MrFewkes - pleaaaasseeeeee yourself. You continually post the most depressing "can't do" points of view. We are not all doomed, unless we choose to believe that. And then it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Just snap out of it.
The fact is that Google has often refused to hand over "fishing expedition" data to the feds when other companies, like the big ISPs, Yahoo, Microsoft etc just bow down and kiss bottom.
