Onstar is the main reason and impetus for my idea about putting a disabling ability in every computer in every car from now on. The only people who can "disable" the vehicle is LE and only after the vehicle is entered as stolen, involved in a felony, or in a pursuit. The LE agency would have to contact the manufacturer who would give the specific disable code for that car and the transmission would go to neutral so that all power and safety equipment would still work.
The technology is there and this is coming, mark my words.
If you like the IRS, DMV and the Post Office, you will love Obamacare!

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."
