    Vice President Joe Biden will be answering questions on yahoo answers (answers.yahoo.com) shortly. I've already posted a question about mandatory data retention so if everyone could thumbs up that question (I guess you'd have to do a search for it) or post their own question about data retention get everyone you know to give it thumbs up, then hopefully the vice president will have to talk about it.

    You can already get fired for the content on your facebook account, despite that being your personal life; where do we draw the line between public and private use of content? And I think we can all agree that the U.S. government should finish what they already can't chew before they bite off more.

    So, everyone ready for the police state?
    I find it funny that the country cannot get a effective universal health care plan due to Washington having a lack of foresight , but this "internet Gestapo" crap gets started with no effort what so ever..
