Re: social media data hoovering is an obvious security risk

"I guess the Trump feed is Ok as he reminds you a lot of McCarthy and Nixon right?"

Not even REMOTELY close. Nixon was a liberal republican who started the EPA and tried to regulate the economy through price/wage freezes. McCarthy was more like the P.C. gang nowadays with "guilt by accusation". The modern-day McCarthy-ism includes various smear tactics LIKE leaking classified and private information like a sieve to the willing press corps, AHD holding sham impeachments for non-crimes based on opinions and heresay, with no actual DUE PROCESS (like the accused being able to face and cross-examine his accuser, produce his own witnesses, etc.).

But hey, you've got the "pandering to the perception" part nailed in the quote I included at the top. Trump is actually the OPPOSITE of that. "Drain the swamp"
