Secret Police Wanted: Apply Within

Now that he's finally mastered breathing, libertarian moron Clayton Cramer turns his thoughts to Big Brother. He quotes the following post from Ken "Boehm Boehm" Boehm at the "National Legal and Policy Center."

NLPC has uncovered a plan by the White House New Media operation to hire a technology vendor to conduct a massive, secret effort to harvest personal information on millions of Americans from social networking websites.
The information to be captured includes comments, tag lines, emails, audio, and video. The targeted sites include Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, Flickr and others – any space where the White House "maintains a presence."

In the course of investigating procurement by the White House New Media office, NLPC discovered a 51-page solicitation of bids that was filed on Friday, August 21, 2009. Filed as Solicitation # WHO-S-09-0003, it is posted at [REDACTED].com [sic]. Click here to download a 51-page pdf of the solicitation.

Try to stop laughing.

Now picture Clayton as he strokes his beard and muses, "If The Bush White House Had Let A Contract Like This...."

Now try to stop laughing again.

(DO NOT GO to the site named in this blurb, as it tries to load some sort of spyware on your computer. The correct name of the site ends in .gov.)
