Digital “I see you”

If you are, like most Mellinnials, addicted to your digital life, you are oart of the Government ‘Digital Archipelago. You believe that the (any) government is benign. If so then what color is the sky in your world.

Oh, it WAS a “test” all right, just not what you thought was being tested…from Rico

Understand that I am not a Luddite.

– I use technology that works for me [e-mail; internet], but try to avoid technology that enslaves me and puts me into the digital control grid of Big Brother [read: the digital gulag of any device called “smart”].

With the understanding that anything that can be digitized is databased, but without digressing into facial recognition, biometric data, shared social media information, and the implications of China’s “social credit” program as a digital governmental control mechanism, we’ll discuss here only that FEMA test alert from the other day.

The FEMA Alert Test.
– It WAS a “test” but less a test of the emergency broadcast system than of the ability to know where you are, and who you are.

– The implicit message is “we can find you.”

Doubt me? Here’s how it works:

– FEMA has co-opted the E911 chip in your smart phone and can access it at will.

– This gives them access to everything on your phone (phone logs, social media, texts, e-mails, photo’s) and control of every function on your phone (camera, microphone, etc), plus your location.

– You cannot disable, block, uninstall, or opt out.

Such a deal!

– How “smart” is it to trade convenience for digital slavery?

Yeah, living in the “SMART” digital world isn’t as nice as the announcer tells you it is, when they want you to be on smart’ circuitry. The power of the government can only be expressed in levels of pain.

Think not? Ask any individual from a Soviet Bloc country who is now free of them. Ask about living the Gulag lifestyle..
Ah, they’re just making it up, right Snowflake?

Here goes another candidate’s chance…

…at a SCOTUS appointment.

When will they ever learn to avoid a #MeToo moment.

Idiot’s Corner

The likes of Ms. Cortez and other communists running around with a coterie of Snowflakes in an adoring train, can’t explain this:

All their gibberish about how wonderful Communism is pilloried on reality’s post.

The Millennials

For whatever reason, this group cannot figure out that there is no difference twixt Communists and Fascists. It has to be due to their ‘education‘.

Socialism, what difference does it make?…from Rico

What difference does it make?
– They’re ALL “Socialists”…
Nazi’s (National Socialists) were not Marxists, but:
– Marxists are Socialists
– Nazi’s are Socialists
– Democrats are Socialists

Different gang colors and insignia, but they are ALL Socialists.

– Who in their right mind would follow Socialism, much less vote for a Socialist? Oh, guess I answered my own question…

The Millennials

With the idiocy expressed by the Snowflakes, Millennials and the other outre groups, one has a difficult time understanding just how stupid these groups are. There must be nads in their logic circuits. Looking around the world, all examples of Socialism exhibit failure. Cuba, Zimbabwe, Venezuela and a host of African countries.

These fools always envision the top photo, never the true existence of the bottom photo.

When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez touts Democrat Socialism one has to wonder how her belies the idea that everyone is equal, equally poor.

How she’ll afford all that when her programs will cost about this.

When asked about these discrepancies, the questioner becomes a racist, bigot, homophobe or more foul a person, a Capitalist.
For someone who purportedly has a degree in economics, she should have a solid answer to how paying for this is possible. Of course the real answer is you can never pay this freight.

The Millennials

Today, preventing crime is something all need to do. Anti-theft devices help in that goal.

Americans grapple with recognizing facts in news stories: Pew survey

Only a quarter of U.S. adults in a recent survey could fully identify factual statements – as opposed to opinion – in news stories, the Pew Research Center found in a study released on Monday.

The survey comes amid growing concerns about so-called fake news spread on the internet and social media. The term generally refers to fabricated news that has no basis in fact but is presented as being factually accurate.

Facebook Inc , Alphabet Inc’s Google and other tech companies have recently come under scrutiny for failing to promptly tackle the problem of fake news as more Americans consume news on social media platforms.

The main portion of Pew’s survey polled 5,035 adult Americans aged 18 and above in February and March. The study was intended to determine if respondents could differentiate between factual information and opinion statements in news stories.

Participants were given five factual statements such as “spending on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid make up the largest portion of the U.S. federal budget,” and five opinion statements such as “democracy is the greatest form of government.” They were asked to identify which ones were factual and which were opinions.

Only 26 percent were able to correctly identify all five factual statements. On opinions, about 35 percent were able to correctly identify all five statements. Roughly a quarter got most or all wrong in identifying facts and opinions, the research showed. [snip]

“There is a striking difference in certain Americans in distinguishing what are factual statements and what are not and that depends on one’s level of digital savviness, political savviness,” Amy Mitchell, director of journalism research at Pew Research Center, said in an interview.

The study also found that when Americans call a statement “factual” they overwhelmingly also think it is accurate. They tend to disagree with factual statements they incorrectly label as opinions, Pew said.

The research showed Republicans and Democrats were also more likely to think news statements are factual when the statements appeal to their side, even if the statements were opinions.

The largest part of this problem arises from the fact that most younger persons are taught what to think not how to think. Regardless of our political biases (we all have them) one needs to know the difference twix beliefs and reality. Leaders in the military learn rapidly to discern between what someone would like to do and what they actually CAN do.

To quote Dirty Harry, “A man has to know his limits”.
