It’ll be on the block soon. They are already tracking people via credit cards and atm cards. Now is the in-your-face takeover in front of your very eyes.
Of course the information belongs to you, the consumer, only accessible if the government gets permission first. No, it’s just not an issue that you have no use for the information yourself, the important thing is that you have it. Just in case. Because we’re looking out for you, Mr. Joe and Mrs. Suzy American.
Although the text of legislation states that such data would remain the property of the owner of the vehicle, the government would have the power to access it in a number of circumstances, including by court order, if the owner consents to make it available, and pursuant to an investigation or inspection conducted by the Secretary of Transportation. – InfoWars.com
Notice “including” but not limited to court order. So in other sorts of “heightened circumstances” other methods are available. Why have our elected reps and senators decided that this is what America really wants? Could it REALLY be that a large percentage of people like the idea of a black box that records everything they do in their car? Seriously? Of course a great many folks like OnStar as well, so I guess there’s not much intelligence floating around free for the asking.
And in true “I know you are but what am I?” fashion we’ve hinted darkly at… things.
At the U.N. in New York, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said the Security Council stood ready to take action should there be “further acts, either missile launches or further nuclear test.”
“One would hope, against past precedent, that the leadership in North Korea will see the wisdom of not pursuing further provocations,” she added.
Yeah, and if they… uh… provoke us further we’ll DOUBLE-WITHHOLD food. No, seriously. If you aren’t going to do anything more than sanctions or withholding of food that China will provide if no one else will, then what the hell is the point in even talking about anything? They do whatever the hell they want anyway.
Stop giving them food. Stop giving them oil. Stop talking to the little dictators and feeding their egos.
Shit, I know this much from dealing with a cat that yowls to be fed whenever he wants.
Go read the article. The points I wanted to make are:
… Villa Hamster, a hotel that allows guests to give up the daily stresses of being human and try out life as a hamster.
The Villa … has been modernized for the 21st century human-hamster hybrid, with cages for rooms, hay stacks instead of beds and human-sized running wheels….
The guests have the option of wearing little hamster hoodies as well.
… instead of the normal French cuisine items… the guests eat organic hamster grains served in little containers and sip water on all fours.
The idea of spending a week in France imitating a hamster may sound bizarre, but Falquerho says there are a lot of people who are fulfilling a lifelong dream.
“The hamster in the world of children is that little cuddly animal,” he told Reuters. “Often, the adults who come here have wanted or did have hamsters when they were small.”
Hey, yeah, ok… do they realize that real-life hamsters are cannibals? No, really.
If your room-mate at this hotel dies in the middle of the night peacefully or in a fit of passion – it is your duty to eat them. Like a good hamster would.
That means… one tiny atom in this duck’s webbed foot could be one little tiny universe…
(Please God, tell me someone recognizes the source of the bastardized quote and why it is funny on a couple of levels… think of it as a fun game)
Ooh. Found a good quote:
There must be a ‘jackass award’ on just about every GSA leader’s desk since the Vegas junket is clearly just the tip of the iceberg. – Rep. John Mica (R-Fla.), who chairs the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, which has jurisdiction over the GSA
Well, anyone who has jurisdiction or was in any way related to the agency was either blind, asleep, incompetent, or complicit – just the same as anyone in the GSA. Sorry, word of stuff like that gets around.
Uncle Ted, while I think you’re great, your choice of free speech is less than measured. An American ought to be able to say what he thinks but the reality is you’re sticking your hand into a hornet’s nest when all you needed to do was mention that political insect killer was what is called for.
“It’s good people who bent over and let the enemy in. If the coyote’s in your living room pissing on your couch, it’s not the coyote’s fault. It’s your fault for not shooting him.” Nugent had said in his address that “if Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” – Ted Nugent, exercising his God-given right to free political speech even if it sounds like more than that (Source: WND.com)
