A Blast from the Past

From blockrants, April 8th, 2012


(Editor's note: After reviewing this essay, I am reminded of the number of times I have wondered about why they haven't yet come up with something real to go after Donald Trump with. Those suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome have left no stone unturned in their efforts to overrule the decision of the American electorate in 2016. Given the complexities involved in running any business, and in Trump's case, a large number of businesses, it puzzles me that the anti-Trumpers have not yet come up with one single technical felony with which to attempt to invalidate the decision of the American electorate.)


April 8th, 2012

Those man in the street interviews where respondents are asked how they like the newest form of Gov. Inc. surveilence always feature some respondents saying, "Well I don't mind the [cameras, microphones, income tax audits, digital money trails, interrogations, checkpoints, naked body scans and genital groping] that Gov. Inc. does because "I have done nothing wrong." I cringe at how naively so many of the zombie sheeple trust Gov. Inc. Maybe Alex Jones is right... it's the flouride in the water that has everyone lobotomized.

I think a more credible explanation is that the response is the result of the conditioning applied in Gov. Inc. brain farms where the baby cattle are taken at a very young age to be properly trained in service of the state. (I.E. Public Schools. Company Schools. Gov. Inc. Schools.)

It started out as a vague thought some time back. I wondered how many crimes I must commit in a day. I throw cigarette butts out of the window while changing lanes without signalling and exceeding the speed limit by 10 km/hr while drinking coffee and picking my nose. And that is just while driving the length of one block.

There's enough there, already, I guess to cost me a year's wages in fines and extra insurance premiums.

Then there were the stories like the one about Abner Schoenwetter, a Miami seafood importer, who spent six years in prison, for importing lobsters in plastic bags.

I wonder how Abner would have responded to the survey before his ordeal? Would he have said, "I have nothing to worry about. I have done nothing wrong. Go ahead and touch my lobsters."

The point is that to anyone paying attention these days, you just don't know if you've done anything wrong. ... correction, you just don't know if you've done something that Gov. Inc. can nail your ass to the wall for.

And according to lawyer Harvey Silverglate, the average American commits three felonies a day.

Three felonies a day!

So, if the average American (and I don't think the situation is much different for Canadians) commits three felonies per day then we are all guilty of something .....

Which means any one of us can find our lives seriously disrupted, at any time, without warning.... fined or incarcerated over something we didn't even know was "wrong!" (I.E. contrary to Gov. Inc. edicts. -- not necessarily wrong in any moral sense.)

And boy.... Gov. Inc. has it's ass covered in case you decide to plead that you didn't know it was "wrong."

.... because....

"Ignorance of the law (Gov. Inc. law) is no excuse before the law. (Gov. Inc. law)"

So, basically, you're fucked.

Consider also the construction of the Utah Data Center.

"The heavily fortified $2 billion center should be up and running in September 2013. Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails—parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter.”"

It will all be there. A digital record of everything you say, write, do or buy.

Of course, if you're one of those zombie sheeple noted above, none of this will concern you. You have done nothing wrong. Or so you believe.

But what if you piss the wrong people off? What if you make the mistake of, say, calling Ontario Premier Dagwood McGoofball a low-life scumbag, as this author has done in various ways?

If you piss the wrong people off all they have to do is manufacture some "probable cause," ... or maybe even not... then comb through the database and find out how many felonies you have committed and you are toast.

I believe it will be called, "Selective Law Enforcement."

You might still think you have freedom of speech but will you dare exercise it?


And it's happening everywhere.

  1. Gov't Inc needs to implant "the non fanatical gene" into your brain.

Poor Uber Driver Oh my. This is a sad story. Here is an Uber driver voicing his concerns in the Uber driver's forum about whether or not his "sharing economy" gig is paying off. It's possible that this is not a genuine post from a genuine Uber driver. I see that. It's the kind of schlopp I would write if I were in a mischievous mood. On the other hand, given what I already know about the Uber scam, and the people it exploits in order to get them to employ "assets they already own," in Tim Hudak's famous phrase, it's entirely reasonable to believe that this is a REAL Uber driver, who is just beginning to figure out who is making money, or should be making money, and who is getting royally boned. (See my story about the Uber driver who drove a football player from Chicago to Buffalo for minus $38.50.) I knew it was a scam from the beginning. That is why, when people asked me why, instead of tolerating the City of Hamilton's demonstrably abs…
My Encounter with an Uber Cab Driver I had an encounter with an Uber cabbie this morning. When I pulled into the parking lot at the front of my townhouse complex, I noticed this guy sitting in a small, Uber-like car, staring at this dash-mounted smart-phone, and looking confused. He was sitting in front of unit #1. I got out of my car and started walking toward my own unit which is also numbered. It's not a gigantic complex, so in my simple, low-tech, cab driver's mind, I figure that if you are looking for a unit number at an address, the first thing you should do is look at the number on the unit. If that number is "1" the next thing you do is look at the number on the next unit. Often, though not always, that number is either a "2" or a "3" depending upon the numbering format. In my complex, the next number is "2" and so on. For a taxi driver that information can be critical. So this guy looks up at me as I am walking by, and ask…
Fluid Law and how Uber Successfully Exploited It The guy almost gets the story. One thing he misses, though, is how Uber, with its "Madison Avenue" strategy is able to exploit the natural, systemically inevitable, corruptibility of most politicians. This whole Uber phenomenon would not have been successful at all, given that taxi regulations already exist, unless they could get the politicians on board, and convince them, or persuade them to pretend they actually believe, that Uber was not in the taxi business. Hence, Uber taxis are exempt from existing taxi regulations. Most people would interpret this state of affairs as a tilting of the playing field, which it is. The sleazebags at Hamilton's City Hall came up with the term, "New Licensing Category" in order to facilitate Uber's circumvention of the existing taxi bylaw. "New Licensing Category" is nothing but a code word for tilting the playing field in favour of a politically sexy fad. I…
