Big Brother Government Motors is Watching You

Even if you aren't an OnStar customer, they may be watching you. Probe urged as OnStar is watching even former users (Suddenly that stuff circulating last week about how to disconnect OnStar at the source, makes more sense.)
"(OnStar) has recently made dramatic changes to its privacy policy that I find alarming," Schumer said in a letter to the chairman of the FTC. "I am concerned that OnStar may be abusing the consumer data -- including sensitive information like vehicle location and speed -- to which it has access."

[Senator Charles] Schumer called the tracking "one of the most brazen invasions of privacy in recent memory." Senators Al Franken and Christopher Coons, both Democrats, sent a letter to OnStar last week saying that the company's actions "appear to violate basic principles of privacy and fairness."
So tell me again why you would want to drive a GM vehicle?

I'm surprised it's those senators. Schumer? As in "when the Schumer hits the fan"? Mr. Hasn't-been-funny-since-1979 Franken got one right?
