Attention Deficit Disorder

Facebook Login

FacebookWhen I was in Marine Corps boot camp, it was a frequent occurrence to punish the entire group for the offenses of an individual. It made sense there. We were a unit. When one part of the unit messed up, it was a problem for the whole unit. On facebook, however, this is not the case. We are a collection of individuals, as is evidenced by the fact that facebook reminds you "if you do not know this person, do not click add" every time you go to add a friend. So why the heck is facebook punishing everyone because some people do stupid stuff?

I'm talking, of course, about the security feature that locks down your account and makes you go through some security measures if you try to access your account in a way that you don't typically access it. Since I have abandon my AT&T air card and opted for wi fi, I find myself having to complete this nonsense on a regular basis.

Now I understand that some people click on links and enter there passwords when prompted without making sure they are on a facebook page. I understand that others give their passwords to people they shouldn't trust with such information. I know that one well, since I'm one of the people that shouldn't be trusted with that info but often is, ain't that right Margarita? ;)

But on the serious level, why do those of us who protect our info have to jump through these hoops to protect those who don't? In my case, this is particularly pointless because my laptop stays in my truck. Hence, if someone stole it and tried to log in on my facebook account, this means they broke into my truck and they probably have my cell phone too and can easily get in anyway. Hence, the system is not completely fool proof, it's just sorta fool proof. Perhaps if you're only Joe Biden fool it works, but if you're Rosie O'Donut fool it won't.

Well I say, forget it all, fool. Don't punish everyone for the sake of people who don't protect their info. I'm sure facebook has good intentions, but it is still annoying. And, btw, let me save some of the problem people some effort here. No need to comment and defend facebook and call me a mean spirited jerk. I already know about the latter, and I'm sure facebook won't change the former. But this wasn't entirely a waste of effort. I needed to do something to pass the time while I logged back into my $#&@!* facebook account.


Hot off the press.

  • Watered Down Travel Ban

    Watered Down Travel Ban

    I have some friends and family who supported President Trump from early on in the process. From time to time they will ask me when I will admit that I was wrong about him. "If Trump does x... If Trump gets y... If Trump supports a policy that results in z... will you admit that you were wrong?" My answer is always "no", because I wasn't wrong. To be clear, I could be wrong in practical application, but that isn't what an election is about. Elections are about theory and speculation and, generally speaking about judging records. Trump had no record to speak of, and his history of stances on issues was all over the map. I opposed his candidacy for several major reasons, all of which are proven valid in this single issue we now refer to as the "travel ban". Here were my reasons.

  • Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    If you're not familiar with Justice with Judge Jeanine, it is a show on the FOX News Network starring Jeanine Pirro. She is known for her over-the-top rants where she serves up gobs of fresh red meat for her largely hard right wing audience. While it's not unusual for her to be a little fast and loose with the facts, she has been known to occasionally return from the break with a correction from her producers. Last night, however, there was no such correction to an outright lie she told on the show, and the matter being discussed should have (at the very least) contained a disclaimer from the host. I would cut her some slack, but as a former prosecutor and judge, she should be well aware of what proper protocol should have been here.

  • Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    It's not cute anymore, Republicans. The President of the United States is completely detached from reality, and you can't fix that. You can't cover it up, you can't explain it away, and let me make this as clear as I possibly can for you. You cannot possibly undo the damage you are doing to the party brand by trying to pretend this man is anything other than completely unhinged. I'm watching Sean Hannity borrow guests from the Alex Jones show in an attempt to bolster Trump's conspiratorial claims. I'm seeing relatively mainstream conservatives make themselves look like the crazed fringes of the paranoid right wing. Don't believe me? Look at this.
