Better perhaps would be to realise that the term "Tin foil hatters" is used by those who at best are currently ignorent of the problems these "tin foil hatters" try to draw your attention to, or, at worst is used by those who deliberately wish to smear that persons credability.

It has always been, is now, and will always be an Ad hominem. Best to stop using it completely.

But I'm glad you're going in the right direction

It does not matter whether its a suprise to you or not. The point is to be outraged by people snooping on you without your knowledge. Thats very VERY creepy don't you think?

If not, then I guess you won't mind me coming over to your house, climbing a ladder and peeping through your bedroom window, right?

Please think about the ramifications of letting this kind of thing happen without any oversight. this is not the government being stupid. It is a governemt that wants to have ever more control over your everyday life. Do you want that? Think real hard now please. Because I can't name one single authority in history that has gained even half of the control the US government has, without it turning VERY NASTY!

You are comparing the paying of taxes, to raising children?

You are very confused my friend, let me break this down for you. Over 51% of taxes (your money) goes toward war. That's to say, your taxes now go directly toward destroying other countries and their population. Am I saying this because I'm some kind of hippy? Do I care anything for people that I do not know exist? No, I am not! I am saying it because its true! That is where over half your tax money goes, you understand that right?

Just to make this even more clear. The people in power create "laws" that force you to pay taxes, so that if you don't, its likely that unthinking men with guns will come to your house, restrain you and put you in a cage.

In other words, if you do not pay taxes which go directly to killing hundreds of thousands (even millions) of people, you get put in prison.

Do you know how fucked up that is? You compare that to the cost of raising children... and your post has been modded insightful +5?????

It is this kind of blinkered thinking which is so asinine to a peaceful existence.

Yes paying taxes should most definitely be considered *punishment*!

It is this kind of blinkered thinking which is so asinine to a peaceful existance. I am ashamed of you.

People who want to infect computers for whatever reason, do it because they benefit. adding secure boot does not thwart their desire to benefit, thus, they simply change tac. So "Secure Boot" will do absolutely nothing to make Windows computers safer, as it does not change the cause of the problem.

But Microsoft people already knew this. I mean lets face it, they don't get to make the decisions for a massive corporation unless they have at least a few braincells.

So now, anyone who wants to distribute their own linux, which historically is what drives innovation amongst the free software world, must pay $99 to a CA through Microsoft. A company who always has been, is now, and always will be, looking for a way to undermine competition.

ITS FUCKING GENIUS!

Yes it is impossible to enforce. But please don't think for a second that the people writing these "laws" are just stupid, that would be dangerous.

The intention behind this move is simply to create a legal framework which allows those in control to censor ANY comment which is contrary to propagandised opinion.

If you or I make a valid yet controversial comment on a website based in NY, the appropriate people will be alerted, the comment will be taken down, and a statement will be issued in its place:

"This commenters identification could not be verified."

Your right they have. But if you take a look at what always happens after they implement that surveillance, you might understand why many, many people do not want it.

every single government in history has turned on the people it governs. Your casual attitude implies that you and your government are the exception. I hope your not that nieve.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a rigged demo.
