The primary qualification this person has for this position is that he can spell “technology”.
And knows how to utter, “No’.

'Internet ID#' here we come. The days of using multiple Email addresses, screen names for blogging, etc.. WILL BE OVER SOON. The government will make it so that you MUST enter an ID# similar to a Social Security number when logging into the Internet. This will be your identity while on the Internet so the government can follow you anywhere you blog, anyplace you shop or anybody you Email.
The regime will know your every step.. If you speak out against the government you may be blocked from Internet access or prosecuted for anti-government sentiments. There WILL be a master list of all offenders!
If there ever was a cause to fight, THIS IS IT. The Internet is our ONLY way around the media to share THE TRUTH and to educate the sheep being produced by our schools AND THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO STOP IT AND STOP IT NOW.
Watch for 0bama to try and push the mandatory Internet ID# before the election.. Be aware and be ready to FIGHT THIS, FREEPERS! This is theft of our Internet freedom and will NOT stand for it.
Short, but interesting, bio.

Don't be complacent about Internet ID because of pathways like Tor.. Trust me, there will be no way around mandatory Internet ID once it's implemented.
I forgot Bill Ayers....
I’ve worked with a lot of CTOs, and most of them are blooming idiots
Great re-write, exactly what I had been thinking!
Ive worked with a lot of CTOs, and most of them are blooming idiot

“Watch for 0bama to try and push the mandatory Internet ID# before the election.”
Can’t do it. It disenfranchises people who do not have the internet. If you can give someone an ID, then that person will have to use it to vote, get a drivers license, get on a plane, have their medical records released.
The day that tries to get implemented, SCOTUS will shoot it down.
The Internet ID# is solely for the Internet. They absolutely CAN do it, just as most people have a password to log into their computers.
