At least we don't have RFID dust and some of the other fun toys described here.

It must be nice to be so important.
That's Orwellian too. In 1984 there is a nice explanation as to why they bother. It's the power.

Thanks, shame that we need some of these (or that some feel we need them).

If you ever wonder why a middle-aged woman is crossing her eyes and sticking out her tongue at store mannequins, that'll be me - 'cause clothes shopping is already stressful enough without all this nonsense.

(and why is it the school's business where the kids are at 8 p.m.?)

In light of the school shootings there will probably be armed guards at elementary schools. Either keeping someone in (kids) or someone out (someone else's kid). After watching Bowling for Columbine, it puts a light on how fear is being used to control us. Yes limit assault guns, but our freedom of speech?-NEVER!
I though sublimal advertising was illegal. If the government wanted to snoop on bus passengers, why not snoop on couples and "protect" everyone from domestic violence/rapists/druggies...to what extent will "protection" be used to shush the rest of us who are NOT target terrorists??? (sarcasm).

Yes and this.. On the news this week an annoucement came that verison is seeking a patton for a dvr that can see into our living rooms to watch what we do. Meaning they have already tested it. They want to control all of us.. A chip in the brain to control our minds and the rest of the stuff and so much racism and class warfare... We have arrived... To the world of the "things"

And it the fault of every American to allow our society to become a surveillance society. In NH, one Dunkin Donuts alone has 12-15 cameras.In the 1990s Dunkin Donuts was briefly exposed for having hidden audio surveillance inside. It was never explained why this was going on in Massachusetts. In NH movie theaters are setting up cameras like crazy and you can be labeled a pervert or pedophile simply by your movie choices or the fact that you might like to see more than one movie at a time(there used to be things callled 'double features'. Once a person is profiled, theaters alert each other and guilt is presumed until proven innocent. I write movie reviews and have been subjected to thjis from many movie theaters in NH. One time i was asked to leave a theater because i went to see Kung Fu Panda by myself,

Consider that when the American Revolution was being planned, planners met in pubs, houses,etc. to dicuss formation of the new America. Had surveillance capabilities like we have now been available, the organizers would have been rounded up and no revolution would have taken place.By having surveillance cameras everywhere, you and all of your associations can be tracked. Detractors and their supporters can be identified and dealt with.And all Americans have willngly given up their rights to privacy.

Jaime, your last comment explains exactly why w have these surveillance capabilities being put to use. they are afraid we will take back the power that rightly belongs to the people, but has been usurped.
