I spend way too much time on Facebook, laughing at bad jokes, keeping up with fraternity brothers I have not seen in years and making new friends and sharing information with old ones. But I also spend too much time getting frustrated over fake information and angry about true information about folks that believe in things that go against everything I was raised to believe.
One of the most madding things are the so called “fact checkers” that contradict my opinions with their own opinions, not facts.
A good example is a meme I shared this week. It showed democrat vice president candidate Kamala Harris, in an interview, saying she was in favor of banning so called “assault weapons” and having a “mandatory” buyback program.
She wants to make law-abiding gun owners, about 15 million of us according to the New York Times, that own anything she calls an assault weapon, turn it in to the government for a small payment or be arrested.
The meme said democrat vice president candidate Kamala Harris is anti-gun and anti-2nd Amendment.
I was “fact checked” with the comments that Kamala Harris is not anti-gun and anti-2nd Amendment, she is in favor of “sensible gun laws.” The 2nd Amendment says a citizen’s right to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed.” But according to the “fact checkers,” taking guns away from citizens, by force, is “sensible.”
Factbook has every right to censor information and make false claims since they are a private company. But I still call them “Facistbook,” for their censorship
