A bill rambling thru NY has contained within it —

“Any person who operates a motor vehicle in the state shall be deemed to have given consent to field testing of his or her mobile telephone and/or personal electronic device for the purpose of determining the use thereof while operating a motor vehicle, provided that such testing is conducted by or at the direction of a police officer.”

Oh and of course there will be a piece of tech to facilitate this. We know the average PoPo does not have the training to do it.

My problem with all of this is its Policing for Profit from beginning to end. —

* The cops want it so they can tack on an additional fine for texting while driving which is illegal in New York.

* The NY legislature wants it for the additional revenue it will generate.

* Cellebrite the maker of the device is pushing the bill so that they can make grant funded sales to the PoPo.

* The DEA will push this because it expands the field of probable cause to their benefit. Just have a NY trooper on the task force and you are golden.

We also know how this will end up out in the field too. It won’t just be limited to accidents. If you have a busted tail light the second or third question from the PoPo will be `do you own a cell phone`? Were I a car mfr I would be making Holy Hell over this bill. Any car built with in-dash mobile communications will become a target for being impounded. They will crush car sales on those accessories in vehicles harming their margins.

Tick, tick, tick, that much closer to CWII.

    Revenge is a dish best served on page 1A — — Like the copy editors know their job. I have seen enough errors over the years from that rag that disproves the fact that there are copy editors.

    DrudgeReport headliner. If NYT wants to save themselves they use Drudge as their sole copy editor. But they won’t….

    More WINNING. Bozlet #2 got his very first job last week. After a fruitless search the prior two summers, he’s now bussing tables at a semi-famous Chicago pizzeria. Why is this winning? Because it turns out that busboys has been a high turnover job, and it’s mostly Jose, Jorge and Jesus taking these jobs. In the past, they leave, and another Jose/Jorge/Jesus to fill the hole. Now suddenly, when Jose/Jorge/Jesus leaves, strangely another J/J/J is no longer waiting in the wings. Thus, the semi-famous pizza place has to go retro and hire 17 year old American high school kids. Coming to a restaurant near you soon – American kids bussing tables, washing dishes, and learning the joys of hard work and self-reliance…just like in the olden days.

    All that said, he’s making $9/hour, plus another $4/hour in his share of the tips. Less than a week on the job, and his GM told him that he’s the best busboy they’ve seen in years. He’s punctual, he’s friendly, he’s clean-cut…and he has a great work ethic. Bozlet #2 is on cloud nine, the restaurant has a good and conscientious worker, and one less J/J/J that the American taxpayer is picking up the food stamps and Medicaid tab on.

    JBoz –

    The groups Illegal immigrants have hurt the most are the young, the working poor and construction workers – eliminating jobs and reducing incomes.

    Not to mention if you get pulled over:
    O: “Do you have a cellphone on you”
    You: “No.”
    O: “Please step out of the car, oh and by the way do you consent to a search”
    You: “no”
    O: “That’s cool, but I’m going to search anyway because I believe you have a cell phone”.

    You know what else this is about. People not using the phones to record traffic stops, cop asks for phone… wipes your data, or stops you from streaming.

    Yes people should be raising holy hell over this, but let me guess….they aren’t because it’s not even being widely reported on…. instead… russia russia, trump tweet…russia russia russia .

    4 – That’s a double win! Congrats to Jr, that’s actually a good first job imho, will teach him a lot, not just hard work, but some level of customer service, and inevitably some exposure over the longer haul to other parts of the business.

    Agree! Wonderful story. And one you rarely heard in the recent past.

    A commenter at PowerLine nails it: “Trump’s middle finger s pretty much all that stands between the triumph of PC and middle America. It sure ain’t Ben Sasse and Paul Ryan.”

    JBoz, 4,

    Kudos to the youngn’ for becoming part of the tax base. Now if we can just chase off more of those J/J/J’s we would be in great shape.

    we watched this ad last night for the first time…though it is from April, it is suddenly a BIG DEAL. The Left, which has incited ACTUAL violence (including attempted assassination) is very very VERY upset with Dana Loesch, who is seen in the ad.

    The tone of the ad is a tad over the top, but listening to Dana explain it afterwards I found it to be less so. The scenes in the ad are ALL Left-wing violence…100%. What the ad does is say, in dark undertones, STOP IT.

    Us folks here, and elsewhere, have been saying that for a lonnnnng time. But when Conservatives say “Enough is ENOUGH!” it is somehow “inciting violence”. 👿

    The ad is embedded in the article below…worth watching.
