Killer Drones – What could possibly go wrong?

Wonderful news from the Daily Mail, Bill could see Connecticut police use drones armed with LETHAL weapons in a first for the US.

The first thing I said to myself when I woke up this morning was “wouldn’t it be nice for politicians to be able to kill anyone with the push of a button”? What a GREAT idea! No more pesky problems from those doubting Thomases who are sick of paying for corruption! No more question about campaign financing! No more static about H-1B abuse!

“The bill would ban the use of weaponized drones, but exempt police.”

Thank goodness! The last thing I want is the unwashed masses killing people with a drone! Only the most holy of holies, the political class, should have such powers of life and death at the push of a button!

If anyone raises a fuss, the politician can drone their ass!

“Officers also would have to receive training before being allowed to use drones with weapons.”

Safety first! I have to respect that.

Thank goodnes we will be able to say that we are joining countries like Iraq and India, who already use their own killer drones.

Taking my tongue out of my check now.

Here are some of the issues as I see them;

  • Maintaining absolute control and not having an outside interest take over the drone.
  • Absolute tracking as to who is responsible when the shot is fired. I don’t want the Chicago shuffle when it is time to find out just who authorized and who took the shot!
  • Lets say the police have drones. What is to stop me from obtaining a drone that looks vaguely similar, painting it to appear just like the police drone, and then popping a cap in someone’s ass?
  • Privacy? What is that? Some ancient custom that no longer exists?
  • Does anyone doubt that the federal government will want the ability to override local control, “in case of emergency”?

On the other side of the ledger, I can see many good possibilities. Every action can be and MUST be videoed for later review. Lets take an area where drugs are being sold. Use the drones to video each and every bad guy and arrest them at your convenience. Have a riot and need to CLEARLY video the bad guys? Send in the drones. You can also shoot the nastiest offenders and teargas the rest. Have a flash mob of twenty people stealing from a store? Send in forty drones to follow them home and arrest them at your convenience. Want to find out where the meth labs are? Send out the drones with appropriate sensors. A little kid or an old person with Alzheimer’s has wondered off? Drone grid search is the way to go.

If you want to really stir the poop, ask the following question: “when do the armed drones take over border enforcement?”

The truth is that the police can not continue as they have in the past. It costs too much to police the old fashioned way. The drones will probably become an absolute necessity within twenty years. That is a guess. If you have a better idea of the timeline, good for you. Drones will also reduce the number of officers. That will mean less expenses for pensions and payroll.

It isn’t a question of if, but when the armed drones will be in play. I just hope the political class truly understands the potential Pandora’s box that this technology can be.

I Support More Immigrants for EU

I finally realize that the Europeans are too damned stupid to survive. The sooner the EU falls, the better. After watching the idiot ultra-libtards in Sweden, I now realize that I should be supporting more Muhammadans in Europe.

All of those elites need to die as soon as possible. Let the dirty yaks screaming alla akbar be heard from one end of Europe to the other. Let the riots build and the gang rapes continue. Let the blood flow and let fires burn the EU down. Let chaos reign. Lets all watch the EU become a third world shit-hole.

Either the European people and military units will react, or they won’t. It should be quite entertaining.

NOT ONE AMERICAN LIFE, NOT ONE AMERICAN DOLLAR. Let the Eurotrash fight without our interference. They created the nightmare, no need to share it!

Intelligence People Can’t Win

The entire concept of intelligence agencies in a representative republic is that they CAN NEVER BE USED FOR POLITICAL GAMES! Evelyn Farkas worked for Obama and didn’t agree with that. Because Obama did everything he could to make sure anyone and everyone could use the intelligence reports for political gain, we now have a LOT of problems.

The unspoken and unwritten agreement between the people and the intelligence services is simple. As long as you are using whatever information you collect strictly to keep the nation as a whole safe from foreign threats and you keep what you know to yourself and do not use that information against citizens, no one is going to ask questions. Once that pact is violated, hostility sets in. Even assuming the best of motives and highest levels of character by all of the players, anger and rage are understandable. Obama and his evil self-serving minions may have done so much damage to the nation with this one series of evil machinations that we may never recover.

Can any intelligence agency ever assume that the raw intelligence data will stay safe from politicians playing games? No.

Can any informant ever assume the politicians won’t get their name? No.

Once the data from the intelligence reports was used as a political weapon, the entire intelligence infrastructure becomes suspect.

After seeing this person’s statements, I now have to assume that FBI Director James Comey and NSA head Michael Rogers lied to the House Intelligence Committee. They claimed that there was no wiretapping. They claimed that unmasking an American citizen practically takes an act of God. We can not afford to play games with this. Unfortunately for them, Evelyn pointed out that it was very easy to do…

Positive civilian control of the intelligence apparatus is critical in a free nation. We need to start with Comey and Rogers going to jail for a very long time. It needs to happen NOW.

Thank God Jeff Sessions is Attorney General. Oh, wait, he recused himself as demanded by the Democrats. Democrats that are up to their asses in this mess. Bet those Democrats don’t recuse themselves…

This is a mess that can not be left as it is.

German Immigrants are a Menace!

Think immigrants aren’t a problem? Do you want third world crap and urine in your Coca-cola? The Belfast Telegraph has an article, ‘Human waste’ in cans forces shutdown at Coca-Cola plant in Northern Ireland, that should demonstrate just how risky any food products from Europe are now.

After reading this article, I will NOT be consuming any products that I know are processed and sealed in Europe. I have a good supply of Marmite, so I will survive.

Japan Wants First Strike Capability

The Daily Mail has an article about Japan wanting to have a first strike capability.

Hiroshi Imazu, the head of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party’s security committee, summed it up: “We can’t just wait until we’re destroyed”

Other Japanese leaders are saying the same thing.

It may get a lot more interesting in Asia in the near future…

Robot Human Replacement Numbers

Gizmodo has an interesting article referencing an interesting report. Want to know what the numbers are when it comes to the effects of robots on employment in the United States?

Each additional robot in the US economy reduces employment by 5.6 workers, and every robot that is added to the workforce per 1,000 human workers causes wages to drop by as much as 0.25 to 0.5 percent. Such are the conclusions reached by MIT’s Daron Acemoglu and Boston University’s Pascual Restrepo, who published their findings at the National Bureau of Economic Research.

To download the National Bureau of Economic Research document, in pdf format, click here. The report explains its methodology in detail.

When projecting forward, there are going to be other factors that may modify the numbers. Will there be a tax on robots? Will robots fall in price and if so, by how much? Will there be an economic downturn that makes all of the numbers irrelevant?

Am I the only one wondering if there will be a monster computer virus created that will destroy multiple production facilities?

If robots are going to continue to take the factory jobs, what use are we going to have for low skilled workers from third world countries? If highly skilled manufacturing jobs are going the way of the dodo bird, do you seriously believe that the low skilled folks will still be needed? Those who are in the United States illegally will also find that unemployed factory workers aren’t all that happy about transferring what few benefits they have to people who shouldn’t even be here. Things are going to get messy.

The politicians, in both parties, that are bought and paid for by the United States Chamber of Commerce are making things worse by not cracking down now, before the bad times arrive…

Sweden’s Medical Care

Patient that had to wait for two days in emergency room – died

Lack of hospital beds and too high workload is behind one out of four reported deaths.

While watching this video, I stumbled upon a much bigger gem:
Norway is prepared to abandon the Geneva Convention if Sweden collapses! This is NOT the only source for this article.

Norway is prepared to abandon the Geneva Convention if Sweden collapses. The border will be closed by force, and Swedish refugees will be rejected without the possibility to seek asylum. “We are prepared for the worst,” says Prime Minister Erna Solberg.
