‘Black boxes’ required in new cars by 2014


"the insurance industry supports the move. even though most drivers are unaware that 96% of cars sold today already have data recorders installed."

The NSA is building an enormous spy center, probably the biggest ever, in Bluffdale Utah. The incredible processing power of this facility will be used to scan e-mails, phone calls, text messages, tweets or any other kind of communication.

Obama campaign app concerns some privacy advocates

The Obama administration’s war on privacy

Trust him. He'll take care of your privacy.

The athiests have been fighting since the sixties. They've never stopped. They're winning.

Diversity before common sense is winning also. It has never stopped either.

So much to do... yup... centralized control... we'll make it sooner or later.

Trust the lord and saviour President Obama. He'll take care of you.

The attack on privacy is not party political, warrantless wiretaps...

Not sure what the atheists have to do with it, nor what "diversity before common sense" means in this context.

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that ...

Reading the full article makes for some scary thoughts: -

"Meanwhile, over in Building 5300, the NSA succeeded in building an even faster supercomputer. “They made a big breakthrough,” says another former senior intelligence official, who helped oversee the program. The NSA’s machine was likely similar to the unclassified Jaguar, but it was much faster out of the gate, modified specifically for cryptanalysis and targeted against one or more specific algorithms, like the AES. In other words, they were moving from the research and development phase to actually attacking extremely difficult encryption systems. The code-breaking effort was up and running.

The breakthrough was enormous, says the former official, and soon afterward the agency pulled the shade down tight on the project, even within the intelligence community and Congress. “Only the chairman and vice chairman and the two staff directors of each intelligence committee were told about it,” he says. The reason? “They were thinking that this computing breakthrough was going to give them the ability to crack current public encryption.”

In addition to giving the NSA access to a tremendous amount of Americans’ personal data, such an advance would also open a window on a trove of foreign secrets. While today most sensitive communications use the strongest encryption, much of the older data stored by the NSA, including a great deal of what will be transferred to Bluffdale once the center is complete, is encrypted with more vulnerable ciphers. “Remember,” says the former intelligence official, “a lot of foreign government stuff we’ve never been able to break is 128 or less. Break all that and you’ll find out a lot more of what you didn’t know—stuff we’ve already stored—so there’s an enormous amount of information still in there.”

These people need removed from office. If civil war is what it takes then civil war is what it takes.

I believe calling for an armed insurrection is still a crime. As that data center isn't online yet the next knock on you door won't be to put you into a rubber room, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least if you are already on the no fly list.

I really don't give a damn what the hell you say. I have not called for a armed insurrection.

Oh really?

Wars=guns=armed insurrection.

Now who is twisting words. People with your views used to be called fifth columnists and Reds under the bed.

@Gary - As far as I know we don't have anything specifically called a "no fly list". But all western governments regularly swop intelligence details of known anti government protesters and active subversives, and the UK Border Agency regularly updates its database of those listed as "undesirables" who will be refused entry.

No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act

Chris, I believe you and I are both witnesses to the same overt act.

I think your grammar is a bit tortuous to say the least, but I accept the gist of what you meant to say.
