So Much For Small Government

Is anyone surprised that it took mere days before the 112th Congress showed their true colors?

The House Republicans’ first major technology initiative is about to be unveiled: a push to force Internet companies to keep track of what their users are doing. A House panel chaired by Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin is scheduled to hold a hearing tomorrow morning to discuss forcing Internet providers, and perhaps Web companies as well, to store records of their users’ activities for later review by police.

    Good catch. The ‘Law & Order’ meme is a standard ploy to flog corporate prison profits…even when the infrastructure and tax base do not exist to service such a policy.
    Kindly note that the possibility of actually doing such a thing is something mocked as proposals by uninformed idiots. I’m reasonably sure Techdirt, for one, has expounded on the folly of legislating such.
