I’m going to revamp the blog a little during the summer. Plan on removing some things from the site like the GUNS AT WORK stuff since it only was pertinent to a small group of people.
As I watched some of the coverage of the released information that Plant Smith is closing its coal plants in April 2016, I wondered how some of those people that believe their air is going to be a lot cleaner, just how committed they are to cleaner air. Perhaps it’s time to really find out how committed the general public in the panhandle is.
As a Libertarian I am against more government but in the interest of those who really want clean air in the Panhandle, I think the state should implement the same Vehicle Exhaust Emmissions testing program that exist in Tampa and larger metropolitan counties in Florida.
For those unaware of this program, you pay a fee and go to a government testing station where your vehicle is inspected to make sure you haven’t modified the factory installed pollution. The vehicle is then hooked up to a computer that runs an analysis and test of the vehicle’s emmissions. If it passes, you’re good til next year. If it doesn’t you have so many days to get the vehicle repaired so it does pass and failure to do so get’s your registration pulled. You also cannot sell a vehicle that will not pass the test.
I’m sure many of you have been driving down Highway 231 or Highway 77 and been behind a vehicle that was spewing smoke and pollution. If you really care about air quality you should be in favor of getting these vehicles off the road.
Surely all those that are quick to blame others for their pollution footprint shouldn’t mind their own footprint being checked and corrected if it was out of line. That way we all have skin in the game for our air quality.
As I stated in several posts I have been spending most of my writing time devoted to writing fiction. I will continue to keep the blog open and post from time to time but not regularly. If you have enjoyed reading any posts on various subjects you may want to subscribe so you can get updates when there is a new post. I have a longer term project I plan to post about next. While the gun in vehicle topic was mostly only read by employees of GP, my next project should be of interest to people in general that live in the panhandle area. Stay tuned.
It seems that the CEO of Panera Bread has decided he doesn’t want his customers who legally carry firearms to bring them in his store.
As part of the No Guns No Money movement CCW holders and those that believe in your second amendment right to bear arms for your personal protection should boycott Panera Bread.
Armed Robbers take note, Panera Bread is now easy pickings for you.
The Federal Department of Justice signed a memo Thursday saying they would not prosecute Marijuana laws in states where Marijuana was legal. This obviously stems from states like Washington and Colorado telling the federal tyrant to go have sexual intercourse with itself.
The result is that the Tyrant knows it has no legal leg to stand on. So now it tries to appear benevolent.
What you as an American can take from this is that many other federal laws do not have any bearing if a state decides to legalize something the federal government has made illegal.
We’ve been lied to for so long about this and of course the public schools being nothing more than a way to indoctrinate people from a young age that the feds are all powerful, we felt like there was no way to challenge this overbearing Tyrant.
We now know the truth and we should be challenging any questionable federal code. This places more importance on your local state legislators. We need to elect representatives that are not federal patsies. I urge you to look at Libertarian candidates running in your districts. Libertarians have been standing up to this tyrannical federal government for years and years. They are best suited to put the federales in their proper place.
There is a chance to make a big change here, lets not squander it by being co-opted by the candidates the federal government chooses for you.
The past several weeks we have had many revelations about our privacy in the news. Since this blog began I have been railing about how the government has become fascist in nature and this is just another example. When a large US company and its executives begin talking about private public partnerships you had better be very suspicious. Oh they’ll mask it with some type of positive effect to cover up the other parts of it.
There have been stories about Internet providers turning over their customer’s data, google turning over data that your IP address has gone to on the web or searched for on the web. They have given access to your tweets, to your private photos on facebook and on and on. They have your emails, your telephone calls etc. and they have them stored. That’s right, they store them.
Now I’m sure the crowd that believes if you’re not doing anything wrong you needn’t worry about all this is shaking their heads and saying the government is making us safer. That’s the myth they want you to believe.
But you should be aware that should you challenge, say, a connected corporation or an ally of this fascist government, they could possibly silence you by using your own data against you. It’s not hard for the government to make you into something you’re not. It happens all the time if you open your eyes.
Edward Snowden was one of them. So were the other NSA whistleblowers before him. But once they blew the whistle on their bosses and pointed out they were breaking the law, well they are deviates, they are traitors, they have mental problems. It’s not hard to figure out that the first step in dealing with someone who is willing to step forward is to discredit them and their character.
And that leads us to smart meters. What do smart meters do for us, the general public? Absolutely nothing! What do they do for the utilities? They give them access and information they can sell and/ or give to the government about you and I. They were sold to the public as this bullshit smart grid that would somehow offer more security. Like most government programs the opposite is true. The analog meter that was on your house before was much more reliable. The electronics of the smart meter make it less likely to work with things like EMPs, solar flares etc. Once more the smart meters are basically a mini WIFI port and so, are able to be hacked. Check youtube or do some searches about hacking smart meters.
Who paid for those smart meters? You and I did through our taxes. Grants from the federal government were used to purchase them and give them to the utilities to install. This was done at a time when so called stimulus money was being spent and people were so hungry for jobs they didn’t question anything.
One need only look at CEOs of the various utilities to see they are also intimately connected to the government and heavily into politics. Look at the government subsidies many of these power companies receive. They get grants for various projects under the guise of cleaning the air. They get guaranteed loans to build new plants that normal investment experts would not touch as too risky because of cost overruns etc.
And what can the government do with this information? Well they can track when you are in your home, what time you leave, what time you go to sleep. What type of appliances you buy. When you use them. They can turn your electricity off remotely without having to set foot on your property to do so. With all this extra information the government can build a profile that may raise your taxes based on what devices you use.
For instance and of course this is just hypothetical, for now that is, suppose the internet explodes with anti government fervour even more so than now. With enough complicit politicians a new tax could be used to not only make you pay a fee from your internet provider but electricity to power any device in your home that you use to connect to the internet. It’s a back-door method to stop you from being an activist against them. It essentially becomes a way to control your behavior. Behavior that is acceptable for a slave.
Or perhaps you own a business the government does not like, or even more likely a business that some large corporation does not like because your business threatens their profits by offering people another choice. The two can collude to pass some type of tax or fee based on your electrical activity that will eat into your business expenses perhaps even making it impossible for you to compete and thus run you out of business.
I know, you’re thinking ole DTOM is crazy right? Well I admit as a writer of fiction I do have a vivid imagination. But those of us that are awake and there are more every day, understand how sinister our government and its corporate partners have become. By actually reading and researching the news rather than just swallowing what the corporate media feeds you without even a question, it’s not hard to understand fully the implications of having one of these meters on the sides of our homes and our businesses.
So what can we do about it? As customers of the utilities we can demand our old meters back.
If you choose to do this, be prepared for your eyes to get opened as the system balks at you having a meter they cannot connect to. They’ll fight you in various ways. First they’ll ignore you. I might note that I wrote an email to the power company about having my smart meter removed and got no answer. I also wrote to the PSC of Florida and got no response. Perhaps it’s time we all got a little louder on this subject.
I’m sure eventually if enough people make their point the companies will then try to dissuade their customers by telling them they’ll have to charge you more because of costs etc. And of course the government will make this possible for them as they are partners in this little spy operation which has potential to be very serious in the future.
Want your eyes opened? Write a letter to the power company and tell them you want your smart meter removed and exchanged for the analog meter they replaced.
Read carefully their answer, if they even bother to give you one.
If you live somewhere where your utility is regulated by the government and you get no satisfaction from the power company, then go to the PSC or similar department and register a complaint. I doubt you’ll have success here unless large numbers of people join you and even then I have my doubts. Tyrants do not give up power willingly and make no mistake, information about you is not only powerful but lucrative to the ones that have the information to sell or give to someone who can use it.
The best way to stop this on a large scale and not just the smart meters is to fire your congressional representative. Republican or democrat it doesn’t matter. Entice a libertarian or independent that places liberty and natural rights above all else to run for office and challenge the two collaborators who are running. Much of this that is being directed against the people could not be done if it wasn’t financed by us through those that we supposedly sent to represent us. If it’s not funded it just won’t happen. We need to put both parties on notice that we see them for what they really are and have become and we no longer will believe or fall for their spin. If we do that we can change the whole country for the better and get back to being free and living in a free country rather than a totalitarian police state which we are accelerating towards right now.
Will you finally join the rest of us and speak out and get active? Or will you be content to watch your favorite TV shows or sporting event as you gorge yourself with food and snacks that slowly turn you into a medical slave and eventually kills you. There comes a point where your decision to change and join the rest of us will no longer matter. Once you are fully enslaved and those that spoke out and resisted are gone, you will have no choice but to keep submitting. Any resistance then will be inconsequential to the machine as one fly is in a horse barn. Or to put it in terms you TV heads can understand, I quote the Borg, “Resistance is futile, you will assimilate”
Here’s a guy that did what heroes do, he risked it all. He could have kept his cushy 200,000 dollar a year government job and just kept his mouth shut. That’s what the tyrants and fascists in government and industry expect all of us to do.
Instead Snowden tossed it all away put a big target on his own self to be the next person that committed suicide by hanging or maybe shot six or seven times by the FBI for self defense even though he has no weapon.
My hat is off to you Mr. Snowden, you are a true American patriot and hero. It’s your detractors in our government that are the real traitors and someday I’ll be happy to watch many of them hanging from a noose.
