Our government is acting like a child

    I just realized that is the best way to describe it. Our government resembles a child throwing a temper tantrum in a public place and we all are just trying to enjoy our meal. Most try to ignore it, others just accept it, mildly entertained but in the back of your mind you think, "isn't someone going to smack that kid?"

    Of course I'm talking about how the "Russia hacked the elections" rant is still going off. First off "Russia hacked the elections" is an extremely vague statement. No one talks about what was hacked. The last thing I remember Russia being accused of hacking that was vaguely related to the elections was Hillary's emails. Even then, they had no evidence and personally I'd like to shake the hand of whoever did do that. But they whine and whine "I got hacked... no fair! Trump had to be hacking! Do you realize how many dead people votes I bought? Stupid head Trump! I hate you!"

    Lol it's pretty hilarious but seriously, someone needs to smack that kid.

    Agreed. These crybabies are really making us look like a bunch of wimps to the world. In my opinion.

    And, again, the Russian government seems to rise above us and take the high ground. Putin won't even talk about it with our current leadership and rightly so because after 8 years he knows they are nothing but politicians not leaders. And, your right, what was hacked? How was it hacked? Governments hacking each other is not uncommon anymore and - well - it's like spying. We all do it, some better than others. Are we saying we don't hack or try to hack other governments? Try selling that line of lies to the Iranians. The Democrats could have been hacked by anyone but it suits their purpose to try to tie it to Trump in bed with the Russians causing doubt which they will probably play on further down the line. My guess is Trump wants to play fair with the Russians, if possible, and when he does the Democrats will call it a betrayal and say he has been dirty since the election. Frankly, I don't think anyone is falling for it. So, they got hacked, so what? Lots of people, companies and even governments get hacked so perhaps they need better cyber security is all it tells me. Idiots...and I am sure glad they are not in charge of my government's secrets anymore... well, in about 15 days they won't be. And, it can't come soon enough.

    Personally I think that Patriotic Americans should go into every government office, drag out the heads of the state and federal big heads out onto the streets and not let them back in. They have shown that they cannot do what the people ask them to do so they should be unemployed, tarred and feathered & humiliated in public. Then and only then will we Americans will be in charge as intended by the founding fathers.

    tarring and feathering is another of those lost arts of our forebears that not only preppers need to rediscover. ;)

    Well... thing is our education system has been used against us to betray us and the students that trusted it...

    witness all those Bernie voters for a socialist and socialism... the NAZI's were socialist...

    but for some reason that FACT is continually ignored by our education system an the students it produced...

    so what it appears we have is... indoctrinated NOT educated voters?

    and just watch Kalifornia and what is happening and has happened there...

    as several of the founders said our Constitution is for an EDUCATED and MORAL people...

    we MUST hold the education system to task and carefully examine the text books used...

    and look very carefully at the folks choosing those text books as well...

    Keep the damn Federal government out of our state educational system and I believe we can and will clean up our schools here in Idaho. However, I do not want to have anything to do with other state's educational systems, especially states like California, New York, etc... They can clean their own houses. They Feds should not be in Education at all! This includes loaning my tax dollars to young and ignorant people to go to university for a Basket Weaving degree.

    You could only be so lucky....
    At least Basket Weaving would be an actual SKILL that could be used for something....

    You are exactly right oldDude and it was a slow methodical task done right under our nose during the last 50 years.

    Our kids were born in the mid 80's & we were on top of what they were taught and if it was questionable we acted by contacting the teacher, if no love was found then we went up the ladder until were satisfacied. Washington is a very liberal state and many teachers are of that mindset which needs to be curtailed. Not only do they input their own liberal views but they tag it on many subjects. All said, teachers need to TEACH academics not bend the minds and will of their students!!!!

    If we Patriotic Americans want to stop the erosion of our future leaders then the education system needs to be a very high priority!!!

    I rarely watch tv...let alone CBC.
    $0 funding for state owned media is what they deserve.

    Russian Hacking Assessment released - you can download it as a .pdf here: Report on Russian activities and intentions in recent US elections

    I took the time to read it, but most of the content is the same few paragraphs cut and pasted and either reformatted or reworded. This is typical of the majority of Government documents I have read; microscopic content padded to produce enough volume to fit the required template. When I was in school this would get you a "D", but it's the best we can expect from our six figure SES government employees.

    No facts, just "We assess with high confidence" the results the White House wanted based on no evidence outside they feel Putin wanted Trump to win. Note that "We assess with high confidence" means "We do not have conclusive evidence and do not want to be held accountable if we are wrong and lose our cushy jobs". If evidence existed they would have said "We have conclusive evidence that Russia hacked the US election to prevent Hillary Clinton from winning". Also telling is that they don't dispute the accuracy of the leaked emails, just that they "assess" that Russia provided it to the three main distributors.
