Big Brother is at it again

This just in from Reuters: “National Highway Traffic Safety Administration chief David Strickland told a congressional hearing on Thursday that the regulator is considering whether to make “black boxes” mandatory for all new vehicles.

The devices can capture data on speed, braking effort and other details which can be vital in reconstructing accidents.”

The government has been infringing on our rights for a long time and this is just a progression of the norm I suppose. The most injurious thing is that it is being implemented by a bureaucrat, not necessarily an elected politician. Big Brother though got started here in Iowa. If you didn’t know it already, police can disable your car through Onstar or other similar services. Big Brother is already here, we are asleep at the wheel.

Thank you for reading this blog.
