NBC News - Senate Democrats in Pennsylvania Are Being Held Cyber-Hostage (breaking story)


The Pennsylvania Senate Democrats have been hit by a ransomware attack that has locked senators and employees out of their computer network since the early morning hours of Friday, state officials told NBC News.

In a statement, Sen. Jay Costa, the Democratic leader, said the Democrats were working with law enforcement agencies and Microsoft to resolve the problem. He did not say what payment has been demanded to unlock the data, or whether the attackers had suggested any political motive.

In a ransomware attack, hackers inject a network with malware that typically encrypts important data, and then demand payment in exchange for a key that releases the data. They threaten to destroy the data if they aren't paid.

American agriculture - breadbasket to the world

Our agriculture is actually - one of the best in the world.

We could increase our food production dramatically if we needed to, but farmers don't want to see prices go down if they grow too many crops. If it weren't for the profit motive, if all we had to do was grow the food, we could probably end world hunger in one growing season.

So my point is why are the wages so low, and why are so many young people leaving farming for city jobs? We have to figure out our priorities and make it possible for people to make a good living in agriculture. Has the Democratic Party ever even looked into this? Probably not, but maybe that's why the Midwestern states turned into red states so quickly.

They're trying to save him

The way I read it, Uncle Vlad has figured out that anything he says now makes it worse for Trump. So they're keeping quiet and laying low. He thinks this is all going to blow over, but his boy is going down. We're very close to getting the kill shot now.

Trump's casinos - also laundered Russian money

I'm sure the Feds are already onto this, because there have been lots of leaks in the press already. Trump's casino in NJ (maybe elsewhere too) for a long time accepted money from shady Russian "mafia" types and paid them back as winnings from the casino games. So that's exchanging dirty money for clean, and it allowed the Russians access to the American economy. Once they had clean money they could buy US property, stocks & bonds, etc. There are plenty of other deals involving the gas & oil companies doing business in Russia, but I'm not sure if those involve Trump directly. Mostly it's Trump's billionaire buddies that are implicated.

Dear Mr. Trump

You may not use any of our hard-earned tax dollars to pay for your fucking idiotic wall.
You want a wall, you pay for it with your own untaxed dollars.
Thank you,

Make sure you apply for unemployment benefits immediately

This is a terrible predicament and I feel very bad for you. But be sure to make those fuckers pay every cent they owe you. Have they paid you for your vacation? You're allowed vacation & holidays if you work full-time, so they have to pay you for them. The Unemployment office is (maybe) not a pleasant experience, but don't delay going. Get signed up for the benefits your taxes support.

Good luck and God Bless!
