What we just endured was unprecedented - and it needs to be addressed. Your characterizing it as “piddly” does not conform with the reality as we lived it, nor as the mounting evidence suggests.
I don’t really understand the logic that views sanctions as an act of war while simultaneously writing off cyber-attacks on our elections as unworthy of concern.
Have you not heard whatever the Russians may have done did not effect the outcome of the election? Hillary lost and never challenged the vote so fuck her. Surely if a foreign country scrambled up the election system a do over would be in order.
Which is worse dumb ass, a cyber attack or WWIII?
