Because freedom can't protect itself
Altogether you people try your hardest to take away my rights of my christian faith. You are suppose to portect people like me, and you don't. The whole organization tries to tear out the roots of the christian faith in this country, and this country was founded on the christian faith. And to be frank, I am sick of it. One day though soon when the Lord does come back, you'll get everything that is coming to you!!!!!!!!!!!
If this has to do with the way Google keeps records of every search that is done on their site, I don't have a problem with it. I love programs like Forensic Files and other true crime shows, and a good deal of these crimes are solved because of a search the alledged criminal did on Google. If the person who wrote this post is speaking of something entirely different, please correct me of my error.
I hope you guys fry in hell and before that get tried in court for treason. Exposing our agents to the enemy is endangering our military and my buddies overseas. You friggin' assholes....
Regarding the Google Book Scenario...if you have nothing to hide then why care who is following behind you watching every move you make? Paranoia will destroy ya! Find something better to do with your time...like get a job!
The privacy issue is very important, but in the bigger picture, Google will have a virtual monopoly on written manuscripts, even those now in the public domain. They will have the power to control what books can be accessed online. Trusting one company with this power, with little oversight, is a disaster waiting to happen.
I am generally quite libertarian in my thinking. But if someone tried to check out or search for "Chrysler building blueprints", "Anarchist's catechisis" and "home made explosives" in rapid succession, I surely would not want them to be able to remain anonymous.
It's simple, unfortunately is not so simple because we cannot trust the people with access to the information. This has been demonstrated over and over.
If they have nothing to hide I guess our wing nut friends won't object to being subject to body cavity searches.
