Blood spilled from another US high school shooting has yet to dry – and video games are already being blamed

Equifax hack worse than previously thought: Biz kissed goodbye to card expiry dates, tax IDs etc


Re: Things will never change

There's a hole in the American legislature process that allows virtually all of the external lobbyist and internal party pressure crap. The same thing that has helped contribute to polarizing partisan politics


Easy fix if anyone ever gets the guts to donate right thing.

FCC douses America's net neutrality in gas, tosses over a lit match


Another sham appointee of Trump doing what they came to do: destroy any and all regulation, and hand over the keys to the private sector. Your concerns and any adverse impacts need not be considered.

No, the real truth is that fossil fuels are just peachy, America's problems are due to lazy immoral immigrants, and Putin is a helluva good guy who we really need to get closer to.

WannaCrypt outbreak contained as hunt for masterminds kicks in


Why do the terms manufactured crisis and distraction pop into my mind? The fact I even have to wonder says a lot about the current state of affairs.
