    No, not even the British were that brazen, but American Neo-Marxists are

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

    Proposed law scheduled for a vote next week originally increased Americans' e-mail privacy. Then law enforcement complained. Now it increases government access to e-mail and other digital files."

    Doesn't matter, doesn't matter, doesn't matter. Nothing matters, nothing can be done. I quit watching the news, because nothing matters, nothing can be done. Hope is lost.

    I was under the impression they already could, besides, if you are doing nothing wrong you have nothing to worry about.

    What a piece of shit bill. I'm surprised it was a democrat that proposed it though, it sounds like a typical republican idea. Oh well, one more reason why there's no diffence between the parties. They both hate your freedoms.

    More like republicans circa 2004. It's what they all said when people complained about the patriot act and other domestic spying.

    I'm reading the bill and I do not see where a warrant is not required.

    Bill Text - 112th Congress (2011-2012) - THOMAS (Library of Congress)

    From Section 3:
    Section 4 permits the government to delay telling the subject of the warrant their email has been searched in certain conditions:

    .

    The OP link links to a hearing Leahy is supposedly having for this bill, but the link is for a hearing for H.R. 2471: Bill Text - 112th Congress (2011-2012) - THOMAS (Library of Congress)

    That bill has nothing to do with warrantless searches of electronic communications.


    It annoys me to no end when a panicky article about our rights being violated does not specify the bill they are talking about. How fucking hard is it to give the HR or S number of the fucking bill?

    Seriously. It suggests they are talking out of their ass and don't want you to find out for yourself.

    But thankfully, you don't have to show ID when you vote or when you're Illegal and get pulled over by a cop

    "...the department of Justice had argued in court that warrantless tracking should be permitted because Americans enjoy no "reasonable expectation of privacy" in their, or at least their cell phones', previous locations."

    "The Vermont Democrat said that in his previous career as a prosecutor he had to obtain search warrants to search someone's house. "I question whether it should be that much different if I'm going to search all your files" in electronic form..."
