Just found this online while going over some extra SOTU stuff...

Members of Congress chided the U.S. Department of Justice today for suggesting a new law requiring Internet companies to keep records of user activity, but not disclosing details on how it should be crafted to aid criminal investigations.

Personally, it makes me sick to my stomach to think legislation like this will actually get through after a little bit of political buffing. Professionally I'm not surprised in the least this is happening, even in law school I had instructors telling us it was the next step of control for the population. (Yes the word used was CONTROL)

Sadly, the internet companies, most of which would go out of business, because the customer base wouldn't allow themselves to be recorded, shopping for sex toys, watching porn...ordering guns supplies. Its not the governments business to know all the " doings" of its people.
