    We better set up TSA Checkpoints and have Drones flying 24/7 right away!

    The Pentagon says it, so it must be true! :uhoh3:

    Waiting for the brainwashed Military types to come in here and say "That's Freedom! God Bless America!".

    No shit - a drone flew over our place the other day. About 500 feet up. The freakiest thing I ever saw.

    I told my wife about it - about two hours later - we were sitting out back.

    She's got this "yeah right" look on her face.

    Just them - I shit you not - the damned thing flew over again in the opposite direction, back to it's home base, wherever the fuck that is.

    My guess - Pax River, Md.

    We had what was classified as an IED placed at a parade here by an American citizen.

    FBI: Spokane bomb is 'domestic terrorism' - US news - Crime & courts - NBCNews.com

    The wackos that live up in the mountains around here scare me more than Muslim terrorists.

    The biggest threat the American people face is Washington D.C.

    Yep..The government doesn't have to worry about IED's
    being used against it here at home, until they come to try and disarm patriotic Americans, then I'm sure all bets are off.
    On a related topic,
    Not a good sign that "homelend" is and has been buying ammo
    like mad. They are either storing up for use on Americans, or an expected price increase is in the works due to tighter regulations being imposed soon....or do they expect mass riots and protests as a result of some more serious totalitarian actions against us?

    What kind of explosives did the radical left "weatherman" use to blow up corporate headquarters, police departments, Military recruitment centers and their own sorry asses? Anybody in Homeland Security think about asking Obama's political mentor Bill Ayers?

    If there was any real threat from IEDs in America, wouldn't it have happened in the past decade during the war on terrorists?
