U.N. to Seek Control of the Internet

Next week the United Nations' International Telecommunications Union will meet in Dubai to figure out how to control the Internet. Representatives from 193 nations will attend the nearly two week long meeting, according to news reports.
"Next week the ITU holds a negotiating conference in Dubai, and past months have brought many leaks of proposals for a new treaty. U.S. congressional resolutions and much of the commentary, including in this column, have focused on proposals by authoritarian governments to censor the Internet. Just as objectionable are proposals that ignore how the Internet works, threatening its smooth and open operations," reports the Wall Street Journal.

Lord 'Bongo, al-Hussein Pasha, and his blue-helmet BFFs makes another covert move to control it all

Food [via RFID'ed EBTs, yo]
Comm [via I-net control]
Money [all digital; cash = bad]
Transportation [TSA on steroids]
Housing [feds own most mortgages]

Prepare Accordingly.

Does this come as a surprise to anyone? First you control the media (the internet being the last truly free form of media), then you disarm the people, then you fire up the ovens. How many times this happened before?

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it

Guy on Laura Ingrhams show last night said Feds can confiscate all digital matter without a search warrant; Patriot act bull. Who the hell came up with that name anyway?
