    Wait until your currency Is Federal reserve digital currency. Then they can skip all the Private identification shit like SS number and just take the $.
    Fakebook has a market cap north of $900 billion.
    It got its start as Operation Lifelog funded by Us. The idea was can they get a way for people to tell them about who they are and who they are connected to with photos and tracking.
    Created by the C-A . Operation Lifelog was canceled the same day Fakebook incorporated. The story haha haha was FuQerberg figured it all out or stole it from another college buddy haha haha. He must owe some folks a lot of favors.
    Fakebook,’s Zuckerberg used over $300 million for 2020 election theft. They hire lunatic communists to fake factcheck and censor the truth. They block President Trump and allow Isis or Taliban terrorists , give me a fuQing break.
    These monopolistic crony capital anti free speech platforms run by the ENEMY of the people should be tried in a military tribunal. Just like Tokyo Rose was.
