I am a bit surprised how nonchalant some people are about rights to drive and rights to privacy. I usually focus on responsibilities but I may have to put more effort into protecting rights too.

IMO, unfortunately this is true. While this reality is not all bad, it has been abused time and time again to keep citizens in line with the status quo with threats of prosecution, prison, and death. Those benefitting the most from the status quo want to keep it that way, and anyone who rocks the boat can be easily targeted through the legal system put into place by those who profit most. Most of the time as far as I know, those on the receiving end are getting their just desserts, but that is not always the case. EG, the laws protecting the monopoly of the AMA and big pharma are abusive to the nth degree. Some of those laws are preventing real healing methodologies from being practiced, while the public gets screwed again and again. I should have never gotten started on this....now I'm prone to being pissed off about it for the rest of the day!

Back to the topic at hand....just about time to get in my car and exercise the privelege of driving over to Golds Gym to burn off some of my aggravation!
