Time for reeducation?

A Calif. Republican Rep. Joel Anderson wants to have google earth block images of possible terror targets. Somebody want to tell this idiot that the horse is already out of the barn? In fact it's been out of the barn for five years now. Google Earth was out as a preview version in 2004. You could download photos of any major city anywhere in the world. I have somewhere in my collection of info an entire map of Bagdad. I wanted to see just how big the place was and what it looked like and let me tell you the city is huge. Sorry Joel if there was the dumbest lawmaker award you'd get it. D'OH

Maybe the senator would like to ban all the maps of the U.S. A google search reveals 134 million of them.

Pretty moronic alright. Even without the maps, any terrorist worth their salt would have no problem finding a target rich enviroment. Why am I not surprised this guy is a Republican?

Terrorist targets are easy to find. The Google maps would be great for military planning but their satellites are more accurate than what they can find with Google. Yep, he is a Republican.

Maybe they should just blur Joel Anderson's house...you know...so people don't come with signs saying what a twit he is.

Even the family cats of Republicans, are afraid of terrorists. The only thing we have to fear is more fear it self.

OMG, that congressman is absolutely right. Google Earth is setting us up for a terrorist attack. I always knew Google was one of them terrorist front organizations.

sigh. Just goes to show how out of touch elected officials can be.

Hey Joel, yeah you, welcome back to earth! Do try to keep up!
