Jocular Look @ Today’s News || Hackers politely warn us in advance of their planned Facebook shutdown


If you’re planning on uploading those Halloween pics to Facebook, you may want to do it before Nov. 5. Business Insider is reporting that our friends from the Anonymous collective — those secret hacktivists behind that increasingly well-known Guy Fawkes mask above — is threatening to shut down Facebook and Zynga on on that day. The group is apparently upset about Zynga’s alleged plans to lay off employees and send jobs overseas. In an offensive it’s calling “OP MaZynga,” the group say its ops have already begun releasing leaked documents from Zynga execs and will soon give free Zynga games to the public if the group doesn’t halt the offshoring plan. It’s hard to say if the hacktivists will pull it off or not, but we’re gonna get those ghost and goblin photos up right after Halloween just in case.

MrMary Weighs In

Sometimes I wish I was cool and and could wear a Guy Fawkes  and commit Cyber Crimes that expose hypocrisy of people and corporations. I’m not sure how I feel. Like what is the coding skill necessary to  be a hacker ? Either way I am wondering wear does one draw the line between protest and criminal behavior . Ok enough with the reverie. 

I do get though the hypocrisy of people labelled as job creators by politicians. They seem to use the countries resources to establish their companies, then after a certain threshold of success is reached, they ship many jobs overseas.  What I gathered from the jargon was that the rich are considered “the engine of the economy” all the other people “rely” on them for their survival. 

According to the principles established by Goebbels; I would like to say right here and now that the word “job-creators” used in the 2012 elections is the very definition of “propaganda”  and looking at how the phrase job- creators have been used in the election. I would like to classify it as a propaganda word.  Take a look as some quotes and the principles and see if it can be plausible

According to Goebbels

Propaganda must label events and people with distinctive phrases or slogans.

  1. They must evoke responses which the audience previously possesses.
  2. They must be capable of being easily learned.
  3. They must be utilized again and again, but only in appropriate situations.
  4. They must be boomerang-proof.

The Statements

“The man at the top of the intellectual pyramid contributes the most to all those below him, but gets nothing except his material payment, receiving no intellectual bonus from others to add to the value of his time. The man at the bottom who, left to himself, would starve in his hopeless ineptitude, contribute nothing to those above him, but receives the bonus of all their brains.”
Ayn Rand, “Atlas Shrugged,” required reading for Rep. Paul Ryan’s, R-Wis., staff.

“The Zambrellis scoffed at attempts by the Democrats … to wage class warfare … ‘It’s not helping the economy to pit the people who are the engine of the economy against the people who rely on that engine.’”
– Michael Zambrelli, Mitt Romney fundraiser, East Hampton, N.Y., July 8, 2012, quoted in the Los Angeles Times

Maybe I should do  retrospective look at the propaganda key words in the election

Tell me what you think
