    NJlawmaker: criminalize taking pix of power plants

    From the LF list:

    "The New Jersey state Senate Law and Public Safety Committee is expected to discuss a bill today which would make it a crime -- punishable by up to 18 months in jail -- to photograph, videotape or otherwise record for an extended period of time a power generation, waste treatment, public sewage, water treatment, public water, nuclear or flammable liquid storage facility, as well as any airport in the state."

    If I was still living back in the tri-state area, I would have called him a schmuck.

    More and more, I'm convinced we live in the United States of Paranoia. I'm sick and tired of big brother.

    There is one weapon that is highly effective against these numpties otherwise known as lawmakers. That weapon is threat of defeat in the next election. I think it would be a good idea to name and shame every single lawmaker who tries to suppoert a bill like this and suggest that people might like to vote them out of office for their mindless behaviour.

    Opponents of the bill said it "makes no sense" and is "awful."
    The opponents are right.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    I know such laws are fairly common in military dictatorships. For example, Iraq under Saddam had tight restrictions on where photos could be taken, as did the Soviet Union. Up until now, I did not think New Jersey was in the same category.

    At the close of the Constitutional Convention, a woman asked Benjamin Franklin what type of government the Constitution was bringing into existence. Franklin replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

    The prisons in NJ are filled with crooks already. Where are they going to keep the "convicted" photogarphers? Transfer them to exile island?

    Most likely the incarceration would be exile to the most splendid place on earth, with all your cameras...and NO FILM!
