The government’s use of a 230 year old law, the All Writs Act of 1789 to try to force Apple to provide the government with a backdoor to all iPhones has caused a huge stir today. And well it should.

What is crystal clear is that americans get all bent out of shape if anyone even suggests common sense gun laws while these same americans could care less when it is suggested that we should accept that our government should control our privacy.

Both issues are addressed in our Constitution.

The fools who could give a damn about privacy rely on their leader’s claims that they could prevent acts of terror if we had zero privacy. How do I know these folks are fools? Easy, they insult us by making claims that the Paris terror event WOULD have been prevented had it not been for encryption. No one can prove this, it is a known unknown. It is clear that those that proceed on false assertions are fools.

So please, all of you politicians that are banging the drum for government backdoors to encryption, just shut the fuck up.

But what can you expect from a country filled with the pride that dubya kept us safe, except on 9/11.
