>U.S. Hopes to Check Computers Globally

here is an editorial at the NY Times

November 14, 2002
You Are a Suspect
WASHINGTON  If the Homeland Security Act is not amended before passage,
here is what will happen to you:
Every purchase you make with a credit card, every magazine subscription you
buy and medical prescription you fill, every Web site you visit and e-mail
you send or receive, every academic grade you receive, every bank deposit
you make, every trip you book and every event you attend  all these
transactions and communications will go into what the Defense Department
describes as "a virtual, centralized grand database."
