Government now connected to you by cell phone. Yippee!
From time-to-time, we pick up new and intriguing ways the government plans to creep into our lives and we will share them with you here.
Did you know that the FBI can listen in on your cell phone conversations? The only way around it is to take the battery out. Global Research says law enforcement has a big blank check to spy on everyone. They can tap into and modify your phone, determine your location within feet, and turn your phone into a microphone they listen to. The intention is to catch criminals.
President Obama said he trusts everyone who runs the government spying program. He even had the NSA investigated to make certain the government wasn’t doing any out-of-control spying. Of course the NSA people did the investigation and it was conducted in secret.
In New Mexico, parents can now count on the government talking to their children about the birds and the bees via text, courtesy the New Mexico Board of Health. According to Las Cruces Sun-News, the government in New Mexico feels the need to be connected to your children by text if they have pressing questions about sex. The program is called ‘BrdsNBz.’
There is always that little problem of political agendas entering into the answers they give. Parents might not want to abrogate this responsibility if they want personal responsibility to be part of the conversation.
I read about the ‘BrdsNBz’ right after I downloaded my new software for my smart phone. I found something new thanks to the software – a control panel linked to the government. Yay! It includes Amber Alerts and Emergency Alerts. The emergency alerts come directly from the office of the President of the United States. What more could I ask for even though I didn’t ask for it. I don’t mind Amber Alerts and maybe not even Mr. Obama’s emergency alerts but I would have liked to have been asked before it was put on my phone. Messaging can be turned off – for now.
As government grows larger, it will become more obtrusive and in our faces. It’s not innocuous if it’s everywhere and people begin to rely on it instead of themselves. There is always that little thing called privacy too.
