Social Services vs Social Networking

The question “What’s wrong with this picture?” has reached new heights. We are “cutting back” on much needed social services to the point of non-existence, while a social networking site on the Internet is worth incalculable amounts of money, based on future advertising revenues. Which means the privacy this social networking site claims isn’t so private, or why would advertisers back it? My mind can’t get around it. I live on disability due to NF, and I lost my health insurance due to the price tag: $650 a month for me…one person. I don’t even want to think about what will happen to me as my health continues to deteriorate, which it promises to do. Many doctors won’t see people on Medicare; I will be able to continue to see the ones I have (so far) but I always need more. Perhaps the answer, down the line, will be to euthanize those that need medical help. We seem to be heading in that direction. Survival of the fittest.


When will we learn that the net worth of air (the Internet site) does not compare to the net worth of our “friends” that use the social networking site. Probably never. I can’t even begin to understand how air can be worth so much, even with advertising revenues. The greed just never stops. Bernie and all that he did to his investors is a fast faded memory, as new Silas’s rise to the surface. And those in need are buried under it.
