Scary technology

I'm about ready to drop off the grid and move to a remote part of Wyoming. I shudder to think where all this is leading.

When it popped up the 5th ad before I got past the 1st screen, I stopped reading.

I've been in so many of those handbaskets that now I don't bother about it any more. Wherever the handbasket is going, I'm going there too.

Not so much afraid, but angry I suppose. As I see it, with the initial orgs using technology against its own people, is a violation the spirit of the (U.S.) constitution and the Bill of Rights. I understand the giving up of freedoms for "security." But as ex-military and consultant to the department of defense, I also realise that security is a falsehood. As my father put it, "a locks only purpose is to keep an honest man honest".

Regards,
Robert

My deslider doesn't grok this slideshow, and I don't do slideshows. Anyone care to list the worrisome items?

It's a no-brainer. We just need to take it to the next level to turn this into a win-win situation. The best practice is to get rid of the low-hanging fruit first. Ping me with an agenda so we can go flag up on this thing
