The Drone Zone?

Bullet Points:

** Critical Race Theory – is voted out in Temecula CA. The Temecula Valley Unified School District fell under the national media spotlight in December when a slate of newly elected conservative school trustees—Joseph Komrosky, Jen Wiersma, and Danny Gonzalez—were sworn into office. The trio shifted the balance of power on the school board and voted to ban CRT at the board’s first meeting after the Nov. 8 election.

“We’re not debating whether we should have [CRT] or not. It is condemned. It is gone,” Komrosky said at the meeting. “We have local control here as school board members. We can make it explicitly clear what we condemn. Racism is morally reprehensible, and CRT is racism in disguise.”

** The return of baby food shortages in America…amazing.

** Border Hearings – “Did You Parachute in from Another Planet?” – Sen John Kennedy

** Aborting Trafficking – Soon illegal in Idaho – Idaho already has some of the most comprehensive abortion restrictions on the books, with nearly all abortions banned in the state and an affirmative defense law that essentially asserts any doctor who provides an abortion is guilty until proven innocent. House Bill 242, which passed through the state House and is likely to move quickly through the Senate, seeks to limit minors’ ability to travel for abortion care without parental consent. The legislation would create a whole new crime — dubbed “abortion trafficking” — which is defined in the bill as an “adult who, with the intent to conceal an abortion from the parents or guardian of a pregnant, unemancipated minor, either procures an abortion … or obtains an abortion-inducing drug” for the minor. “Recruiting, harboring, or transporting the pregnant minor within this state commits the crime of abortion trafficking,” the legislation adds.

  1. MQ-1C Grey Eagle ?

    Not totally confident here, there are an ass-ton of drones that look similar.

    Maybe Surly has already answered, while I type!

    -Kle.

  2. What! Kammy is lying about her heritage? Well, there goes the whole day, my world is shattered.

    I noticed a ripple in The Matrix as Kle and Surly raced to post the plane ID…expecting another as PDJT hits back at this asinine political hit-job worthless indictment.

    Bridge- Me blowing our connection to the Federal government by years end.

      1. Another useful idiot posing as something she’s not…and the useless media fawns. Then again, most are of that ilk who enter politics or positions that afford them the ability to tell others how they should live. I’ve been up close and personal with one in my life, lied straight to my face then lied to the press about her involvement. Obscurity (or prison) never seems to follow these people as it should.

          1. Games by people who are Satans operatives.

            Glad to read you are on the mend and back home.

  3. CRT. Good on them. There needs to be a nationwide push to get rid of CRT and schools are a good start.

    Drone. Thought it was a Predator but it would be more interesting if it was carrying live rounds instead of inert munitions.

    Wet year in AZ. Beautiful area you live in LL.

    Abortions. There is a need for abortions but they should be limited to only for the mother’s (is that sexist now) health. Otherwise it is just murder. Abortions on demand are evil and contribute a lot to the loss of personal responsibility that we should all have as a civilized race.

    Bridge. Controlled demolition is kind of beautiful in its own way when everything works as planned. The photographer did a great job, you can even see the primacord cooking off.

  4. Idaho and abortion.
    Their state, their viewpoint. I do take exception to a doctor being guilty until proven innocent. That is a very slippery slope; a precedence that can be applied in other areas.

  5. No wishing to start a foofaraw (heh!), but …
    if you consider abortion murder (which I do), then who is the guilty party (I’m certain there’s a word for this in Legalese, but I’m not a lawyer):
    the one agreeing to the abortion and carrying the murder victim (the mother),
    the one(s) procuring the abortion (Planned Parenthood),
    the one performing the abortion (the doctor).

    1. Wow that would be a mess. Still think abortions should be legal in some rare cases but only for the mother’s physical or mental health. Having said that, in my opinion, and I am not a lawyer either, the person requesting the abortion would be the perpetrator and the others involved would be accomplices. We have slid so far down this particular slippery slope that, if we start now, it will take a couple of generations to climb back up.

      1. Beyond rape, incest or the life of the mother – doctors become co-conspirators.

        If a felon kills a pregnant woman, he’s charged with a double murder. In every state.

        Riddle me that one.

        1. It’s an argument of convenience.

          A pro-abortion woman would vehemently demand justice for the unborn ‘baby’ and its mother then turn around and say “my body my choice” when a pregnancy is inconvenient to her.

          Doesn’t scan…but that’s where we are in a society that has eschewed God for self.

    2. I would rather live in a society where the next generation of members are given genes and values from parents who wanted them.

      Bad parents don’t become good parents just because cops prevented her from aborting. Abortion bans are like drug bans, they add new problems to an already bad situation. Banning abortion is like paying welfare mothers to breed or encouraging smart women to work instead of have children, you get more of the less fit. The rape exception shows abortion bans are not about the unborn baby, which isn’t a criminal.

      Notice how ‘my body my choice’ and ‘free speech’ are now reversed to ‘jab them’ and ‘cancel them’. The policy slippery slope appears from mentally agreeing that any other human has the right to convert you to their religion by the sword.

        1. I’m watching the movie of the sperm approaching the egg, and wondering exactly where along this sequence the egg is promoted to legal personhood. The age at which an immature birth can be supported outside the womb keeps getting younger, with proportional cost. Once she’s carrying a legal person, the mother commits reckless endangerment by drinking alcohol or taking the wrong drugs, will you prosecute and jail her to prevent harming the baby? The state owns the baby, not the parent?

          the general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view. the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately, by the grace of god. — Jefferson

  6. I really enjoy watching that bridge blowing up, every now & then I’ll find it just to watch for a minute or so…

    Wet year in a lot of places out west this year.

    I went to the US Air Force museum in Ohio and went into the room with the drones, they had a monster hanging from the ceiling! I had not realized how big they could be…

    1. I believe that is the old US281 bridge across the Colorado river in Marble Falls TX. Saw series of stills of that vid in the Blue Bonnet Cafe there last Summer.

  7. Last I heard, our snowpack was at something like 130%. We got clipped with 4~5″ the other day when the NWS forecast “flurries”. I expect one more heavy snow this season.

    1. That can’t hurt the ground water supply. We are at 107% and are expecting more this weekend. Hoping and praying we won’t have too many brush fires this year.

      1. New storm blowing in now, and still chilly temps so it’ll soak in.

        I always found it humous with the “100%” snowpack level and how that was defined?

        1. Good question. I’m guessing it’s based on all the past recorded measurements.

  8. Good on them for booting CRT! Yep, Predator. It doesn’t have the inboard hard points, but it DOES have a Hellfire on the rail. Beautiful picture of the waterfall in Arizona, and that’s a LOT of det cord in that last gif!!!

  9. On abortion ,the old saying about hard cases make bad law. Rape incest health of the mother use to be a reasonable consideration . But an innocent is still dieing . But health of the fetus is another concern. In some cases a seriously deformed child ,that would spend its short life in horrible pain , it might be a mercy killing. It’s all horrible to contemplate. When I think about the animals I’ve had to put down, I get a little misty. But a baby ,,,sheesh .

    1. If you’re counting the smaller UAVs – A LOT OF THEM. And they’re in acquisition mode.

  10. Late to the party, but CRT and DEI were banned in Ottawa County, Michigan.
    County motto was changed, people were fired.
    My friends legal firm is now the counties legal representation.
    They are being approached by a few other counties also.

    1. A pebble tossed into a pond create ripples that extend to the edges. Excellent news Ed.
