Facists always claim it's about national security!

WASHINGTON – Broad new regulations being drafted by the Obama administration would make it easier for law enforcement and national security officials to eavesdrop on Internet and e-mail communications like social networking Web sites and BlackBerries, The New York Times reported Monday.

The newspaper said the White House plans to submit a bill next year that would require all online services that enable communications to be technically equipped to comply with a wiretap order. That would include providers of encrypted e-mail, such as BlackBerry, networking sites like Facebook and direct communication services like Skype.

Federal law enforcement and national security officials say new the regulations are needed because terrorists and criminals are increasingly giving up their phones to communicate online.

"We're talking about lawfully authorized intercepts," said FBI lawyer Valerie E. Caproni. "We're not talking about expanding authority. We're talking about preserving our ability to execute our existing authority in order to protect the public safety and national security."

GR4U - If you read this, the tone would infer that they are NOT already spying on us all. Read a book entitled One Nation Under Surveillance by Boston T Party, and prepare to be stunned at the magnitude of data mining our friendly Imperial Government is already doing!

and yet, even the owners of these companies, comply.
Why? because they are in fear of being taxed out of existence.

I have little to add to that. The balls have been cut off the majority of this country. It shows in how little we actually fight back on this crap.

Eventually, they will push to far but how far in the future that is, and how it will come out is anyone's guess.
