    Hey, manatee's are cool ( http://www.homesafe.com/manatee/manatee-facts.html )...... Oh, you said Monitee's.

And the cameras that monitor public places are legal right now, but there is much controversy...I think those are good because it will lower crime rate, but monitoring internet access will not help one bit.
    Monitoring by the Gov or some Entity? Is that what you mean. Like it was discussed in another thread. Monitoring of your own children is a whole different ball game.

    I think speed limits are more comparible to filters than monitoring, I think monitoring network usage is a little too much, but I might see how filtering may be justified.

    However, now they have those cameras that take your picture if you run red lights. So there is monitoring too.

    I really do not like it, but as long as you are notified of it ahead of time, then at least you are able to decide if you want to do anything incriminating....speaking of such...where's BW lately?

    Right, we (as a nation, even if not you in perticular) elected these people that makes these laws. So they are using our tax dollars because we get them the authority to do so.

    So? Your tax dollars pay for the roads too, but you can't use them without certain restrictions. Deal with it. ANY government program will have government restrictions. It SHOULD have some. Not everyone will agree with all those restrictions, but they are necessary so that the plurality of people can enjoy the resource.

    Even if i live in Canada thats still scary
    As should be expected, I am gonna take the opposite viewpoint here. Libraries are Government run facilities. They have a right to monitor/moderate anything they want to. If a person is using a Government (albeit local government) owned resource they should have no expectation of privacy. If you don't like what the Gov. has to offer to you FOR FREE then don't use it.
