Don’t Be An Idiot! Get Rid of Alexa!

Who would have ever guessed that the creepy spy gadget that’s listening to everything you do is listening to everything you do? Anyone with half a brain, that’s who. Don’t buy this garbage, and don’t let your friends buy it, either.

Family Removes Alexa Devices After a Stranger in Another Town Heard Everything They Were Saying

Amazon explains how Alexa recorded a private conversation and sent it to another user

Amazon’s Alexa won’t pass on recordings if you don’t set up call features

Yes, Alexa is recording mundane details of your life, and it’s creepy as hell



  1. Actually I’d go a step further than just not having one in my house.

    If I spot one in a friends house, I’ll stop visiting them, but not before I ask them “You have one of those creepy devices in your home?”

    • I don’t even know anyone who has one of these creepy things. Luckily for me, the friends that I have that are dumb enough to buy one are too poor to do so. A happy coincidence. JimBob who don’t count brains for friendship, as honesty will do for him. And not bogarting the joint.

    • The box in my living room is pretty harmless. It’s an analog model and about the only thing it picks up these days is the Big Bang (As in the Universe, not the US Shitcom)

      If I was planning on watching TV, I have worked out it would be cheaper to buy a projector – that way I could just plaster over the hole each time I feel the need to throw a brick at the lying bastards.

  2. VoiceOfArabi says:
    … it is who controls that technology that is the issue.

  3. Just imagining…supposing…

    What if a Hacker got into the Alexa System and perverted its responses?
    “Alexa, Play Country Western.”
    Then “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” plays.

    I am waiting for the day.

    • home remedy supply
      What if rather then playing “twinkle twinkle” your smart house was hacked to defrost and refreeze your freezer repeatedly or lower the cooking temp of your oven so you end up with food borne illness?
      Lunduke did a talk “The Internet of Things is Going to Destroy Us All” which you can see on Ytube. Its worth a laugh but actually factual,

  4. “Willing to pay”, really, what do you think Hollywood movies and Netflix are all about?

    America is rife with us paying for our propaganda.

    Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, all make content for viewer consumption, and it ALL is nothing but Zionist Marxist propaganda. Under all the smiles are carefully crafted narratives: Anti-Christian white male, pro-open borders, multiculturalism, war, Israel, consumerism/capitalism…

    And even below that there are subtle messages about drug use, fatalism, end of the world narratives, trusting of technology and those who sell it…

    We are in a world where the powerful make us pay for the tools of our own destruction, and this is not referring to the future, this started in the 50’s, and look at the shit hole America has become.

    • This is a good point. This reminds me of Edward Bernays and modern propaganda and advertising. They have made these devices “cool” and “hip” to have. I have a TV so I have noticed how in the last few years there has been a bombardment of ads for Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and all the other variations that are now available. There has been a watershed moment, and these devices have officially become mainstream and now seem to be in a lot of families’ homes, just live TV’s are.

      Along the same thought of ‘buying in’ to our own enslavement are the DNA kits that everyone is thirsting over. Particularly within the last couple years I have noticed a perpetual bombardment of advertising for 23andMe,, and the other DNA snatching kits. They have been made trendy just like the Amazon Alexa and everyone needs one to be up-to-date on the latest trend.

    • Yeah, Samual Adams was before the fifties if I remember correctly. JimBob who still likes the post but just has to be an ass every now and then. Why? Who knows.

  5. James I’m glad you also heard/read about this Oregon horror story.
    When I heard it a few days ago I thought about you immediately and was going to write a comment here about it, but you beat me to the punch!

    Along the same line…
    Am I the only one in the universe who has been receiving Privacy Policy e-mail notices almost daily?

    It seems every ‘Tom Dick and Harry’ company (not just the obvious giants) are trying to cover their asses by sending them out?

    They go something like this:

    “You may be aware that on 25 May 2018, new laws were introduced in Europe known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
    As a result, we have recently reviewed and updated our Privacy Policy in relation to how we collect and handle the personal information of our users, customers and registered contacts…”

    and then the legalese starts to kick in in full force.

    I can’t be the only one can I?

  6. This article shows at least 2 instances where David Hogg committed fraud. In one instance he admitted was at home and had to ride down to the school on his bicycle to get video of the event.

    In the second it’s shown that he recorded the video at 9:32am when the shooting happened at about 2pm. I don’t know how legit this site is, but the article points out some interesting and provable fraud that Hogg has committed.

    In these two you can see that there were more shots fired even after Cruz started blending in with other students to leave the building. This would have been the point at which, had he been the shooter, he would have already ditched the gun, so he couldn’t have fired anymore shots at this point. This basically proves that he was not the shooter since we all know there was only 1 shooter. No one can challenge that there was only 1 shooter since that’s the official narrative.

    “Is Nikolas Cruz innocent?”

    “Senior From Parkland, Florida High School Claims She Was With Nikolas Cruz During Tragic Shooting”

    In this video Cruz is called the nicest person.

    “‘He was probably one of the nicest people I’ve ever met in my life’”

  7. I don’t have one and don’t personally know anyone dumb enough to have one, but apparently such people do exist.
    We don’t even allow smartphones in our house unless they’re placed in our Faraday tin or the battery is removed (aside from my phone which has a switch for disabling its transmission capability so I can still use offline apps).

  8. Convenience? I think the ones falling for this crap are just getting more lazy and the sellers of this technology know us well. Nothing smart in my house including me.

  9. I always felt Huxley was warning us. Though he was convinced that over-population was a problem. I only view it as a problem if it’s all stupid people, so I guess it would be a problem with me as well since they breed so much faster! JimBob who thinks it would have been cool to trip with Huxley and Hunter S. Thompson, but not in Las Vegas. Too many bats.

    • But I still believe he was warning us. He was just stuck on a mathematical model that was pretty ignorant in my opinion. Populations do not just go up. They find their threshold. As long as their is an abundance of food, there will be an increase in population. JimBob who don’t do no crazy math stuff.

  10. I haven’t invested too much time into this issue, but that explanation from Amazon, as pathetic as it sounds, could be true. It all depends on the speech recognition algorithms used and possible bugs in software. I don’t see much point in sending voice recordings to random people, but it does show how utterly useless this technology can be.

    Of course, everything else about home spying holds water, it’s as watertight as a submarine. I’m sure this will spread like a wildfire, soon enough these devices will be probably merged with the TV as the centerpiece of any respectable home.

  11. normalizing the phenomenon.

    Normalizing indeed!

    So I’m trying to watch a YouTube video as I do from time to time (as there is no competitor that I’m aware of yet that has amassed the sheer volume of videos they have) when one of their annoying ads pops up before they allow me to view the video.

    I remember the days long ago when I was forced to watch ads on TV.
    That was before I pulled the plug on TV-watching.

    So now they are adding this annoying phenomenon to the internet. 🙁

    Anyway, what is the ad this time?

    Pops is sitting on the couch with his two teenage children watching TV and mom is peering at them from behind.

    Trying to watch TV that is. You see his children have different tastes than he has. So as they debate what they should all watch together on TV the children lose patience and start to play with their smart devices (phone, tablet).

    Pops decides to take charge and place an order with Alexa.
    He issues several commands to her in his own smug way.

    Mom chimes in shortly after with her series of Alexa commands…

    Did someone say ‘normalization’?

  12. Don’t be an idiot? Get rid of Alexa?

    On the contrary, some very clever people have decided that shoving Alexa down our impressionable youth’s throats is the smart thing to do!

    What could possibly go wrong with installing Alexa in every student residence hall room and student apartment on campus at Saint Louis University (2,300+ Echo Dot smart devices)?

    • I bet the college recruiters like that.

      I have to laugh at this statement:
      “Every minute we can save our students from having to search for the information they need online is another minute that they can spend focused on what matters most: their education.”

      Yeah right, like more time for trips to the beer barn or hanging out.

      My granddaughter, who now is in her Senior year at college, goes on all kinds of excursions and off-campus party type fun.
      While she does fine with academics, her focus is her boyfriend and friends and sports and whims. But I can’t be too critical…at her age I was worse.
