Is the selling of America’s Yahoo! to China a moot point because they own so much of our debt?
I have reasons to believe, on the gut level, that ownership in America must
be controlled for national security reasons and even more so for the freedom of information that flows through our media!
Yahoo had share of Alibaba but now Alibaba wants to buy back its shares and purchase a controlling interest in Yahoo. Yahoo is not just a search engine it is a technological device that determines what goes in front of
American eyes! It has significant affect on what we think. Just to give you an example of this, consider this simple example.
Yesterday I went on line to order some filters for my whirlpool refrigerator’s water purifier. I chose to buy the clone of the model that came from Whirlpool. This morning as I searched for information on Alibaba I found
what appeared to be a news media story about the purchase. You will quickly see that it is written in poor English, revealing its likely Chinese source. Note carefully that the Ads in the top bar (that are being presented to me) are for the filters I bought a day ago! They not only know about my purchase history but they are trying to influence my future behavior and this site does not even own the media! How much more influence would they have if they do own the media! Click on the image below to see it full size and read the Ads for the EXACT water filter I was searching for a day ago.
Though it is true that this the “art” of selling through technology is everywhere on the Internet, just think how influential a foreign government can become when they control not just the small ad bar but the whole media!
Some things should not be for sale to foreigners. Among these items should be a list of all our news and communication media, military and space exploration hardware, some of our software used for military and space exploration and I am sure the list can get much longer.
