Wow! Two things come to mind from that. With the US issuing the RFID tags to foreign trucking vehicles, either the government has installed RFID readers along the interstates, which is really scary, or two, they scan the tags at weigh stations. Hopefully it is the second one!

It's about time to scan the frequency they transmit at and jam it.

I'm totally fed up with this shit. Our government (UK) seems to delight in finding new ways to interfere in every aspect of our lives - there are more and more transactions between people that have to include a third party - i.e. the government, or involve more and more monitoring and control. Don't let it happen in the US.

Funny you should say that-the lack of civil protest exhibited in the west recently,compared to the good old 60s causes me a great degree of concern.Something appears to have happened to our collective consciouness.Sounds like a good subject for debate in 'off topic'......if anyone can be arsed to get the thing started.zzzzzzzzz.

I blame the lack of protesters on Reagan's "Say no to drugs" campaign. Radicals got sober, looked in the mirror and saw how silly they looked with the scraggly beards and granny glasses.......They are now are our "Metrosexuals", an equally distasteful lot.

Difference is now there is a greater control of the media than in the 60's.

Yes,there is an unsettling submissive attitude here and seems that everyone is more concerned about who's screwing who in Hollywood but maybe that's what Big Brother wants.
