Big Brother

Liberal 9th Circuit Court approves of Big Brother

It is almost comical, if not so very sad, how the 9th United States Circuit Court of Appeals almost always gets their decisions wrong.  That court is, by far, the court with the most decisions overturned by the United States Supreme Court.  Their recent invasion of privacy decision was just their latest bad decision.
 
Adam Cohen in the August 25, 2010 edition of "Time" magazine reported that with the San Francisco-based appeals court's recent bad decision on privacy, "Government agents can sneak onto your property in the middle of the night, put a GPS device on the bottom of your car and keep track of everywhere you go.  This doesn't violate your Fourth Amendment rights, because you do not have any reasonable expectation of privacy in your own driveway — and no reasonable expectation that the government isn't tracking your movements."

So now the people in the states under this scary court's jurisdiction  --  California and 8 other Western states  --  are susceptible to having the government monitor them anytime it well pleases, without them having to get a search warrant.  If this isn't something that both liberals and conservatives can unite against, there hardly will be anything to unite the two ends of the political spectrum.
