Not at war! 👌
I’d posted a link to my 9/11 entry because I knew the Facebook mods weren’t about to let any talk of terrorism stand — wouldn’t want to trigger any supporters of radical Islam on September 11th, now would we?
But I wasn’t really expecting them to go after the comments. Not just mine, even:
A friend of mine left that response, and I’d gotten in the habit of taking screen shots after Facebook began its discriminatory campaign of forbidding Russian bots the freedom of visual expression. (Which is incredibly racist, by the way.)
I replied to my friend in two installments. I’ve gone ahead and spliced them together and inserted the urls as hyperlinks, rather than attachments:
Fewer religious duties would go a long way toward establishing an interplanetary market and make some of that Martian spirituality Bradbury and Heinlein waxed so fondly about accessible to the average middle-class Earthling.
Unfortunately, I do not see this happening any time soon. Those who promote the economics of Islamic mercantilism have successfully lobbied for a fatwa again Martian emigration, and recent polls have shown that there are still Christians who do not believe in space.
Which is a damned shame, considering that the Price Wars between the Jews and the Sith have made interplanetary travel cheaper than ever.
Not that this means anything to the Sikhs, because they never seem to make it past TSA. 🤷♀️
Oh, and from what I understand, the Buddhists have filed a class-action lawsuit against Science, alleging Science to be riddled with fat-shaming and ableist microaggressions.
As a cripple, I hope they win.
Facebook soon flagged all three comments for review, making them invisible, though it still showed that three comments had been left on the post. I checked my Facebook history, and all traces of my comments had been removed from there as well.
Fortunately, I never type anything lengthy directly into Facebook, but instead copy and paste from my Note app. So reposting would be fairly simple — or so I thought:
I eventually realized that in order to repost, I’d need to change a couple of punctuation marks.
After successfully reposting both comments, I followed up with a message to the Facebook mods:
I should note that the three original comments briefly reappeared this morning, only to be deleted a short time later. As of right now, my two reposts and one friendly invitation to social media censors remain untouched.
He got punched in the vagina. Again.
In honor of an hero: these
Pyongyang has accused Malyasian health officials of conspiring with their enemies to promote junk science “wordy of Jenny McCardy,” dismissing claims that VX was used to kill a North Korean citizen bearing a diplomatic passport (who was NOT a blood relative to any North Korean leader, past or present) as “absurd” and “irrogicar.”
“Crearry, dis man died from eating bad sherrfish,” reads an official statement released to the Chinese media Tuesday afternoon. The statement went on to add that the shellfish had most likely been imported into Southeast Asia from America.
The diplomat in question died on February 13th of this year, following an attack at a Malyasian airport terminal in which two women are alleged to have smeared an oily substance on his face that would later be identified as the deadly nerve agent VX. North Korea has adamently denied that VX could have been used in the attack or that the victim was Kim Jong Nam, eldest son of the late Kim Jong Il and brother to the regime’s current benevorent reader
