I honestly don't have nor have ever had any social media accounts. I wonder if they'd believe me?

Yawn. Pass me my foil hat. Why should I trust clicking on a link that takes me to an activist site? I trust Facebook more than activists.

The last i heard pharmaceutical companies want you to get sick, make your brain dumb, and get treatment that makes you even sicker. the USA government brought down their own towers, plane and even bombed their own ministry of defence.

Old news - from June 2016.



The federal government has proposed adding a line to forms filled out by visitors to the United States that would ask them to voluntarily disclose their social media accounts, a step that it said would help in screening for ties to terrorism.


Visitors entering the country under the Visa Waiver Program, which allows citizens of some countries to visit up to 90 days without a visa, would not be required to list their social media accounts, and the forms would not ask for passwords.

The US government received a lot of criticism after the San Bernardo shootings for their policy that stopped them looking at the social media accounts of migrants. The reason for not looking at social media account was  'due to the negative public perception' that it could cause.

Well, of course Govt departments want to find out more about you. It makes their life easier.


The key thing is "... taking our short survey below."


Click-bait. Yawn.
