Most freeways (autobahn equivalent) in the US have a speed limit of 65 or 70 mph. 55 only happens in large urban areas and on the two lane highways.

Government agents looking to score a big payout are not exactly independent now, are they?
How can one claim to "not use Facebook" while visiting Facebook pages?
No, not all contexts. The contexts where it is not unreasonable are the contexts where the person losing property is actually charged and convicted of a crime. you know, the case where civil forfeiture does not need to be used because criminal law is in play.
The 4th amendment was put in place mainly to stop stuff like civil forfeiture from happening.
Not really. It would not be a 4th amendment violation because you would be agreeing to have it installed as a condition of having your car registered which we have already agreed, society as a whole, is not a violation of any rights. This is much clearer an issue than we can force you to buy health insurance or tax you for not doing so because your not having insurance might negatively affect interstate commerce.
I recommend he quit lying about how crappy things are but that's just my opinion.
And I work with 30-40 devs using VS and sql server and we've had less than five SSD failures in 3 years. One of us isn't telling the truth.
Yes, it has. That is why private clubs can remain private clubs.
Have you ever asked yourself exactly which of your rights are worth preserving.
Saying that we have rights only until we interact with society is basically saying we have no rights.
True, but the c# compiler allows the same thing, declaring without initializing and then initializing in an if-else statement, but complains if you never get around to setting a value in before you try to get a value out.
It is a mixture. What I found quite hilarious is that the Democrats were suing the Republicans in one State for having closed their primary while the Democrats were closing their primaries in other States.
"If [I] want it to be disallowed to require [me] to give [my] first amendment right by government fiat...?"
The Constitution of the United States of America says that it is disallowed and the Supreme Court has affirmed that on many occasions. It is not simply a matter of what I want, it is pretty much a matter of settled law. If all you damn lefties would just understand that the 1st amendment exists and is settled law and stop foaming at the mouth every time some teenager utters something about their favorite deity, the whole country might understand this. Students do not lose their 1st amendment rights simply because they choose to attend a public school. Get over it.
If you can show me anywhere in the Constitution where it clearly defines your right to ask the government to forcibly take my property, valuables and wealth and give it to you just because you don't want to work, I would be very grateful.
By search, I didn't mean walk in and look around, I meant actually search by opening drawers and going behind the counter and into offices where the general public is not allowed. That type of searching does require a search warrant, exactly as you stated.
And yes, constitutional scholars (including SCOTUS, look it up - it happened in 1958 and at other times as well) have said that the 1st amendment does embody a right to associate as teh right to express frequently requires joining forces with like-minded individuals. This right of association is not unique to the US. Please enlighten yourself and don't be so willing to give up your rights just because you think doing so makes you safe from the monsters.
Yes, the national frat is private business. The University is not private business; it is a state school.
Oh, so an authority figure said that those idiots have no rights so they have no rights? Welcome to the old (and new?) USSR/Russia!
