    The republican majority hasn't even started their agenda and George Soros is giving lefties all sorts of things to get angry (and violent?) about. Like kiddie porn lefties? The GOP is trying to keep your kids safe.

    From the article


    If you read the whole article you can see that cnet, much like myself, does not like the progressive republicans that are still up in congress.

    This is a tough one. Is your privacy worth the lives of your neighbors if one of these intrusive surveillance methods IDs a mass murderer?
    IMHO Google knows more about me than my wife, not to mention Microsoft.
    Tell me that you think that no one, not even the NSA (remember Janet Reno's "Carnivore" program?) ever looks at where you surf? Who you email? Who you chat with?

    If all you know is that every keystroke and mouse click you make is monitored, you'd be well advised to think before you surf.

    No offense, but this isn't news.

    So, this is one of those, "We're only doing it for your own good" kind of things?

    Do we thank them now or wait for them to come knocking on our door the first time we say that Republicans are no better than Democrats?

    Agreed, it's not a democrat vs republican thing, it's this progressive bullshit that is/has fucked things up.

    WASHINGTON--The FBI is pressing Internet service providers to record which Web sites customers visit and retain those logs for two years, a requirement that law enforcement believes could help it in investigations of child pornography and other serious crimes.

    FBI Director Robert Mueller supports storing Internet users' "origin and destination information," a bureau attorney said at a federal task force meeting on Thursday.

    and for the record i don't have a problem with this, they can keep my site visits till the cows come home. That does not mean they will get to see them without appropriate oversight.

    No it's not really that tough at all. Giving more power to government is generally not a good idea.
