Slippery slope to serfdom. It is here.

 China Model and the end our freedom

It starts with your new automobile purchase. This lawyer lays it out in 20 minutes worth watching.

I, for one, will never buy a vehicle with this technology.


As always, YMMV

Two thoughts:
-People will be hanging on to older cars they can drive without "Big Brother's" permission.
-If... we still live in a capitalist country, someone will come up with a way to defeat this crap, and make big money in the process.
(When does the revolution start?)

There have been attempts to prohibit repairing older cars that, so far, have been defeated.

This wretched law was slipped into a much larger bill which, we all know, is a common tactic.

About a year ago I needed to rent a car for a day and Enterprise (my only option where I live) put me into a fully loaded Ford Focus. The "lane assist" function drove me to distraction. Kept coming up with a message I was drowsy and should stop to rest.

Disabling some of these proposed functions would let insurance companies off the hook if you get into an accident.

This grumpy old man wants reliability, climate control, and cruise control. The other stuff doesn't interest me.

Nope. NOT going there or doing that...

Given Ford's recent engineering failures, wouldn't buy one even if my principals would allow it.

. It is no surprise that the Delusional Joe Biden had another misinformation campaign bash
Former President Donald Trump trying to deflect from embarrassment Biden that supported the irresponsible speech of the Honorific Democrat Senate Leader Schumer that promote a Regime Change in Israel interfering in the internal affairs of US ally Israel, as if Israel is a US colony not a sovereign country, that angered many Israelis and many Jewish Americans in US. Shame on you Schumer your speech was not only Disgusting, but completely false, and UNWARRANTED.
How dare Schumer call for an insurrection by one of our allies.
Schumer is a very dangerous person and should resign immediately.
His violent rhetoric is very dangerous. He is radicalizing left wing racists.
And to make matters even worse, Joe Biden said that he totally agreed with him

n his HORRIFIC , DISGUSTING, speech Chuck Schumer actually said that Jews that continue to vote for Democrats must “Hate Israel” and therefor hate their own religion, which ignited a firestorm of criticism from the White House and other Jewish leaders and voters..
And Mr. Schumer, who is the highest-ranking Jewish elected official in the United States. continued “However, I also believe Prime Minister Netanyahu has lost his way by allowing his political survival to take precedence over the best interests of Israel. He added: “He has been too willing to tolerate the civilian toll in Gaza, which is pushing support for Israel worldwide to historic lows. Israel cannot survive if it becomes a pariah.” Schumer Urged New Leadership in Israel, Calling Netanyahu an Obstacle to Peace.
And to make matters even worse, Joe Biden agreed totally with what he said. .

HAMAS said that More attacks will come. And That They Wont Stop!.
HAMAS also makes the civilian casualties worse by using them for "shields", taking their Hostages, their Children, their food etc. That helps their propaganda for the stupid people like Chuck Schumer! Does he expect them to crawl back into the ovens?
They are OUR Ally and a democratic country. He can call out his policy differences and voice his opinion, but wanting an elected leader removed no matter how distasteful he may find him is not a wise, nor a good choice, or an approach. America is NEVER supposed to call for a Nation to CHANGE their Leader, especially during War!
What gives "us" or HIM the right to demand anything of a Foreign Government? This was Outrageous.
Why is there NO demand in the U.N. for Hamas to Surrender, lay down its arms, and release all hostages? They were the Attacker! Why is the whole world demanding that Israel back off, but nobody is demanding that Hamas back off, which would end the Hostilities immediately?

For the record, Schumer doesn’t speak for me, on anything.
Ever hear the term., NEVER AGAIN!

All because of Biden’s economy is so wonderful.
And 2024 is looking grim too. And it's only March.
Nearly 40% of business leaders surveyed think layoffs are likely at their companies this year, and about half say their companies will implement a hiring freeze. Resume Builder talked to about 900 leaders at organizations with more than 10 employees. Those above cited concerns about a recession, and a very bad economy as well as the Crime, and Looting as a reason.
So, Hang onto your panties, hell is coming if Biden should win.... Thanks Joe Biden.
