Republican's once again boldly defend our freedom

GOP pushing for ISPs to record user data

"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.
One focus will be on reviving a dormant proposal for data retention that would require companies to store Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for two years, CNET has learned."

Lieberman Will Not Run for Re-election

"Senator Joseph I. Lieberman will announce on Wednesday that he will not seek a fifth term, according to a person he told of his decision.
Mr. Lieberman, whose term is up in 2012, chose to retire rather than risk being defeated, said the person, who spoke to the senator on Tuesday.
“I don’t think he wanted to go out feet first,” the person said."

From high tech activist to ”a left-wing terror activist”

I met Rop Gonggrijp a few times here in Berlin, Germany a few years back. He was very personable/charismatic, and had pretty much dedicated his life to stopping governmental abuse of technology (mostly in Europe). In the Netherlands he showed on television how easily an electronic voting machine could easily be hacked, Campaigned against 'data-retention' and RFID's in Europe, helped Wikileaks release the "Collateral Murder" video, and a multitude of other 'techno-social' issues. He is one of those people who sees a problem and tries to do something about it and I never heard a bad thing about him. Well last week he was thrown into the Wikileaks scandal as “Julian Assange’s adjudant” and called a ”a left-wing terror activist”. It's kind of upsetting. If anything, he's one of the few people that I've met that was impressive by both their words and actions. Don't take my word on it, check it out for yourself. I just wanted to give you a heads up because this info is kinda off the radar.
