    This is what happens when you have no written Bill of Rights and no concept of God-given liberties. We should keep reminding ourselves of that.

    I was listening to a broadcast from the U.K. just last night. It's rapidly turning into a "benign" police state. The more they apply the "cure" (socialism), the more the disease (tyranny, chaos) grows.

    Cameras will be used to scan license plates and enter car movements
    into a data base. Will this become like Canada's gun registration data
    base or Maryland's "Ballistic Fingerprint" data base: a big pile of
    uselessness and a waste of law enforcement resources?

    I TOLD Mr. Munson that not having a written constitution was a bad idea.


    Carl N. Brown,
    It sounds workable. They already have systems like that to catch people that speed or run red lights. Just throw the data points in a database. It's all data mining from there...

    I predict a rash of vandalism on these tracking devices, much like the speed cameras. Can't say I blame em.

    Wishful thinking. They're already too deeply ingrained into the "it doesn't matter if you're not doing anything wrong" fallacy.

    There are already proposals to do similar things here in the US, by requiring all newly made vehicles to have a GPS tracker installed.

    It's ok, there's nothing to worry about. And if you don't like it, the nice men in room 101 will be happy to have a chat with you.

    I know someone who lives in one of the post-industrial cities. There's entire gangs of people who basically get drunk, go out and break things because they have no work, but they have welfare without restriction as to what they can use it for, so they're bored and dangerous.

    And the residents can't stop them from breaking things because they're unarmed. Someone recently set fire to their motorcycle for no reason.

    Great place, huh?

    Why I like the custom car culture. It still costs less to have a decent Acura, Lexus or such, bought used, totally overhauled and upgraded, basically leaving you with a new car, than it does to buy a new one.

    Watch that only become more widespread if that goes through. They want to kill new-car sales? Go ahead.

    Sounds like were I used to live, had a 80% Unemployment Rate with a Pop of almost 200,000, roughly 90% of which were Alcoholics or Drug Addicts or both.

    & Crime in the area was totally out of control mostly due to some moron's decision to strip the local PD down to a 3 Officer Skeleton Crew.:banghead:
