    I saw one a few days ago flying over the area.

    We have an airport about 5 or so miles south of my house, an airforce base 8 miles northeast of my house, and another air force base about 15-20 south east of my house.


    The way to identify them is if they are
    1. Flying unusually slow
    2. Flying unusually low
    3. Are unusually quiet while in flight.

    But use binoculars to see if it is a drone.

    I tried to take a pic, but it was right after the sun went down, so my camera couldn't get it.

    To quote those who supported the Patriot Act.
    If you have done nothing wrong you have nothing to worry about.

    I thought, and others in my area also thought that we saw and heard a drone going up the coast of Maine back post the 911 event.

    Haven't seen anything like it since.

    The Patriot Act is only as corrupt as the man in the White House is.

    Wrongo!

    That presumes that the faceless bureaucrat's every action is dictated by the POTUS.

    I mean come on you do live in the REAL WORLD, don't you Mud?

    You know better than that, I know you do.

    I do live in the real world.

    Sure, there are times when people step out of line, but projects like this don't happen without the president's approval.

    Fast And Furious is a prime example of this.

    Is it illegal to shoot at them with a 30.06?
