    "The government is increasingly monitoring Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites for tax delinquents, copyright infringers and political protesters. A public interest group has filed a lawsuit to learn more about this monitoring, in the hope of starting a national discussion and modifying privacy laws as necessary for the online era."

    Oh it is even worse over here in Western Australia, we had a plumber fined because he was on his Facebook page telling people he was a plumber and if they needed plumbing call him.

    He did not put his license number down on the site, and so he was fined.

    I am a drunk, sexually promiscuous, some would call be a sinner, but I thank the good Lord above and the indifferent Darwin in my genes below that I am not a government bureaucrat.

    that's OK I am monitoring them..and assessing their threat level...NSA is on my favorites list along with the CIA ..homeland security..and the FBI...I e-mail them regularly and when on a cell phone to start the conversation it is always fun to throw in keywords "HI JACK that ARAB girl the CLUB was the BOMB totally FLY..DEAD PRESIDENTS until Monday and we will go out and TERRORIZE again tonight ?" the best defence is a good offence...drown them in white noise

    What did you expect? With the renewal and strengthening of the Patriot Act and FISA the Democrats are more likely to abuse it against their own citizens instead of using it to find and kill bad guys. Terrorists don't exist remember? They are just disgruntled citizens of the world.

    I say the name Osama Bin Ladin, and chant death to America in every phone conversation I have. But then I babble on about wanting to fuck Angelina Jole and I think the NSA moves on.

    I am trying, but the world makes it so hard, so very hard.

    Still, I am not ready to step off this ride just yet.

    Nobody wants to step off the ride...but circumstances facilitate it to one degree or another.

    Well if their monitoring people for subscribing to a certain ideology then thats kinda wrong... even if it is the likes of the crazy, retarded, idiots from Stormfront.

    However the fact of the matter is that anything you or other people put on facebook is public content and the government is perfectly within its authority to search facebook for pictures, information, etc about people.
