Nemesisghost writes "Obama is asking Congress to not change the law that gives law enforcement access to your emails stored in the cloud that are older than 6 months. Google, AOL, AT&T and other companies are urging a change in the law(Electronic Communications Privacy Act) pass in 1986 to reflect the change in technology."

"Obama wants?" when I read that headline I imagined a redneck stereotype at a Tea Party rally saying it.

Any person with three living brain cells KNOWS the 4th amendment is there to protect communications as well as property. What Obama and the Justice department wants should be irrelevant.

The Obama administration and its predecessor regard Constitutional protections as annoyances that must be constantly chipped away at.

"When I got out, there were, I'm gonna say, four uniformed FBI police officers. I could tell by the patch on their uniform - badge and gun. They were in a circle talking with the D.C. police officer. Another officer - off to my right - said the woman works with them and she called," says Bagnall.

Records show the MPD officer cited the woman, Joy Mullinax of Woodbridge, Virginia, for changing lanes without caution.

"She probably did change lanes without caution. She also hit two pedestrians, a second car, and attempted to flee the scene of an accident. I don't understand why the police couldn't put those things together," says Silber, who has filed a lawsuit on behalf of the men.
