Internet Kill Switch

July 12, 2010

Chairman Zero with his finger hovering over the “internet kill switch”… Is this the beginning of an international intrigue novel or what? So you think Zero is getting the coveted kill switch on the internet do you? Here is the Wall Street Journal story that started all the flap. There is nothing else out there on this. Take a read and see what you think.

Actually I don’t think it sounds like too bad of a plan. This is really something you would think the DOD would have had in place all along. Now to find out that Al Qaeda can monitor your electricity usage from a laptop in a cave somewhere kind of sucks don’t you think? What have these giant brains at the Pentagon been thinking all these years as we slowly converted everything we have over to a system that Castro could have corrupted with a Palm Pilot?

One thing that always strikes me as funny is how everybody out there thinks that the gubmint has nothing but time and money to hire fools to sit in a room and monitor every Americans phone and internet. This is not even realistic. How many Americans are there? How much time do they spend on the phone and online? You do the math. That’s quite a task wouldn’t you agree. And that’s not even allowing for all the evil Canadians and such out there, somebody’s got to keep track of their next plot against America.

Look folks, we’ve got enough trouble with legitimate threats to our freedom out there, we don’t need manufactured ones to occupy our time. How many people actually went out and spent time and money to avert this man-caused-disaster? Until next time, screw environmentalists.
