… I wanted to try my hand at a political joke. But in reality, when it comes to politics, I’m just not all that funny. But one of my Facebook followers, Larry L. Tebo, is. (I’m encouraging him to join Ricochet where his wit will be better appreciated; on Facebook his cleverness goes over the […]

Okay, I surrender. I’ve lost count of how many sexual identification variations Facebook has (thank goodness I don’t use Facebook).  However, just now, my wife was trying to explain what “cisgender” is.  My brain exploded (sorry, no pictures of the carnage on Facebook). Preview Open

No, I’m not talking about the new 59th gender identity option “fill-in-the-blank”.  I’m talking about addressing the needs of the trans-species community. Facebook needs to have a species identity option.  For all too long, Facebook users have been unable to tell their fellow users just what species they identify themselves as. Preview Open

I’ve never been a fan of theirs so the thought of no Facebook doesn’t disturb me, but I have been maintaining the Ricochet Members group there and it is orphaned now. My intention was to provide a group where Ricochet members […]

What’s the proper role of politics on Facebook? How do you respond to friends’ political posts, and how do post on your own page?

I try not to inject politics into Facebook.  Facebook is really a marvel of the Internet Age.  I have gotten back in touch with people I never expected to be in touch with again.  Facebook is great for keeping in touch with family and friends, so I try to make it about that as much […]

Sometimes, the Progressive onslaught of FB posts gets to be enough that I have to say something. Today’s was a post from a very Progressive friend, sharing a picture from Occupy Democrats which read: 4/22/14: Canada surpasses the United States to become the world’s richest middle class, based on after tax income.

Has Anyone Told You Just How Evil Kickstarter Is? — Fredosphere

 

Barry Ritholtz of Bloomberg View wants you to know Kickstarter is evil—at least when corporations get into the act. Oculus, the virtual reality company recently bought by Facebook for a couple billion, received an infusion of $2.4 million early in its history thanks to a Kickstarter campaign. This kind of corporate funding became legal thanks to the JOBS Act of 2012.

Ritholtz does not like the JOBS Act:
