A couple of tidbits.
OPM data breach could total 32 million Americans
Office of Personnel Management Director Katherine Archuleta said her investigation isn’t complete so she can’t say whether all 32 million current and former federal employees were affected by the breach, which happened in 2014 but wasn’t discovered until this year.
“I will not give a number,” Ms. Archuleta retorted.
Can’t, or won’t? That’s potentially 10% of the entire — born/naturalized citizen, resident alien, and “undocumented” alien; man, woman, other, cis-miscellaneous, child — population of the entirely country. And she won’t limit herself to even that number.
Aren’t you glad the gov makes you get REAL ID, register firearms purchases, and otherwise databases you?
Don’t worry, though. It isn’t as though… wait…
Oh. All that data is out in the wild.
And in the those-who-will-not-learn-from-the-past [Prohibition] department:
Kids Create Salt Black Markets in Cafeterias Due to Michelle Obama’s Lunch Rules
“Perhaps the most colorful example in my district is that students have been caught bringing–and even selling–salt, pepper, and sugar in school to add taste to perceived bland and tasteless cafeteria food,” said John S. Payne, the president of Blackford County School Board of Trustees in Hartford City, Indiana.
Ah! Good little black marketeering entrepreneurs. There’s hope for America yet.
See? Government can create jobs.
