A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

Orwell, here we come

This ad scares the bejezus out of me, and I do not even live in Pennsylvania...

Certainly the technology is available to achieve (?) this type of monitoring, but have we devolved to this level? The Nanny State verges on the Orwellian nightmare. In one word, frightening. I wonder: Did anyone with authority in Pennsylvania  think through all the implications of this ad before approving it?
