Protecting the American People Through Technology

It is amazing the latest technologies used in the United States Military; we have certainly come light years in a very short time. Our military is the most technologically advanced army in the World.Today we can control whole Armies with Blue Force Tracking, PDAs, Bio-Metrics, under skin RFID, all by satellite, RF, non-active pinging, AWACS, etc.

There is even talk of figuring out ways to track your enemies troop movements, Red Force tracking by hacking into their system, then marching them into your strong points or over whelming their system and crashing it or disrupting it to cause chaos.The superstars of the research and development world, those folks at DARPA of course have all sides figured out before deploying such technologies. Since we are doing all these things and have all these technologies now. We can track Student VISAs and people of interest from questionable countries and possible International Terrorists by way of RFID active ID cards, Real ID programs, under skin RFID active Satellite tags.

We can even track rental cars, cell phones, computer surfing, emails, phone calls, etc. See links below:.http://www.wired.

com/news/business/0,1367,21781,00.html.Some privacy advocates are a little concerned and probably for good reason, as no one wants a NAZI Germany type police state. For instance if we were to continue this forward movement based on fear from International Terrorists and therefore track everyone, are we still in fact living in a free society? Who might decide who is good and who is potentially bad?.

One might even ask you; what thoughts did you come away with after watching; "1984," "Gatica," or the latest rendition of the Genre with Tom Cruise in "Minority Report" where one could be arrested for evil thought before an event? And if we fail to use these technologies, then who are we to blame when another International Terrorism Attack happens?.The question of protecting the American People through technology, is not an easy one, yet we need to draw a line somewhere and decide if it is worth it and then evaluate if it is actually working or simply depriving the good citizens of their freedom of travel, speech, press, gun ownership or ability to pursue happiness. Think on this for me.

China Rises Think Again - Multi-polaristic lateralists are tripping over each other like Inspector Clouseau and salivating at the mouth Cujo style in the hope that China will challenge American hegemony.

American Morality A Glimmer of Hope on the Horizon - Has the United States lost it?s basic principle of morality? Has the United States moved away from the guiding principles that this country was founded on? A single paragraph describes these basic principles and it is the meaning of this paragra.

Since When is It Okay to Lie to the United States Congress - Since when is it okay to purport and misrepresent truth to the United States Congress? Recently the Federal Trade Commissions Consumer Protection Division's Anti-SPAM Group put forth a report claiming SPAM was on the decline by 9%.
