From Reuters here:
(Reuters) – Four major U.S. public funds that hold shares in Facebook Inc on Wednesday proposed removing Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg as chairman following several high-profile scandals and said they hoped to gain backing from larger asset managers.
Zuckerberg has full control over his giant (and slowly dying) spying machine but the symbolism of public pension funds calling for the Boy Wonder to step down is awesome.
Zuckerberg has been peddling bullshit and propaganda to cover up his managerial incompetence which he refuses to address.
Gone are the days when Facebook was going to connect everybody in the world to his giant octopus advertising machine. Now it’s about Facebook’s survival as users turn on his bullshit (especially the youth!) and social media elsewhere.
From the Intercept here:
According to sources and confidential Google documents, the search engine for China, codenamed Dragonfly, was designed to comply with the strict censorship regime imposed by China’s ruling Communist Party. It would restrict people’s access to broad categories of information, blacklisting phrases like “human rights,” “student protest,” and “Nobel Prize.”
The Chinese platform was designed to link people’s searches to their phone number, track their location, and then share that data with a Chinese partner company. This would make it easy to track individual users’ searches, raising concerns that any person in China using Google to seek out information banned by the government could be at risk of interrogation or detention if security agencies were to obtain copies of their search records.
Let freedom ring and let information flow freely as was the original promise of the internet!
And let people use the internet to empower themselves and improve their lives!
Except not people in China who use what Google is building.
It is impressive how quickly Google has devolved into a high earning, unethical corporate piece of shit.
“We all have paid residential tax rates in this neighborhood. They come in with corporations, give them huge tax benefits, and screw everyone else who lives here and the water supply,” said Marci Brunner, a leader of the Birchwood Association with her husband Adam. “We are trying to protect the environment and the quality of life, not just for us but everyone in Schodack and the local areas that will be impacted by this.”
Let the Bald Vampire build his evil nest full of Chinese shit and crap somewhere else or better yet don’t build it at all.
From a twat by Ari Rabin-Havt on the twatter:
Brett Kavanaugh celebrated his confirmation last night at a party at the home of Facebook’s top lobbyist.
Google is one of the Federalist Society’s largest donors.
Hat tip to my friend Daniel.
Everywhere you turn these days you see King of the Tech Assholes, Sir Mark Zuckerberg.
Headline from CNBC:
Amazon’s hourly workers lose monthly bonuses and stock awards as minimum wage increases
Ah, this didn’t come out at the same time as the wage increase, he slipped it in a few days later. A PR genius.
Do Amazon workers get ahead with higher wages but no monthly bonuses and stock awards? My guess is they stay the same or lose ground cuz the Bald Vampire always wins.
From the Guardian here:
Lynn Gooch, a 57-year-old speech pathologist from Wheeling, West Virginia, was wearing a Qanon shirt, a reference to an online conspiracy theory popular with Trump supporters. She suggested Ford might be “under some kind of MK Ultra thing”.
MK-Ultra was a CIA project in the 1950s and 1960s that, for interrogation purposes, tested drugs such as LSD.
Ms. Gooch should get her head out of her stinky cooch and not educate herself on crazy ass reddit conspiracy subforums.
Theorizing that Ms. Blasey Ford is some sort of CIA zombie from a program that occurred before she was born is the sign of someone fucked in the head.
I care about you, maam. You gotta have a strong cup of coffee and duct tape your shit together.

Facebook says 50m user accounts affected by security breach
Zuckerberg’s spying machine is a far greater ill for society than Musk, his pot smoking, random Twitter blathering, and his electric cars.
Musk is not the greatest, but Jesus he’s got nothing on the Zuck.
