Testimony in front of congress

By Heraclitusstudent following x   2018 Apr 10, 10:57am 695 views   33 comments   watch   sfw   quote     share    


The usual cinema, where congressmen can look mad at something, and the witness can apologize and act humbly, before everything goes back exactly as it was before.

Zucks will be chastised publicly, then the business of selling and buying private information without any accountability will go back normal, FB will continue to do what it does, and the NSA will also continue to read your data.
No laws will change.

"I just wanted to get rich off the backs of suckers. I really didn't want to hurt anybody, really. Can I go back to Hawaii to plink natives on my reservation, now?"

Though you never know. Maybe Zuck will lose it, start sweating heavily, take off his hoodie (the one with mission printed on the inside), and insult congressmen... mentioning all the money they took from him to let him do it.

I propose a new law of nature, to be named, perhaps not fairly, after Mark Zuckerberg:

Zuckerberg's law: Every commercial service on the internet will eventually turn to crap, or be discovered to have been crap all along.

It could just as easily have been called the AOL law or Steve Case's law, or Breitbart's law, or some other person that contributed to the decline of the quality of the internet. But Zuckerberg has a rare and very recognizable name, so he gets the honors.

I offered Zuckerberg the only response to any questions.
"You stupid Facefucks(Twitter trash),you publish your personal data,without a security guarantee,that can be spread without your knowledge.
Hey stupid Rep & Dem elected officials, why do you allow your socialist intelligent agencies to know every key strike one makes or to store every phone call?"

I'm in awe of the retardism of twitfaces.
Do you realize that your are Special Fools?
Your comments are so important to everyone on social media.
Laughing at you clowns!

Can't even half listen to this pablum. Blowing smoke up Zuckfuck's ass, while pretending they know anything about what they are speaking. Pretty obvious most of these turds have their staffer read their emails and "Use the Google" for them

I don't think anybody mentioned Facebook bending over backwards for the Obama Camp, who also used a quiz to gain access to data on thousands upon thousands of users. For which Obama was praised as being Tech Savvy in the Media.

We need net neutrality, but for Social Media, not ISPs.

These clowns act only want Net Neutrality so THEY don't get controlled by ISPs, but THEY can still control their user's content, collect data, and censor like crazy. See how that works? No censorship or fees for thee, but those are fine for me.

Yes, I think their hypocrisy is going to bite them on the ass later because it just so damn obvious.

Prediction: Trump will win again in 2020, but by a much larger margin, exactly because the public can clearly see that the press and the Democrats (same thing) have no interest in helping working class people, while Trump is taking active measures to stop the export of jobs and inflow of illegals.

You can blame that on easier access. Early days, you generally had to have money to own a computer and enough intelligence to use it. Now anyone with a phone has the internet and can even make a website. The internet was essentially a country club for geeks at one point (I don't mean that negatively). Now everyone's dumbass brother in law who struggles to keep a job, has 6 DUI's, farts at Thanksgiving dinner is now on the inter webs pissing all over everything.

Zuckerberg is just doing what any intelligent person would do in his position. Make a shitload of money while you can off the backs of idiots. This isn't MySpace. His empire is totally fine in my opinion. What the fuck competes with FB? 20% of the people do shit and get things done and 80% are suckers. He just took advantage of the suckers. It's kind of worked this way for a while now in the world.

I was looking the other day for an alternative internet. Kind of like Usenet/BBS used to be. Need to use the command line to access. ;)

I'm disappointed. I was expecting more righteousness while sheepishly and whorishly pimping ZuckFuck for campaign contributions while he was on the griddle.

The only one who asked cogent questions was, bizarrely enough, Count Chocula. Right off the bat he asked Zuckerberg if he considered Facebook a public forum, which is a legal term created in the Communications Decency Act. Zuckerberg was well prepped with a canned dodging answer.

If we had a decent Media, they'd pounce on this dishonest dodge.

If Zuckfuck just said "We're responsible for the content", as CEO he just opened the company up to every lawsuit imaginable based on what is uploaded to Facebook.

Not smart. But the public forum crap wouldn't survive the first serious test in the judiciary.

That blond woman in green sitting behind Zuck needs to be replaced with someone that know how to behave seriously on camera. If FB has any sense, she will NOT be there tomorrow.

The man on the left is a bit better, but he also has his moments.

"Thank you for appearing before our committee, Mr. ZuckFuck. Can I come down and plant a big wet kiss on your Brillo head? I can corn row that for you, if you want. That card I left in your lapel pocket is my campaign manager's direct number!"

In the 80s, Dems and the PMRC wanted to label Prince and AC/DC.
In the 2010s, Dems and Zuckerberg wanted to label "Fake News" and pro-Trump Comedians.

In the 90s, Dems would have flipped if President's Personal Attorney was raided by Federal Investigators.
In the 2010s, Dems are insisting home, hotel, and office raids of President's Personal Attorney on potential minor FEC violations (absolutely unheard of in US History) are A-OK.

The media handlers got rid of her (or moved her) and replaced her with two stern-looking persons, a woman and a man. The center dude stayed, and he has adopted also a more stern look, although he has now also adopted a nodding action when a "good" question is asked.

The theatrics of the whole thing is fascinating.

Zucky said he accepts full responsibility, and yet there are no consequences. Responsibility without consequences is meaningless. This is a common trend for the rich and powerful. They may on occasion stand up and say mea culpa, but they never actually pay anything resembling a price for their actions or inactions.

Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
