Having followed what all is going on and this database, and being fond of history the following can be stated:
While Ms. Walters may think that this is a good idea or even that it is smart, it is too reminescent of people of the past. This is not the first
time such a database existed, nor will it be the last one. However, what she fails to realize, is that it is enough to get the people up in arms
The first man who did such, was J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI. He created, without computers, a database of people, knowing all of their
secrets, and where the skeletons were in their closet. He used that information as a weapon to get what he wanted, and to protect himself from
prosecution by those who could take him down.
But she also forgot the other man who got and kept information on people, including his enemies, and that was President Richard M. Nixon, who used it
for his purposes. Both men, ultimately ended up leaving office, and the fall out from such, rocked both organizations for a few years.
Obama, is not so slick, and ultimately this is going to cause problems in the long run for the White House for years to come along with the NSA. And
the next President is going to have to deal with this, as the people are getting more and more irate with the current president.
He needs to deal with this issue immediately, showing that he made a mistake, lest that come this next election cycle, the public believes otherwise.
More and more details are coming out about who they are watching, and leads to more and more questions.
The biggest question that every one should be asking, is why does the federal government, sworn to govern and follow the laws, why do they not trust
the very people they are governing?
Is the federal government so afraid of what we may do, that this is the only solution that they can come up with? Or are they using it to prop up say
the us postal service?
