Agenda 21 Puts Gov GPS Trackers in Every SF CarSubmitted by McWilly on Thu, 07/19/2012 - 14:32
My feelings on San Francisco and the people that live there as a whole aren’t that positive and the latest news out of “The City” (as the self-important populace likes to call it) makes me even less fond of it. The UN’s ridiculous Agenda 21 plan has reared its ugly head in that den of blind, liberal thought. Agenda 21, if you are not familiar is a set of standards for “global sustainability” by the new “global partnership” that governments are to create policy for on their own to achieve, which range from combating poverty and helping emerging countries economically to managing sewage waste. Basically, they want us all to be one big happy family, holding hands and singing kumbiah by the fire.
Many of the goals set would have devastating impact on personal liberty and economy, thus there is a large backlash against it from the libertarian community. One such goal is protecting the atmosphere, and while our national government can’t possibly pass laws that would require every American to install a GPS tracking device in their car (yet), local governments can. And they can tax for every mile driven. That is exactly what is being brought to the table in San Francisco.
