any rules around driving, let alone laws. Laws like licencing, road rules, what to do if there was a car accident, that kind of thing
    There's too much money involved now and the population is far too big to rein in data collection on a grand scale these days.

  4. A succesfull ceo floats off on a golden parachute before the fall.

    Leaving some dimwitted intern thinking he got the promotiom of his life.

  5. The internet was invented to destroy humanity and freedom and replace that with full beast system demonic control .The internet is disguised as unlimited knowledge, your phone is a beast system Telecom that tracs your every move..tracphone..so it makes it very easy for unseen evil forces to eliminate any resistance as they blackmail and brainwash the populace to become complacent beast system slaves. The wicked are harvesting souls and turning people into abominations to the Creator out of petty spite and jealousy.
    Everything has declined ..technology will be used for your extinction, even 99percent of Lucifer's kids will be exterminated by their own kind. They are not invited to the puppeteer pedophile party.
    Wolves eat other wolves in the demonic cycle of chaos.

  6. If Senator( whoever) would like to charge Zuckerberg with lying to the Public. I say ”Do it Now!” but since Wapo can publish over 20,000 from Trump and I will bet there are 100s that are about our non-existent privacy then let me add ”Ha, ha..” or LMAO.
