What’s In A Key Stroke or MSM, Edward Snowden is the National Story, Not Trevon Martian
Imagine hitting two to three keys on your computer and you can read anyone’s email, or look at the transcript of their phone calls. Just think your having personal call with your wife or significant other and others are listening in just because they can. That is what has been happening in the offices of the NSA.
Now there are those of you saying, if they are eavesdropping on me and reading my emails they are not getting much excitement. That might be true for some, but it’s what they can do with that information if the decide to come after you. Seeing how we do not live in the freest country, as the propaganda would have you believe, they can take parts of a conversation or an email and totally incriminate you. I see people jumping up and saying, they can’t do that it’s against the law, it’s not right. Surprise, they can and they have.
Lawmakers defending the NSA’s tactics of spying on U.S. citizens are using the scare tactics which brought us, The Patriot Act and Presidential Directive 51. Not to mention hundreds of other lesser known Bills, Orders, and Directives. If I had a nickel for all the times they have tossed 9/11 and how sucking up all of our rights is protecting us from another one, I would be on a permanent vacation.
They keep telling the people, if they had this in place before 9/11/2001 they could have intercepted phone calls and emails that would have prevented 9/11. If you think they were not spying on us before 9-11 I have swamp land in Florida I want you to buy.
As most know, Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the NSAs’ spying on its own citizens. (I phrase it that way because, more people know the color of Trevon Martians’ eyes than know who Edward Snowden is, or why he is held up in a Russian airport.) I have said this many times, but here I go again. “The Trevon Martian murder trail was not in any shape or form a national story. It was a local, or regional news event at best. Edward Snowden is National, the handling or lack of handling of the Libyan Embassy is National News.” Sorry for the rant, but it has to be said.
This Is Why We Are Here
This morning as I was pouring my coffee, I heard a tease for a story coming up after the commercial break and it caught my attention. It seems that Pennsylvania House Bill 359 which will ban smoking in a motor vehicle while a minor is in that vehicle has reared it‘s ugly head again.
After doing some research this is the same Bill that came up in 2009, and got the same reaction from me. At that time I was a smoker, however I feel the same as I did then. If you smoke with a child in the car you are stupid. Knowing what we know now and was also known as far back as the end of the 19th century smoking has ill affects. The affects of secondhand smoke is not totally known because of too many variables.
Now with that said, to write legislation and to pass these stupid laws should get you removed from office. If you want to regulate the people of the country in every move they make, we need to kill the Constitution, The Bill of Rights and let Communism be the rule of the country.
I say this because, in that same story two teens said they feel that the people are not making the right choices and that the government needs to step in and make those decisions for them. If you are saying to yourself, that is only a few, think again. I my research over the last 13 years I have found that more and more the youth of this country and others feel this way. Why do they feel like this? Well, that is another blog entirely.
Hey at least we are in good company, because on June 13 of this year Russia put a smoking ban in place.
Moscow: Russia’s ambitious smoking ban, which aims to cut the number of smokers in half and improve public health, went into effect on Saturday amid doubts that its measures can be fully enforced.
The first stage of the so-called anti-tobacco ban makes it illegal to smoke on buses, trams and other municipal transport, at railway stations and airports, on lifts and bus stations, near metro and rail stations, in administrative buildings and at education and health facilities.
From June 1, 2014, the ban will be stepped up to also include ships, long-distance trains, train platforms, hotels, cafes and restaurants — places where Russians still smoke plentifully. Cigarette advertising and sales will also be curbed significantly.
So Comrade the next time you say, they are just things that we can do without, or I am not doing anything wrong it doesn’t effect me remember: The Nazi Party and Hitler did similar things.
The National Socialist leadership condemned smoking and several of them openly criticized tobacco consumption. Research on smoking and its effects on health thrived under Nazi rule and was the most important of its type at that time. Adolf Hitler’s personal distaste for tobacco and the Nazi reproductive policies were among the motivating factors behind their campaign against smoking, and this campaign was associated with both antisemitism and racism.
The Nazi anti-tobacco campaign included banning smoking in trams, buses and city trains, promoting health education, limiting cigarette rations in the Wehrmacht, organizing medical lectures for soldiers, and raising the tobacco tax.
So when you think the government should step in and regulate or ban something take a step back and look at it, maybe you will rethink it.
