  1. “Facebook are cutting their nose to spite thier face-book!”
    All social chat forums reach a peak, then decline. Who uses ‘MySpace’ anymore?

    i hope theres enough motivation for some collective action for this sort of stuff. i’m getting sick of hearing Facebook’s opinion. maybe a mass boycott for a week, see how they like it. their really should be an annual facebook -fast

  3. Klaxon says:

    I’ve always wondered why people choose to use Facebook. You couldn’t pay me to use social networking. Mark Zuckerberg is a douchebag, Wall Street now owns it so why don’t people take their complants to Goldman Sachs? Wall Street doesn’t give a shit about 1st or 2nd Amendments. They just want your data. Facebook was introduced to me by a young man with no friends who had Aspeeger’s in 2007. The kid was a total flake. I knew to avoid Facebook then. Now, all the old women I meet use Facebook to spy on their grandchildren. Awesome.

    ““Be careful making about making political statements on facebook,” adding, “Facebook is about building relationships not a platform for your political viewpoint. Don’t antagonize your base. Be careful and congnizat (sic) of what you are preaching.”

    I have no idea wtf this means.

    most of these so called alternative media are working as agents for the establishment anyway, how cares, Max by association with AJ, I am not sure if you are comprised as well

    Interesting….. Certain words seem to have set alarm bells ringing on You Tube.
    Bowman, Bob, Gage, Richard, shutdown , facebook…. seem to have done the trick. Can anyone else confirm this by trying !

  8. karate kid says:

    the problom is dont question
    also people today lack the mental mind to distinguish illusion from reality

    lets face it face book is nothing more tha a tool of the gov to track and see who you are

    and i beleive people with facebook are looking for approval and lack the self esteem to be thier own master and just need approval of the mindless masses
    look at meee look at mmeeee
    losers with high school mentalitys

    sheepbook

    Digital age free speech in action. Where’s the first amendment when everyone is ‘living’ in a privately owned cyberspace or protesting on privately owned ‘community’ space?

    This is not a shock. There are certain types of people who are only nice when they want something…

    But once they get the upper hand…

    so what’s the problem? this is pay back from the obama for the petitions at the white house website.
    so far every word you have posted in this debate was an ends justfiy the means argument , why balk at this? you cant have expect free expresson to contnue much longer any how it is a standard progresson. it’s not like it has not happened befor. the hypocrisy around here is geting DEEP!

  14. kdt says:

    here’s a “stock tip” for you all , the feds are going to chanel the “freedom group” in to an”ethical take over” in wich the company will be split up and sold off to companies that the feds already control and they will then simply pay colt , remington and the rest not to sell guns to any one but the gooberment, probblem solved all it takes from there is to retool to new .cals of amunition incompatible with existing weapons in circulation , then clasify reloading supiles as “bomb making matrials” and in short order the american people are left with nothing but a wall trophy to go with the crossed swords and muskets on the opsit side of the den.

    how will they “chanel” the sale you ask? that answer tells you WHO exactly is runnng this donnybrook . the feds will simply TELL the banks not to lend to ANY ONE but there buyer , they can not refuse any more than the feds can prosecute them for there crimes.

    see sherbert throw the rule of law and all ethical thought out the window and you can sove any problem…………of corse history tells us that the result is a society that no one will put up with BUT HAY the ends shure DO justify the means dont they……………….

    now please some one poke as many holes in that theroy as possable …….. i dont want to be correct on this but it shure looks like there gong to try , cnn is floating the idea right this very moment in an oped piece.

    Most of these sites support 9/11 truth big time. Are there more false flags coming down the pike?

    One more reason to boycott Mark Z’s epic Failbook.

    All these American twits with their big guns and associated tiny penis syndrome. Get a penis extension, then maybe you can lose the big bangbang.

  19. OlympiaLogger says:

    Fear the government that fears your guns. They’re capable of anything. Like this forinstance.

    You gutless wonders do love your First Amendment, don’t you.
    WELL KISS IT GOODBYE.
    If the Second Amendment goes, they ALL GO!

    Now you know why we fight for the Second Amendment….. for YOU!

  20. User2323 says:

    The “hackers” of the 1990s would never do this. Too bad nothing about FB represents that old ethic, and insisting that they have some sort of “hacker culture” there just makes it that much more obvious that they don’t.

  21. Toby Parker says:

    You are all completely barking. Jesus Christ, you lot are mire frightening than the government. What a bunch of illiterate loons.

  22. Steven says:

    Just because communism failed in Russia and Eastern Europe does not mean it has become a myth and a legend from earlier times. It merely disguised itself and came home to Western Europe and the english speaking world to oppress , rob, enslave and slaughter as many as possible. They just need an excuse to initiate a new red terror and a new manifestation of satanic soviet power. To pull it off they need to grab the guns and get rid of physical cash and then those monsters will have everyone right where they want them. In a globalist slave state and death camp.

    Would you post your personal information and every one of your family members and contacts to a CIA/FBI/Interpol/Mossad Internet search, photo, and link site for their unlimited lawless use politically, militarily and commercially if it were FOR FREE?

    Well, that’s what hundreds of millions if not billions of people have done on Google and Facebook. Had telephone calls been available to corporations and bureaucracies prior to the Internet, the same politics would have arisen. A world in which your most private thoughts and activities, your business ideas and marketing efforts are surveilled, exploited and traded by insiders in the NWO where ‘the people’ are serfs and slaves and the Constitution is merely a shadow in the way of big concentrated bucks in the $Billions in the hands of a few.

    Free people all over the world have allowed their governments to empower corporations and criminal justice enforcement bureaucracies to operate lawlessly -from the dot.com boom when the Clinton/Gore administration declared no law on the Internet to this day.

    Facebook and Google take care of the ‘law’ part against ‘the people.’ And, who are the people? Anyone they don’t like -anything they don’t like.

    I’ll bet Freedom Works did not have their Facebook account blocked – even after Armey’s armed attempt to seize control and expel his enemies. Armey “walked into the group’s Capitol Hill offices with his wife, Susan, and an aide holstering a handgun at his waist.”

    WaPo reports that Freedom Works has 2.1 million members, nearly 4 million fans on Facebook. See lengthy article at

    Even if this is true, fuck facebook. it’s just some crappy pro corporate website. Anyone can build it, they’re not hard to code. It’s popularity comes from everyone choosing to use it, it’s not because it’s innovative or was first at anything. Of all the things people can do to support change, not using that damn website is the easiest. It’s not like it’s a necessary utility like the power company or water company. Do people really think a giant for-profit crony capitalist corporation is going to allow you to post anything you want? maxkeiser.com and rt.com are pretty much the only place i don’t get my posts deleted. I got kicked off the washingtonpost.com in only one posting for talking against dick cheney. How about everyone who really has to tell everyone about their farts every day go flock back myspace. That would be funny at least.
