Why Angry Gay Pope won't buy a smartphone

Postby AngryGayPope » Thu Feb 11, 2016 7:52 pm

When I, his horniness the Angry Gay Pope, choose to protest Sci in person I always turn my cell phone off because I know they are spying on my location with it when I am in the neighborhood. They know where I am as if I were a tagged animal.

That's why I don't own a smart phone. Plus, I get arrested on false charges a LOT. So I don't want crooked cops putting fake kiddie porn in my "smart" phone and entrapping me after an arrest. They take your phone but let you get numbers off it.

The Mike Rinder/Marty Rathbun show has been interrupted before by even more aggressive spying when cult PI's ended up following them all the time using their cell phone locations as a beacon. Thank goodness I am merely a WOG SP not an APOSTATE as Rinder and Rathbun are. I merit only a fraction of the attention but you see my point.

The New York Times just did a story about how the NYPC is using the same tech to spy on people without warrants. The device is called a STINGRAY.

Here is an example of what I am told is a cell phone snooper antenna at Big Blue (PAC base) in Hollywood.

Fortunately my signal has to be teased out of the background noise of other callers, but my point is clear. I will stick with my "clamshell" dumb phone for now.

There is another device that does the opposite, a cell phone blocker. Certain hotels have been caught using them (illegally) to prevent their customers from using cell phones in their hotel rooms. They lose a lot of revenue when they can't control your communications where you stay and make you pay for it. Try $20 a day internet fees! Arrgghh!

A couple of my favorite restaurants use cell phone blockers to keep customers from annoying other diners by taking calls instead of going outside.

Those who know about them don't complain. :lol:
