    ICANN is a continuation of the game played for
    years by Jon Postel, an institutionalized kook
    at USC/ISI. Postel of course was a pawn of the
    military industrial complex that runs ISI. It
    is a spook-infested place. IBM of course has
    their hand in the thing. Herb Schorr is their
    tool that has been there for years. He gets
    the government funding and then funnels it to
    thugs like Bill Manning, Joe Touch, Bob Braden
    and Joyce Reynolds. They do nothing but
    manipulate the game behind the scenes all day.

    The real problem begins with government funding.
    No one is going to be able to stop that. You
    will always have the insiders sucking up the
    government funding and then gaming the system
    to maintain their lock on that funding. It is
    very corrupt, but their view is, someone has
    to get the funding and it might as well be them.

    ICANN was created with all of the Jon Postel
    legacy as a model. Take away the government
    funding and support and it vaporizes. ISOC is
    just a small clone of the model. Take away the
    $6 per year .ORG fees and it collapses. It
    serves no useful purpose to society. The .ORG
    owners were not even asked if their money
    should be sent there.

    U.S. taxpayers are of course not asked if their
    money should be sent to a tower full of spooks
    called USC/ISI West and East. Oh, yes, they have
    an East-coast branch to make sure the funding
    flows direct from the spooks in Reston, Virginia.

    Wake up people, the CIA is now going to be set
    free to have its way with U.S. citizens. You will
    now see assasinations (strange disappearances)
    for the sake of "the society". Run
