I imagine the TSA will will be disbanded very shortly to help protect the individual liberties of American citizens. It will be nice to be able to fly again without being felt up.

EEEEERRRRRRR!!!! (buzzer)

The "War on Terror" is here to stay.

Welcome to perpetual war.

We are officially in a time where the masses dont know the countries we are bombing, and cant even point them out on a map.

no worries.. google and yahoo will keep the gov. informed!

http://news.yahoo.com/house-oks-cybersecurity-bill-despite-veto-threat-223445304--finance.html

well its been passed. not we will see if obama keeps a promise.

Moreover, the bill only permits sharing of cybersecurity threat information when a company is engaged in the protection of its own systems or networks or those of the corporate customer. Our bill does not require anyone to provide information to the government. Any sharing of information with the government is completely voluntary every step of the way. A government surveillance program that doesn't require any information privileged to the government shouldn't be a very good surveillance program. Now, I couldn't believe it. As an old FBI guy, we would say that is an unworkable event.

how would that work with the death or danger of idividuals part?

Faced with widespread privacy concerns, Rogers and Rep. C.A. "Dutch" Ruppersberger of Maryland, the Intelligence panel's top Democrat, pulled together an amendment that limits the government's use of threat information to five specific purposes: cybersecurity; investigation and prosecution of cybersecurity crimes; protection of individuals from death or serious bodily harm; protection of minors from child pornography; and the protection of national security.

I find puzzling that the focus of all of the Internet security is and has been on the communications of individuals. I proposed a solution to Richard Clarke a few years ago for protection of the power grid, pipelines, chemical plants, refineries etc. which would have cost the gument very little because it would have provides services for the private inducsry that they wanted and they got the security as a by product. He said it would never work because there wasn't a big payoff to the defense industry.

So, what are we worried about this week? Iran sabotaging the grid and industry by hacking the Internet. Sorry boys, I am not interested in doing it anymore. You just have to give those big fat contracts to your pals in the defense business. We don't care nearly as much about security as we do about making another layer of fat on the fat cats. Breaks your heart.

The GWOT isn't exactly over and probably won't be for a long time but Airport Security is getting crazy. Like when they did the aggressive epat down on the girl with cp. Wile the TSA should not be disbanded they should have better means than strip searches and being dicks to everybody.
