Robo-calls, Part 2

I have placed emails to the representatives.  I encourage all who read this to do that as well.  Let’s take this by storm!

Comments welcome!

“Hello! You have recently…”

No, I have not “recently.”
Robo-calls.  I think I need to start writing to government to get rid of them, take a stand, whatever.  Day and night the phone rings.  At least it doesn’t wake me up in the middle of the night, but come on!  I work and I see a “local” call, and it’s a robo-call from a female robot voice, who claims I recently visited at their resort.  I was at no such resort.
Remember the days of the unlisted phone?  You wanted to get rid of an annoying person.  It cost a little more, but an unlisted telephone number was a blessing.
Now, you have to block the number.  The robot finds another number to call you from.
Help me, join in my pursuit.  Let’s get rid of the robots!


The Phone Call

Every night.

Same time.

Same caller.

“Please dial this number immediately as … ”

Go ahead. Fill in the blank: health care updates, your college loan, your computer is at risk, etc.

I tried answering. I finally got one person to stop calling, they said.

There is no rest. Computers dial us randomly. Definitely a sign of our times.

Do you remember the old days? If someone bugged you, you simply changed your telephone number and/or made it unlisted. The worst case was the party line, and you had to wait your turn and hope no one was relating an entire soap opera, or two star crossed teenagers were breathing into the receiver!

There really ought to be a law! You think?


World of Terror

A long time in speaking up.  Fear of people thinking I’m too radical.  Too shallow minded. 

Freedom of speech in hand, I want to say this: “why are tourists allowed to go to hostile countries?”  I think that, until situations change, no one should be allowed to travel into a hostile country.  It is a sad thing that Otto has lost his life.  But a very foolish thing for our government to allow tourists the ability to travel into a hostile country.  We are asking for trouble.  Guidance is needed.  Why are we setting ourselves up for failure, for loss of life?  

We have to show wisdom and discernment.  Is this a good experience or a bad one?  Are my actions in keeping with their culture, or am I putting myself (and possibly others) at risk?  

Be careful Americans.  Know what you’re getting into.  We have to take care of ourselves!


A Case of Rip Van Winkle

Did anyone see 60 Minutes last night?  There was this great article regarding our smart phones and an interview with a millenial about programming our brains, needing assurance that there are people out there paying attention to us.

Here is the link. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/brain-hacking-tech-insiders-60-minutes/

I’ll say no more, let the article speak for itself!  Let me wake up from my sleep, like Rip Van Winkle, and understand our world.  Now I know why the pings from my followers are so important to me.  And to you.

 


America???

I’m very worried.  The news media has taken over the country.

I am not racially motivated, I believe I equal rights for all. I’m worried right now about who has paid off news media regarding racial issues.  Many innocent people are targeted, from citizens to police officers. The media is promoting this violence.  Violence is not new in America, or any other country, but to suddenly highlight violence against race, target law enforcement officials (and yes, all are not good, but then, all are not bad, either).

This is step 1, I believe, to government corruption: news media controlling the populace, you and me.  Some of you think it’s unjust.  The some of me think that this is a fear tactic and a way for government control of the US population.  Don’t buy it.

Edward Snowden, where are you?

Life In These United States

A rather frightening world is emerging while we Americans stand by and watch.  In my thoughts about the random violence here in these United States, my thoughts turn toward the Middle East.  I’ve been to the Middle East twice.  School children and their teachers carry military weapons in Israel when on field trips (and maybe other times, but I saw this first hand in 1979).  Obviously for protection, just in case.  Often I’m sure has been the case when they came in handy.  I’m wondering if life in these United States will become like the Middle East way of life.  No one is safe.  Radical religious groups have surfaced and created violent lifestyles over the centuries, it’s the norm there.

We used to feel safe, here in these United States.  We are across the pond from violent tendencies.  But now the violence has followed us, it’s not only entering our shores, it’s crossing our borders, and it is emerging from the tumors beneath the surface.  It has taken people without direction, and given them “just cause” for senseless violence.

Where will it all end?  Gun control could help, but those that own legally are not the perpetrators, it’s those that steal.  It’s those that slip out of the FBI’s eyes when they shift, leaving that questionable person to continue, and then “didn’t see it coming.”

Remember Nazi Germany?  The Jews were blamed for everything by the Fuhrer.  They say it can’t happen again, but I beg to differ.  Germany thought Hitler was wonderful, until he had complete control and the worm turned.  This example has been brought up a lot lately, my concern is that those causing the violence will indeed blame those of us who are trying to defend our country and our freedom will take this opportunity to rob us of exactly that.  I am concerned that the violence at the nightclub, then at Walmart in Texas, and further adventures in violence, may be the leverage our government will use to declare a military state and dictatorship.  (I hope I’m not right.)

Is the election all a ruse, meant to distract America?  What will happen next?  Can we trust our government?  I’m sorry to say, I do not trust them.  In the end, I have to watch out for me and my own.

No answer here, but just watching and waiting, and hoping a Savior will arise…a theme throughout the history of the world…
