Jeff Sessions: Libraries Think They've Got "Some Religion Thing" with Privacy for Patrons

Jeff Sessions Speaking in the Senate Judiciary Committee on October 1 2009“There’s no particular legal justification, none that I know of, that librarians have more protections for holding records in their building than a bank. They got it in their heads, somehow, this is some sort of religion thing with them!”

Jeff Sessions, October 1, 2009, expressing his frustration with librarians and explaining in the Senate Judiciary Committee why he thinks the government should be able to seize Americans’ library records without a warrant or notice.

    Knowledge is power – so they have to see who’s tryin’ to get the power FROM THEM by readin’ up on issues. Oh, by all means, collect all this information, build more prisons, and use the renewed Patriot Act to incarcerate innocent civilians while our schools deteriorate, our jobs blow away and corporate America solidifies its stranglehold on “our” (former) government.
