I know what you're thinking, "C'mon Blue, that'll NEVER happen." But let's think about that for a minute.

Let's say that to prevent Domestic and Child Abuse there was a bill called the Protect Women and Children Act. No legislator or politician would DARE vote against protecting women and children. The bill passes with overwhelming bipartisan support.

The bill stipulates the use of home surveillance as a means of protecting the innocent. The cameras will be federally funded and maintained by govt techs which will create jobs. Failure to comply will result in arrest and $5,000 fine everyday the system is not installed.

The entire National Security Community would rally around the bill calling it, "A necessary tool in the fight against terrorism." It would be linked to 911 Emergency services, Department of Homeland Security, and monitored 24/7.

But you say, "Wait a minute Blue, what about my rights??!!"

You already gave away your bank accounts, credit cards, emails, phone conversations, letters, free speech, privacy and habeous corpus, so why not?

Don't you want to stop Domestic Abuse and Child Abuse? Do you want the terrorist to WIN?

You've done nothing wrong. You don't want any trouble. You can't afford to pay the penalty. You also don't want to let Domestic and Child Abuse go unpunished. What would you do?

Would you let the govt put a CAMERA in your house??!!

    If a government told me to have a camera, what choice would I have?

    It sounds like a "brave new world"

    If you were unfortunate to be given an ankle tag and put you on a curfew.

    You would just say NO would you?

    And I was talking about not being able to JUST SAY NO, If a government enforcement agency tells you do it, You do it.

    You don't have the choice, you do it or you get a worse thing happen to you.

    Yes that was fairly obvious.

    My reply was asking you, would you disobey your government?

    Because it appears to me that you would, from your post.

    In the UK we go to prison or fined or both for disobeying the law.

    One always has a choice, just as one always receives the consequences of ones choice!

    It would not be suggested by anybody or passed by anybody. It would be prohibitively expensive, and we are already busy taking mandatory pictures inside people's uteruses, listening to their phone conversations and tracking their cell phones with GPS.

    I have not saved for retirement, I would be ok in jail for this untill it was overturned as unconstitutional... :-)

    I know that is easy to say, but I know what I would do.

    They might put one in, but after 30-seconds is wouldn't be working due to "poor installation" wink, wink.

    I am actually thinking of buying an outside camera but only for my security....I don'yt know whether I would be willing to accept a govermental department supplied one as it would depend on what it is going to be used for.

    Look all cameras can be remotely accessed now, So it does not matter what type or what purpose. They can use it.

    I have my truck parked in my drive and it permantly has some fairly valuable stuff in the back. So, a camera is a requirement and not a luxury for insurance purposes. My van is 10' .2 high and because it is right outside my front window, it totally blocks my view.

    Ok cameras are useful but they can be hijacked into other purposes other than the original one.

    Cameras are all ready in your house. It is called a Cell Phone with a Camera. All cameras on cell phones can be operating at anytime unless the battery is removed. That is the dirty secret. The cameras are already there. You brought them in yourself!

    It does make me a bit paranoid. You know I turn my iphone over and put it behind the clock at night. Also, I put a post it over the web cam in my computer. I always feel like it's looking at me!

    Why they can hear as well as see! The only safe way is to pull the battery. Unfortunately in Iphones you do not have that luxury!

    This would never happen as government doesn't give a rip about domestic abuse. But it could happen in the name of national security. The government needs to keep tract of everyone to prevent a new Bin Laden or some other imaginary fear from happening. We are moving towards Oceania and this would be the final nail.

    That is why I am a democrat. Republicans would love to do this. They initiated spying on people already. Whats wrong with a camera in your house? What are you hiding?

    GW did it remember? Spying on citizens was suppose to be only with a court order which was easy to get. But GW didn't want to go through the hassle so he never did. Then afterwards they changed the law. Democrats are far from perfect but it is generally the republicans who push us closer to Oceania.

    President Obama extended the law for another 4 years. Maybe it's not about political party?
  • ehrhornp BlueRep... 2012/05/04 16:42:59

    I know he did and I blasted him for it. But it is always more difficult to eliminate something once it has been instituted and GW instituted it.

    You would think that a Constitutional Law professor from Harvard (Obama) would know when not to sign (NDAA) or extend (PatriotAct) unconstitutional laws...just saying....

    One would think. Still it was GW who ignored it. But that is what happens when only moderates run from the democratic party.

    I believe if the government tried they would regret it.
