Nobody's Opinion

Smile! You’re On Napolitano’s Camera!

Nobody Wins

When the big camera’s went up all over our highways here in Missouri, they went up overnight. Nobody on the local news even mentioned them.

Every city is having budget problems, but there seems to be plenty of money to put up camera’s at every stop light. Surely all this technology had to cost a pretty penny…so just where was this money coming from? No one on the local news ever talked about the expense.

I don’t know about you, but while people complained, what was told to the public was that traffic camera’s were being put up for our ‘safety,’ and still, not much was said about the cost.

Like everyone else, I just excepted it…until one day I was sitting at a stoplight, and I was the first car to make a left turn, and I was just waiting for the light… and FLASH!…right in my face.Face Recognition

Someone had just decided to take my picture.  For no reason at all.

This has happened too many times, and I started noticing how often the camera’s were going off, when other cars were stopped. So, sometimes I drive with the sun flap down just to hide half my face. Having my picture taken like I was some sort of criminal really gets me…I would say angry, but pissed off is a better way of putting it.

When I told my husband that I thought they were taking pictures, he thought I was crazy.

BUT…..

Today, I heard a Missouri Senator on the DANA Show (See video) say that he had just found out, that they have been taking face recognition pictures and storing the pictures  in a big data base, and by law, in Missouri, they cannot do that. It’s against the law. The Senators were lied to.

In fact, when you go to get your driver license, they are supposed to erase all information, but Sen. Schaefer had found out that they were storing all the data from the license bureaus and erasing none of it.biometric

This republican Senator has introduced a bill to try to stop this face recognition technology, but our Governor…who IS a democrat, has to have known all along that all this information was being gathered and stored. Of course, like all the other liberals, he will say he didn’t know..and keep on doing it. The truth seems to be, that states have no rights in this matter. The FBI just got a billion dollars for the face recognition program.FBI biometric

State and local officials are increasingly granting the federal government access to their registry of motor vehicles databases and, thanks to a FBI program announced to the public in August 2012, deploying their own powerful face recognition tools. Zooming out to the bigger picture we find the mother of all biometrics programs, the FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) — the biometrics databank to beat all biometrics databanks. It will contain fingerprints, iris scans, face recognition ready photographs, palm prints, DNA and innumerable other biometric data points on tens if not hundreds of millions of people, both US citizens and foreigners.

And that’s not all: Now, the President is giving the FBI full reign to look at everyone financial records.

(Reuters) – The Obama administration is drawing up plans to give all U.S. spy agencies full access to a massive database that contains financial data on American citizens and others who bank in the country, according to a Treasury Department document seen by Reuters.

Once again, we are told it to look for criminals.George Orwell 2

We need more Senators to stand up to this.

The Senator suggested we contact our congressmen and complain. It seems to me, it’s up to our “representatives” to take care of this. Anyway what can we do? We didn’t break the law. But data is being gathered and for what reason, I can only guess at.

Nobody Wins when we live in a “guilty until proven innocent” Orwellian society

But that’s exactly what they are building.

Thank God: The Pope is Humble and 13 is NOT an Unlucky Number!

Nobody Knows

“For whosoever exalted himself shall be abased: and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.”

                              St. Luke Ch. 14, V. 11

—If there is such a thing as lucky numbers.

I was in the doctor’s office today…and I was thinking about the date: 3-13-13. Not usually suspicious, I remembered my mother had her massive stroke on Friday the 13th.

“Oh…”I said to the nurse.. as I noticed the date. “It’s not Friday, hopefully that’s good news.”The Conclave Of Cardinals Have Elected A New Pope To Lead The World's Catholics

I was there to get the results of my brain MRI.

Sitting in the office trying not to think about the news I might get, and trying to brace myself for bad news, I was watching the crowds of Catholics in Rome. They were all standing in the rain, in the cold…waiting…hoping for a new pope soon….

Hope. God, we need hope more than anything nowadays don’t we?

As I sat looking at the doctor he said: “Your scan is normal.”

Did I cry? You bet I did. Strokes run in the family, all the way back to JQA collapsing on the floor of the house. I know the damage that is done with a stroke.  Odds are, I will die of one…but not today.

Today was a good day. And the 13th even…how bout that?

After I got home, I was anxious to see the new Pope, and I must say, at the very sight of him, I cried again. I’m sure some of it was stress from the last month and the day, but I could just see by looking at his face: This WAS a man of God. This man, wasn’t going to get caught up in the power of the position. In fact, I don’t ever think I have ever gotten such a good first impression from any Pope I’ve ever seen.

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina was elected pope Wednesday, becoming the first pontiff from the Americas and the first from outside Europe in more than a millennium. He chose the name Francis, associating himself with the humble 13th-century Italian preacher who lived a life of poverty.

So, the prophesy of this being the LAST pope, gets thrown in the —(Uh– nope)—trash bin right along with the Mayan prophesy of 2012.Dove

Pope Francis, will follow Jesus, and that’s a good thing for us all.

But, did the day have anything to do with it? Does this redeem the number 13, as just another silly superstition?

Who cares? God bless the new Pope…let’s hope he brings back real HOPE to the whole world.
