Government is, however, as stupid as the citizenry believes

(The time on this post has been deliberately reset so it will appear in a desired order.)

Government Reform Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (Asshat-Calif.) said today that P2P networks are a threat to national security.

OK, the Freeholder is calling BS on this one.

I suppose that since they've been so spectacularly unsuccessful in shutting down the illegal trade in music and movies, they're going to swaddle the next effort in the flag and pass some more laws. But since the crackdown is in the name of "national security", far more draconian in the methods can be used for finding those who are passing around those top secret movies files.

It still isn't' a police state, but not for a lack of trying.
