    Another critical voice on Facebook has been silenced by Cuckerberg.

    "Felix Baumgartner is an Austrian skydiver, daredevil and BASE jumper. He is best known for his participation in the Red Bull Stratos project, in which he jumped to Earth from a helium balloon in the stratosphere on October 14, 2012. Doing so, he set world records for skydiving an estimated 39 km (24 mi), reaching an estimated top speed of 1,357.64 km/h (843.6 mph), or Mach 1.25, . He became the first person to break the sound barrier without vehicular power relative to the surface on his descent. He broke skydiving records for exit altitude, vertical freefall distance without drogue, and vertical speed without drogue. Though he still holds the latter records, the first was broken two years later, when on 24 October 2014, Alan Eustace jumped from 135,890 feet - or, 41.42 km (25.74 mi) with a drogue.

    Baumgartner is also renowned for the particularly dangerous nature of the stunts he has performed during his career. Baumgartner spent time in the Austrian military where he practiced parachute jumping, including training to land on small target zones."

    "Refugee row: Skydiver calls politicians idiots

    Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner is at the centre of a huge row after branding the country's politicians idiots over their handling of the refugee crisis and saying that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban “deserves a Nobel peace prize”.

    In the Facebook posting Baumgartner said: "A country where you get prosecuted for fishing without a licence, but people can cross the borders without a passport, can only be governed by idiots."

    Online commentators turned out in force to alternately praise him for making a stand on the asylum issue, while others accused him of blatant racism.

    Stuntman Baumgartner famously jumped to earth from a helium balloon in the stratosphere in 2012, and prior to that in 2003 glided across the English Channel from Dover to Calais.

    The 46-year-old currently lives in Switzerland after leaving Austria in a row about the amount of taxes he has to pay. He was in America when he made the Facebook posting, which then went viral in Austria.

    The positive comments the post attracted included "respect for someone with courage and common sense" through to "finally a celebrity who isn't afraid of the political circus and gives an honest opinion".

    Others criticised him for acting as if he cared about Austria when in fact he was living in Switzerland.

    Responding to his critics, Baumgartner called them "pubescent brats" and said that if US President Barack Obama had been awarded the Nobel Peace Price despite being responsible for the deaths of innocent civilians through drone strikes, then Orban should also get one for "doing the right thing and protecting his country".

    The leader of the right-wing Freedom Party, Heinz-Christian Strache, said in response to Baumgartner's post: "The quote needs nothing added. It hits the nail on the head."

    He also pointed out the original quote was from Czech Republic President Milos Zeman, who said: "If you live in a country in which fishing without a licence is punished in court, yet nothing happens for illegally crossing over the borders without a valid passport, then you certainly have the right to say that your country is ruled by idiots."

    my wife banned me from her account

    I like to look at the local paper site
    find local people arrested for shit
    luring a kid, drug bust, shit like that
    then see if they have a fb account
    if they do I send a friend request
    most accept oddly enough
    sometimes she won't notice for some time
    she's got one fucked up bunch of friends (is what I hope others looking at her account will think)

    shenanigans

    MYSTERY: CNN loses feed as reporter critiques Hillary Clinton

    What happened on Tuesday isn’t going to do anything to help CNN shed the “Clinton News Network” moniker.

    As reporter Brianna Keilar was appearing live from Hillary’s speech in Springfield, Illinois — and critiquing her record — the feed was mysteriously lost.
    “Largely Hillary Clinton’s comments here today, John, were based around the recent violence that we have seen,” Keilar reported.

    “The police-involved shootings of black men in Minnesota, in Louisiana, and the killing of white police officers by a black gunman in Dallas. That was really what she based her comments on around today.

    “And remember Hillary Clinton has some vulnerabilities herself.

    “Even as she calls for criminal justice reform because of her support in the 1990s for anti-crime legislation that ultimately helped contribute to this era of mass incarceration that she now speaks out again–,” Keilar was saying.

    The screen suddenly went black with only the graphics — referring to Donald Trump as “dangerous” — remaining.

    “We just lost Brianna Keilar who was in Springfield, Illinois where Hillary Clinton just spoke,” anchor John Berman said, before moving on.
