Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 7/21/2016

Can't wait till BOTH the Republican and Democratic conventions are over. Still haven't watched Spotlight, i think it's on Netflix now. 

Still wish Bernie would have gone after Clinton on her emails, but oh well. The people still for Bernie AFTER BERNIE ENDORSED CLINTON seem to be misguided.  

So, some heads are exploding because Ted Cruz said last night he wanted religious freedom for atheists.

Freedom means religious freedom, whether you are Christian or Jew, Muslim or atheist. Gay or straight, the Bill of Rights protects the rights of all of us to live according to our conscience.

 I LOVE Michelle Obama, so cute

Uh. Somebody made a fun and flamethrower drone. FAA says he can't. That's good news. Bad enough to think of somebody flying a drone around you on the beach, much less armed with a dang gun.

As Ars reported previously, the case dates back to July 2015. The pilot, Austin Haughwout, posted a video of his drone rigged up with a handgun. By early November 2015, the Federal Aviation Administration sent the two Haughwouts an administrative subpoena seeking a substantial amount of records, including purchase records and an accounting of what monies, if any, were gained from the "Flying Gun" YouTube video.

His father, Bret Haughwout, declined the government’s efforts. He told the FAA in an e-mail that because the agency had not alleged a particular violation he was under no obligation to comply. The FAA has not accused either man of a crime, but the organization merely seeks to acquire further information about their drone-related activities.

Within weeks, Austin Haughwout published a second video, dubbed "Roasting the Holiday Turkey." It shows a drone with a flamethrower attached, firing at a turkey roasting on a spit. Again, the FAA asked the Haughwouts to respond, and again, they refused.

Finally on February 11, 2016, the FAA took them to court, asking a federal judge to enforce the subpoena. Within weeks, US District Judge Jeffrey A. Meyer asked for further briefing in Huerta v. Haughwout—so the government and the Haughwouts formally faced off.
