Has anybody heard about this, and would you allow a FBI security partner to run a program on your computer.

If you see green, you are good. Red background, not so good.

I’m Green. Thanks.

I was a little nervous to check, though.

I guess it’s time to drag out H.L. Mencken’s quote once again:

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”
H. L. Mencken
US editor (1880 - 1956)

A security partner that just registered their domain name on GoDaddy a few months ago? No thanks.

Taking away the Internet would lead millions, or at least hundreds of thousands, to start meeting their friends face to face instead of online.

Gee, didn’t the Sons of Liberty meet in taverns and other places?

The question becomes, would the federales prefer to have us talk online, where they can hear us, or at shooting ranges and taverns and bowling alleys, where they can’t?
