    The Obama Administration wants the right to spy on our private thoughts. He's using terrorism as an excuse but at this moment he's trying to get the right to access your Blackberry and your emails.
    I remember when all hell broke loose when the NSA was caught data-mining. Now the White House wants the right to intercept and read our emails and text messages. Is this something you feel comfortable with? He already has the right to disconnect the internet in what he calls an emergency. Now he wants to be able to spy on whomever he chooses.

    At one time the DOJ had abandoned trying to invade our privacy but as has happened with anything else they've wanted they are now attempting to get it through other avenues. DOJ abandons warrantless attempt to read Yahoo e-mail | Politics and Law - CNET News

    First, Obama's a fucking Nazi

    Second, he's full of shit because the government already has access to all out email's IM's and everything else once you access the Internet.

    Third, Obama's a fucking Nazi

    It's the same as a wire tap. with the same requirements.

    much ado about nothing.

    Sickening and unfortunately not shocking. BIG Daddy Gubment wanting in our bizniss again.

    The government wants more freedom! Awsome.

    If these companies are forced to build a "back door" so to speak, would that not give hackers an avenue to get in there also?

    Obama is a liberal.

    Liberals want to be in everyone's business.

    Not even close.

    I don't give 2 turds in a toilet about big 0.

    but this is just paranoid ranting.

    It's only about giving the gov the chance to tap into criminals emails. nothing more.

    I guess you don't understand the wiretap laws and the legal proof of need law enforcement must show to secure a warrant.
    Is there the possibility of misuse? Oh course but that is true in all aspects of government. The punishment for such abuse is fairly dire if one is caught. We're in the 21st century, law enforcement is simply trying to keep abreast withing the framework of existing law.
