    Facebook to remove all 'stop the steal' content ahead of Biden inauguration

    Facebook, as part of its preparations ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s Inauguration, is removing all content containing the phrase “stop the steal,” and is treating the two weeks leading up to the ceremony as a “major civic event.”

    Facebook's Vice President of Integrity Guy Rosen and Vice President of Global Policy Management Monika Bickert said the company began preparing for Inauguration Day last year, but said the planning “took on new urgency after last week’s violence in Washington D.C.”


    “We’re taking additional steps and using the same teams and technologies we used during the general election to stop misinformation and content that could incite further violence during these next few weeks,” they said in a statement.

    “We are now removing content containing the phrase “stop the steal” under our Coordinating Harm policy from Facebook and Instagram,” they continued.

    EDSA,” which stands for “Edited Crap, Democratic Party, Socialistic or Asian-Chinese.”

    You are slowly being bent over while the sound of zips being undone gets louder. The Brits have taken it deep for decades, to the point where we can hardly feel it anymore. This I believe is to be your chosen path.

    And you'll know what colour it will be upon insertion. Images of Big George flash to mind with a gritting of teeth to follow. Ironically evolution has been kind and cruel for such a happening as if everywhere she seeks to balance.

    The American dream has always themed anything as being possible and living the dream but now I understand more than ever that you are less free than I.

    There is something at the heart of this seemingly hypocritical behaviour and it has a religious quality that creates a blindness and licence to act with a self righteous impunity.

    The fact the Dems have gone for early removal is dangerous and I don't blame Trump for any further unrest. It could have slid out on time but yet again this movement pushes and as far as I am concerned the short sightedness is astonishing and could well light another touch paper.

    It takes a bigger man to sometimes walk away, a lesson both sides would benifit from.

    When the deep state Postal Service was busy throwing away Trump votes, they also came to a
    conclusion: expats probably vote conservative (Rep). So we who are Americans that choose
    to live overseas, never got any money from the handouts. Nothing.

    Now that Biden is on his way in, magically they tell me on the online form that
    they will be mailing me a check soon, from round two. Oh, so now the freaking
    mail is working? And they also said they could not deposit it to the same account
    that they pay my Soc. Security into - can not be done. And that the first check will
    now never be delivered - I should take it as a credit on next years tax payment.

    Cold as hell here today - down to the lower 50s. We get a cold front in January
    from supposedly Canada and the US, and another one in July, when everyone
    in the US is at the beach, it gets cold here for a month - supposedly from
    the South Americas. Go figure.

    Cold fronts are lovely Jim especially with your back to the fire.

    So already they are giving with one hand and taking with the other, you will be supporting all comers, dossers and losers before you know it. Its almost a sport here, climbing over one another to be seen is now being considered for the Olympic games.

    What ever happened to Velcro midget darts.

    Now we know why the Romans had their Circus. Congress and the mainstream media are just as
    real as wrestling.

    Yeah. We got ours. Handed it to the State of New York for October taxes. Hopefully some of it will be spent building Andy a nice case to keep his Emmy in. February taxes coming up, that's where any other 'stimulus' check will go.

    I'm getting money from the government and working for myself and others.

    Never had it so good as going out to work has a huge appeal, especially for myself, have a nice one coming up and even travelling up North for a few days will seem like a break.

    Happiest people in the world are those who pay the highest taxes. I heard a guy talking of how if we all paid a little more, in time we would feel a sense of ease. Norwiegians are one of the most content and pay a bigger percentage. Very content people and it shows in their demeanour.

    We received both of our stimulus checks. We want to hold onto the money to buy a new washer and dryer this spring but some bill always creeps up.

    Well I am over it anyway - I don't care if they pay me or not. Screw the government. I could use it - my water tank fell over in a storm two weeks ago and I had to put in a new tower and tank by myself. And I broke down and bought a Suzuki 250 MC (Katana) for the weekends, and it needs a new starter. Brand new and it won't start. I'm suing the dealer but it will take about 4-5 months for the consumer affairs people to get me my money.

    The laws work pretty good here. Two years ago the medical group for the government (we have free medical, pharmacy and dental here - well, $50 bucks a month for me and the wife together) but they were delaying a knee operation for her because it is expensive. Just like the VA Hospitals back home - their first option in a surgery is to delay when possible. So, for free, I filled out the papers and took them to the Supreme Court. Four months later they ruled and gave the hospital 30 days to do the surgery or be closed down for good. And so she got her knee fixed.

    They say we are still a third-world country but I think we might be creeping up on two and a half.

    I did feel sorry for that Bison shaman guy as they wouldn't give him organic food in prison. Well now he is nailed to the wall in Pelosi's office I don't feel so bad about it all.

    A 33 year old unemployed man who stormed the Capitol building and who lives in his mother’s basement will only eat organic food? Please, spare me.

    Clearly you're some type of Trump-racist that needs to be banned, then cancelled. Or is it the other way around? I always mix those two up ...... probably my white privilege or insensitivity again ....I'll impeach myself later

    Ooops, to late. Corporations have been controlling our foreign policy for years. What's the point of being the #1 arms manufacturer in the history of human kind if you don't find something to blow up every now and then.
