Is there a rail station where trolls are only seen by each other?

Less of a train, more like a trolley.

Interesting piece on BBC News about misinformation about the protests spreading on social media:

You're as gullible as tw; but, your replies are too short to be as entertaining. Thanks for trying anyway.

Well this is what can happen when celebrities decide to make a social or political statement through symbolic actions. They may be experts in the field for which they hold celebrity status; but, they're amateurs at influencing others and don't consider the possible ramifications down the road. Kaepernick knew very well that others would emulate him and that he was fully responsible for providing instruction on how to take a knee safely, including precautions and warnings like: Check to see that somebody's neck isn't on the ground right where you want to kneel AND Don't take knee for more than 2 1/2 minutes just in case you didn't notice that somebody's neck was under it. Celebrities need to be held accountable when they recklessly wield their influence over others to the detriment of public welfare.

I'm an Independent, not registered with either party to vote in the primaries; so, I had to play the hand I was dealt. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I never bet more than I can afford to lose though.

And 400 more murders of innocent minority men encouraged by Trump. Sexobon expresses sympathy with Nazis, White Supremacists, KKK, and a scumbag president. He openly admits he approves of the scumbag. Because it will achieve his fascist beliefs - that include hate, racism, economic recession, wasted military lives, loss of international respect, demonstration that result in riots, looting and police violence, fear, a need for more guns, rampant pandemics, and same things that Henry Quirk and Urbane Guerrilla (his peers) also want. He wants to 'wreck shit'. Same technique that Nazis used 90 years ago.

Her name is Melania. He will trade her in, like a used car, for a new one. Sexobon apparently wants what Trump had. Amazing the things that a Trump lover wants.

Sexobon even lies about his political beliefs. He supports right wing extremist Republicans. And admits it. Now suddenly he is not? Lying is how Nazis and Trump also gained power.

Sources that cannot be verified should always be ignored. Since adults must know / confirm facts long before concluding anything. Adults, who are still children, quickly believe anything on social media (or Fake Fox News) that enthralls their emotions. Since emotions are enough to make conclusions.

Social media is how the naive get deceived. Finally Twitter has decided that some Trump lies are so flagrant as to be noted. So Trump immediately threatened revenge. Since Trump needs social media lies to promote himself.

There are some real dangers in assuming yourself immune or fully guarded against the pitfalls of basic human psychology.

I referred to Ivanka, his daughter, not Melania, his wife.

I've referenced his daughter, Ivanka, several times before.

You're such a dingbat that you don't know the difference between the President's daughter and his wife!

Are they treating you well there at the home? Keeping you safe from looters I hope. At least you don't have to worry about anyone stealing your marbles, they're already long gone.
