Black Boxes, or “mandatory event data recorders” will now be installed in your “new” car in 2015, they will record your mileage, locations, and speeds before and during accidents. Of course, it takes no electronic genius to imagine this information being enlarged to provide the government with continuous information concerning you and your transportation, and there is some speculation that the law will become inclusive of all licensed cars since the technology is rather simple and doesn’t require the advanced technology of computerized systems. The bill has been passed by the Senate in March and is expected to be rubber stamped by the House.
This bill — known as “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act,” or MAP-21 is conspicuous with the “Moving Ahead for Progress” phrase as a clever way for the Progressive Socialists to hide their intent at control in plain sight. It becomes only a short step for the Progressives of the future to institute mandatory “carbon footprint” control by limiting individual mileage and imposing huge fines for those who exceed their limits. Is it hard to imagine, the technology is in place and it is conceivable that Obama and Pelosi will still be in power in 2015.
The bill has a right to privacy provision, but we have seen how easy it is for the tyrants of Progressive Socialism and their stooges in the Supreme Court to circumvent rights in the implementation of control, control is good if it is for the good of society or the environment through the prism of Global Warming Heresy, is the philosophy of the Progressive Socialists. The very word “Progressive” suggests that the spirit of progressive revolution among the International Marxists is an ever advancing and relents assault on freedom. It is their profound belief that an incremental approach will eventually consolidate their tyranny of control over an unsuspecting public. The “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act” is a major victory against a naive and unsuspecting public, and the sleeping representatives in Washington.
Obviously, the bill wouldn’t pass if the opportunity for abuse was blatant, but Obama has demonstrated how easy it is to manipulate the law, in the future it will always be there for the Marxists to use for control of the masses.
The same bill would allow the IRS to revoke passports of citizens accused of owing more than $50,000 in back taxes, according to PrisonPlanet.com, a website of radio show host Alex Jones – described by Rolling Stone as “a giant in America’s conspiracy subculture.”
How ironic, now that Americans are renouncing their citizenship to avoid the US tax laws, the same bill will now revoke the passport of those owing back taxes, and I am sure Buffet who owes a billion will have his passport rescinded, oh sure! As some one who has been caught in this trap of working internationally and paying taxes in two different countries, it is tempting to want to tell the IRS to take their oppression and stuff it where the sun doesn’t shine.
‘SEC. 7345. REVOCATION OR DENIAL OF PASSPORT IN CASE OF CERTAIN TAX DELINQUENCIES.
‘(a) In General- If the Secretary receives certification by the Commissioner of Internal Revenue that any individual has a seriously delinquent tax debt in an amount in excess of $50,000, the Secretary shall transmit such certification to the Secretary of State for action with respect to denial, revocation, or limitation of a passport pursuant to section 4 of the Act entitled ‘An Act to regulate the issue and validity of passports, and for other purposes’, approved July 3, 1926 (22 U.S.C. 211a et seq.), commonly known as the ‘Passport Act of 1926’.
‘(b) Seriously Delinquent Tax Debt- For purposes of this section, the term ‘seriously delinquent tax debt’ means an outstanding debt under this title for which a notice of lien has been filed in public records pursuant to section 6323 or a notice of levy has been filed pursuant to section 6331, except that such term does not include–
‘(1) a debt that is being paid in a timely manner pursuant to an agreement under section 6159 or 7122, and
‘(2) a debt with respect to which collection is suspended because a collection due process hearing under section 6330, or relief under subsection (b), (c), or (f) of section 6015, is requested or pending.
‘(c) Adjustment for Inflation- In the case of a calendar year beginning after 2012, the dollar amount in subsection (a) shall be increased by an amount equal to–
‘(1) such dollar amount, multiplied by
‘(2) the cost-of-living adjustment determined under section 1(f)(3) for the calendar year, determined by substituting ‘calendar year 2011’ for ‘calendar year 1992’ in subparagraph (B) thereof.
If any amount as adjusted under the preceding sentence is not a multiple of $1,000, such amount shall be rounded to the next highest multiple of $1,000.’.
This same bill wants to prevent those who owe $50,000 or more in taxes to have their passports revoked. Please tell me why this isn’t an Orwellian attack on your freedom.

Obama and the Marxists impose this type of legislation with the intent of imposing totalitarian control in the future, that is obvious, but our Republican legislators allow it to proceed under cover a veil of stupidity.
