Reducing top-secret gov’t agency waste


Another blog post?

Dude, you’re rolling out these blog posts like there’s not tomorrow!”

There is a tomorrow, but, yes, I’m putting more on my blog about my discoveries than before.

No surprise here, but according to The Washington Post, there is a huge underground world to our/my/the US government.

It is so big that these government agencies are out of sync. Information is not shared between agencies and there is lots of overlap in the intel gathered.

And in overlap there is waste.

As you can read in a previous post, I am very against government waste. I’m not paying taxes other than sales/consumption taxes right now, but I will be in the future. I don’t want to see waste.

You can read more about this from the link above, and come back after you’re done.

I propose a plan to reduce and eventually eliminate waste coming from these sources.

Step #1: create a central server that all governments (non-US) and agencies can access, containing intel gathered about possible terrorist attacks and allowing the submission of intel relating to possible terrorist attacks.

Step #2: make a website [public beta] posting all general data (being expected date and location, weapon type[s]) of possible terrorist attacks, accessible by anyone with an internet connection. Allow connection with social media to raise public awareness of potential events.

Step #3: develop and deploy algorithms assessing threat of attacks based on intel. Things that should make events rank higher or more “critical”; # of potential casualties/target size/target type, intel that states an attack may happen on or close to a specific date/holiday like Christmas or national holidays like various countries’ Independence Days, executer and affiliated organization (is the executer part of a major terrorist organization or even a higher-up in one?) etc.

Step #4: take public website out of beta and use algorithms of step #3 to organize data. Further organize data by HTML5 location detection. i.e. If user is detected to be accessing website from Frankfurt, Germany, relevant information relating to potential terrorist attacks in Germany is put on top of website and furthermore those relating to Frankfurt are prioritized.

With the first step waste is reduced to improve inter-agency cooperation and synchronization.
The second step raises public awareness.
The third filters threats and organizes them, boosting productivity.
The fourth takes the second step further and optimizes public awareness.

The power is with the people. The government can’t stop everything. Empower the people, and prevent attacks.

And this blog post, and this whole blog maybe, is going to end up in the pile of intel of “beginning terrorists”. Oh well.

It’s a new year!

Sorry for the long delays between posts.

I’m a good procrastinator.

Apparently, it’s become 2012.

Apparently, the world will end on December 21st of this year.

Which, IMNSHO (In My Not-So-Humble Opinion,) is pretty absurd.

Because there are several problems to having an exact date or time to an apocalypse or, for that matter, pretty much any global event.

Living in more than one country kinda makes you realize that dates can be different at the same time across the globe.

For example, at the current time, it’s about 4 PM in Japan on the 2nd of January. In San Francisco, it’s 11 PM on the 1st of January. In SF, people are still recovering from their hangovers of the previous night’s partying. Here, in Japan, people are gearing up for work tomorrow.

No place in the world will have the same date at the same time.

So, there can be no exact date or time UNLESS a time zone is specified. Though still not believable, if the apocalypse were set to December 21st, 2012, at 12 PM GMT/UTC, the “apocalypse” would become plausible.

Still, since the Bible mentions multiple times (Mark 24:36, Acts 1:7, and more) that ‘no one knows the exact date’, I won’t believe any claims of people knowing the date or time of the end of the earth.

And since this blog post on thinks that I have a weak argument, let me ramble on.

Revelation is a pretty interesting book. It’s pretty very insane and everything inside makes you think “WTF!?” I encourage you to read it through once.

You think we’re in a pretty bad situation economically and/or have lots of natural disasters (Japan just had another M7.0 earthquake the other day. Don’t worry, as far as I know, only one person was hurt and that person tripped and dislocated a shoulder.)

According to Revelation, things are going to get a lot harder when the end of the world (as we know it) is near.

I’m not looking forward to the bad things, but what needs to happen has to happen. And until then, I won’t be scared by any apocalyptic claims.

Oh, and Harold Camping, you’re one of the reasons a lot of people think that Christians are douches. Thanks for all you’ve done to (further) ruin our reputation.
