The entire Apollo program was filled with near misses and serendipitous moments. Kinda scary to read about now.
The one thing the Feds can and should do and they are asleep at the switch.
The ability to trace a firearm is overblown. The majority of traces will lead back to a legal owner who had the weapon stolen. The other alternative is an idiot who buys a weapon, registers it, commits a crime with it, and then leaves it at the scene. Even then that is probably not enough to convict. You will have to establish motive and place them at the scene.
And if you have serial numbers then you are most likely in possession of the weapon, so finger printing is a far better investigative track to follow.
It flew in on coach.
Somehow it got through the quarantine and flight restrictions the Obama Administration wisely set up to catch these kinds of things.
I have been eagerly awaiting a one OS fits all devices solution.
I can't wait to load the three DVDs onto my phone and tablet!
Seems to me that these drones would fit right into language covering law enforcement helicopters. There is no real difference other than expense.
There is something offensive about saying these kinds of activities are perfectly fine for representatives of the State, yet illegal for the citizens of the State.
The problem with your position is that you put the reporters in a position of deciding what is true or not.

When the arrive, they'll plant a flag and claim the entire planet for the Worker's Party.
You know all those movies about some future Dystopia where everything is dimly lit, grey and depressing?
Those worlds used these fancy new light bulbs.
Many things are impractical to do with a dashboard.
Reports also represent data at a specific point in time. Monthly, quarterly, yearly finance reports are mandated by Accounting Standards I believe. Your taxes statements are essentially reports.
Sometimes you need to be able to fix data a specific point in time in order to consider it and take action on it.
In the same way that Free Will allows scumbags to kill and maim, steal, etc. So too does the Free Market allow some companies to exploit and profit from people in unfortunate circumstances.
Many of these companies still charge 29% interest rate, which seems to me to be usury.
So that's a great big Nuh Uh! from you then?
Perhaps in small business applications you may be right. But the Big Guys...National Banks, large aerospace, etc. COBOL runs the core systems.
And I'd choose COBOL for reliability and maintainability anytime.
This was discussed on a local talk show in Austin and several HR folks from major tech companies here called in.
They claimed that for graduate level positions, they receive hardly any applications from women and very few from American born men. Mostly foreign born applications here on work visas or in the naturalization process.
