13. I live in a suburb of NYC and watch the local news out of the city, and in the scroll on the bottom

of the screen this morning, they mentioned this. It gets me sick to my stomach. I'm from the city originally and to think that it has come to this.

They are getting us used to living in a prison society, plain and clear. Even my son's high school. You need to be buzzed in to get inside. In reality, they buzz everyone in, but it gets the students used to being locked in.

I also want to add on that in the city they are making plans for "congestion pricing", which means if you drive during the week in certain areas of the city, you have to pay a fee. It is being floated as a way of easing air pollution in the city BUT I don't know about know, but the original plan was to PHOTOGRAPH everyone's license plate in order to send them the bill. Hello Big Brother!
