Putin Stole My Facebook!


Zero Facebook referrals–count ’em!–over the past three days: how come?

Well, I’ve figured it out. Putin stole them.

I don’t know how he found the time to get at my blog, what with rigging a U.S. presidential election, rigging the Brexit vote against the globalists, and trying to rig Germany’s upcoming election so as to defeat Angela Merkel and her wildly popular immigration policy: but hey, like Rudi Vallee said in Unfaithfully Yours, if you want something done, get the busy man to do it. And you can’t go wrong, listening to Rudi Vallee.

See, I don’t want to be on the wrong side of history, so I have joined the movement to blame every shortcoming on the Russian boss. We all know, now, that Hillary Clinton would’ve had the White House in her pants suit pocket if Putin hadn’t fixed it otherwise. I have it on good authority that he also sabotaged the Edsel, the Byzantine Empire, and The Tim Conway Show. So it would’ve been a very small undertaking for him to zap my Facebook referrals.

I just don’t know what to do about it.

  1. Ha! Never thought of that. I have had stuff stolen lately, too, and I am forbidden to open some of the websites I always entered in the past.

  2. Hey, Lee
    thought you might like to know that for the last 2 months if I am on News with Views and click on your article I get a WARNING about your dangerous site and that I should not continue if I know what’s good for me (or words to that effect). I then have to find the teeny tiny sentence way at the bottom of the page that allows me to get to your article. It’s always worth the effort, though! Keep it up

    1. This has happened before: someone’s always trying to sabotage NWV. I am very thankful for your perseverance: they do make it hard for me to keep an audience.

    1. Now you’ve done it! You’ve made me cry . . . tears of joy. 🙂

      I actually see a lot of value in Facebook, but I think that it can be easily misused and frequently is. The one thing I don’t approve of is “friending” and “unfriending”. I think that having a binary declaration of friendship or un-friendship is not a good thing.

      Humans are creatures of the gray areas in life and there are a lot of people that I care about, even if they disagree with me or say something with which I disagree. One of the life lessons I had to learn involved reserving judgement when I saw something with which I did not agree and allowing time to work things out. Facebook, IMHO, operates in opposition to that way of thinking by having declared friends and un-friends.

    2. . . . and I see that as a good use of Facebook. It’s an interesting way to make announcements, communicate on various topics. My problem with Facebook is when people use it for matters that should be private.

      For example, if you are my friend on Facebook my other Facebook friends shouldn’t assume that you are their friend. Maybe we are “friends” because of a shared interest that doesn’t carry over into all of my friendships.

      Among other things, I am a musician and a data comm engineer. Now my musician friends may not have anything in common with my data-comm friends. I like both groups of people, but for very different reasons.

      Both areas are business related, although I do not currently make any money from music I play benefits and treat it as seriously as I would a money-making endeavor. The problem is; how does one handle that matter on Facebook. My data-comm friends probably wouldn’t want to get a bunch of emails and notifications from musicians and vice versa.

      Privacy serves an essential purpose and posting personal info online is not good for one’s privacy.
