In a not so distant future this won't be just a joke.

> But, unfortunately, despite widespread support for it, Governor Brown has vetoed the bill, meaning that your mobile phones are fair game for searches without a warrant. Not only that, but he couldn't even make a statement to stand up for what he believes in about this, apparently only arguing that he vetoed the bill because "the issue is too complicated for him to make a decision about" and that it's better for the courts to decide.

I think most politicians in the world are ignorants and serve as puppets.

If I ever get pulled over for speeding this is what I do

Officer: May I see your driver's license?
Driver: I don't have one. I had it suspended when I got my fifth DUI.
Officer: Can I see the registration for this vehicle?
Driver: Oh, it's not my car. I stole it.
Officer: The car is stolen?
Driver: Yeah. Oh, but come to think of it, I think I saw the registration in the glove compartment when I was putting my gun in there.
Officer: You have a gun in there?
Driver: Yes sir. That's where I put it after I shot the lady who owns the car. She's in the trunk.
Officer: There's a BODY in the trunk?!?
The officer tells the man to hold on, backs off carefully, and calls for backup. Quickly, the car is surrounded by police, and the captain approaches the driver to handle the situation.
Captain: Sir, can I see your license?
Driver: Sure, Officer.
Captain: Hmm, this license is just fine. Whose car is this?
Driver: It's mine, officer. Here's the registration.
Captain: Could you slowly open the glove compartment, please, so I can see if there's a gun in there?
Driver: Yes, sir, but there's no gun in it.
He opens it, and sure enough, there's no gun.
Captain: Would you mind if we opened the trunk? I was told you said there's a body in there.
Driver: No problem.
The trunk is opened, nothing in there but a spare tire.
Captain: The officer who stopped you said you told him you didn't have a license, stole the car, had a gun in the glove compartment, and that there was a dead body in the trunk.
Driver: Yeah, I'll bet he told you I was speeding, too!

The only flaw on it is that I think they have cameras recording everything in their cars.

But it sure would be awesome in a country where they don't record everything! I wonder if it would work here... I guess it is better not try this here...

I keep thinking that Iceland and Germany set the standard for respecting the peoples privacy laws, but Germany just had a scandal with a botnet of government spyware in average peoples computers. And there's a new monitoring law that goes into effect next year in the EU that basically says the Government gets to log everything you do no matter what. And Germany is a part of the EU.
Iceland just passed a "Web Constitution" of sorts to protect people, but calling it a "Web" constitution is crazy horrible wording for the legal document. Because any judge could be paid or threatened to interpret it to apply *only* to the Web and not the rest of the internet. Leaving the vast majority of protocols (as the internet is not just http running on port 80) open for massive exploitation.

Here in murka everything is already monitored/logged. And after the Libyan Government turned off cell towers and the internet through out the whole country, our *fucking* President Obama ramrodded a law through legislation that allows the president to do the same thing in our country. A legal internet killswitch. *Obama immediately after went on nationwide television made a speech condemning the Libyan Government of turning off the internet saying how it's a violation of human rights.*
I just hate the morality of it all. I don't want to live in a country where I have route my entire OS through TOR just so a email I send to a friend about jamming on Saturday is *not* logged in seventeen fucking Government servers all across the nation.
My Government keeps scaring the spirit out of me. I'm scared. I really am.
