Hawaii may keep track of all Web sites visited

Hawaii's legislature is weighing an unprecedented proposal to curb the privacy of Aloha State residents: requiring Internet providers to keep track of every Web site their customers visit.

Its House of Representatives has scheduled a hearing this morning on a new bill (PDF) requiring the creation of virtual dossiers on state residents. The measure, H.B. 2288, says "Internet destination history information" and "subscriber's information" such as name and address must be saved for two years.

H.B. 2288, which was introduced Friday, says the dossiers must include a list of Internet Protocol addresses and domain names visited. Democratic Rep. John Mizuno of Oahu is the lead sponsor; Mizuno also introduced H.B. 2287, a computer crime bill, at the same time last week.

What in the world would they do with all that data?

They are going to make you think about what websites you visit.

If they’re going to log websites visited, surely they will follow with tracking who you call, who you vist, where you pray, what you buy, etc.

Remember the howl that went up when the idea of requiring libraries to keep tabs on who borrowed what book? I see little difference here. Of course you could surf the proscribed sites from the library's computers. :)

They already keep track of how much you make, where you work, where you live, how you get from where you work to where you live, and where you spend your money. It's called income tax.

OMG! Our State's Citizens are overwhelming our servers and they're learning what the laws are. We have to do something to stop them and quick.
I know, we'll try to intimidate them into not looking into anything. You guys pass a law that will track them when they come to our websites. And we'll publicly let them know in loud and clear terms that we're tracking them. That way they'll stay away and stay the ignorant herd beasts they are.

The state lawmakers need to be ran out of state on a rail. Let them float on rail too China where they will find a government more too their liking. This time honored practice needs a rebirth in these times of tyranny.

I was stationed in HI with the Navy 1970-1972. Between 1972 and 1991 I revisited it many times with the Navy. I have seen it become a cesspit of Marxist social engineering, resulting in an utterly disassociated population.

Group One. There is a small, ultra-rich population. A friend’s niece lives with her boyfriend. The boyfriend is the son of one of the richest computer billionaires on the planet who has basically purchased several hundred acres of one of the Hawaiian Islands for his son. You can probably name several other mega-rich people who have estates on the islands that dirty commoners like us can never see or visit.

Group Two is larger. These are not as wealthy as Group One but never have to work for a living while enjoying luxurious estates. They run part of the the Islands’ politics. They cluster with Group Three, a gaggle of people insane with rage at the United States and all it means. Supported by both Groups One and Two, and allied with homicidal Marxists, they control the Islands’ Politics. Think Michael Bloomberg during a permanent psychotic break. Their hatred of whites is bottomless. They live to hurt the United States and the Western World the way Jeffrey Dahmer lived for dinner. They have inflicted rules upon the population that are vindictive and punishing. They have instituted a One Drop Rule for those who claim to be at least 1% Hawaiian by descent. Every few years they push the envelope further with new rules punishing whites for no sane reason.

Finally, we have Group Four, the general civilian population. The military has a large presence in the Islands and are largely immune from the civil insanity that reins there. As the old saying goes, there are people that make things happen; people who watch things happen; and the rest of us who wonder what the hell happened. Group Four is in this last camp. They try to live their lives without being destroyed by the other Groups. That they have to pass dozens of drugged-out, violent bums on the sidewalk just to walk to the coffee shop no longer even makes an impression.

That HI would even consider a law that violates the First Amendment shows how far gone it is and why Obama is so fond of going there. I would not be surprised if HI files to secede from the union in the near future, believing it can be its own country. Good riddance.

You could set your homepage to Whitehouse.com. This isnt a gubmint site btw. Then turn on TOR to go where you really want.

What in the world would they do with all that data? Who’s going to have the miserable job of going through that data and how many people would they have to hire to sift through all of it?
