    Told ya

    You know what some folks here say.
    Walking down the street is a privilege not a right.

    Yeah. Privilege. Thats a word you use on your kid. Scary thing when you use it on citizens.

    The last stage in the game went over fairly easily, only a few bad mentions in the media and some you tube videos. But for the most part the people slept. I got a feeling the next stage will be even more intrusive and Orwellian, will they wake up?

    Shortly after deployment, it won't be long after that we'll start seeing them pop up on places like UStream. Someone getting caught with a gun in their waistband is just what I need to see while cam surfing - NOT !!

    Cheers & 73 :)

    Please cite one single post where anyone has said that walking down the street is a privilege, not a right. Just one.

    That's the attitude some people have.
    It all comes from the Government is good crowd.

    You know the type; they just turn their back and let government do what it will...

    Tell me something;
    Are you going to stand by and watch while your granddaughter gets groped at the entrance to the mall or gets groped while the two are walking down the sidewalk on the way to the 7/11 for a coke?

    How is that going to make you feel when it happens later this year?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Okay I will lay off the scarcism a little....
    I really do want to know;
    Is this the country you want your grandchildren to hairnet???

    I see crap like this and my maternal instinct kicks into overdrive.
    What about you?
    As a man don't you feel your clan is threatened?
    Doesn't stir something deep within you that makes you want to fight it?

    Being well informed with unbiased news is our best tool in keeping these thugs in line. Thats why your seeing an assault on the internet. The real intent is to shut down the likes of Drudge and pump you full of Faux snooze. Theres been a chokehold on the access to real information and free speech for so many years, our owners feel this internet thing is getting out of hand.

    If this country goes down we have nothing to blame but our own laziness.

    Here, let me fix that so it's more accurate:

    "If this country goes down, blame someone else for our own laziness."

    I read quotes that stated "DOD and Police reserching new technology". "Only used in resonably suspicious circumstances, used at specific events, used in shooting prone locations".

    No place in the article did it state that they paln on acutally purchasing or using this technolgy. No place did I read that it was to be used on the on the city streets to randomly scan citizens, by the Police spokesman who was interviewd.

    I did read where the news paper itself used the bait and hook method of sucking in the readers by claiming it would be used to violate the citizens walking on the street.

    I did read several of the replies by some of the same people who repeatedly have claimed that you have no expectation of a right to privacy in public or on a public street when it comes to video taping. Those same people are now claiming that this would be a violation of privacy if used in public or on a public street. You can't have it both ways people!

    This is nothing more that infared technology just like they use on the choppers to track and search for criminals. This not an x-ray body scanner that is used in the airports. This technology has been dragged though the courts many times and ruled to not only be effective but legal.

    Do a little reserch on the subject as the artical contains no real facts, and is only intended to invoke a predictable rersponse.

    Oh no the sky is falling, again!!!

    Privilege translates as private law. I'll leave you to consider whether that applies in this case.

    Seriously? If anything, information has become much more readily available, so where's the chokehold?

    I would blame someone else if that was my responsibility to do so, but it's clearly someone else's responsibility because I am not accountable for anything. I'm not worried about it too much because the government takes care of everything for us. We don't have to do anything important except watch American Idol on TV.

    That is only one of several definitions.

    Interesting comment coming from someone who lives in a monarchy.

    I agree. There was a somewhat famous court case where the police were using a passive optical IR scanner to search out a suspects house ( that they had a search warrent for) , from 'afar'. They happened to also scan a nearby house and apparently the IR signature of marijuana grow lights in a attic gained their attention and they then searched the home and made an arrest. The court held that the evidence used to trigger their search was NOT legal and through the case out. They ruled it an unreasonable search of the owners home, even though they didn't need to enter the home for the initial 'justification' for the further search and finding 'grow farm' in the attic.

    So I guess you have to count me among the side that doesn't think the executive branch of the government is 'out of control' and trying to take our rights away whenever possible. I still think we are a country ruled by laws and feel the judicial branch is doing it's job as the framers intended. One my not agree with every decision made by the courts, but I would challenge anyone to come up with a better method to protect our rights, tell me the specific changes you have in mind.

    I was thinking we could equip the Google van with the technology and then it would be perfectly ok to invade everybodys privacy and scan your house into a database as they drive by.
