Big Brother wants your bytes
Specifically, easy access to all bytes that flow over your network wire.
I spent most of the Clinton administration fighting attempts by the Clintonistas to do this, and am pissed that now the Busheviks want to do the same thing. A bunch of Commies, the whole bunch of them -- buncha busy-bodies who think they know better than the scientists and engineers who designed the Internet.
The big difference between the Clintonistas and the Busheviks, however, is rule of law -- or respect thereof. The Clintonistas, as despicable as they were, respected rule of law. They tried to get a law making it illegal to use encryption and requiring all technology to be chipped for immediate government access, and they failed. The Busheviks, on the other hand, don't care about no steenkin' law. They simply issued a dictate from King George III upon high -- "thou shalt re-work the Internet so that Big Brother can easily tap all Internet connections!" -- and that's that. They got guns, and they got power, and that's all they care about. Law? Thugs like this gang *spit* on law. They have no more respect for law than a bunch of crack-sellin' gangstas in the inner city, and about the same mentality i.e. that might makes right and they got guns so that makes it right to terrorize the people.
Goons and thugs. The whole bunch of them. And if this was still a nation of men, rather than a nation of pussy-whipped sheep, they'd all be strung up from a gallows like all goons should be, to hang from the neck as a lesson to any other goons that want to disregard rule of law in favor of rule of gun.

We should start shooting busy bodies, can a penguin fire a weapon?

I'd prefer to shoot 'em up with sedatives. Far less messy, and why waste good ammunition? Who knows? Some of them might actually become productive members of society after a while and start minding their business instead of ours.
Hey, I can dream...
