[ Why would I be Targeted ]
I am eccentric. I am reclusive. I am independent. I can be outspoken. I am strongly principled. I am extra-perceptive. I can be ostentatious (I'd sport a full-length black Mink coat if I weren't living in Texas). I have Broad Autistic Phenotypic traits which add a little quirkiness to my personality. I'm a walking-dichotomy --- I spent the first 20 some years of my life studying art and the next years studying science. I'm an educated and working scientist with chemical knowledge. I've worked with weapons of mass destruction in previous employment. I'm as comfortable on the streets as I am in the books. I enjoy triple-digit speed limits. I've jumped off cliffs, out of planes and off of 10-story high cranes, played contact sports and the only scar I have to bear is from a broken finger at the age of six. I don't really fit my age, physically or in personality. I don't exercise, but I can perform one-arm push-ups, double-clap push-ups and four-finger pull-ups, on demand. I've been around the world and back. I'm a minimalist. I've been self-trained in survivalism since the early 1990's. I know guns. I have multicultural interests. I'm a male. I have eclectic tastes. I'm single. I'm diverse in applying technology. I place high value on security and privacy. I'm cautious. I skirt grey areas. I have denounced the Christian faith I was raised by due to its hypocrisy, myths it has borrowed from more ancient religions, and the worldly turmoil its history has wrought mankind. I openly hold disdain for "vulgar displays of authority," especially by those who are supported by my tax dollars.
I'd say that someone with this odd assortment of characteristics might just catch the eye of an all-seeing Big Brother!
With everything said, I have no criminal record and have never been accused of a crime. Even my enemies ( if I even had any before the surveillance began ) would tell you that I'm a generally respectful and decent person. My assertive stance stems from the provoking tactics employed by these government sponsored programs. I'm not unique in this regard. The government has proven, time and time again, that they have a knack for creating hate and resentment in peoples around this world.
For demographic purposes, I am a secular, professional, blue-eyed, brown haired white man with no particular political affiliation.
On October 5, 2016, I had a "knocking" at my door by an individual whom described himself as a neighbor who was in the military and whom wanted to "warn" me. I had previously observed this individual walking around my backyard at odd hours, while looking at my property. He fit the quintessential description for a "special ops" or task-force type of individual. He elaborated that he had overheard some neighbors in the area talking about "drug dealers" and "sex offenders" in the area and that my location was mentioned in the topic of conversation. He stated that he didn't see me causing any problems and he felt like I should be aware that I was being "Watched." I consider this encounter a confirmation of all the harassment that I've proclaimed !
Whether or not, and how, my name could exist on "blacklists" or "watchlists" may remain unknown, but the preceding information and "odd assortment of characteristics" describing myself at the top of this page probably hold some answers as to why I have become a Targeted Individual. Yet, along with never being accused of a crime and having a clean record, none of these potential reasons can justify the constitutional and human rights violations that have occurred !
I can only imagine the percentage of minority and Muslim Americans that must be victimized by this over-reaching surveillance program because, as you can see from the picture above, I'm just a white-bread American. [dixi]
