    shocked2 The Government Can Use GPS to Track Your Moves

    This just is NOT America anymore!!!!

    Government agents can sneak onto your property in the middle of the night, put a GPS device on the bottom of your car and keep track of everywhere you go. This doesn't violate your Fourth Amendment rights, because you do not have any reasonable expectation of privacy in your own driveway — and no reasonable expectation that the government isn't tracking your movements.
    That is the bizarre — and scary — rule that now applies in California and eight other Western states. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which covers this vast jurisdiction, recently decided the government can monitor you in this way virtually anytime it wants — with no need for a search warrant. (See a TIME photoessay on Cannabis Culture.)
    It is a dangerous decision — one that, as the dissenting judges warned, could turn America into the sort of totalitarian state imagined by George Orwell. It is particularly offensive because the judges added insult to injury with some shocking class bias: the little personal privacy that still exists, the court suggested, should belong mainly to the rich.

    ALL my moves? Even my fancy, crowd pleasing moves?


    I'm going to have to come up with some new ones.

    I believe if carry a cell phone on your person, you can be tracked as well.

    I read somewhere that the black boxes on vehicles will have the ability to broadcast GPS data at some point. I can't wait for the government to get their hands on that information. Imagine being taxed per mile driven, or being mailed a speeding ticket because your GPS unit registered a higher-than-legal speed limit and broadcasted it to the police.

    That's an easy one to fix. Disconnect battery, find black box, open with screwdriver, remove circuitry, reconnect battery, start car, flip off government officials.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    What would be the point of following someone around like that?

    Bait Car? Parole violation?
    I don't see how it would matter to me.

    *ooooh noooo! She's going to . . . . class . . . . the grocery store . . . . *gaaaaasp* the gas station!*


    I'd feel sorry for the person who has to track me.

    Government isnt that dumb, they'll make maufactures put the said GPS into vehicles in away you'll have to remove other pieces in order to get to it and then the housing that contains the GPS will have special screws which then you have to go on the net to find the tool (which will be a bitch to find) in order to unscrew the said screws.

    Or you can just craft your own tool and be done with it

    Yeah for smarts.
