If the NSA reads my blog - does it show as a page count?
I don't think the NSA is reading my blog, but somewhere deep inside a secret location they are storing all the information transmitted by everyone in case they have to look it up for a terrorism case....really??? I love a good conspiracy theory, that is why I read Tim Clancy novels! The recent stories about the NSA and PRISM (don't you think they should tell us what it stands for – you just know it's an acronym!) are fascinating. Our leaders tell us they are not reading our e-mails and I think that is probably true...so far. I have my own theory about the need to collect information from all of us, tell me what you think......
.....In the not so distant future, the affordable care act won't be...affordable that is, but we will need it because we will have put the insurance companies out of business, this is not a bad thing everyone knows by this time that they were only in it for the money and never had our welfare at heart unlike the government that exists only to serve us. We will have learned that each of us has a responsibility to the others to be healthy, smokers cost us $6000 a year in lost time or health care, obese employees run up the cost for all of us. Now more than ever we will need the government to keep a watchful and benevolent eye on us, to protect us from the people who are too selfish to see how their behavior harms the rest of us, it is time to give the department of HHS the information from our grocery store discount cards. Think of the lives that can be saved if we could be monitored so that if we buy food that is not in our best interests we can pay a fine, or – even better – the clerk would just set aside the items that show up on the scanner as prohibited for each individual, (no more fudge bars!!!) then the information from our credit card (and debit at this point right?) purchases can be monitored to make sure that we are not doing things and going places that are not acceptable. Our facebook pages and e-mails will be scanned for words like chocolate or Pepsi! Some people will be secretive and treasonous and try to use cash to avoid the monitors but stores are already watching for that and reporting suspicious cash use. (Seriously it's on the DHS website 'those who use cash') Black market ranch dressing will hit the streets. There will be hold outs, those who had food storage and those who have gardens but we can find most of those with the drones and the treats that the government hands out for ratting out your neighbors homemade chocolate chip cookies! And of course if you don't go along we will just have you taken off the rolls, you won't have access to any health care providers licensed by the government, you will have to have 'back alley' appendectomies...
That doesn't even include the children telling all about their home life at school, toy gun 'buy backs' in CA, and prospective employers demanding access to your facebook page for a job interview. (Wait - nevermind - those already happened)
I'm kind of excited, I've birthed my own conspiracy theory! Kind of proud.
Next post is the 'one year of owning the house' before and after extravaganza! Keep your expectations reasonable please.
