White House welcomes Facebook move to block private gun sales | Reuters

WASHINGTON The Obama administration on Monday welcomed Facebook Inc's move last week to prohibit users from using its services to coordinate person-to-person private sales of firearms. "Obviously, we welcome steps from private entities like Facebook," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at a press briefing, following Facebook's announcement on Friday. Earnest would not comment on whether anyone in the administration had sought such a decision by Facebook, but he said some companies are interested in preventing individuals from circumventing background checks via Internet sales. #social media #facebook #United States #Crime #Gun control

Tears are okay: Obama cried, why don't Jayalalithaa, Mayawati or Mamata show some emotion too?

Women in public life feel even more compelled to show that they are not swayed by emotions, that they are not saps in short. Maybe it began with Indira Gandhi, who used to say, “As a prime minister, I am not a woman. I am a human being.” Ignoring her gender was her way of becoming “the only one to wear pants” in her cabinet. #Obama #Mayawati #Mamata #Jayalalithaa #InMyOpinion #USA #guns #GunControl
