The Obama Social Network

THERE was much recent publicity in Melbourne about Facebook pages naming career criminal Adrian Bayley as the killer of Jill Meagher. The police wanted them taken down for fear of prejudicial pre-trial publicity making a conviction impossible to achieve. The courts and judges were equally miffed, as were sundry politicians who lined up to condemn the public for voicing opinions about matters only their betters on the bench were said to be capable of blessing with rational consideration.

Facebook resisted for days before eventually making some efforts to gag those pages and their commenters.

But criticise Obama and some anonymous kid wearing a knitted cap deep in Facebook's bowels will silence such observations in a twinkling. Here is what Facebook has refused to allow:

It is not just governments that believe a gagged populace is a quiet populace.

    1. Thanks for the site Dave. I rarely go on faceache but I just did and (blush) liked it.
      Nothing new in Governments shafting their ex soldiers though. Have a look what successive Australian Governments have done to Service Pensions.

    Asking the Leftist media to rein in Obama is like asking Beelzebub to rein in Belial.

  3. Given what we know, the statement on the University website that hosts the video is something less than candid.
    "Scientific study resubmitted.
    An issue has been identified in the processing of the data used in the study, "Evidence of unusual late 20th century warming from an Australasian temperature reconstruction spanning the last millennium" by Joelle Gergis, Raphael Neukom, Ailie Gallant, Steven Phipps and David Karoly, accepted for publication in the Journal of Climate.
    The manuscript has been re-submitted to the Journal of Climate and is being reviewed again."

  5. I always thought Barry O was the Pied Piper...now there is proof. Rats drown due to AlFrankenstom. Who would of thought Barry's alleged studying of hypnosis books would have worked out.
