Green Party and Occupy have most educated Facebook Fans (Americans Elect and No Labels the least)

Facebook Buy Will Get Me Off Opera

Just last week, I added Opera web browser to my computer, in an attempt to diversify my approach to the Internet. There are so many different companies and government agencies collecting information about my online activities, I figure it’s safer to use different tools for different sorts of activities, reducing the chances that they’ll be [...]

You Don’t Create A Raging Business Flop Without Making A Few Enemies

My Vote For The Most Idiotic Anti-Obama Facebook Page Ever

Readers here know that I am not a big fan of Barack Obama. President Obama has gone too far to the right, repeating too many of the worst mistakes of George W. Bush, to pass my gaze without harsh criticism.

Still, when I see anti-Obama messages from the Republicans, I’m tickled at the unreflective stupidity [...]

Occupy Movement Produces Petition for Waiver of Constitutional Rights… For the GOV’T to Turn In

Among the Facebook accounts associated with the Occupy Ithaca movement, someone’s had it with the tactics of the government officials of Ithaca, New York. When the occupation of Ithaca began, city representatives persistently asked Occupy Ithaca to file for a permit in order to be able to stay in Dewitt Park. Just file the paperwork, [...]

The Facebook group praying of Obama’s death has 1,087,667 members. That means about one out of every 350 Americans is part of this group, standing with alleged right wing Christian terrorist Sam Crump. [...]

Ron Paul fans and GOPsters Flood Americans Elect Facebook Page

I’ve been keeping an eye on the number of Facebook fans of the 501c4 corporate presidential nomination called Americans Elect, out of curiosity more than anything else. Today, I noticed a spike at www.facebook.com/americanselect:

The messages they’re leaving aren’t expressing appreciation for Americans Elect. They’re applauding Americans Elect’s opposition: the stable of Republican presidential [...]

Americans Elect Policy Director Likes Full List of Financial Contributors. Why is there None?

We know that the Americans Elect corporation will soon make a public launch of its efforts to arrange the election of its own candidate for President of the United States. But there’s a lot we don’t know about the group. Could that be about to change?

The new Policy Director of Americans Elect is Elliot [...]
