US Government Wants More Information On YOU!

June 1 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. is asking Internet companies including Microsoft Corp., Google Inc. and AOL to preserve records of customers' Web activity to aid terrorism and child pornography investigations.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and FBI Director Robert Mueller made the request last week at a meeting with industry executives, said Brian Roehrkasse, a Justice Department spokesman. More talks are scheduled for today and tomorrow. Also included in the discussions are representatives from victims' rights groups, privacy advocates and law enforcement officials, he said.

``We have begun initial discussions with Internet service providers and others on this issue of data retention to help the department with bolstering its investigative efforts,'' said Roehrkasse.
Every day this administration finds another avenue to gather and retain records on all US citizens. McCarthy did it with Communism, J. Edgar Hoover just did it, and President GW Bush uses terrorism. The three of them are perfectly comfortable in the same sentence.

It's amazing how the Bush administration spends multi-million dollars on spyware to get information from us, and it's still easier to be seduced into giving away information by strippers. And at a lower cost!
