On Facebook, You Can Say “Shit” but not “Poison”

On Facebook, You Can Say “Shit” but not “Poison”

Here’s how stupid bureaucrats and dumb rules can be.

On Facebook, I mentioned being able to drive a million dollar boat in Bora Bora because the crew allowed meet do so. I was renting the boat for the evening for my clients.

A friend on Facebook commented, “I bet you would have thrown them overboard if they had refused.”

I replied, “I was thinking of poison.”

Facebook notified me that I had violated their rules against espousing violence and removed the post, warning me about writing such things again. The routinely, of course, allow all kinds of profanity, photos of horrible diseases, and deaths in warfare.

This is why TSA meticulously checks 90-year-old people in wheelchairs, and the IRS will send you an overdue notice for $2.25 (costing them $300), and the cable company will always take three days to get back to you. The answer is never “larger.” Amazon Prime delivery is fast—and sloppy and lazy, and leaves packages unprotected out in the rain.

If you think bigger and bigger government is going to make things better and better, I’d stop smoking that stuff even if is now legal.
