    My DOCTOR the car.

    I'm tellin' yas...most currently well paid HC professions are going to become as redundant as locomotive firetenders are now, in your children''s lifetimes, folks.

    I can easily see a world divided into two classes.

    People who OWN the robots, and the economically unviable people who are running for their lives from those robots.

    Will bad words offend the delicate nature of these sissy cars? Imagine taking one of these cars on a fishing trip. Between the beer, the smoke, the body odor and the fish guts, the car computer will need post traumatic stress counseling.

    Just don't take it on a hunting trip.

    Guns? A Toyota Hilux?

    Sounds like an insurgency

    Did I mention farts? Imagine a delicate high tech computer trying to monitor the atmospheric contents of the car when confronted with a beer/pizza fart rendition? It's enough to send the "check engine" light into a blinking frenzy. You can get the car back in civilized condition with about two hundred quarters in a car wash and a couple of deodorize hanging things but I fear the sissy computer will never be the same.

    These are all lies designed to get you to accept the system. And when you do it won't be used to "protect you", it will be used to enslave you.

    Sometime in the near future the government will have total control over your automobile and you will have to ask permission to use it. And you will have happily given them the green light. You think I'm fuckin' jokin'? I'm serious!

    "Sorry, air quality is poor today so we are restricting use of automobiles".
    Or you'll get a notice in the mail: "We see from our records that you exceeded the speed limit of 35 mph in a housing area. We are issuing a citation which may be paid online through...blah blah blah".

    You gotta' fight this shit now!

    At least Ford is not making it mandatory that you buy its product, is it? Maybe if Ford had been heard decades ago, then we will not be in nations killing and be killed for oil for cars!
