Government trying to spy on your Google searches

The article "Google Rebuffs Feds on Search Requests" on Yahoo talks about how the government is trying to get Google to give them data on what people are searching for. As the article mentions, this is a privacy concern and I'm glad that Google is making this stand. The article also says that many other search engines have complied to the government on this request, such as Yahoo. Microsoft didn't even acknowledge the "demand" for this information, but you can guess that they have.

What's next, chips in everyone's computer telling the government what each and every person are typing, viewing, etc. Land of the free, right. I wonder what people who actually voted for Bush are saying now. Oops, we made a mistake. No doubt.
