https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/30/tech/facebook-fake-trump-page/index.html?cid=web-alerts&nsid=88716978

there's that whole facebook free speech thing
wonder how much money it scammed from people who thought they were donating to trump?



New York (CNN Business)Even as its executives were out fiercely defending its policies on political ads this month, Facebook (FB) was allowing an obviously fake page that purported to be linked to President Trump's reelection campaign to run ads on its platform. The ads directed users to an online donation portal that claimed to be a way to donate to the Trump campaign.

The Trump campaign told CNN on Wednesday that the page, called "DonaldTrumpCampaign," was not affiliated with the real campaign and called it a "scam." After CNN contacted Facebook for comment, the company removed the page, saying it broke the platform's rules on impersonation. The page's permissions to run political ads had been "mistakenly applied," Facebook said.


seems the same 'bad actor' was running something on instagram, too. paypal was collecting the money for an address given that turned out to be a grocery store where no one knew about the scam.

funny stuff

and he's not wrong... it's not like the registered charities (those with retail outlets, can't speak for others) pay their shop staff much; it's a pittance, for the workload, and even so only a few get paid... the majority are volunteer workers. yes, there are overheads, but posh uber-expensive london headquarters aren't a necessity; nor are expensive-to-produce ads and literature/'free gifts'. the one i worked at first as a volunteer showed us pretty pie charts about how 100% of the monies were spent. didn't tell us that was 100% of the money they allocated to spending, the other 83 or more percent went who the freak knows where? and this charity DID have posh london headquarters with bloody crystal chandeliers and posh office staff. others i worked for were progressively better, and not run as some paper tax-loss to benefit the associated nobs.

2%
yep, 2%.. that's all it requires for you to nominate as what gets spent on the actual charity's work for you to be able to get registered as a legit charity. people give you stuff. for free. most your workforce goes unpaid. it's pretty disgusting.

Mike Pence, oh yeah, that's for sure: In other news, Bernie Sanders is a sack of lung mucus and Joe Biden is a creepy sack of shit.

as for political adds you can only sort out the issue of truth and facts if you ban all political adds - both sides are consummate liars and I do not want to see ads from any of those mother suckers.

LOL - It is not possible that a conclusion or a set of conclusions could be arrived at on this and many other subjects. You've got the Mongols to the right and the Mongols to the left - those in the middle will be slaughtered or at least disenfranchised - such is the history of man - no lessons learned

On
the turning away
on the things
that you believed in
on
the turning away
on the things that you felt
was it just a case
of all the pressuring
from all those so called
face book  
friends
do you allow your self to be
just a voice in a crowd
with no base
you can
hold on to
just pillers of doubt
that fester deep down within
a heart that slowly bleeds
fragile tears
that try to see
behind
all the things

That are not what they seem

Why subscribe
to face book
when you can surf
close to the edge
where curiosity
will get you wet
and sometimes bloody
on the rocks
along the shores
of the unknown
that you have yet
to Explore

Ive got a tired
weary mind
a feeling
of being hollow
inside

Ive got the usual
on my
face book posts
with tacked on group hug
likes
that make me sigh
when i
try to smile

Ive got the newest
trending clothes
Ive got the boardwalk
t.v pose
with a body
that would make
an anorexic
cry

Ive got the standard
plastic smile
and ive got a strong urge
to cry
but ive got no one to cry to

Ive got a lot of face book
friends
where verbal diarrhea
pretends

Ive got a knife
that keeps calling out
my name

Oh please
someone pick up
my hope
and hold me
close
for i need some one
to help me
grow
while i'm
still here
before
there is
nobody home
