The easy way for him to get out of the terminal is to run some explosives for the intelligence services. Like in his shoes or in his underwear.

That only works at airports where the security is run by the Israelis.

I posted a week ago or so

unless you have been on the viewing end of CCTV you may not appreciate just how much they reveal

a tiny innocuous dome cam on the wall of the house down the street, the house next door, your local bar or what ever


the images are not only high res but the cam operator can in most cases zoom, pan, rotate or whatever as well as record in the terabytes of cheap storage you, your family, whomever with detail beyond comprehension


that tiny little cam on good ol' Liam and Melissa's house down the street can be their window into their neighbors lives


all in the name of security

and when the happy couple are off to their summer/winter home their view of the hood is a click away on their smart phone or laptop


yes that little dome cam affixed to your neighbors house could be looking at the green bean fragment on your tooth from tonight's dinner, even as you read this.

Orwell"s 1984 warned of the end of privacy [italics added]:

With the development of television, and the technical advance which made it possible to receive and transmit simultaneously on the same instrument, [[[E.g. the cell phone]]] private life came to an end.

Part 2, Chapter 9

The work that you do, and have done.  How can a person not respect such realities.


Thank-you for sharing.

Steve Wozniak: 

“When the Internet first came, I thought it was just the beacon of freedom. People could communicate with anyone, anywhere, and nobody could stop it…Now it turns out that every single thing we send as email counts as publicly viewable and it’s totally open and exposed, and can be taken for whatever reason. That wasn’t supposed to be. That wasn’t where we thought the Internet was going to go. We thought it was going to elevate the really average people over huge, big, controlling governments and protect us from tyrants.”

Instead, “it allows the tyrants to get tighter control over more and more of our lives,” Wozniak lamented.

Have decided to take a month or two away... away from the farce called the market... from geopolitics... all of it... I am tired of the whole damn show... it is reducing me to a cynical wreck...

I want tell you folks that you are great... you too WB... your thinking is a bit twisted... probably why I can appreciate it. To be in this world, as it stands now, and sane, is the greatest act of madness... And I will miss hanging out with you on ZH. But as stated above, I need a break. Haven't even had the chance to properly deal with the loss of my son last October...

Besides... I am in the market to the extent that I am, and out to the extent that I am... mostly out... and nothing really is going to change between now and then. I will just miss out on all the gold and silver smackdown chatter... or the latest act of the PPT... or a chance to lament the deepening quagmire called the Middle East... or the chance to speculate over which side of the pond will implode first... or the debate over whether China is about to collapse, or is in fact the second comming... and I may miss the chance to speculate on the Japan pool...

But what the hell...

This site is nothing but a bunch of cracked pots anyway... myself included. On the other hand, it is the cracked pot that merits the attention of the potter... and in this there is ultimate hope...

See you all some time in August...

Best wishes. Summer sunshine, surf, mountains and forests are refreshing. Don't put off claiming your rewards.

Banzai - this is a heads up for you or anyone (sadly too late for this poor ZH reader (assume he was a ZH reader) who is facing 13 years in the big house.


STAY AWAY FROM SAN DIEGO if you are carrying chalk and plan to use it on a sidewalk or wall

Filner is having a major feud with DA Goldsmith over some other issues. and Mayor Filner wants to drop the case. It sounds as though the issue is that Olson persists in defacing the bank walls. (this is compartmentlized treatment of dissent; protest zones, times and locations designated. rules of engagement, set up by the police) they probably call it harrassment.

monad's picture

If I lived in the area I'd be bribing teenage kids with beers to chalk anything they like on that edifice. If The Dorner Killers nabbed me, I'd point out to the judge that my actions were reactive to their actions. Then I'd do the time; its easier than the psychiatric clusterfuck option, because those losers would Randall P McMurphy my ass, long time. At least in prison, they have respect, decency and a rational code.
Like Bernie said.

It's the way they "disciplinate" people.

You shouldn't allow them to.

williambanzai7's picture

Yes, that is typical. They should pepper spray him in the court room for good measure.

President for Life! one of those medals should be his Pax Americana medal, P.O.E. Peaceful Oppressive Ends, rather than Peace on Earth. General Ripper was a visionary, and he would have sent the bombers over Washington if that story was told today.

I've been reading more about backdoor devices, and not just software, but hardware, processor chips, so that even if you run open code the hardware drivers can be used to access your computer from a remote. the new autos have backdoors in their computer systems which allow remotes to control your speed, braking, just about everything. the privacy war is really a consumer war, Purity of Essence. We've come a long way since flouride general...

I love all of these but the babushka in front of the TV is one that made me laugh. 

Patriot 2.0 is powerful--it's got to be truly chilling to the control freaks.  The key message from Snowden is the same as that from the movie The Lives of Others -- when the security apparatus loses its moral authority, it starts losing the unquestioning loyalty of the grunts who do the work.  Of those, a rare few will act.  That's all it takes, as we are seeing.

williambanzai7's picture

Their tactic of steering the MSM into resurrecting the Cold War meme is very typical and extreme nonsense.

He, Snowden, and others like him deserve all the moral support they can get. All the slurs and smears (traitor, turncoat, double agent, rat, snitch, tattler) even whistle blower does not have a particularly complementary ring to it. I can't find a suitable alternative though.

Patriot 2.0 sounds fine to me.

the grateful unemployed's picture

Cold War 2.0 is America against its people. Look at the womans junk. The war on privacy is consumer driven, all matters of necessity become government subsidized insurance, (how about food insurance) and they will be means tested according to you behavior, and your DNA.

political malcontents can satisfy themselves by changing parties, (haha like that matters). but don't think of the new allliance between government information gathering and insurance companies and big tech companies, the fate accompli in death panels, think of them as life panels, they give life (if you happen to meet their qualifications)

Here are shots of some framed Banzai7s sent to me by happy fringe Zero Hedge low brows.

Very nice basement bunkers don't you think?


This one replaced a Kinkade. Typical bomb shelter decor...


Opposite Brother Duane (respect).

HUNG TITANIC (With Brother Duane!)

This is a really fine frame job. And I am honored that several people have asked for prints of my photography.


And this one, owned by a Greek Cypriot, is Draghi proof!!




I have had some discussions with gallery types and in my opinion they don't understand what is going on in the world. They live in Bernanke's Bubble World.

But the people acquiring these prints damn sure as well do. 

And Zero Hedge readers are not a bunch of fringe low brow nut jobs like the MSM shills would have everyone believe. 

As always, I appreciate everyone's support.
