CSM: Watch where you point that camera

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Mxsmanic, May 23, 2005.

  1. True, but I commonly, "push the envelope" in cases like these. I routinely
    deposit my income taxes a week late, for example, because I know that it's
    impossible for the IRS to read 200 million poorly printed postmarks during
    the 6 weeks (or so) of April and May every year. Even though I do this, and
    loudly tell all my friends that I do this, I still see hundreds of people
    lined up at the post office just before midnight on the 15th of April every
    year.

    Unless and until they get computers that can recognize people from the
    crummy 525 line TV pictures they use today, I am not going to worry about
    big brother keeping track of me. And, although I read "1984" over 40 years
    ago, I do remember that I didn't worry too much about it then for the same
    reason. It was impossible with the technology they had then, because it's
    still impossible with the technology they have today, some 40 years later.

  2. We used to be amazed that in the old Soviet Union you could not take a
    picture of a bridge or a scene with a bridge. A teacher of mine had
    that happen to him in the Soviet Union, but a friendly army officer
    offered to take his camera, take the picture for him and give it back
    to him. THAT was allowed. Are we going the same way?

    Don't pick on the Patriot Act. Congresspeople don't read ANY of the

    non-discriminatory. They are ignorant of ALL the legislation they pass!

  4. Well, I'm waiting for Nikon to come out with a, "cell phone" that looks (and
    does) the same as my F5.......AAMOF, maybe if I took the "NIKON" logo off of
    my camera, and put a "Nokia" logo on it...........

    For a little while, maybe. But if trends continue, eventually the
    jobs will return once wages are sufficiently reduced.

    We needed advanced technology to implement Newspeak? That's been
    a staple of politicians and their parroting press for decades.

    Sure, as long as you don't use public hospitals, or make the rest of us
    bury you. And PLEASE don't blow your smoke my way.

    I recall snapping some bridge pictures a few years ago. I guess no one
    cared as I wasn't bothered. Or maybe no one saw.

    Really? "No." You don't get the difference?

    Wow.

  12. And where did I say a thing about making any laws? What did I write
    that suggested limiting your rights in any way?

    All in all, if I could be any animal, I would want to be
    a duck or a goose. They can fly, walk, and swim. Plus,
    there there is a certain satisfaction knowing that at the
    end of your life you will taste good with an orange sauce
    or, in the case of a goose, a chestnut stuffing.

  13. They did it in Russia and China and Germany without cameras and
    without computers.

  14. It depends on the bridge. And how many years. They have started
    implementing these laws since 9/11. That you don't know about it does
    not make it false.

    It also seems to depend on "where." It seems that this can't take pictures
    of anything "attitude" is not nearly so prevalent outside of the New York -
    New Jersey part of the country.

  16. If I do, it's because the liberals insist on it.....I never voted for taking
    care of everyone who comes along at the taxpayers expense, whether they are
    insured or not.....I happen to be well insured, and I am paying the premiums
    out of my own pocket. I do love the way the liberals steal the taxpayers
    money to take care of the uninsured, and then use that as an excuse to make
    laws controlling everyone's behavior.....It's just another indication of
    creeping socialism........

  17. Only with the cooperation of the people....I can't help it if people are
    wimps who are willing to jump into their government's pockets. I don't. And,
    in fact, I routinely break all unenforceable laws. - I consider it my duty
    as a good citizen..........."It is the responsibility, not the right, of
    good men to break bad laws." - Spencer Tracy, in Judgment at Nuremberg.
     
    William Graham, May 26, 2005
  18. And just what is it about, "just don't" that you don't understand? - If you
    are a true liberal, then the only laws you like better than ones that raise
    taxes are laws that force everyone to live the way that you do............
     
    William Graham, May 26, 2005
  19. This is what I dislike about knee-jerk conservatives/libertarians. I
    made a "medical" comment, about living longer by taking care of a few
    simple things, and they turn the subject to politics.
    Then I guess I am not a true liberal.

  20. For some odd notion of cooperation, sure.
    Would you drive the speed limit if the punishment was the imprisonment
    and torture of your family? Do you have a notion of what the Cultural
    Revolution was about?
    Now there is a good way to get a political education. BTW, did you
    know that Stanley Kramer was a classic liberal? Still want to quote
    his film?
