Small quibble: The Federal Reserve isn't as private as you imply. It's privately owned, but the majority of actual control over its operation traces back to the office of the President. In short, it's a "special purpose vehicle" of the federal government, which is a "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" arrangement:Yet the very ones implementing these tactics are the very same ones committing the worst atrocities of all. Yet my speeding is something the planet as a whole should fear!
Wars for profit (murder, pillage, rape, slaughter, massacre,etc)
False flag attacks on the civilian population
The Internally (only what they wish to release) audited federal reserve (not federal, privately owned).
The stripping of the constitution, freedom of speech, etc
NDAA, SOPA, PIPA, CIPA, patriot act, etc
" The hardest thing in the world to understand is the Income Tax." Albert Einstein (lol, yeah, this guy said it!)
Just to name a few off the top of my head. Open your ears and eyes....
There's a war going on, and it's against you! It's just paced slowly so the dumb people fall back on their right to forgetfulness.
There's a somewhat similar reporting system in cars anyways, since I think 2001-2002 all fuel injected cars monitor the cars speed for the last 30 seconds I think in the event of a crash with the airbag deployed. You would be amazed at the excessive bitching speedsters do when the data shows they were speeding beforehand, and even faced with the data go "I WASN'T SPEEDING!" bullshitMore then 95% of car accidents on the road is the result of speeding, personally all I see having black boxes in cars is it keeps retards from lying about what caused their accident
In which case, yes, put black boxes in cars, make people accountable for driving like idiots.
Besides potato chips and fries I found nothing. My car is a 2002.[H]exx;1038630211 said:**Warning** I read the first few posts and jumped to reply **Warning**
This has probably already been said, if not, great. Most new cars already have black boxes in their cars. I think it was in '96 that they started putting them in. Look under your passenger side seat...it's most likely there.
Stop freaking out Internet!

It's a big deal because a mandatory black box in a car can be used for a LOT MORE than what you want it to be used for, and once it's mandatory by law, the capabilities that are added to it, and what they will be used for, will be totally out of your control or even the control of legislators.Why are people flipping out about this?
Again, corporations already do far worse. If you want to get up in arms about abuse that's fine. But it's private industry you should be worried about.It's a big deal because a mandatory black box in a car can be used for a LOT MORE than what you want it to be used for, and once it's mandatory by law, the capabilities that are added to it, and what they will be used for, will be totally out of your control or even the control of legislators.
No, private industry bought and corrupted government after making it far to weak by fear mongering people (thanks to that jackas Ronald the idiot) and it's all gone to shit since.Corporations and government are in bed with each other. It's MANDATES that you should be most worried about.
Which is only corrupted when corporations buy the government out. We have options to fix this, but they offend conservatives so much (because they want to buy it to crush labor and get their bigot on) we can't.They can only do so with the blessing of government. Government IS a monopoly on the legal use of force. They can selectively prosecute others who use force or violence of course, but the entire point of government - for good or ill - is to serve as a monopolistic source of and enforcement tool for "the law."
You seem to be taking a partisan view of this, as if we'd be just fine if only those "conservatives" would get out of the way and let government have (or exercise) even more regulatory power. Corruption is the nature of centralized power though: As long as so much power rests in a single institution, it's an irresistible target for takeover.Which is only corrupted when corporations buy the government out. We have options to fix this, but they offend conservatives so much (because they want to buy it to crush labor and get their bigot on) we can't.
Quoting this good post because everyone needs read it again.Here's exactly what I did over the last 20 minutes:
"Um, okay, I should probably read the actual bill proposal."
*Reads bill proposal*
*Reads article, again*
"I have no f%$#ing clue where they got that conclusion from."
The author misread the bill proposal, took it to an illogical extreme (and completely disregarded parts of the bill that effectively defang his argument, like the part that says, "Unless asked for by a court justice in a legal proceeding, the data collected by the recording device belongs to the owner of the vehicle") and then spent the second half of the article on a rambling conspiracy jaunt in the same vein (even the part about revoking passports makes sense in the proper context - if I owed someone $50k, I'd sure as hell try leaving the country... but I can't if I don't have a passport).
But, hey, InfoWars is the property of Alex Jones, self-described libertarian paleoconservative, so effectively anything that doesn't protect property rights, encourage decentralization, or keep our country firmly rooted in the late 1700's (despite the fact paleoconservatism espouses exactly the opposite idealism of our country's foundation, and is in fact a form of neo-liberalism) is essentially 'big government'.
Or, in short: Way to over-react, folks.
It's actually quite close. Essentially, the feds in question continued to collect GPS data from a drug dealer after the 30 day warrant expired (neglecting to renew it because, as they testified, they thought they could get away with it). It was during this off-warrant period that they collected some condemning evidence that was admitted in the lower courts. The SCOTUS said that the collection of location data required a warrant.Judges are not incorruptible.
And I didn't hear much about the ending to the warrantless searches (or i forgot it), but since you brought it up, in that context, I'm guessing it ended badly for the people who did it. Still, this seems to be a different case, while those are plainly unlawful, this bill seems like they can be "interpreted" in a different way.
That's what police officers say. Truth is most Americans live 5 or miles away from where they work. We have crap for public transportation unless you live in a BIG city, even then the fear of confrontation (shady characters) will get you is quite high. Only because of the government did they make driving a privilege than a right. Why? so they could control you.driving is a privilege, not a right, in the end it wont be a matter of privacy, just a requirement for your ability to drive.
like submitting to a breathalyzer, you can refuse, but lose your license for a period of time, even if you are stone cold sober.
Confirming that there is currently a bill under consideration to revise the constitution to remove the freedom of speech part.The stripping of the constitution, freedom of speech, etc.
Yes, I think you should organize the masses so Americans everywhere can drive like shit. This is something for which one should fight.~Eh, I guess this is another reason for my next car to be a classic. Always wanted some Detroit Muscle.
Just one more reason to organize the masses.
