    New Street Lights To Have “Homeland Security” Applications
    High-tech system to include speakers, video surveillance, emergency alerts

    This should make everyone feel safer:
    Intellistreets, only 27 years late. Where will it end? :paranoid:

    I would say it's more like "yutes run amok"

    Government spending run amok. We give the government funds (or let them print it) so they can abuse us.

    Technology is amoral, judge the people who use it.

    Can we finally drop the pretense that the DHS is not Stasi reincarnate?

    While I hate totalitarians, this is a response to an issue that is an 800 lb gorilla that no one wants to discuss because you might get called un~nice names, so most people prefer this

    No delusions about what we are; who our owners are; just nothing can be done about it at this point. Young people can look forward to a life of being subservient, fearful slaves handed crumbs in exchange for obedience in the USSA while the .05% live like kings. The time to object has long passed and people get the government they deserve.

    Watched a Netflix DVD last night called Inside Job. No it isn't 9/11, it is about what the banking elite crowd did in 2008 to the present. Amazing really. The same exact master criminals are standing side by side with our puppet in charge to this day. Just beyond belief that these con men have taken over without fear of any interference from the media or the law. Instead of jail time they get tens of millions of dollars in bonuses, literal fleets of planes and yachts, and fancy titles like "Treasury Secretary" and "Federal Reserve Chairman." Rant over, no point. Just know when you are pushing your bum cart around under a surveillance camera who screwed you over.

    Noisy,you should just make that your signature so you don't have to retype it for every thread
    Just sayin'

    But I love the guy's voice in the video. How can it be bad with that soothing voice and music?
    He talks about the auto lighting and slips the "data collection" in there like it's nothing

    Listen to the voice and all will be well

    Thanks for the anxiety attack, Rufus! lol.

    When I read the article in the link and watched the video all I could think of was this movie, lol. Looks like intellistreets stole the idea from a early 90's stallone movie.
    Demolition Man - Verbal Violation (bad language)

    Edit: FYI, only first minute of video is relevant, the rest is just funny.
