Where's Ottawa Boy

One of my friends decided to get cute and google my location. I think it's this guy.

Wow, looks like quite the psycho killer. 
Anyways. He noticed a church in the back ground of that pic I posted showing my new apartment , and did a google search of churches and ottawa , and then  he checked out the roof top patterns and the cracks in the road (you can see the cracks around the sewar if you look out the window) and came up with an address ... that wasn't perfect , but it was really really close. He's only off by a few meters.

And the only tool he used was google (search and street view).
It's frightenning how much can be learned with a few google searches. It really is. I think we are in an age where information about ourselves is out of our control.

This guy is actually a good friend so I'm not worried about him tracking me down. But the fact that a few google searchs from a stray picture can find my address is of deep concern to us all , I think.

RIP Walter Scott


It is illegal to advocate the commission of a crime. Both in Canada and in the USA. But what if there are problems ?

Legal problems , like in the american south, where the cops are essentially hunting down blacks as if they were game animals, and as in this video , putting a few bullets in the back of one that's running away. (Not allowed to shoot anyone who isn't a threat to another human being ...shooting someone in the back while he's fleeing , no matter what his criminal history , is a serious no no)  We all know this cop will never see the inside of a jail. In the American South , there is a one sided war going on. The Blacks get shot by the cops, and the cops make dang sure no one fights back.

How long until the blacks get tired of being used for target practice , throw away their cell phones and other devices that the FBI is most certainly using to spy on them and make sure they don't organize (but don't ask them for those recorded conversations to use as evidence against some cop ! ) and do it the old fashion way ?

Everyone knows, you can't run around shooting people and expect them not to defend themselves. Everyone knows many mideavil nations, like France , had themselves a revolution when the population got tired of being killed , and decided to introduce the nobility to madame guillotine.

Im not advocating the blacks rise up and take up arms.
I'm advocating the Klu Klux Klan and all of it's followers be thrown in jail , before they set the USA on fire.

Article = none , personal experience

Moving homes without a moving truck is a pain. Luckily I had help. And a donation of chairs. Good chairs, which in my definition means chairs that won't collapse under my 305lbs weight (do you know how many fold up chairs there are with a 250lbs weight limit ? And the realy fancy sturdy ones have, hidden away in hard to find spots, a tag proclaiming hteir limit is actually only 225lbs ...? )

 This dour faced ray of sunshine is my friend George , who is helping me move these two chairs he gave me on the bus.

Wow. I gotta do something about that beard. That's my new dollar store cowboy hat, sells for about $2.50 each , and a white beard so thick children stop me on the street and call me Santa Clause. I tell them I'm on vacation.

Wow. I now have 3 chairs in my place. (and no table) That's quite a step up from one chair. I can actually have people over and more than one person at a time can sit down.

There's no place like home

Article = none , personal experience

 Moved to a new place. Potentially the last place i will ever live in , since it's city of ottawa housing. Or ...maybe when I turn 65 they'll decide it's not a good idea for the old folks to live with the  young hoodlems.
   Anyways...looks like the old fridge was a wreck, so I got a brand new one. Even has the paper work still in it.

 My spot on the floor. I used to sleep in my girlfriends bed (when she was at work) and it was very very comfortable. And after a few days I'd get these awful back aches. Then for one reason or another I wound up sleeping on the floor, and my back ache went away ? Weird. A whole industry built on selling you mattersses that seem to actually inflict back pain on you. One wonders what the point is ?

The baby blue pad with the electical cable is a Heating pad, you lie on it and despite the fact that you only have 2 blankets you're warm anyways because the electric pad keeps you warm at night.

Counter space counter space, where art thou counterspace ? Oh that red cup ...seems to be taking it all up, not that there was much in the first place. Hmm...gonna have to get a table or something.

Ok , yes it's a camping chair. But it has a 500lbs weight capacity, making it far superior to all those other 250lbs limit fold up chairs (and me weighing 305 lbs last time I checked !)

Saanich mayor vindicated by privacy commissioner's report on spyware


VICTORIA — Less than two weeks after being sworn in as mayor, Saanich Mayor Richard Atwell learned he was being spied upon.
A whistleblower sidled up to the rookie mayor at a community event, last December, and suggested the mayor’s own staff had bugged his municipal computer.
Distrustful of Saanich’s top bureaucrats — many of whom were loyal to the six-term incumbent that Atwell had just upset at the polls — the mayor of Vancouver Island’s largest municipality felt he had only one option left: Launch his own investigation.

Atwell’s suspicions were vindicated Monday in a report by privacy commissioner Elizabeth Denham, who said Saanich staff broke the law by installing spyware software called Spector 360 onto several municipal computers.
The district collected too much unnecessary personal information and didn’t provide proper notification to those being monitored, Denham ruled.
The software was also too invasive, tracking not only Atwell’s Internet and email usage, but also recording all the keystrokes he made and taking screenshots of his screen every 30 seconds, said Denham.

So the employee's of the Mayor decided they didn't like the new mayor and they put spyware on his machine .

Atwell has asked the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner to review Saanich police conduct, as well as the conduct of the regional traffic unit that has pulled him over four times without issuing any infractions.

And they tried to get you arrested . And the police investigation was tainted of course , since the police were in on it. They were all loyal to the mayor of 6 terms who just got booted (6x4= 24 years )

See, this is the kind of nonsense I'm talking about. The police were in on the scam. If you can't trust the police who can you trust. Apparently , no one, because even the police were in on this effort to oust a duly elected mayor.

I do not know if Atwell is a good mayor  , or a terrible mayor. But I do know , it is the responsibility of the electorate to decide who is mayor , not the police , and not some bureaucrat in IT who owes the previous administration a favor. For us to permit someone to take away our right to vote , and have that vote actually mean something , is to turn us into the blacks of Ferguson , Missouri, who were abused and even murdered by the politico's , because their vote didn't matter. They never got to vote.

Mark my words. Let someone take your vote from you , and that's what your town / city will turn into.

Driver beware: Your new car may be spying on you


Electronic control units keep track of everything from how fast you drive to how long your car idles and how suddenly you brake, the report says. Your car’s GPS system, for example, also keeps track of your exact location, sending that information to the car’s manufacturer, or possibly a third-party call centre or an insurance agency.
Detailed information about where a person spends their time paints an intimate picture of their life, the report says, and can be dangerous in the wrong hands.
“Such data can be used to embarrass or blackmail a person, to stalk individuals, to steal identities, to facilitate robberies, or to create a profile that can then be used by commercial entities in unexpected ways.”  "
What might not be so obvious to motorists, however, are the consequences of having your car constantly monitored.
“You watch it and you go, ‘that’s really interesting, that’s really useful,’ ” Gogolek told in a phone interview. “Then you go, ‘wait a second -- if they have microphones in the car, can they listen to what I’m saying?’ ”
Though it doesn’t appear GM’s mics are always on, it wasn’t too long ago that a Ford executive unsettled attendees at a data-privacy panel discussion.
And a recent example of your car keeping tabs on you is rental company Hertz installing driver-facing cameras in their rental cars – though they say the cameras are “inactive.”

 --- ---- ---- ---

So ... the car has a microphone AND a camera pointed at the driver, GPS , and about 70 other sensors. And they're selling this info not only to insurance people, but to anyone else who's got two nickles to rub together (selling your daily route to advertisers).

I can see the salespitch.

This is *YOUR* car ! Enjoy ! But *We* will be watching your every move , and every time *YOU* fart *WE* will sell that information to McDonalds who will try and sell you new hambergers. PS : Thank you for the internet connection that *YOU* provide for *OUR* benifit.

Another brick in the wall of that filter bubble.

What is a filter bubble ?

It is where they control your internet searches , the signs you see along the road, your phone, etc etc, to convince you that 8$ is a reasonable price for a loaf of bread, but the guy behind you is only paying 4$. Basically , it's an opportunity to rip you off. And that's before you get into political types who disenfranchise you from voting because they believe you'll vote against them (robocall scandel was only the beginning) , and any activist pointing out that anyone anywhere is cheating the system some how. (Enbridge had a few more pipe line leaks..oh we gotta silence that , CRTC made a decision Bell didn't like, bells lapdog CTV is going to heavily slant that , Big Business wants more TFW's because hiring canadians is just so passè , we gotta silence anyone who protests that ...etc etc)

New Ferguson municipal judge hears first round of cases


The Missouri Supreme Court appointed Judge Roy Richter to handle the caseload. A statement from the state chief justice’s office indicated Richter will bring a fresh, disinterested perspective to the courts’ practices and will be able and willing to implement needed reforms. The statement went on to indicate it’s not just Ferguson; it’s entirely possible statewide changes are needed to the judicial system.
And while others agreed Judge Richter seems fair, some felt a new judge cannot bring about necessary changes.
“Once the police cite me, it’s too late for a judge to make a difference,” he said Morris.

 Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.
Got a fine for "walking with attitude " ? He can't void it. He's gonna make you pay it anyways.
Hes going to enforce all those illegal and unconstitutional Municiple Laws.

The racist white regime of america keeps right on rolling along, robbing the black man every time he turns around.

My Email Friend

Artical = none , personal experience

   I met a man once, well , I emailed him. For a time.

   He had Aspergers Syndrome , or so he said, and I looked it up.

   But the medical description was nothing like what I saw.

Asperger syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger's syndrome, Asperger disorder (AD) or simply Asperger's, is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication, alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and atypical (peculiar or odd) use of language are frequently reported.[1][2] The diagnosis of Asperger's was eliminated in the 2013 fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) and replaced by a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder on a severity scale.[3]

   His messages had no context, he had to keep reminding you what he was talking about , resulting in several paragraphs of text where a simple sentence would suffice.

   And he had no ... sense of humour ? No understanding of double meanings. If you told him the joke about a man with a duck walking into a bar and asking the bartender to put it on the ducks bill ... he will not realize that "the ducks bill" could refer to the ducks physical bill on the ducks face, or the bill (or tab) that the duck was running up by purchasing products. He'll see one or the other, he won't see both. Then he'll think you're crazy, and possibly dangerous. Why are you babbling nonsense ? Are you going to get violent next ? Are you insane in the literal clinical sense ? And it goes down hill from there.

   He honestly believed he was the only sane person on the planet , and that everyone else was crazy. That the lunatics were running the insane asylem and there was nothing he could do about it.

   The Royal Ottawa Hospital (the local mental institute) wasn't much help. As far as they were concerned, if they could get him to pretend to be sort of normal , long enough to hit the grocery store and come back, they didn't care how much he howled at the moon when he was home, or what craziness he engaged in. There's a shortage of beds in the mental institute, and this guy can at least care for himself and isn't a danger to the public, let him loose.

   I spoke with him over many emails , he refused to meet in person , and I quickly figured out that would be a bad idea, and I got the distinct impression of the old Opera singers. The ones that could hit ridiculously high notes because they'd been castrated before puberty , and who never really complained about the inability to have sex, because they'd never had that ability in the first place. How can you miss something you've never had ?

   There were pieces of his brain , empathy , and holistic thought (seeing the big picture) and understanding double meanings ... these were not functioning in him. And apparently , they'd never been functioning. He was vaguely aware of the words, probably others had informed him of this as well , but they meant nothing to him. How could he miss something he'd never had ? A blind man may hear of the wonders of sight , but if he's been blind from birth and never seen , he's just going to ignore you when you speak on that topic.

   He doesn't like the modern definition of autism. He's able to quote it to me , but he doesn't believe in it. He speaks of a much older definition , apparently from the time of world war II. Hitler's people first diagnosed Asperger's syndrome , it seemed, and their definition was "every smart person on the planet". And they had plans to elminate all of the Asperger Sufferers. But the problem was, they needed smart people for science and engineering and winning the war ...

   I mentioned the inability to see the larger picture ? He was never able to resolve that inherent conflict between "kill all the smart people" and "we need smart people to win the war" . He alternates between thinking about one , and thinking about the other. He doesn't even see they are opposites and you can only walk down one of those paths.

   And he's got a touch of parania. He believes to this day there is a world wide conspiracy to kill the smart people. And he lacks the ability to notice he's 70 , and in good health , and receiving free health care in canada , despite the government already knowing his relatively high IQ . That's not the actions of some organization out to kill you. But he can't see that , and he hangs onto his belief that they're coming to get him. Some day. Don't bother joking about they'd better hurry or he'll die of old age first, he won't see the funny.

   In fergusan Missouri a white cop shot a black man.

   The initial forensic report showed it was a black hood who tried to get the cops gun , got a few bullets for his trouble , and eventually wound up dead by lead poisoning. Pow pow. Open and shut case end of story. Hey there was even a witness, a black guy , testifying to the whole thing.

   Months later , it turns out the witness lied, and the cop had in fact shot the guy at point blank range while standing over him , and the bullets entered through the black mans skull and went down into his torso. Guy had been on his knee's and the cop executed him.

   Relevance to my story ?

   To this day , every white guy in america quotes the first , erronious forensic report as if it were gospel , and think you're crazy , or prejudiced , if you disagee with them. Every black guy quotes the second autopsy showing a very different version of events, one in which that unarmed black man was executed.

   And both sides stick to their guns.

   There was even a report from the Department of Justice showing wide spread corruption and persecution of the black man . One white man read just a piece of the report noted that even dogs were being blamed for being racists and dismissed the report . (Hint...the dogs bite who their police masters tell them to bite, they don't choose on their own...back to a human made decision !)

   It's like everyone in the world has Aspergers. They believe what they like , and they ignore any evidence they don't like. And if you disagree with them, you're part of the racist movement twisting events all out of shape (which shape ? depends on which side you're talking to). And they honestly believe what they're saying. They're bullet proof. Firing facts at them doesn't work  , they ignore those facts.

   Sometimes I wonder if they have Aspergers, or if it's a "filter" problem. They live in a world where everyone lies to them and they filter it out, to the point where they're now filtering out the truth as well.

   My friend in the email was born in the age of world war II. Hitler was in his youth. It was the first thing he learned as he grew up , I suppose it's natural for him to hang onto it all the days of his life. Perhaps he's not paranoid after all. Perhaps he simply learned his lessons very well as a boy , and it's way too late for this old dog to learn new tricks.

   The disturbing thing is , American Newspapers are very quick to print blame articals when something happens , bold and on the first page, and when they find out the truth , it's months later and a little tiny article near the back page. Leaving a lot of Americans with false information. Information they will defend for the rest of their lives.

   What good is a news service that openly lies to you ?

   My friend in the email was my father. And he taught me one more lesson as well. When my mother decided to dump him and never speak to him again , she did me a real big favor. Guy is as fruity as a nut cake, and is likely due for another stay in the Royal Ottawa. His ability to pass for minimally sane is slipping.

   I "lost" (read that erased) the email address and never speak to him again.

   Lesson to everyone out there. When looking up your long lost Father or mother or brother or such ... leave an escape route. There may be very good reasons that he 's long lost.
