Friday Late Nite Lite: Drones, Domes and Storms Part Two

Good Late Nite!

And on to part two of tonight’s funnies. This post will be centered around the drones of Obama, including a little of this and that.

The first two are a take on Dr. Stranglove:

    These are all fabulous! Dr. Strangedrone and Dr. Strangedrone. LOL! I hope Obama sees those and finds some shame and humility within.

      Bill Maher says the drones should have to play the ice cream truck song. The target would still be dead but his last thought would be “hey, ice cream!”.

    • Thanks BB, hope you are doing okay up there. It is 4:15am and my kid is walking around outside, he has a friend over and he ignored my pleas to stay inside. I am furious.

    “…quit worrying about the Constitution…” Ouch! But all too true

    TV reporter discovers Onion stories are fake

    When WSFA-TV (Montgomery, Ala.) reporter Jennifer Oravet read in The Onion that PR firm Hill & Knowlton was advising the U.S. to cut ties with Alabama, she went to work, made a phone call and posted her findings on Facebook:

    “I contacted the PR firm listed in this article, they claim the article is ‘ficticious’ and have no involvement in the alleged study.”

    Actually, Jennifer, all Onion articles are fictitious. (Just one c.) …

    Bwahahahaha pretty cartoon like anyway :-)

    Seattle mayor Mike McGinn ordered the Seattle Police Department to abandon its plan to use dronesits plan to use drones after residents and privacy advocates protested. ….

    McGinn said the two drones purchased by the city with federal funds will be returned to their vendor. ….

    The announcement came one day after the city held a public hearing on a proposed ordinance outlining restrictions for the department’s drone program, which drew vocal opposition from numerous citizens concerned with intrusions into their privacy. The ordinance was expected to come up for a vote later this month.

    However, the City’s 24-hr “security” cameras in residential areas are still a go:

    the $5 million grant that paid for the cameras was approved by the City Council in May of last year. A network of cameras was mentioned in passing during the briefing given pre-vote to the Public Safety, Technology, and Civil Rights Committee, but locations were not discussed, and it was described only as “port security,” with no mention that cameras would be installed in recreational/residential zones.

    Americans live in a police-state country now.

    Moyers guest: Internet company ‘bullies’ charge ‘a lot’ for access but give ‘second class access’

    Bill Moyers sat down with Susan Crawford, a former special assistant to President Obama in science, technology and innovation and the author of Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age, to discuss internet inequality — and how internet providers grossly overcharge for subpar internet service.
    […]
    It’s yet another realm in which the divide between the rich and the poor continues to grow and deepen, she said.

    But it’s not just the economically impoverished who lose out. Even those who can afford internet are getting a bad deal, she argues, claiming that in Hong Kong, “you can get a 500 megabit symmetric connection that’s unimaginably fast from our standpoint for about 25 bucks a month. In Seoul, for $30 you get three choices of different providers of fiber in your apartment. And they come in and install in a day because competition’s so fierce. In New York City there’s only one choice, and it’s 200 bucks a month for a similar service.”

    Can we break up these monopolies and get some competition in the market please?!!

    • janicen says:

      Ain’t it strange? I distinctly remember that they did break up the telecom monopoly, once upon a time.

      Thank you for posting this RalphB. This is an outrage, and the crap internet service that’s available to rural customers is criminal.

      • RalphB says:

        Before we broke up the old AT&T monopoly, we essentially had a utility or a federally regulated monopoly. We never got competition since the Baby Bells stayed intact. The Telecommunications Act of 1996 was supposed to foster competition but failed miserably and only made it worse. Now we have largely unregulated monopolies, the worst of the possibilities.

      • NW Luna says:

        and the crap internet service in cities, too.
