In this article you can read how the government worked on Yahoo to turn over our information. Yahoo did fight hard but the government has a lot of power over the courts. In 2007 the US government amended a key law to demand user information from online services even tho it is unconstitutional. Yahoo was going to be fined $250,000 in fines per day if they didn’t comply. This is what the government will do, use it’s power on companies to turn over all private personal data.
We are living in a very close dictatorship and the public still doesn’t see it. The government will keep taking our freedoms one step at a time which is there plan.September 12, 2014 at 2:14 pm #24746
Another example of why the Federal Govt. has grown too large and too powerful. Our Founding Fathers had the right idea of a limited Federal Govt. but strong State governments.September 12, 2014 at 2:23 pm #24747
Agree, the State governments should control 90% of everything and the Federal only 10%. Also federal politicians need to have term limits of no more then two terms of 4 years. We also need the Federal government to have less agencies. Why do we need a Homeland Security when we have the FBI, what happen to the FBI. We also have the CIA.
We have to many.September 12, 2014 at 3:41 pm #24749
All of the agencies you listed are part of Homeland Security. (Always thought that was a creepy name.) The premise was that if we put them all under the same department they would share information. Guess what they were wrong. The agencies are constantly fighting, don’t trust each other, and share as little information as possible. Add the bone heads at TSA to the mix, and you have a real mess.
Homeland Security has done little to keep our country secure. The Boston Bombers left so many clues behind that the Fed’s went to interview them. The promised they wouldn’t do anything bad and the Fed’s went away. You know the result.
What it has done through the TSA is to make sure the citizens of this country automatically obey their oppressive orders even if they are not constitutional.September 12, 2014 at 8:31 pm #24759
Roadracer, Homeland Security is it’s own agency, they have there own agents, there own vehicles, there own weapons, and there own budget. They try to get info from all the agencies and orders them to give them the information. Homeland Security tries to have all the other agencies under there umbrella. The other agencies are there own agencies that are to inform the Homeland Security of all the info they know and you are right that they do not. They still are there own agencies. The Homeland Security has become a homeland military to control the people in the future.
