    Oh hell. I hack into his e-mail all the time. He's quite boring, actually.

    The government has been hacking into e-mail, trying to find terrorists for decades, ever since the early days. This can't be news! You should read "Digital Fortress" by Dan Brown. There's probably more truth than poetry in the story. You also know that the police in Boston used all that surveillance footage to catch the two terrorists. Would you rather have them gone free? We live in the digital age, and it's open, one way or another, to almost anyone with some hacking skills.

    “The US Department of Justice and the FBI believe they don't need a search warrant to review Americans' e-mails, Facebook chats, Twitter direct messages and other private files, internal documents reveal,” wrote McCullagh, citing a government documents obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union and provided to CNET.
    The problem here is its not Justice for the government to start going into peoples Facebooks and Twitters without contacting them first. Its a unnecessary invasion of privacy. To believe that you don't need a search warrant is really the same to say "I don't need to buy this car off the lot before I drive it, I'll just steal it and drive it."

    This reminds me of something that North Korea would do.

    I like Obama, I really do. And not because of his stupid campaign slogans meant to sway voters too stupid to know anything about policy positions. I genuinely agree with, and support quite of few of the man's ideas.

    But recently, what's with his damn obsession with pushing invasive freedom limiting policy?!

    I understand him not being constrained by the possibly of another re-election, but jeeze...

    Well, in Canada we don't have that kind of thing because its Illegal and no politician in the Chamber of Commons(United State Congress equivalent) support that.



    The Criminal Code, R.S.C. 1985, c. C-46 [Criminal Code] imposes a general prohibition on interception (recording) of private communications, but then provides an exception where one of the parties to the private communication consents to the interception of that communication. Thus, broadly speaking, Canadians can legally record their own conversations with other people, but not other peoples' conversations that they are not involved in.

    Reminds me off all the stuff in "The Patriot Act".

    From what I learned from the government if they are "planning" something, they are doing it already in some capacity. For example the drone that went down in Iran a few years back. It didn't exist until it crashed. I saw a segment on the news not too long ago about a huge data facility in Utah. That is to collect data from overseas traffic, but has enough capacity to track the entire USA and more. Pretty sure our data will be going there at some point if not already. Not that I personally am worried about who checks my internet activities. I highly doubt this site, a Jeep forum and EBay will make me #1 on the FBI list. But the facility was pretty awesome, kinda like a area 51 for data collection. I am by no means a conspiracy theorist, or a paranoid individual.
