I'm unsure, possibly Benjamin Franklin, said that once we begin giving up our liberties in the name of safety is the day democracy begins to die. Okay, so the words aren't 100% and I'm unsure who is "quoted",but we are headed in that direction. Im notcomfortable with camera etc4 poss future threat

Because we need it to assist with catching the criminals to keep our community safer. Witnesses are afraid to come forward, and the police are short handed.

The govt has facial recognition of all the domestic terrorists in Portland Or. but won't prosecute them, but will go after innocent mothers at school board meetings. Go figure, you may be the next one arrested. Your own words from three months ago. "Privacy concerns and government over reach!" LGB

I am more worried about being tracked and spied on by my cell phone. Save some of your COVID masks, they are worthless at preventing COVID but might help protect you against facial recognition surveillance at the upcoming anti-gov protests. Leave your phone at home when going to protests.

Yes for a short time, but it means other problems will escalate. The economy is in the toilet. It will get much worse.

You are absolutely right. I voted no because the falling prices signal weakness in the economy and much harder times coming. The economy is not going to bounce back from $8T of printed money dumped into it - COVID panic - by foolish politicians.

No

The national average price of gas was $2.39 when Biden took office. Dems have been trying to kill fossil fuels for decades. Now they crow about slightly less expensive gas - robbing SPR to do it. Have you seen your natural gas bill lately? Way up. Hard times coming. Prepare now. FJB

This is just one piece of the economic puzzle, and not indicative of future results for our wallets. Most of us have adjusted to the higher fuel prices by curtailing fueling up when we can avoid it, but the lower fuel costs still don't offset the still-rising cost of groceries. Or natural gas.

Prices will go back up soon. Meanwhile, we still enjoy the lowest gas prices on the planet.
