We may not be changing the literal dictionary definition of the actual word "privacy," but we are changing our cultural expectations of privacy more and more each day.

Like I said, I don't like this ruling, but it's hard for me to get really raging mad about it because I just don't see it as all THAT different from what we already choose to do to ourselves (as a culture, not necessarily all individuals). I just think we're heading in a direction where privacy is becoming sort of an irrelevant relic societally speaking. I don't like THAT, either, but I'm probably going to get swept up in it whether I like it or not.

I think everything I've read has seen the DNA tests their doing does not find anything like health problems and such.
every five years, I have to have to be finger printed by the TX racing commission when applying for a grooms license. Where does that information go? does the state/govt have access to it? every year they also swab test me for drugs, most companies do this, so why would the govt/state have to also do it? couldn't they simply request that info from the companies? or is it classified?
