The ‘creepy’ Google guy, Eric Schmidt, thinks that Amazon should not be allowed to use drones to deliver packages. This from a guy who will BAN your conservative writings against democrats on his Google website. He said THIS in Fortune magazine, and I quote:
“How would you feel,” Google (GOOG) chairman Eric Schmidt asked in the Guardian last April, “if your neighbor went over and bought a commercial observation drone that they can launch from their back yard. It just flies over your house all day. How would you feel about it?”
To which I grabbed THIS quote from Philip Elmer Dewitt:
How would I feel about a drone that could snoop on me? Probably the same way I’d feel about a company that monitored all my online activities — the e-mail I send and receive, the websites I visit, the places I visit, the products I buy, the YouTubes I watch, etc. etc. — and sold that information to advertisers.
Ha! They could do that ANYWAY. If a terrorist wants a drone, or a missile, or guns, I’m sure all he has to do is hook up with the Libyan army (who have all those US goodies) and march across our border. And he could get all those things in Mexico!
You have to laugh when one of the biggest spy networks on the planet is worried about other people spying. Why do I call him creepy? He also said this:
The Google policy on a lot of things,” he told attendees at the Aspen Institute’s Washington Ideas Forum, “is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.”
The question is: What is Eric’s definition of creepy?
So therefore, every time I see Eric Schmidt I can’t help myself…I think of this guy:
Everyone was talking today about how Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin wrote a scathing remark about America in an opinion piece.. The old cold war tensions are starting to blow up again, thanks to BO…and you might think this is the first time Russia has embarrassed the United States, but it’s happened before. Before Putin, there was Nikita Khrushchev.
According to Brian Thomsen in the book: Lies and Propaganda Thought History, America has stepped in deep doo-doo before. We have a habit of losing our spy planes:
In 1960 the cold war was heating up and an effort to defuse the tensions there was a summit meeting for May 16, bringing together the four heads of state of the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union. Unfortunately on May 1, a U.S. Lockheed U-2 plane disappeared over the sovereign territory of the Soviet Union. Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev declared that a “spy plane’ had been shot down, whereupon the United States issued a statement reaffirming the claim that the plane was a ‘weather research aircraft” and the pilot had difficulty with his oxygen equipment during a mission over Turkey” The administration stated, “There was absolutely no deliberate attempt to violate Soviet airspace and never has been.”
The U.S. was lying.
The U-2 pilot, Francis Gary Powers had left Peshwar, Pakistan, intending to fly over the Soviet Union and land at Bodo, Norway with the intention to photograph Soviet intercontinental ballistic missiles development sites in and around Sverdlovsk and Plesetsk….but he was shot down by a 14 SA-2Guideline surface-to-air missile which brought the plane down. Powers was suppose to destroy the plane and/or himself, but he was captured after he abandoned the aircraft by parachute. The Soviets got the film, and found 7,500 rubles on him.
Powers was put on trial for espionage, pleaded guilty (to avoid being executed) and was convicted on August 19. After serving three years hard labor he was exchanged for Soviet spy master Rudolf Abel in 1962. The Paris summit was called off, and Eisenhower, Charles De Gaulle, Harold Macmillan, and Khrushchev. didn’t meet and things got worse.
As usual to American politics, a cloak of deniability was quickly fashion for the president to protect him from scandal….of course. Later on, when asked how high he was flying on May 1, 1960, he often replied, “evidently not high enough.” Many of you do not remember, but Obama lost a valuable spy plane to Iran in 2011. No, there wasn’t a pilot, but gee…nothing like handing over our best technology. Nobody Really remembers that now do they? That was an even bigger blooper than the U-2 taking pictures.
Yes, Nobody Remembers so I just thought I’d bring it up. Oh yes, George W. Bush lost a plane in China…but…he at least tried to get it back.
Nobody Wins: Here we have two nobody inventor winners! Don’t want Obama following you to your girlfriend’s house? Block that signal.
Okay, so I see a few bugs here. What happens when you have to make a call? It looks like you would have to take it out of the ‘pocket’ and then BAM. They’ve got cha.
Or maybe you can put your off pocket hoodie on while you’re making your call….or better yet— Get them to stop spying on you. (Laugh here)
Wait…then the call signal won’t go out.
Anyway, the good news here is, nobody likes to be snooped on, and these two nobodies are trying to do something about it. Good for them!
Nobody Wins: Another big win this week was Ann Coulter’s last column, where she compares Saddam Hussein’s crimes to Assad. When Ann is hot, she is sizzling. Read that here.
Nobody Wins: It was a big loss today when John Kerry kept insisting to Rand Paul that bombing Syria, would not, and should not be considered taking us to war. It’s just an ‘action’ to make Assad stop using chemical weapons. It’s one thing to change the meaning of what the word ‘is’ —but, it’s quite another when your Secretary of State changes the meaning of dropping bombs on a country from a declaration of war, to some sort of friendly warning letter.
Nobody Wins: Another loss went to Miley Cyrus, who bragged about how successful her sex dance was on MTV, because she is reeling in the MONEY! Nobody suggests she get her ears fixed.
Nobody Wins: And on a lighter note, at the zoo today, we were walking around the corner, and we kept hearing loud rhythmic GRUNTS. We came around the corner—-and low and behold…somebody got lucky! (Yes, I HAD to take a picture, wouldn’t you?) If you’ve never seen a Galapagos Turtle having sex, you might want to put that on your bucket list of “uh?” I’m so sorry I did not have my movie camera. His grunts were just great.
What I did notice was that SHE was eating an apple during the whole thing. Which gave me a few ideas……

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.
First up— we have the Detroit Firemen, who are complaining about running out of toilet paper. It’s bad enough they say that they are having to take cutbacks in their big union government budgets, but the paper towels and toilet paper are not being refilled due to a mess up at the main office. Some of them are having to bring their own …from HOME!!
Second Up— We have an example of the new spy mannequin, (see video) which has face recognition software, and by the claims of this video, can tell you everything you want to know about the person standing in front of it that you will ever need to know, in order to make a profit.
Since a REAL human cannot look at somebody and tell you much of anything for sure, how does a computer do it? If a person is standing in front of a mannequin too long, and smiling, maybe they are just standing and smiling because, as they say in baby lingo, they just passed gas!
Or…they just got a raise and are in somekind of “I don’t believe what just happened to me!” mode. It might not have anything to do with the outfit on the mannequin.
So, therefore, the only way they can know about you is if they are linked up to the police database, and then EVERYTHING about you will appear.
Nobody Thinks the firemen should get some of these mannequins and put them in the bathroom WITH the toilet. Then, it will become clear who is stealing the toilet paper. If we don’t nick this in the bud now, next thing you know, all the firemen will be wanting free condoms.
Also, I’d have one in all the rooms to watch and make sure our Firemen are actually doing their jobs. HEY!…Maybe we should have them in all our government building, and post the videos on the internet “public service” website with live feeds!
Why shouldn’t the taxpayers know what their ‘public servants’ are doing? They are spying on us, and WE pay their salaries! I think it should be the other way around, don’t you?
And after Monica…I think a spy mannequin that looks like George Washington, should be put in the Oval Office.
Both of them are absurd.
Do they have to spy on us shopping now? Didn’t that job use to go to a HUMAN?
I’m thinking…the solution is gum. If I ever see one of those things I’m going to take my wad out and place it in the right places. Really, it would be a whole lot better than talking to one. Surely, they would NOT like what I would say.
Gum, in both eyes. That way they wouldn’t be able to see me wrapping the whole thing in toilet paper.
