“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

You can't save sick children with Facebook likes

We all have friends on Facebook who regularly post ""Like" if you want to save little Timmy", or something. Timmy's either lost in the woods, has incurable brain cancer, or microcephaly from the Zika virus. 

The idea that clicking "like" on Facebook somehow helps somebody, anybody, in crisis is absurd. All it does is let the clickers feel good about themselves that they helped, without actually helping in any way. 

That's why I laughed out loud at this meme. To click on "like" to save Timmy is to believe that Jesus is checking the numbers to see if he should save Timmy or not. It's patently idiotic.
