It's already here in your OBD2 engine managment system Big Brother is so thoughtfull they included it in every new car

Coupled with your Safeway club card or Costco card they can tell what and how much you eat and drink, and your car can tell how fast you drive and how hard you brake. But like you said, no worry's they have your best intrest at heart

You have to love Ilana Mercer too. She makes a cogent arguement against Virginia's postulations here http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=38064 . VWW

They can put whatever sensors, GPS, etc on my bike. They all can and will be hacked. I'll make sure my GPS/tracking/big-brother black box never transmits or records anything incriminating.

Yea; but what if they read your bike memory as you ride by, or at your next inspection, or at a random " safety check" . You go to jail and pay a mega fine. You're right though, they don't care if you die.

Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom. Just remember when you go to vote that both the Republican, and the Democrat parties were complicit in the erosion of your liberty so far. VWW

It won't help Mashuri. Soon after such technology is implemented there will be random road blocks to catch those evil black box tamperers. All in the name of "public saftey" of course. VWW

With IFF technology the govt could simply monitor your speed and mail you a speeding ticket whenever you exceed the speed limit. It could be tied to the local traffic grid and you could be checked to make sure you aren't running any red lights. A ticket could be mailed to you for that too.



Gotta love that high tech.

>we, Americans, take our liberty more

>seriously



Tsk tsk tsk. I just read that Californians are starting to ban smoking on the beaches. How absurd. Even worse: I was in Miami AND YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DRINK BEER ON THE BEACH. As drinking beer on the beaches is one of the most basic human rights in the civilized countries, I am starting to wonder.



Looks to me people are taking their liberty very seriously to limit other people's liberty.

Great, just Great! "1984". Just how long can we really get along without the "Thought Police"? Wouldn't the world be better if anytime anyone broke any rule they were immediately "found out" and punished?
