Forcing You Back Onto the Grid.


Image

In the United States, we do not own the property we live on, even if it is already paid off.  In essence, we are just renting it from the government.

The government has had, for some time now “Nuisance Abatement Teams”, or law enforcement officers which check to see if building code, fire code, etc are up to date.  They enforce city ordinances like vehicle forfeiture, graffiti protection…

But recently, with the all of the people that wish to live self sustaining life styles, the government has broadened their search for offenders of ordinances.  With several million people living “off the grid” or growing their own food, producing their own electricity, and not having to rely on the government or other companies for all their needs, the law enforcement officers have been ordered to bring these people back to the system.   Most of these people abide by the laws.  The government is citing these people for ridiculous reasons such as “bothering the neighbors” or “code violations”, such as growing food within the city limits… but some of these people live far from the city!   For instance if you grow a food garden, they can cut your garden down or make you get a food safety permit and inspectors from the government come to your property and make sure everything is done “right”.  The definition of right is open to interpretation.  If you are growing organically they could shut you down.  At the best, they have a record of what you grow and how much you grow.  In some areas they are forcing people off their land entirely!!!  There are anti hoarding laws as well. In a time of “emergency” either real or fabricated, the government can take away your food and supplies if you have more than 30 days for each person in a household. The government will then “redistribute” them to ?????   Federal Agents already want lists of Mormon‘s that store food.

The government can also have you detained and sent to a psychiatric facility if they think you are mentally ill..crazy for wanting to grow food that is not processed, laden with sugar and salt, genetically modified or sprayed with who knows what.

FEMA recommends keeping only 3 days worth of essential supplies per person on hand at any time.  According to the Department of Homeland Security, you might be a terrorist if you have 7+ days of food storage per person in your home.  Seven days is not very much.

Ways of monitoring you: Facial recognition software, food “discount” cards, memberships to wholesale stores (sams club, costco, etc.), your mail (remember the government comes to your home 6 days a week), vehicle i.d. tags (rfid and other types), credit/debit cards, your smartphone, the internet, drones, satellites….

Here is one story that is very disturbing:

A Tulsa woman is suing the city’s code enforcement officers after she said they cut down her garden with no cause.

Denise Morrison said she has more than 100 plant varieties in her front and back yards and all of them are edible and have a purpose.

She knows which ones will treat arthritis, which will make your food spicy, which ones keep mosquitoes away and treat bug bites, but she said none of that matter to city inspectors.

Last August, Morrison’s front and back yards were filled with flowers in bloom, lemon, stevia, garlic chives, grapes, strawberries, apple mint, spearmint, peppermint, an apple tree, walnut tree, pecan trees and much more.

“I came back three days later, sat in my driveway, cried and left,” Morrison said.

If you are storing food for emergency or growing your own food garden don’t advertise it.

Independence is frowned upon America.  The want to monitor us all of the time…they made us nearly prisoners…and many didn’t or still don’t know it.  This isn’t freedom we have.  Don’t fool yourself.  Everything we do is guided.  Should you be able to walk to the store at 3 a.m.?  Absolutely!  It might not be the smartest thing in the world because you could be kidnapped, attacked,  hit by a car that didn’t see you or worse harassed and arrested…for ?????

Facebook Buys Facial Recognition Face.com


In a move to open up opportunities, the social network site, Facebook.com bought Face.com, an Israeli company, that specializes in facial recognition software.

Face.com has already released 2 facebook apps, the first, called photo finder, scans untagged pictures of themselves and friends and photo tagger,  which allows a user to tag pictures in bulk.

Although the apps may seem convenient to some, facial recognition software has raised flags with privacy groups and other people that don’t want their privacy invaded and potentially fall into the hands of those who could abuse it, like corporations or the state.  Matching a face to a name and then a person’s entire background could be used to achieve a society under complete surveillance every time they leave their home and a camera picks up their image, in a store, on the street, or in this instance, where they were and who they were with, when a photo was taken.   As this technology advances, expect to see more and more law enforcement agencies using it to track every citizen, associate you with other people and associate the people within a certain area of a crime that’s taken place.

This is especially troubling because Facebook recently bought the popular app called Instagram, which allows users to take photos with their phones, add filters to achieve certain effects, tag people, geotag the location of the photograph and then share the photograph with other Instagram users (which boasted 30 million accounts in April, before the Android app was available).

Face.com is backed by Yandex NV, Russia’s most-used search engine, and investing firm Rhodium.

Alas, Facebook is not the first to use facial recognition technology.  Google‘s Picasa, Apple’s iPhoto,  Sony’s Picture Motion Browser and Microsoft’s Windows Live Photo Gallery already use similar software.

Facebook’s stock rose 4.7 percent in trading today, but still falling 17 percent short of it’s projected value.

And don’t bother deleting your pictures from any of these services, they’ve already been crawled most likely and if not the FBI has been using this technology for awhile.

 

The image above represents a study done by Adam Harvey in which makeup is used to disguise ones face.  The faces with red square are ones that were identified by facial recognition software.  This may be out of date.  read more: http://gajitz.com/about-face-defeat-face-recognition-software-with-makeup/

 

Facebook Tool: Who Are You Looking At?


I came across an interesting little tool that tells you who you are searching for most on your facebook.  From the tests that I did the results seem pretty accurate.  I mean, you probably have an idea of who’s name you type in the search bar most, but still its a fun little trick.

Basically, you make sure https browsing is turned off. Then you take this little bookmarklet and drag it up to your toolbar.  It should say “facebook friends”.  Then you go to your facebook page and just click on the link you moved into your toolbar.  Your most searched for friends will be at the top.

Tools: People Search Made Easy


Many people search  sites today are frustrating when you are searching for someone because they make you pay. I’m going to show you a few a tricks to help you search.  I recommend searching for yourself first.  Search your name, usernames, emails, phone numbers.  If you have any pictures on the internet, you’ll want to do a reverse image search using google reverse image search or tineye reverse image search (both are available as extensions in the google chrome store for free).  You’d be surprised where you pop up on the internet. Many people search engines, such as spokeo, offer an opt out option under the “privacy” tab on the bottom of their page. It’s very small, so don’t miss it.

There are many ways to begin a search. If you have a name put it into quotation marks in Google search,  for example: “Your Name”

If you come up with results that are clearly not right, but share a common keyword, run another search this time with a minus (-) sign in front of the wrong word:  “Your Name” -delaware  .         This will exclude all the sites that have Delaware  connected to your search term.  You can also exclude entire websites by using the minus sign, such as:

“Your Name” -delaware  -blogger.com  -twitter.com

You can narrow your search results down significantly this way.

If you have an email, name, or telephone number just place it into Facebook‘s search box, any accounts associated with that email, given they are not private, will show up in the results. This also works with other social networking sites like myspace.com

You can also just put that information into Google search, of course.

Here are some good people searchers:

http://www.pipl.com

http://www.skipease.com

http://www.whostalkin.com

http://www.spokeo.com

http://www.keotag.com

http://www.publicrecords.onlinesearches.com

http://www.twoogel.com

http://www.socialmention.com

http://www.freeality.com

http://www.kgbpeople.com

New people search sites are always popping up and I’m sure that I missed a bunch, so if you have some good recommendations please leave it as a comment and I’ll add it to the list.  If one of these sites stops working let me know as well so I can remove it.
