What would the people of the United States think if the executive chairman of Google was somehow named “CEO of America?”
Beyond being unconstitutional and likely legally impossible, one of the founders of the Occupy Wall Street movement has called upon President Obama to appoint Eric Schmidt “CEO of America.” The move also would mean Obama would step down as President.
Justine Tunney, a software engineer at Google, made the request in a petition, which as of Monday had only 29 signatures.
Tunney also wants a national referendum so voters can approve: retiring all government employees with full pensions, and then transferring authority to the tech industry – which would apparently administer the nation.
“I have the utmost respect for you Sir,” she tells Obama in the online petition. “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.”
Meanwhile, Tunney’s new role at Google has gotten the interest of those who followed her activism while working with the Occupy movement, which was aimed at the nation’s corporations and wealthiest individuals.
Yasha Levine, a reporter for Silicon Valley’s Pando Daily, claims that Tunney used to be an anarchist – but now, at Google, “she has become an ‘astroturfer’ par excellence for the company, including showing up in a comment section to bash my reporting on Google’s vast for-profit surveillance operation.”
