I have made that fact abundantly and ponderously clear on many occasions.
My really observant readers…both of you...have probably noted that I am more than little bit grouchy lately.
I have no real good reason for my surlier-than-usual attitude.
I mean…it looks like O’Vomit is gonna get his head kicked in November 6th, positive developments are bubbling to the surface on the personal employment scene (more on this later), I and my family are healthy, the sun is shining, the birds are buzzing, and the bees are chirping.
And who could forget that I recently had an “illuminating” experience with local law enforcement?
What the hell do I have to bitch about?
Maybe it’s because my eyes are open.
Every day I see metric ass-tons of military hardware heading east on Interstate 70.
We’re done in Iraq.
Afghanistan is “winding down,” yet I see flat-bed after flat-bed of military trucks, wheeled APCs, and armored Hummers equipped with strange looking satellite dish thingies on top where the gun mount would normally be.
Oddly enough, the gear I've seen looks exactly like this.
Could these dish doo-dads be those screeching sound emitters used to control crowds? Or, as the above graphic details, an "energy beam" which cooks the skin? I sure as fuck don’t know.
Maybe I should consult Alex Jones.
Where is all this military hardware going?
The east coast…where huge numbers of the recipient class reside…folks who will be displeased when the government tit gets shut off? Folks who may riot when O’Vomit loses the election?
I’ll be rolled in crackers if I know, but surely all this gear isn’t still being sent overseas…is it?
Another interesting observation from the road is some goings-on at the scale house on I-70 in Richmond, Indiana.
I roll through this “chicken coop” every day, and I keep a close eye out for FEMA/DHS thuggery.
This week things seemed to be ratcheting up there.
New cameras and sensors popping up all over the place, and Friday morning I saw a festive circus tent set up with displays and throngs of interested government agents milling about.
Hell…they even had a big rig parked there as part of the demonstration, and the truck was donated by a treasonous trucking company! (I don’t recall the name of the truck line. I’m getting old and feeble, and I can collect only so much intel as I carefully roll over the scales. Sorry.)
Later that day, I heard this news report on a local radio station:
“State officials today unveiled what they call cutting-edge technology designed to revolutionize truck inspections across Indiana.
Department of Revenue Spokesman Bob Dittmer says the technology is still in the pilot phase. They're trying it out at the Richmond Inspection Facility on Interstate 70. Dittmer says the goal is to make highways safer in Indiana, Ohio and Illinois. He says the state unveiled two technologies in cooperation with Help Inc.
He says the first technology allows inspection stations to electronically get information directly from trucks about a mile before they hit inspection stations. Dittmer says the other technology is called "360 Smart View." It's used inside the inspection station. The technology takes photos of license plates and the vehicle certification information pops up on a computer screen in the station. Dittmer says the technology means truck inspection stops will last seconds compared to minutes.
Dittmer anticipates the technology could be installed at inspection stations across the state. He says they also believe the technology could save the state money over time.”
Yeah. Sure. It’s all about safety and saving time, fuel, and money.
…and that shit only takes pictures, and those pictures are only shots of the license plate, company name, and DOT numbers of commercial vehicles.
Lookie here, government ass-bags. I neither want nor need you to baby-sit me or spy on me.
Fuck you very much.
I believe that gear is gathering info on EVERBODY. Not just commercial vehicles.
By the way…a great big hearty FUCK YOU to Help Inc as well.
They are the slimy assholes that provided the technology to the Richmond scale house.
For fucking FREE!
It didn’t cost the state of Indiana a fucking dime.
Isn’t that special?
Yeah…it’s all about safety, dontcha know.
Nice work, shit-heads…
Sell your fucking soul to the state of Indiana.
Maybe the state will be so impressed with your spy technology that you will get a huge government contract and your shit will be hanging from every lamppost in Indiana.
So yesterday I drove through the Richmond area and dully noted the new spy gear lovingly installed by Help Inc. (I’ll try to take pics and video next time.)
As I rolled underneath the cameras and sensors on my way to the weigh station, I gave them a spirited double-fingered horizontal salute that would have looked a little something like this.
I still had my hands at 10 and 2.
It’s all about safety, dontcha know.
