New mosquito sized drone available at your local Radio Shack. This would have been handy in Benghazi.

Wink Re: Vote em out!

Not to worry, IF the government is developing micro-sized drones they are intended for defensive use against our enemies and would never be used against our own citizens!

btw, anyone remember the robotic spiders in the 1984 film Runaway (with Tom Selleck and Gene Simmons)?

Re: Vote em out!

It's always a give and take thing always. One thing I was never a fan of is giving some state, federal or any employees, pension at their last years rate and workers putting 80 hrs a week during their last year to lock that salary for life, oh and don't forget medical benefits for life also free of charge. And our water, heat utilities bill going up every year to pay those employees high salaries and increases. How long did they think they were gonna get away with that? Now we have many bankrupted cities in California and other states too but admit California was the worst pushing the limits.

Also heard that ...
Wow, you guys really do believe whatever you hear. Let's see, the National Seniors Council...sounds reasonable. Of course, anyone with typo's in their Mission Statement is surely one to trust...Where do I sign up and send my money?!!?

Our Mission

The National Seniors Council's goal is to serve the needs of a new generation of retireers in the new political reality of Washington, DC. We are a true grassroots, national organization that is committed to protecting the rights and everything that America's senior citizens have earned from the politicians in Washington, D.C.

If the AARP doesn't offer what you really need in retirement, then the National Seniors Council is for you.

Cruises? Rental Cars? Mutual Funds? Those things are nice but what today's seniors really need is an organization whose one and only purpose is to protect all they have earned.

And that organization is the National Seniors Council. Please join us!"


Then there's this gem of patriotism....

National Director's Report November 2012

"While many seniors are no doubt angry about the results of this year's Presidential election and are scared for the future, I just want to reassure you that the National Seniors Council will keep fighting for you.

In the coming months and years there will be huge battles over ObamaCare, Social Security, and even Obama's dream of establishing a new "national retirement system." Rest assured that we will be in the thick of things fighting like crazy.

Remember, the big-government liberals win ONLY if America's seniors give up.

Please don't give up. If we all stand together we'll get through this and preserve everything that we've earned!"

Re: Vote em out!

Interesting article...I'm sure that soon we won't be allowed to mention this name, either. It might be easier to follow a list of Republicans that CAN be named in these discussions. I especially appreciated these words "Now, after a landslide loss..."

http://news.yahoo.com/why-republican...064500727.html

Losing is never a great way to increase your popularity. But to an unusually vocal degree, Republicans are going out of their way to show Romney the door.

A week and a half ago, Mitt Romney was the king of the Republican Party, drawing big, genuinely enthusiastic crowds to his presidential rallies and basking in glowing press from the conservative media. Now, after a landslide loss and post-election comments blaming his crushing defeat on "gifts" President Obama had doled out to young and minority voters, "Republicans are essentially coming together in a collective 'go away, Mitt,'" say Benjy Sarlin and Evan McMorris-Santoro at Talking Points Memo. "For conservatives and Republicans trying to make the GOP friendlier to those groups, Romney's comments have not been well-received. To say the least."

Romney is still in shock over his loss, and wants to keep on "rehashing why he didn't win" — blaming the voters, not his campaign — while Republicans are clearly trying to "move on as quickly as possible from an election that badly exposed their weaknesses," says Chris Cillizza at The Washington Post. And since Romney embodies just about everything his party is trying to ditch — namely, "the stereotype that it is of, by, and for white, affluent men " — you can't blame the GOP for telling its failed nominee: "Thanks for playing. Now go away." The problem for Republicans is that "Romney has no motivation to toe the party line now," and no incentive to shut up.

But it doesn't really matter what Romney says now, says Michael Tomasky at The Daily Beast. His losing campaign already irreparably — and unforgivably — damaged one of the GOP's sacred cows: Trickle-down economics. Yes, Romney "killed Reaganomics." Voters had a stark choice between Obama's pledge to raise taxes on the rich while keeping middle-class taxes the same and Romney's central promise to cut everyone's taxes by a fat 20 percent.

There was a time when a promise of a 20-percent tax cut would have ended the whole conversation in Romney's favor. But all it accomplished this time was to raise questions — legitimate and never answered — about how he was going to pay for it. Romney had nothing to say to the middle class beyond cutting taxes and watching the magic happen. But voters have stopped believing in that magic. Some conservatives understand this. But it's literally three or four people right now.... The rest of the Republican Party is still in fantasy land.
Hey, let's give Romney some credit here, says Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo. He's already managed to do something that's eluded Obama for four years: "Uniting the country across party lines." Of course, what's uniting everyone's is the belief that "he's someone who should leave as soon as possible and not say anything publicly again." But even there, Romney's hardly the first losing candidate to be thrown down the memory hole by his own party. Michael Dukakis? Bob Dole, anyone? The part of this that's amusingly unique to Romney is that a candidate who "was never more than a tolerated transplant among professional conservatives" is being drummed off the national stage by the GOP "precisely because he's continuing to make the kind of makers-and-takers type statements you might hear on a particularly feral and untethered right-wing blog."

Prepare for your own retirement, AARP and National Seniors Council (never heard of it before) are a joke!!

Re: Vote em out!

Wise words attributed to an article in a Czech newspaper:
http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapb...rzeitungon.asp

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

Regardless of where or when they first appeared, these are indeed wise words and they point out one of the biggest problems that faces this nation in the years ahead. An informed electorate that cherishes our Constitution and history and values liberty and freedom over government handouts is critical to restoring this great nation. Without them the career politicians will surely continue to serve their deep pocket corporate & union contributors rather than the citizens they are sworn and paid to represent.
