By now you do realize that Algore, climate change guru and self-proclaimed Internet inventor, did not really bring the Internet into being...right?

His claim to have invented the Internet is on the same truth level as his claims about man-made global warming (climate change), that is, total, unadulterated bunk.

Bradley A. Blakeman, writing for News Max, gives us a refresher:

"The The Internet came into being thanks to the genius work of Americans, Dr.Robert E. Kahn and Dr. Vinton G. Cerf. These men, while employed by the Department of Defense in the DARPA office, (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), in the early 1970s, went to work conceiving, designing and implementing the idea of "open-architecture networking.

"'This breakthrough in connectivity and networking was the birth of the Internet.'"

Then he brings us this frightening bit of news:

"...in an effort to show the world how inclusive, sharing, cooperative, and international America can be, the Obama administration set off on a plan to surrender control and key management of the Internet by the U.S. Department of Commerce and their agents."

The rest of the story is HERE.

So, what difference does that make to you and me?

If President BO gets his way, the oversight of such things as Domain Names, URLs, IP addresses, content and other aspects of the Internet have, up to now, been mostly under the control (or in the case of content: lack of control) of the country which invented it, the United States.

The president's decision to give control away is a step toward his goal of internationalism, and his willingness to surrender America's control over a product we invented and should continue to control.

Why on earth would we even consider relinquishing control of that important element of our national security and economic interest?

As evidence that the international community does not share our commitment to free speech (or at least as much as we still retain), we need only to look to China's recent attempt to control Google's content.

How much of the content of your blogs and web sites are you looking forward to being controlled by the "international community?"

Are you naive enough to think that our First Amendment rights are going to be honored by that community?

In my last post it was the government intrusion into college football. Now it's the ceding of control of the Internet to others.

Is there no end to the liberties you and I will allow President BO and his minions to take from us?

I just hope we can take our country back from HIM soon, Joe...
Man, we have GOT to win November 2010!

Panama for Carter, and the Internet for Obama.

In what little the US still dominates BO is looking to take away from us. Third world status may be achievable in a single term.
Like Z pointed out, we need to take control of congress and put a stop to this runaway train of destruction. The congress is the true body of government. The executive branch can do little if congress is reigned in.

Joe said...

Z: This guy has put us in a spiral that is going to be really tough to pull out of.

Dan: The Democrats just love taking over things.

ablur: President BO like third worldism.

We need to take Congress back and then hold congressional hearings on Soros, Obama, and gang.

Joe said...

shoprat: I like that! Congressional hearings!
