"Land Of The Free" No More

"The relationship between those who are constantly watched and tracked, and those who watch and track them, is the relationship between masters and slaves."

Yesterday, Bloomberg published a lengthy expose on a company called Persistent Surveillance Systems, which has been secretly surveilling the people of Baltimore on behalf of the police since January.

The article is titled, 'Secret Cameras Record Baltimore’s Every Move From Above', and here are some choice excerpts:

Pritchett had no idea that as he spoke, a small Cessna airplane equipped with a sophisticated array of cameras was circling Baltimore at roughly the same altitude as the massing clouds. The plane’s wide-angle cameras captured an area of roughly 30 square miles and continuously transmitted real-time images to analysts on the ground. The footage from the plane was instantly archived and stored on massive hard drives, allowing analysts to review it weeks later if necessary.

Since the beginning of the year, the Baltimore Police Department had been using the plane to investigate all sorts of crimes, from property thefts to shootings. The Cessna sometimes flew above the city for as many as 10 hours a day, and the public had no idea it was there.

Realistically, the entire "war on terror" was a scam designed to allow the government to throw the US Constitution under the bus for the benefit of the deep state and its corporate backers. We The People are their vassals, and I doubt there's any going back.

By the way, Dayton (the home of Persistent Surveillance Systems) also is the home of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base ( Do you suppose there is any connection between the two?

I don't know about you, but I am tired of the US military being used against us (and that includes military retirees and contractors).
