    If government can force you to buy health insurance can they also force you to pay for a box that will track you? Guarantee this will lead to carbon taxes based on how much you drive.

    Tracking? I thought that was what Onstar was for. And a guarantee from you is like a fart in the wind.

    And yet you willfully own a cell phone that can do the same exact thing that Onstar can. Irony, look it up.

    You just can't admit that the crazy CT were right again, you have to make it about me to deflect.

    Im not deflecting anything, that would assume that you were coming at me with anything. I am calling you out on your stupid nonsense about carbon taxes and the fact that you were going to go down the inevitable road of constant tracking while you admittedly own a cell phone that if not in your pocket right now it is next to you that can track you within 10 feet of your current location in your mom's basement. Its ok, lady kirk, keep trying to throw haymakers when you are guilty of the "trendy" bullshit that you like to come down on everyone else around here about. You can take your entitled assumption about yourself somewhere else, no one here buys your horseshit nonsense.

    A cell phone doesn't keep track of how much gas I use.

    i hate to break it to the tin foil hat crowd but the air bag module in ever single car has had that ability since the early 1990's ive helped extract the info, my neighbor used to have the software to do it. its kind of cool if you punch it into a spread sheet you can actually watch the crash happen buy the millisecond, also if you are involved in an accident and the police ask if they look in your car they can and will pull the air bag module and they will and can prosecute you with out a search warrant

    No, dummy, your credit card does that.

    Oh, wait... your mom took that away after you bought two big bags of Sour Patch Kids and threw up all over her couch.

    Yeah it says that in the article I posted. I don't see how that makes someone a tin foil hat if its happening out in the open.

    well the ECU in the car will do that for you, thats how a modern car gets 30-40mpg. the ecu records your shitty driving habits and changes the spark curve and injector pulse to compensate for it.

    and i can extract that info also.

    oh and thats been around since the mid 1980's when fuel injection was mandated also.

    And do you really not understand the difference between that and the device that FEZ MAN was referring to? Are you that dense?

    What's the timeframe for that happening? 5 years? 15 years? 50 years?

    This better happen before they march us all into FEMA death camps, otherwise it'll be a pretty moot point, donchathink?

    he is so is the retard that wrote the article, the air bag module is what makes the system work every car with an air bag has one and every one records the information. it just depends on how much info it saves and in what format. in the old days we used to pull the brake lights out and check the filaments in the bulbs to see if they were distorted, now the abs module will tell you all of that so will the stability control. they all have recordable e-proms in them

    also "back in the day" we used to pull speedometers and shine a black light on them and you can see were the needle hit the dash to find the speed at impact.

    There are iPhone apps that let you read the info off your car's e-proms now. It's not like you even need a fancy reader to access them anymore.

    I can't download a lot of those Android apps because I refuse to get a google account.
