Waiting impatiently for Google's press release on this.

And, NightLight, maybe it has come to this, but warrantless spying remains unjust.

And, is there anyone around foolish enough to believe this is all the Government might ever do with this technology? Chipping away, chipping away...

NightLife, you say your life is not important, and thats what tyrants want you to think. Everyone's life is important, and nobody has the right to violence. All violence is terrorism, even the violence of little men in uniforms and shiny boots is terrorism.

FBI have been given way too much power to tap into people's lives. Especially the innocent's. How many times the innocent have been wrongly accused of a crime and the hassle of going to courts to prove it. Once your name been dragged through mud it's very hard to go back to the way it was with your life.

Nightlight is the biggest kind of ass hole. His stupidity affects us all.

I wonder what Nightlight would think if in ten years he won a position in public office and was told by the Feds that if he didn't play ball, they would release his old porn surfing habits to the media?

Knowledge is power, and a powerful government is dangerous.

Infact Nightlife, them listening to you would cost lives as it would be time wastes. It's there job to find the correct targets, get a warrant, and go from there. It's like the NSA and the call logs...what a waste of government resources. Instead of logging every US citizen, why not only log who's calling numbers with county codes that openly support terrorism? Save time, money and might catch terrorism without sacrificing everyone's freedom. But hey, that requires profiling and we CAN'T do that can we?

this isnt important. dont put yourself in position for them to want to hear what you got to say and its not a problem. its not like they are listening to you because they want to.

Nightlight - when you say that's OK, after a decade of doing it, they expand it to more crimes. Next they'll be using surveillance to monitor drug related crimes. After that, general crimes, after that, all crimes. So long as no one protests and are convinced that it's for the greater good, it will happen. Now you might be thinking "I'm not a criminal anyway." however, "all crimes" will include anything they deem illegal. Certain sex acts with your wife are currently illegal, and by some religions, anything but missionary style. New laws are being added daily making more and more things illegal. Our countries started out free and are slowly heading to a different kind of communism.

"First they came..." a poem by pastor Martin Niemöller
"First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Catholic.

Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me."

I don't believe that human life is special, especially not mine, 7 billion people on Earth prove that; and if my life should be taken because of a terrorist bombing that could have been prevented by violating thousands of American's constitutional rights... then I accept my fate. Freedom isn't free and it sickens me that so many of my fellow countrymen are so scared of dying that they would rather live a few more years in the Matrix instead of living free. You dishonor our soldiers and you dishonor the memory of what this country was founded on.
