  All your data are belong to us
Cruising thru Tammy Bruce's site and found this disturbing little gem; Pretty much as of now, every single electronic transaction you have run is available to anyone with a checkbook.
I *still* know who you called last month - The Red Tape Chronicles - MSNBC.com: "It's actually obscene what you can find out about people on the Internet.

Take cell phone records -- literally. Your cell phone bills are there for the taking, for about $100 a month. Dozens of Web sites offer this service –- one month, or one year. Every call, every phone number. However scary that sounds, it won’t really hit you until you see it for yourself -- so click here for an example of what's out there. Then hit 'back' in your browser, and let me explain.

Who your friends are. How to contact them. Even where you were. All those crumbs are on sale. Right now. Online. To anyone.
At about the same time, Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., introduced legislation designed to crack down on the sale of cell phone records by pretext callers. More recently -- just last week -- Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., sent a letter to both the FTC and the FCC demanding action."

Now the ever camera obsesseded Chucky Schumer did the standard Donk dance and made a bunch of well intentioned noises about a problem then promptly turned around and violated the very principles he was pretending to care about.
