Tonight on Facebook I got a real education.
I learned that naturopathic doctors are getting murdered by the pharmaceutical giants and that chemotherapy never works. Obamacare may be exposed for what it really is and I can sign a petition with a few strokes and clicks to make everything all right again.
I learned that the media says that Clinton is leading Trump in (crafted?) “polls” and that extremist demonstrators stabbed a bunch of people while I baked cookies on a beautiful night.
I learned that all I have to do to clean my colon is to drink a blueberry concoction and that the sunset over our town was a blessing from God.
I learned that the USA should withdraw from the United Nations now that the UK has withdrawn from the EU but the vote may be reconsidered too.
I learned whose family did what this weekend, the anniversaries that were celebrated, and the babies-n-pets who have done the cutest things lately.
I learned that those with chronic illness, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, and the like are still suffering out there making me really sad.
I learned some cute slogans to remember with some attached to Bible references and cool photos. Are they be real or photo shopped?
I learned who is selling what, whose stuff is still cool to look at, and what stuff we should all win/buy/enjoy before we die.
I learned about the upcoming webinars that will cure this or that, make fat melt away, or make my business succeed if I really tried hard enough to win!
I learned how to waste just under an hour pouring into the what-you-can-see lives of others and the social media marketers of fairy tale realities, stuff, skills I need, emoticons, or whatever advertisements to distract me from living my own life.
I learned that God is more popular than Jesus . . . as a matter of fact I did not see the name Jesus Christ mentioned at all.
Most of all I learned that my daytime spent sick in bed was probably still better than the mindless, numbing, lying, evil crap that often goes on in the world around me and gets posted on Facebook. So please send me pictures of puppies and maybe a cute kid or penguin. Scripture rocks too. The rest is quite meaningless.
We’ll see if tomorrow on Facebook is any better? (I never learn!) JJ
