Outrage–Obama claims citizens have no privacy
Source: Examiner

In a direct Nazi-and-Communist styled attack on a time-honored American value, the Obama Administration claims that citizens have no privacy.

The privacy issue in this case involves GPS tracking devices. The Administration is urging a federal appeals court to allow the government to attach the tracking devices to vehicles sitting in private driveways, monitoring their every move, without a Court warrant.

According to Wired.com:

The Justice Department is demanding a federal appeals court rehear a case in which it reversed the conviction and life sentence of a cocaine dealer whose vehicle was tracked via GPS for a month, without a court warrant. The authorities then obtained warrants to search and find drugs in the locations where defendant Antoine Jones had travelled.

The administration, in urging the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to reverse a three-judge panel’s August ruling from the same court, said Monday that Americans should expect no privacy while in public.

Although the case in question refers specifically to criminals, the key to understanding the outrage and the threat to the privacy of ALL citizens is in the phrase, ‘…Americans should expect no privacy while in public.’

Two key problems rest with this unconscionable theory.

First, the government’s argument maintains that ‘public’ refers to a vehicle sitting in a driveway on private property. The Feds want to be able to trespass on private property in order to attach a GPS tracking device on private vehicles. It is quite a stretch to consider private property to be ‘in public.’

What is next if the government is allowed to get away with this violation of accepted values? If you step out of your shower and enter the ‘public’ living room of your home, are you thus ‘parading around naked in public?’ Could you be arrested for what you do inside your own home?

A dangerous slippery slope is created by allowing the ever-growing snoop-whores of Big Brother to gain yet another foothold in what was formerly considered sacred ground–the privacy of citizens.

I really don’t have words. I wish I could say I’m surprised, but I am not.

    NO surprises here…our government has decided that WE THE PEOPLE are nothing more than an endless resource to be mined…and as such we are told that what they to us is for our own good. WE THE PEOPLE have finally chosen slavery for ourselves and our children over personal responsibility and self determination. We have allowed ourselves to become chattel, it started in 1930’s and has just progressed along until now we are at full throttle. A train wreck to be sure. And all we can do is watch us crash and burn, whilst our elite rulers in DC continue the pillage and raping of the American taxpayer. They have become our masters, and they know it…and soon enough many will awaken and wonder how the hell it happened. Sad just sad.
