Big Brother is Watching

Well . . . . will be again after their lunch break.

“[Eric] Schmidt was a campaign advisor and major donor to Barack Obama, and when he announced he was leaving that perch, he planned to remain ‘at the forefront of Google’s government relations team.’ And Obama even has considered him for Commerce Secretary.  Schmidt was an informal advisor to the Obama presidential campaign and began campaigning the week of October 19, 2008, on behalf of the candidate.   He had been mentioned as a possible candidate for the chief technology officer position which Obama created in his administration.   After Obama won, Schmidt was a member of President Obama’s transition advisory board. He proposed that the easiest way to solve all of the problems of the United States at once, at least in the domestic policy, is by a stimulus program that rewards renewable energy and, over time, attempts to replace fossil fuels with renewable energy.   He has since become a new member of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology PCAST.”   Source – Wikipedia
