    I was away enjoying myself on the beach in Florida for a little vacation this past week. I reconnected with an old friend and we started talking about the cash for clunkers program. I told my friend that the government will run out of money well before the ending of the program in November. He totally agreed and added that there are only about 20,700 deals left, which divided out gives each dealer only 14 cars to sell under this program. Per my math its only 11 but what’s a few cars between friends, right? The next morning, I wake up and flip on the news like always and the first thing on CNN was that the cash for clunkers was out of money. Now let me ask something. How does, two guys having a few beers on the beach know that this program will run out of money four months before the end of the program? Even a better question is why didn’t our government know? I can only assume that our Congress didn’t read the cash for clunkers bill or they can’t do simple math.

    When I got back to my desk this morning a follower of our blog here at BorderlineIQ.com sent me an email with this Glen Beck video. You might not care for Beck, but this was very disturbing and was something you need to watch.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWs12ccbOiE]YouTube - Glenn Beck: Cars.gov allows government to takeover your computer[/ame]

    I have read some other blogs that all seem to bash on Glen Beck for being a conspiracy theorist. Perhaps a little! What if I bought a car from a dealer and the government was leaching all of the information about me and family, through the loan or purchase documents? I should be able to expect some level of privacy when doing a transaction with my local dealer, right?

    We are protected by the Electronic Communication Privacy Act of 1986 and the Fourth Amendment the last time I checked. The ECPA Act title 1 protects our communication from the government via wire, oral and electronic communications while in transit. Title 2 protects us by protecting our stored information, such as emails, stored written documents and so on. As I understand it, you can only give up your constitutional rights through a judge in the court of law. So can an online agreement give our government free access to our information? This kind of reminds me of the Obama healthcare plan. With the healthcare plan Obama wants to store all of your medical records in a centralized database. Is big brother gathering information about you?

    For you Bush bashers, I need to hear you now!! This is President George Bush and the Patriot Act all over again.

    The dealers accept this agreement and only after the program was about out of money did the government change the wording. Will the government retroactive this new wording or continue on holding the rights to all the computers that accepted his agreement?

    This is all about big brother building a database, which is exactly why I’m against my medical records being housed by our government. It’s none of their damn business.

    Word to the wise, protect your information.

    If I was Big Brother I would just offer Glenn as much free coke and booze as he could handle but it looks like Fox News knows how to keep him happy.

    What's wrong?

    You can't offer an intelligent counter argument? Oops.... sorry I forgot who I was talking to....nevermind.

    But really why bother responding at all?

    Thanks for that response. I had a hundred dollar bet that you'd come back with something stupid, and you did. So again thanks.

    When Beck cries like an 11 year old girl for ratings I wonder if it's the women or the men in his audience who feel for him?

    No kidding, that is really something.
    There is no limit to the audacity of the government.
    I dont think it matters which side of the isle you are on,
    or maybe it does.

    No Nancy I didn't bet myself. But now we see how your bets are made.

    I think it's cute that you have a crush on Beck.
