Using Unofficial bash Strict Mode

Aaron Maxwell has a blog post titled “Use the Unofficial Bash Strict Mode (Unless You Looove Debugging)” He claims a few simple script settings will make your bash scripts “more robust, reliable and maintainable” and I think he’s right.

Quoting Aaron:

Let’s start with the punchline. Your bash scripts will be more robust, reliable and maintainable if you start them like this:

#!/bin/bash
set -euo pipefail
IFS=$’\n\t’

 

There’s some good discussion on this technique at the ENHANCING THE (UNOFFICIAL) BASH STRICT MODE post if you want to read more on it.

How Propagandists Feed the Right Wing Conspiracy Machine

New York Times – A Pro-Trump Conspiracy Theorist, a False Tweet and a Runaway Story

The New York Times presents the case of a well-known right-wing propagandist who generates false stories that are taken up by Breitbart, Limbaugh, and the rest of the hate machine and used to cast doubt on facts harmful to the right, in this case sowing doubt about Comey’s testimony on Trump’s obstruction of justice.

This fits the definition of treason to me. These propagandists are working for Russia, whether paid by Putin or not. As with Trump, the GOP led government is unlikely to take action against these traitors because it helps keep them in power. Party over Country is the GOP mantra.
