DOJ Pressures ISPs to Store Your Browsing History
Closed door meetings with CEOs held last Friday
by Karl Bode 01:59PM Tuesday May 30 2006
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales pressured telecom officials in a closed door meeting to retain the on-line activity records of their customers, CNET has learned. The AG told the CEOs of leading service providers that the administration would like ISPs to store two years worth of customer browsing records. During the meeting, Justice Department officials passed around pixelated images of child porn to try and show the types of criminal activity the DOJ says they'd be fighting against.

Re: MARCH on WASHINGTON

I would not disagree with your perception of my statement .

Since the "leaders" of this country appear unable or unwilling to heed the will of the people who elected them, the time may well come again when the people say "Enough is enough" as loudly as our forefathers did.

I don't want terrorists to be able to strike our shores and our citizens (or any other country or their citizens) anymore than the next sane person, but this slow but constant loss of personal privacy in the name of preventing possible terrorism is nothing but horse pucky.

It's clear the our current President and the members of his administration feel they have carte blanche to do whatever they feel like with our laws and rights as long as it's wrapped in the banner of terrorism prevention (or preventing pedos for that matter). What a crock.

There is not one politician on a national or state level that I would trust to wash my car, never mind govern with a mind towards actually doing what the constituents want, instead of telling the constituents what to do. The same goes for local politicians, at least where I live. It's well known in my city that if you want a good laugh, watch the Aldermans' meeting on the Local Access channel.

Please forgive the semi rant. I generally keep my political views to myself, but frankly, this future scares me.

The real reason

PedoPorn is just the action line to sell this. The RIAA and MPAA has wanted this kind of information for years. They will file a freedom of information request and get your name what you downloaded and so on. States will want this info to see if you failed to pay sales tax on on line purchases. Newspapers will want this info so they can get dirt on somebody they want to screw over, Of course the Justice department can leak dirt about somebody which, if it is somebody they hate, the press will print this in banner headlines Senator (R)Joe Evil visits sites which show pictures of naked dogs and cats. This porno connection isn't fooling anyone

Re: obseard

Heh.. unless he only pays $200's of taxes because he only makes $500's every other week.

People who pay a lot of taxes because they make a lot of money always make me laugh at how they wish they didn't. I WISH I PAID a TON of taxes. Imagine how much you'd be making if you were paying millions in taxes?

Re: Civil Disobedience

said by clickie8:

I think that the ultimate tool against such invasive measures is a free screensaver that goes out to the major search engines, picks some random words out of a dictionary interspersed with common child porn words and starts spidering the results. Twenty-four hours per day, 365 days per year. They'll never be able to store all the results, let alone parse through them when thousands of people use something like this.

I'm all for stopping child porn; but you're not wiping your ass with the Constitution to do it. Then again, this has nothing to do with child porn. Oh, right now it does. Then we'll move onto terrorism, hate speech and then onto Libertarians, Democrats, left-leaning Republicans...you name it.
That's pretty much there Goal Im betting.Its for the children really am i the only one sick of hearing that come out of these Fascist's every day.
