Big Brother gets bigger!

First, records on library patrons' Internet use then domestic spying and now billions of records on Internet search engine requests. This is not about gardening but I feel it is important to write about the egregious and highly intrusive probing into our private lives by this administration. The extreme right's argument has always been "if you're not doing anything wrong, you don't have to worry" the oldest most ridiculous statement in the world which has become a proverb for the extreme right. I would counter that with "give and inch and they'll take a foot".

Kudos to Google for fighting the order to give the Justice Dept. billions of search request records and millions of web addresses.

And Shame on YAHOO, MSN and AOL for easily caving in and complying with the order.

Our constitutional rights are being slaughtered and we remain mute in our defense. A sad situation. You should be outraged!
