    State AGs investigating Experian subsidiary’s data breach (networkworld.com)

    “A group of state attorneys general in the U.S. is launching an investigation into a recently disclosed data breach of 200 million personal records at a subsidiary of credit monitoring firm Experian. …”

      i have wondered if we haven’t all been exposed? consider that Target had what 80 million customers data exposed? and add the 200 million from Experian’s exposure, exactly what remains thats secure? and exactly how will any business know who they are dealing with any more? have they been so short sighted that they no longer can have any confidence that they are actually dealing with a real customer as opposed to a fraudster?

      • Derektheunder says:

        Well, those of us who have filed our taxes in South Carolina in the last 16 years can be pretty sure of exposure.

      • willid3 says:

        along with most other states. its getting hard to tell which company has done more to expose us. and it does seem like the government is just trying to catch up

    Don’t forget Dennis Gartman…

    Its a shame anyone taking a coffee break at 11am last Friday missed perhaps the most significant selling opportunity of their career.

    • VennData says:

      How’s that sell everything feel now Gartman?

      ROFL. “Technical Analysis” mumbo jumbo.

      Anyone who pays for his “insights” deserves to lose money on them.

      • HighSeas says:

        I know in the past you could sign up for the Gartman Letter thru an ad on the CNBC site. Could this be why they insert “esteemed” or “renowned” before his name when he’s on air? Should CNBC not disclose this potential conflict? He’s treated differently than most guests.

    Also time to increase fines on Obamacare deadbeats.

    Image these deadbeats showing up in emergency rooms over the coming years. I want those stories told. Those are the discussions, the shame of going to ER and being a finepayer. Journalists need to catch the look on the faces of injured, sick deadbeats who avoided Obamacare, they way unpatriotic weaklings avoided the draft in the past. Expose them. ER security camers will be loaded with shots of these people who don’t support the heathcare system that’s legally obligated to be there for them.

    Freeloaders on our system that rightly, justly does not refuse admittance to ERs are sick, irresponsible, unprincipled and unpatriotic.

    We need to stay tough on these lawbreakers and raise the stakes, increase the penalties, dun their wages, withhold tax refunds, ding their credit reports.

    These are the bad guys, the real riffraff leaching on American society.

    Obamacare Draft Dodgers. Let’s do ‘em real hard. Law and order.
