This is just a sample of how our government takes our civil liberties away one by one. And it's all in the name of your own safety!! How considerate of them!

Dude, we're so f***ed already, this is just another pebble in the pond. We're going to end up being a police state (officially) here shortly, I'm afraid...

Um... How do you figure that? Why would they even make them available?

They're gonna say, "why would you NOT want to be ID'd? Do you have something to hide? If you don't want to be ID'd, then you must be hiding something! If you're hiding something, you're not patriotic! If you're not patriotic, you're a terrorist!!!!"

This is a seriously slippery slope man...

And make an underground house, to hide the heat signatures and save on your heating and cooling requirements...


Yea, I'm sort of paranoid... It comes from being on the streets for too long, I think...

That is not the point.  We should never be put into the situation where those contacts are needed in the first place.  To say "who gives a fuck?" gives the impression that you are a submissive pansy with his head in sand.  Take my privacy away so I have to go spend money on defensive measures.  Not to mention if these contacts would even be legal and/or safe.

How the fuck is your privacy at stake when you're in public :imslow:

You loose all aspects of privacy when you walk out your front door each day.

There are many ways people can trace you, this is really no different

Give me one good example of how this is wrong or affects your privacy in any way

Don't you realize it's a cumulative affect that these "safety measures" have, not an immediate one? Can you tell me which specific shingle on a roof keeps the rain out? You can't, because it's a a combination of all the shingles working together. It's the same way with things such as this, they implement new procedures to be able to identify and track people easier, and to "keep you safe". The media uses inflamatory phrases in their lobbying of bills by preying on people's irrational fears of what they are ignorant of. They use key phrases such as "the safety of our children", "haven for terrorism", and other words that spark fear in the heart of the populace to mask the true intent of such legislation.

Honestly, I know I'm not going to sell you on my beliefs. Most of the populace is content with their ignorance of the sheep they truly are. Do you remember how Russia kept their populace at arms against the "western evil"? Propaganda, my friend. Keep the populace convinced you have their best interests in mind, and they'll believe anything...

let me ask you this: how do you feel about the mosque that the muslims are wanting to build a couple blocks from ground zero in New York?

Oh god here we go

I honestly have no issue with them building their mosque anywhere they want.
They got permission over a year ago to build this and no one complained.
At least not till some politician put a religious, patriotic spin on it
to get ignorant tea bagging, shit stains riled up over this non issue

Haha! Good answer... honestly, I think there's only a controversy because the government thinks that people aren't still upset about 9/11 as they want them to be... lol

Honestly, I couldn't care less either, I was just hoping you weren't completely blindly devoted... lol
