Oh... the man is earning my dislike and doing so on my dime.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The Bush administration, seeking to revive an online pornography law struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court, has subpoenaed Google Inc. for details on what its users have been looking for through its popular search engine.

The didn't get enough to blackmail any residual opposition into silence through the secret, warrantless wiretaps or sneak'n'peek searches. If Bush cared about sexual immorality the DynCorp child pimps would be in prison by now.

The government contends it needs the data to determine how often pornography shows up in online searches as part of an effort to revive an Internet child protection law that was struck down two years ago by the U.S. Supreme Court on free-speech grounds.

Well, they could use this: [#$%&-o-meter.com] or heck, ask a noted authority on the subject of Internet Porn....

Next Bush will want OWC's records to determine who's posting "disruptive" info here.

See you in Gitmo.

I suppose they'll next be asking Google how many queries were made for the word "bomb".

Now the government is clearly overreaching. It's one thing to
investigate an individual or organization, or set a general
trap. It's another to search every record of every person
hoping to find a crime. Way too much room for abuse here;
shades of clintonism.

Don't worry, Al - the IRS is sorting returns by party affiliation, so as long as yours shows a healthy GOP donation, you've nothing to fret. Now if yours shows a donation to Kerry's "Discount Every Vote" fund, AND you've been frequenting "Hot Teen Bimbos" your wife & employer may get an anonymous call inquiring if you have any other perversities.

If they're looking for searches on "huge @#$%&' I guess I'm a target as well.

You're safe, g'man. The first couple pages of a Google search for "huge @#$%&" are filled with pics of Rove & Cheney.

Gee! You act like their out to get everyone.

They're only asking for all Google searches and results for a week.

That's a well-defined request.

It's clearly within the scope of the unlimited executive powers defined by the new and improved Constitution. And even as they've exposed 29 white collar crimes through the use of unlimited wiretaps, I'm sure that eventually they'll dig through enough of it to find the one porn dog who justifies the entire attempt.

Arriving at the "he's earning my dislike" stage at this late date in his political career could mean that you've now reached a point in your personal political development that you'd allow that the missing 18 minutes of the Nixon tapes might not have been an accident, but could still have been if you wish really hard?

That what you mean Jimmy?
