Skip to comments.Big Brother Is Consolidating Control Incrementally

Black Boxes, or mandatory event data recorders will now be installed in your "new" car in 2015, they will record your mileage, locations, and speeds before and during accidents. Of course, it takes no electronic genius to imagine this information being enlarged to provide the government with continuous information concerning you and your transportation, and there is some speculation that the law will become inclusive of all licensed cars since the technology is rather simple and doesn't require the advanced technology of computerized systems. The bill has been passed by the Senate in March and is expected to be rubber stamped by the House.
This bill known as Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act, or MAP-21 is conspicuous with the "Moving Ahead for Progress" phrase as a clever way for the Progressive Socialists to hide their intent at control in plain sight. It becomes only a short step for the Progressives of the future to institute mandatory "carbon footprint" control by limiting individual mileage and imposing huge fines for those who exceed their limits. Is it hard to imagine, the technology is in place and it is conceivable that Obama and Pelosi will still be in power in 2015.
The bill has a right to privacy provision, but we have seen how easy it is for the tyrants of Progressive Socialism and their stooges in the Supreme Court to circumvent rights in the implementation of control, control is good if it is for the good of society or the environment through the prism of Global Warming Heresy, is the philosophy of the Progressive Socialists. The very word "Progressive" suggests that the spirit of progressive revolution among the International Marxists is an ever advancing and relents assault on freedom. It is their profound belief that an incremental approach will eventually consolidate their tyranny of control over an unsuspecting public. The "Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act" is a major victory against a naive and unsuspecting public, and the sleeping representatives in Washington.
Obviously, the bill wouldn't pass if the opportunity for abuse was blatant, but Obama has demonstrated how easy it is to manipulate the law, in the future it will always be there for the Marxists to use for control of the masses.
The same bill would allow the IRS to revoke passports of citizens accused of owing more than $50,000 in back taxes, according to PrisonPlanet.com, a website of radio show host Alex Jones described by Rolling Stone as a giant in Americas conspiracy subculture.
How ironic, now that Americans are renouncing their citizenship to avoid the US tax laws, the same bill will now revoke the passport of those owing back taxes, and I am sure Buffet who owes a billion will have his passport rescinded, oh sure! As some one who has been caught in this trap of working internationally and paying taxes in two different countries, it is tempting to want to tell the IRS to take their oppression and stuff it where the sun doesn't shine.

I wouldn’t worry about it. I don’t believe the world as it is will be around in 2015.
Yes, everyone should provide blog hits to someone named "Skookum"....
“...is expected to be rubber stamped by the House.”
We need recorded votes. What’s the 11/6 bag limit on RINOs?
I’ve got enough older vehicles to last me until I die. The last new car I bought was in 1992. That’s long gone. I’m driving a 1987 POS that I expect to last at least another ten years.
But how long will it run on E15 gas?
Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act
Lord, they really can’t help themselves from sounding like idiots (if not commies), can they? Who writes these bill names? I’d say it was an excuse to get some catchy acronym, but MAP-21 speaks for itself.
Why don’t they go all the way and sound like a half-english fortune cookie, as in the “2012 Sunshine Smile Happiness Goodtime Car Monitor So You Be Happy Citizen, Yeah! Act.”
Good point. I don’t drive much these days, I’m thinking of taking a couple of 55 gal. barrels down to the marina and filing them with boat gas. Locally we can buy avgas too. The EPA won’t mess with airplane fuel. Planes falling out of the sky due to bad gas makes for really negative publicity.
I’ll be happy driving my 2004 Chevy Silverado when all the rest of you are being monitored 24/7 by DHS.
Don’t have a cell phone for the same reason.
Hey nosey, frigging, government busybody, nanny state, bureaucrats: Monitor THIS!
Is that old enough to survive an EMP? If so, you've got a real treasure.
Black boxes have been in your car for over a decade, probably closer to 2. If your car is EFI it has a computer, if it has a computer it has that buffer of data for accidents. The law is stupid, and intrusive, but it won’t actually change much of anything.
>Locally we can buy avgas too.
Avgas = Diesel fuel, IIRC.
Gee, Mr. Suit, I don’t know how that thing fell out of my car.
Mileage tax right around the corner!
Avgas is aviation gasoline. Absolutely no ethanol.
Ah, sorry, I was thinking JP8 (jet fuel).
>Mileage tax right around the corner!
Already exists; see the extra taxes put on commercial over-road vehicles.
This blog comment about sums it up.

It’s not a coincidence. Politicians, pundits, and professional, revolving-door bureacrats are 100% revenge of the f*cking nerds. Every loser in high school or college that just knew he was smarter and better than everyone else is in DC pacticing politics, writing about politics, and arbitrarily f*cking up the lives of everyone else with regulations just because they can.
