Parent is on-point. Feds are using "fear" and "misunderstanding" in order to ground drones so they can continue burning ranchers out of their homesteads, bankrupting them, forcing them to free their land so it can be "reclaimed" in the name of "conservation" without being seen by the public. This, is the real reason.

If you're wondering why we're questioning government-funded research that's been going on since Bush41 and was designed to obtain one and only one conclusion; that we are somehow warming the Earth and therefore need government oversight and regulation over every human activity that will, in the end, enslave our children, grandchildren, grand-grandchildren, etc... then yes, we are seeing thru the thinly veiled plan.

Submission + - Classic Rock Concert Website Set to Shut It's Doors

realperseus writes: I just received an email from Alex Reisner, the administrator of Classic Rock Concerts, a website that allows users to document old Rock concerts they have attended by telling their personal stories and uploading pictures of ticket stubs. His current site is a "Ruby on Rails application, currently running on Ruby 1.8.7 and Rails 2.3.18." His current host, Heroku has announced its plans to shut down the Bamboo stack on June 16, 2015 and recommends that all apps be migrated to the Cedar stack. Alex is looking to get the site upgraded to Ruby 2.0 at minimum and has started a Kickstarter to keep food on his table and a roof over his head while he carrys out this work.

I think the same intoxicant caught up with Mark Zuckerberg. At one time he probably would have been thrilled to have enough to by a modest house and a sports car. Now it's snowballing and he wants to keep in snowballing for himself. Looks rather like it's beginning to melt.

Money also draws people that love money, think people that literally dream about making money with other peoples money. Zuckerburg attracted these types of people with his money. These folks perhaps said "Listen, we can double-triple-quadruple-makemore of what you have now. Just follow us". This, coupled with greed, has produced many of the 1% of the population that control 40% of the wealth here in the states.

One day from now, we'll be buying our gasoline/petro from the HSBC gas station. Then again, we already maybe doing that..
