Look up royal prerogative. Administrations, legislatures and courts exempt themselves from many of the laws that they impose on the serfs.
How so? Politicians lying is protected speech.
Is something like this what you had in mind?
Family members? I wonder how that would go over with adult children.
"Son. I need to turn over your passwords in order to apply as Clinton's VP."
"Fuck you, dad. By the way, I'm voting for Trump."
People have passwords for things other than their job. Hopefully, they don't use the same one for their DoD job and Slashdot.
I have 110 uid/passwords for various accounts (everything from banking to Netflix) stored safely (encrypted, pass-phrase protected) on a portable device.
I create a Twitter account expressly for this purpose. I send Mr Johnson my password. I now have deniability for anything else done using this account (as long as I obfuscate other identifying details such as my IP).
I'm coming for you!
None of this matters. If you are going through the border, they can refuse you entry if you don't comply.
Why put up with extra NOx
Why indeed. NOx limits were crafted to kill off high performance engines (high efficiency, high power output per liter of fuel, less HC, CO2) by the car haters. Why worry at all about NOx when the automobile sources are down in the noise level compared to background NOx levels?
Capitalism -- it works, as long as government is prepared to stand behind the capitalists with a big enough stick.
In this country, capitalists stand behind government. Very close. And that thing isn't a stick.
Yeah. Milk gives me gas too.
I take it you have never worked in tech for any branch or part of the government.
I have. And it's OK until consultants and private contractors smell a profit opportunity. They undermine the gov't agency until it can neither do the work itself or properly oversee the contractors. Look at NASA (to a certain degree) and the FAA (completely pwned by industry).
It is the worse possible solution for the government to own and operate a communications network.
Often stated but never proven.
When it is not necessary to make a decision, it is necessary not to make a decision.
