Power to the People

Posted by PlanetGrok on March 11, 2010

I really, really hate traffic cameras. I have never gotten a real ticket, but those little red light cameras always get me.

When I get a picture of my transgressions in the mail, my vehicle is always in the process of clearing the intersection. I am not running lights that have been red for several seconds or more, I am trying to avoid slamming on my brakes and causing havoc. Besides the annoyance of having to shell out 170 bucks every couple of months, something about the Big Brotheresque potential abuse of these devices just really irks me. I’d fight these tickets in court, but the mandatory “court fee” charge and the time off I’d have to call off from work makes this option unappealing.

Fortunately, citizens have been fighting back:

Voters unplugged Steubenville’s traffic cameras in 2006. Ballots cast in Cincinnati banned the long lens of the law from that city’s streets two years later. Two communities outside of Columbus — Chillicothe and Heath — rejected photo enforcement last November.

Could Cleveland or another Northeast Ohio community be next?

A local campaign to oust cameras may be developing: “We’re prepared to make this an issue,” said Maryanne Petranek of Cleveland, vice chair of the 150-member Cuyahoga County for Liberty. “This is a case where people have to find their voice, stand up and say no.”

An organization called COAST has been behind the anti-camera efforts. Please take your hats off to these patriots in our midst.

If civil efforts fail, I also support those who vandalize these un-American spy devices.

In related government-watch news, Ryan Singel argues that the government has decided it hates the unfiltered freedom of the internet, and wants to clamp down.

Planet Grok is calling it now:  There will be a false flag “cyberwar” hacker attack on the US over the internet, and our government will use that as an excuse to pressure congress into “re-engineering” the internet. Don’t believe the hype.

New play explores impact of IQ enhancing implants

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 17, 2010

From Wired:

Wirehead goes live Saturday astride an intriguing premise: When an intracranial implant that boosts human intelligence becomes available to anyone with the money to pay for the surgery, rich people get superbright while poor folks get left in the dust. The IQ divide leads to the brink of civil war between resentful normals and the artificially enhanced “wirehead” class of geniuses.

Isn’t there already a significant IQ divide? The issue is not what a bunch of poortards will do (since they are dumb and not capable of much) it is whether smart people will feel guilty about being smart or not. I don’t think dummies watching Plies music videos will notice much if people already much smarter than them get even smarter.

Could IQ implants be proposed by white limousine-liberals for slavery reparations? Then just rich white folks and blacks will benefit, and the white masses will be screwed over…again. But at least racial acheivement gaps could be conquered!

Another reason not to use Blogger

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 13, 2010

Besides their predilection for deleting blogs they do not find politically correct, those Google boys are teaming up with the NSA for various unspecified activities. I’m sure the NSA was already partnered with them “on the DL”, (The CIA likes to do this sort of thing through In-Q-Tel)  so this kind of public announcement can only mean they are cooperating on a scandalously massive scale. Something that would cause outrage if it were to ever become known. Basically, Google is partnering with the NSA to spy on every single American.
