    Hmm. In a sense, it's kind of like hiring a convicted hacker to work for the CIA.

    I think it's a very smart move personally like the post said the company is "trying to seek credibility by following stricter privacy guidelines and offering behavioral profiling services to its partners." and like muzikool said it's like hiring a hacker into the cia...

    this person may be just trying to get his agenda through but I doubt it. the other companies involved don't want garbage ruining their investments and will make sure Claria wants to keep up the privacy issue

    hahaha, yup that is why oil is giving money to open up alaska, for more drilling, or for that matter the energy companies having a large say on the power of FERC.

    Believe what you want,
    This is a corporate whore for president
    Yeah I said that, and I'm a republican


    Behavior profiling services to it's customers? there is a fox in the henhouse
    a little truth in advertising here

    this is what's bothering you about this president?

    you mean behavior like this bothers you more then when this guy decided standing down and going on vacation was the best course of action against an attack he was told was sure to come?...even though told where, when, how, who, what method, what target, what weapons...even though he had a clear template which would defend this country (from previous administrations with identical crisis and information) that could have, (should have) prevented the attack on september eleventh?

    this development bothers you more then that development?

    you mean this development bothers you more then those when his advisor's implored him to take OUT the tali ban and the terrorists IMMEIDATLY after the attack on our shore, and he REFUSED to do it for months...this development bothers you more then that?

    or refusing to actually capture bin laden when we had him at the foothills of tora bora...this is more alarming to you than that?

    how about when he deliberately circumvented our form of governemt, lied to the other branches that are there for just this purpose, took our forces from the heart of terrorism in Afghanistan so he could make up his little war in Iraq...now,because of this wonderful vision, where there was no terrorism in Iraq, it's currently the hub and terrorism abounds...though every decision he's made has exacerbated the fight and increased terrorism,and though he seems he's on their very team

    you mean this appointment is more disturbing then any of that?

    allright then domestically, how about taking the hard earned money that you and your parents set aside for your retirement and giving it to rich people...now you'll be retiring at a much later age with far fewer benefits.

    this appointment is more alarming then any of his history before this?

    and interesting lot the republicans in America are, this is to be sure.

    Perris, This has bothered me when he first got elected, I did not vote for him then either.

    He has always been a corporate whore, I knew this before he got elected, his track record in business proved this.

    What bothers me to no end, is that he can take the moral high road to torture, when the very architect of that torture is nominated to the Attorney General post.
    To say that he did not tacitly agree to the endorsement of information mining is ludicrous, he and Alberto Gonzalez knew what they were doing.

    Trust me I can go and on, about where the Republican party is out of touch with reality, But I think every party suffers it's wings

    I joined the Republican party back when I was single, the tax burden on the middle class is excessive, and out of touch with the fact that single income generators are taxed at a higher rate then the rest of the Country. This country is born on the backs of the middle class, they outnumber both the rich and poor, but pay more than their fair share of the tax base. So although I share their view of no new taxes, I dont share their view of Moral high ground.

    the real problem falconguard is that the republican constituents turn a blind eye simply because he's their party leader...their party winning is much more important then having a competent man in charge of America...any candidate as long as it's not a democrat..this is the party moto in these times

    imagine what the media and the republican party would have done to this man because of this record of achievement if he were a democrat.

    this is where we are today

    I'm not turning a blind eye, just pointing out hypocrites..for that matter We have another one over here in California, Arnold Schwarzenegger. He campaigned that he did not need political money , he had his own, but yet another corporate whore is raising money far beyond what the governor he replaced has done in 6 years.

    Looked like a political post from the start. An executive of a company that was known to destroy computers getting a seat on government committee. How is that not politics?
