There is no NSA

They know when you've been sleeping..and where
They know when you’ve been sleeping..and where

…by  Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

Does the NSA know when you walk around the block?  Of course they don’t but Google does and it keeps records of your walks forever.  Not only that, it develops algorithms that examine where you walk, what businesses you might be visiting and profiles your speed, how long your rests are and estimates your personal fitness.

Why do they do that?  You don’t want to know, I can assure you that.

Of course Google tracks every internet search you do.  Every time you type into a search box, they record it, place that into an algorithm and enhance their personal profile of you.  What do you type into search boxes?  Do you even remember?  Have you ever let your curiosity get the best of you and peek at things that might give the wrong impression?  Well those things are now part of your personality inventory by Google, a profile of physical and mental health, sexual proclivities, shopping needs, religious and political beliefs.  It actually goes much further than this.

The NSA does none of this.

Ever use Google Location Services when you are driving.  Most phones have this and with my phone, it turns itself on against my wishes all the time, sometimes several times a day.  This allows Google to see not only where you walk, even inside your own home if you keep your phone with you (like how often you go to the bathroom and based on how long you are there, what you do).

When you drive, you are tracked as well, how fast you drive, where you go, when you stop your car.  They see you when you get your oil changed, they see you when you check into a motel, they see you at the liquor store and when you buy drugs.

They know how often you visit your mother, when you pick your kids up from school, the routes you drive and, of course, your political views, your associations, what you buy online, guns, ammo, pet food, they know it all.

And people worry about the NSA.

  1. And that is why, boys and girls, I do not possess a stupid ass smartphone.
    Sure I have a flip phone, but that thing stays in the house, when I am and out and about. And I don’t use Google.

    For the rest I agree with Ann above!


    • The operating systems that google runs on, such as Windows and Android, do all that google does and more, so it doesnt really matter if you don’t use google because windows is just as bad.

      But its great not to own a cell phone of any type if its possible for your work and lifestyle.

  2. If you don’t like the fact that Google collects and logs your information when you use it as your search engine, then – get ready for a “flat forehead moment” – just stop using Google!

    There are alternatives that advertise that they don’t collect and log user info. Startpage ( is a “front end” for Google; it passes along your search terms with its own, rather than your, IP, preventing Google from associating you with the search. The downside is that it returns Google’s censored results.

    DuckDuckGo ( and ixquick ( are stand-alone search engines, with no connection to Google.

  3. Let’s not forget Uber in this list of villains. Uber is currently mapping out the after hours scenes in all major western cites.

  4. I must say I am quite astonished how failed businessmen end up a few years later as multi billionaires. Some good examples are Peter Monk who parlayed a failed electronics company in eastern Canada into Barrick Gold and more, Gerry Schwartz who drove Investment Overseas into the ditch and ended up at the right hand of two successive Canadian Prime Ministers. Environmentalist Robert Schad who parlayed the invention of a snowmobile that didn’t work into a $billion dollar plastic injection moulding business a few years later and went on to pollute all the world’s oceans with plastic. Then look at the lobby’s Huffington Post getting $300 milion for a web site so poor it paid its writers nothing. And then Paul Godfrey who gets a sports stadium financed by the public for peanuts, runs two newspapers into the ground and ends up smelling like a rose.

    We all know what is going on but you have to be able to prove it to say it and that gets expensive. I once spent a few days with a guy who went to Harvard with the chap who runs facebook. Forget his name but my contact figured he was shoe horned into place by big money. Facebook and Google are just spy systems for the control freaks in black hats.

  5. Google can peep and leer and sneak and spy and snitch and sniff all it likes. In the end they are scaredy cats with no brains. Google is afraid of ordinary Americans. They have access to power and think they’re so smart when they abuse it and think we don’t know. They are sleazy water boys. Or gals as the case may be. They may be many things but they ain’t our kind.

    They have no credibility. They only have the upper hand. For now.

  6. From above:
    “They know when you’ve been sleeping..and where”
    I might add – and with whom.

    Correlation of databases is a big thing, so let’s assume you bought some dog food 5 minutes after the grandfather of a nephew of a friend of someone did who filled up his car at the same station as Bin Laden did 30 years ago, you’re a terrorist.
    Of course with such correlations, with everyone being a terrorist, it’s not unreasonable to understand the sheer panic within our national safety departments.

    You guys still think it’s OK for everyone to have your data because you “ain’t got nothing to hide”?
    Right now i strangely feel drawn to Charlton Heston on this one…
