That damned Facebook

What's Mallard raving about today?


Mallard is hiding under his desk for fear of Facebook.

Mallard was a cheerleader for the people who violated our Civil Rights with the Patriot Act and openly violated the FISA law.

I think Mallard just got turned on to weed.

Yeah, the lack of self-awareness is quite...unsurprising. I'm not quite sure what he thinks facebook is like, either. If you don't want a piece of information about yourself made public, don't post it. It's that simple. Unlike government surveillance programs, this is purely a voluntary activity.

Mallard's only just now figured out facebook?

See, this is why I have a problem with neocons outlining policies for my life. They have no clue what actually goes on outside their little bubble, and I'm not young enough for it to be teenage centrism on my part.

Facebook: private enterprise

Warrantless wiretapping of the very phone Mallard is using: big government.

Tinkley: fears private enterprise, but loves Big Brother!

Friday, Dean's Comic Booth posted another genius mashup, this time featuring Mallard at the Flagstons

Actually, I took this strip to mean not that Tinsley's alter-ego is afraid of the corporate behemoth Facebook, but rather afraid of the fact that people he hasn't seen in decades suddenly know that he exists again and seem to be taking an interest in him. I actually know a few people of Tinsley's age group who didn't realize that just because Facebook calls them "friends", it doesn't mean that old enemies couldn't start sending you friend messages as well.

I imagine that someone like Tinsley might well have made a lot of enemies over the years. Though I suppose he may be afraid that Facebook is watching him, which would be strange but fit right in with his persecution comples.

As usual, Tinkley is unable to comprehend the concept of "consent" and, in this case, the roll it plays in signing up for Facebook.
