Who Let the Genie out of the Bottle America?

Why did we start giving our foreign enemies and criminals a way to hack all our chemical, nuclear and biological weapons, all computer controlled infrastructure services such as lights, gas, transportation, banking, medicine, patents, copyrights, and other intellectual property and so on over the internet and world wide web.

Ronald Reagan knew war included the collection and dissemination of information. And if the Soviets or the Chinese ever got our computers and software they would duplicate our weapons and defenses. I believe Ronald Reagan would not allow US computer companies to sell computers and software to other countries that were our enemies.

I believe all the Presidents after Ronald Reagan loosened export restrictions on operating systems, data encryption, encrypted email software, along with CAD, GPS mapping, engineering software and more.

I believe our Government let our enemies have our science and technology including computer hardware, software and internet and more than they would be willing to admit. I don't know why we did it. Now the Chinese build a lot of computers and smart TV's with eavesdropping ability. 

Today almost every branch of government, banks, hospitals, utility companies, insurance companies and more have had their websites hacked and lost data.

Lets quit letting the Genie out of the Bottle.

We need to rethink how the internet we invented should be used in the future since we made the world a much more dangerous place for the individual, the government and business in about the last 30 years. 

We need new hardwired communication systems that don't operate on the internet. One being the BBS otherwise known as an electronic bulletin board system or BBS.

Electronic bulletin boards were used by every major government segment, business, info brokers, Realtors, Banks, but they switched to interactive web sites. This was a grand security mistake. We should be using the BBS and telephone lines for banking, medicine, military and a few other applications that require a telephone line, login name, password, finger print ID, and a physical address for the associated telephone number dialing into a BBS for higher security measures than the internet!

Let's put what's left of the American Genie back in the bottle and keep America Safe.
