I'm not the one blaming the high number people on food stamps on Obama when he came into office as the Bush recession was just getting going.
Just like Newt blaming Democratic Mayors for making people poor.
Niether of you have any sense or logic.
food stamp eligibility requirements have been loosened under Obama.

FAA warns shooting at drone could result in prosecution similar to shooting at manned airplane
Published July 20, 2013FoxNews.com

People who fire guns at drones are endangering the public and property and could be prosecuted or fined, the Federal Aviation Administration warned Friday.

The FAA released a statement in response to questions about an ordinance under consideration in the tiny farming community of Deer Trail, Colo., that would encourage hunters to shoot down drowns. The administration reminded the public that it regulates the nation's airspace, including the airspace over cities and towns.

"I want to take a stand against the coming surveillance society that seems to be rushing in on us," Phillip Steel, a resident in town who drafted the ordinance and submitted it for approval by the town board, told "Fox and Friends."

Officials in the town admit they have never seen a drone plane on the Eastern Plains, but they want to make a statement that they think using unmanned surveillance planes to spy on people in the United States is wrong. They say the ordinance is mostly symbolic. They also recognize it's against federal law to destroy federal property.

The FAA for its part said a drone "hit by gunfire could crash, causing damage to persons or property on the ground, or it could collide with other objects in the air. Shooting at an unmanned aircraft could result in criminal or civil liability, just as would firing at a manned airplane."

Under the proposed ordinance, Deer Trail would grant hunting permits to shoot drones. The permits would cost $25 each. The town would also encourage drone hunting by awarding $100 to anyone who presents a valid hunting license and identifiable pieces of a drone that has been shot down.

AIR FORCE DRONE CRASHES, CLOSES FLORIDA ROAD

Steel, 48, said in an interview that he has 28 signatures on a petition — roughly 10 percent of the town's registered voters. Under Colorado law, that requires local officials to formally consider the proposal at a meeting next month. Town officials would then have the option of adopting the ordinance or putting it on the ballot in an election this fall, he said.

The proposed ordinance is mostly a symbolic protest against small, civilian drones that are coming into use in the United States, Steel said. He acknowledged that it's unlikely there are any drones in use near Deer Trail.

The head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation acknowledged in June that his agency uses drones to conduct surveillance in the United States, but said they do so rarely, The Wall Street Journal reported . FBI director Robert Mueller said the agency uses them "in a very, very minimal way, very seldom."

Federal agencies have been using drones for years to monitor the northern and southern borders of the U.S., and those drones have occasionally been deployed to help domestic law-enforcement agencies like the FBI.

What you right wing morons don't get is that young people today are paying a much higher percentage of their income for health insurance than the last generation. My son and his wife each have a full time job and a part time job, common where they live. Its a struggle for young couples with a house payment, car payments and the expense of a child to make ends meet. Since government refuses to rein in skyrocketing medical costs (they don't want to offend wealthy medical industry donors) then the least they can do is help middle class and the poor afford it.
why don't you help your own slacker children instead of forcing others to pay for their irresponsible lifestyle???...

A Harley Biker is riding by the zoo in Washington, DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.
The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.
A reporter has watched the whole event.
The reporter addressing the Harley rider says,'Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I've seen a man do in my whole life.'
The Harley rider replies,'Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.'
The reporter says,'Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, you know, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page... So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?'
The biker replies, I'm a U.S. Marine and a Republican.
The journalist leaves.
The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:
U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH
...and THAT pretty much sums up the media's approach to the news these days...
Brilliant.

And sad.....

Wonder when we're all going to start saying out loud what we're all thinking? He's an imposter. His words and actions have announced it so many times, it's no wonder he thinks we're just too stupid to figure it out.
And, yet, all we do is complain and allow him to continue to unravel the fabric of this nation at his own discretion. At what point do we say he's not fit for the presidency and take back our power from the elite few? This is exactly how statism and socialism happens. Complacency and acceptance.
If Richard Nixon didn't get away with his lies, deceptions and cover ups affecting a small few, how in the world does this president get away with lies, deception and cover ups for personal gain that grossly and adversely affects the entire nation?
I really just don't get it. Black Republicans seem to be the only ones who do.

Shining is right, Dumbo.

It's obvious from your posts every day that there are several things you read you misinterpret&#8206;.

Yes, we know you can't comprehend.

That is likely one of the reasons you ended up being who you are. Let me help you with something. Your Messiah isn't able to help you, but I guess you feel better joining the hate and jealousy crowd.
