Been through a lot in 70 years, and have kept great blood pressure because I don't scare easily..If I were going to quote scripture...I would say I have been given a spirit of faith not fear....Just quietly live my life and have a loaded gun ready.....Been a Rush listener since the 1990’s and lived through Jimmy Carter, riots and the burnings in the cities across this country, assassination of 2 Kennedy's, Martin L. King, and an attempt on Wallace. Riots at the Democrat convention in the 60’s and that is just off the top of my head, Oh yea, campus riots, attacks on Recruiters for the military and people yelling baby killers at returning vets...What are your credentials for being scared?

This NXbit can be used on home computers that are not networked? Does it work with all OS? I was trying to research intrusion protection systems after listening to Beck earlier, but it was a little confusing to someone limited understanding of all this computer tech stuff.

Also, I believe my pc is probably running as an admin user. How do you change it?

Thanks for your expertise, Tarpon. :~)

No, but any consumer who went to a dealership and had their personal and financial info input appears to have been screwed.

UPDATE on Glenn Beck Story on Cars.gov Privacy Agreement That Taps Into User's PC

Glenn Beck exposes a privacy agreement on the "Cash for Clunkers" website that in part reads: "This application provides access to the DoT CARS system. When logged on to the CARS system, your computer is considered a Federal computer system and is the property of the U.S. Government."

I’m guessing the government was getting that information anyway. I can’t imagine anyone thought they would be getting a rebate from the government without the government knowing who they are.

I don’t know about ‘just by being on the internet’ but people’s files get updated all the time by automatic downloads and service packs, who the hell knows what those changes are...

I travel all over the internet daily with an understanding that nothing is private really on the internet and this is my opinion after reading volumes of stuff over the years.

Note: There was a warning to not go on the website until the privacy language is changed. Watch the video clip instead that is in the post for which I pinged you.

A related link with the text of the waiver...

Why does the CARS system consider your computer property of the United States Government?

Question for the left: You all had a cow about FISA. Why no cows now...?

Sighing...All the interesting persons on the left and far beyond the left who screamed everytime some program went in to monitor/target terrorists and they screamed, “Invasion of privacy.” Yet when the healthcare bill came out for all to read and when the Obama administration said all medical records will be in one national database because....(fill in the blanks) ... not one peep from the left. Well, so much to say, but I’m a lady, so I’ll leave it at that.
