    Obama Administration Reportedly Plans to Create Internet ID for All Americans

    President Obama is putting plans in motion to give the Commerce Department authority to create an Internet ID for all Americans, a White House official told CNET.com.

    White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt told the website it is "the absolute perfect spot in the U.S. government" to centralize efforts toward creating an "identity ecosystem" for the Internet.
    The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace is currently being drafted by the Obama administration and will be released by the president in a few months.
    "We are not talking about a national ID card. We are not talking about a government-controlled system. What we are talking about is enhancing online security and privacy, and reducing and perhaps even eliminating the need to memorize a dozen passwords, through creation and use of more trusted digital identities," Commerce Secretary Gary Locke said at an event Friday at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, according to CNET.com.
    Locke added that the Commerce Department will be setting up a national program office to work on this project.
    The move has raised eyebrows about privacy issues.
    "The government cannot create that identity infrastructure," Jim Dempsey of the Center for Democracy and Technology told the website. "If I tried to, I wouldn't be trusted."
    Schmidt stresses that anonymity will remain on the Internet, saying there's no chance that "a centralized database will emerge."

    There is going to be a point, in the not too distant future, when alot of people will realise, that behind all of the big words that they/we don't understand, we can see the meaning of what is being said by these theives, and the writing will be on the wall.

    Its is getting more obvious by the day that governments are attempting to control and restrict all aspects of personal freedom, and self governance. it is happening all over the world, in all countries.

    I think we are coming to the pain threshold of the human race. I don't think we can take much more before there is an explosion from the people.

    So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom,
    those who wish to tyranizewill do so,
    for tyrants are active and ardent,
    and willdevote themselves in the name of any number of gods,
    religious and otherwise to put shackles upon sleeping men - Voltaire

    LOL another lead ballon

    Has anyone ever asked why are all these news laws even being considered let alone implemented ? Its because they are scared to death of what your going to do when the apple cart gets upset . They fear for their existence when the slumbering sleepy mass`s get to the point we have been at for yr`s. There is a question of how they are going to react to what has been played out in front of their eyes . Not every one is as forgiving as some of us. Yes the power does reside with us or they wouldn`t be trying to protect their pathetic azz`s from us they are running scared

    Federated identity system have been tried, and it failed. You have them anyway - look at the way Google consumed Youtubes identity management system - now you need a google id to id yourself to YouTube.

    There are too many issues of distrust for this to work.

    And the biggest one to distrust here is the government.

    The whole idea is extremely funny to me.
