QUOTES TO PONDER: APRIL 4th

hippy“WHO KNOWS ONLY THEIR OWN GENERATION REMAINS ALWAYS A CHILD.” – That quote from George Norlin has multiple layers of meaning but to me it always brings to mind those self-infatuated fools from the 1960s generation who remain perpetual children.

I’m not referring to the truly talented and capable members of that generation who went on to many real-world accomplishments, but the worst, most shrill elements of that generation who – as stated above – remained perpetual children.

They distorted liberalism into a philosophy that was critical ONLY of the western world and distorted the educational system into a realm of prolonged adolescence. A realm in which they are perpetually self-righteous and immature, petulantly demanding agreement with their shallow, simple-minded views on complex issues.

(Notice how they have to keep going younger and younger to find unformed minds that actually agree with their juvenile attitudes. They’ll be pushing the vote for 13 year olds before you know it.) 

Even worse is the way they remade the educational system (LMAO) into nothing but a vehicle for browbeating their students into agreeing with every one of their increasingly outdated political opinions.   

“WE CAN’T TRUST FACEBOOK TO REGULATE ITSELF.” – This was said by a former Facebook manager who was among the many experienced figures coming forward in recent months regarding the mammoth abuses of Facebook aka the Confirmation Bias Community. Continue reading

FACEBOOK IS FAKEBOOK: NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS

Balladeer’s Blog

Welcome back to Balladeer’s Blog! As always I’m coming to you from a planet of 7.6 billion people, 10 billion blogs and about 20 billion political poses.

Okay, so I’m exaggerating a bit, but I genuinely feel that as many people as possible should dabble in blogging for at least a little while. It feels great to have an outlet for your creativity, even if you make it accessible only to people you know personally. 

Plus the more you get used to the ins and outs of how the internet actually works the more it helps you resist those instances of “artificial consensus” that generate spontaneously … or not so spontaneously, really.

Running a blog will give you access to an on-line dashboard which lets you see how many of the commenters who try to argue with you are really the same person using multiple fake names to make it look like a lot of people disagree with you. And that’s just ONE instance of the relentless fakery involved in internet communications, especially where controversial topics are concerned. 

For all the years I’ve been writing Balladeer’s Blog I’ve been telling people to stop letting themselves be fooled into thinking that a mob of people who disagree with their opinion just naturally materialize. Fanatics with no life, fakers pushing a particular agenda, sock puppets and programmed bots are often involved.

bloggingSuch obsessed loons spend most of their time filing complaints or hitting the “report abuse” button every time someone beats them in an argument. Such people also try to play with every word that is written by people they don’t agree with, just so they can pretend that splitting hairs over an irrelevant choice of wording means that the other person is “lying” or “wrong.”

“Discredited” and “debunked” are two other words that are misunderstood – intentionally or not – by ankle-biting little pricks who think they are great debaters but are really just barely adequate proof-readers.

POSTING A LINK to an article that these people feel supports their argument is NOT “proof” but too many people are easily intimidated and are bulldozed into believing that it is. The item the trolls have linked to can be picked apart using the same methods that the trolls themselves use.

Facebook in particular is a magnet for such hilariously pompous people. Twitter is at least as bad. Anyone looking for truly rigorous debates that are not ultimately rigged by dishonest people at those sites should seek out alternatives. Gab.ai is just one example. Continue reading

FAKEBOOK: THERE’S A REASON IT’S CALLED THAT

Sharyl Attkisson

America’s sole remaining journalist.

Sharyl Attkisson, the 21st Century Ida Tarbell, recently interviewed Data Analyst Kenneth Brown regarding his recent study that revealed how over roughly 60% of Fakebook Facebook’s posts trying to defend Obamacare are FRAUDULENT.

Brown’s study found that 226,000 Facebook posts pretending Obamacare worked were generated by just 40,000 profiles and behind those profiles he further narrowed activity down to just ONE HUNDRED PAID POSTERS.

The link is below but first some excerpts about how such phony “grassroots” online posts are done …  

” …by digital activists pretending to be regular people.

“Digital activists are paid employees; their purpose is to attack anyone who’s posting something contrary to the view the page owner wants expressed,” he told Attkisson. 

Brown: “Sixty percent of all the posts were made from 100 profiles, posting between the hours of 9 and 5 Pacific Time.”

Sharyl: “Which means what?”

Brown: “They were paid to post.” Continue reading
