This should be interesting, as far as I understand it they don't actually have the authority to do this. Anything drone-related falls under FAA jurisdiction, and they're taking their damn time on the regulations there.

There used to be a spring not to far from the top of Mt Rogers, made staying overnight up there really convenient if you had a good water filter. On night in late summer of '93 I was camping up there and there was some fog. It settled in the valleys blocking when little nearby light pollution existed back then and the sky too up the darkest backgrounds I've ever seen east of Mississipi, the Milky Way stopped being a broad haze and took on texture from the thousands of individually visible 6th and 7th magnitude stars. The people who are really dedicated to dark sky stargazing (its a thing, you be surprised how many people are into it) say you can't skies like that any further east than western Nebraska.
Its a nice spot, too bad the rest of the state turned into such an unlivable hellhole

72nd Anniversary of Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima - On Aug. 6, 1945, the atomic bomb dropped by the Enola Gay Boeing B-29 detonated, killing an estimated 140,000 people. Three days later, the U.S. dropped a second bomb on the city of Nagasaki, killing an estimated 75,000. Within weeks, Japan surrendered.

About 50,000 people, including representatives from 80 nations, gathered for an annual ceremony at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park Sunday, reports The Japan Times.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called for global cooperation to end nuclear weapons.
"For us to truly realize a world without nuclear weapons, the participation of both nuclear weapon states and non-nuclear weapon states is necessary," he said.
Last month, the United Nations reached its first agreement to ban nuclear weapons. But Japan, along with the nine nuclear-armed nations, including the United States, refused to take part in the negotiations and the vote.
Critics of the treaty, including the United States, say it does nothing to counter the "grave threat posed by North Korea's nuclear program." Member states can sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons next month; if ratified, it will be put into effect 90 days later, reports The New York Times.
Japan already adheres to a policy of not possessing, producing or allowing nuclear weapons on its territory. It is the only country to have ever come under nuclear attack. http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/08/06/541885092/japan-calls-for-denuclearized-world-on-72nd-anniversary-of-hiroshima

Sunday marked 72 years since the U.S. dropped one of two atomic bombs on Japan. On the eve of the anniversary, organizers of a peace event lit up torches on floats on the Motoyasu River next to the Atomic Bomb Dome in Hiroshima.

Onion Fact Checks: Anthony Scaramucci’s ‘New Yorker’ Interview - In an interview with The New Yorker earlier today, White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci leveled harsh criticism against the FBI and members of the Trump administration. The Onion fact-checks Scaramucci’s claims. http://www.theonion.com/infographic/onion-fact-checks-anthony-scaramuccis-new-yorker-i-56502
* “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock.”
TRUE: Scaramucci understands that true inner peace comes from accepting one’s flaws and only very rarely sucking oneself off.

* “I’ve done nothing wrong on my financial disclosures, so they’re going to have to go fuck themselves.”
TRUE: Scaramucci’s financial records appear accurate, so under U.S. federal statutes his detractors are required by law to go fuck themselves no later than 10 business days from the date of filing.

* “What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the president’s agenda on track.”
PARTIALLY TRUE: He omitted that he also wants to fuck the leakers’ bitches in front of their kids and then carve a nice 6-inch souvenir on their face for their trouble.

* “They’re trying to resist me, but it’s not going to work.”
TRUE: The Mooch is hot, baby! Sizzling! Nobody can stop this kid!

* “Yeah, let me go, though, because I’ve gotta start tweeting some shit to make [Reince Priebus] crazy.”
FALSE: Priebus was driven far beyond the point of mental insanity by members of this administration many months ago.

  "USA most taxed nation in the world" is a wild lie that Trump keeps repeating. Here's a list of all the countries rating their total tax revenue as a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_tax_revenue_to_GDP_ratio
Denmark tops the list at 50.8% with Belgium & France at 47.9%. US is #66 at 26%.

Actual Trump Quotes Read By Cartoon Donald Trump https://youtu.be/DREO6cwbGeQ

For the third time, Donald Trump, U.S. is not 'highest taxed nation in the world'
"We’re the highest taxed nation in the world. Our businesses pay more taxes than any businesses in the world. That’s why companies are leaving."
This is a version of one of Trump’s oft-repeated talking points, and it’s inaccurate.
When we looked at this claim in the past, we compared the United States to the 33 other industrialized nations in Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
Data from 2014, the most recent year available, shows that the United States wasn’t the most highly taxed by the typical metrics and actually places near the bottom or around the middle of the pack.
Trump specified this time that he was talking about business taxes, but the essential data doesn’t back him there, either.
Trump would have been more accurate if he had been more specific. The United States does have one of the highest top marginal corporate tax rates in the world. However, companies pay less in practice because they can take deductions and exclusions. When we look at the actual tax burden on U.S. companies, it’s far from highest in the world. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2016/may/08/donald-trump/donald-trump-us-not-highest-taxed-nation-in-world/

Yes, the top marginal corporate income tax rate in the US is 39.1 percent (consisting of the 35% federal rate plus a combined state rate), but the average rate that corporations actually pay is around 12 to 13 percent.

>Regarding ITAR (have to comply)
>"80% receivers will never qualify for NFA “tax stamp” status due to the fact that it’s never been registered with the ATF, because doing so would require the possession of a manufacturer license.(7,10,11 just one not all) Also, you must pay the excise tax of 11% of the value of the firearm to the internal revenue service and you must be in compliance with (ITAR) international traffic in arms regulations this is controlled by the Department of State."

80% lowers are illegal because RCMP just decided so a few weeks ago. To any other canuck here, my condolences, and please hand over any sufficiently large pieces of wood, plastic, or metal that could potentially be milled into an AR lower to the horse police.

Que Dieu bénisse le Canada, et que les Américains (ou n'importe qui d'autre) nous bombarde à plat d'armes nucléaires pour qu'on puisse échapper à cet interminable fléau infernal de diantre politiciens malfaiteurs.

What do you think about the possibility that the entire leadership of the Republican party has been infiltrated by America-hating communists? I don't entirely doubt it. It explains some things about Republicans, particularly their failure to ever do much to actually shrink the size of government when they're in power, or to grant more power to states or shrink the deficit.
Thats the kind of stuff that they promise and why we vote for them, but they never delivered it yet. Last time they had the reigns of power we got a ton of new debt, the Patriot act & all the domestic surveillance that went along with it. Thats like opposite of what everyone wanted right? Everyone except for America-hating communists, that is.

Was there any doubt smart guns suck balls? I mean I'm not against smart guns as a concept, hell I'd probably want one if I had kids. But the tech to make an effective and reliable one is just not there.

Of course anti-gunners would make the argument smart gun tech sucks because of "gun nuts" blocking attempts though in our defense too many anti-gunners see smart guns as the ultimate gun control, a gun that the benevolent government can shut off with the press of a button. I bet they thought this was a much better idea when the person was Obama, probably not such a good idea now that Trump would have it.

Oh well, still looking forward to the day I can play MP3s on my gun and jailbreak it to run Doom.

You only need to engineer it properly. This is a commercial product, and people go for cheapest and most simple decisions, even if that defeats the entire purpose in the hindsight. People pay additional value for "safety" that simply isn't there, but since they still believe in it, nobody really tries to jailbreak it.
