    This is old news, and a re-release of info they had put out prior to the election last fall. In fact many states complained that the Feds where trying to hack the voting systems under the guise of testing security. In other words the states kept Obama from giving the election to Hillary!!!

    Mayor Robb E of Chicago immediatly claimed it was lack of money and requested $200 million to fight the hacking and blamed Trump for everything wrong with Chicago. He further claimed Chicago deserves the money because it is the largest city in Illinois and that's Trump's fault too.

    Businesses that make money by collecting and selling detailed records of private lives were once plainly described as "surveillance companies." Their rebranding as "social media" is the most successful deception since the Department of War became the Department of Defense.

    Yes, FB took the market down a notch today with FB losing 37B in market cap after the news on Cambridge Analytica broke. Steve Bannon was a VP of that upstanding company. You can blame FB for their lax controls, users for being duped clicking on polls, IQ tests and other data mining BS, but its a right wing company Cambridge Analytica that ended up selling that data to the Trump campaign that tells the story. But no surprise here, ethics don't apply to the Trump campaign.

    Spot on.

    Facebook is child's play when it comes to collecting data off of voluntary click-bait. They ain't got nothing on google.
