Nobody’s Email: NSA to Gather Info on Baby’s Pee

Nobody Gets Email

I am NOT talking about the racist-race baiting President and all his buddies in the media and sports pontificating about the horrible verdict that came in the Zimmerman trial.  No. Not until tomorrow.

Today, I’m wondering if these Russians who invented a ‘smart’ diaper have a design or utility patent.

And, I thought, before I watched the video that the diaper would ring your phone when the baby needed to be change! THAT, would be something worth buying.

But no, evidently it just analyses your babies pee and no doubt send its back to Washington D.C. to be recorded.

What? They wouldn’t care to gather info on baby’s pee?

Are you SURE? I’d think twice before I put this on MY cell phone.

The Future of the Digital Age According to Jaron Lanier

 Nobody’s Opinion

Okay…so Joran doesn’t exactly have the slick look of the other internet guru’s. When Tom Beebe (Thanks Tom) sent me an article about this guy last week, I must admit, besides being upset about the “cashless’ society that the internet is taking us, I had not thought much about the other side— but I am now.

So Nobody Asks: Is there a  downside to the internet?

Men love to invent…and thank God. For the short time they have been here, they went from clubbing each other with clubs, to threatening each other with the atomic bomb proving that many inventions have a double edge sword. One’s man’s ceiling is another man’s floor, and even Paul Simon would admit that he’d rather be a hammer than a nail.atomic bomb

While the sheer genius of the atomic bomb can be marveled at…the world is now in continuous fear of the next ‘nuclear’ attack, and some of us wish that it had never been invented..and did they REALLY think the future consequences of it through?

Obviously not.

And so it is with the new digital technology–like the atomic bomb it is having a downside effect. With all the wonderment that has come with the ease of home computers, there is a man who is pointing out, that it could be the destruction of us all.

And that’s where Jaron Lanier comes in. Jaron was a Silicon Valley digital rock star. He was a pioneer and publicizer of virtual-reality technology (computer-simulated experience. ) and knew all the big guys; Jobs, Gates, Zuckerberg, —-Google, Facebook, etc…and he is so upset about what he has created, he is going around the world and warning the rich guys…of what he calls, “digital Maoism.”

Jaron Lanier, calls this “digital Maoism” indicting “internet intellectuals” like Facebook and Google of being “spy agencies.” He wants to subvert the “hive mind,” as the web world’s been called, before it engulfs us all, destroys political discourse, economic stability, the dignity of personhood and leads to “social catastrophe.”  Instead of an ever-upward enlightenment, it is just as likely, he argues, that the crowds will devolve into an online lynch mob.google is watching

And who could deny this? Remember how excited Obama was about the Arab Spring? Remember how it was declared that the whole thing came about because of FACEBOOK? Without FACEBOOK the riots would not have evolved.  But what came of that? While Zuckerberg was taking victory laps with Obama’s plans to get rid of Mubarak, a huge vacuum was created and the Muslim brotherhood jumped into that hole, and took the reigns of power, leaving the ‘useful idiots” staring at their cell phones and wondering what the hell  happened.Arab spring

And Jason sees this as not a good thing. It’s Mob rule…which is what democracy is, and our founders hated it. He explains it as:

“An enabling and foreshadowing of mob rule, not a growth of democracy, but an accretion of tribalism. But it slowly is turning us into a nation of hate-filled trolls. We have economic fear combined with everybody joined together on these instant twitchy social networks which are designed to create mass action. What does it sound like to you? It sounds to me like the prequel to potential social catastrophe.”

And then there’s the economic side, which is much more damaging. Here’s more:

“I’d had a career as a professional musician and what I started to see is that once we made information free, it wasn’t that we consigned all the big stars to the bread lines. They still had mega tour profits. Instead, it was the middle-class people who were consigned to the bread lines. And that was a very large body of people. And all of a sudden there was this weekly ritual, sometimes even daily: ‘Oh, we need to organize a benefit because so and so who’d been a manager of this big studio that closed its doors has cancer and doesn’t have insurance. We need to raise money so he can have his operation.’

And I realized this was a hopeless, stupid design of society and that it was our fault. It really hit on a personal level—this isn’t working. And I think you can draw an analogy to what happened with communism, where at some point you just have to say there’s too much wrong with these experiments. So by taking value off the books, you’re actually shrinking the economy.” whoever has the biggest computer can analyze everyone else to their advantage and concentrate wealth and power. [Meanwhile], it’s shrinking the overall economy. I think it’s the mistake of our age.”middle class

Since Jason is a musician also, he sees the damage here. Gates, Jobs, Zuckerberg, they just don’t get it because the ONLY job they ever had was creating the internet. But when you’re a musician you dream of the hit record, and with free downloads…the monetary rewards of original music went out with the proverbial free downloads onto your hard drive.

And not just musicians…the whole print industry has been changed: thousands of newspapers and magazines have shut down.  Think of how many journalists have lost their jobs. And SO much misinformation is put on the internet, it’s hard to tell what’s true and what isn’t.

Many of our schools are getting rid of books, and giving the kids IPADS. They have stopped teaching cursive writing…texting will become so big in the future, that future generations will not even know how to make a complete sentence. Already in China, the kids are forgetting how to read, because all they do is text. Not to mention the waste of time everyone spends on their computers.

AND…when everything is online: books, money—- all that you do and say will go to the few people who run the world and who will have the power to completely control every single thing. Jaron is right. Jason even goes so far as to blame the housing crash on the internet:

“The rise of networking has coincided with the loss of the middle class, instead of an expansion in general wealth, which is what should happen. But if you say we’re creating the information economy, except that we’re making information free, then what we’re saying is we’re destroying the economy.”Ipad and monkey

To my mind a over leveraged unsecured mortgage is exactly the same thing as a pirated music file. It’s somebody’s value that’s been copied many times to give benefit to some distant party. In the case of the music files, it’s to the benefit of an advertising spy like Google [which monetizes your search history], and in the case of the mortgage, it’s to the benefit of a fund manager somewhere. But in both cases all the risk and the cost is radiated out toward ordinary people and the middle classes—and even worse, the overall economy has shrunk in order to make a few people more.”

We read of online bullying leading to teen suicides in the United States and, in China, there are reports of well-organized online virtual lynch mobs forming…digital Maoism.”

You know, too many of us know someone who has been grieviously hurt by the internet. I know a man whose girlfriend got mad at him, and went online to FACEBOOK and told all kinds of horror stories to their whole network of friends, and it even got back to his work. They were lies, and somehow he forgave her, and they made up, but the damage had been done. This is happening to millions daily. There is no recourse in court….in fact the law can’t keep up with it.facebnook

And if you think that the powerful people will think twice about hurting society, remember the story of Zuckerberg. When he first invented FACEBOOK as a student, he put up a very demoralizing contest and rated all the women on his campus as “ugly” or “cute” and everyone on campus got to have fun putting down women. Typical liberal. He was old enough to have a moral compass, but he had none.

It was…disgusting….and yet, Zuckerberg was forgiven for such an insidious prank because he was a genius. The question is, when these young, rich, and sometimes very immature boys work with Presidents, you DO have a Maoism. Zuckerberg has moved to China to avoid taxes.

No doubt Zuckerberg thinks he is saving the world, he’s not like Jaron who sees beyond himself. You COULD say that the internet is a young technology..it will work out the bugs in time.

I’m sure they thought the same thing about nuclear warfare. But unlike the atomic bomb…so far, we’ve been kept pretty safe from it..it doesn’t affect our daily lives. But the internet is working it’s magic every single day. Hopefully…Jaron will make the rich elites think: After all…he’s right…we are NOT gadgets….but like the ‘ape’: We sure do love them.

The American/China Merger

Nobody Wonders

“Enemy of the State” is one of my favorite movies. Will Smith plays the main character, and he is hunted by the NSA because, although, he doesn’t know it, he was slipped a video of a Senator having someone murdered. It’s a great action film, but I wonder how many people believed in what the film was trying to educate the American public on: Everything we say or do, can be, without warrant..observed. The fact is, all of our data is being stored. The new technology that we are all excited about, is being used by our government to spy on us….and yet, we all are conditioned that it’s necessary.

If you talk about this to ANYONE..they always say, “Well hey! I’m not doing anything wrong, why should I worry?”

Or…as they once said in Nazi Germany, “They didn’t come after ME..I wasn’t Jewish, so I just didn’t worry about it.”

It was around the time of that movie, (1998) that I started noticing blackouts when I was listening to the radio. I couldn’t blame them on just random radio waves causing static, because I observed that they always  happened right when some conservative talk show host was about to reveal something sinister about our government.  They happened when I listened to Rush Limbaugh, or Alex Jones on Coast to Coast, and many other stations. They still happen time and again, but ONLY when some secret is about to be revealed, so no…I don’t believe my neighbor is turning on his Wi-Fi at the exact same time I’m waiting for the secret to be revealed. Nope—- because this even happens when I’m listening to the radio in my car at the exact moment when I am going,  “Wow…I can’t BELIEVE they are going to talk about this…finally…somebody is going to talk about this!” And then you hear the first word and then—–ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ…

Last night I was listening to the radio, and George Noory was interviewing a man who’s FACEBOOK account had been taken down…because he put up a Gandhi quote:

The reports are absolutely true. Facebook suspended the Natural News account earlier today after we posted an historical quote from Mohandas Gandhi. The quote reads:

“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.

This historical quote was apparently too much for Facebook’s censors to bear. They suspended our account and gave us a “final warning” that one more violation of their so-called “community guidelines” would result in our account being permanently deactivated.

Evidently, this is happening to many conservatives sites. I’ve never been a fan of Facebook, because frankly, I think it’s a government dream which is gathering information on you, and your friends, and every single thing about you. And how does this make us any different than China? When Obama gathers all the heads of the great social media sites in the White House, it’s not to talk about his golf game.

He is collaborting with them.

According to an article on Drudge: China has tightened internet controls, legalizing the deletion of posts or pages which are deemed to contain “illegal” information.

So, now we are starting it here. We are becoming China.

Because this is happening in bits and pieces, no one is much concerned about this. But yesterday I checked out a book at the library, and for the first time (I’m been checking out library books for over 50 years.) I found blocks of paragraphs …just blacked out. (see photo) RB 2 001

So, they couldn’t block the book, but now it seems the government can blank out what they don’t want the public to read.

Add up all these little bits and pieces and you can see what’s coming.

Now, the aim is to “fundamentally” change America, and destroying our Bill of Righs..free speech, guns, and right to privacy is already in the making. And the words of Sam Donaldson are freightening.  He indicates that tea party people’s ideas are old and outdated, but the fact is, these old and outdated rights of freedom are being replaced with the new tyranny of soft communism…and Sam considers himself privy to the “new America” where one man will decide just about everything.

The tea party people are for freedom. It’s that simple.

The “tea party” people, are being attacked like the Jews of old. And pretty soon, putting up any quotation from the Constitution will be taken down.

It’s been done bit by bit…on purpose, but be prepared for one day to wake up, and like my friend Mona says…on our TV will be…”THE STATE.”

And if you don’t go along with it…you will be…the enemy. If you are a “tea party” American patriot…you already are.

Remember…once upon a time Sam Adams head was on the top of King George’s list. You are in…good company.

Our founders gave us the best Constitution in the world…let’s not lose it.

Poor Obama…Has to ‘Work’ 4 more years…

Nobody’s Perfect

It’s a “cliff-hanger” of suspense…If ‘President’ Obama and the Congress don’t make a deal in the next couple of days…I’ll have to sell my old drum set, and my grandfather’s old watch,  and Timmy Geither will just have to move to Switzerland.  But gee…what’s a President to do? He won the election, booked a 3 week vacation in Hawaii…and now he has to fly back Washington D.C. to “talk” again to the same people who he didn’t want to talk to in the first place.

How unfair is that?obama in Hawaii

First, we heard he was coming in Wednesday morning. THEN..it got updated to Thursday afternoon. THEN it go moved to more like Thursday night. Michelle wasn’t about to cancel her fun, so, will Obama come here for a Photo-op and go back out to Hawaii?

And how much will that cost us?

Or will he just bring his golf buddies back with him and take Air Force One down to Cancun?

It’s just so annoying to have your vacation interrupted by the Nation’s business. BUT..there IS a solution, and I’m so glad Nobody thought of it. Because it’s not being reported that the Obama’s have bought a house for $40 million dollars in Hawaii. I’m sure they have got a lot to do…especially hiding the fact that they are part of the 1% they keep talking about.Obama's Mantion

Barack and Michelle have just purchase an estate in close proximity to land owned by the University of Hawaii, where the Obama presidential library and “political center” will be located. The estate is valued at $40 million. There’s a movie theater in the mansion and it already is set up to play ALL of Obama’s speeches over the last 20 years – in a continuous loop. ”It was fun while it lasted”, Miss Marion is quoted by Chicagoans as saying, “but wait until you see the place they’re buying for Michelle and Barack!”Obama's Mama

What we need to do, is get Obama…”THE BEAM,” and it’s a steal at $16,000. It walks, it talks, it connects, and it will save the taxpayers BILLIONS…no make that TRILLIONS of dollars. All it will need is one body guard to take it up and down stairs.

Take it from a boss who loves it!

Palo Alto, Calif.–Engineer Dallas Goecker attends meetings, jokes with colleague and roams the office building just like other employees at this company in Silicon Valley. But Goecker isn’t in California, he’s more than 2,300 miles away, working at home in Seymour, Indiana. It’s all made possible by Beam…a mobile video-conferencing machine that he can drive around his company’s offices and workshops in Palo Alto. The five–foot-tall device, topped with a large video screen, gives him a presence that makes him and his colleagues feel like he’s actually there.

Think of the GAS he is saving! Think of all the plane tickets he won’t have to buy! Think of the fact that he can’t touch his secretary in all the right places!Japanese work robots

I think the Republicans would LOVE it. They might like talking to a robotic screen so much, all kinds of deals would get done. In fact, I say we send them all one, and let them stay home in their districts, where they might have to actually SEE the damage they are doing to the country.

Or they could ALL move to Hawaii!

Software engineer Josh Faust beams in daily from Hawaii, where he moved to surf, and plans to spend the winter hitting the slopes in Lake Tahoe. He can’t play ping-pong or eat the free, catered lunches in Palo Alto, but he otherwise feels like he’s part of the team.

So, there you go. I think it would work. Beam them in. Let Obama go back to Hawaii and stay there…and you know what? He won’t need Air Force One anymore. Park that gas-guzzling sucker Mr. “President” in D.C.

You would save so much money, that we could expand welfare, and nobody would have to work, ever again. Use it to give free Airplane rides to Hawaii to visit your house!

After all…we paid for it. Obama's living roome

Nobody Cares About 1984

Nobody Cares

Nobody confesses: We (my husband and I) are among the last people on the block to own an HD TV flat screen, and I should know, because every night as I walked the dogs around the block, I peer into all the living room windows, and have yet to see anything BUT flat screens. While I long for the days when the airwaves were free…I still haven’t gotten into the “I simply MUST have a flat screen. ” state of mind. My reasoning has always been, with music, books, or TV…it’s the content that matters the most. I don’t think American Idol is going to impress me that much more in HD than in the old-fashioned Zenith that’s in my work room.

But…today, this was in the news:

That’s exactly what Verizon is proposing in a patent application filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The application describes a system that uses infrared cameras and microphones to watch what people are doing in front of a TV. If two people are cuddling on a couch watching TV, the system might show them a commercial for a romantic vacation, flowers, and yes, even condoms, according to the application. The system could even figure out what pets are in the room and start showing dog food commercials or flea treatment ads.

The problem with traditional TV advertising is that it can’t account for what users are doing, the patent says. This limits the effectiveness of the ads.

Really. What a reason to argue for a patent…you can’t see the person. What benefit does that have for society?

But, if you watch the video, it seems Samsung is already watching people have sex, scarf down old pizza, burp, snore, you name it. All in the name of “better advertising.”
I’m glad I searched for this, because just last week, we went into Best Buy to look at flat screens,…and we found one.. a 40″   HD LG TV for only $270.00.

“Hey, that’s not a bad price…should we? We could put it in the kitchen.” I said…looking for further discussion. NO…I was looking for mainly some feedback, which with a x-navy seal–discussions are not usually optimal. Even though I never seem to learn that and it hasn’t stopped me yet from thinking out loud.

He picked up the box and dragged it to the counter.

The salesman said, “Well, do you have the right connectors? Do you have a power strip? Screen Cleaner? I have a special right now on all this.” and he went over to a display and sure enough, for ONLY $150 you too could get the things you need to hook up your new HD flat screen TV.

I thought all I needed to do was plug it in….so right away I was going…”I don’t NEED a screen cleaner, I have a dustrag…and don’t they have power strips less than $100? When did a power strip cost $100?”

And they call this progress? What? Did Al Gore creep into the HD TV business?

By the time the guy added up all the extra stuff we needed to take care of our big sale, it came out to $445. My husband said…”No thanks” and walked off. I was left there staying at the guy..

“Hey, I TRIED to get you to throw out the screen cleaner, but you persisted!”

So now, I know I will never buy a Samsung…(do watch the video to find out why) but something tells me that in less than five months, every single flat screen sold will have face recognition, and the government will be collecting every single image of you watching your TV.

And then…when we are all too fat to get out of bed…1984. Big Brother TV

You TV will start talking to you, saying your name…telling you… “Bob…do NOT eat that cupcake. You will be docked twenty dollars from your paycheck.”

Or a sweet female voice will say…”More foreplay would be nice”

Or a man’s voice will says…”If you were thinner, he would be more amorous.”

Or..”You are falling asleep at work, you’re productivity is down, GOODNIGHT.”

AND…you can’t turn it off….Nope….and you watch, Nobody will care about this massive invasion of privacy becauase all the people that DO care, you will never, ever, ever, see them on your TV.

So someday all the good loving freedom people like me, will just stop watching it. And that’s when my computer will report to Samsung…

Nobody’s Email: DA DRONE! DA DRONE!

Nobody Gets Email

I can’t think of a more fun way to start off a Saturday then with the email I just got! It’s from my very good friend in Australia, amfortas, and he has written up a very educational blog about drones. It has  everything you always wanted to know about drones, and flying machines.

I’ve included a video from the blog that I especially like, because you know me…I saw a drone over a tea party rally I was at in 2007, and I’ve hated them ever since.

Since amfortas wrote the article, I’m sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.

(Thanks to amfortas!)

The IPAD Can Find YOU!

Nobody Reports

Leave it to Steve Jobs to make sure that IF your IPAD is stolen, you can track it by going to the Apple Apps. The chip in the IPAD shows you where it is. In the near future, all the cell phones will have this chip too.

But remember..it works both ways. If the government wants to find you, and you are carrying around your new wonderful IPAD, they’ve got you.

While this wonderful feature is introduced as a great thing, and most people would say so because of how expensive the  IPADS are, the technology gives our “authorities” more knowledge about where you are.

I don’t have an IPAD, but one of my friends, Pattie, has one and carries it everywhere. Mona, my other friend (I have two you know) wants one so badly, she sold her tanning bed to get one.

All this…tracking I suppose will be done by the new multimillion dollar NSA complex being built-in Utah.

Sooner or later, we will all be ‘chipped’–the govenment will chip our cars, our cell phones, our driver’s licenses, and our IPADS–they won’t need to chip our wrists will they? They will know where we are and what we are doing at all times of the day. And they are already listening.

Good thing? A lot of libertarians would disagree.

That kid might someday grow up to catch us all, cutting up our National ID’s. (cute kid)
