Police bust ​crooks using drone to smuggle contraband

Stop Making Sense

From WALB:

Trying to get contraband into a prison is nothing new, but there is a new method. This week, some creative crooks tried to get tobacco to South Georgia prisoners by using a remote controlled helicopter, but they didn’t get away with it.

A lieutenant from the Calhoun State prison noticed a small helicopter flying over the gates of and a search began. Sheriff Josh Hilton says about an hour later deputies noticed a suspicious black dodge car with Gwinnett County tags on Edison Street.

“After we gained consent to search the car we found the helicopter and I don’t know exactly how much it was but probably about one or two pounds of tobacco rolled up,” said Hilton.

Homeless Vancouver man moves people to tears with music in Portland, Oregon

My Opinion My Vote

This video of a homelessVancouver Washington man playing Piano at a Portland secondhand store is moving to say the least. Being homeless one would think that there is no hope in life and that you are invisible to those around you. But not for David Allen Welsh, a man with no formal piano teachings and ability to read sheet music. His raw talent is amazing to watch as his playing brings tears to the eyes of those watching him play.

Decide for yourself.

Will the “Death Panel” Meet Its Own Death Panel?

A Time For Choosing

by Whitney Pitcher

obama-obamacare-death-panel-kathleen-sebelius

In the midst of the Obamacare exchange website debacle and the employer mandate lawsuits, other problems with the law and its rollout have gotten lost in the shuffle or at least lost in the rhetoric. The “death panel”, as Governor Palin termed bureaucrats charged with rationing of care in a government led health system, once was deemed the “lie of the year”. Since then, numerous Democrats and pundits have admitted that rationing will occur under the law and have called for repeal of that portion of the law.

The “death panel” or the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) is really quite Orwellian Newspeak in its name, as it is neither independent nor advisory in nature. To put it in simpler terms, let’s say that every American is given a piece of birthday cake when they turn 65 years old. Sounds nice, right? In reality, a group…

NSA Sent Home Talking Points for Employees to Use in Conversations with Family & Friends During Holidays

Stop Making Sense

From Firedoglake:

A sheet of talking points for employees of the National Security Agency and Central Security Services, was sent out ahead of Thanksgiving to help guide conversations with family and friends during the holiday season.

Firedoglake obtained a copy of a two-page document that was sent out on November 22. It was clearly put together for rebutting statements about the NSA from news stories on documents disclosed by former NSA contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden, and it encouraged employees to “share the following points with family members and close friends.”

The “talking points” sheet suggests that employees make five key points: (1) NSA’s mission is of great value to the Nation”; (2) NSA performs its mission the right way—lawful, compliant and in a way that protects civil liberties and privacy; (3) NSA performs its mission exceptionally well. We strive to be the best that we can be, because that’s what America requires…
