Big Brother 

THIS should absolutely scare the everlovin' bejeebus out of all of you.
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.
Considering that the House just read the Constitution aloud so as to recage their brains onto just what exactly government CAN and CAN'T do, I'd like somebody to point me to the part where it's government's job to "create an identity ecosystem."
Schmidt stresses that anonymity will remain on the Internet, saying there's no chance that "a centralized database will emerge."
So says the man from the administration that passed the most centralizing legislation - Obamacare - we've seen since Social Security was enacted... and look how well THAT's working out...
