You know that “check engine” light on your dashboard? What if instead of just telling you that the car’s computer has detected some fault with the emissions control system, it told the government – via roadside readers and satellite uplinks?
It’s called OBD III – and it’s right around the corner.
All new cars builtsince the mid-1990s have OBD II – or On Board Diagnostics II. This system standardized diagnostics by specifying that every new car come equipped with an OBD port (usually located somewhere near the driver’s side kick panel, on the underside of the dashboard) into which a technician (and your state’s emissions test station) can plug a scanner that downloads stored “trouble codes.” It is these trouble codes that also trigger the yellow “check engine” malfunction indicator light on your dash.
Mostly, these codes involve problems with the emissions control system rather than the engine itself. They’re often intermittent and minor. This is why it’s possible to continue driving the car with the “check engine” light on and everything still seems ok.
And it’s why the Power That Be want OBD III.
In the words of the Specialty Equipment Manufacturer’s Association (SEMA), the vast umbrella organization representing automotive industry parts and equipment suppliers, OBD III is “A program to minimize the delay between detection of an emissions malfunction by the OBD-II system and repair of the vehicle.”
And how will that be accomplished? Rather than merely store trouble codes, OBDII will immediately transmit those trouble codes to The Man – who will then proceed to first warn you (via letter or e-mail) to have the car repaired, stepping up to more aggressive enforcement if you fail to do so in the form of “citations… court and/or DMV penalty at next registration.”
It would also be possible to send the info directly to any nearby cop, who would then pull you over immediately – saving the government some time while making some more money off motorists.
This is not sci-fi. It’s impending reality. All the technical issues have been solved. Most new cars already come with GPS systems capable of receiving and sending data. It would be a simple matter to salt the roads with scanners capable of ID’ing every car that passes by, automatically establishing a communications link with your car’s computer. This would occur continuously and constantly, too – not just every once-in-a-while. OBD III as envisioned would literally make it possible to constantly monitor and record every vehicle so equipped, from the moment it left the driveway to the moment it returned at night.

Two things with this: is it racist and will cair get pissed at me for posting this? Or will the Detroit Lions be mad?
The coach had put together the perfect team for the Detroit Lions. The only thing that was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges and the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn’t find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl win.
Then one night while watching CNN he saw a war-zone scene in Afghanistan. In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Afghan Muslim soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away. KABOOM!
He threw another hand-grenade 75 yards away, right into a chimney. KA-BLOOEY!
Then he threw another at a passing car going 90 mph. BOOM! BULLS-EYE!
“I’ve got to get this guy!” the coach said to himself. “He has the perfect arm!”
So, he brings him to the States and teaches him the great game of football. And the Lions go on to win the Super Bowl.
The young Afghan is hailed as the great hero of football, and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man wants is to call his mother.
“Mom,” he says into the phone, “I just won the Super Bowl!”
“I don’t want to talk to you,” the old Muslim woman says. “You are not my son!”
“I don’t think you understand, Mother,” the young man pleads. “I’ve won one of the greatest sporting events in the world. I’m here among thousands of my adoring fans.”
“No! Let me tell you!” his mother retorts. “At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn’t get raped!”
The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says, “I will never forgive you for making us move to Detroit.”
(Bloomberg) — The U.S. and Israel are publicly disagreeing over timing for a potential attack on Iran’s disputed nuclear facilities, as that nation’s leader said it won’t back down.
The U.S. and Israel have a “significant analytic difference” over estimates of how close Iran is to shielding its nuclear program from attack, Aaron David Miller, a former Mideast peace negotiator in the Clinton administration, said today.
“There’s a growing concern — more than a concern — that the Israelis, in order to protect themselves, might launch a strike without approval, warning or even foreknowledge,” he said in an interview.
The differing views were underscored by public comments this week by senior Israeli and U.S. defense officials.
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said yesterday that Israel must consider conducting “an operation” before Iran reaches an “immunity zone,” referring to Iran’s goal of protecting its uranium enrichment and other nuclear operations by moving them to deep underground facilities such as one at Fordo, near the holy city of Qom.
“The world has no doubt that Iran’s nuclear program is steadily nearing readiness and is about to enter an immunity zone,” Barak said in an address to the annual Herzliya Conference at the Interdisciplinary Center campus north of Tel Aviv. “If the sanctions don’t achieve their goal of halting Iran’s nuclear weapons program, there will arise the need of weighing an operation,” Barak said.
The U.S. holds the view that “there is still time and space to pursue diplomacy” with Iran over its nuclear program, State Department spokesman Mark Toner said today in Washington. He added that the U.S. “is absolutely committed to preventing Iran from getting nuclear weapons.”
In Iran, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said today that his nation won’t abandon its nuclear efforts and warned that a strike against the nuclear program would damage U.S. interests in the Middle East “10 times over,” according to the Associated Press. He said, without providing details, that he would disclose a letter that he said President Barack Obamasent Iran’s leaders.
(my take is that obama wants Israel to hold off until after the elections)
A Marine squad was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist who was badly injured and unconscious.
On the opposite side of the road was an American Marine in a similar but less serious state. The Marine was conscious and alert, and as first aid was given to both men, the squad leader asked the injured Marine what had happened.
The Marine reported, “I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent. We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road. I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein was a miserable, lowlife scum bag who got what he deserved. He yelled back that Barack Obama is a lying, good-for-nothing, left wing Commie who isn’t even an American!”
So then I said that Osama Bin Laden dresses and acts like a frigid, mean-spirited lesbian! He retaliated by yelling, “Oh yeah? Well, so does Nancy Pelosi !”
“And, there we were, in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a truck hit us!”

Levin: Obama is cooking the books with unemployment. And more on this site to read. HERE.
Just like MSNBC, to grill the author of “The Obamas” without reading the book, or wanting to read the book, or even know what is in the book. Just make things up?
So last week, the democrats backing Obama (wonder how many are NOT backing him?) started attacking Mitt Romney for the Swiss bank account he had until recently. Guess they do not like republicans to have swiss bank accounts? So now here is the hyprocrisy of Obamatard and his regime.
Disgraced former MF Global CEO Jon Corzine also appears near the top of the list, raising more than $500K.
The list of the Obama campaign’s bundlers — or, they’re trying to rebrand them, “volunteer fundraisers,” contains the usual mix of celebrities and financiers, personal friends and professional operatives.
It also includes one bundler based in Geneva, Switzerland, Charles Adams, who heads the office of the law firm Akin Gump in the swiss capital. Adams raised more than $100,000 for Obama, according to the report.
When he and several colleagues joined the firm in 2010, Akin Gump touted the group’s expertise in “tax optimization for multinational corporates and high-net-worth individuals.”
Adams, who is a specialist in international arbitration, not tax law, is quoted saying: “We look forward to bringing our capabilities and standards to bear in international arbitration, international tax planning, and Swiss corporate and commercial law to benefit the firm’s world-class client base.”
Obama’s bundlers have another Swiss banking connection: Robert Wolf, who heads the U.S. office of the Zurich- and Basel-based UBS, raised between $50,000 and $100,000.
Obama’s likely rival, Mitt Romney, has come under fire from Obama aide David Axelrod and others for keeping his money in a Swiss bank.
(message from Obama? you can not have money in swiss banks unless you donate a bunch of money to me)
Terror-linked CAIR silences Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin (Ret) for telling the truth about Islam…
HAMAS-sugar daddy CAIR (The Council on American-Islamic Relations), a named unindicted co-conspirator entity in the Holy Land Foundation terror financing convictions, announced that it had successfully prevented retired Lieutenant General William G. “Jerry” Boykin from speaking at an upcoming prayer breakfast at the US Military Academy at West Point.
CAIR couldn’t do this on its own, you know they had the backing of the Muslim-in-Chief.
(do read this blog often to keep up with islamic killers and more. this blog was originally on wordpress.com, but the liberal assholes at wordpress shut them down because cair wanted them to do so. then while waiting, they temporarily got a domain and finally today got their old domain back)
This Is Real and This Is SCARY…….
“What is going to happen if the economy totally falls to pieces and our city centers descend into anarchy like we saw in New Orleans during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina?”
“The population of Detroit is less than half of what it used to be. Over the past few decades people have left in droves, and large sections of the city are in an advanced state of decay.”
Is this coming to other major cities…???
GO READ THE REST… IT’s “EYE OPENING” and you won’t see it on the news.
Okay, here it is from the most liberal of liberal states. Land of the far out people, the liberals who back Obama.
California will run out of cash by early March if the state does not take swift action to find $3.3 billion through payment delays and borrowing, according to a letter state Controller John Chiang sent to state lawmakers today.
The announcement is surprising since lawmakers previously believed the state had enough cash to last through the fiscal year that ends in June.
But Chiang said additional cash management solutions are needed because state tax revenues are $2.6 billion less than what Gov. Jerry Brown and state lawmakers assumed in their optimistic budget last year. Meanwhile, Chiang said, the state is spending $2.6 billion more than state leaders planned on.
Last week, I noted that Obama turned his back not just on Arizona’s Governor Jan Brewer, but also on the laws of the State of Georgia. I closed my column, “Georgia Ballot Challenge: Obama Walks on By,” with the observation: “And most of the media has followed along right behind him.”
At the time, I had just witnessed an historic hearing that actually discussed the eligibility of the sitting president of the United States to run for a second term. The president had been subpoenaed to appear, and instead of his attorney respectfully following protocol to have that subpoena recalled, both Obama and his attorney, Michael Jablonski, simply failed to show up at all or offer any defense whatsoever.
Isn’t there a headline in there somewhere?
The hearing proceeded as planned, even though the table for the defense was empty. [snip]
When the hearing ended, the media in attendance almost literally pounced on Taitz … After the reporters finished letting Taitz feel the full extent of their contempt for both her and the entire morning’s event, they packed up to leave.
I walked up to one particular reporter from one of the prominent mainstream entities, noting that he seemed frustrated that he didn’t get a clear answer from Taitz to one of his questions, and I informed him that I did know the exact answer, if he’d like to hear more about it. He said no, he didn’t. I asked then, wasn’t he a reporter, and why did he ask the question if he didn’t want the answer? And as I was speaking, he turned and walked away from me.
The same thing happened with another reporter from another major network. He had asked Taitz why no one cared that there were past presidents who had fathers not born in the country. I explained to him that it was not the place of birth of the presidents’ fathers that was the issue, but rather the status of their citizenship at the time of their sons’ births. The reporter scoffed and told me that that was just my opinion, but when I attempted to inform him that it was also the opinion of the Supreme Court, he turned and walked away from me while I was in mid-sentence.
Does this behavior seem familiar? [snip]
As Sunny of Sunny TV points out in this hilarious but uncomfortably true video*, “Tyranny is as Tyranny Does”; “[l]et’s just hope the next President is just as benevolent as Obama because they could really use that power for bad.” At the end of the clip, as Sunny pretends she is Obama, issuing orders right and left, she points to her crown and says: “This makes me in charge.” As Teri O’Brien noted in her interview discussing Obama’s penchant for walking away from those with whom he disagrees, “[g]ods don’t debate. They issue decrees.”
Attorney Irion, in this follow-up letter from his Liberty Legal Foundation, pointed out: “Yesterday President Obama completely ignored a court subpoena, and the world shrugged.”

Just show this to any muslim you know. You know, those damn dog haters!
A Dutch Muslim politician has called for a ban on dogs in The Hague, the third-largest city in the Netherlands.
Islamic legal tradition holds that dogs are “unclean” animals
And yet he, along with the rest of the left, ignores the very real violence from Occupy Wall Street.
WASHINGTON — Comparisons of the Tea Party movement to Occupy Wall Street have become a political parlor game over the past six months, but MSNBC host Chris Matthews believes there really is no contest.
Matthews told WMAL’s Morning Majority on Tuesday that the behavior of conservatives at Congressional Health Care Townhall meetings in the summer of 2009 — during the early days of the Tea Party movement — reached a level of hatred unmatched in recent times.
“I saw those people spitting on Congressmen, I saw them yelling at them. I saw a lot of anger in the room,” recalled Matthews, who says he believes the harsh rhetoric of those meetings reflected an actual personal hatred of President Obama.
“Actually, ad hominem, they hated the guy. Why do you think we have a Secret Service?”, he asked. “If you don’t think there was an honest fear of violence in that very hot period of around 2010, it was real,” he insisted. “I think there was a real fear on the part of security people that it might get out of hand,” he added.
As far as Matthews is concerned, the rancor has continued through the Obama presidency.
“There is a real level of national hatred of the president that I hadn’t seen before, certainly not under Clinton, or under Dubya,” he said. “The hatred, the Hitler mustaches, all that stuff. I haven’t seen that before,” he insisted.
She is just saying what bullshit her boss says for her to spout off. If she really believes what she says? Then she has finally licked at the ass of the islamic one time too many.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano praised President Barack Obama’s administration for taking the “most serious” and “sustained actions” to secure the border in U.S. history.
“The Obama administration has undertaken the most serious and sustained actions to secure our borders in our nation’s history. And it is clear from every measure we currently have that this approach is working,” she said in her second annual “State of America’s Homeland Security” address Monday at the National Press Club.
Her remarks come after the Obama administration announced that it will begin reducing the number of National Guard troops on the U.S.-Mexico border.
From MSNBC, who calls every republican and white guy a racist (unless they happen to be liberal, democrat, obama sucker):
“Chuck, a lot of the counties in the Panhandle, in north Florida, the cracker counties, if you will . . . more resemble Georgia and Alabama than they do Florida.”
(now if that is not so freaking racist!@!!!)
(ABC News) — A man from Uzbekistan that the United States and the United Nations helped relocate to Colorado now faces a terrorism charge.
Jamshid Muhtorov opposed his home country’s dictator following a 2005 massacre, endured a brutal detention, and saw his sister arrested on a false murder charge. The 35-year-old fled his country by night dressed as a woman, and the U.S. and the U.N. helped bring him to Aurora in 2007.
Now, he’s accused of providing material support and attempting to provide material support to the Islamic Jihad Union. The violent group opposes the Uzbek government and has been designated a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department.
Federal authorities say the Islamic Jihad Union has claimed responsibility for attacks on coalition forces in Afghanistan, including a March 2008 suicide attack on a U.S. base. The group is also blamed for carrying out simultaneous suicide bombings of the U.S. and Israeli embassies and a prosecutor’s office in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
“It is a crime, and has been a crime for many years, to provide material support for a designated terrorist organization, the IJU,” said Dean Boyd, spokesman for the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington. “Our job is to enforce the law.”
The FBI said Muhtorov communicated with a contact with the IJU by email using code words, asking to be invited to the “wedding.” He also told the contact that he was “ready for any task, even with the risk of dying,” the FBI said.
(why our country should not let any freaking ass raghead from any country into our borders! if muslim or muslim loving asshole, sorry but you can not come into the USA for any reason. brand new law by our new patriotic president and congress.)
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A haz-mat crew with the Charlotte Fire Department was called to 600 East Trade Street, the site of the Occupy Charlotte movement, on Tuesday morning.
City workers who had been cleaning the area noticed toilet paper on top of a storm water grate that drains into a nearby creek. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police and city officials believe some protesters have been using the drain as a toilet.
“We’re looking at the environmental impact on the stream down there with the wildlife, and things like that,” said Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Dulin.
“Plus the water goes downstream for other people to drink further down. But again, we’re just trying to cover all our bases, and make sure that if there is any type of environment impact, that we’re able to identify that and then correct that and make sure there is no further environmental impact downstream,” he added.
About four protesters watched as haz-mat crews scooped debris into five containers for testing. Eric Dow, who has been on the site since October 2011, says he never saw anyone using the drain as a toilet. He says new protesters are told where the closest public restrooms are.
(see, this shitting occupiers, regardless of where the are occupying and regardless of who they are, think they can just shit and piss anywhere they please. arrest them all, deport them all, to north korea or yemen)
WASHINGTON – House Republicans are expanding their probe into the Obama administration’s energy programs, investigating $500 million in green job training grants that placed just 10% of trainees in jobs, according to a government report.
The program’s goal was to train 124,893 people and put 79,854 in jobs. But 17 months later, 52,762 were trained and 8,035, or roughly 1 in 10, had jobs. Those numbers come from an audit by the Department of Labor’s inspector general, which recommended that the administration end the program and return unspent money.
President Obama has made green jobs a cornerstone of his economic agenda. In his first 2012 campaign ad this month, he said clean energy industries created 2.7 million jobs and were “expanding rapidly.” But Republicans have pounced on failures, such as the bankruptcy of Solyndra, a solar panel maker backed with a Department of Energy loan guarantee.
Citing what he calls “abysmal results” in the job training program, House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., is demanding answers about how the Department of Labor awarded the grants, which were funded out of the 2009 stimulus bill.
(obama the failure guy)
Wow! I would never accept money that some dumbass pulled out of his/her panties. But this store must have a real big problem to put this sign up!
