UPDATE: Due to this BS thing where I can do everything with this blog except publish a post, I have moved home to Wordpress: http://ncnblogger.wordpress.com/ (this will remain as an archive and be damn sure I will still read all your wonderful blogs as ever). Those who have linked me please update the link. Thanks all. Looking forward to continued blogging in the future.

Today's news is that Osama is dead. Well it's sort of 10 year old news, but there you go. Supposedly one of the very mind controlled special forces shot him in the head, although given the notorious nature of the invading forces' willingness to kill someone then play dress up afterwards, who knows it may have been a woman who they drew a beard on with marker pen. Photo looks 'shopped but what do I know. Then again corpses just like your TV dinner keep very well in the freezer...lol...


Anyway I'm off to get kidney dialysis using only sand and donkey piss while being hunted by all the satellites and spy planes that a trillion dollar military budget can buy, for ten years. Ciao

PS does this mean the war on terror is over now and 'we' can come home and dismantle the police state and not have RFID passports and iris scans and creepy wiretaps anymore? (Comptroller says no)

The Scanner Says You're Guilty, Sir...

...You're gonna have to be detained and searched...

BBC - Mobile scanner could detect guns

...What's that? Are you resisting the will of the LAW? Taser! Taser! Taser!

British scientists have developed a portable microwave scanner to help police identify individuals carrying concealed guns and knives.

It is small enough to be used covertly, at some distance from the subject. The device is based around microwave radar technology and is designed to pick up the "reflections" of weapons concealed beneath clothing. Some officials believe technology like this could help increase the effectiveness of stop-and-search.

The existing prototype is suitable for the detection of guns, but researchers say subsequent versions of the technology will be able to identify concealed knives as well. The new device employs low-power microwaves to identify weapons, using similar wavelengths as the body scanners currently in use at a number of airports.

However, Professor Nick Bowring from Manchester Metropolitan University, who led the development of the new device, said it worked on a different principle. Unlike airport scanners, the portable machine does not produce an image of the subject, it only analyses signals.

"It is designed to work out on the streets and is not (restricted) to a closed, controlled environment," Professor Bowring told BBC News.

A human operator will transport the device, using it to direct microwave emission at a person of interest. Return signals - microwaves reflected back towards the device - are picked up, sensed and analysed.

"[The scanner] does a lot of computing and processing of the signals it acquires. It puts them all together, analyses them over a short period and makes a decision," said Professor Bowring.
"It works on the principle that the radar returns from people, when they are carrying a gun or a knife, look different. And we pick up on those small differences."

For the purposes of writing this I will presume these things actually WORK. It seems likely to me that the scanners would read padlocks, keys, coins, anything metal as being weapons. If I'm mistaken about that then so be it. But I digress.

Firstly, this is a perfect example of incrementalism in which the airport and airline security fears have been exploited to get people accustomed to being searched without reason. But don't worry, "if you're not doing anything wrong you've got nothing to hide". Right?

Second, as I illustrated above, it's obvious that these kinds of technology further erode what illusion of rights we still have in the face of Law Almighty; guilty until proven innocent and such.

And if you don't like it, what you gonna do, boy, we own you.

Scary... Whether it's a knife or a gun, I always carry something. And I am VERY responsible, too. It scares me that this technology may come to the United States of America. Let me know how its going, AdamS

I also forgot...

They can Stop and Search my nuts. I can't believe how bad things are getting. Keep exposing the things for us to be looking out for, AdamS...

Can we spell "Orwellian"? :)

Good post!

You should see what bluepitbull put on his blog post about spying since our little argument, which is apparently still going on.

I durst not write about it on my blog, lest I hurt his feelers or"misrepresent" him.

Thank you for the comment you left on my post!

Don't you think it's so funny that the "adult" in this conversation, an Army vet no less, ran away and pouted, stopped following my blog, made false accusations about straw men, then whined about me calling him a sheep? (Which I didn't think I did.)

I believe remaining a follower of his blog will "heap coals of fire on his head".

Plus, I like to keep my friends close...

NoV: It seems London is the no.1 location for trying out new police state stuff before inflicting it on the rest of the world.

I'm just glad I live hundreds of miles away! :)

Son: Already read what he had to say. It's a shame, but what's important is that it's not really him speaking; just his conditioning. He knows not what he does :(

Undebunkable Chemtrails Video That The "Debunkers" Ignore...

...and yes, Chemtrails interfere with weather

(but why they are used, no-one fully knows...)

And You Tell Me There's No Suppressed Technology?

It's another of those 'conspiracy theories' that good citizens don't notice. Imagine the standard of living if all the secret technology was released to the public...we'd be "free and independent" as JFK said! No more poverty anywhere! Can you imagine being sick enough to withhold such technology from society just to maintain your position of control? (Bearing in mind that we don't know just how much technological capability is being withheld, because, duh, it's secret.) What did Nikola Tesla really develop?

Individual Liberty? But that's "selfish"!

No, we need to look after each other voluntarily without having a government do all that at gunpoint. Sounds absurd at first but soon you realise that the reason it sounds so is because of the very unfree nature of our current existence. Envision greater possibilities! Ok, some kind of massive wake-up would be needed before this kind of free, responsible, uncontrollable society could emerge. And that's what we are seeing day by day in the world - a massive waking up of the previously enslaved masses (including myself I must add!)

I'm Already Against The Next War
Stop the propaganda before it's here. If some kind of terror attack happens in the West, Iran probably didn't do it. They have no history of imperialism and would be suicidal to attack the West. Think who benefits. No bombing of Iran.
