    Itís time for Final Thoughts Ö on all this Facebook talk.

    It's true, folks: Our privacy and data are compromised on the

    Yeah, not a shocker. In fact, Iím shocked some of you think we
    still have privacy online. Hereís a friendly reminder - we donít.

    This Cambridge Analytica data breach is partly Facebookís fault.
    And Iím the last person to stick up for the teflon-coated hoodie
    that is Mark Zuckerberg.

    But ... letís be honest. We practically invite Facebook,
    Twitter, Google, Apple and the rest of Ďem into our personal and
    private lives - every time we log on.

    Behold: the device that is practically an appendage at this
    point: The almighty smart phone.

    George Orwell warned us almost 70 years ago, when he published
    "1984." But we didnít listen. We probably never will. Big
    Brother doesnít have to hack to get our fingerprints, passwords,
    or even retina scans. We do it for him - happily.

    We can cry over this latest Facebook breach and demand more
    privacy. But come on - weíve become too lazy, anti-human, and
    tech-addicted to truly care.

    Think Iím kidding? Whatís the first thing you do in a waiting
    room Ö a red light Ö any time you have a free moment? You check
    your phone. You check your likes, your views, your comments. You
    creep on your kids, your exes, people from high school.

    Hey, Iím right there with Ďya. And itís sad.

    No wonder the American family is breaking down. No wonder
    mentally unstable kids are falling through the cracks. Itís hard
    to notice the world in front of us when all we do is look down
    at a dang screen.

    Did you know research shows young people spend about five hours
    a day looking at phones?

    We drive with them, we sleep with them, we eat with them. We
    would probably shower with our phones if the water didnít
    destroy them.

    Heck, we even date with our phones. Itís gonna be interesting
    telling our grandkids we met their grandpa ďin the DMs.Ē

    You really wanna punish your kids? Give them an old school flip
    phone for a week. The fight for survival would look like a scene
    from "Hunger Games."

    This isnít just a millennial problem. Huh-uh. Everyone knows the
    50-plus crowd has taken over Facebook. And theyíll do the same
    with Instagram.

    The least of our worries should be data mining. Weíve lost real
    relationship and communication skills. Instead, we convey our
    emotions with crappy emojis and gifs.

    So yeah, we'll call Zuckerberg and friends on the carpet for a
    day, or maybe a week. Then what? We'll log back on and watch our
    cat videos - just like before.

    Look, social media isn't all bad. Heck, social media is what got
    me here. Perhaps we can find a happy medium? Maybe type a little
    less - and talk a little more?

    Weíve started to love technology and use people - when it should
    be the other way around.

    Those are My Final Thoughts. From LA, God Bless and Take Care.
