The Trump administration had no right to send the drone over Minneapolis on May 29 because the city is far outside the 100-mile inland operational zone of the Customs and Border Protection

I think we should seize all their assets.  See how they like it.

I bet they wouldn't like it.

they were also arresting people and questioning them about their political leanings. no telling what kind of database Barr has compiled with all the social media data mining and everything else at his disposal.

That's odd...because she's 30 years old now...and to be president you have to be 35.

It's also kind raises a quandry...because she's born in October. So...TECHNICALLY...she could run while being 'underaged' and then go on to meet the requirment in Jan the next year.

You don't need an armed drone for surveillance.

Predator? No no no, it was a Freedom Drone!

You don't hate freedom do you?

As someone who works in this field I will tell you that most large PDs have their own surveillance aircraft -- commonly Cessna C206s, C208s, Beechcraft B300s, and of course rotorcraft platforms -- and don't need to rely on military drones to spy on folks.

So five years from now is 2025.  Is there a presidential election that year?  When's the next one?
 
2020-06-08 5:37:57 PM  
Is it actually illegal? I mean it probably should be, but is it any different than a helicopter (other than cheaper with longer range)?

Now they want to know where else drones might have gone, and whether any were using facial recognition software to monitor protesters demonstrating against police violence.

You should already assume they're using every kind of tech they have at their disposal. It's the things that you don't know about that should really bring you concern.

Silly AOC, it wasn't a border patrol Predator. It was one of the ones with hellfire missiles.

But Trump couldn't figure out how to work the joystick, so they never got around to firing.

You have to be 35 or older to become president, i.e. as long as you're at least 35 years old on or before January 20, you're eligible.

AOC would be 35 by Election Day 2024, so she'd be eligible in 2024 if she's interested.

My county's Sheriff Dept. has a "drone officer."
I went to school with him and that boy never could keep a job until he destroyed the pasture below my house to build a moto-cross track and invited every cop coward in the county to come out and play every farkin' day.

They also have two helicopters, in fact, one flew over the mountain this morning.

Everyone is on lockdown.  There are maybe 5 cars on the road every day and one is the mail lady.

Real hotbed of insurrection here, I tell you.

You give cops a toy--they are going to use them.

======================================​==

She was born in October 1989.  In November of 2024, the next election, she'll be just a few weeks over 35.

/More than likely 35 refers to inauguration day, but it doesn't matter.  She'll be 35 either way.
//I like her, but she's NOT presidential material (at least, yet).  We do not need a left-wing Trump in the white-house, if she somehow got nominated and elected.  No.  She can do what she needs to in congress, she's doing great work there.
