PRISM- Private Financial Data Control Program

My name is Diallo Burke and I am an entrepreneur from College Park, Georgia. I used to be considered intelligent or gifted, but while attending an early college I was labeled bipolar by the education system. This was because I believed with all my heart and to this day that the government stole my idea for using algae to produce ethanol with top secret government research or using PRISM. I ended up dropping out instead of finishing my last year as a double major in Environmental Science and Biology. Since then i have come out with countless ideas that could help people and help protect the environment. A lot of my ideas started showing up in media after posting them on Google,with no credit given to the author. All of my ideas on Google are protected by the Creative Commons License.

Today i came across an article Cloud Print (Free)What’s it about? Google’s Cloud Print app is finally here, allowing users to print from their Android devices to printers connected to their Wi-Fi networks.

What’s cool? At its simplest, Google’s Cloud Print lets users connect a printer to a Wi-Fi network, hook it up with Cloud Print, and then send print jobs to it from any Android device connected to that network. It’s a principle other apps have handled in the past, but Google’s version brings the company’s classic simple and elegant app design along with it. You can monitor your print jobs from the app to see how they’re doing, and send documents and images from your device’s Gallery for printing quickly and easily.

Who’s it for? If you’ve got printers you can access on your Wi-Fi network and want an easy way to print from your phone or tablet, Google has provided it.

What’s it like? Other cloud printing apps include HP e-Print and Cloud Print from developer Paulo Fernandez.

http://www.androidapps.com/tech/articles/13538-new-android-apps-worth-downloading-cloud-print-studyblue-beejumbled

This is an exact copy of an idea i came up with in 2012 and is kept on the Google cloud. The dates and data can be verified through the cloud. I do not know how many of my ideas have been stolen, but i do know that if PRISM was used to terrorize citizens like me , then there is a big potential lawsuit on the governments hands.

Divide and Conquer: Leave Old Friend to the Wolves?

 

In war, alliances and enemies is everything. The questions at the end of the day: Who is the biggest enemy and what is the end game? America, Israel, Russia, China, N.Korea, Lebanon, Great Britain, and so many other powers are involved in the Syrian War. Players are always being added and new alliances begin to form. Hamas a staunch enemy of Israel and America, former ally of Syria and Hezbollah called for Hezbollah to withdraw its troops. Against it’s own best interests last year Hamas withdrew its backing of Syria.

It essentially threw it’s former ally Assad to Israel in the hopes that it could avoid another conflict with Israel. Hamas wants Hezbollah to keep it’s weapons aimed at Israel, but want’s it to ignore an important advanced weapon lifeline and a proxy Western battlefront. Israel and Western powers are trying to gradually take over the middle east by isolating and destroying enemies. Iraq was targeted in the 90’s but only fell recently. Syria was targeted previously but has allies to fall back on in hard times.

Hezbollah gains by remaining in the war. Syria can more easily transfer weapons to an ally, who it is in direct contact with(i.e. fighting alongside them in war) and it keeps a buffer/enemy of Israel/ally in Syria. This is the same dilemma that the West has in arming rebels, if the arm the rebels then weapons will automatically end up in terrorists hands. If the west supplies inferior weapons, then the rebels will be unable to compete with Assad, but if they supply advance weapons then they open hells gate to potential weapons Al Qaeda can get it’s hands on. The fighting stokes social boundaries between Shiites and Sunnis, but the war has the potential to strengthen political power by obtaining victory. It also gives Hamas  already battle hardened soldiers, more experience on the battlefield.

Hamas would be better off obtaining and strengthening alliances in the region, instead of practicing isolationist military policies. Syria and Hezbollah could be a great alliance to join.

America would also be seen as turning it’s back on fighting terror wherever it is. America would be in fact supporting and arming terrorists in a direct political fight. It has the potential to quickly turn southward like Benzhai and Fast and the Furious. The only problem is that traditional media has seen it coming from a mile away.  The real question is: What is the US  government thinking in arming terrorists and was the US government always the terrorists  we were looking for?

United Surveilled America

Obama says that he feels that he has not violated personal freedoms, 1st, or 4th Amendment with the Prism program. New laws(the Patriot Act) and state laws (ordinances against sleeping in public parks) are used to trump the Constitution and the rights of the people. The courts tried to use a similar argument(state law against sleeping in the parks, trumps our right to peacefully assemble) when suppressing riots here in America, which they champion in foreign countries, under the threat of military intervention. This same argument of state law trumping federal law could be used to pass marijuana legislation on a state by state case.

Apple says that it received 5,000 data requests from the government last year. This is where the government admits to pouring over call data but not actually call information. These requests can be National Security, helping to assist in a criminal investigation, locating a child, or one of the hundreds of bureaucratic reasons that the government gives to snoop.

Obama knows that some people are uneasy about the programs, but like all political scandals he welcomes a limited political debate where the people still have no power(only bureaucracy can write legislation) .He claims that terrorists attacks have been stopped by the network, but at what costs. He continued a Bush era surveillance program, that steps on the worlds civil rights.

This is a scary program,once you look at it. The government basically controls all phone, internet, and communication data in the world. One rogue person, worker, bureaucrat, hacker, or business has the potential to access all of the worlds secrets at a push of the button. The government has access to all of your videos, private pictures, numbers, and a picture of all of your activities at it’s fingertips. It’s like building a personal data network on each individuals electronic actions, autonomously through a computer program or PRISM. This system could be used for intimidation, trade secret theft, blackmail, and for inside information to play the markets. Oversight on secret programs like this are usually very relaxed, because only a handful know their true purposes.
I am surprised that more people have not expressed more alarm at this program. We are knowingly and unknowingly handing our lives over to the government. The government started the program in secrecy. ,but once we receive the information it is our time to react. The government can essentially act as a gatekeeper of information and steal what information it can from the poor under the disguise of National Security. The government could have access to all of the information on energy, weapons, innovation, and technology by looking for key words in conversations. The pursuit of terrorists and the protection of the USA from future attacks may cost us more than electronic monitoring, it may cost us our intellectual futures.

United Serfdom- Cutting Foodstamps

Protests have been raging in North Carolina and its not Occupy. NAACP’s “Moral Monday’s” has transformed into a movement where hundreds have been handcuffed in the last two months in a show of solidarity for the countries poor. GOP have referenced the bible in their attacks on food stamps and programs for the poor. This has hit a chord in the black and religious bible belt of the south.

Contemporary GOP argue that the por need private charity, jobs, and self reliance instead of government handouts. This ignores the fact that their are a limited amount of wealthy donors(less than usual because of the recession and nearly stagnant recovery) and dollars as the price of living and food continues to skyrocket. GOP also ignore the fact that the jobs market is still recovering slowly, workers wages are at record lows compared to Ceo pay, and the workforce has to compete with a global workforce that can operate at a much cheaper man hour price.

The GOP wants to continue to give bush era tax cuts, while following the age old American policy of cuts to the nearly bankrupt Medicaid program,raise taxes on middle class families, and restrict access to the state run pre-k program. The NAACP has vowed to carry on the protests indefinitely until change is brought. The protesters know that change won’t be immediate, but they vow to continue to fight until the end.

Tomocracy (Totalitarian Democracy)

I am an American and a patriot at heart, but our country has a lot of secrets to hide. We now allow for the government to willing monitor all forms of “free communications’ in the name of protection, we allow for the president to seemingly go to war at will (because we have been in a constant state of war since 9/11), and our legislators continue to line their own pockets with our money (We are indentured servants paying off the Politicians playhouse bill).

The government is currently building a case against former NSA worker Snowden. Snowden alleges that even as we call China a cyber hacker, we engage in similar attacks on China’s main Information Traffic Router in Hong Kong. Snowden alleges that the government targets public officials, businessmen, and students.

The attacks began in 2009 and focused mainly on information hubs(places where all information is filtered through) so that the government could have access to the countries entire database.Similar information could be happening domestically and could be used to fatten the pockets of officials, workers, and/or government. Media outlets have likened it to a thief calling another thief a thief, as cyber warfare is an important part of the U.S. military industrial complex.

Taxing the Poor- Cuts to Food Stamps?

I used to be sold on the idea of Obama, Democracy, and the American Dream. This was before I realized what Capitalism and our way of living meant. Capitalism is a system of inequality and a system built on division. It teaches us that we have to work hard, that we have to work to accumulate(super wealthy and super poor), and that it teaches us to value the individual in the hopes of personal success. Capitalism will never be a system for the people, because it is built on the principle that for one person to have, another person must lose.

The Dow has made remarkable returns since the economic downturn, businesses sit on huge stashes of cash, and the parties still disagree on how to fix a floundering U.S. economy as we rake up billions in government debt. Congress now begins on how much to cut from food entitlement programs mainly food stamps. After passing a farm bill that is aimed at protecting growers over the general population, even as the United States and most developed countries continue to produce more food than is consumed.

The bill passed in the Senate 66-27 and now heads to the House. Estimates range from 4 billion over 10 years to 20 billion over 10 years. The people who are supposed to have the best interests of the people decide to cut down on food assistance, during a time when jobs are hard to go by and product price inflation continues to outpace average worker wage growth. This amounts to a slap in the face of the poor as some corporations continue to legally pay no taxes but social programs such as education, food, and assistance for the poor continues to get taxed.
