Noticed this on a Denny’s door in New Mexico yesterday. In addition to cameras on the ceiling, there was a small white oblong object on the ceiling as well. What’s up with this and has anyone else seen these anywhere?

"Before I place my order, let me clearly state that I do not give my consent, implied or otherwise, to have my conversations monitored and that any such recordings, transcripts or other records collected on (. insert date and start time. .) until my departure have been obtained without service of warrant and are therefore a violation of my rights under Amendment 4, United States Constitution.....

....OK- 2 over medium with sausage, hash browns and rye toast. A glass of milk when you bring it out. Thanks!"

If you've got Alexa, Echo, Siri, or any of the other 'in-home voice activated web-based personal assistants', you've already consented to being monitored anyway, and this should be a, 'Meh.'

My curiosity is at the point where the voice monitoring, digital footprint, and 'red flag' laws intersect.

Suppose your Alexa (or even your Denny's monitoring) picks up the words, 'damned government', which triggers a monitoring and reporting routine. The routine picks up more words or phrases that could be connected to planning action -- casualties, attack, escape, firepower -- whatever, or could be connected to a couple of old warriors rehashing old times.

Suppose a scan of your digital footprint finds credit card purchases of things such as dehydrated food, ammunition, night vision devices, camouflage clothing, first aid supplies, cement, etc., connected to you through your credit card, or through the credit cards of people you have called in the days leading up to the monitoring trigger.

Suppose Amazon, in a fit of virtue-signalling intended to get the government to back off monopoly-busting efforts, announces it supports efforts to actively preempt people who might pose a threat to themselves and others. What appears on the surface to be an empty gesture of corporate social justice-ism turns out to be the harbinger of a program that turns over the results of aforementioned monitoring to local authorities to support efforts to take guns from dangerous people in support of red flag laws.

The problem I have with this is that while some people have called this idea, 'paranoid', no one's called it, 'impossible'.

Wow. Audio recording without your consent at a Denny's.

I would have asked to see the manager, pointed at the sign while he was with me, and then said my famous quote:

"Thank you, screw you, bye !!!"

If they are so paranoid that they have to record my every word while there, along with video, then they most certainly DO NOT need nor deserve my business.

My next door neighbor manages a Denny's in Santa Fe. I'll ask him about this next time I see him. Which city/town were you in when you saw this, Smoke?

We knew Denny's would always fold when in about 1969-70, they changed the name from the original that was seen as politically incorrect. I was heart broken!

They make a great breakfast, but we’ll likely avoid them in the future.

Check the wiretapping laws in NM. Pretty sure for audio AND video recording, it requires consent by both parties. If they have audio and video surveillance at the location and I'm right about the law, they could be facing massive fines and possibly criminal prosecution.

*****'s was a different company. Denny's just bought some of their locations when *****'s got into financial difficulties. There's is still one *****'s - the original location in Santa Monica, CA, and it's still run by the same family.
