Exactly, Poita. The problem lies deeper in the political psyche. They just found out there is something they cannot control without the manufacturer's help, and they don't like it. So, in order to justify the control grab, they claim first that it is to "counter terrorism". This is the highest level of B.S. our governments have come up with since the cold war. They always have to make up some terrible enemy to keep us fearful so they can exert their will upon us. The real terrorists are living in D.C. (...And no, this was not a slam at Obama, I have neutral feelings toward him, as a President is really just a figurehead)
As for the analogies, yeah, I could have come up with better ones, it was just a point I was making, though. Been to Montana, Did some sapphire mining near Helena (Houser lake area) Beautiful place, but not enough jobs available.

In Holland we had terrorist threats aswell, political murders but I didnt get scared. Wanna blow us up, bring it!
By taking all these meassures they get what they want, scared people without using a stick of dynamite.
We, the people, dont fear anything. The goverment fears us because we have no real fears.
Now they want RIM to bend over and take it all in the name of "security"
Whats next? Having to ID your self with every purchase you make so they know what you have?
They know everything already because of your bankcard, phone, creditcard, car, passport what ever.
Potential terrorists dont scare me, but a goverment being able to take away privacy does.
RIM is opening a door they wont be able to close...
