    I like their conviction - It is not about money – It is all about what has been taken away from them both by way of deception and that is just like stealing directly under their eyes. That is not acceptable by me nor should anyone by praising any thief.

  6. Stealing is Stealing

    ) Facebook. A team of several non-Jews had worked on that concept of Facebook while going to school. There was one Jew who was working with them on the project but that Jew had nothing to do with the origination of the Facebook invention. He was assisting them but was not the original creator of Facebook. But, once that Jew and his other Jew comrades around him at school found out and realized how incredibly profitable and useful that system was the other Jews told the Jew to try to break off the connection of socializing with the other non-Jew architects of Facebook so that it would appear to everyone that the Jew came up with this or perfected it by himself with no help from the other non-Jew students at the same school he was attending.
    Well, guess what happened. The Jews now own Facebook. The Jews control the website and control the flow of information that comes from it. The Jews have the power and ability now to spy and investigate into so many people's lives which is abusive, illegal, unethical and unreasonable. But the Jews call it “fair business.” WRONG!!! All others call it outright theft and abuse towards the original creators and designers of Facebook. How do you think they feel now about Jews ? Believe me it would sound a lot more nasty than what's being typed here now! And I'm sure when the Jews paid $65 million to the originators and designers of Facebook they also had to sign and agree to never agreeing to speak in public or allow themselves to be interviewed about their experiences with the Jew and the Jews who helped the Jew STEAL which did not belong to him and he had no right to take Facebook for himself and throw out the original designers and architects of Facebook! And don't you think by paying them off with $65 million says it all! It says that the Jew and other Jews involved new that the original designers of Facebook had a lot of rights to the original design of Facebook? That's why 65 million was paid instead of $2 or $3 million. And now Facebook is worth over $65 billion, yes $65 billion! And the power acquired by Jews who now own it and control it CAN AND WILL take advantage of that in such an abusive way which will make them even more billions of dollars and even more control over our country, our politicians, our bills being sent through the House and Senate which will be surprisingly passed because of the billionaire owner Jew of Facebook. Well, the senior Jews above him and around him will advise him how to use that power to the Jews advantage without any consideration to those people and businesses they steal more money and power from.
