Mr President, is this a war on hackers – or a war on people stopping hackers?

Exceptions.

Several business owners and corporate officers have said; "We own the hardware, software, pay for the electricity, pay for the communications, own the communication lines and other means. We pay for the airwaves, and encryption and the data belongs to us.

We will not provide a single bit of information unless we want to, or authorities present a search warrant issued by a seated judge."

Others went on to say: "We won't tolerate any more infringement on our rights and if government or corporations try to force it, they should be prepared to come under a military attack".

I did not hear the statements directly but were relayed to me in quotation. But clearly from those types of statements, lots os American's are very angry and see government as being very overreaching.

Opinions?
