Full Frontal Thursday: Another Shooting, Russian Bots & Trolls, and Eric Schneider-man

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about the latest mass shooting here in the U.S. Way to go, Texas! Keep it “bigger and better” down that way, y’all!

Sam also talks about how easy it was for the Russian-generated bots and paid trolls to infiltrate most social media, and how cheap a price they had to pay to do so. Her “vote Jill Stein” jab at the end was duly noted, as the Russian trolls were promoting Jill Stein considerably during the 2016 election – and, Sam herself threw her mindless support behind Gary Johnston before jumping on the Hillary train! ‘member that?

When the Internet was nothing more than a conglomeration of online forums and message-boards, with only a select few knowing about it or even interacting on it regularly, online scams were few and far between. After everybody and their mother, grandmother, and great-grandfather’s dog suddenly had access to the World Wide Web, the scammers followed, and online scams became the new threat. As scams became as obvious as Doctor Stanley’s Snake-Oil Cure-All and his wife’s genuine imitation pearls, they ‘evolved’ to circumvent security programs and firewalls. Now, one has to be aware of the sophisticated means others use to scam people online, and there are many!

For example…
