I find the blogger platform clunky to use, and aside from Sigb not many people comment.
I have been banned from FB a couple times lately so anything too spicy for the FB police will go in a subforum only available to registered members called "posts too spicy for FB censors" I can post the link and my regular network can see the post if they are logged into the forum by clicking on the link.
Topics too spicy for FB include topics like throwing commies from helicopters, dank memes, and 3D printed firearms.
Eventually once I get my internet connection unscrewed I will host my own server and website locally on a Raspberry pi computer.
For the last week or two Bosch Fawstin (of the Garland ISIS attack fame) Has been getting hammered online by a Pakistani lynch mob. Coinciding of course with Eid which brings out the crazy in Islam more than usual and the ritualistic human sacrifices by Moslems during Ramadan.
The sheer numbers of death threats in broken English from illiterate Pakis is amazing.
Facebook, has NOT taken down the death threats. I reported several and none were removed.
Furthermore the images of the so called art gallery showing the president getting decapitated like a Moslem sacrifice ritual was not taken down.
The blindfold is off and the bias/manipulation is there for all to see.
Facebook is dead.
I only stay on there now because of work and to work against Facebook from the inside. Finding alternate places to network.
Now usually I post to Facebook, but in light of the censorship, I will just post on my blog and put the links there.
I have also decided against buying more ads on Facebook to protest the election manipulation.
So the article is heavily one sided but this factoid jumped out at me. However in light that 90% of the population has zero logic skills the point was missed entirely. Even by the writer who masquerade opinion as fact.
The writer is also Indian... Probably h1B visa.
So If you extract these facts related to the article and omit the opinion and unrelated items in the article including tidbits that the island has a gold course now.
There are the relevant facts:
A half-century after being uprooted for a remote US naval base, these islanders are still fighting to return
But in a 1965 military deal with the United States, Britain detached Chagos before granting independence to Mauritius three years later. Renaming the islands the British Indian Ocean Territory, Britain forcibly expelled all the inhabitants from 1968 to 1973 and leased Diego Garcia to the U.S.
Aware of possible backlash, the allies agreed to portray the islanders as temporary workers. After the last residents had been banished, the State Department instructed officials to tell journalists that Diego Garcia “had no permanent native population.”
Chagos had been continuously inhabited since the 1780s, when enslaved Africans were brought there to work on colonial coconut plantations. The French were the first to claim the islands, in the early part of that century, before losing them to Britain after the Napoleonic Wars in 1814.
After slavery was abolished, indentured laborers from India followed. By the middle of the 20th century, the islanders had grown into a small but distinct community with their own language, a French-based creole.
So this really begs the question, How can some descendents brought over by the Europeans for work, and then removed by the Europeans be considered a native population to the island?
Second, how is that White Americans who have been in North America for 500 years not be considered natives at this point? My own descendants have been in the US since 1777 when forcibly used as a military conscript under the British and after remained in the new US.
By that same logic as the article, should I not have the same status as these so called Natives who have not even been on the island in over 50 years?
However we all know the reason. Things like this is forever a shifting definition and yet another example of the shameless hypocrisy of the left. Just remember the left wants you dead and memory erased.
Today I was banned from Facebook for 3 days. for posting a screenshot of the notification of my first ban.
So it got me to thinking.
Facebook and the NSA is simply unable to process and decrypt massive amounts of encrypted data. Even a modest encryption key would exceed the ability of Facebook to scan and use the information for social engineering, advertising, industrial espionage, etc.
So in light of this, I have a idea.
So far I have not found this but maybe it is there waiting to be used.
Imagine a browser plugin.
You type your post, then highlight the text, right click and in the menu there is a encrypt button.
the post gets changed to encrypted text and you post it.
Your friends have the same extension. The encrypted post has a header that identifies it is you. You have previously given the password separately to your friends. So only they can decrypt it.
They highlight the encrypted text, right click and it gets decrypted with the password stored on your computer. They header says this is Jeffs message. The browser sees that it is jeffs message and the password will be "qwerty" which is stored on your local computer.
There may even be a way to automate this in the browser so it is seamless.
As a example here is some encrypted text. Since there is no plugin you will have to copy and paste>>
