100 years ago if someone wanted to spy on you in your own home they either had to look through a key hole or get a search warrant. Sadly with the progress of technology today that is no longer the case.
In 2011 I discovered how the Obama Administration, utilizing 8 Billion dollars from the 2009 stimulus, was building the Smart Grid to track things such as your individual carbon creation, your ice cube creation, even your internet use. Basically the Obama Administration is setting up the Smart Grid to track everything you do in your own home through Demand Response and “Smart” Appliances. It seems that while many U.S. citizens were ignorant of this, in 2012, Congress was not.
According to a report prepared for Congress by the Congressional Research Service, Smart Meters will allow Police to track a person’s behavior in their own home:
With smart meters, police will have access to data that might be used to track residents’ daily lives and routines while in their homes, including their eating, sleeping, and showering habits, what appliances they use and when, and whether they prefer the television to the treadmill, among a host of other details.
Didn’t know about this did you? Well I’m surprised considering the large group of Congressmen and women who sounded the alarm after reading this report a few years ago and how the main stream media reported on this extensively demanding answers from the Obama Administration.. oh wait… never mind.. no they didn’t.
If that isn’t enough to raise an eyebrow just remember that with the recent secret court ruling stating that the NSA can continue spying on Americans, do you really think that once the Smart Grid is complete the Government won’t start spying on you in your own home without a warrant? Really??
So in a few years … when you lay down at night, take comfort in knowing that while there isn’t someone sitting outside your key hole spying on you… there will be someone sitting in some far off control room.. in some Government building laughing at the fact that after you drove home from work at 6 PM, then took a 30 minute shower after a long stint in your demand response hot tub and eating pork chops you fried on your Smart stove, you fell asleep while watching old re-runs of I Love Lucy on your 50 inch, Smart TV in your living room.
Ahhh Now doesn’t that just make you feel all safe and warm inside?
I guess if you were the citizen of a Communist dictatorship maybe…. oh.. wait…
