It appears that there is no level of absurdity too extreme for Big Brother and simultaneously, no level of absurdity which is too intolerable to the citizens of this country. Incrementally, the nit picking controllers continue to administer fatality to freedom by way of thousands paper cuts over decades of time. As no one wound hurts bad enough to galvanize the ever - more intoxicated masses to any sort of action, the process continues.

The latest in ridiculous micro-management techniques employed by the ruling class is trash monitoring. Unbelievable, really, that even the refuse one throws out can't be left alone by this intrusive parasite of a world system which is evolving (or de-evolving). In the name of (what else) saving the planet, US cities are adopting a trash monitoring program much like one which has been in place in the UK for the past few years. Some 2.8 million homes in Great Britain now have trash bins fitted with rfid chips which monitor the amount of trash being disposed of. Some areas are requiring residents to sort their trash by color on penalty of a $1,500 (US) fine.

The US normally follows in Police State tactics one step behind the UK and so it is that now the nosey dumpster-diving mafia has arrived on American shores. Obama has dumped half a million dollars of stimulus funds into an endeavor to produce microchipped trash bins to ensure that US citizens in Dayton Ohio will be good little sheep and recycle. City and Country government supplied another $60,000 of their own. All residents of Dayton will get their microchipped trash bins and the program will be coming out of the tax payers' pockets to the tune of 1.6 million dollars over the next few years. Charlotte NC has also joined the Green Mania movement and the latest city on board is Cleveland Ohio, which perhaps has caught the worst end of the trash bin spy network in the US to date.

In Cleveland the plan is to make you recycle..or else. The plan won't be fully operational until the beginning of next year, but when it is i can safely say that Cleveland has just added one more reason in a long list for residents to find somewhere else to live. The chip will let the city know how often any one household recycles. If a household has not recycled in some weeks, a trash supervisor will rummage through their trash and count the recyclable items which the offenders have instead (gasp) discarded. If the bins are found to contain 10% or more recyclable items....the household is Fined $100. The end goal is to incorporate all residents of Cleveland in this program over the course of a few years. Fines will also be leveled on people who simply put out too much trash..recyclable or not. Those fines run from $250 to $500. You can already be fined in Cleveland for putting your trash out too early or leaving the bins out too late. Who knew taking out the trash could be such a pain in the backside?

If something simple and routine and fairly ignored as a matter of daily thought could be made into a giant irritation, you can be sure that the PTB will find a way to do it. Furthermore if they can manage to force you into a position to have every minute detail of your life examined under a microscope..well that's enough to make them giddy. They also realize that people generally don't like a regular pain in the backside which costs them money besides, and so they realize they need to provide you with some sort of incentive to just sit down and take it. That incentive, these days, comes as the rallying cry "save the planet..recycle!".

Those who are hardcore environmentalists, and even those who are not are entirely convinced that good people recycle and bad, careless people throw things away. They are convinced that we will all find ourselves buried under mountains of trash someday in a landscape barren of trees (since we've used them all for paper) and choking to death for all the pollution and lack of oxygen...unless everyone recycles. The propaganda which demands either you accept giving up some of your natural freedoms or you will die a miserable death on a dying planet is a hit. The compliant masses are given an incentive to feel good about themselves for bowing down to strict regulation. They even acquire a sort of "martyrs complex" whereby they feel such a level of self righteousness that their venom toward non compliant people borders on a hostility one might reserve for serial killers.

It is time to do a little homework on the claims environmentalism makes concerning the impact of the private sector on the planet's ecosystems. Environmentalism is a misnomer...instead of being a movement of the people to help clean up the natural environment, what it is precisely, is a political tool by which government manipulates the masses into accepting the chipping away of their human rights. If you would really believe that there is any attempt within government which remotely resembles cleaning up the planet, consider these things which are never mentioned as environmental concerns by government and mainstream media alike:

GMO crops: an insanely destructive enterprise to the ecosystem, not only will genetically manipulated crops destroy Your health, but will contaminate and eventually destroy their natural counterparts, kill bee populations needed for pollination and pose a threat to any wildlife who eats them. These crops aren't just OK with government, they have gone to great lengths to ensure producers of them don't even have to tell you you're eating them. Ever hear mainstream media or DC griping at you to stop eating GMO produce?

Suppression of free energy: you may believe it has simply been a matter of necessity that energy is produced in the manner it is by means of great amounts of money and fossil fuels, all neatly kept in control by a few companies around the country. Not true by a long shot...the means to produce energy which would be entirely clean and Cost Free to every person on the planet after an initial set up has existed since the early 1900's in the wake of technology brought to light by Nicola Tesla. Why don't we have it? well...ask the government who wants to microchip your trash bins..it beats me.

Pharmaceutical Industry waste: Without even mentioning the process of making the pharmaceuticals themselves, let's just consider the ramifications of millions of people popping pills all over the country. Medication, which by the way has never cured anything but has made the drug companies very wealthy, is a serious pollutant in the water supply. These medications remain in the water supply even after treatment at water facilities and as a result they have devastating effects on the wildlife who comes in contact with the residual chemicals. Now we have populations of fish and amphibians who can't produce fertile males and shellfish who have no natural instinct to avoid predators. Since when has the government done anything to try to promote natural prevention and cure over pharmaceuticals?

Water Treatment facilities: Across the nation, water treatment facilities maintain a practice of adding cocktails of chemicals to the drinking water of municipalities..some 400 different sorts of chemicals actually. Among these are sodium fluoride..a horrifically toxic chemical waste left over from manufacturing plants. These chemicals are unspeakably harmful to the human body, not to mention their impact on the environment. Sodium Fluoride is particularly hard to filter out of water once it is in it...even distillation will not remove the chemical. It is a government decision that city water supplies should be a toxic soup of waste chemicals. Feeling less motivated by Big Brother's insistence that you recycle yet?

Recycling itself has no great benefit to the environment as the process itself is a producer of pollution. It does little to nothing to help keep trees alive since the paper industry is responsible for most of the trees planted anyway. At one time in the past there was a perfectly biodegradable, wholly renewable source for paper products which required much less processing than wood pulp and would have done away with the need to ever use wood for paper production altogether. That product was hemp... but the government on behalf of the companies who's interest was in wood pulp quickly found reasons to demonize the reputation of cannabis in the public mind so that a simple wild plant became utterly taboo and a cheap and plentiful resource was abandoned. The entire question of recycling to spare trees would be as easily resolved by substituting hemp for wood pulp now. This does not seem to be of any interest in DC either.

Ever heard of straining gnats and swallowing camels? Obviously there is no point in mandating recycling to any end which benefits the environment while at the same time there is such a complete disinterest in government to address real issues of environmental concern. One might easily brush that off with flippant remarks of some general lack of intelligence on the part of politicians but that is not the root cause suggested by the ever increasing surveillance grid which has been gradually introduced to US citizens. One by one, an individual has to either keep coming up with excuses for measures like these or reasonably decide that they are all to some greater purpose. Answering the issue with "it's just a traffic camera...no big deal", "it's just a product rfid...no big deal", "it's just recycling..no big deal"...eventually ends at "it's just a national security implantable device...it's no big deal."

At what point do people get sick of it? At what point is it too much invasion? At what point are people willing to say.."forget it, i'm not going to take it anymore."? I don't know what you're planning to do about it, residents of Cleveland Ohio, but i can tell you what i would do...i would outright refuse to comply..period. Perhaps i'd try disabling that nasty little chip with a neodymium magnet or maybe i'd simply think about hiring a private trash disposal company even if it cost more....possibly if all else failed i'd move. Come hell or high water though, $100 fines or $1,000 (which i would also flatly refuse to pay)..my answer would have to remain "No". I think it's past time for a little civil disobedience.

Humanity is endowed with certain inalienable rights which are by nature the gift of their Creator, not a government privilege.

"It's just a piece of forbidden fruit.. no big deal" - Eve to Satan, in the Garden of Eden, just before the Fall of the Entire Race of Mankind.

the "little things" that matter are totally backwards these days.. as you wrote, gnats, like RFID-equipped garbage cans, are being strained.. while the obese camels of disregard for the environment are passing through unchecked..

meanwhile, simple seeds of truth like "don't eat forbidden fruit" are firmly planted only by the wayside, waiting to blossom and be understood by passing wanderers who have dissented from the satanic-paved road most traveled.

the little things that matter in life have not changed since the beginning.. the simple things.. the uncomplicated things.. things (perhaps in the near future) like "Who is your Master?" a simple question that can be verbally answered, and even lied about, but which can only be witnessed as true through action.

the actions required in accepting a simple truth are huge camels today.. people are assured that if they feel something, it must be foundational to believing something.. the differences between a person who recycles because they "feel bad for the environment" or "feel scared for the future" etc., and a person who refuses to buy GMO crops because they "know" they are bad not only for the environment, but for so many other reasons..

the least of reasons not being that the Creator did not establish GMO crops, but did give a law against them when He commanded that only like kinds were to be bred.. mixing some spider genes into a tomato plant might seem like "no big deal" but it is no different at the core than mixing some fallen angel DNA into a human being.

true, people are thinking backwards instead of straight, with minds that the enemy has well-cultivated, so that they readily receive the many varieties of propaganda.. but hopefully there will be a surge of people who are willing to not only say the right things, but to actually do them (yes, it's a very long long-shot).. maybe like Ninevah..

for most RFID chipped trash receptacles may seem like a drop in the bucket compared to something like roaming vans equipped with mobile naked body scanners.. but refusing to participate in something that seems small is just as important as refusing to participate in something that seems big since every choice at its core is simple 'right' or 'wrong'.

personally i think the magnetic disabling is kind of funny and wondered how many times a chip would be replaced before suspicion arose (if it wasn't already present of course)

i agree, now is a great time to individually practice civil disobedience and resist the Beast one choice at a time, remembering that the Creator has established an answer to every choices, and all those right decisions and actions count.

"Humanity is endowed with certain inalienable rights which are by nature the gift of their Creator, not a government privilege."

"See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is." Ephesians 5:15-18

hopefully more and more will 'redeem the time' in more and more ways.. one good way is to refuse to participate in Satan's system.. even (and especially) the seeming "little things" involved in that, things like using spying trash bins.. and eating forbidden fruit.
Big Bro is in more than just your trash.

The Government Can Use GPS to Track Your Moves
"It is a dangerous decision — one that, as the dissenting judges warned, could turn America into the sort of totalitarian state imagined by George Orwell. It is particularly offensive because the judges added insult to injury with some shocking class bias: the little personal privacy that still exists, the court suggested, should belong mainly to the rich."



http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,2013150,00.html
things like the trashtastrophe and tracking trends tend to bring to mind the phrase "filthy orcs".

"Any more than 10% recyclables in the regular trash (by volume) gets a fine of $100. "

by volume.. so one too many empty gallon jugs could get a dissenting dis-carder a fine that works out to about 10,000 times the cost of the cast-out container.. but it's not just the flagrant disregard for what is right which recalls to mind the merciless orcs of Middle Earth.. the leaders of dark orc army also practiced manipulation..

"Houston and Los Angeles have programs with RecycleBank, in which residents affix an RFID tag to their own trash bin. Each household has an account, matched to an RFID tag. The trucks that pick up the bins weigh them and tally up points that can be redeemed at local businesses. Usually the points are some kind of discount or gift card, says Melody Serafino, spokesperson for RecycleBank."

always making a gain from others willingness to sell out..

"European cities have embraced the technology as well, says Mark Scaparro, executive vice president of Sales at HID Global, an Irvine, Calif.-based vendor that makes the RFID chips. [...] Scaparro says the use of the chips is growing. His company has shipped some 5 million to 8 million units per year to Europe, and the principal markets are Germany and France"

"In Germany [no surprise there], where RFIDs were first widely used, there was a single type and frequency used around the country. That isn't true in the U.S., so the makers have to be more careful about what frequencies they use."

"HID uses a passive RFID that is only activated when it gets a signal. The signal is at 125 megahertz, but there is a push to use other, higher frequencies that don't transmit as far.."

i imagine it wouldn't take much coaxing to turn those so-called 'passive' chips aggressive..

Trash collectors to serve as eyes and ears in the street for police

Waste Management workers are out and about when almost everyone else is not. Except someone who might be up to no good.

A former FBI agent recently trained all Waste Management drivers, helpers and technicians in Rensselaer and Albany Counties to act as a mobile community watch.

"They're on these routes every day so they're used to the normal situation so they are able to recognize a non-normal situation," explains Ken Bevis of Waste Management. Trucks are now armed with a cell phone, camera and incident reports so they'll have accurate information for police and, possibly, prosecutors.

"The drivers understand their main job is to observe and report and let authorities do their job," explains Bevis.

The extra set of eyes and ears in the street is appreciated because even cops know they can't be everywhere, all the time.

"The old adage is 'where's a cop when you you need one?' Now it will be where's a cop or DGS or Waste Management when you need one," says Albany Police Chief Steve Krokoff.

"Waste Watch" is free to municipalities and the Capital Region is the first area in New York state to benefit from the program.

Hidden Tracking Files Found in iPhone, iPad
Published: Thursday, 21 Apr 2011 | 5:51 AM ET
By: Nick Bilton
The New York Times 
Apple faced questions on Wednesday about the security of its iPhone and iPad after a report that the devices regularly record their locations in a hidden file.
The report came from a technology conference in San Francisco, where two computer programmers presented research showing that the iPhone and 3G versions of the iPad began logging users’ locations a year ago, when Apple updated its mobile operating system.
After customers upgraded the software, a new hidden file began periodically storing location data, apparently gleaned from nearby cellphone towers and Wi-Fi networks, along with the time.
The data is stored on a person’s phone or iPad, but when the device is synced to a computer, the file is copied over to the hard drive, the programmers said. The data is not normally encrypted; although users can encrypt their information when they sync their devices, few do.
To some privacy advocates, the storing of the data was a clear breach.
“The secretive collection of location data crosses the privacy line,” said Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, a privacy policy organization based in Washington.
“Apple should know better than to track iPhone users in this way.” Others said the discovery of the hidden file was unlikely to have a major practical impact on privacy and security.
“It is more symbolic than anything else,” said Tim O’Reilly, a longtime technology pundit and founder of O’Reilly Media.
“It is one more sign of how devices are collecting data about us and potentially sharing it with others. This is the future. We have to figure out how to deal with it.”
Law enforcement officials can already get this type of location information from cellphone companies, Mr. O’Reilly said; there are, however, conflicting rulings in federal courts about whether they need a search warrant.
But sitting on a home computer, the data could now be more vulnerable to access by hackers or others, he said. And information about a person’s locations over time could be accessible to strangers if a phone or iPad was lost or if it was attacked by malware.
The news of what appeared to be a security problem immediately ricocheted across the Internet as bloggers on technology and Apple-centered sites debated the many questions left unanswered by the report.
It is unclear, for example, whether Apple is gaining access to the information in any way. It is also unclear how precise the location data is and why it is being stored at all.
The programmers said they had asked Apple’s product security team about their findings but did not receive a response. Apple also did not respond to a request for comment from The New York Times.
The report even attracted attention from political figures, like Senator Al Franken, Democrat of Minnesota, who sent Apple’s chief executive, Steven P. Jobs, a letter asking why Apple was “secretly compiling” the data and what it would be used for.Some privacy experts said the issue was not the legality of storing this information but whether Apple was playing fair with its customers.
“Collecting this data is not illegal, but it does matter whether or not this is explicitly spelled out in Apple’s terms of use,” said Christina Gagnier, a lawyer specializing in privacy and copyright.
“Apple constantly changes their privacy policy, and it’s questionable whether most users are aware this is happening.”
Apple has an obligation to its customers to allow them to opt out of being tracked, said Ian Glazer of Gartner Research, who is a director in the company’s identity and privacy group.
“There is no way to really turn this tracking off,” he said. “It needs to be visually obvious, or in the settings, to see that this is happening on your phone.”
Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden presented the paper at the O’Reilly Where 2.0 conference, a gathering of experts on location technology.
Mr. Allan said in a blog post that beyond the issue of storing the information is the question of “how Apple intends to use it — or not.”
Mr. Allan, who has written books that teach people how to program, also said that the data being collected would be transferred to a new product when customers buy a new phone or iPad, and then sync it.
Mr. Warden, a former Apple employee, posted a free downloadable application on his Web site for Mac computers that allows users to see their stored location data on a map.
Whatever the privacy implications, the report was a burst of bad publicity for Apple on a day when it again reported stellar earnings results.
“It doesn’t matter how Apple explains its way out of this, just the fact that consumers know that their phone is being tracked is a very big deal,” said Chenxi Wang, a vice president of Forrester Research who specializes in security and risk.
Miguel Helft and John Markoff contributed reporting.

"Drones’ Future: Supersonic Swarms of Robot Bugs

Robotic Flies

What: A micro-aviary of drones that look—and fly—like ladybugs, dragonflies, and other insects. Since 2008, George Huang, professor of engineering at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, has managed to produce a butterfly model with a 5-inch wingspan. “We haven’t done a final version where we declare victory,” Huang says. “I’ll be happy once it’s fly-sized.”

When: Darpa and the Air Force have already invested in similarly tiny craft, though with no firm time horizon for deployment. Regardless, micro-drones’ potential goes beyond the military. “Police could use them to fly into a drug trafficker’s house,” Huang says. “Or in a nuclear or mining accident, you can send a fly inside to find victims.”
Swarms

What: A swarm of five Frisbee-sized drones equipped with Wi-Fi transmitters that form a kind of aerial Napster. As conceived by Liam Young, cofounder of London-based think tank Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today, they can “appear, broadcast their network, then disperse and re-form in another part of the city.”

When: After a spotty test flight last November (two of the drones crashed into a river), the file-sharing copters are set to take to the sky this summer at a Dublin science festival called Hack the City. Meanwhile, the Pirate Bay has announced that it’s building its own fleet. File-sharing drones, like file-sharing itself, hover in a legal gray zone, but Young’s not shaken by the prospect of prosecution. “We see it as our responsibility to get people talking about this,” he says. Done."
