    It seems like Bloomberg is going senile.

It just happened that there were not that many eyes, or things like reliable witnesses like cameras. You still had the potential to have your actions witnessed, it was just less likely and people equated that with privacy. You are not private out in public. You are not private when using other people's things.
    You're private in your backyard, unless there's a drone orbitting your neighborhood, of course.

    We've been losing our privacy for years now and both parties are responsible.

    We no longer have politicians who care about "we the people." Today they only care about the party they belong to.

    Meh, I'll never go to New York and see no reason why anybody would ever choose to stay there. May as well be living under a dictatorship.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    When it comes to anti-2nd amendment laws a lot of people have the mentality "Oh its just New York I don't live there,so I don't have to worry" or "Oh just California I don't live there, so I don't have to worry". But the truth is these states are a preview of whats to come if we do not remind the elected officials who is the boss and who is the servant. That includes this spying on the public nonsense that those governments are doing.

    It's not just about the Second Amendment, it's the entire composition. Both New York and California are miserable failures when it comes to constitutional rights, and anyone who stays in those places ****s themselves. If more people left to states that honored American rights as stated in the Constitution, those states would learn something. Instead, they exacerbate the situation by subjugating themselves to that crap, as though they're peasants under a crown.

    'We're going to have more visibility and less privacy': Mayor Bloomberg admits soon NYPD surveillance cameras will be on nearly every corner and in the air - NY Daily News

    Big Brother is watching. Now get used to it!
    Envisioning a future where privacy is a thing of the past, Mayor Bloomberg said Friday it will soon be impossible to escape the watchful eyes of surveillance cameras and even drones in the city.
    He acknowledged privacy concerns, but said “you can’t keep the tides from coming in.”
    “You wait, in five years, the technology is getting better, they’ll be cameras everyplace . . . whether you like it or not,” Bloomberg said.
    The security measures have drawn scorn from some civil libertarians — but Bloomberg scoffed at privacy concerns on his Friday morning program on WOR-AM.
    “The argument against using automation is just this craziness that 'Oh, it’s Big Brother,’” Bloomberg said. “Get used to it!”
    It seems every week he's trying to assert control over new Yorkers...

    Hey new York, here I thought you guys were among the most fiercely independent set of people on the planet... And now you got daddy Bloomberg telling you what to eat, where to smoke, how to defend yourself, and now that he's going to watch your every move to make sure you behave....

    What happened to you??

    I have this theory that living in cramped overcrowded smog filled cities ****s your mind up.If you look at any population density/political map most of the liberals live in these cramped overcrowded smog filled cities.
