Drivers will within 10 years face inflated insurance premiums – or even be forced off the road – unless they allow their driving to be monitored at all times by tracking technology.

A number of major insurers are launching hi-tech products this year that will monitor driving data such as the number of journeys, time of day the car is used and behaviour such as speed and braking.

I can see this happening. Easily. gaah.gif

The potential is frightening. Over the speed limit? Automatic fine. And so on.

Totalitarian much? damned.gif Will be a blast on a two lane state highway. Getting behind some old man doing 40 in a 55 and the way traffic is, you gotta' punch it up to 70 or so for a few seconds to safely get around him...
yeah.
So do you stay behind him and drive 40 mph for 200 miles, or do you pay big money to pass.
This shït is ridiculous.

That's why you should always carry around an extra $50 bill in your wallet. So the cop can buy some donuts. chuckle.gif

The one and only reason why each and every one of these fabricated laws even exist is to suck evermore money out of as many people as possible and its so sad and true that they spend our entire lives persecuting and punishing us if we dont willingly and robotically comply with their sinister by demons be greed driven megalomania and denial...

You've got a very good point.

Dr. Mercola has an article about the Monarch butterfly. In California the count is down 80% in the last 15 years.

Plus he writes this:

"In 1996, migrating monarchs covered 45 acres of forest in central Mexico, each acre holding an estimated 25 million butterflies.2 In December 2013, the butterflies covered a mere 1.5 acres."

That's a 30 fold shrinkage.

Honey bees are also collapsing to nearly unsustainable levels.

When our food becomes unaffordable or nonexistent, the natives could become restless or listless 'til death.
