Oh!

...I almost forgot.

I posted this photo on the fb on January 11th, 2020.  It is a picture of a picture.  The original photo was taken with a Kodak Instamatic camera shooting a 126 cassette on 9 June 1973.  My wedding day.  The folks in the photo are my baby sister and my youngest brother.  The photo has faded and lost some of it's luster with age...  What happened when I posted this photo on fb should scare the crap out of any reasonable person.  fb's facial recognition software instantly and correctly identified my brother in the photo.  A picture of a 46 1/2 year old picture of a youngster in a church basement, taken through the acetate page cover of a photo album.  Not a good picture to begin with.  The photo I took of that picture with my cell phone loses even more quality.  And he was correctly identified.  Immediately.

Orwell was far ahead of his time.  Dick Tracy is real.  Star Trek is the future.

There is no going back.  There are no do-overs.

America has become a database for (political, governmental, advertising, and financial) tyrants to use as they see fit.  There are cameras taking your photo on every street corner, at every ATM, in every bank, pharmacy, grocery store, convenience store, and gas station that you walk into.  Your picture is taken at every fast food drive thru that you go through.  Every court house, office building, and apartment complex. 

And at your friendly neighborhood DMV...

And Americans see this as good.

Have a nice day.



Peace.

Photo quality scarcely matters to a computer, Blue. The software makes identification based entirely on math, by measuring the proportions between facial features.

It's crazy, no? :) I was surprised.

When my wife last renewed her driver license the lady told her she could smile if she wanted to, but could show no teeth. Judy knew immediately what was up, so she asked... "Why is that?" The lady at the IDOT hemmed and hawed, but Judy was persistent. She finally admitted to Judy that her photo would be put into a facial recognition database (for Real ID). I wonder if the facebook database is more sophisticated than the government's database? I'm sure they talk, eh...? :)

Loan Opportunity Offered By Mr, Benjamin That Save My Family From Financial Bondage {lfdsloans@lemeridianfds.com}

Hello Everyone, I am Putri Adiratnaa single mom from Jakarta, I would like to share this great testimony on how I got a loan from Mr, Benjamin, when we were driven out of our home when I couldn't pay my bills anymore, After being scammed by various companies online and denied a loan from my bank and some other credit union I visited. My children were taken by the foster care, I was all alone in the street. The day i shamefully walked into an old school mate who introduced me to Daisy Maureen. At first I told her that I am not ready to take any risk of requesting a loan online anymore, but she assured me that I will receive my loan from them. On a second thought, due to my homelessness I had to take a trial and applied for the loan, luckily for me I received a loan of $80,000.00 from Mr, Benjamin. I'm happy I took the risk and applied for the loan. My kids have been given back to me and now I own a home and a business of my own. All thanks and gratitude goes to Le_Meridian Funding Service and for the help of Mr, Benjamin for giving me a meaning to life when i had lost all hope.
