Slow Down! Big Brother Is Watching!

Weary of the news…then maybe I can help you out…..

I love weekends….I use to go for a drive on weekends….take off and drive until you feel a stop is needed.  My usual stopping point was when I saw a diner or eatery or a pub….

As usual we were out for a drive and one of those signs  came into view….you know the ones….the ones that tell you how fast you are going…..and you then adjust your gas peddle to come into the legal limit… do know the ones I mean, right?

In these days when you are under the magnifying glass from everyone…..I mean we are spied upon constantly…our buying trends, our travel trends, etc etc etc…….

I dined in some cool places….Do Drop Inn, the Coffee Pot, Hot Coffee’s (name of a town on the back roads) Greet and Eat and a spot called “the Pour house”…..just to mention a few.

But back to those speed limit signs… what do those “speed limit” signs have to do with domestic spying?

If you’ve been a driver in the United States for any length of time, you have most likely passed at least one of those interactive road signs that show you how fast you’re driving. It turns out, those signs may be doing more than you think they are.

You can now add digital speed signs to the list of known automated license plate readers (ALPRs). According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), ALPRs can be found on “street poles, street lights, highway overpasses, mobile trailers, or attached to police squad cars.”

Thanks to a special notice released in August, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will be using RU2 Systems trailer-mounted speed displays “retrofitted as mobile LPR [License Plate Reader] platforms.” RU2 Systems Inc. is a private Mesa, Arizona company.

They are watching you!

Are you paranoid yet?

May you weekend begin with some joy and end with a little adventure…..chuq


The weekend begins and I would like to introduce my readers to a new website (stop here and let people know that I am in NO way being compensated for this post)……

I started this site IST with the hopes that we could have a spirited debate on issues…..that was wishful thinking on my part……while I have had some great debates with readers I have also had visitors that were the typical influx of insults and false facts.

If there are others out there that enjoy a spirited debate then may I suggest that they check out this new website…..

There are many debates on a wide array of topics…like politics, ethics, science, philosophy, gender, etc etc…….

If you enjoy a good debate then stop by this site and see if it is to your liking.

There is also another debate site that you might check into (again no compensation for the mention of the site)…….

Again many topics……guns, veganism, DNA testing, etc, etc………find one you like and join in the debate.

I feel that debates are how ideas take hold and grow……join the fun……join the conversation.
