How Far Will Government Intrude Into Our Lives?

The federal government under the watchful eye of Barack O’Bama (nobody is more Irish you know) is making sure that no one spreads lies about the Dear Leader. Now I don’t really care if the O’Bama regime is out there monitoring the Internet but I also know that the lies end up being anything they do not like about O’Bama. The one thing I want to know; is the person hired to work in the White House Communications Department to specifically build Obama’s online presence and squash negative stories paid for with taxpayer dollars? If Jesse Lee, the Director of Progressive Media and Online Response is being paid for with taxpayer dollars he better not be doing anything that deals with reelecting O’Bama, which is what this position is described as. Keep an eye folks, if your money is being spent on campaign items it is a violation of the law.

So with O’Bama’s spies watching to make sure you do not talk badly about Dear Leader, there is another intrusion into states rights and our lives by the federal government. The federal government wants to pass a law to force motorcycle riders to wear helmets. Before some loon liberal jumps in here let me make it clear. I think that wearing a helmet, just like wearing a seatbelt, is a smart thing to do but I also feel it is up to states to decide and if states do not take a decision then it is up to the individual. It is as simple as that. The federal government does not belong intruding into our lives this way. Like I said, I think it is smart to wear safety equipment but I feel it should be a state issue or an individual issue. The only thing I think regarding this is if people decide not to wear a helmet or a seatbelt and those people get injured in an accident then they should have to pay the costs that insurance does not and if they die their families cannot sue. Other than that, be free.

As if this is not bad enough, the federal government wants to install black boxes on all new cars.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is expected to issue new regulations next month that will require a black box style data recorder be fitted in all new cars. DVICE

The devices will record data about speed, seatbelt use, and brake application prior to accidents. The details being worked out now are who can access the data and when. This is a bad idea and it is Big Sis prying into our lives. There is no reason for them to know my speed, whether I used my seatbelt (see above) or how my brake was applied before I ran into something.

I understand that they can use the information to figure out what happened and who was to blame but that is not a good reason to allow the intrusion into our lives. If they had everyone’s DNA it would be easier to identify remains but that does not mean we should all provide a sample. Like DNA collection, the black boxes and the information they contain can (and will) be abused. The military collects DNA and when that program started it was ONLY for identification of remains as the result of conflict or other service connected deaths. Now the information is part of the national database.

How long will it be before the government decides to track our movements or issue speeding tickets based on information in the black boxes?

The federal government does not belong involved in our lives. How long will it be before the people push back?

Sadly, many will be silent as their rights are taken away and government intrudes into their lives.

And that kind of apathy is what allowed a group of people to be marched into gas chambers.

Cave Canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

    The number of people who are fine with this as astounding. The number that are assisting with it is criminal.

    The federal government is so far beyond Constitutional bounds that liberty and freedom cannot exist in this country at all today.

    And yes, the number of people who love and support this crap really is astounding.

    I don’t know if I support or oppose the use of EDRs but I do know the majority of new cars in the US already have EDRs and have had them for 5 or 6 years. NHTSA has been trying to standardize the usage and data recorded for a long time now due to their growth in usage and the inconsistency at which they are dealt with at a state level. Chances are good you already own a car with an EDR but perhaps not. My car is probably a bit too old for one.

      They gov wants more data collected and they want a lot of people to have access. Right now a lot of cars have them but you at least can choose to buy one that does not.

    Boy o boy- Dear Leader is now the correct term for Barrie O’vomit and his minions of governmental control.
    If Jesse Lee or anyone else is monitoring this, I say come on- let’s see what you got- I think Bari is a POS as a person, and a real scumbag as the Rezident. If he was beaten like a harp seal for his bad decisions it would only APPROACH being a just punishment.

      You realize that this has nothing to do with Obama other than that Obama is president now that the changes kick in? Did you call President Bush “Dead Leader” for this when NHTSA started looking into these changes under his administration? Or is just OKIYAR?
