Yet, the woman who has the blood of four Americans on her hands (those who died in Benghazi on her watch) and state with a straight face that Donald Trump is reckless and dangerous? Last time I checked Trump’s actions have not resulted in the deaths of Americans or hundreds of thousands of foreigners. Hillary and her policies have wreaked death and destruction.
...Scammers have found a simple way to fly under the radar during the early phases of their operation. The story they originally post to Facebook has nothing dangerous about it. It's just a regular story that anyone might post. That was the warning from one local Better Business Bureau last year.
Only after the post gets a certain number of likes and shares does the scammer edit it and add something malicious. They might start promoting products or sell the page information in an attempt to get credit card data. In fact, if you go back through your history of liked posts, you might find that some of them have changed to something you wouldn't have liked in a million years....
Posts that should give you pause
One popular type of story is the emotional one. You've definitely seen the posts showing rescue animals and asking you to like if you think they're cute....
What about brain-teaser posts, such as the ones that have you like or share if you can read the words backwards or solve a tricky math problem? Yep, those are often like-farm posts, too.
It isn't just posts either; it can also be pages. A scammer might set up a page for "I love puppies" or what appears to be a worthy company or organization. It puts up enough content to get a lot of likes, then switches the content to spam and scams. Once you've liked the page, everything new the scammers put up goes on your News Feed and, in some cases, your friends' feeds as well.
How to avoid like-farming
Your best bet to avoid like-farming is to be very judicious about what you like and share on Facebook. Don't just reflexively click "like" on everything. Take a look at where the post is coming from. If it's from someone you don't recognize, it could be a friend of a friend or it could be a complete stranger. It would be good to find out....

"The state has routinely frittered away transportation money by spending it on other projects. During the last recession, the Legislature moved $1 billion per year in truck weight fees from funding road maintenance to the General Fund."

Florida Republicans 'MORE LIKELY' to back after Chicago... https://t.co/nEmMyajXm0— DRUDGE REPORT (@DRUDGE_REPORT) March 14, 2016
President Obama’s hometown of Chicago has been controlled by his political party since at least 1931. For most of us, the Windy City is a cautionary tale of what America could look like if Barack Obama and his cronies (and their political philosophy) were allowed to reign unopposed and unchecked.
Fortunately, America is a lot a bigger than Chicago, but we’ve already seen the effects of seven years of Chicago-style politics emanating from the White House. That can be stopped this November, but only if freedom-loving Americans make their voices heard at the polls.

...Redway resident Glen “Bud” Rogers entered the supervisorial race to challenge incumbent 2nd District Supervisor Estelle Fennell.
This is not Rogers’ first attempt at the 2nd District seat, having unsuccessfully campaigned for the position back in 2004, according to smartvoter.org.
...The filing period for the 3rd District supervisor seat will remain open until 5 p.m. on March 16 due to Supervisor Mark Lovelace not seeking reelection this year. Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District Commissioner Mike Wilson and Fickle Hill resident Uri Driscoll have both filed candidacy papers for the position....

About $63,000 is being recommended by county staff to pay for a “critical emergency services gap” along the State Route 299 corridor area, which is not covered by the nearby fire districts in Blue Lake, Kneeland and Willow Creek. These three fire districts have been responding to this large area on a “goodwill” basis for several years, but are unable to collect any fees from them.
“These three fire districts are currently called upon to provide this service, funded only by revenue generated from within their districts,” a Feb. 26 letter from the Humboldt County Fire Chiefs Association to the board states. “This is not a sustainable or equitable system and a new structure needs to be put in place. These three fire districts have communicated to the county that they are no longer in a financial position to continue to provide this service without funding.”
The proposed $63,000 would only cover fire services for the remainder of the fiscal year, which ends on June 30.
Fifth District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg, who serves on the board’s Fire Services Committee with Fennell, said the majority of the service calls that districts receive in these uncovered areas are vehicle collisions and medical aid calls on SR 299.
“This is kind of bridge funding between now and the time we get the whole issue solved for Humboldt County for rural fire departments responding outside their district,” Sundberg said.
