    I'm going to compose and send an email right now.

    It will read something like this:

    "Fuck You Obama"

    Let'em read it, again and again...

    Thats the nice thing about mailing a letter these days....

    I would like to hear our residence statists explain how America is not turning a into a police state.

    Despite their claims to the contrary they WANT a police state. They feel the need to control others lives down to the smallest detail. They want us all forced to think and march in lock step.

    Good luck with that. I'm waiting for the "Bush started it" comments to fly.
  7. Apparently this is no problem for Team Obama, dems, and leftists in general. One would think, listening to their rhetoric, that they would be outraged. But judging from their actions from this not so little intrusion, to determining what we should eat, we can see they want to control every aspect of our lives. This from the freedom loving leftist Patrick Leahy. One can only imagine the media riot had a republican put this bill forward.

    A Senate proposal touted as protecting Americans' e-mail privacy has been quietly rewritten, giving government agencies more surveillance power than they possess under current law.

    CNET has learned that Patrick Leahy, the influential Democratic chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee, has dramatically reshaped his legislation in response to law enforcement concerns. A vote on his bill, which now authorizes warrantless access to Americans' e-mail, is scheduled for next week.

    Leahy's rewritten bill would allow more than 22 agencies -- including the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Federal Communications Commission -- to access Americans' e-mail, Google Docs files, Facebook wall posts, and Twitter direct messages without a search warrant. It also would give the FBI and Homeland Security more authority, in some circumstances, to gain full access to Internet accounts without notifying either the owner or a judge.

    We are closer to the George Orwell's world than we think. The orchestrated economic collapse could bring it about.
