All The President’s Men

I’m just about finished reading ‘All The President’s Men’ — the comparisons between 1972-’73 and today are numerous. Watergate was a domestic problem, while Russiagate is emblematic of both foreign and domestic issues. Senators Ted Kennedy and Sam Ervin initiated hearings on Watergate. Both the FBI and Justice Dept. contributed to the break-in investigation but it was diligence on WaPo reporters Woodward & Bernstein’s part as well as other reporters, the Pentagon Papers, Grand Jury findings and leaks which led to the Nixon Administration’s downfall.

Don’t blame Apache.. Take responsibility

The source is liable!

Equifax blaming Apache’s Struts for the breach is not productive. How did they implement the product? What is the code used for? Open source, in many instances and on several layers, has reporting requirements, validity checking, and logs. It’s not perfect. MVC stuff is prone to logistical errors, like all software … #opensource

Bernie is asking for ideas on Medicare for all

My idea for getting young people involved in contributing to the future of Medicare for all:

” Use a card system where a cash portion (like $1 for every $100 spent) is automatically allocated from the transaction directly to an individual’s GoFundMe whenever one physically shops at a grocery store or market. If young people do this they are basically paying other people’s healthcare when the GoFundMe is designated as being medical in nature. It’s not single payer per se but is a great example/starting point of what single payer can be. “
