    There must have been some sort of enabling legislation to allow this or it couldn't have been done. The president can't "bypass Congress", unless he's already been given the right. FAIL

    There have already been two or three threads on this (yawn) issue. 96% of all cars manufactured have the goddamn things anyway. Yours probably does.

    BULLSHIT, that's just propaganda. If this and other measures are dictatorial, show me where the USSC has said so. I'm sure some have been brought before the court. What was the outcome?

    Some presidents are labeled dictators and some not, why the difference?

    As a former cop, let me discuss the GOOD of black boxes:

    When there is a DUI or fatal accident, and some scumbag with a suspended license or no license or no insurance flees the scene on foot...that box can tell how many passengers were in the car (cant say 'its my car but my buddy was driving not me'), and how much the driver of the car weighed (cant blame anyone except you for the accident).

    Lots of people will be held PERSONALLY ACCOUNTABLE for their actions behind the wheel thanks to this law.

    I think there are many people on this board who would do themselves a world of good by staying away from the radio for a while.
