this going to go well

I hope it passes, because I reckon the impact on me (several thousand miles away) will be quite limited. But it will be fantastic entertainment to watch from afar. Imagine the bunglers of Target, Equifax, Home Depot and all the rest trying to find and retaliate against their attackers? These corporations were clueless in the first place, so they'll be crap at finding those responsible, and worse at retaliation, and if they attack the wrong guys, presumably they'll be entitled to hit back, causing more chaos.
