Also, eye under your car! The good ol' Ninth Circus says it's oooooo-tay if Agents of The Gummint stick a GPS-based tracking device under your own car parked in your own driveway (or wherever), cos you didn't have any expectation of privacy there and you soooo don't when you are out driving on your presumptively-lawful occasions, oh, hells no.
Chap at the link has a few suggestions on what you can do with government property abandoned upon your own personal vehicle. Sadly, "Go stuff it, slathered with high-grade hot sauce and naptha, up the distal sphincter of the chief officer of whatever Arm of the Supposed Law had it stuck on your ride" is not on the list; he's way nicer and more clever than the likes of me.
D'ye suppose we can convince some cop-like agency (or C13\/eR HaXX0RZ) t'stick widgets on the private cars of the august Juutfruices of the United States Ninth Circuit Court of Nonsense, an' post live and detailed tracking information on the Whirled Wide Web? For their own good, I mean; so peoples can tell where they are in case of a flat tire or civil unrest or anything. I mean, shuckies, what if one of them were about to buy dope and/or whores by mistake or something? Those poor, poor fellers need our love and understanding an' helpfulness. And to be tracked like bugs, prisoners or Lindsay Lohan, 24/7/365. But not in a bad way. Heck, no.
Like Tam says, George Orwell was Rebbecca of Sunnybrook Farm. Number One Chief Justice In Charge Kozinski, WTF? Officer Krupke?
