With Google watching our every move, no one any longer has the privacy that they expect, at the times they should.
Forget the time old worry that people used to have, about the government implanting microchips in everyone so we all are numbered and tracked.
The government has outsmarted us. We all have a number, voluntarily and we are all tracked by satellite wherever we go, all thanks to our New government agency, Google!
Smart phones are that chip that we all carry with us voluntarily. Hell, we not only gladly pay for them, but we even pay monthly fees for their daily use and the upkeep of the systems they use.
If that isn’t one of the best take offs of the old proverbial Trojan Horse, than I don’t know what is.
We also buy and get apps for them and blindly click accept to their user terms, without reading the rights they want us to give them.
Those rights you give to Google or the apps owner, include most anything you could imagine that would not only tell someone all about your life and what you are doing, but also let them know everywhere you go and anywhere you have been!
So stop worrying about implanted chips, because you already have a pocket or a purse full of them, along with a phone number to go with them, and Google and our government gladly thank you for your gullibility! Suckers!
Those little cartoons may cost you a bundle.
Listen up. There is a new way besides face book and other internet socials that we are giving up to much information to those who want to take advantage of us.
You know those little carton figures that people buy and stick on the rear windows of their cars that depict all the members of their family including their pets.
The figures usually are characters that are dressed in some particular way or might have a certain expression or be a certain size and they usually represent not only who is in your family but what they like to do as well.
They are basically a story of what your family is doing.
I personally like to see the little figures and what each one is wearing or doing. It’s something to do while waiting for traffic to move.
But, now criminals also are taking notice of these stickers and they are learning lots of information about you. Information that may unfortunately lead to a car jacking, you being robbed or a break in at your home.
They learn a lot of information that they no longer have to guess at and stuff that helps them determine what is going on either with your car or your home.
Pictures of kids in sports or cheerleading tell them you will be at many practices and games. Pictures of a man in a suit or a uniform tell them that dad might not be home a lot either. Pictures of little dogs, cats or hamsters tell them you don’t have a bid dog that likes to bit criminals. Depending on the time and day they can usually tell who is using that vehicle, for what purpose and probably guess where it’s going next.
Those little figures are actually cool and I like them, but unfortunately its time to pull them off thanks to some criminals that want to use them to their advantage.
It’s a shame. I know, we could all buy little guns to put in each figures hands! That might work!
Energizer has donated six thousand, nine volt batteries to Detroit residents, that are too be to be give out at fire stations in the city.
It will soon be time to set our clocks back in November and to replace the batteries in our smoke alarms.
So if you need a battery for your smoke alarm, just take your old one to your nearest fire station and they will give you a brand new Energizer nine volt battery to replace it. As long as they last.
Also, Energizer gave out 50 gift bags to residents that contained, a new smoke alarm, batteries and flashlight.
So, Thank You Energizer, for standing up and being one of the companies that contributes to America in our time of need.
How about this for everybody that wants to take away guns from law abiding citizens.
A neighbor down the street decided one summers evening just after sunset, to walk his wife and kids down to the corner party store for an icecream, expecting to enjoy the evening and cool off from the heat of the day.
They never expected the following.
While walking back home, talking and eating their frosty treats, a car veers onto the shoulder of the road behind them.
They all turned around and watched as the car eased back in it’s lane and drove past them.
The car suddenly turned right, onto the side street about 50 feet ahead of them and came too an abrupt stop.
The neighbor sees someone step out of the far side of the car who quickly starts moving towards the trunk of the vehicle. So the neighbor tells his wife and kids too get back.
He then steps toward the passenger rear corner of the car hopeing to find out what the person wanted before they could open the trunk and possibly grab a weapon, just in case they were up too no good.
He suddenly stops, as he sees the driver come around the corner of the trunk with a knife, yelling to the neighbor that he can do anything he wants.
The man proceeds towards the neighbor, waving the knife and now yelling that he will kill them, swearing more with each step.
So, the neighbor stops, reaches under the side of his shirt and draws his fully legal pistol from it’s holster.
He then steps back, taking an angled stance, with his gun lowered along side his leg, pointing straight down at the ground.
The neighbor then extends his other arm fully, hand tipped up, palm out and very sternly yells STOP! Standing back and seeing her husband draw his gun, his wife realized there was trouble, grabbed the two children and ran for safety.
The driver of the car spots the gun and yells to the neighbor, go ahead and shoot me, if you think you can and continues his approach with the knife held outwards towards the neighbor, while increasing his threats and swearing.
The neighbor yells STOP again.
They are now only two arms lengths apart when the driver finally stops his advancement and suddenly turns away, swearing even louder as he runs for his car, jumps in and speeds off down the street.
The neighbor gathered up his wife and kids, and while walking home too call the police, he calmly explained too his wife, who was against having a gun in the house or him getting a ccw, that that’s the very reason he got one.
The neighbor actually said the police patted him on the back and said they wish there were more responsible citizens like him carrying guns. That it would help to greatly decrease crime if there were.
After hearing the officer tell her husband that, she said she saw the value in having a gun and ccw and said that she wanted to get hers.
What if the neighbor wouldn’t have had his gun with him?
What would you have done without a gun?
We have the right to keep and bare arms.
Who will die if it is taken away? The criminals or the innocent?
- Practice makes perfect is what we always tell the kids. So practice a few things with them.
First, and practice this until you are satisfied, teach them to dial 911 if there’s a emergency. If it’s a fire they should run to a trusted neighbors house first then dial.
Get an old play phone to practice with, and take them through the whole call as if you were the operator. Even if your 911 service has automatic location, you still want them to practice the name, address, and phone number part because you might be somewhere that doesn’t have it when they call.
The second thing to practice is a fire drill. Teach them what to do if there is a fire and rehearse this a few times a year. Make sure they can operate anything in the path they are instructed to take. Door locks, baby gates, window locks, opening a window if it includes one. Their route must be do-able by them at all times, if that’s what they are to do. If they are too young then show them what to do until help arrives.
Take the kids up to your local fire department on a quiet Saturday evening in the summer, to see the trucks and let one of the firemen show them how they look if they are dressed with their breathing masks on. They will love it and they will know what to expect in a real rescue.
The fire men can also help you find information or help plan what everyone should do. But before you leave remember to thank them for all the hard and dangerous work they do. It’s not the pay they love, it’s the Job and the people they do it for. That’s why they do it.
I do not care who you are or what religion you vow to participate in, if you want to fly out of any airport in America, than you better get used to going through the full body scanners and that will be that!! (Eventually!)
I won’t go because of this or I won’t get scanned because of that, or (and here’s the good one,) I don’t want any strangers seeing my private parts! Well in this day and age, I will tell you what. The persons who’s job it is, to sit there and look for little details like batteries and wires, after seeing thousands of shadowy outlines of body parts every day, really doesn’t want to see your body parts (little details) either, and that’s a fact.
As a matter of fact they probably wish you would have stayed home and that no one flew, ever, so that they would not be made out to be the perverts they must be to have such an important security job like that. In essence, that is what you are doing to them! They are Trained professionals doing a job people! (What about all the different ethnic doctors who see real naked bodies and not just an image shown on a computer monitor! Oh Heaven Forbid!! Or Are they all perv’s also? Are all the people showing the doctor violating their religions too!!!)
You can damn well bet that if you were saying good bye to your family members and putting them on a plane destined for anywhere, that you want to be as sure as possible that no one on that plane was going to do something wrong! You are damn right you would like every form of screening to be used if it was your loved ones getting on that plane, now wouldn’t you!!!!!
So all I have to say is get over it for religious reasons or modesty reasons or any other reason for that matter. Each and every gosh darn person on that plane from nose to tail and that includes even the animals in the cargo hold, have someone in this world that loves them and want’s to see them home at the end of their trip. Even You!!! Mrs. I’m to modest or Mr. It’s against my religion.
So anyone who can go to a doctor, can go through the scanner also, religious beliefs or not. Cut the crap and just remember you got scanned for the safety of everyone else, just as everyone else did for your safety, so there! And by the way, I am sure that whoever anyone worships would definitely understand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I will tell you another thing also; Trees, hills and valleys come in all different shapes and sizes too and whether or not you think you are special, there is probably a better one in the next forest!! Got ME!!! Understand what I mean!!! Than quit holding up the line already and go through the scanner, because I got a plane to catch and loved ones waiting at the other end!!!!!
P.S. How can anyone, confuse a portrayed image on a video screen as being the real thing? And if people have that bad of hangups, than simply put the person who is viewing the screen in a different room in back somewhere and they can just push a button or call on their radio if they see something alarming, so the officers out there with you can handle it. That way the one watching the screen never can see any person who’s image they saw on the screen. Simple Hugh!!!
And think of this, If the scanner screen had been placed out of sight of the public to begin with, than all of the fuss would have been a whole lot less over this issue. Remember, Outta Sight, Outta Mind, just like your Little Details!!!
