A massive breach of federal personnel data

Scroll down to read this post.
For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

Government marches on! It appears that the federal Office of Personal Management and the Interior Department have both been hacked, exposing 90% of all federal employee records.

This information is being reported in many places, some of which say Chinese hackers did the deed.

    If only they had used the same security that Hillary used on her private server. You know, the one that she used for her classified SoS emails.

    And we are supposed to trust this monopoly(US government) with our financial and medical data?

    They should use the computer system that has never been hacked or messed with. Even though the technology is 20 years old, it is safe as Fort Knox. Yes, I am talking about the same computer system that handles the election. No one has ever tampered with that…

  • I’m not feeling a lot of sympathy for the Feds here.
