Posted on 01/30/2012 11:16:54 AM PST by John Semmens
Representative John Mizuno (D-Oahu) is sponsoring a bill that would require all web sites to keep records of who visits their sites.
The government has a right to know who is reading/viewing what, Mizuno insisted. A lot of the stuff on the Internet is not supportive of the governments efforts to provide a safer and better life for the people. This could inspire mentally unbalanced persons to take dangerous actions that could interfere with these goals. We need to be able to spot this in advance if we are to avert an unwelcome turn of events.
The bill is opposed by the U.S. Internet Service Provider Association, whose CEO, Kate Dean, cited its violation of the Constitutions Fourth Amendment ban on unreasonable searches. Theres no provision in this bill requiring the state to show probable cause and obtain a warrant in order to secure access, Dean maintained. It pretty much gives the police the authority to poke its nose into anyones business whenever it chooses.
While conceding computer users concern over potential loss of privacy, Mizuno called their fears overwrought. Look, if youre not doing anything wrong youll have nothing to fear from the State. Its only the people exhibiting wrongful intent that were trying to interdict.
Mizuno defended the compilation of dossiers on persons of interest as precautionary in nature. We cant be certain from where future threats may arise. Having a file on potential troublemakers could prove invaluable. In fact, its possible that if people know we have the capacity to compile these dossiers that by itself may serve to deter them from getting crosswise with governing authorities.

Wow! The Third Reich coming to a state near you! Can we know acknowledge that the dimocRATS have zero respect for the Constitution???
In before the goofy goobers who don’t look at the source.
I should know better by now, but I almost believed this one. LOL
Good job, John.
***Its only the people exhibiting wrongful intent that were trying to interdict.***
And only a faceless bureaucrat can accurately know ‘intent’, right? Can anyone say: NDAA?
Problem is, we know d*mn well that the lib-O-crats have wet dreams about this each and every night.
Yeah? And, where is THAT right written, hmmmm?
The government has a right to know who is reading/viewing what, Mizuno insisted.
The public has a right to know what the government is up to and Hawaii won’t comply with their own open records act and they want to spy on us? The US is completely turned upside down.
Shouldn’t give these clowns any ideas. They would LOVE to do what is satired here. Given half a chance or a second FUBO term ... they WILL try
If you think you know just how stupid a human being can be, I invite you to sit in the gallery at the Hawaii State legislature. But do not tarry too long in the “Moronosphere” lest your own intelligence be sucked out through your ears.
Nevertheless, my comment about the intelligence of Hawaii politicians stands.
Impeach Mizuno for threatening to abrogqate the U.S. Constitution and its mandate to maintain a Republican form of government in all of the states of the Union.
Guess he’s never heard of a proxy server...
It’s close enough to be no longer satire. I think we’re no more than 18 months away from this.
Thomas Jefferson is spinning in his grave.
Oh... SHOOT! I forgot to look at the source. This is the first time I have been suckered in on a satire post but this one sounds like something a leftist politician would want.
You're gonna give people strokes from BP spikes with this one.
Most sites actually do log access, because it is turned on by default in Apache, and it is useful if you want to know if the users are getting errors.
Can’t have anyone talking about their favorite son, huh. Just an extension of Hussein’s report your neighbor to the WH.
