Have any of you see the new tv show called Person of Interest? It’s about these two guys, Mr. Finch (Michael Emerson) and John Reese (Jim Caviezel). They are able to see if something BAD is going to happen in public government camera’s that are everywhere (that I have never even noticed before) and they go in and change the course of events so instead of a child disappearing or someone being murdered or raped, they step in and stop the bad. Here’s a clip from Good Question.
Mr. Finch is a super rich nerdy guy who designed all these camera’s for the government so he knows the ins and outs of everything. I’m not going to get into the whole show but it’s a very good show.
But this is real life. Since this show started I’ve become aware (because I paid attention and looked) of just how many camera’s are EVERYWHERE we go. It’s called The Patriot Act and it’s been in place since 911 but were you aware of it to this extent? I sure wasn’t. I was in shock to realize all this.
How does this make you feel? You’re alone somewhere and voila, you’re really not. There could be a whole crew of people watching you ride up a floor in an elevator. Or sitting alone on a park bench reading a book and picking your nose!
On one hand, I don’t like it. It’s so intrusive to be watched like that. I’m sure in some huge metropolitan places, they might even be able to peek into your home. But, on the other hand, if someone went missing or got hurt in any way, there they’d be and they could really help.
I’m not really sure how I feel. How about you? Safe or spied upon? Just be sure how you’re facing when you go to pull out a wedgie or it could end up on the news!
That WAS to be the end of my post but since I wrote it, this “funny” thing happened and it’s got me rethinking all this stuff.
My cousin Joseph was coming for a visit. He googled our address somehow. I don’t know how it all works but the first time he got directions they were wrong and then I think he did a different search and got pictures. He may come on and explain what he did. This is a church not far from our house and I was flabbergasted when I saw it. I thought who in the world took this?
The next photo is a shot right up our driveway.
I have no idea how to change that file but it kind of works. Just click twice on the links. If enlarged, this thing you can see our house. I literally couldn’t speak when I saw it. I often take the garbage out in my pj’s or run out and start the car with things on that I’d hate to be seen like that around the world. This means someone stopped right in front of my house, got out and took this picture. I mean really, I live way out in the middle of nowhere. Who comes and takes these things? It’s really very creepy when you get right down to it.
I’m not sure how I feel about all this now. Who really needs this kind of information?
What do you all think about this? You better close your drapes or blinds.
