Think about the POWER of Iwatch. Don't like somebody, just go look through the hundred thousand laws or so and report, let the police decide if they are a threat.

Actually you just gave me an idea.

I'm going to look through http://www.dumblaws.com/ and find the most inane offenses and call the police and report them.

Maybe I won't really do it, but it could be funny.

You know that sounds awesome. Any time you run into a statist you call in on them. It reminds me of what stopped the stazi, Warehouses of paperwork and no way to look through it all.

This one is just as good as the previous vid.

[youtube=425,350]--bgb2SMpZo[/youtube]


1. Have you employed a celebrity to further your message? Check.
2. Is the background music ominous enough, and are your graphics comparable to those seen on network news? Check.
3. Did you reference NineEleven? Check. Oh you mentioned the OK bombings as well? Bonus! Footage of both tragedies? Headshot!
4. Have you staged reenactments to help the viewing audience understand what it is they are expected to do? Check.
5. Are the authorities in your production stone-faced and ready to defend America, and is there footage of mean looking police cruisers with lights flashing? Check.
6. Have you referenced what "experts say" in your clip? Check.
7. Does your project have an acronym (this is a must-have for all serious PR projects) ? Check.
8. Repeat the message repeat the message... repeat the message? Check.
9. *Have you reenacted crime methods that the bad guys will be witnessed doing so citizens will now exactly what to look for? Check.

*Interesting to note that in this video the core evildoers are white people. The evil lady does have dark hair and somewhat thick eyebrows, but her face is not covered and I think she may even be wearing shorts, so I assume she is a white devil. There is also a black male featured as a fiend, but absent are any no-gooders of Arabic or Middle Eastern appearance. In fact I didn't even see a beard on any of the culprits. So apparently the average terrorist is a white male, 22-30 years old, perhaps edgy looking, like a Moto-Cross rider.

***

I'm always curious to see if I can learn which ad agencies are used to produce these vids. No luck on the first one, but I did find this link that exposes one of those serious, weepy citizens with half their face blurred out to draw the viewer into the film as if it is an work of art as being an actor! Who knew that the chubby guy is actually..... "Mr. Pringles the Pervert" ?!

According to the broad definition of terrorism, and with iWatch's recommendation to report anything I see, hear, or smell that may be suspicious, I should make a report every time I smell bacon.

Oh, wait, the police don't count as domestic terrorism. Nevermind.

Because the people that get to define terrorism FOR us are the ones that use it against us, naturally.
