    I'm really sick of these, especially the ones that try to rip off seniors.

    The federal government is the biggest scam artist in the nation. Obamacare, S.S., the "bailout" the "stimulus package" the IRS scandal, fast and furious cover-ups, Benghazi scam and on and on it goes!

    I've never heard the term "ransomware," but it's real. My neighbor got hit a few months ago and came to me asking for help. I lent him my laptop so he could Google for instructions on how to remove the ransomware from his computer. He started at 7:30pm and finished around 2:00am. This stuff is bad, bad, bad. People who prey on seniors remind me that evil is real and it exists in the world.
