    Senate bill rewrite lets feds read your e-mail without warrants

    Proposed law scheduled for a vote next week originally increased Americans' e-mail privacy. Then law enforcement complained. Now it increases government access to e-mail and other digital files.

    Stop trolling and trying to start a flame war in every thread. If you have nothing to add, don't post.

    Kirk? Kirk's kirkiness has practically nothing to do with politics. He exists outside the conventional Democrat/Republican battle

    I don't understand what the problem is. He just posted a legitimate article, about a legitimate issue.

    I'm gonna give the kid one of them likes.

    Every thread you've ever made is trolling. So how about you stop crying like a little bitch with a skinned knee and take your hits. Sack up Nancy.

    This is a pretty big issue. Luckily the bill was retracted after the outrage started.

    I was reading about this one myself... was a legit concern. Imagine if you inadvertantly got on some government douchebag's radar, and he decided to scope out everything you put online? With this bill, he could do it with absolutely no consequence. Kirk is right to point this one out. It's something our government is actively trying to push through. Thank doG the backlash shot it down before it could grow legs.

    Perhaps you could invite the government over to your house and get them to do a warrantless search of that safe you have there buddy.

    I've always assumed that every email and phone call is logged into an NSA supercomputer for further use in the future.
