  •  True. But we need to put a leash on Washington's.. (11+ / 0-)

    agenda so they in turn can put a leash on Silicon Valley. Something we can't do.

    It all starts with at least a modicum of transparency in Washington -- so we know how short the leashes must be.

    Ok, I've done wore out the analogy now. lol

      Then I knew of a situation where a friend of mine, a small office trial lawyer, got intimidated over something over something that would ordi arily be a private matter but was obtained by an enemy from Acxiom. If you think the NSA knows about you, its nothing compared to what Acxiom knows. And they will sell what they know to anybody, including the government.

      I had my own crazy experience with ChoicePoint many years ago and it was absolutely insane and cost me a ton of dough. Thats why im so big on this stuff because I know this is only just getting started.
