November 30, 2017 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Computer Security Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For November 30, 2017 NBC is living up to its acronym of “Nothing But Cack” as more women are coming forward to reveal what a complete pervert Matt Lauer appears to be while top executives are claiming that they had no idea his sexual harassment was going on under their watch (Lack and Zucker were either asleep at the switch or chose to ignore and conceal his perversions); only in America can a pervert fired for sexual harassment have the nerve to want to sue his employer for $30 million (good luck on that one Matt); time to add another bargaining chip to the DACA debate as that multiple deported scumbag who killed Kate Steinle instead of being turned over to ICE for another deportation was found not guilty—Kate’s Law while we must double down on the end to “chain migration” based on family relationship as opposed to merit and need based criteria as the Trump Administration released data on the 7.3 million immigrants who were given priority because family members however distant were in the country; HuffPost has stooped to all time low alleging that McCain now supports the tax cut bill because he is dying of brain cancer and wants his estate to be passed tax free to his heirs (shame on you Ashley Feinberg); almost a stuck record or a gruesome  remake of Groundhog Day, Chicago style,  the carnage in Chicago continued unabated with total shootings by mostly minorities against mostly minorities in 2017 through November 28 increasing to 3351  of whom 583 have died while nothing is being done to hinder or prevent the killings of minorities by minorities.
