|"We're from the Government, we're here to help"|
I just read an incredibly ponderous article on the Drudge Report. It is in the online version of Time Magazine. Apparently, the only time you have a reasonable expectation of privacy, is if you are wealthy and live behind a gate - otherwise, the government is perfectly within their right to plant a GPS on your vehicle (in your driveway - on your private property - without a warrant) and track you (without a warrant)! And we live in a free country that values personal property rights?
In reality, maybe we shouldn't be to surprised or upset that the courts have ruled that we have no reasonable expectation of privacy on our personal property. After all doesn't the landlord have the right to enter his property any time he sees fit? Can't a landlord do with his property as he will? We are just peasants serving our king after all.
