  1. Good article, Ben.

    Yes, Seymore Klearly is right on top of things.

    Another tip: When possible on your social media accounts – – – use two-factor authentication.

  2. Rise and Shine Veterans call your Senators and Representative passed a New Disabled Benefit Law who is Disabled Veterans who is Disabled Veterans who is collected 100 percent service connected definitely need to have G4implants by a Cosmetic Dentistry Dentist that know how to put in G4implants because their is not one works for a Veteran Medical Center plus their isn’t not one has a contract with Veteran Affairs Admistratation but they have a Private Clinics know how to put in G4implants unfortunately they want all the money upfront but my belief as a Veteran myself firm belief the money should come From the Federal Government because three quarters of the Disabled Veterans who is collected 100 percent service connected can’t even afford to get a loan to get the G4implants so please Veterans who is reading this Help the Disabled Veterans who is collected 100 percent service connected….Semper Fi.

  3. I NEVER “open” anything from someone I don’t know!
    My “passwords” are a conglomeration of many numbers and letters! HELL, I had to write them down, so I could “remember them”!
    Seymore definitely is on top of things, which have given us protection from many facits of what we “need to know!”
    Thank You, Seymore Klearly! You are one of the best people on this site!

    • elf…I also have a book with them all written down..LOL..But am going to rip those pages out and redo them again
      And I will second your remark
      Thank You, Seymore Klearly! You are one of the best people on this site!

  4. Thanks SeymoreKlearly, even though I only have a tablet, and I never put any info on it, other than email, I am changing everything. You’re accurate on everything else. God Bless the Veterans and their families. We in for a ride.

  5. Y’all want the telephone number to Washington D.C., which (after a couple of prompts) will put you through to your Senator and/or Congressperson?
    It’s
    (202) 224-3121

    I just told my congressman, Ron DeSantis, (R-Fl) to put in a Bill to force ALL of Congress to use the Veterans Administration Healthcare System!

    • @Crazy elf- May want to specify that the congress critters must utilize their own respective home state VAMC’s in order to potentially act as another layer to that onion of accountability? No special flakes treatment either. Same lines and same purple team leader named Large Marge, same lab rat drawing blood next to a Veteran getting potentially infected with MRSA, Hep A/B/C, or even HIV.

      It will never happen to those self-absorbed asshats.

      • @Namnibor – – – “May want to specify that the congress critters must utilize their own respective home state VAMC’s . . . ”

        Great idea !!! May have to try to work that into “Fix the Damn Broken VA” in the future.

      • namnibor,
        They should be, when in Washington D.C., forced to use the D.C. VHA! When in their home state, use the closest VA clinic, which doesn’t provide any services, other than “lab work” an MAYBE a “physicians assistant!”
        Maybe that would “enlighten the asswipes”! But, I seriously doubt it!

  6. Most of them would get travel and lodging pay, with food…lots of food. I’m saying if a congressman has to go more than 40 miles…He will get paid. He will get Choice, a good Choice. Rules don’t apply for Them. I can’t see anyone that doesn’t ABSOLUTELY have to go to the VA, going there. Hopefully, that won’t light up those that feel differently.

  7. I used the phone number I gave earlier to contact “Senator Bill Nelson’s office in Washington D.C.!”
    Nelson was one of the asswipes which helped pass the bill giving VA loads of taxpayers monies. He told me exactly what Seymore had uncovered over everything being for the VA, and NOT for the Veterans! Only, the asswipe wouldn’t listen to what I had to say.
    Nelson was proud he got the bill pushed through. Fucking asswipe!
    I hung up on the asshole!
    This is exactly why “We the People” are getting pissed at both fuckin houses in Congress!
    Every one of these reprobates need to use the VA or ACA for their healthcare! Let them experience the horrendous healthcare first hand!
    Fuck ALL the asshole in Washington D.C.!

    • P.S.
      My wife actually got to speak to Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fl.). Man, did she give him an earful.
      She told the punk, he really didn’t want to speak to me! Which is exactly what I said later to my wife!
      Because, the time I did talk to his interns, I gave lots of information, ie: VA corruption, waste, Fraud and abuse!
      My wife said he didn’t know about any of the shit.
      In my opinion, Ron DeSantis is nothing more than a fucking punk, wasting air and spending taxpayers monies recklessly!

  8. Passwords are a joke. I spent 30 years in data processing as a programmer. If i want to hack anyone “which I dont” passwords are a minor inconvenience to an experienced hacker.

    Biometetric data coupled with a truely secure network will take time to hack, but it can still be done.

    I know I know most services want you to change your pword every so often but this is just a warm fuzzy and busy work.

    I have a VERY secure password, upper & lower case numbers special characters and no words from a dictionary, very secure means it may take an experienced hacker a couple hours longer to get after me if they want me.

    Hell Ben with as many people you piss off I can pretty much guarantee you that you have been hacked more than once and dont even know and probably never will know.

    I know this bit of info probably does not make anyone feel better but it is the way things are.

    If you want to be hack proof go lights out. Then you just have to be careful of mail, phone and door to door scams and every things else the crooks dream up.

    In my opinion This world SUCKS and it is only getting worse.l

    • “Bill”,
      “In my opinion This world SUCKS and it is only getting worse!”

      I agree!
      Yet IF you want it to get better, as millions of true PATRIOTS want, then the time for “pacified resistance” IS over, IF OUR GOVERNMENT doesn’t start working for “We the People”, instead of lining their pockets with OUR monies!
      Our “Constitutional Republic” is in mortal danger of becoming the next Venezuela!

      • I have to disagree in that I do not think this “world sucks” in as much as the “people can often suck” occupying this blue marble called earth.

        This ‘world” would be much better with many more cats and dogs and less humans. There would have to be the necessary humans left on earth to change the insane amount of litter boxes and to of course, serve the cat when it served the cat’s best interests.
        However, my brother’s dogs fight over eating the crunchy cat-litter-coated cat shit right out of the cat box when he lets the dogs in. He has 5 cats. In that case, less humans could even be utilized by using the dogs to recycle the cat shit.
        I’ve given this way too much thought…

        Just remember, you can give someone a real ‘Payday’ or payback, by making your very own crunchy cat-litter-coated-cat-shit-bars to give to your friendly VA intake receptionist with a smile as they call your number…

      • Or to skip the cat shit part but still go with a rancid smell for the payback, consider the longevity and always giving in Winter and Summer a handful of Limburger Cheese tossed down an enemy’s car defrost air vents.

        It’s a gift that will keep giving. So is cat shit.

    • Put up or shut up.

      Put your money where your mouth is Bill. Hack me!!

      Since clearly you did not read and understand the warning.

      Good Luck!

  9. I read your warning however you did not read what Pi said. I DO NOT HACK. Could I, maybe but since i have never done it to anyone that is up in the air. I used the brain cell between my ears to try and do things for good.

    I perfer not to spend my time looking for all the bad in this world.

    I have gone lights out except for my samsung phone.

    Btw I have forgotten more about computer programming and computer technology then you have ever known.

    • In other words you can’t hack anyone or anything period.

      All show and no go.

      As for everything you claim you forgot from your course in data entry. Can’t be much, except for one of the important parts about how everyone needs to update their passwords on a regular basis. Like I have said before Billy B. good luck.

      As for you coming on here claiming that changing your passwords is useless. You are nothing but a troll Billy B.

      Everyone this is a serious warning and everyone should change their passwords.

      • @Seymore Klearly – – – This Bill isn’t me. No confusion on my end. And, I don’t have the skills to hack, but I’d be able if I was interested in hacking, because I could easily learn it. Thought I’d let everyone know that this Bill is NOT me. Not my style, and I’m not a troll. – – – Nutter.

      • Didn’t think it was you ANutterVet!

        Just the same troll that keeps passing through the pages as “Bill B.” in the past.

      • @Seymore Klearly – – – I was thinking that it was only a coincidence, but I only wanted all to know that this dude (Bill) isn’t me. Don’t like illegal hackers, and trolls. Thanks. – – – Nutter.

  10. @Bill, you appear to be proud of your knowledge. Hope you’re doing something good with that knowledge. You are a bit judgemental, arrogant, and we all know; It’s easy to be brave from a distance. Good luck, Bill

    • Jo3n,

      Bill could hack his way out of a paper bag with a razor blade. He has no skills and he has already proven that with what he has said about hacking. He also has never worked in any IT positions anywhere he has demonstrated that with his lack of knowledge in his statements.

      If he has taken any post high school course work it only involved what paperwork to file if his parents try to evict him from the basement.

    • Glad to hear it Crazy Elf,

      It does add to peace of mind. It is great to hear you wife provides IT support. Although it is a good skill to learn.

  11. @SeymoreKlearly, I do believe, Bill is a lonely person. Male or female, unsure. One of those Holier than thou, wants to be in charge, kinda sad.

    • Pretty good description of him. Basically he suffers from a sever case of Cartman Syndrome.

  12. I do not care if somebody reads my emails.

    It is absolute insanity to believe that anything encoded by a computer, then transmitted via a multitude of transmission media, fiber optics, radio waves and variations therof, including satellite transmission, through a multitude of unknowable computers, crossing perhaps thousands of miles irregardless of country bourders or Earth’s atmosphere and is meant to be ultimately decoded by ONLY the pair of eyes you choose, will in fact only be seen in that fantastic journey by just those two eyes….

    Is that what you really believe happens when you have a magic password?

    There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that I EVER type into an electronic device that I believe will not be revealled to ANYONE so bent on seeing it. I choose not to put anything down that I give a shit about and my credit is already three marks lower than the absolute vacuum of outer space so good luck trying to use account numbers of mine to do anything over and above an illicit pizza hut delivery lolz.

    I began programming before computers were in homes. The fed government identified me as a gifted pre-asshole child and paid a man to come to our school with a government computer to teach me how to program twice a week. My last job was as a motion control programmer programming the control systems of advanced robotic machinery. My last large project was developed using ANSI C type code written on top of a deterministic real time operating system operating five axis of motion control simultaneously and in coordinated fashion. No small task.

    I am 100% certain that if it is typed into a computer it is like a plum on a tree for anyone wanting to pluck it, and there aint no sequence of ANSI unicode that will ever change that because there are people out there like me who know how to write packet drivers that control the very circuitry of the ethernet device, or whatever newest device there is which exists to transmit data, that at some point it was a human that created the ability for you to store data on your device. At some hardware level the data MUST be known in order to correctly translate the packets between Motorola and Intel chips (Big Endian/Little Endian number formats) as well as a litany of other obscure electronic details. It is a human that must understand how this all works and that species has just never been good at keeping secrets…

    Therefor I discard with the idea of typing anything I want secret. If you type it, consider it public.

  13. Thank you Ben and Seymore for reminding us the dangers of using the internet. I try every few months or so to change passwords on e-mail and other accounts. Thanks again.
