  • Thinking Big about Social Networks Down Under

    Can Twitter get you killed? Can Facebook start and stop wars? Can terrorism be financed through Paypal, and might people arm themselves through eBay?

    These are the questions tackled in an online forum sponsored by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute examining the nexus of social networking and national security. The Heritage Foundation recently hosted a similar public event on the subject.

    With all the buzz in Congress over cybersecurity legislation, including the PRECISE Act, there is never a better time to bone up on what is going on in the online competition for the high ground in cyberspace.

      The New World Media of The 21st Century & Open Society's Freedom of Speech! Via facebook & twitter connecting all 6 Billion of us in an instant with the click of a mouse or a key pad of a cellphone! The genie is out of the bottle never to return! It's a new day on mother earth! We should all remember one thing. Truth Has No Agenda! One last remark, God gave us 2 ears and one mouth, we should listen more than we speak and I also need to remember that! http://bit.ly/8Wt67s

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
