@ Nebraska’s State Senators? Why a Facebook bill? Can you name a Single Cornhusker Employer who has “Demanded” an Employee’s Password? Boondoggle, anyone?

WASHINGTON, D.C. (exclusive) by Ivy Harper

Please, LJS. Really? Seriously? You write that “Six states have passed laws to protect information on social media…”

Well, 49 American States have bi-cameral Legislatures; does that mean Nebraska should have one, too.

As our dear sweet mothers used to say, “If a friend decides to jump off a cliff, are you going to join them in their folly?”

Or as the great Senator Bob Kerrey once said when he spoke against a constitutional amendment on flag-burning: [I’m paraphrasing here] “It’s not an issue; there are not long lines of Americans cueing up to burn the flag.” It’s a rarity.

Americans know that it is illegal for employers to demand their private Facebook passwords + personal information, etc. Hello.

Howz about giving non-multi-million-dollar-earning, non-lawyer/lobbyists a modicum of credit for being savvy + intelligent about the way the real world works.

At the same time, for Facebook to be talking about privacy is really rich; in the irony department.

About as rich as the $50,000.00 (fifty thousand dollars) payment that Facebook handed over to the Mueller-Robak lobbying firm to push their self-serving, unnecessary legislation through Nebraska’s once-noble Unicameral.

Oh, and by the way, of course California “introduced” such a superfluous bill; Facebook’s headquarters are there; kinda reminds one of the way Nelnet always gets its way in Lincoln, no?

Interesting, isn’t it, that Facebook is a Mueller-Robak “Principal” client as is Nelnet, one that also shells out around fifty thousand dollars a year as “Principals” to Mueller-Robak. See a pattern here, anyone?

Quite strategic, wasn’t it, that the youngest Member of the Unicameral just so happened to “introduce” the bill.

We wonder why.

And yes, I’m being sardonic, my Friends.
