All The News That Fits

Cars.Gov, A Horror Story

Posted by E. on July 31, 2009

Are you scared now?

Because you should be!

I don’t care what side of the aisle you align yourself with, you should be able to see the inherent Big Brother danger in this one.  You should be frightened by this.  You should be dismayed by this.  You should be angered by this.

This isn’t about left or right, liberal or conservative.  This is about The United States of America, the threat to the freedoms on which she was founded, and the utter and horrific transformation that is taking place right before our eyes.

Don’t try to defend it.  Don’t try to excuse it.  The government has no right, no right, to claim your personal computer for itself and access any and all of the information it wants.  But that is exactly what they are doing.

What is on your computer?

A personal diary?
Information and passwords to access your bank account or pay your bills?
Other financial records?
Your blog URL and passwords?
An address book with the names and contact information of all your friends and family?
A record of your charitable contributions?
Access to your email account(s)?
Credit card information?
Pictures of your children?

Go to cars.gov and now the federal government owns it.  All of it.

So, to those of you who find this perfectly fine, acceptable, and no big deal?  I hope you enjoy the world you are creating.  Enjoy your lack of freedom.  Enjoy your total accountability to the government.  Enjoy your complete dependence on people who don’t really give a damn about you.  In short?  Enjoy your enslavement.

How long, I wonder, until this language appears on all government web sites? 

I’m mad.  Can you tell I’m mad?  Because I’m mad.  And I don’t mean in a mentally unstable kind of way.

  1. This is absolutely terrifying.
    People really need to wake up.
    I don’t like Glen Beck either, but this information is undeniable.

    No need to be terrified, this is for the dealer only as they are entering into a business agreement with the government. It is not for the consumer.

    I’d like to believe you, but I’m not willing to go to cars.gov (which many auto websites now link to *for the consumers*) to test that theory. If you are, and you do, let us know if you get that message about taking over your computer. Plus? Glenn Beck isn’t a car dealer, yet he still got that screen. And? Should the government even be able to take over the car dealer’s computers? Absolutely not. Even that idea is terrifying.

    This week government spokesmen are saying “Whoops! We didn’t really mean that and we’ve taken it down.”

    So, apparently the message is gone. I wonder if the malware that got into your computer went along with it?

    I knew this wasn’t true and went to the website, you only come across this if you click on dealer and and put in dealer id and password. If you listen closely to Beck, he says “dealer”. A consumer (without obtaining dealer security info) cannot access it.

    They have taken down their horrific language since it became public knowlege. Again, whether it was only applicable to dealers or not, it is/was reprehensible and terrifying.
