I wrote this article in 2011, just eight years ago. Imagine how advanced the world has become since then. "They" are now so skilled, we can no-longer see them but be sure: They are still watching.
"I KNEW IT!!!!!! I was clicking channels with my remote and, for about 30 seconds I saw myself--watching myself--- on the TV SCREEN! Over a period of one year, the same thing happened two more times....once when my two grandchildren were watching TV with me. I was shocked all three times but I knew it had actually happened.
I reported the incidents to a technology friend and....he laughed. But a few years later, he called to apologize. He also said he was no-longer laughing and forwarded the verification article featured below. YES, Comcast is watching us through the "little black boxes" that are required for every TV in our homes. Even worse, we are charged for the very boxes used to spy on us !!!!!!!!!!!
Eight year ago, I shared my story on social media. I wasn't crazy then and I'm not crazy now. Never underestimate the power of the government. Today, the technology has become more advanced and is also being used on our computers and our cell phones. And you thought you were home ...alone. Smile for the camera!"
The article below was published in The Washington Times (one of the few news sources I trust) six years ago. Apparently, the Liberal Media chose to ignore it...possibly because they were paid by the government to hide it.
Cheryl K. Chumley reports for The Washington Times, June 17, 2013:
Cable TV companies have acquired a new technology that enables them to peer directly into television watchers’ homes and monitor viewing habits and reactions to product advertisements.
The technology would come via infrared cameras and microphones embedded in digital video recorders (DVRs) or cable boxes, which will enable the cable companies to watch and analyze viewers’ reaction (what they do and say) to televised ads. The cable companies then use the data collected to target specific advertisements to the particular household.
Rep. Mike Capuano (D-MA) and Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) have introduced a bill, the We Are Watching You Act, to prohibit the technology on boxes and collection of information without consumer permission. The bill would also require companies that do use the data to show “we are watching you” messages on the screen and to explain just what kinds of information is being captured and for what reasons.
The two Congressmen explain in a press release that “A patent application filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office by Verizon notes the technology could detect a range of viewer activities. According to the patent application, the set-top device will be able to distinguish ‘ambient action … of eating, exercising, laughing, reading, sleeping, talking, humming, cleaning’ and more.”
Congressman Capuano stated: “This may sound preposterous but it is neither a joke nor an exaggeration. These DVRs would essentially observe consumers as they watch television as a way to super-target ads. It is an incredible invasion of privacy. Given what we have recently learned about the access that the government has to the phone numbers we call, the emails we send and the websites we visit, it is important for consumers to decide for themselves whether they want this technology. Think about what you do in the privacy of your own home and then think about how you would feel sharing that information with your cable company, their advertisers and your government.”
For his part, Congressman Jones stated: “Allowing this type of technology to be installed in the homes of individuals without their consent would be an egregious invasion of privacy. When the government has an unfortunate history of secretly collecting private citizens’ information from technology providers, we must ensure that safeguards are in place to protect Americans’ rights.”
Current law is silent on these devices. The We Are Watching You Act will require both an opt-in for consumers and an on-screen warning whenever the device is recording information about consumers.
REMEMBER: I TOLD YOU SO!
NECROPHILIA'S COLD-HARD FACTS.
If you've lived all your life without knowing about NECROPHILIA, it's time you learned. You've surely heard of grave robbers who dig up the dead just to rob them of rings, watches, jewelry of any kind. The very idea of such intrusion makes me sick.
But---imagine beyond-sick people called NECROPHILES, who dig up the dead to enjoy their company--to make friends--to dress and un-dress them, AND.... to have sex.
In the early eighties, I had a talk-radio show in Little Rock, Arkansas. One day I received a call from a newspaper reporter/friend, asking if I wanted to join him at a Trailer Park outside North Little Rock to experience an exclusive story-in-the-making. Of course, always loving adventure, I quickly said "yes".
No one, not even the toughest among us, can prepare for the sight of dead bodies. I watched an old metal trailer door being ripped from its hinges as military police took possess of a crime scene.
Inside were the long-dead bodies of three women who, at the time of their deaths, were 17 years, 25 years, and forty-one years of age. The most-recent dead was a seventeen year old who had been laid-to-rest, ten months earlier. The twenty five year-old-female had been in her grave for five years before her long sleep was interrupted and she was found in this old, creepy trailer.
Inside, two of the women were lying naked on a bare mattress in the small trailer's only bedroom. The youngest woman was lying on her back in the bathtub. Her hair was wet, like it had recently been washed. Probably most bizarre to me...the woman's eyes were wide-open. The trailer's kitchen cabinets were crowded--not with food--but with boxes of condoms, bras and panties, nightgowns--even makeup and nail polish.
No one knew for certain how long the airman from the nearby Jacksonville Air Force Base had practiced his cold, deadly obsession for lifeless, female-playmates. Records showed he'd rented the Trailer more than 3 years earlier and none of the other residents suspected anything strange about his comings and goings....not even his wife or two children. Yes, he had a regular family, in another community, where he was considered a good husband, father, and a military service man with a flawless military record but...
I was hooked. I'd never experienced life at its creepiest/craziest and I needed answers. Several days later, when I introduced Necrophilia on my talk show, choosing to educate the public about its meaning (while carefully avoiding details of my recent encounter), The Station was bombarded by attorneys' calls, demanding I change the subject, immediately. It was clear I'd touched on classified information that the military deemed off-limits to the public.
I followed the case closely, wanting to know more about the airman, his family, and his eventual punishment. But, in spite of our persistence, neither my reporter-friend or I were able to "dig up" much more. We learned only that the trailer had been moved from its long-time address and...that the women were all laid-to-rest...again.. in undisclosed locations.
Years ago, as a married woman, nothing upset me more than to be wakened from a peaceful sleep....for sex. Being a dutiful wife, I seldom refused but....I still remember just lying there, feeling dead inside....much like a corpse.
So, to guarantee my eternal rest and uninterrupted sleep...I've elected to be cremated.
I'm repeating a post from last year.
ALL THE WALL-1990:
I was in a tiny village near The Great Wall, desperately searching for boiled drinking water and Chinese peanuts-- my only source of protein-- when I saw the very young Chinese boy in “split pants”.
The instant he saw me--a tall white-skinned woman wearing a large backpack with numerous bags hanging around my waist--he started crying hysterically. So frightened, so fearful of the stranger, the little boy ran in search of his grandmother, his caregiver.
I watched as the child’s grandmother scooped him up, sat down with him on her lap, and immediately put her hand between his legs. As the grandparent cooed and babbled in some rhythmic, sing-song dialect, she also stroked the little boy’s penis slowly, in a very-familiar manner.
Soon the little boy stopped crying and began to smile. Then, little by little, the young child laughed, ever-so- softly. In a few short minutes, the child’s eyes slowly closed and-- just-like-that-- he was asleep.
There were villagers everywhere--curiously eyeing me--all wanting to know where I’d come from; who I was; why I was in their village. They were all-around the grandparent and the child…but not even one was watching what the grandparent was doing to stop the child’s crying. No one was shocked to see a grandparent masturbating her grandson. No one, that is, except me.
For the rest of my Great Wall journey, I couldn’t stop thinking about what I’d seen. I was horrified to believe this was a common practice among Chinese. I must know the truth.
Almost five years later, when I returned to China as their first Communications Specialist, I learned the truth. Living among the Chinese People, I quickly saw that young Chinese couples gift their parents with the one- child-only….then become fulltime professionals with one goal—to make lots of money.
These young couples are parents in name only; traditionally, they're too busy to spend time raising a child. Their parents--the grandparents-- are responsible for raising the one-child-only because ....that’s what Chinese Grandparents do in their retirement years.
I never grew "use" to it but, looking around, I continued to see very young children—both males and females-- being masturbated in Beijing Parks, on street corners, even in McDonald’s! It was the accepted method for stopping tears, for ending emotional upsets, and the best method for putting a cranky baby to sleep. And, it was used by all Chinese Grandparents.
Yes, It's an ancient Chinese custom that's been passed from one generation to the next and…apparently…it's not considered sexual.
Even today... writing about what I saw in China… makes me very uncomfortable. Living in China for nearly ten years, I learned how vastly-different the Chinese Culture is when compared to American Culture.
There were many other customs/traditions I experienced in China, more I’ll write about in the future, and many-more traditions I can never accept. Nevertheless, the Chinese customs/traditions will never stop me from loving both the country and its people.
Who’s to say which Culture has it right?
