I think it's pretty obvious why company traffic involving company systems
is monitored. After all, companies aren't democracies.

Finally, I should point out that all the people at both sites were told
repeatedly that Internet email was being monitored; this includes all
traffic picked up by my JobTalk analytic:

Sure, government can give debate reasons for requiring fingerprinting
for driver's licenses...

But it is still a violation of the minimization requirement of the Privacy
Act of 1974.

Biometric data on citizens is FAR BEYOND any reason government can give.

Notice how no citizens in any state ever got to vote on such an important
escalation of personal data collection by the government.

Indeed, it seems to be accomplished in the quietest way possible, giving
citizens the least amount of opportunity to choose their fate.

Odd, since tax-payer paid-for government services is what gives them the power.

But elected representatives will do, you say?

Did you hear any of them mention it during campaigning?

Did Alabama elected officials even mention it with their press
release of a new driver's license, despite that being the plan?

No.

What does that tell you?

We need a cabinet-level Privacy Commission,
with the power to intervene nationwide.

Power to protect us little people from fanatical personal data collection.

We are losing it piece by piece.

Who would have thought the United States would
collect fingerprints from all citizens?

Collect biometric information from everyone

Washington, D.C.
*   magazine for federal employees, basically admitted the existence of this
*   Center and its activities.
*
*   In his article, "Federal Agencies Link, Share Databases," John Monroe said:
*
*       Law enforcement agencies across the federal government have poured
*       money into information technology programs. According to the Government
*       Market Services Division, federal agencies will spend 5.5 billion
*       dollars on law enforcement technology between 1995 and 1999...
*
*       The common link between in these programs is to build an information
*       substructure: A WEB OF CONNECTED DATABASES AND HIGH SPEED NETWORKS
*       THAT WILL MAKE DATA INSTANTLY AVAILABLE TO FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL
*       LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS.
*
*       The federal government's goal is to BRING RANDOM PIECES OF DATA
*       TOGETHER TO GET A MORE COMPLETE PICTURE---WHAT SOME CALL INTELLIGENCE.

Wow. All federal agencies will be linked together in a vast intelligence
network. Hand

This has nothing to do with pit bulls.  Please keep it to yourselves.
