I can't draw any other conclusion... it has happened twice now, and coincidence is just not possible.
You know how every time you google something and suddenly it is in the side bar of every page you look at? RT, USA today, NYT, WAPO, Aljazeera.. you name it, they are all connected somehow and it is more and more obvious.
Well last year my wife and I were sitting in the living room at days end.. my father walked over and mentioned something about a handrail on the lower stairs in our house.. we have a handrail on one side and the other is a bookcase stepping down. He didn't have a handrail on one side and took a bad step and stumbled.. my wife and I listened and I made a comment that I could make a quick handrail. My computer was not open, my phone was 'sleeping' on the table. Well next morning I go to look online through the various papers I peruse and son of a gun, there in the side bar are advertisements for temporary railings. i wasn't even on my computer and somehow 'it' or 'they' decided I might need a railing and viola! There they are in several sizes and price points. my wife and I looked at each other with goosebumps. we both knew what it meant. this was the fall last year. we actually laughed it off..."It can't be!" We chided ourselves for being 'conspiracy theorists'.
Yesterday morning I was discussing some work I'm doing in our house.. I was sitting in bed, my computer was on my lap. I mentioned a certain rug size that would fit in the loft I'm working on. Neither of us googled anything or asked siri for anything, we were just having a private conversation. My wife thought a rug we already have might work fine there.
Today I sipped my coffee and open the news and guess what is for sale 50 percent off near me? Rugs!! Sizes to fit any space. Deeply discounted too!
Now if you press a side button and ask Siri or have one of those new digital assistants then you would rightly expect it to be listening every second.. it has to, to know what you want but if you don't have that, if you have not pressed the button long enough to get siri to answer then isn't it fair to think no one is listening? That is what I thought, but it is now glaringly obvious that it is listening anyways! I now believe spyware is built into every piece of hardware I have and these devices are not coming from Russia or North Korea.. they are Apple, Comcast, charter, these are all from American corporations which are all in bed with our overbearing government.
It is not right! Of course the story line in America is "no it ain't so!" "Other countries spy on us and their own citizens.. and we are keeping our eye on them!" We all know for many years they had potential.. we all knew about american phone calls being bounced off satellites from outside USA to make them collectable calls to USA spooks.. well that is all smoke and mirrors because right now, if you have tech devices there is secret data collection going on on you and again.. it is not the Iranians!
If you want to have a private talk.. you have to undress and leave your devices in the house where they can spy on each other. Maybe put on a song they like.. and go outside into the woods under a tree.
"Well what do you have to hide?" or " just don't click on it." Almost everyone I have mentioned it to thinks I'm full of it unless they also have had that happen and it has happened to several people I know. When we heard our story >without us even mentioning it< repeated by a guy servicing our cable box only with a different product, it was flowers for his wife in his case, well we all felt like we had seen a ghost.
Obviously I can't change that.. and I can set my devices down or wrap them in tin foil or lead.. but that is not the issue. The issue is under what mandate this can be done, and the only mandate that allows it is the secret security apparatus and special secret rules in this country fighting the so called war on terror. What a scam.. what a joke. What a crime! Fascism is the son of capitalism.
