Comment I for one am glad I'm an American. (Score 1) 83

This is my computer. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my computer is useless.
Without my computer, I am useless.
I must program my computer true. I must hack faster than the enemy who is trying to kill me.
I must hack him before he hacks me.
I will.
My computer and I know that what counts in war is not the lines we write, the spread of our worms or the chaos we make.
We know that it is the hits that count.
We will hit.
My computer is human, even as I am human, because it is my life.
Thus, I will learn it as a brother.
I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts, its accessories, its keyboard and its monitor.
I will keep my computer clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready.
We will become part of each other.
Before God I swear this creed.
My computer and I are the defenders of the internet.
We are the masters of our enemy.
We are the saviors of my life.
So be it, until victory is the internet's and there is no enemy.
