NJ,

It's an unfortunate state of affairs. My grim take is that, while Republican lawmakers sell our privacy out happily and openly, most Democrats go along in the shadows whoring for money from the same interests. Given that an entire generation has grown up thinking that having their private information commoditized is a normal situation, It will take a herculean effort to change it. I really don't see that happening since, with the exception of a few people like Elizabeth Warren, the issue doesn't even seem to be a priority for national politicians.

If anyone reading this hasn't already gone to the Equifax website set up specifically for checking whether your data was compromised, I would do so immediately. Mine was. They offer a free year of credit monitoring to those that turn up affected. The whole process took about six minutes. Experts vary in their advice about what you should do if you're affected. Paid credit monitoring is not cheap ($120-$300/year). The free credit monitoring, though temporary, is kind of a no brainer. Freezing your credit reports with all three agencies could work. Free monitoring of your own credit reports monthly would work for people who are disciplined at doing things like that. Doing nothing is universally considered a bad idea by those in the know.

I just approved a picture of a woman giving a blow job.

She was holding a stethoscope against his shaft, but the earpieces were not in her ears...

Is this something kind of new technique I don't know about?

...in the wake of the recent news of the humongous breach of equifax's data (more than half the public in the usa who have and use any credit, as well as a couple other countries' citizens)....reports come out that, mere hours before the major breach (discovered in july) was broken and then reported, there was testimony at a congressional hearing last week to **further loosen** "consumer" protection rules governing the three major credit reporting bureaus.

(as if we actually pay the bureaus to compile, use, and sell our personal data--not!!!!)

the testimony asserts that loosening the protections offered by capping the industry's exposure to class action lawsuits "would provide economic stability"

for whom?

wtf.

to be fair KJ, i have known plenty of women (actually when i was younger and actively dating/going out on girls nights with a bunch of other women in my age group)....who used the ghosting/poof thing. plus giving out fake numbers galore. while i wouldn't say it was weighted equally, there were enough women doing the "poof" thing that it wasn't all or even mostly men. it's just now with the advent of online everything that "poof"-ing has become what....the new buzzword? it is what it is...meh. people will be people....rude at times.

my WTF of the moment---all the corporations/companies soliciting "donations" to help irma and harvey victims. cashiers everywhere i paid for anything the last week or so. e mails from companies completely disconnected (airline rewards e mail: earn miles for your generosity!)

maybe i am just too jaded/skeptical. i ain't giving anyone my money ***except*** directly to salvation army or red cross.

i feel like all those other companies are going to "skim" fees/percentages off of any donations they receive.

best way to ensure the funds do the most good, IMO: donate to the charities you know are on the ground and use the highest cents out of every dollar to actually help those who most need it.

stepping off soap box. the e mail from the mileage rewards club just kinda put me over the top today.

WTF - off and on all morning the Today Show hosts have been talking about dating & ghosting. So what, now that both genders do it there is a cool name for it. Haven't guys (some not all) been using this technique forever? He's just not that into you, and apparently neither is she !

@Current: GEEZ! What a horrible, awful way to die!!! But then I guess when you're a Moron it sorta makes sense? And he truly lived the spirit of Burning Man in its most literal interpretation.

A 41 year old man was killed when he ran into the giant fire at the end of the Burning Man festival after successfully dodging a number of "rangers" attempting to tackle him. The man was pulled out of the fire by staff in fire resistant gear and flown to a burn center in California where he died.

It's not clear at this time whether the man was merely a Moron who tripped while evading the rangers or was a suicidal narcissistic Moron attempting to kill himself.

I wish. We joined the N California Tea party to protest Obamacare knowing that it would do serious financial harm to us our children and our business.

The Stalinists came in force and attacked with all the power of the corrupt goverment that is America. The IRS audited everyone and all their families and businesses seizing all of their bank accounts at the same time. OSHS came into those who had business and found reasons to close down those business for months. The FBI let everyone in town know that the member where under investigation for something bad.

The local Democratic operatives targeted everyone who had a retail business picketed them and chased away their customers.

But we had the brains not to donate online or with a check. We gave cash and made sure we did not appear on any member lists. We did not receive emails on Gmail so we where spared.

If only beauty would spare us..but we are paying close to 3 grand a month for useless health insurance and its going to get much worst next year.
