    Before some in here simply dismiss this as another Glen Beck moment - please note that the proof comes directly from the government website - they are indicating authority to hack into your computer at will.
    Ladies and gentleman, in light of the most recent "turn in your neighbor if they talk against Obamacare" information that came out yesterday, and now this...

    WTF is going on in America? How can anyone, liberal or conservative, be in defense of such measures? If you are truly American - you cannot.

    There is a problem, hiring hackers is a common security tactic that allows them to test security systems better, many corporations will seek them out. Though I don't think they are targeting specific talk online, there is a chance that they will abuse these practices, and the government is the most likely to do so. What has me concerned and believing the possibility of these "Glenn Beck" reports is that Obama has placed a lot of attention to the internet since his election. I hate censorship, and the net is the last place for people to express themselves to large audiences without such a restriction. However, I have already stated the tech side of this in another thread.

    Car dealers are not average Americans?

    And cannot this website be accessed by anyone? And if the disclosure is being understood correclty, is not the Federal Government stating that by entering the website, your computer becomes property of the US government - and other law enforcement agencies?

    If so, that is rather scary, no?

    WTF is going on in this country?

    Sinatra made a good point, but I will elaborate:

    "Give them an inch, and they'll take a mile" fits very well here, also the Government Motors fiasco demonstrates that the current administration is actively trying to take over business, when they clearly cannot (and should not) run any such institution.
