Feds want your Internet records

Grand Haven Tribune

 

"The federal government wants your Internet provider to keep track of every Web site you visit. For more than a year, the U.S. Justice Department has been in discussions with Internet companies and privacy rights advocates, trying to come up with a plan that would make it easier for investigators to check records of Web traffic. The idea is to help law enforcement track down child pornographers. But some see it as another step toward total surveillance of citizens, joining warrantless wiretapping, secret scrutiny of library records and unfettered access to e-mail as another power that could be abused." (01/08/07)

Posters thoughts: Should we get a total turn hard to Right or Left in the uS, can imagine industrial strength policing powers could eventually be used to shut off and down then currently un-PC websites, or block access to known non-compliant persons.

 

Every Law passed, every regulation enforced has that nasty "Unintended Consequence" that is never forseen at time of its enactment..

 

This bit of bullshit is 'not good' for Freedom.

Way back (okay not so way back) when I ran my ISP they were kicking around these ideas in the name of protecting some group or another. I always said that if I was still running the business when they inacted any of these "protections" I would close it. I'm not in business to do the work of the police (yes, if in the course of my business I came across illegal activity I'd deal with it but it was my option to do so...and abusing children would definately be reported without some law).

 

The old chestnut of "if you haven't done anything wrong then you don't have anything to hide" just doesn't cut it. They can stay the hell out of my business unless I invite them in (and then only for the thing I invite them in for). I feel that I'm becoming the minority on this.
