Take this for what it’s worth, but Occupy Wall Street co-founder and Google software engineer (seriously) Justine Tunney would like the feds to step aside and let the tech industry take over. The outspoken activist and Googler has proposed that the feds arrange a national vote calling on all government employees to retire and give the tech industry (not sure how this is defined or if I’d be appointed press security) all administrative authority under the leadership of would-be CEO of America Eric Schmidt.

Tunney posted the petition yesterday on the White House’s official website for such proposals. However, despite some press attention from The Guardian, her petition is drawing more laughs than signatures (assuming more than two people, myself included, have snickered at the proposal) with just two signatures at the time of writing. But hey, that’s only 99,998 signatures away from the amount required to prompt an official White House response!

The petition has one month to collect 100,000 digital signatures, but I’m thinking the White House, Eric Schmidt, and maybe even the Android robot should offer their take on this regardless of how many signatures are captured. Over the past year, we’ve been building up our collection of campaign material for a possible Eric Schmidt run as CEO of America in our Talking Schmidt series, and I couldn’t think of a more entertaining way to gather more priceless insight from the Google chairman.

Read the proposal in its entirety below and sign it here if you so desire..


Transfer all federal administrative authority to the tech industry.

Mister Obama,

I have the utmost respect for you Sir. America is a great country and you’ve worked hard to bring its affairs in order. But I’m afraid you’re fighting a battle that can’t be won. The Washington regime has become incompetent over the years. It is no longer able to face the difficult challenges that lay ahead. I think it’s time for a peaceful change.

I implore you to call a national referendum to do the following:

1. Retire all government employees with full pensions.

2. Transfer administrative authority to the tech industry.

3. Appoint Eric Schmidt CEO of America.

It’s time for the U.S. Regime to politely take its exit from history and do what’s best for America. The tech industry can offer us good governance and prevent further American decline.

—Justine Tunney

  1. Seriously – this is as bad as a dry joke.

  2. Someone needs to tell Justine Tunney two things: One, there is already a “CEO of America” position. It’s called President of the United States. Two, she’s a commie moron.

    This letter is bananas. However, it is interesting to speculate what the public opinion of the United States would be if it were a publicly traded company. Should they fire the entire board and do some insane downsizing? Or maybe start accepting bids for a buyout…

  4. “Mister Obama” says everything you need to know about this racist nutjob. I’m surprised that Google would retain someone so clearly mentally ill.
