Git ‘er done in 24!

An internal Pentagon report made public on Wednesday revealed that the U.S. Department of Defense has been using unarmed drones to conduct surveillance missions over American soil since 2006.

The Pentagon inspector general report, entitled “Evaluation of DoD Use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) for Support to Civil Authorities,” obtained by USA Today through a Freedom of Information Act request, said that “less than 20” such missions occurred between 2006 and 2015, though they anticipate many more in the years to come.

“More than ten years of war in the combat zones of Iraq and Afghanistan have taught a generation of Airmen valuable lessons about the use of Remotely Piloted Airdfta (RPA) and other [Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR)] assets,” the analysis states.

“As the nation winds down these wars,” it continues, “and USAF RPA and ISR assets become available to support other combatant command (COCOM) or U.S. agencies, the appetite to use them in the domestic environment to collect airborne imagery continues to grow, as does Congressional and media interest in their employment.”

    When I was a kid I dreamed of owning a jetpack, but I can see how this would be better.

    Day 2 since release, feel like shit with pain, NORCO’s keep it at bay.

    This morning I saw the beast that is apparently causing my issues looking back at me, I’m considerably freaked out over that. The veil has been lifted, it made it’s presence known to me, now I have the challenge of getting rid of it as I believe it is responsible for creating my constant misery. It has three eyes with the two outside ones very angry looking.

    I know you all probably think I am delusional or crazy but I know what I saw.
    I have psychic abilities that none of you have known until now, I’ve had them as long as I can remember, not an ability to see the future except a few minutes ahead, Carol I fully expect you to be startled, I just don’t go around broadcasting it fearing the mocking from the idiots that would occur, sometimes it is more curse than gift, now is one of those times.

    I am uncomfortable posting this info but I need to get it out in the open. I have a fellow psychic that I have have contacted for help, I will keep you posted on the progress if any.

    Nuff said, let’s move on.

    Coffee in the corner, donuts on the side, dig in!

    Something spooky going on at Real Time

    Bill Maher: “Two weeks ago, I mentioned Anthony Scolia, and he died later that night

    And last week, I mentioned Nancy Reagan, and she died the next day.

    So this is a reminder, we all have to go sometime, and a quick story about Dick Cheney…”
