Current Events [Group Posting]

1:35 PM And I thought I would do a group posting on some current events regarding some topics that some people have submitted.  Ok, here goes...

Q. Is the NSA spying on citizens more than we know? I also wondered if the spying was meant to keep tabs on members of congress, house and senators. 
A. The first thing I see is a room filled with people wearing blue tooth head phones and I hear all kinds of white noise.  I can't quite make out what is being said, it is more a quite mumble of a lot of different voices.  It looks like almost anyone can be tapped into at any time; however, most people are over looked.  I see that there are many recordings going on, and there is software to listen for certain key words, but rarely is person doing all the listening.  It looks like if certain key words are used, you are flagged, and then a person will be tuning into you.  

Then I ask myself, what if someone talks in code?  The answer I get is that if someone talks in code, they can many times fly under the radar, but depending on where the going (for example certain areas overseas are more highly monitored) that call is more likely to be analyzed.  

There is also some kind of data profiling happening, such as being able to link phone calls with internet searches with volume of phone traffic, texts, etc that helps NSA folks to cross reference transactions to see who is of interest.  

I don't see this spying as being specific to congress or government officials. I see it being used very widespread.  

Q. Another item of interest: Are there FEMA camps? (I believe the are also called "long term retention centers" What is your opinion of these camps and do you see them being used in the future?
A.  It just popped in my mind that even though they may be called FEMA camps or long term retention centers, they are often referred to by FEMA as detention centers.  They do exist, and I a get the reason they are here is to corral people in the event of a catastrophe to cut back on some of the chaos.  I see the master plan for these started around the time of Katrina.  Government wanted to avoid that type of chaos, so the solution was to pack people into these camps and create an illusion that their best interest was in mind.  

I get that these camps will be used for man made, natural or pandemic type situations.  I keep hearing the word "flu" in my head.  

I also get these camps will sound great in order to get people there willingly, but they evolve into some type of manual labor camp.  I see people pounding metal with hammers.  In my mind it looks more like a work camp paying little to nothing for manual labor in exchange for "protection," food and water.  

Q. I am curious on how the gaming industry would look like within the next 10 years. The next generation of consoles have recently been launched and gaming has been very much in the mainstream for a good period of time, but there is a concern that the industry could suffer a crash similar to that of 1983. Is a crash imminent or is it only a gradual decline? How are things expected to look in regards to console gaming? Handheld gaming? PC gaming? Are there any particular innovations that will be seen as revolutionary?
A.  The first image I get is the movie "Paranoia" and I see that people in the gaming industry are looking for the next best things. Almost like the gaming isn't what is going to keep the industry alive regardless of how good the game is or the programming is behind it, it will have to do with the hardware.  I see interactive games where people are wearing 3D helmets and I also see some kind of a chair that actually has feedback when the game being played to make the person feel as though they are there in real life.  

I don't see a crash, but I see a lot of intensity on keeping up with competitors and creating this real life gaming feel.  I see industry heading there, starting small and growing fast in that direction.  

I ask myself if it will be full body, and the answer I get is no because most people want to relax when they play and also be able to play for extended periods of time.  There will be some full body model versions, but the more successful revolve around the full helmet and the chair.  I also see a little to do with voice recognition, but still a controller is used.  

Q. There was this interesting news topic about the moon missions of china.They claim to search for minerals and metals that are an shortage of on earth. Why is china still going to the moon while the usa have already abandoned it. Maybe they have some catching up to do? Or is there another agenda going on?
A.  I do see they want to catch up to what the US says its done, but I see skepticism, as if they don't believe we have been there and want to prove us wrong.  I see a lot of what they do is try to discredit the US (not even just technology, financially, but pretty much everything.)  I don't see that they have landed ?, but they have been around the moon.  I see a lot of exploring, but it looks like robots, not people there.  This really feels more exploratory than anything, like they want to see what is there, what can used, and I see some kind of white substance that tastes very chalky that they hope to find.  It is super fine power that has a sharpness when you rub it in your hand, but yet it is finer that talc. [like powdered glass]

Q. What do you see on medical marijuana, the future of it in general and the use of hemp in the future 
A. I see marijuana as becoming legal in most states over the next four years.  I see this being a big topic during the next election. I also keep hearing Phillip Morris, as if this company wants to start manufacturing it, and it is working on it now.  I also see it being taxed at least equal to if not more than cigarrettes.  Some states will make it legal to buy over the counter, and I see other states requiring a prescription to use it, and it will be bought through pharmacies.  I see big changes in the views of marijuana over the next few years.  I also am hearing message that they are working on studies now to support the claim that it can beneficial, so all the negative stuff that has been documented is being reworked so they are able to push this through.

Q We are hearing about the contamination of the drinking water for a town in West VirginiaThe chemical was poured directly into the river, and the company responsible for this, did not report it. Was this a terrorist act, and what are the long term damages?
A.  The first thing I get is that it isn't a terrorist act, it was because of a negligent company.  They weren't inspected, and did things on the cheap in order to make money.  I also get that the CEO and higher people in the company don't live in that area, and have little respect for the environment.  They didn't even consider the result of not maintaining their equipment or following EPA guidelines.  The effects will last a long while because this will all need flushed out and the chemicals will just continue to move downstream and contaminate other areas along the river.  Not all filtration systems are equipped to filter this type of chemical.  They aren't releasing the real effects of this because they don't want to create hysteria.  For sensitive people I see huge rashes, they look like sunburns.  I also see a lot of digestive issues (I feel a burn in my throat as I even tune into this).  It looks like the mouth and throat are the most effected.  In rare cases there are immune issues - as if the immune system is attacked.  

Q. Is it possible to hear a little bit more about the financial situation for 2014 - 2016, what is going to be a safe haven for wealth preservation beside gold and silver, how high will bitcoin and silver go, and when do you see a game over for bitcoin? What about real estate? 
A.  I see the stock market as a complete roller coaster.  I also get that the stock market can make money, but it is real gamble and you have to know what you are doing.  There really are no safe stocks, you just have to know how to read trends if you want money otherwise you investment will average a flat return (meaning you will end up with what you started with overall).  

I do see gold and silver, along with tangible assets being safe.  I also see real estate, mainly land being a high value item. Whether it is flat land for farming or woodsy for hunting, I see it holding value.  I also see the hotspots being close to, but not inside the city.  AND close to but not on a main road.  

I don't have a top out value for silver or bitcoin, but I can say that bitcoin "feels" like it is about maxed out.  I don't see it lasting more than a few more years.  I see silver rising on a chart but never reaching its "true" value in respect to gold.  I see stacks and stacks of paper being thrown down, cluing me in that the paper silver is still diluting the real silver, and that has to be waited out. That dilution is going to happen until the dollar is highly devalued because I get the rich are buying the real silver and diluting with paper as a backup for when the dollar starts to crash.  

When is the dollar crashing....?  Um, I feels to the future, but not too far out.  My gut is telling me sometime in 2015 it will be obvious by how the stock market and consumer items such as gasoline and food are priced.  There will be a trend and then there will be a radical break from the trend, and we will know.

And that is all I have for now, it is 2:28 PM. Thank you.  Link to Audio.
