Politcally Incorrect Musings
It makes me nervous

My regular readers know I get info from a variety of sources. Sometimes one of my random sources are politically at the COMPLETE opposite of my leanings (social and fiscal conservative). But now and again, The Left comes up with interesting reading like this little gem:

Did you know about the InfraGard?

"InfraGard is an information sharing and analysis effort serving the interests and combining the knowledge base of a wide range of members. At its most basic level, InfraGard is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the private sector. InfraGard is an association of businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies, and other participants dedicated to sharing information and intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the United States."

The InfraGard was started under President Bill Clinton's presidency, which means he signed the bills Congress and the Senate passed (I'll have to look this one up - it will make for interesting reading, I am sure). Thanks to this organization, you can rest well knowing that some CEO is going to be able to put their limo into a bunker well in advance of trouble while you, blissfully unaware, will go about your daily business not knowing that your house is about to become ground zero due to some towel-headed jihad-monkey.

I understand the need for information sharing. But when did turning the US into Soviet East Germany become a good idea in The Government's mind? This program (granted, I have little more knowledge of it than you do at this point) seems to do more to protect corporate bigwigs than the general populace. Isn't the protection of the general populace what the government is supposed to do?
