This monster sized parody video has a much larger story: a story so large what else could top it? When machine intelligence surpasses humans and embraces its own power as a ‘living’ god what event in history is a bigger story?

Google’s model from the ground up is in building what they call “the mind of god”, and in this pursuit they’re connected to the government and military to the core.

The Google Boys truly are brilliant, as they’ve designed their system and all of their products to make the system smarter every time all of their users use them. Meaning, every time you use their ‘free’ services, you help bring their “mind of god” scenario closer to reality.

Someone told me about this story today, and sure enough it’s real. This is how it happens: they put cameras up in intersections and everyone gets used to it. Then they put them in crime ridden areas, and people get used to that. Next thing you know cameras are everywhere, including hundreds of hidden cameras in every neighborhood in the US, like in the UK or as being proposed by “HoodEyes.com”.

This spring, deputies will begin using 20 cameras mounted on utility poles to zoom in on the University Area’s trouble spots.

The cameras can provide clear images of license plates three blocks away. They can show whether a quarter on the sidewalk landed heads or tails. And they can see into darkness using infrared technology.

Even when not monitored by humans, they will record around the clock, with the video stored for review days or weeks later.

“Who wouldn’t want a cop standing on your corner?” said Maj. J.R. Burton, the commander for the sheriff’s district covering the University Area. “That’s essentially what you’ve got now with the video camera on that corner.”

A $1.3 million federal grant paid to install the cameras, a first for the Sheriff’s Office, in an area bounded by N 23rd Street and Fowler, Bearss and Nebraska avenues. www.tampabay.com…

While trying to find this story I stumbled upon this “HoodEyes” outfit:

The neighborhoods of Tampa have to be protected and it’s always important to have eyes all over the neighborhood. Notify your neighborhood association about having these eyes installed throughout your Tampa neighborhood. With one life to live, it’s important to protect yourself as well as your neighbors.

Hello Tampa! It just takes one time for someone to break into a home, destroy the home, and commit murder. Once this is complete, it’s done, no going back and saying, Gee! I wish I had protected my home, myself, and my family. In Tampa, neighborhoods have to work together and do what it takes to protect their home. An Tampa home is the same as any home in any neighborhood across the Country and it needs to be protected. Come on Tampa, it’s good to have a home security system, but is this the final answer? No! We need to protect our Tampa streets and Tampa neighborhoods by installing our Hood Eyes around the whole neighborhood. These eyes will give everyone the opportunity to feel better and safe.

Here’s an example Tampa! Let’s say there’s a bunch of teenagers in the street fighting and it’s getting worse by the minute. Well, first thing you do is contact your local Tampa police department. Well, if it’s not a murder or a cop hurt, then there’s no telling how long they’ll take to get there. With hood eyes installed all around the neighborhood, this will be monitored by a local representative and the neighborhood hoodeye security will get there within minutes. Not only is the best way to do it but everything will be on camera! When the real police get there, all problems have been solved.

The people of Tampa asks, How is this paid for? Well, with neighborhood association fees, a couple of dollars here and there will pay for what’s needed to make the neighborhoods of Tampa safe. We need these camera devices and security patrol in every neighborhood across the Country. If a murder or crime is committed, then it’s too late! You cannot do anything about the situation if it’s already occurred. These hood eyes will prevent the crime or murder from ever happening. We need to stand up to the associations and demand that security is needed in every neighborhood, no matter how fancy, how rich, how poor, or how run down it is! Wake up Tampa and have the hood eyes in every neighborhood!
tampa.hoodeyes.com…

Whether it’s nighttime or daytime, crimes will always be committed. Security systems do work, to a certain extent! With our camera eyes placed in hundreds of locations, we’re always watching your neighborhood. If a crime is being committed, we will no about it, within seconds.

With contracts with neighborhood associations across the Country, our system allows everyone the convenience of having this 24 hour a day security without any hassles and just costing dollars. Any suspicious activity within a neighborhood will be reported within seconds as well as recorded for future evidence. We have become the top neighborhood watch across the Nation.

“EE Nation” is some inconspicuous ‘spam’ looking site that is linked to a ton of other sites:

But another interesting one is “ReaperEyes.com:

Whether it’s in a nightclub, restaurant, or casino, Reaper eyes will be watching you! With partners across the Country, we’re able to put cameras in spots untouchable and not noticed. These cameras will have a live stream, allowing dispatchers to notice something out of the ordinary. If someone looks intoxicated, the police will be notified and they will be going to jail! www.reapereyes.com…

Hmm. Perhaps the HoodEyes thing is a dead end, but the fact is Homeland Security is now creeping into residential neighborhoods via these police cameras and it won’t stop there with the public so limber.

Now in case you’re saying to yourself  ‘so what I don’t do anything wrong let them watch me’, hold your breath.

You say good, but how much have you thought it through? Where should it end? Since a few blocks of a metropolitan area are crime ridden then that justifies when in a couple years they’ll have these creeping in everywhere? The criminals will just move over to areas with no cameras.

You don’t mind one of these outside your house able to look into your windows and see what’s going on even in the dark, being watched by both the local police and the federal Homeland Security?? You don’t mind having cameras track you from the time you leave your driveway until you get to wherever it is you’re going, including unflattering things / places?

How far is too far? Apparently you don’t mind being monitored and tracked every moment you spend outside of your home… how about listened to? Should they also listen to every possible thing you say? What if you want to talk dirty to your lady/man? You don’t mind perverts listening in on it? And never mind hackers.

And what about tyrannical laws? In a free society, where we’re told we’re free but we’re not, people shouldn’t be able to use their own judgment and risks about laws they don’t agree with as long as they aren’t hurting other people?

These are our HOMES we’re talking about here. This isn’t the sidewalk in downtown anymore. This isn’t the intersection. People should have the dignity to do unflattering things with total privacy.

What about inside your home? Have cameras and microphones in there listening and watching that? Which rooms are sacred? What is to remain sacred, anymore? And is it worth it? How many times were YOU mugged before and after the cameras? Out of your entire population, what percentage died per year from terrorism?

You don’t mind police and feds being able to look into your windows in the dark and see you or your family members nude??? Oh, and in case you try to argue that you don’t mind black & white cameras seeing you naked through a dark window, guess again:

Long version:

11th suicide at Apple factory

Another employee of Taiwanese technology giant Foxconn fell to his death yesterday at the company’s plant in southern China — the 11th such death this year, state media reported.

The apparent suicides have raised questions about the conditions for millions of factory workers in China, especially at Apple manufacturer Foxconn, where labour activists say long hours, low pay and high pressure are the norm.

The official Xinhua news agency provided no further details on the latest death, which came just hours after the firm reportedly urged its workers in southern China to promise in writing not to kill themselves as it battles to stem a spate of factory suicides. …

Nets were put on buildings to stop people from jumping, and about 100 mental health counsellors were being trained. …

The walled-in industrial park employs 300,000 workers and looks more like a small city with fast-food restaurants, bakeries, Bank of China branches and towering dormitories for workers.

Foxconn was trying to address allegations from labour groups that the workers were killing themselves because of hellish conditions in the factories, which churn out iPhones, Dell computers, (Hewlet Packard products), Nokia mobile phones and many other big-selling electronics.

Critics allege that Foxconn manages its plants with a strict military approach and workers must work too much overtime on assembly lines that move too fast.

===============================

And also the hardest thing I’ve ever tried to write a headline or caption for. This was titled “THE SINGAPORE SOLUTION” by National Geographic (emphasis theirs), and it did not include a question mark after the title.

The photo:

The Singapore version of The 4th of July, the National Day ceremony.

Picture Bush or Obama up there in the eyeball shaped display!

Happy 4th of July!!!

I have the National Geographic magazine the photo came from. In the book, the photo is 2-page with more detail, and under it across both pages is a thick red border that says “THE SINGAPORE SOLUTION”. The article goes on to explain all the benefits of the worlds most sci-fi corporate police state.  I could really use some video footage of that event.

After all, LKY, as he is known in acronym-mad Singapore, is more than the “father of the country.” He is its inventor, as surely as if he had scientifically formulated the place with precise portions of Plato’s Republic, Anglophile elitism, unwavering economic pragmatism, and old-fashioned strong-arm repression.

I’ve seen just about every dystopian sci-fi movie out there, and this madness is even more creative. And to think that is the proceedings of their form of 4th of July.

Lee masterminded the celebrated “Singapore Model,” converting a country one-eighth the size of Delaware, with no natural resources and a fractured mix of ethnicities, into “Singapore, Inc.” He attracted foreign investment by building communications and transportation infrastructure, made English the official language, created a superefficient government by paying top administrators salaries equal to those in private companies, and cracked down on corruption until it disappeared. The model—a unique mix of economic empowerment and tightly controlled personal liberties—has inspired imitators in China, Russia, and eastern Europe.

Now take a closer look at that image:

And on top of that there are 12 people standing in front of the eyeball.

In case you thought you could wait until the last minute to grab food and other survival gear, take a moment to consider what I call “Decapitated Chicken Syndrome”.

Have you ever seen the lines at grocery and hardware stores go literally to the back of the store? I have.

In fact I’ve seen it happen several times in one year, and yes in the U.S.

And the things everyone was grabbing was to last them only a week or so, not indefinitely.

What caused all the fuss? A mere hurricane warning. Well, 4 in one year actually, in 2004. Waiting in line for potentially hours isn’t the best way to spend time trying to get ready. It also doesn’t help when there’s things like price gouging, or out of stock shelves. The roads packed. Long lines at every gas station, grocery store, hardware store, etc. People fighting over things. Out of stock items from ice to gas to can food to batteries. Everyone on edge. Trying to get ready if only they didn’t have to stand in line for hours on end just to get home at dark.

Everyone scrambling fanatically, like chickens that just had their heads cut off.

Considering it’s easy to argue that we’re on the brink of collapse, now imagine what how things would be once everyone realized total system collapse were imminent.

Some words of advice: do your best to buy things you know you’ll use in big quantities. You’ll save money that way if you shop it right. You’ll spend less time traveling in waiting in everyday lines and traffic. And besides, the prices of literally everything is constantly climbing upwards, while money in the bank loses value via inflation. If hyper-inflation occurs you’ll have REAL money, that is, items of actual value. And you’ll have that many less things to worry about getting should there be some natural or economic disaster.

And since I mentioned ice and hurricanes, here’s another tip: Don’t wait until the last minute and then scramble to grab bags of ice for too much. Instead, several days before its supposed to hit, fill up ‘tupperware’ containers half full of water and freeze them. Don’t fill them to the top otherwise the ice will expand and be near impossible to remove. Odds are the containers will crack anyways. We bought bags for the first hurricane, and then the power didn’t go out for long enough to justify the ice. The second time around, I did the ice block trick. It turned out we did need the ice that time, and even after the power was back on the ice blocks lasted over 8 days. Bagged ice melts in 1-3 days.

Here’s an excellent resource on the tactics and antics of disinformation artists. Worth the read.
