Sort of like those things in 'Twister' but these actually fly a programed flight path.
It would be cool to "park" a few of these in the eye of the storm and track it that way.

Did you see that video of a drone coming within feet of a landing airliner?

Obama publicly and naively went after Fox News right after taking office. Remember?
He then banned Fox News from press conferences until the liberal media stood behind Fox.
This president has made it no mystery he rewards loyalty and despises criticism, dividing both parties by demonizing and diminishing republicans ever since he took office.
This is not the actions of a leader. They are character traits of a narcissist.
You must have forgotten the tea party - citizens who protested in peaceful dissent against big government - were put on the Homeland Security's list in 2009.
If you're still laughing, you're delerious.
I think those actions are more indicative of a bully.

More lies from Hate Talk Radio.
To listen to you people, insurance premiums were stagnant before the passing of the Affordable Healthcare Act.
Hate to bust your myth but the cost of family coverage doubled between 1999 and 2009 (by 131% actually) and it was Obama that took the initiative to who put new rules in place to require all insurers publically justify any increases of more than 10 percent and spend at least 80 cents of every dollar they collect in premiums on medical care or return the difference to consumers.
In 2011, premiums increased by 8.5 percent over the previous year. That's less than the increases seen under Bushy boy yet you people are demanding that premiums be stabilized under Obama.... even though prescription drug makers and "non-profit" Catholic hospitals continue to increase their fees. You people are a piece of work.
FACT: "In 2012, U.S. companies and their employees saw the lowest health care premium rate increases in six years, according to an analysis by consultancy Aon Hewitt. The average health care premium rate increase for large employers in 2012 was 4.9 percent, down from 8.5 percent in 2011 and 6.2 percent in 2010. In 2013, however, average health care premium increases are projected to jump up to 6.3 percent." Still FAR, FAR, FAR lower than the increases seen under the Bush administration.

The top grievance is anger at the U.S. government's policy of aiding and abetting Israeli crimes.

2006.....
The House approved a bill Thursday that would grant legal status to President Bush's warrantless wiretapping program with new restrictions. Republicans called it a test before the election of whether Democrats want to fight or coddle terrorists.
"The Democrats' irrational opposition to strong national security policies that help keep our nation secure should be of great concern to the American people," Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, said in a statement after the bill passed 232-191.
"To always have reasons why you just can't vote 'yes,' I think speaks volumes when it comes to which party is better able and more willing to take on the terrorists and defeat them," Boehner said.
Democrats shot back that the war on terrorism shouldn't be fought at the expense of civil and human rights. The bill approved by the House, they argued, gives the president too much power and leaves the law vulnerable to being overturned by a court.
"It is ceding the president's argument that Congress doesn't matter in this area," said Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md.
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Heather Wilson, R-N.M., that give legal status under certain conditions to Bush's warrantless wiretapping of calls and e-mails between people on U.S. soil making calls or sending e-mails and those in other countries.

So the democrats were opposed to this type of thing in 2006. What changed? Oh, a black man was elected president. You're a bunch of racists.

Lol. The president is loyal to the majority of citizens who elected him based on democratic ideals. If the people had wanted a republican president they would have elected one.
You have some nerve accusing Obama of "demonizing and diminishing republicans ever since he took office" when it is VERY WELL documented tht it was the republicans who started their anti-Obama campaign that night. Take your blinders off.
Didn't he tell republicans to take a seat in the back of the bus (or something to that effect)?

That's pretty diminishing.

Didn't he say republicans wanted to kill granny (or something to that effect)?

That's pretty demonizing.

How can anybody support this administration and Barack Milhous Obama at this point? Don't you understand that if the government can intimidate one group because of their political beliefs then the government can intimidate any group (that is depending on what banana dictatorship is put in place - which is what this administration is starting to resemble). The implication of persecution of any political group should outrage any good liberal.
