Much has happened as of late. The TSA has been in the limelight with this 95% failure rate in screening passengers. If that isn’t unnerving in and of itself, it has failed to detect 73 airport workers who are listed on the terrorist watch list. The excuse: not having complete access to the lists. There always seems to be a good excuse but excuses just don’t give me a cozy feeling when ineptness could cause me to die. And more money seems to be the cure for the left but when did money ever cure ineptness? We have seen daily with this government that it doesn’t work and that is the MANAGEMENT SIDE OF THE BUSINESS! What about the lost badges? Hundreds of them missing and there are no answers why. Feel safe yet? You think the government has your back? Think again.
Let me get to the real concern for this post. The Patriot Act came up for review and extension. People have been very concerned about the NSA and mega data from phone calls, etc., etc.,etc. And this is the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution that they site. Re:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The people are suppose to have protections against the government and their snooping. Reason being, too much information in the wrong hands is dangerous to individuals. But sometimes people must willingly give the government EXTENSIVE information; about every piece of information we need to keep our public accounts secure from invading forces, i.e. Identity thieves. For some individuals the government has every bit of that information PLUS interviews, very private things asked through polygraph, etc. this information, in the wrong hands, can not only ruin someone’s complete life, but put them at risk for blackmail as well as endanger the individual, family members, personal and professional relations. This becomes the ultimate worst case scenario that no one wants to endure.
China hacked the OPM. This isn’t about Hillary explicitly but the administration in general. This information should never had an outside access. No sensitive information should have outside access. Here is a site talking about classified and secure information. So what is wrong with this picture? Here is the code. It appears that the government agencies are riddled with “oops” and “incompetents”. What we need to do is go back to paper cause computers sure aren’t cutting it where the government is concerned.
