I actually agree with you here; I'm dead against any more government intervention into our lives. And the sickeningly ubiquitous ". . . for the children" line got old about ten years ago. Although, if you're honest, you'll acknowledge that the liberals made trading on that standard political fare. Nancy Pelosi surrounded herself with the little "human shields" during her swearing in ceremony. Sickening.

Even better, Smails, was Tom Reynolds of western New York, who surrounded himself with the same child-net when the Foley scandal hit the media. He refused to answer questions about the scandal, indicating that it was not proper to do so with children (that he trucked in) around. As I recall, the pundits were too sharp for him, and caught him between a rock and a hard place, forcing him to answer questions.

Now, on to the next point...all servers already record every bit of information that passes by. If you send me an email, it will be handled by at least five servers, and be recorded on each one. The key is to keep the government's hands off the info. As for me, I'd like to know what Lamar Smith is hiding! Why else would he go to so much trouble to throw us off the scent?

This is less about privacy and more about the intimidation of freedom of speech.
That will be the result of this legislation.....and the lemmings of this country will
welcome it, as it is un-American now to hurt someone's feelings with your
opinion. We see that here with Jennifer Mario, who now moderates individual
postings to ensure they are all politically correct to her Big Sister worldview.

There are more Jennifer Marios living in this country now than ever before, who
not only have no understanding of the history of this country, but also no concept
of how these cultural shifts that they promote themselves will lead us to a
system that the Soviet Union could have only dreamed of. Modern technology
will make the USA one of the most oppresive and murderous regimes in the
history of the world............but..........."think of the children"......

I want to applaud William Wolfrum for speaking about this topic in a Golf forum. Many people would say such talk is out of place, but something as fundamental as our basic privacy deserves to take priority over golf for 4 minutes. Who wants anyone to know our real handicap anyway!

No, RonMon, servers do not routinely retain "every bit of information that passes by". They can, and a few may. Most servers DO keep the IP addresses (equivalent to the information on the outside of an envelope) for a few hours or a few months. Likewise for the URL information of websites we travel to - although that practice is no widespread at this time.

But it IS possible to do so, and that is what Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez has been angling for for over a year. Whenever some crisis occurs in the White House, he can be counted on to attempt to divert attention from the current issue by trotting out yet another Save the Children press conference.

The fact is child molestation and such have dramatically declined since 1990. Parents and relatives are by FAR much more likely to molest a child than a complete stranger, recidivism for child molesters is among the lowest for all crimes, there are no satanic ritual abuse cults raping babies.

These are lies used to foment hysteria to scare a population into compliance and government control.

Now Mike has offered the contact information to protest this latest attempt to create Big Brother. CALL THEM!

Okay, what's this "supplied comment is invalid" garbage again? I'm going to stop frequenting this site if you don't get the system straightened out. I'm not going to waste time writing out posts that the system won't post for some mysterious reason.

SS, I'm willing to bet my car that every server in the world, if asked to pull up a piece of information that passed through, can do it. That's why you don't put it in an email or anywhere else unless you want it to be seen.

The point of privacy is not to break the law. Anyone caught should be punished.

But privacy means that you still have some too.

try this.
