Your comment about surveillance brought to mind a situation. I was sitting in a casino pulling on a one armed bandit in Vegas next to what looked like a six foot deep freezer. Along came on of those girls that walk around the floor and hand out Corona's to the players. She came by me, took out a key and opened this freezer next to me, much to my amazement. When I looked down into it, I said, "HOLEY CRAP!" That whole freezer from top to bottom was stacked with bills, buckets and buckets of money! Several million so I was told. She laughed when I said that and told me right above my head were cameras encased in the floral ceiling artwork, and we both could be assured someone was watching our every move, and every coin I put in the machine. They even knew how much money I spent in the casino that night. One wrong move on her part or mine and security would be behind us in seconds. As I walked around the casino there were all kinds of hidden cameras everywhere imaginable, and you couldn't see a thing. Gave me the creeps to think someone was spying on me and I didn't know where it was coming from.
We can only imagine today where we are being videoed by the long arm of the law. Someone was telling me that they can sit outside a house and pick up the chatter inside, then run it through a decoder and clearly get the conversation - it also works with lip readers. Spying on American's is now becoming a way of life, and I pity the next generation when we are all gone. They will never know the America we did.
I smiled as I read this because I recall how many years ago this surveillance in casinos came into existence!! I've been reading some of "New Science" articles which have blown my mind. I have to tell you it is much more far reaching than you or I could even begin to imagine. They have a tiny robot the size of a fly that can collect info, They have so much that would blow the mind of the average citizen to know.
All that crap we use to see in movies is real. It is what is going on today as we speak.
I don't know how many of you have noticed helicopters flying over your house but it has become a regular occurrence at mine. LOL. I've seen them armed with the big guns sticking out! Now, if someone could explain to me why the heck I see so many flying right over this house we bought out here in the country, then I'd be all for listening to that insight. Because it makes no sense to me that all these copters would be flying over my house. Am I the enemy ?
I certainly shouldn't be considered the enemy but dang....you have to wonder what the heck is goinon ya know?
