While this seems to be a pretty cool idea, and if it works, will cut delivery time by hours…
I still have my doubts that it’s going to work. Follow the drone, and you can have a free prize! Or try out that new BB gun! Or how about a rock attack? Or a bird attack? What happens if it gets destroyed on your property? Will you be liable to replace it? What if your dog attacks it?
And how many jobs will be lost if this catches on? Will UPS and the post office get in on it?
I know. I know. Jeff is a fun guy, and life goes on…so enjoy the commercial…and wonder…what happens if it get hit by lighting?
Or…in another world…what if it gets hacked into and taken over by visiting Syrians?
(I had to spoil it didn’t I?)
Everyone was talking today about how Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin wrote a scathing remark about America in an opinion piece.. The old cold war tensions are starting to blow up again, thanks to BO…and you might think this is the first time Russia has embarrassed the United States, but it’s happened before. Before Putin, there was Nikita Khrushchev.
According to Brian Thomsen in the book: Lies and Propaganda Thought History, America has stepped in deep doo-doo before. We have a habit of losing our spy planes:
In 1960 the cold war was heating up and an effort to defuse the tensions there was a summit meeting for May 16, bringing together the four heads of state of the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union. Unfortunately on May 1, a U.S. Lockheed U-2 plane disappeared over the sovereign territory of the Soviet Union. Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev declared that a “spy plane’ had been shot down, whereupon the United States issued a statement reaffirming the claim that the plane was a ‘weather research aircraft” and the pilot had difficulty with his oxygen equipment during a mission over Turkey” The administration stated, “There was absolutely no deliberate attempt to violate Soviet airspace and never has been.”
The U.S. was lying.
The U-2 pilot, Francis Gary Powers had left Peshwar, Pakistan, intending to fly over the Soviet Union and land at Bodo, Norway with the intention to photograph Soviet intercontinental ballistic missiles development sites in and around Sverdlovsk and Plesetsk….but he was shot down by a 14 SA-2Guideline surface-to-air missile which brought the plane down. Powers was suppose to destroy the plane and/or himself, but he was captured after he abandoned the aircraft by parachute. The Soviets got the film, and found 7,500 rubles on him.
Powers was put on trial for espionage, pleaded guilty (to avoid being executed) and was convicted on August 19. After serving three years hard labor he was exchanged for Soviet spy master Rudolf Abel in 1962. The Paris summit was called off, and Eisenhower, Charles De Gaulle, Harold Macmillan, and Khrushchev. didn’t meet and things got worse.
As usual to American politics, a cloak of deniability was quickly fashion for the president to protect him from scandal….of course. Later on, when asked how high he was flying on May 1, 1960, he often replied, “evidently not high enough.” Many of you do not remember, but Obama lost a valuable spy plane to Iran in 2011. No, there wasn’t a pilot, but gee…nothing like handing over our best technology. Nobody Really remembers that now do they? That was an even bigger blooper than the U-2 taking pictures.
Yes, Nobody Remembers so I just thought I’d bring it up. Oh yes, George W. Bush lost a plane in China…but…he at least tried to get it back.
While everyone is fretting about masks on clowns, and Oprah Winfrey’s delicate ego, Nobody Asks: HEY…What happened with North Korea? Did Kim Jong-un find another hobby? Where IS the little cheeky chipmunk? Wasn’t he going to nuke the United States not too long ago?
Gee…Obama acted as if he was a flea making noise, and he treats Putin the same way. I don’t know about you, but ever since Einstein wrote that letter to FDR saying something like, “Yes, this could destroy the whole world.” I think our President should quit talking about the “middle class,” which as everybody knows, is somewhere in the Magic Kingdom stuck on the Dumbo ride—- and start taking his job seriously…you know— the part where he promises to ‘protect and defend’ us? Did he miss that part?
I’m aging myself here, but I remember the Cuban Missile Crisis. I was only a kid, but I do remember asking my dad why he was digging a big hole in our back yard in Naples, Florida, one Sunday afternoon in broad daylight.
As I remember, he didn’t sugarcoat it:
“We might get hit by a bomb in a few days, and we’ll be safe in this hole.” he said.
“Will that bomb kill us?”
“Yes. But, I think we’ll be safe in the hole. Go get some canned beans from mom. “
That was the ‘greatest generation.” My dad had seen what war does, (He had been a Seabee in the Pacific) and they didn’t believe hiding the truth from their kids. Eisenhower was a great man according to my parents, and this new John Kennedy kid, well…he was just a pretty face as far as they were concerned, and didn’t know what the heck he was doing. They didn’t really think he would keep us from being attacked. They had absolutely no confidence in him, whatsoever.
And here I am, too many years later, and I find myself having the same mistrust on THIS President, whom to me…also got elected on his pretty face, but unfortunately for us, is ten-fold more clueless than JFK. JFK, you could very well say, was a patriot and loved this country: Obama…does not.
America is just as vulnerable now from nuclear attack as it has ever been..and with each new President many of us ask ourselves, “Will THIS one be the one who will refuse to let go of power?”
After all, all any of them is a good crisis as an excuse–to hang on.
Here’s a few facts from Dinesh D’Souza’s excellent book: Obama’s America, about Obama’s destructive disarmament of our country, and I include some remarks underneath:
Dinesh: In 2009 when Obama took office, the US had approximately 5,000 nuclear warheads in its arsenal. Obama resolutely set about slashing that number. In 2011, Obama negotiated an arms reduction treaty with Russia, the so called START treaty, in which both countries agreed to reduce their warhead count to 1,5550. America and Russian also limited their launchers to 700. In convincing the US Senate to support the treaty, Obama promises to modernize America’s existing nuclear assets a promise he subsequently abandoned.
Nobody: Recently it was reported that our nuclear facilities were ‘dangerously” vulnerable to attack–due to failing recent mock security tests—- and leaving many places like the Bay Area and Denver vulnerable to a detonation that would “dwarf” the impacts of Chernobyl. If we are attacked–Obama will be playing cards with Reggie Love on Air Force One.
Dinesh: Some of the provision of the treaty were downright odd: the limit on 700 launchers imposed not restrictions o Russia, since Russian already had fewer than 700 launchers. Once START was ratified and became law. He has asked the Pentagon to study reducing America’s nuclear deterrent by up to 80 percent, which would bring us down to around 300 strategic warheads. All of this is occurring at a time when other nuclear armed nations like China are expanding and modernizing their arsenals. Never before in history has a global superpower disarmed itself so rapidly and so thoroughly.
Nobody: Typical of Obama. While he hurts his own country at home, he is now helping Saudi Arabia develop nuclear energy. Much as Clinton helped North Korea developed their nuclear energy and we know how that turned out. Democrats just LOVE to help other countries come up to par in a nuclear world…and why is that again?
Dinesh: America can strike back, but China and Russia have an additional 150 warheads each with which they can level every major American city. The point is that America is not deterred from striking back, because it fears a completely devastation second strike that would basically end America as we know it. These are war games that the Pentagon has played since the dawn of the nuclear age.
Nobody: Oh…peachy. Can we put that reset button on Obama’s head?
Dinesh ;Early in this presidency Obama cut back on missile defense systems in Alaska and California. Obama canceled an anti missile system planned for Poland as well as a missile detection radar system planed for the Czech Republic.
Nobody: I bet Polish people can wear Obama masks!
Dinesh: We can no longer fight two wars on two different shores. In 2009, Obama ordered $330 billion in defense cuts. The next year he convinced Defense Secretary Robert Gates to pare an additional $100 billion. In 2011 Obama chopped an additional $487 billion from the Pentagon, thus bringing his total cuts to nearly a trillion dollars.
Nobody: But he has increased drones, and you’d better not touch his daughters.
Dinesh: While the defense department is being cut to the bone, other programs like health care and green technologies are bloated with money. Obama shows no evident interest in reducing overall spending only in reducing military spending.
Nobody: I don’t think Obama has been to Bora Bora yet.
Dinesh: Obama’s hope, is that fear will keep America humble. Call it humility through vulnerability. And in this way Obama hopes that America will stop acting like the evil empires.
And that’s the point of his book: Obama believes that America HAS been the evil empire…and the reason that he admires the Muslim Brotherhood, says Dinesh, is not because he is a Muslim himself, but because he sees them as freedom fighters against the big, bad, and mean America. He disarms us…invites us to be attack. And yet…Congress does nothing.
I don’t know what to think: But it seems clear to me this country has never been more vulnerable to attack then we are with Obama. No NSA agent is going to find out who sent the nuke by monitoring Verizon Wireless. Telephones are a poor substitute for a strong military.
One thing I do know….If there was another nuclear crisis–unlike JFK, who got on TV and warned us all—-Obama would be hiding somewhere over the rainbow, playing golf in the Bahamas, and we’d be the LAST ones to know….exactly what happened.
But…just in case you don’t have a dad like I did…somebody ESLE has made lots of TV series teaching us all about how to survive a nuclear attack, or just about anything. Aren’t they sweet?
You gotta love America. :)
Senator Ted Cruz is great in this exchange with Eric Holder. Eric Holder has admitted that President Obama has the right to use drones on American Citizens in the United States, but here, he is trying to act as if “Oh…we wouldn’t hit anyone sitting in a CAFE..”.(We’d wait until he got in his car..or went to the bathroom…or jumped into a pool..)
This is the kind of questioning that all the republicans should be doing.
Watch, and admire.
Senator Ted Cruz makes us all proud, and he wins the Nobody’s Fool prize for the week.
Now, let’s get him to start talkinga about impeachment proceedings….
When America dropped the bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the argument for whether that was a humane thing to do, is still being debated. Many people said that we should have continue the war and sooner or later we could have overtaken Japan as we did Germany, rather than killing all those innocent lives.
But..what many people don’t know, is that the Japanese had developed a nonmetallic land mine that could not be detected by any known means. They planted these mines in random patterns across the beaches of Japan and along all possible invasion routes. Estimates of deaths from those land mines alone ran into the hundreds of thousands. They tried in vain to find a way to destroy them. Dropping bombs from airplanes in Europe failed.
According to Richard Anderson, a renown staticist who was working on the problem with the Defense Department at the time—
One of the reasons why the United States dropped the atomic bomb on Japan was that all their experiments and calculations showed that it was impossible to destroy these mines by any other means.
So…if history repeats itself…we may all wonder about Iran: Will we ever see another nuclear weapon used in our lifetime?
And is the reason why our Congress approves such an unconstitutional measure of using drones on our home soil—is because they know something we don’t? Are there terrorists in the United States already with nuclear material? Some experts say it’s entirely possible.
Ahmadinejad has threatened to hit the ‘heart’ of America with some kind of devastation weapon. North Korea…is threatening New York. Obama says nothing.
Today we find out that when Obama was told about the attack happening in Benghazi, he told Leon Panetta to do whatever they felt necessary, and then Obama took off at 5 o’clock and nobody spoke to him again, even though the attack went on for hours… which means:.
1) He’s the most incompetent President ever in the history of the United States and just went off to have his big dinner and watch basketball…or
2) He ordered the stand-down in Benghazi and sacrificed those men because he didn’t want it to get out that the ambassador was helping supply Al-Qaeda with arms and weapons before his elections, and everything that happened following that was a cover-up.
3) Both of the above.
Nobody finds it less than funny that after all these years, our government couldn’t have come out and just admitted that the Japanese had land mines that so well protected their island, we couldn’t defeat them from the ground. It would have made a lot more sense. Was not revealing this fact a way to make us look big, and invincible?
“What we pretend to be defending as the “truth” is really our own self-esteem.” Thomas Merton “No Man Is An Island:
So..what is the truth? Obama lies. Panetta lies. Hillary lies. Who do we believe? Dick Cheney, the most hated man in America for years, said that his worst nightmare was to wake up to a nuclear attack on an American City.
Nobody Thinks….Hell, I’m not sure what I think, but I do know one thing…I’d rather be drinking Rum & Coke on the beach in Hawaii than thinking about any of this…care to join me?
This week, the good Judge makes the best case for the obscenity of an American President giving himself the power to kill anyone he perceives to be a threat to the United States. This is against the Constitution, and Obama should be impeached for it.
Add that to the news that Janet Napolitano is arming the government to the hilt, while trying to disarm Americans, you’d have to be a total fool not to be alarmed.
The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the course of the last 10 months alone, figures which have stoked concerns that the federal agency is preparing for civil unrest.
A study funded by the Department of Homeland Security that was leaked last year characterizes Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists. While Americans are being browbeaten with rhetoric about the necessity to give up semi-automatic firearms in the name of preventing school shootings, the federal government is arming itself to the teeth with both ammunition and guns. Last September, the DHS purchased no less than 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, labeling them “Personal Defense Weapons.”
The Judge is one of the few really alarmed at this: You have to ask yourself why Congress funded ANY of this, and you have to be a fool to think that Obama will not use bullets or drones on the American people right here on our very own soil.
After all, this is the man who wanted Death Panels for our older citizens, (And got them) and let the men in Benghazi die. Nobody Thinks…he’s gone meglo.
When it comes to punishing ‘opinion’ makers this week, we have two contenders: Chuck Hagel VS Donald Trump.
First: Chuck. Evidently ‘Chuck’ has been following Obama around on various trips overseas for years…either hoping he’d be nominated for the job of Secretary of Defense, or training for it. Obama seems to love him, no doubt because he has the same philosophy about the Middle East as Obama does…everything Muslim is good. Everything Jewish…is not.
But many in the G.O.P. are not happy with Hagel’s past ‘opinions’, especially those opinions he has on Israel.—
Hagel once referred to the “Jewish lobby” and it’s supposed efforts to “intimidate” members of Congress, and he has openly distanced himself from Israel, reportedly asserting that he was not an Israeli Senator.
Right. So…once again…the G.O.P has put out a warning: Behave, or we won’t confirm you.
Lindsey Graham, a Republican Senator for South Carolina, has said Mr Hagel “would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense towards the state of Israel in our nation’s history.”
But when you got Henry Kissinger, the man who worked with ALL the Republican Presidents, stating that Israel will be gone in ten years…you have to wonder if Chuck Hagel isn’t just another Chris Christie—-and where does this all lead?
Second: And then there’s Donald.
Now, Trump might want to make sure he keeps on the “buzz” side of the equation, with Comcast‘s (CMCSA) NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt saying the network will take action if he “becomes somehow hurtful and says or does things that cross a line,” according to a report in Deadline.com. Accordingly, Trump has “engaged in sexist behavior” and “perpetuated the racially charged birther conspiracy.” The same campaign, from the liberal group MoveOn.org, last month hired a mobile billboard reading “Dump Trump” to circle Macy’s corporate headquarters.
So? Who is going to be censored more in the press whenever they state their opinion?
Nobody Thinks that Donald will be censored more, because he attacked the main man himself…Obama, AND because he could still run for President in 2016. The press hate him. You will see an onslaught of bad press coming up in the next few years. I’m sure Trump tied a dog to his limo at some point in his life…we just don’t know about it yet.
Besides, Hagel seems lame compared to the new CIA appointee Brennan, who once referred referred to Jerusalem as “Al Quds,” the Arabic name for the city, and he announced that the government would not use the terms “Islamists” and “Jihadists.”That little nit bit alone makes us all soooo much safer, don’t you think?
But…Mr. Brennen sure does a fine job of killing them Muslims with drones. So, I think Brennen is going to attract more fire…than Hagel. This will all die down in a few days, unless of course they want to use his confirmation as a big show…to distract us from the economy.
They do love to all blow hot air.
While we will be talking about Hagel for weeks, Trump will be somewhere doing what he always does: Making money.
So, Donald Trump wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for today simply because I like his opinions!
And by the way…Mr. Greenblatt also said: “We talked him out of running for president, wasn’t that good enough?”
Anybody want to hear what I have to say about 2012? No?
Nobody Thinks this year was mutilated, as sure as a Kentucky Fried Chicken….but the main thing we are going to remember is…..is the rush of all of us stocking up on guns at the end of the year because, for the first time in history, SOMEHOW, a man who has single-handily changed America’s greatness to fast becoming a third world country, got reelected.
Yes, the election was a fraud….the race might have been close, but we’ll never know, because for the first time in America’s history, we have Hugo Chavez as President. He just has a much more expensive bombardier jacket, better teeth, and a bigger plane.
The year WAS– nothing but politics. Right down to the last day in November we were unmercifully bombarded with the fact that Mitt Romney kills dogs and people, and hides his money in the Cayman Islands. Mitt Romney somehow could not muster up the courage to call Obama what he really is: A crack head taking us all to communism on a fast bus to El Salvador.
And you know what? I CAN call the President a crack head. Since Obama became ‘President’ my neighborhood is full of them. If he can play golf with pimps, I can call him a crack head, knowing perhaps all too well that I’d better say it now…because it won’t be long before I can’t say such things.
The Republicans ran such a weak campaign, it was as if they hadn’t noticed that condoms are being handed out along with joints in our high schools, and the President lets his secret service have prostitutes at their beck and call. Mitt failed to mention that Obama, not only unfairly took the credit for killing bin Laden, but let 4 men die in Benghazi—and….not to mention, how he loves to sell guns to our enemies. And it’s not just south of the border that got Obama Guns…He’s arming half the Middle East.
When push came to shove, the Republicans were lost. They whisked Paul Ryan out..and then stupidly hid him.
They didn’t stand a chance. So now we’re stuck with a Putin understudy.
In the annals of history, Obama will look even more incredibly malevolent. What President could pull off making you and I pay for everyone else’s abortion? What President could celebrate closing our space station? Or our Military? What President could tell you that you won’t get that heart surgery after a certain age?
Obama can…YES HE CAN. And he can triple the deficit, destory our top credit rating, close down Gibson Guitars, and Hostess, and NASA , and Lucas, and even Solyndra, and thousands of strip malls all across the country, all the while offering amnesty, and drones, and setting the whole Middle East on the path to fanatical Muslim Brotherhood fairyland.
This from a man who hung out in the gay bars of Chicago.
But we had other news: It wasn’t only our country where the leaders seemed insane. Europe is starting to look like a travelogue for anarchy. Kum Jong Un thinks he is Dr. Strangelove, and the British Royals love to go naked. Prince Harry was naked in Las Vegas and Kate the new pregnant bride was naked everywhere else. I don’t know about you, but this Nobody Thinks she married the wrong Prince.
And yet, The Royals managed to have the biggest year yet, celebrating the Queen’s 60th, and naming Big Ben, Big Queen, and throwing the biggest most expensive Olympic ever seen in the Isles of Wright. Where socialized medicine will be the New British export. It was a great “green” display and a downright almost Benny Hill advertisement for the glories of socialism, the biggest propaganda display on that subject that we’ve ever seen, complete with Paul McCartney’s cracking voice at the end singing…”Live and Let Dieeeeeeeeeeeee”
And the elites get to choose, who lives and who dies in the future. But…what else is new?
Michael Phelps will no doubt lose all his gold metals someday to Lance Armstrong. Hockey…might never come back. And baseball…may give way to soccer by 2022, the year the earth might finally come to an end, because although the elites think that they might all just exist the planet, that doesn’t there’ll be any astronauts left to take them.
As far as disasters go, we had the worst drought in two -thirds of the United States. And more fires. My grass got green for one whole week…and then we had…Hurricane Sandy. Sandy hit the Jersey Shore, and Jersey Christie, stuck his finger into the union wind, and ran to the President’s side. FEMA was collecting discarded 16oz soda cups and forgetting to drop off food to the weary. By that time we were all so disgusted with politics, in our fatique we ignored how FAST they tallied the Presidential voting results, and crowned him King.
Which he is. Obama can now arrest any one of us, hold us without trial, and not even TELL anybody where we are or why…
And as if the devil himself was working for Obama–some kid went nuts and killed innocents babes at a school. Oh…and his mother was a Teapartier.
“She was from gun culture. Live free or die. That was truly her upbringing,”
You couldn’t WRITE a better power script for Obama…so next year we WILL have gun control..and once again the Supreme Court will demolish the Constitution.
They’re getting pretty good at it.
We lost some good people in 2012: Neil Armstrong, and Ray Bradbury…who befittingly died with our space program. Dick Clark— although I’m surprised they don’t stuff his body and just let it ride down the ball at midnight, in fact, I think Dick would be honored. Hell, his hair would be honored!
Whitney Houston will no longer have to give up cocaine: Opie can now claim Andy Griffith was a secret tea partier and gay: Donna Summer drag queens will get paid double on Sunday: I can finally name my next dog Fang, Phyllis Diller won’t care: and Helen Gurly Brown can get together somewhere with Nora Ephran (The lady who put the orgasim in When Harry Met Sally) and educate Joe Paterno on the finer points of child molestation.
And God Bless Mike Wallace, who had the wisdom to tell everybody that he suffered from depressions, making the rest of us feel better.
And then there was the saddest news of all. We had more soldiers commit suicide…than we lost in the war.
Mike Wallace didn’t see that one coming.
That’s another first. They served to help build a country, where they are hated, and they come home to a country, where they WILL be disarmed, and ignored, and if you think Obama has nothing to do with our finest men and women committing suicide, think again.
Yes, we are Kentucky Fried…unless…we arm ourselves with the truth.
And that’s why I’m posting this link. Please…take a look. (Movie…worth it…check it out…go ahead..good stuff…)
It’s all you need to know about how this all happened.
It’s long…I know….almost an hour. But…Honey Boo Boo…believe me, can wait.
2013 will be the time the last remaining Americans stand up and say..
THIS…is our finest hour.
At that, I am almost sure…..
Nobody Gets Email
I can’t think of a more fun way to start off a Saturday then with the email I just got! It’s from my very good friend in Australia, amfortas, and he has written up a very educational blog about drones. It has everything you always wanted to know about drones, and flying machines.
I’ve included a video from the blog that I especially like, because you know me…I saw a drone over a tea party rally I was at in 2007, and I’ve hated them ever since.
Since amfortas wrote the article, I’m sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.
