Comment Depends (Score 4, Interesting) 31

You know those commercials that sometimes come on local stations late at night for "Consumers Cellular"? The ads sell it like a cell phone provider for old people, since they always have sixty-somethings being hip with their no-contract cell phones and buying slutty red dresses to see if they can interest their hubbies in one more roll in the clover.

What you may not know, is that Consumer Cellular is actually a really good provider. You pay as you go, you can use practically any smartphone, including the iStatus from Apple. They mail you out a sim card and away you go. Data, calls, texts, it's cheap as shit. If you pay attention to what you're doing and know your way around, you can even avoid giving them real information, so it's the anonymity of a burner phone and the convenience of a major provider. And no contracts.

My wife has some Cadillac plan from one of the big providers, but when my contract was up with AT&T but my phone was still good, I figured, "What the hell?" and tried Consumers Cellular. It works great, has coverage wherever the other companies have coverage and AT&T can just suck my dick.

Of course, they are "under her control": if she had told them to increase security, they would have done it. And, of course, the staff and experts that slosh around her campaign and the DNC are likely later to get involved in her administration.

Clinton does not run the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz does - at least until the end of the convention. About 30 minutes ago, she announced she will be resigning because of this issue. Furthermore, the head of the Democratic Party is, at the moment, President Obama but, unless the duties for POTUS have changed and Obama has taken a Learning Annex course in computer system administration I don't know about, I'm sure he doesn't spend his days monitoring server logs at the DNC.

Certainly someone is directly responsible for not adequately protecting the DNC email systems, but it's not Clinton (or Obama). Ms. Wasserman Schultz had managerial responsibility and is owning up to the failures of this issue.

But, please continue to believe whatever fantasies you want about how things work.

I'm simply anti-Clinton because I think she is incompetent, deeply corrupt, and dangerous.

Have fun voting for Trump...

The hyphenation in Berners-Lee is a linguistic device, whereas Wasserman-Schultz is statement of Womyn's Liberation.

And he outs himself as a troll from /pol after all. Another Matt Forney/RooshV wannabe.

In case you don't know who that is, Matt Forney is a "men's rights activist" and all-around scumbag. Here's a photo, in case you're wondering why he's a man-going-his-own-way (MGTOW):


And RooshV is a guy who lives with his mom and writes pick-up guides about smashing puss. He believes rape should be legal, and has never been with a woman that he didn't pay for.


So the rest of you: the next time you see an AC trolling here, don't get upset wondering where all the messed up "nerds" have come from. These ACs calling people "nigger" and "kike" are just greasy scumbags who got lost on their way from the /pol sewers to Stormfront.

Do you really need to have this spelled out for you? She couldn't even protect E-mails ... [remainder omitted because it's even more stupid]

Do you? The systems at the DNC do not belong to her and are not under her supervision or control. The DNC is a private organization:

The DNC is composed of the chairs and vice-chairs of each state Democratic Party committee and over 200 members elected by Democrats in all 50 states and the territories. Its chairperson is elected by the committee. It conducts fundraising to support its activities.

Jesus, can you be anymore ignorant and/or partisan.

If anybody outside the Democratic party can leak these E-mails, then Hillary didn't take sufficient care of them and can't be trusted with national security secrets. Thanks, Hillary, for confirming this once again.

They were stolen from DNC systems. They contain email related to the election not national security issues.

... discuss reports that Russia had hacked into systems at the Democratic National Committee.
