How could you leap to that conclusion? Any quotes you have be able to offer might give some substance to your statement.

 

This member of the RW (Really Wise) has repeatedly posted his concern about the hacking that has been going on for years and has cost our companies (and our economy) billions annually.

 

I have also pointed out that lack of interest by those who now have their hair on fire until hacking revealed the corruption on the DNC.


Companies being hacked is one thing and causes concern, however it is up to those companies to address it.

 

The hacking by the Russians of state voter data bases and the DNC is something all citizens should deem unacceptable (even the Rarely Wise). Blindly defending Trump and /or the Russians in this and minimizing it by comparing it to businesses getting hacked is utterly ridiculous and nothing but a 'look over here' tactic. It's not working.

Of course hacking won't end. it has been going on for years costing American businesses billions per year. And no one cared until hacking showed the DNC corrupting the primary and campaign processes. Then it was the biggest scandal ever and suddenly even President Trump was a "doer".

The Russian hacking has not stopped, and will not stop, that is the new way to infiltrate their ideas into countries that they don't have as allies.
Cyber space is new, and we still haven't gotten acustumed to the dangers of such attacks.
We will have to simply be pro active and be careful. That is the reason that voting in the computer online would be too dangerous to do at this time.

Exclusive: Trump campaign had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians: sources

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-russia-contacts-idUSKCN18E106

 

Tom - Then as I said the other day, the free world and NATO need to tell Putin anymore interference in our elections or it will be considered an act of war!

 

The "win/win" is fairy tale.  Robert Mueller (who does not resemble a skeleton at all!) will be painting those empty spaces left by the Really Wise in their Big Pictue.

 

So what is the interferrence called when Putin offers to Americans his own transcript of a private conversation he had with our president.  One would think he would go home but guess not.

RK--Well, now that we have determined where DNC reference came from, Clapper was discussing future hacking with regard to elections, not private or public companies. Yes, private and public hacking was discussed, but only as a precursor to discussion about election hacking. 

RE: Your post being "accurate and insightful." LOL!! Did'nt realize until now how funny you can be.


It seems to me that if we get serious about combating hacking it is a win/win. To politicize it would be a mistake.

 

Can we find agreement on that?

Rk--with regard to the big picture, you seem confused where that came from. Once again I suggest that you check your own post.


Is this the same subject I just replied to or something different?

 

Or just more "kudo-hunting"? If so - congrats.
