One of the reasons that I wont be going into politics


No need to go all sciency-fictiony and implant people with microchips.

Just give them a free cell phone, I'm a benevolent dictator after all [smiles for camera].

Everyone is used to cameras being everywhere, so that's not a problem.

So now I can track and watch them with ease.

Get a few of my friends running the corporations to build in bugs so we can hook in directly. Every school child gets a free laptop [big smile for cameras] we must be able to compete with the rest of the world [in what you might ask, that's for me to know]

With Moore's Law being quite an accurate prediction of how information technology is progressing managing the extra data will not be a problem, and costs will soon not be an issue.

I can always justify my actions by saying, but surely everyone is doing it, haven't you heard? Well wake up and smell the roses, hey I didn't say you could pick them, put them back this instant. Yes, I'm talking to you Jane Montfort!

Snooping on my friends and enemies alike, yes I know its a bit iffy; but what they hey, they are doing it as well. If they aren't well all I can say is the technology is readily available and they are missing an incredible business opportunity.

So what if the people object, just tell them if they aren't naughty then they have nothing to fear, just don't tell them what you mean by naughty is my advice.

Now how to get their web cameras to be on without the tell tale little light because what they get up at home may well come under the naughty category.

You have nothing to fear from me.

See my big fluffy dogs. See I'm really nice.

Just love me

And you'll be fine.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
