If this comes to pass.
The Government will know --
Where yo go
how long you have been there
how fast you got there
Know your speed - Issue a speeding ticket through your GPS
Talk about invasion of privacy
Also, do you think they will do away with the current gas tax, NOPE, this will just be a add on.
Then you'd have a system like in my hometown which runs buses 3/4 empty. Public transportation can work great in urban areas...notsomuch in rural and suburban areas.Wouldn't it be nice if we had great public transportation everywhere?
IMO... the whole stimulus bill could have been just that and it would have been great for us.
No they wouldn't, or at least no they weren't when gas prices were higher. The fatal flaw is that it's horribly inefficient to drive buses out into the county (with any frequency to get people to use it) to pick up a person or two every few miles. It's not profitable and it's not environmentally friendly.If gas prices go up, those buses would be full.
Great bumper sticker!They are also talking about a Smart Grid that would track your electricity use under the guise of being energy efficient and "green" with tax rebates and credits.
They attach a counter to your electric meter and track what temp your house is and when and for how long. Surcharges wil be placed when your temp reaches above the limit "Big Brother" has set. Surcharges will be double and triple the avg unit cost not just cost "more".
The Mileage Tax and the Smart Grid are both Forced Compliance...welcome to "Hope and Change".
