Language, for one. ‚ÄúWe‚Äôre going to impeach this motherf****r!‚ÄĚ is practically the first thing her squad-mate said upon entering Congress.¬†The whole idea of a ‚Äúsquad‚ÄĚ is ridiculous, though granted, that is a media concoction, not hers.

The taxpayers in NY are not thrilled that she scuttled the Amazon deal. Amazon is that big company that employs a lot of people who thereafter pay taxes.

Of course, that is also a media concoction, since she had nothing directly to do with the Amazon deal.

But my question was not about her, but about Equifax.

If a company collects data on you without permission, to make a profit off your data, and then loses it by accidentally exposing that data to more nefarious players, was Space Merchant saying that they should not be financially liable?

There is a whole lot I do not like what she has to say, especially when we live in a world where a message can be molded into something to commit acts that pin people against each other and or victim. What @TrueTomHarley mentioned is one of said things. Among all things, AoC is a Statist, among the fold that her and such ones want to help society by means of security and safety by prying off the freedoms people have, as some would say, the giving away of liberties by means of promises that never come and the continuous siphoning of said liberties continues and it never ending and it continues to take and never gives. Once power takes something, it does not give back what is taken. This is concerning the Green New Deal that not a whole lot of people agree with, more so, evening stating that the world would end in 12 years due to climate change with no evidence to back up this claim of hers, which was a willful one and not out of pure mistake. To add on to what Tom said regarding Amazon, it costed 25,000 people employment and such ones affected paint her as the villain.

Again, this had nothing to do with her. The question was about Equifax. You said you not only disagree [with what she was saying about Equifax, I assumed] and that you also didn't like her.

My original response was in no connection with Equifax, more so, of her history and how convoluted she can be and or confusing with what action she takes, granted she is a Statist.

As for Equifax however in regards to the topic just hours after her tweet she took back what she said. The tweet in question is the one above in regards to those who had fallen victim with the whole Equifax ordeal due to the 2017 data leak, and she rode that claim of which she brought up only to apologize later on. Only $31 mil has been set for payment, the more people who moves in to claim, the less others will get until there is nothing left, so essentially it isn't free money for all. In addition to that, her update in regards to credit is odd as well. That bar for $125 is not static either

That being said, it is extremely difficult to trust Ms.Cortez or a Statist for that matter, granted of what we had seen so far.

My wife's data was compromised, and she followed the steps that Equifax sent, including locking the data of all three of the big credit agencies making it very difficult to get new credit and nearly impossible for others to get credit using her name. But she has also been directed, not by Equifax, nor by AOC, but by the legal "Settlement Administrator" to go to the site they have set up:

    Hello guest!

There had been some confusion in 2017, which some persons took advantage of to get data about victims. But this time, it's the Settlement Administrator on the "Official Equifax Data Breach Settlement" site that still says the following, as of this week:

In September of 2017, Equifax announced it experienced a data breach, which impacted the personal information of approximately 147 million people. A federal court is considering a proposed class action settlement submitted on July 22, 2019, that, if approved by the Court, would resolve lawsuits brought by consumers after the data breach. Equifax denies any wrongdoing, and no judgment or finding of wrongdoing has been made.

[File a Claim]

1. Free Credit Monitoring or $125 Cash Payment. You can get free credit monitoring services. Or, if you already have credit monitoring services, you can request a $125 cash payment.

  • At least 4 years of three-bureau credit monitoring, offered through Experian. You can also get up to 6 more years of free one-bureau credit monitoring through Equifax.

  • If you already have credit monitoring services that will continue for at least 6 more months, you may be eligible for a cash payment of $125.

If the amounts currently in negotiation are approved, those numbers will evidently hold, in addition to amounts up to $20,000 if you have been fighting identity theft and can prove expeditures.

This was why my question had nothing to do with the politicians who have pointed this out. Around here politicians are often pointing out some things that are probably designed to get their name out there and try to create a little bit of goodwill. We get free beach passes and park passes and job fair announcements from our "Representatives" and lots of schedules we are supposed to stick on our refrigerators including special pickups for various types of recycling and a host of other things. I see them all the time, but still can't tell you who my State or Congressional representatives are. I know the names of the two US Senators from my state, but no one else in spite of their frequent door-to-door activities.

I locked mine long ago, and yes, it is a pain. I almost always forget that I have done it, and usually forget how to unlock it‚ÄĒthough I am getting better. The greatest (though not only) reason that the scoundrels want to steal your info is so they can drain you¬†dry, and a credit freeze makes that much less likely.

I think what needs to happen is that AOC be appointed CEO of Equifax.

By the way, the Green Deal that she floated before Congress that was largely shouted down, has been adopted independently, even enhanced, by Andrew Cuomo, the NYS governor. He is advertising that his new law will make New York, not only the greenest place in the country, but probably in the world. 70% of all power to be derived from windmills by 2030, up from the present 20% or so. All emissions of any sort are to be monitored.

I hear that @James Thomas Rook Jr. has signed on as the Chief Engineer.

There is a huge generational divide, not only on climate change, but on democracy. The young are far more likely to think climate change is the prime threat to life, while the older tend to be less concerned, often thinking it is¬†a political plot of the left. To be sure, AOC wants to go left, and a very large‚ÄĒis the the majority?‚ÄĒof the young want to go there with her.¬†

It will always be the case when the gap between rich and poor grows too great. The poor are not going to be students of economics‚ÄĒthey‚Äôre poor, and preoccupied with survival. All they know is that whatever the system may be, it is not working for them, and they lose patience as they see things getting, not less equitable, but more.

      On September 7, 2017, Equifax, one of the three main credit reporting agencies, announced a massive data¬†security¬†breach that exposed vital personal identification data¬†‚ÄĒ including¬†names, addresses, birth¬†dates, and¬†Social Security numbers¬†on as many as 143 million consumers, roughly 55% of Americans age 18 and older.1
      This data breach was especially egregious because the company reportedly first learned of the breach on July 29¬†and waited roughly six weeks before making it public¬†(hackers¬†first¬†gained access between mid-May and July)¬†and¬†three senior Equifax executives¬†reportedly¬†sold shares of the company worth nearly $2 million before¬†the breach was¬†announced.¬†Moreover, consumers don't¬†choose¬†to do business¬†or share their data¬†with Equifax; rather, Equifax¬†‚ÄĒ¬†along with TransUnion and Experian, the other two major credit reporting agencies¬†‚ÄĒ¬†unilaterally monitors the financial health of consumers and supplies that data to potential lenders¬†without a consumer's approval or consent.2
      Equifax has faced widespread criticism following its disclosure of the hack, both for the breach itself and for its response, particularly the website it established for consumers to check if they may have been affected. Both the FBI and Congress are investigating the breach.3 In the meantime, here are answers to questions you might have.
      1. What's the deal with the website Equifax has set up for consumers?
      Equifax has set up a website,¬†equifaxsecurity2017.com,¬†where consumers can check if they've been affected by the breach. Once on the site, click¬†on¬†the button "Potential¬†Impact" at the bottom of the main page. You then need to click on "Check Potential Impact," where you will be asked to provide your last name and the last six digits of your Social Security number¬†‚ÄĒ¬†a request that was widely mocked on social media as being too intrusive when the standard request is for only the last four digits.
      Equifax has stated that regardless of whether your information may have been affected, everyone has the option to sign up on the website for one free year of credit monitoring and identify theft protection. You can do so by clicking the "Enroll" button at the bottom of the screen. Note: Just clicking this button does not mean you're actually enrolled, however. You must follow the instructions to go through an actual enrollment process with TrustedID Premier to officially enroll.
      More wrath was directed at Equifax when some eagle-eyed observers noted thatenrolling in the free year of credit protection with TrustedID Premier meant that consumers gave up the right to join any class-action lawsuit against the company and agreed to be bound by arbitration. But an Equifax spokesperson has since stated that the binding arbitration clause related only to the one year of free credit monitoring and not the breach itself; Equifax has since removed that language from its site.4
      2. What is TrustedID Premier?
      Equifax's response to the data breach is to offer consumers one free year of credit file monitoring services through TrustedID Premier. This includes monitoring reports generated by Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion; the ability to lock and unlock Equifax credit reports with a credit freeze; identity theft insurance; and Social Security number monitoring.
      Consumers who choose to enroll in this service will need to provide a valid email address and additional information to verify their identity. A few days after enrolling, consumers will receive an email with a link to activate TrustedID Premier. The enrollment period ends November 21. After the one free year is up, consumers will not be automatically charged or enrolled in further monitoring; they will need to sign up again if they so choose (some initial reports stated that consumers would be automatically re-enrolled after the first year).5
      3. What other steps can I take?
      It is always a good idea to monitor your own personal information and be on the lookout for identity theft. Here are specific additional steps you can take:
      Fraud alerts: Your first step should be to establish fraud alerts with the three major credit reporting agencies. This will alert you if someone tries to apply for credit in your name. You can also set up fraud alerts for your credit and debit cards. Credit freezes: A credit freeze will lock your credit files so that only companies you already do business with will have access to them. This means that if a thief shows up at a faraway bank and tries to apply for credit in your name using your address and Social Security number, the bank won't be able to access your credit report. (However, a credit freeze won't prevent a thief from making changes to your existing accounts.) Initially, consumers who tried to set up credit freezes with Equifax discovered they had to pay for it, but after a public thrashing Equifax announced that it would waive all fees for the next 30 days (starting September 12) for consumers who want to freeze their Equifax credit files.6 Before freezing your credit reports, though, it's wise to check them first. Also keep in mind that if you want to apply for credit with a new financial institution in the future, or you are opening a new bank account, applying for a job, renting an apartment, or buying insurance, you will need to unlock or "thaw" the credit freeze. Credit reports: You can obtain a free copy of your credit report from each of the major credit agencies once every 12 months by requesting the reports at annualcreditreport.com or by calling toll-free 877-322-8228. Because the Equifax breach could have long-term consequences, it's a good idea to start checking your report as part of your regular financial routine for the next few years. Bank and credit card statements: Review your financial statements regularly and look for any transaction that seems amiss. Take advantage of any alert features so that you are notified when suspicious activity is detected. Your vigilance is an essential tool in fighting identity theft.  4. How can I get more information from Equifax? 
      Consumers with additional questions for Equifax can call the company'sdedicated call center at 866-447-7559. The call center is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. Eastern time. Equifax said it is experiencing high call volumes but is working diligently to respond to all consumers.7

      Seize the day!¬†Hope you didn‚Äôt think the Equifax debacle was over, because scammers are in it for the long haul, milking the massive data breach for all it‚Äôs worth. Currently, they‚Äôre¬†calling¬†credit holders pretending to be with the beleaguered company (but we wouldn‚Äôt be surprised to see email and text solicitations soon as well). The opportunists claim they must ‚Äúvalidate your account information‚ÄĚ‚ÄĒand they‚Äôre good impersonators, so even if the number on your caller ID says ‚ÄúEquifax,‚ÄĚ hang up! The company won‚Äôt be calling or emailing you out of the blue; they‚Äôve got their¬†hands full¬†with millions of angry customers and an FTC investigation that we hope leads to some real action against any company that fails to protect customer data. At any rate, for¬†real¬†info on how to protect¬†your¬†info from the breach, click¬†here.

      B√Ętissons chaque but de notre vie avec amour
      L'homme à toujours chercher le sens véritable de l'amour. L'homme réfléchissant à cette vertu, il sépara cette qualité en trois phases et uni en une seule.  Les millénaires passèrent et l'homme à compris que les trois phases de l'amour sont des étapes que l'on ne peut trépasser.
      La premi√®re partie est appel√©" L'√Čros."
      L'√©ros fut le premier chemin que Dieu entama dans son Esprit ( pens√©e en action) (verbe) int√©rieur avant de faire ce monde magnifique que nous vivons. L'√Čros est le feu qui nous anime dans le d√©but d'une pens√©e qui nous traverse l'esprit.
      L'Amour éros est une énergie très puissante, car d'elle, d'une seule image non réalisée, l'éros active cette image en rêve, uni à notre pensée et propulse dans notre vision, un rêve ultime qui nous pousse à chercher au fond de nous, le sentiment qui nous anime puissamment.
      Nous recherchons en nous d'autres images pour connaitre d'avantage cette vibration qui se manifeste, telle un feu ardent.
      D'un rêve, l'amour de ce but te pousse à créer et fonder ce rêve dans ta réalité, construire le but ultime de ta vie.
      La flamme de Yah, s'anime en toi ( Chant de Salomon)
      Le désir sexuelle ne fait pas parti de cet Amour.
      L'√Čros te propulse dans tout les c√īt√©s des variantes d'un but non r√©alis√©, dont tu ne connais point comment construire ce but qui s'anime en toi; et m√™me comment pourrais-je r√©aliser ce but?
      Quand le¬†r√™ve d'un projet d'avenir¬†est dans l'√Čros, il ne faut pas qu'il devienne en nous une obsession intense. Nous ne savons pas comment contr√īler notre feu int√©rieur de ce but, de cette¬†vision qui anime nos pens√©es, jour apr√®s jour¬†et souvent dans les images de notre sommeil, elles peuvent envahir nos nuits.
      L'amour " √Čros" nous confrontes √† plusieurs d√©sirs qui nous anime et qu'avec le temps nous apprenons √† assembler le casse t√™te de la r√©alisation de notre vie, les pi√®ces ma√ģtresses de notre r√™ve qui nous poussent sans cesse √† trouver les outils et l'instructions n√©cessaires √† notre cheminement qui s'accomplit pendant une grande p√©riode de notre vie, pour atteindre l'objectif premier de notre vie, le vrai but que nous voulons accomplir.
      Quand notre but est assemblé, telle un film intérieur, de sa première image (début), à son dénouement et cela jusqu'à son accomplissement , alors notre rêve se voit construit dans notre esprit alors nous sommes prêt; nous pouvons commencer la deuxième étapes de l'amour qui construit notre but.
      L'AMOUR PHILIA UNE √ČTAPE TR√ąS IMPORTANTE DE L'AMOUR
      La connaissance de l'amour apporte à réaliser le rêve de notre but vers la réalisation de notre projet en ce monde au bonheur de chacun.
      Les étapes de réalisation de chaque but, doit être construit avec l'Amour philia à (suivre)...

      Pour guérir notre personnalité, une petite recette intérieure doit être préparé avec minutie et avec conviction, en voici la composition:
      En premier, prend le temps de prendre conscience de l'amour que tu t'attribues à toi même. L'amour désintéressé, celle qui te lie en toi le mérite vrai de la beauté intérieure, celle de la lumière qui vibre dans ton coeur. Cette amour doit être le fondement de ta personnalité, car plus tu consacres le temps nécessaire à épanouir tes forces et que tu perpétues cette puissance universelle envers autrui. Ainsi, tu t'élèveras au-dessus de la souffrance et Il te guidera vers le chemin de l'accomplissement de ta vie.
      En deuxi√®me, prend le temps de travailler la qualit√© de la patience. La patience est une vertu primordiale √† ta personnalit√©, car elle te fait comprendre les √©tapes de la vie et que pas √† pas, une chose √† la fois tu redresseras tes faiblesses. La patience te guidera vers la ma√ģtrise des √©tapes √† la victoire des buts, que tu entreprends. Cette vertu t'aidera √† accepter les erreurs de ta personne et de celle des autres.
      Troisi√®mement, trouve en toi la joie de vivre. La joie est une petite qualit√© √† quatre lettres. Elle se situe en toi, car chaque moment de ton quotidien elle se manifeste et elle vibre de tout ton √™tre. Elle se manifeste, dans les moments o√Ļ tu vois un coucher de soleil √©blouissant, dans les activit√©s avec tes amis qui te sont ch√®re. Quand tu r√©ussis un travail qui t'inspire et que tu r√©ussis l'accomplissement avec brio. √Ä plusieurs moment la joie se manifeste et tu dois prendre conscience de ces moments, car il font parti de la positivit√© de ta vie. Elle t'aide √† oublier les √©preuves que tu dois traverser.
      Quatri√®mement, une cl√© primordiale doit √™tre ins√©r√©e en toi, celle de la confiance. La confiance est la synergie de l'amour d√©sint√©ress√©. Sans la confiance ton amour vacillera avec le temps. B√Ętir la confiance est un travail acharn√© √† ton travail personnel. Cette vertu t'aide √† prendre conscience de tes m√©rites, de te rassurer que les actions que tu fais son juste et t'emp√™che de regarder constamment en arri√®re. La confiance te donnera la force d'avancer vers l'horizon de la lumi√®re et croire en toi.¬†
      Cinqui√®mement, le courage, est le courant qui aide √† te reprendre dans les moments difficiles o√Ļ la vision de tes buts que tu entreprends devient tr√®s ardu. Il t'aide √† ne pas baisser les bras dans les moments o√Ļ tu ne vois plus la mani√®re de franchir une √©tape, un examen de conscience qui illumine ta pens√©e √† trouver une solution r√©fl√©chit et te dire, je vais √™tre capable de r√©ussir. Le courage est le deuxi√®me souffle dans ta course vers le sommet de ta personnalit√© int√©rieure.
      Sixièmement, La force fait partie du courage, l'un ne va pas sans l'autre. Le courage est le souffle, l'oxygène qui activera ta force intérieure. La force t'aide à gravir les montagnes et même à certaine étape de ta vie à soulever les montagnes pour trouver les trésors qui y sont enfouis. La force te donne la chance à balayer les nuages de la tempête et de retrouver la chaleur du soleil du bonheur venant de Dieu.
      La septi√®me √©tapes , la ma√ģtrise de soi, une vertu qui est au sommet de ces √©tapes int√©rieures. La ma√ģtrise de soi est l'√©tape ultime de ta vie¬† (les actions justes) car par cette vertue plus rien ne fera barri√®re dans le chemin que tu auras voulu suivre, car les √©preuves que tu auras surmont√©, te guidera √† devenir ma√ģtre de toi m√™me et ne faire qu'un avec toi m√™me, unis √† Dieu et √† son Roi.
      La ma√ģtrise de soi te donnera un tr√©sor inestimable qui est celui de l'harmonie. √Čquanimit√© ( √©quilibre parfait) dans tous les sens de ton √Ęme. Tu trouveras la beaut√© ultime de chaques √©l√©ments de la vie,¬†ta conscience sera dans ta pens√©e comme un m√©tronome parfait; La vrai vie celle de nos r√™ves¬†deviendra r√©alit√©, nous¬†deviendrons un √™tre de lumi√®re. La lumi√®re qui sommeillait en toi ja√Įllira de toute ta personne.
      Même dans la nuit des plus grandes tempêtes, tu seras un phare éblouissant de Dieu.
       
      SUIVRENT LES INSTRUCTIONS DE NOTRE DIEU J√ČHOVAH NOUS M√ąNE VERS LE VRAI BONHEUR CELUI DE LA VIE √ČTERNELLE.
      2 Timothée 3: 16-17, Proverbes chapitre 1-3,Galantes 5:22,23  1Corinthien 13: 4-(8 premier phrase)
