    Wife looks online for information on pressure cookers; husband looks for information on backpacks. Armed Feds show up at their door.


    But the government isn't spying on innocent citizens.

    He does a lot of work for Mediaite.com. Your point?

    That's their fault for not being registered Democrats.
  5. The subject of the story writes for Boing Boing. No federal agencies were involved in conducting the raid.

    I'm sure the subject of the "raid" was a Tea Party fanatic, as it tends to attract freelance music writers.

    wonder how a local agency got ahold of their google information.
  8. An employee of a local company who reported the Google searches of a former employee. Hope you DVR'd The Blaze.

    Tipped off by the private sector, involved only local cops. No federal involvement whatsoever.

    I now expect the talking point to shift to "why aren't the feds detecting this?!?"
  10. The narrative from the Boing Boing writer is a bit off. I'm guessing when you shop for a pressure cooker online, you need to put "pressure cooker is the bomb" instead of "pressure cooker bomb."

    Yep. It was the husband's former employer. He was using his work computer to google those words.
