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 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.

Random Password Generator Tool


I laugh when I hear about hacked accounts and their username/passwords.   It seems like a favorite of many network administrators is to use:

username: admin

password: admin or adminroot or password or administrator or roottoor

They also love to use terribly easy to find data such as their last name, graduation year, kids birthdays, pet’s name, last 4  digits of their social security number

why not just use 123456 as your password?  Why not just use the same password on all of your sites for that matter.

Even basic email services tell you to make a strong password, using a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols.  Don’t use words from the dictionary as those are indexed already in most  password crackers.  And of course use a different password for each site you visit, making sure you change the password according to your specific needs.    A person with a high security clearance or that is privy to sensitive data may want to change passwords every couple of weeks, but not on a strict schedule as that could draw attention to a routine.   For the average person using a low risk site, every 3-4 months should be sufficient. There are no guarantee’s of course.  If you are alive, your information could be stolen, used, changed, deleted….  We have to keep a close eye on our presence in the world today.

Love, sex, god, and secret are out since they don’t contain enough characters/symbols/numbers. Sorry Hackers via 1995.

http://strongpasswordgenerator.com/

The generator recommends 15 characters for a password.  I randomly generated this password (which I am not using):  ]2,%Pj4x(a”85]+

Another thing I do not like are password recovery questions.  They are often questions that one could find on public data sites, such as your mother’s maiden name, city of your birth, high school mascot, first car….  easy enough questions to find for the dedicated searcher.

I also disagree that adding your telephone number enables more protection.   The more information about yourself you give out, the more vulnerable you will be!  That’s just common sense.  Telephone numbers are extremely easy to find and if it is a current phone number, chances are it is linked directly to your home address.  Most sites that use telephone numbers as verification will not accept i.p. or sip based telephone numbers, such as Google Voice,  Skype, SendHub, etc.  Change your telephone number every once in awhile for good measure.

Or you could just buy a new identity on the black market.  I’m kidding.

Conspiracy Generator


These days you can’t turn on the t.v., browse the web, read the paper (do people still do that), leave the house or drink a glass of water without the word “conspiracy” finding its way to you.   I don’t  know how I found this generator, but you simply fill in the blanks and hit enter and you get a conspiracy.   It’s mildly entertaining.

theory

“Why can’t anyone see that chuck norris is being watched by Costa Rica? It’s all so that NSA, hidden in a secret HQ near akron, ohio can poison the ocean. After that, Costa Rica will give everyone ebola when the disorder caused by NSA reaches a peak. The only thing we can do is let a stray dog put together a militia to stop them.”

 

Try it out, it’s fast and stupid.

Gender Guesser Tool


I found this online tool hilarious.  It’s Hacker Factor’s “gender guesser”.  You add a block of text (at least 300 words) and it returns a guess on the gender of the writer of the text.  I don’t know why I would have a use for this, but someone might.  Usually you can tell someone’s gender after 300 words without ever looking at them or knowing what sex they are.   I guess if you were talking to someone online that said they were a man, but their words were written in the style of a female you may want to use it.   But the results aren’t perfect.

These are the results I got:

Genre: Informal
Female = 514
Male = 706
Difference = 192; 57.86%
Verdict: Weak MALE

Weak emphasis could indicate European.

__________________________________

Genre: Formal
Female = 617
Male = 446
Difference = -171; 41.95%
Verdict: Weak FEMALE

Weak emphasis could indicate European.

__________________________________

Well I guess I should contact the “hackers” at hacker factor because their tool was incorrect.  Informally I’m neither a dude nor European.   Formally, they were correct about my gender, I am a female, but still not European.   I definitely do not speak the queen’s english.

If you decide to try it out, leave a comment for me so I can laugh.

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.

Anagram Fun.


An anagram is a type of word play, the result of rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once (wikipedia).

I have found a particularly strange anagram maker that seems to reflect a part of your personality.  This could be a strange coincidence, but perhaps the name given to us at birth does shape us more than we think.

http://deanjackson.dj/nameanagram/

Type your name into the box (first, middle, last, nickname, a combination…) and press enter.  Now put the answer you get back into the box and hit enter again.  What did you get?  Do either anagrams remind you of yourself?

Let’s look at some famous names:

Charles Manson: OR, MEN CAN SLASH  and HARM CLEAN SONS

Marilyn Monroe: IN LORE, MY NORMA and I MARRY LOON MEN

Ludwig van Beethoven: UGH! NEW, INVOLVED BEAT and VIENNA VET WHO BUGLED

Adolf Hitler: RILL OF DEATH and DEATH FOR ILL

Diana Princess of Wales: FELON WAS PISSED IN A CAR and POW! A LASS DIES IN FRANCE

Walt Disney: WINDY TALES and I LEWD, NASTY

William Henry Gates: THE MARGINALLY WISE and REALLY WIN THIS GAME

Howard Stern: WONDER TRASH and SWORN HATRED

Michael Jordan: IDOL CAN JAM HER and JAM ON! RICH DEAL

Neil Armstrong: MR. STRONG ALIEN and NO GIRL STAR MEN

Barack Obama: ABACK A RAMBO and AMOK CAB ARAB

Mitt Romney: MY! MERIT NOT and MY! I’M ROTTEN

So you see, these are just a few…

Try your name and try other names, i’d love to hear what you get or if its accurate.
