Truth Social?

The real truth is that one term GOP loser Donald Trump's Truth Social tried to stand up to Big Tech, but as usual, he has failed again.

Republican congressman Devin Nunes resigned to help Trump run Truth Social into the ground. This could be one of the saddest things to happen to this couple in a few years. The real harsh truth is that Trump’s social media app follows a long line of failed ventures.

Without the late Andrew Jerrold Perenchio's amazing vision, there may never be the Spanish-language Television Network Univision.

We are all sinners whether we acknowledge this in public or not. Years ago one man's SIN revolutionized American entertainment.

In religion, sin is a transgression against divine law. Each culture has its own interpretation of what it means to commit a sin. While sins are generally considered actions, any thought, word, or act considered immoral, selfish, shameful, harmful, or alienating might be sinful.

I got wonderful gifts for my birthday, including a modern air purifier from my dear daughters.

The surprises included texts that I read as well as cards, emails and voice mails I heard.

According to Frontline on Public Broadcasting Service, the promise of Facebook was to create a more open and connected world. 

But from the company’s failure to protect millions of users’ data, to the proliferation of “fake news” and disinformation,  mounting crises have raised the question: Is Facebook more harmful than helpful? This major, two-night event investigates a series of warnings to Facebook as the company grew from Mark Zuckerberg’s Harvard dorm room to a global empire.

Facebook is a worldwide online social media and global networking service owned by Facebook, but I am over and out of there.

The CBS New Program  60 Minutes says Facebook puts profit over safety and amplifies the worst of human nature.

The platform also owns #Instagram and #WhatsApp, to get messaging and calling for free, available on phones all over the world.

The case for deleting our Facebook account has grown stronger each and every day, so for me, the time came and I went away.
