If the following makes you feel like you’ve just entered the Twilight Zone, welcome to the Obamanation.
Folks who are interested applying to the “Cash for Clunkers” program are directed to a federal government website, cars.gov. If they want to participate, their dealer fills out an application and, in order to submit it, has to go through the usual agreement to the site’s terms and conditions. Or are they really the usual “terms and conditions”?
When it involves the Obama administration, the sad truth is that it’s a scam designed to take something away from you. In this case, when you’re a car dealer, it’s your privacy.
The dealer user agreement reads, in part:
“This application provides access to the DoT CARS system. When logged on to the CARS system, your computer is considered a Federal computer system and is the property of the U.S. Government.
Any or all uses of this system and all files on this system may be intercepted, monitored, recorded, copied, audited, inspected, and disclosed to authorized CARS, DoT, and law enforcement personnel, as well as authorized officials of other agencies, both domestic and foreign.”
What this means is that EVERYTHING on that computer immediately becomes fair game to the Feds. Including customer information. And leaving the website won’t stop them. Through the use of what is commonly known as “malware” (malicious software programs deliberately placed on a computer, normally to steal information) and those inevitable tracking cookies, the government can continue to monitor all activities until their code is found and wiped off your system.
‘Tis truly a nasty way to gather information about American citizens, but unfortunately, it’s legal.
Thanks to Glenn Beck for exposing this.
