This Seems Really Odd....

In preparation for the August Olympic Games in Beijing, China has installed hardware and software in all hotels, to make it easier for state security to monitor foreign visitors that use the Internet. Some foreign owned hotels leaked the documents (orders from the Chinese government to install the systems) to U.S. government officials, who made it public. The foreign owned hotels in Beijing were threatened with closure if they did not comply.
If one looks at anyone one single individual life anywhere, a state like China could somehow dream up some reason, no matter how trite, why that person is a threat. Its all so very paranoid.

So, when is China going to grow up and figure out that some threats just are not worth monitoring? Call the Democrats, they are the champions of human rights and can solve this problem with a single word by the Obamessiah.
