>Obama's fault for not trying to appoint anyone to the Supreme Court.

You forgot your /s. It's hard to tell you're being sarcastic without it.

There might *actually* be some people who don't know that Obama has nominated a judge and the Republicans are the ones who refused to confirm him.

>the dark matter explanation feels a bit hacky anyway.

Dark matter isn't the explanation, it's the question.

We observe things like: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

You know those TSA approved luggage locks? The Washington Post did a story on them, and included pictures of the master keys.

Someone saw this and used the photos to make a functional 3D-printed set of keys. All of those TSA approved locks are useless now.

It is impossible to make a backdoor that only the "good guys" can use. It *will* get leaked, stolen, or cracked.
