Agreed. Facebook and Google+ are for fucking morons with no life! And if you have any IQuit points you would never run legit FB/G+ accounts!

In one small meaningless country far far away, puppet regime has already prepared very strict legislation which leads to total web silence or draconian penalties ... even jail for those who dare to think with their own heads.

Remember McCain before elections: blah blah ... we do not need internet ......... than you have CNBC with cyber security saga , other puppet media will follow ...... than you have wikileaks, nothing special but "dangerous for national security" ..... than Anonymous etc etc

One nice day when powerz fear will start reaching fobia levels - banksters will just switch us off

You know there are a couple of avatars here with "puffed out chests" and their booties shined who could walk all over me (in the good sense of that expression.)

I have a gold vault, I forget the price
Ain't never been there, they tell me it's nice
I stomp through my office, tear out the walls
I print up the dollars to pay for it all

They say I'm crazy but I have a good time
I'm just looking for clues 
at the scene of the crime
Life's been good to me so far

Hey Ben... Did you know that the non-money; ie, gold, has kicked the crap out of equities for the past 11 years?
