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 ?????

infothread.org: Infographics That Are Fun


The internet is so huge sometimes we become overwhelmed at all the information provided.  I found a site awhile back that has given me so much information on many different topics.  It’s great for when you are bored, talking to friends, chatting at a cocktail party,  blah, blah, blah.

It’s called infothread.org informations sorted into categories on random subjects from fashion to military to photoshop to advice to history to paranormal…and everything in between.  It has over 10,000 infographics: A graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge. These graphics present complex information quickly and clearly, such as in signs, maps, journalism, technical writing, and education.

Your Personal Data In Your Pictures


With the recent capability of every smartphone and digital camera‘s to take a decent picture, everyone is snapping and sharing without thinking too much about it.. hey if you don’t associate your name or email with it no harm done right?  Wrong.  A digital picture contains a lot of information called exif data.  This data is recorded when you take a picture and then again if you upload it to a computer and more data is added if you run it through a program like photoshop.

basic exif data includes:

  • Date and time information. Digital cameras will record the current date and time and save this in the metadata.
  • Camera settings. This includes static information such as the camera model and make, and information that varies with each image such as orientation (rotation),aperture, shutter speed, focal length,metering mode, and ISO speed information.
  • A thumbnailfor previewing the picture on the camera’s LCD screen, in file managers, or in photo manipulation software.
  • Descriptions
  • Copyright information
  • every step you used to edit it in photoshop, this is shown as certain codes, but decipherable using a basic web search.

While this data is okay if you want to see what a person did to take a particular image, some people may want to hide this information.. you know, trade secrets.

Now to the darker side.  Newer devices may have geolocation data on them.  The built in GPS on some devices will automatically add the exact coordinates of where the picture was taken.  This information can be easily extracted using certain tools online.  Most picture hosting sites will scrub this data for you automatically, like facebook, flickr, tumblr, etc.  But if you sent a photo through an email the exif data would still be there. In the wrong hands, this could be dangerous. You can also edit the data using the tools below:

Here you can check photographs exif data online: http://regex.info/exif.cgi  (google chrome extension also available)

and here you can do even more with your pictures of exif data (downloadable freeware):  http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/

Protect yourself as much as possible.
