But. It’s. For. The. War. On. Terror.
The ACLU filed the FOIA request in November following media reports that federal officials were using Americans’ cellular phones to pinpoint their locations without a warrant or any court oversight, the groups said. Some government officials at the time said they did not need probable cause to obtain tracking information from mobile phones. In addition, the reports said some federal law enforcement agents had obtained tracking data from wireless carriers without any court oversight.
Let me be very clear about this. Around 90% of the time I find the ACLU to be one of the most disgusting organizations in this country. But, when they do things like this, I cheer them head on. Protecting my privacy is very important to me. The Federal Government has no right to be doing this. Especially without a warrant.
And here’s the money quote “Signing up for cell phone services should not be synonymous with signing up to be spied on and tracked by the government,” she said in a statement.
Amen to that sister. These “Law and Order” types need to take a class on the Constitution. And God knows, I don’t need the evil known as the Federal Government listening to my conversations.
Update: My friends over at Stop The ACLU are telling us not to get “paranoid” about this. You know, I just can’t buy that anymore. We need to be very vigilant about the Governments involvement in our lives. And no, this not for “my own good”. This is what we have been ripping England about for so long. But now that it’s coming here, people are accepting it.
I will not Bow Down to the coming Police State.
