CyberCrime vs. Drug Cartels

Funny article (not really in a ha-ha way, moe like an ick way) about how online crime is supposedly now a bigger business than an international drug cartel.   http://connections.thepodcastnetwork.com/2008/10/04/connections-041-blocking-the-hacker-attacks/ If you want to fix the credit mess, start taxing hackers at hotel tax rates (15%) and have all that money be used to buy shares of the embattled credit giants.  This would infuse those companies with the cash they claim they don’t have to lend to ma’ and pa’ middle American while at the same time not causing each man, woman and child in this country to borrow $2,500 against our children’s deficit.  Now, I’m not saying that Cyber Crime “families” wouldn’t just steal their 15% back…  But it’s a start.  😉
