BullBearMS: erik-k: Mugato: cman: Well, Obama, now it is your move.

I doubt Obama personally knew what the IRS was doing, but now that it is out, he needs to take care of this shiat right away.

You just had to immediately jump into the "Obama" thing like a dick. Like the Mcain regime would have been a personal freedom utopia.

Since we're only locked in a room with an opened 30lb box of rape instead of a 40lb box of rape, he's a dick for pointing out that maybe we should insist on not being in a room with boxes of rape at all?

Obama has seriously been one of the worst presidents in memory on electronic rights. I don't think his administration has ever met a "we don't need a warrant, because the Internet" argument it didn't lovingly fellate. If a future president it worse, it'll be because the bar's been set to so low he tripped over it.

Lovingly fellate is exactly right.

The Obama administration is urging the Supreme Court to halt a legal challenge weighing the constitutionality of a once-secret warrantless surveillance program targeting Americans' communications


The Obama administration is urging the Supreme Court to allow the government, without a court warrant, to affix GPS devices on suspects' vehicles to track their every move.


The Obama administration told a federal court Tuesday that the public has no "reasonable expectation of privacy" in cellphone location data, and hence the authorities may obtain documents detailing a person's movements from wireless carriers without a probable-cause warrant.


The Obama administration is seeking to make it easier for the FBI to compel companies to turn over records of an individual's Internet activity without a court order


The Obama administration is drawing up plans to give all U.S. spy agencies full access to a massive database that contains financial data on American citizens and others who bank in the country, according to a Treasury Department document seen by Reuters.

and of course most relevant to ...

Weaver, GAT, Serious Black and others will still defend Obama. Just not in this thread.

Kittypie070: Might be a good idea to use PGP.

GnuPG is an open source alternative to PGP. Combine it with the Enigmail add-on for Thunderbird  and you should be set.

As always. if you wouldn't want it sent on a postcard through the mail, then don't send it through unencrypted email.
