So happy there is no FBI in Canada that can do this to us. Certainly the RCMP and CSIS would never collect private information like that on us maple syrup slugging, beaver-tail chomping Canucks . (Would they?)

I think as long as you are a law abiding person then there is nothing to worry about. It is used to find criminals,not honest people. I say great, criminals deserve to get caught and punished.

The FBI likes to hide behind it's 1980's good-cop image, but it has been highly politicized and has been for years. And now FBI Director (and Head Weasel) Comey has granted immunity to nearly everybody involved in Hillary Clinton's secret email server, and refused to recommend prosecution even for offenses that may rise to the level of treason.

It's far more important to the FBI that the FBI control CITIZENS than that the FBI control CRIMINALS. Because the best way in the world to commit the perfect crime is to be in charge of the investigation.

Re: James' post. What happens when a regime (government) decides that what you consider innocent is bad for the government? The political party you belong to, or religious affiliation, or your race? These very things have happened in my lifetime. Don't be naive thinking that any government is your friend. "Absolute power corrupts absolutly."

Apparently James missed the part about how these activities affect honest upright citizens and is misused against them.

Bob, the GAO is the Government Accountability Office, not the accounting office. That's an important distinction in this case.

James, you don't know what you're talking about. That's polite; I'd like to use stronger language. Nothing obscene, just stronger.

The next thing you'll approve of is the police breaking into your house at midnight just to check on you. If you're not doing anything wrong, it's OK, right?

Do you have any knowledge of history? Have you ever read (any part of) the Constitution, and examined why it was written? Do you even care?

The govt has been progressively increasingly working AGAINST us for some time, but Obama put that on steroids. There's a reason he is doing this, and built the DHS wayyyyyyyyy beyond what Bush or the original architects intended.

Obama has turned the IRS, VA, DOJ, FBI against us, yet allows obvious criminals to walk free.

When Congress passes laws that PROTECT them, as they are and have been doing and on steroids since Obammie arrived, but put US under scrutiny, something is very wrong.

For proof, read up on the NDAA regs that Obama enhanced!

Trump isn't perfect, but he's by far our best shot at saving America.

We are supposedly the land of the free and home of the brave. I think our own government has turned against the people they are suppose to protect. And why is (almost)everyone making sure Clinton wins. She has broken the law so many times and the media and most politicians are forcing us to accept her. This country has me so confused? I can't figure out how we got to this point. How our only choices are so bad?

Bob....I thought you previewed all comments. Vulcan seems to be way out of bounds for this forum.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I do not preview comments, but I do occasionally remove or edit things that don't contribute to the discussion in a positive way. Let's keep it on point, and polite!

Vulcan! Keep your politics to yourself. I'll let it go at that.

@Henry You're wrong! Maybe you sir need to open your eyes and remove your blinders and see what is going on! Instead of just taking everything at face value.

The Political Comments on this tech site have become more and more bizarre.

Since this is the season, I don't mind a political reference (or even a preference), but no name calling or invective here, please. I'll edit or remove anything that crosses that line.

A couple of things that shouldn't be commented about here are religion and politics. I'm with Henry, political posts should be denied.

>>>> The Privacy Act ... prohibits the government from creating databases about the political activities of its citizens. But the FBI’s proposal would allow it to do exactly that, and citizens could not take the Bureau to court.

It appears that you wish you could sue one agency of the USA government (the FBI) in another agency of that government (a court of law).

Reminder:

There is NO SEPARATION between the Executive and the Judicial branches of the USA government.

The president, who nominates the head of the FBI, also nominates the Justices of the Supreme Court. (See Section 2 of the Constitution.)

Those extraordinary powers of the president definitely make the USA an “exemplary democracy”!

James,

Tell that to Richard Jewell. He was the Atlanta Olympic Games guard accused by the FBI even though he was totally innocent. In fact he was driven from job to job after the bombing (even after the actual perpetrator was caught)and hounded to death. There are many more such "incidents." So much for being safe just because you're law abiding.
