The Dutch police are to have an Unmanned Aerial Services (UAS) unit, Justice Minister Ivo Opstelten has said in a letter to parliament. According to the centre-left D66 opposition party, the Netherlands will be the first country with such a unit, and the privacy of citizens is at risk.

Last year, the police operated 81 flights over the Netherlands with drones, unmanned mini-planes equipped with day and night cameras. The present flights are only the start of the use of drones in the Netherlands, says Opstelten.“In the future, an increase in the number of flights with unmanned planes is expected."

A formal UAS unit is currently being set up. In preparation for this, some members of the police force are being trained and examined on the Basic Training Rotary Craft UAS pilot service course at the National Aerospace Laboratory (NLR) in Amsterdam, Opstelten writes.

D66 wants a separate act to regulate the deployment of drones in the Netherlands. MP Gerard Schouw said Friday on Radio 1 that the privacy of the citizen is at risk. The special police unit being set up specifically to steer the unmanned planes in the air is “a world first,” according to Schouw.

Opstelten says the law does not need to be amended for this, because existing regulations, for example in the area of privacy, would be sufficient. But according to Schouw, there are no rules in the Netherlands for the use of the pictures taken by the drones.

The D66 MP points out that the word drone does not appear anywhere in Dutch legislation. In the US, there are already states and cities with separate laws for the use of drones. Schouw wants to follow this example.

Activists from different groups marched to the US embassy in Pretoria on Friday protesting against President Barack Obama.

The large group marched along Francis Baard Street, singing and chanting anti-Obama slogans. One activist, on a truck mounted with a public address system, led the songs and slogans.

He shouted: "Free Palestine. Free Swaziland. Free Zimbabwe. Down Obama, down!"

The group initially gathered at the Caledonian Stadium before embarking on the march.

Some of the protesters' placards read: "Obama, stop supporting dictators in Africa. No oil here, move on.

"100 years of genocide in Iraq. War in 100 countries. Rogue State."

A young boy's poster read: "No you can't spy on me".

Many protesters wore orange overalls and black hoods. Others were dressed in Young Communist League red regalia.

The league's national secretary was with other officials in front of the protesters.

A large banner with Obama's face had the words: "Meet the world's top assassin". The banner also had a picture of Obama behind prison bars.

Why do you want an immigration bill?
The immigration problem isn't going away. There are just too many here with deep roots. The pathway to citizenship covers more than a 10 year timespan and the solution to securing the border is, I think, a good one.

Whether it's the most fair solution - allowing illegal immigrants to get preference over those who are still waiting their turn just to come here - is the objection most have as well as illegal immigrants taking the low-skilled jobs away from American citizens.

But, to me, it's better immigrants earn their citizenship and start contributing than remain under the radar.

Most Republicans do want some kind of bill. Others know it's political suicide to fight any attempt to solve the problem.

If border security every 1000 feet is enforced by this administration, it will probably appease most Americans who would otherwise be opposed to the pathway to citizenship solution.

It's a big problem and no one really knows how to solve it. Especially me.

Your thoughts?

You supported the wrong president with the wrong agenda to solve the health care problem - and the nation's problems. You and others will eventually have to come to accept that.

In fact, all Galt suggested was that women were being treated as second-class citizens because abortion clinics are not held to the same standards as other outpatient surgical facilities.

There is no such right, but that's another story.

FORMER United States President George Bush and his wife Laura are expected in Livingstone today for a private visit.
The former President left Texas yesterday and is expected to arrive at Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula International Airport Zambia at 07:00 hours.
Mr Bush’s visit is meant to support the Red and Pink Ribbon campaign, which aims at raising awareness on breast and cervical cancer.
According to a programme released by the Bush Institute, Mr Bush, together with Zambian officials and volunteers from the institute, will paint the Mosi-oa-Tunya Clinic.
The clinic will help in the detection and treatment of breast and cervical cancer.
Tomorrow, Mrs Bush will visit Songwe village in Livingstone.
First Lady Christine Kaseba is expected to join Mr and Mrs Bush for the official opening of the clinic on Monday.

Improve border security first and then discuss the issue of illegal aliens already here.

Hiring thousands of extra border guards does not necessarily improve security.

Mr Obama will enjoy using his background and roots when he is in Africa to unite with and communicate to Africans about the need for good leadership.
On many occasions, Obama has appealed to African governments to embrace good governance and focus on national development.
He has also tried had to show Africans that he is their grandson, and that he is different from other American leaders.
But many Africans have received this appeal with mixed feelings. African leaders have described American presidents as hypocrites. It is a well-known fact that American presidents only partner with countries where there are mutual benefits.
If Muammar Gaddafi was to be raised from the dead today, he would certainly tell the entire world how American presidents have been ‘chameleons’.
The Syrian government is also another example where America is funding rebels to tople the legitimate government.
But on the other hand Mr Obama is busy going around the world promoting peace and unity.
So, Africa could be better off not to lose sleep over Mr Obama’s visit. It is on record that US presidents have always used their international visits to mock developing and Islamic countries. All they should expect from Mr Obama are the usual speeches that were full of motivational talk and unfulfilled promises.
Africans should also understand that the US, with its allies, is ashamed that Africa, which was called the ‘dark continent’, has achieved tremendous development and has found new partners in trading.
Africans should also understand that America is different from China. The Chinese visit Africa to offer support in economic development while the Americans want to come to mock African leaders.
So, should Africa expect anything from Mr Obama’s visit? Your answer is as good as mine!

“Come Home America!”

Putin throws down Obama
18.06.2013
By Xavier Lerma
Not so fast Mr. Hope and Change. Haven't you heard? There's a new Sheriff in town in the Middle East. President Putin reminded Barry that he's in charge. He already reminded Netanyahu recently after Israel fired into Damascus in early May. Afterward, Bibi sang a different tune. Putin's talent as a Judo expert is always useful in these situations. When Obama was continually arming Syrian rebels; declaring no fly zones and moving his Marines into Jordan Putin took quick action. Obama sang a different tune as well and even said, "and finally we compared notes on President Putin's expertise in Judo and my declining skills in basketball". The following video is in English and Russian:
http://english.pravda.ru/russia/politics/18-0...
Oh,yeah, that must be why Putin didn't look like much of a 'strongman' at the G-8 Summit with the sour puss expression on his face after President Obama took him down a notch or too with one look and a few choice words of reprimand for not backing the Security Council the U.N., and 100 countries on recognizing the Syrian National Council over bloddy butcher-boy Assad.

If you want to talk about "political suicide", creating millions of additional Obamabots out of illegal aliens fits the bill.

You have clearly been brainwashed by the media, including your RINO friend Bill.

A typically air headed statement from the thread air head, Nobraina.

Why is it you offer stupid opinion when the facts are readily available?? Because you're what you've always been, Nobraina, a complete idiot.

CBO says the immigrants will add to Americas's prosperity, by reducing the budget deficit by $197 BILLION, ya freakin' Obamaphobic Teatard.

----------

How Would the Legislation Affect the Federal Budget from 2014 Through 2023?

CBO and JCT estimate that enacting S. 744 would generate changes in direct spending and revenues that would decrease federal budget deficits by $197 billion over the 2014–2023 period. CBO also estimates that implementing the legislation would result in net discretionary costs of $22 billion over the 2014–2023 period, assuming appropriation of the amounts authorized or otherwise needed to implement the legislation. Combining those figures would lead to a net savings of about $175 billion over the 2014–2023 period from enacting S. 744. However, the net impact of the bill on federal deficits would depend on future actions by lawmakers, who could choose to appropriate more or less than the amounts estimated by CBO. In addition, the total amount of discretionary funding is currently capped (through 2021) by the Budget Control Act of 2011; extra funding for the purposes of this legislation might lead to lower funding for other purposes.

----------

The 30 Billion for border security is a waste of money to get a few Reppugnant votes.. So much for fiscal responsibility from you nitwits.

I'm happy to see the House convince hispanics and asians that the Repugnant Party is a hateful group of old white idiots, dying off faster than they can be replaced. Hispanics don't have that problem.
