|Commenting on IRS Knew Lerner Emails Were ‘Missing’ From Computers, So Where Are The Paper Copies?,
|June 18, 2014
|As a senior storage engineer, working for the largest commercial storage vendor, I am quite familiar with how corporations and government agencies (like Federal Systems) roll out servers and storage systems for their IT systems. A large single enterprise grade storage system has up to 2048 drives in it, with multiple levels of hardware failover. Most users will use RAID-6 (dual redundancy) for their email (usually Exchange Server) volumes. They will also employ the standard complex data replication methods to create multiple levels of backups on secondary storage systems.
Email is NOT located on desktop PCs, so a PC crash has no effect on the email system. There are hundreds (even thousands) of users per email database (Exchange will have up to 16 Database Availability Groups, each with 2 servers and many dozens of databases). An entire database in a DAG would have to crash to take out the emails of a department, but it would typically affect hundreds of users. The crashed database could easily be rebuilt (up to a certain point of time since the last snapshot) and get it up again. So this is just another complete lie by the far left progressives offered to those who know nothing about enterprise level computing.
Is the liberty movement more dangerous than al-Qaida? CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen thinks so. Apparently, so do Hillary Clinton and Harry Reid, both of whom have called gun rights supporters “terrorists.”
During a CNN town hall meeting Tuesday, Hillary Clinton made quite clear her view of the Constitution in general, the 1st and 2nd Amendments in particular, and that she, like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, views Americans as terrorists seeking to do harm on other Americans.
When asked about a ban on so-called assault weapons and extended magazines, she said: “We cannot let a minority of people — and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people — hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people… We’re going to have to do a better job protecting the vast majority of our citizens, including our children, from that very, very, very small group that is unfortunately prone to violence and now with automatic weapons can wreak so much more violence than they ever could have before.”
The U.S. spent $20 billion and seven years nation building and training Iraq’s military. So let the Iraqi people settle their differences. We’ve invested far too much for far too long.
American schools are little more than prisons or halfway houses.
The Nation’s young people are forced to attend whether they are interested in education or not, where they are indoctrinated to worship the State and conform to statism and propagandized with false history and egalitarianism. If they fail to attend, they are regarded as lawbreakers or truants.
Despite multiple crises, President Barack Obama shuffled off to vacation, play a round or two of golf at exclusive clubs only the 1 percent can afford, and raise money for the Democrat National Committee.
The Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, remains one big mess. Now the Barack Obama Administration is harassing hundreds of thousands of those who have signed up for the world’s biggest boondoggle, seeking verification of eligibility for subsidies they were initially told they were eligible to receive.
The documents requested include birth certificates, Social Security cards, high school diplomas, driver’s licenses, pay stubs and voter registration cards.
