    Senate bill rewrite lets feds read your e-mail without warrants:

    Should this pass the house, will Obama sign it into law? After signing the NDAA and Patriot Act, odds are yes.

    Constitution smonstitution...the central planners know what's best for all of us...:doubt:

    Already a thread on this, seems to be BS.

    I'd like to believe you're correct. Do you have any evidence that this bill is not being considered?

    LOL!!! Typical! We're asked to prove a negative. Logical fallacies 'r us, eh?

    Argument from ignorance (appeal to ignorance, argumentum ad ignorantiam) – assuming that a claim is true (or false) because it has not been proven false (true) or cannot be proven false (true).

    Maybe just trying to make legal what they've been doing all along?

    The internet is not the venue for sensitive material to be passed back and forth. I have always assumed that any hack could get into my accounts and read my e-mail. People who think they can protect the privacy of internet accounts and corresponsdence are delusional.

    Hey, asshole. I'm not assuming anything. We have plenty of evidence that this bill is under serious consideration. Occupied suggested there was nothing to worry about, so I asked for something to support his position...because I hope he's correct.

    I agree. However, that does't mean I support the government gaining access to my personal documents without a warrant. There is good reason why that was a founding principal.

    Are you saying that the suggestion that government would actually aspire to have this power is bullshit? Or that they shouldn't be after this kind of power in the first place? Do you back this kind of intrusive government? What about about NDAA or the Patriot Act in general? How much police state do you enjoy?
