    Exclamation Another attack on privacy by the Current Administration

    washingtonpost.com

    Read the article and I can say I am not impressed with how far this administration is going to be able to find those that disagree with it. This is not a security measure but a privacy invasion. (NO I'M NOT JUST BEING PARANOID AND THIS AIN'T FUD)

    You may not be paranoid but I sure as hell am.

    I don't see the point. According to the article;

    The administration wants to add just four words -- "electronic communication transactional records" -- to a list of items that the law says the FBI may demand without a judge's approval. Government lawyers say this category of information includes the addresses to which an Internet user sends e-mail; the times and dates e-mail was sent and received; and possibly a user's browser history. It does not include, the lawyers hasten to point out, the "content" of e-mail or other Internet communication.
    If it does not include the content of the emails, what are they fishing for? They want to know that you visited porn sites, or GASP, USA Carry? Are they going to compile the list of names you comminicate with and put all of your Fantasy Football buddies on a watch-list? Some poor bastard from e-Bay sells my wife a Gucci purse and he's suddenly a potential terrorist?

    I really hope this does not go through - too much potential for abuse. Keep the judges as a check and balance. Hire more judges if need be.

    Troubling, but no surprise. The infamous Patriot Act was created after 9/11 in the name of Homeland Security. Now, in the name of internet security, terrorism and intelligence investigation (and the government will use the latest Wikileak incident to support their argument), the Electronic Communications Privacy Act will be expanded to further erode our individual privacy and freedoms.

    Of course it is bad news and of course most of us here are not surprised. The attack on the Constitution is accelerating.

    "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

    Unfortunately, those in power (B.O., his administration and Congress) believe themselves to be above the law, above the Constitution, above "we the people" and even above God!

    make sure you have your copies of the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence all on hand to shove in their faces. I for one will tell them when these mean nothing then you can take whatever you want and they will always mean something to me so........................!!!

    Festus I don't believe you're being paranoid at all when it concerns the current administration and control of the internet in some form. To change the law in that way is a definite privacy concern. Those who want can read the current law here:

    United States Code: Title 18,CHAPTER 121—STORED WIRE AND ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS AND TRANSACTIONAL RECORDS ACCESS | LII / Legal Information Institute
