I am almost for anything that will combat child porn. As for the portions shit maybe we should just tape their fat mouths shut or make them get on a scale before ordering food and if they are over their weight to height ratio then oh I don't know, SHOOT THEM.

its just that you KNOW the gov't will not just use the internet shit to stop child porn. You know they are going to use it to go after ALOT of other crap. The internet is FINE. Parents need to WATCH THEIR FUCKING KIDS AND BE REAL PARENTS. If you dont think the net is ok for your kid, dont let them use it! Its like the whole video game thing, parents expect the gov't to watch their kids.

well the credit card monitoring i dont have a problem with but when they wanna track every spec of what you do online that takes away your privacy whether they actively monitor it or not.

Any law that permits a previously illegal action in the name of one cause, automatically creates a precedent that makes it hard to say no when lawmakers want to do the same thing for something else.

ie, "You let us monitor to stop sexual predators, why not to stop terrorism? And after that, how about to combat music and software piracy?"

Of course, the NSA's already all seeing and all knowing, so it's kind of a moot point anyway.

Excuse me, seems there's someone at the door. Who could it be at this hour?

The government should stop watching us on the internet and start building a 25ft wall on our southern border. They should leave the child porn catching to the media and pay them a monthly fee for doing it and making prime time television on videos of them nabbing the sick bastards. It seems the media is the only group that catches these sick fucks and embarasses them to all hell and puts them in jail. I am 100% serious too, the government is just too damn slow and stupid to get anything complicated done, so I think they can handle brick laying and handing out money to CBS, FOX, ABC etc for catching child predators.
