The Black Hornet Is Here To Help.

After Rand Paul’s filibuster this last week, many people are paying a bit more attention to the idea that our government may not always be using their cool toys for our own good. RT’s Abby Martin reported on mini drones and the possible ways in which they could be used against the public.

One has to wonder if these little dandies might slip through the cracks of public awareness due to their size. Will Rand Paul get up again and passionately rail against the use of these cute lil’ fellas? Presently in military use abroad, it seems like only a matter of time before these mini-drones hit the ghettos and suburbs of America to quietly keep an eye on the malcontents. If you can imagine it, it’s probably going to be done at some point. Easy as ‘playing an Xbox’; mini drones offer a new way for those in power to keep an eye on you…through your second floor bedroom window. Nice undies!

    I can imagine these things fuel psychosis for paranoid schizophrenics and tweakers.

    Here’s a story for you. A friend of a friend’s older brother who I moved in with was convinced there was drones keeping tabs on him.He would point to the night sky and say “those moving lights are drones”.
    One day I hopped in his truck to ride along so that “we”, as in he because I was just riding along for the show, could go to another county to evade jurisdiction.

    Even though I knew that was Hollywood bullshit, I chose not to tell him, because he was behind the wheel and that bit of info could have impacted things. Besides I was enjoying the night air. Did I mention he was a tweaker. I moved out as fast as possible. This was roughly 10 years ago.

      Haha! That is a good story. I wish this new tech were only the bane of tweakers and not everyday people.

        Agreed. In an article I read about being detained, the prisoners said the most troublesome part was the feeling of always being watched. The psychological effect of being watched at all times can be unhinging.

      I can imagine psychosis fuels these drones.

      Whilst you may be correct regarding your friend of a friend’s older brother’s mental state. I can’t comment on that.
      You are overlooking one simple fact though.
      The military technology that is made public today is the military technology of yesterday. How long have children been playing with toys like this? Do you honestly believe that children get first dibs on the new toys before the MOD?
      So how much longer has this technology actually been in play?
      You don’t have to be convinced. You don’t have to answer.
      Go back to sleep.

    Beautiful women everywhere, be afraid, be very afraid. You know the best part about weed being legal in Seattle? Now I’m like, ummm, well, yeah, you got nothing on me. I actually went to a show last week and they searched my bag. While they were doing it, I started to panic. Fuck, my weed’s in there. As the door guy was pulling it out I suddenly remembered, shit, that doesn’t matter anymore. Sure enough, no problem at all. Guy asked if I could spare a nug.

      What didja tell him?

      • Thad McKraken

        Hey wanted to me to give him some before I left, because he couldn’t smoke it or take it while he was at work. I left totally dodging him. If he was down to smoke right then, I would have just went outside and fired it up.

          Oh, i know. It’s rude to ask for some to take home when you don’t know someone. But OK to ask for a toke when someone’s in the process. Weediquette….people gotta learn it.

    Better to be watched than to be ignored. If I had paparazzi tailing me or drones flying overhead, I’d start to get shameless and diabolical. When you’re ignored, however, it’s worse. Ask Cassandra.

    the drone thing has been ramping up for about a year now in the main-line media
    as has the supper snooping NSA stuff
    which is designed to convince anyone who’ll listen
