Like most things that are worth owning, Computers are an American invention. Look at any modern computer and you will see that the whole thing is the product of American brilliance.
For example, this rugged IBM laptop I am using was designed and built by an American company. It runs software built by Microsoft, one of America’s most productive organizations. My computer does everything I could possibly want: I can do my work, submit my taxes and even search the Bible.
Like all the greatest American engineering, it’s an example of innovation that makes a growing group of European and Chinese hackers jealous. They hate our lead in computing technology and will stop at nothing until they have control of all of our computers.
I’m talking about a project called ‘Linux’, something you may not have encountered, but might do some day.
It’s a computer program that was initially developed in Finland as a means of circumventing valuable copyrights and patents owned by an American company called SCO Group.
There is just so much wrong with this that I may need a pad of paper the size of the Encyclopedia Brittanica (large print edition) just to properly rebut this.Â I could post links and more links with writings which will show how very, erm, misguided this individual is, but quite frankly there aren’t enough days in the year.
So I’ll leave you with a couple more paragraphs:
If you see a company using Linux, it may be that they have not paid for this software. Report them to the Business Software Alliance who have the legal authority to inspect any company’s computers for illegal programs like Linux.
And guess what software Osama Bin Laden uses on his laptop?
If you guessed it was Linux you would be 100% right. Osama uses Linux because he knows designed to counterfit DVDs, curcumventing the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, and defraud companies like Disney.
Next time somebody asks you how Al Queda agents pay for their rifles and rocket launchers, you can tell them that foreign hackers make software called Linux which helps them steal from Americans.
If you decide to comment on the blog, please be nice.Â This may be a parody of the old “Is Your Son A Computer Hacker?” Article.
Especially frightening is the fact that this was written on April 20th 2006.Â I despair sometimes.Â And then I remember that these people may well not be able to sit the right way on the toilet and I laugh.
Having written this, I thought maybe it was a joke or an attempt to get page rankings.Â But on looking at the rest of the site, it seems genuine.
