Google Defies Justice Snooping
By Elaine Meinel Supkis
One of Yahoo's "most popular articles" remains the news that Google is defying Justice Dept. snooping. The excuse for this snooping is just plain silly. They want to see how many people Googled "hot sex teens" for crying out loud. Geeze, don't these guys have girlfriends? Seems cops and government lawyers don't get enough excuses to look up "hot sex teens" sites while at work. Are they given rain coats while doing this, to fold over their laps?
Right-to-privacy groups said on Friday an attempt by the Bush administration to force Google Inc. (GOOG.O: Quote, Profile, Research) to turn over a broad range of materials from its databases set a dangerous precedent that should worry all Americans.Correct. Only it isn't a camel's nose, it is an elephant trunk attached to some of the nastiest sexual deviants on the planet earth. These snoopy jerks drove America into impeaching Clinton over a stupid blowjob, for example, while at the same time, screaming at us to look away as they whack off on telephone poles and skinny right wing loudmouth broads.
"This is the camel's nose under the tent for using search engines and all kinds of data aggregators as surveillance tools," said Jim Harper of the libertarian Cato Institute who also runs Privacilla.org, an Internet privacy database.
Give me a break.
In court papers filed on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in San Jose, the Justice Department stated that Google had refused to comply with a subpoena issued last year for one million random Web addresses from Google's databases as well as records of all searches entered on Google during any one-week period.Why would the Supreme Whores revisit this case? So some of them can leave a hair or two on a drink again? Heh. Or maybe give O'Reilly another opportunity to falafel us in public? Didn't Justice unveil the Whore of Justice in the main building? Geeze, give her the nine headed Beast and make it One and All.
The government said it needed the information to prepare its case to revive the 1998 Child Online Protection Act, which the Supreme Court blocked from taking effect two years ago.
Anyway, their favorite topic, sex, is again, their favorite topic over there.
But others were not reassured. Massachusetts Rep. Edward Markey, the ranking Democrat on the telecommunications subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said he would introduce a bill to strengthen consumers' Internet privacy by prohibiting the storage of personally identifiable information Internet searches beyond a reasonable time.You know, there were dirty books back in 1789. So why did our Founding Fathers insert the 1st amendment and made it first? Of course, the French never needed an amendment assuring them the right to look at dirty pictures since they have freely exercised this right since they began painting pictures and carving statues back about 45,000 years ago.
"Internet search engines provide an extraordinary service, but the preservation of that service does not rely on a bottomless, timeless database that can do great damage despite good intentions," Markey said.
Chris Jay Hoofnagle of the Electronic Privacy Information Center worried that the government could follow up its initial request with a demand for more information.
"If Google hands over the search logs and the Justice Department finds search strings like 'child porn' or 'naked children,' could they not then go back and ask Google for the user's Internet address?" he said.
We need protection here from people who believe we all want to look at baby Jesus and his mother who had sex with a bird who impregnated her....Oh well, Leda and the swan without sex. Yup.
On the other side, the Cincinnati-based National Coalition for Protection of Children and Families, a Christian fundamentalist group, said search companies should be willing to help the government defend children from pornography.I have this amazing ability to remember my childhood. We wanted to see nakkid pictures so we would rifle through parental bedrooms and more often than not, find something hot to giggle over, since we thought these pictures were D-U-M-B. Laugh, hahaha. Worse, one of my playmate's fathers was a surgeon and he had a book on sexual diseases with photos.
"I'm disappointed Google did not want to exercise its good corporate branding to secure the protection of youth," said Jack Samad, the group's senior vice president.
Ick. Hey, it wsa good for learning about siphylus and why it was good to avoid. Ever see the autopsy of a syphillic? Ech.
Anyway, kids had an even better snooping tool: going around, eavesdropping and sneaking looks at the neighbors when the bed was shaking or better still, watching horses or dogs go at it. Heck, cats.
Chickens. I saw alot of this stuff. But then, maybe I am weird, with this memory thing.
Anyway, lay off the net, you jerks. Bad enough we had to hear the details of Bill C's sex life.
