    still far too much. It's the 21st century, we don't need to be wasting our time in the middle east. That's for another topic though.

    Absolutely...... nothing in the Middle East that could possibly be considered of National Security or interest.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Re: Court allows agents to secretly put GPS trackers on cars

    As noted before the government does not need a warrant to follow you in "person"

    The main issue would be

    Is placing a tracking device on your car, while out of sight, but not in your car a violation of your property rights.

    If it is a violation of your property rights then it is clearly unconstitutional, if it is not violating your property rights then it is in my opinion allowed

    Re: Court allows agents to secretly put GPS trackers on cars

    Tracking someone by GPS is not the same thing as following them around in person. GPS tracking requires tampering with private property. In addition, abuse of tailing is limited by police manpower, whereas the cheap GPS has no such limitation. Technology can fundamentally change privacy, and our laws must change with it. I could grab a laser microphone and record the judge having sex and then broadcast it all over the internet. Somehow I doubt my "it is perfectly legal to stand outside and listen" argument would work when the shoe is on the other foot.

    actually your right, I mean nothing that warrants a full scale war. We could have easily prevented terrorism (and have) with new safety regulations and intensified security. Instead we have now gone to war with the wrong country and have lost thousands of men. The only good thing to come of it is Al Qaeda has been weekend but we still have yet to capture Bin Laden. Keep tricking yourself into thinking that Iraq and Al Qaeda were a major threat to our freedom.

    It certainly is a violation.

    You can't attach something to a person's home without consent or a warrant.
    That would be trespassing and/or vandalism depending on how it is applied.

    You can't attach something to a person without consent or a warrant, that's assault.

    A car in your drive way, it's still your car and your drive way.
    If the police have a compelling need to attach a GPS unit to it, they should and must get a warrant.
    Otherwise, they are breaking the law themselves.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    That's what I love about the bicycle... I can go higher than the speed limit and don't have to worry about it...
