erik - I guess Bushie and his patriot act which began the worst intrusiveness doesn't count, right? It's BOTH parties and until you sheep wake up, it's going to get worse.

wwhic**** - "If you're doing what is required for good reason, you have nothing to hide." Really? I don't believe this country was founded on that ideal - if you have nothing to hide what are you worried about? So, guilty until proven innocent?

Let's add to the DEA issues, the fact that the Obama Administration thinks they can use drones over your house and peer inside. They think they can kill you with that drone, despite their weak denials.

Lastly, the Justice Department thinks it can snoop your e-mail and financial records as it sees fit.

PS: All the above started under President Obama.

there is nothing wrong with the dog warden coming to your door. wtf??? if you give two craps about the dog you own, you WOULD have a tag on it and you wouldnt MIND the warden knocking on your door. he cant come in without a warrant, nor should he. hes not a cop, however, he has ever right to ask to see Fidos tag.. the one that came here was very pleasant and easy going. i dont put the tags on my dogs because it stains her white fur, and his makes a lot of jingle noise, but they hang right by the front door for warden to see quickly. he was here and gone within two minutes. for the dogs well being you SHOULD have a license for fido. if he gets lost, they can locate YOU by the tag and county ID on the tag. doh good idea!!

As a Federal Government I agree. If this article is even remotely about people going to door to door to make sure dogs have tags, I disagree. If you're doing what is required for good reason, you have nothing to hide.

"Cochran is against officials entering private residences without a search warrant for any reason.

"Nobody has the right to come knock on my door and demand to enter my home unless I am causing a problem for the public," Cochran said.

"If you want to enter my house, you better have a search warrant," he added."


Try telling that to the DEA...when your place is one (of many), where they've gotten the wrong address...and, come "No Knockin'".

Started getting really bad with the Patriot Act and has continued on with NDAA and DHS. Someday enough people will wise up.
