On June 23, 2015, I posted a piece entitled "Kimba" The White Lion. I make it a point not to, generally, comment on comments.

I am no longer interested in her opinion because, after debating long and hard, I finally came to realize that, despite her vociferous justifications for it, her op
Our politicians want us to think that most large scale computer hacking is done by nation-states. They love to blame China or Iran or Russia but in fact they are lying to you. They don't want you to know that it doesn't take a nation-state to hack into banks to steal $300 million to $1 billion, which is what hackers have stolen from our banks.
