TIRED OF BEING PARANOID

Published January 23, 2019 by Nan Mykel

Because I had punched the “Text” button I suspected Word Press of refusing to let me post a photo of Trump.  I get phone calls from an unknown number on my landline and they say NANCY?  In a rather intimidating manner. Either I  one, hang up; two, say “Sorry she’s not here now”; three, roundup the energy to say “Who’s calling?”; once I truthfully said “Sorry, I’m still asleep.”  Sometimes they hang up when I say “Where are you calling from?”  The other day on the phone a woman talking too fast for me to process said “…..income tax….credit card….password….”  I said, “WHAT did you SAY?” and she hung up.

So now I’m struggling with a doozy I’d like your opinion or research or advice on.   I like and read AlterNet, but buried among the ads to the right of the screen after you open one of their stories is a very brief video clip that plays and replays without any obvious message.  For months it’s been playing without any identification of what’s happening.  A one point a circle flashes but you have to watch maybe several times to see it.  My paranoia suspects it’s a subliminal message “they” don’t want you to consciously see.  My non-paranoid self suggests it’s their way of counting something.  Would you visit and look and tell me what you think or know?  If it’s a subliminal message shouldn’t it be known?

I don’t believe I was paranoid prior to the current administration.  I kid you not.

  • Nan, I think the internet is full of subliminal messages. Recently there were many consecutive blogs discussing the colour pink – very different posts. Any site one visits probably has these. I think it’s supposed to be illegal but the various governments are probably doing it too. I know facebook does as a fact. Regarding the phone calls – you could probably get your phone company to block these calls; in fact there should be a feature on your phone that could do that. Write down the date and time you receive these calls so it can be traced. It sounds like spammers, wanting to get hold of your details. Never give anything over the phone. Visit your bank to make sure your account is safe.

    I visited Alternet.org but couldn’t see what you mean. My internet connection is so slow however whatever you are referring to couldn’t load. And no, I don’t think you are paranoid. Do what you can to protect yourself.
