    Govt seeks permission to limit communication

    Sorry, I don't know how to post the body of the article here but link is below. Gov't seeks permission to jam cell signals. Scares the crap out of me when we continue to allow the government to take away our rights and liberties for "our protection."

    Police agencies seek to jam cell signals - Washington Post- msnbc.com

    Long article to post anyway. It doesn't really surprise me, and the government has had this ability for years. All devices that recieve and transmit any signal must by law not transmit any interference, and must accept any interference. GPS, cell phones, wireless internet...just about anything can have service denied. I don't like it, but there's not much to be done about it. I see it the same as taking away guns to "protect america"...take away communications...same thing. It's wrong.

    Exactly my point. Communication and guns go hand in hand. One doesn't do very well without the other.

    First thing to do is to knock out the communication. That's one thing that bothers me about how the attempted overthrow of Gorbochav (sp?) by the KBG. These pros left all the communication lines open. This makes no sense to me, they left the resistance coordinate. To this day I still don't understand why.

    Destroying communication takes away the ability to organize. Take away the ability to organize and you will have an easy defeat. Just who and what are they trying to defeat is the scary part.

    This is why we are switching to digital. Digital can be interupted and listened into more easily than analog.

    All else aside…..

    I can just imagine the law suite when this kind of tactic prevents somebody from completing an emergency phone call.

    At that point it won't matter.

    When Big Brother wants to be able to limit your means of communication, and wants you to be OK with it, that is a BIG red flag. But, sadly, most of the Sheeple will just think it is the benevolent Government making things "safer" for them.

    They will all be led to slaughter with stupid smiles on their faces sure that this is in their best interests.

    A civilian can actually buy and own a cellular jammer of varying strength. It's just very illegal to actually use it.

    The Secret Service already uses such devices, so if Cadillac One ever passes you by one day, don't expect to be able to pull out your phone and call up your buddies to tell them who you just saw!

    The justification is to try to defeat cellphone-detonated devices. However, I don't know how the secret service (SS?) uses their phones while jamming everyone else's. Maybe they have some propitiary frequencies they use.

    And, would such jamming affect laser or infrared communications devices? Oh, the life of the S.S. must be challenging, indeed.

    I don't care how you justify it, I read the article. The point is giving up freedoms in the name of "being safe." And when the government has the power to do such things, how do we know it is only used as "justified?" We have our second ammendment to protect ourselves from a tyranous government and the ability to communicate is just as important.
