No expectation of privacy

So says the Obama administration.

the Obama administration has argued that warrantless tracking is permitted because Americans enjoy no “reasonable expectation of privacy” in their–or at least their cell phones’–whereabouts. U.S. Department of Justice lawyers say that “a customer’s Fourth Amendment rights are not violated when the phone company reveals to the government its own records” that show where a mobile device placed and received calls.

Read the article.  The Obama administration isn’t referring to court ordered tracking, but warrantless tracking.  And I’m sorry, but no government — Republican or Democratic run — has any right to invade my privacy.  The government does not have the right to know where I am at, where I travel, or why.
