Cowracer (love your name btw) *so* many things going on these days are unconstitutional, but yet they continue.
No, I won't be going to a state that won't allow me to modify something that IS MINE.
The "voluntary" DNA sample taking in TX scares me too. Texas is the last state I'd expect that to happen.
One lady stated that she was told it was voluntary, but when she declined and tried to drive through they wouldn't allow it, and "herded" her into the parking area instead. Keep in mind these weren't police, but were people who had "contracted" to do this. NO authority whatsoever.
You do know there are "passive breathalizers" these days? The cop has it on his person with his "equipment", and as soon as you roll your window down it will pick up alcohol. Think that's constitutional?
And those who volunteered for the breathalyzer at that stop, guess what? on that disposable mouthpiece they got their DNA.
Yes, I'm a radical, married to a man who is even more radical, about our constitutional rights and privacy. We don't write checks, for *anything* because the information required is *none of their business*.
And I don't accept the "yeah you must have something to hide if you don't want to volunteer your DNA". No, I don't have anything to hide and everything to lose...my privacy and my constitutional rights...i.e. God *given* rights.
Hmm, just had a thought; does this law apply to non motorized vehicles? There was a thread a few weeks back about a compartment mod for a certain purpose.
