|The federal government wants Google to turn over its search records in an effort to fight porn. Thankfully, Google has refused.|
So let me get this straight.
Feds: "Hey Google... we want you to turn over your records on millions of user search queries. No, we don't have any specific query in mind. No, we don't have any specific user in mind. We don't even know if we'll find anything at all. We just wanna look. We have a subpoena for you."
Google: "A constitutional violator says 'what'?"
Isn't this the very definition of unreasonable search and seizure? Do we need to give the Justice Department a lesson on the Fourth Amendment here?
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
This is yet another example of how privacy rights are being eroded by the current administration. And this time, it's not even about terror... it's about good old, clean, healthy PORN.
Do me a favor, kids: click the following link to get some interesting data into Google's history.

|I watched (gulp) ABC news last night because they were interviewing Larry Page and Sergey Brin INSIDE the Google wunderland, and the heavily-makeupped interviewer roboman kept asking questions like, "Should people be afraid of your incredible wealth and power?" and "So I hear terrorists can use your Google maps to locate potential targets..." Investigative journalism at its finest!|
