In a city environment, it would be reasonably safe to use a pellet gun on a drone if one were so inclined.

You know, if a drone gets within 15 feet or so, and you have one, catch the thing with a fisherman’s cast net. That would be cool. It would be especially easy throwing out and down from a high rise balcony.
not only a fishing net but a fishing pole. I know armed with my trusty 5 ft. bass pole/reel I can hit anything at 60 yrds. Tie a practice weight on the line, cast, and haul in the drone. I would give it back too. Just come and get it. Whats left of it I mean

What Socialist just don’t get is the “the customer always pays”. Let’s say all companies become slaves of the State and pay whatever Jonathan Alter demands. The companies, to stay solvent, pass thos costs on to their customers and so on….. It becomes quickly evident that the individual working taxpayer is actually footing the bill for these “corporate taxes”, which means that these taxes on business are really a hidden tax on us all. IT’S JUST ANOTHER CUTE COMMUNIST REDISTRIBUTION SCHEME!
This was to the people behind the Iron Curtain? It sounds like it could be an address to the people living in Blue states in this country.
You clearly have not read him. He was a communist sympathizer in several of his books and his most famous book The Grapes of Wrath it comes out very unmistakably

“Suing celebrities is fun,” said the lawyer. They usually settle, just to avoid the headache. But just to be clear – I’d sue Frank here as well.”
Justice used to be straightforward and usually administered swiftly and correctly before the tort lawyers showed up. This ****** pig would sue Rowe and the store owner not because his client was wronged but because he stood an excellent chance of an easy payday. This has nothing to do with rights and justice, it is always about the money. The lawyer is only marginally better than the shoplifter.
"Justice used to be straightforward and usually administered swiftly and correctly before the tort lawyers showed up. "
When was that? When we lynched people without trial? When we enslaved our fellow humans? Pray tell when this magical forgotten time was when things were 'just' in this country or its legal system? (Also, tort law precedes this country's existence, being inherited from English common law which predates the settlement of the New World by Europeans).

“They have been to the restaurants,” Town Manager C.J. Dean told NPR. “They been to the gas stations. They been to the car wash this morning. You know, they been to Dollar General store buying stuff, so there is already some small economic activity.”
It this guy joking? He talks about economic activity from impoverished foreign children? This is ludicrous. The town should fire this idiot.
Just having the employees from several federal departments in town has already resulted in more business.
I believe he was talking about the Fed people that were there.
I agree these 'people', kids or not, shouldn't be driven or flown anywhere in this country. Send them back across the border as soon as they get here.
What did they learn at the car wash?

Board them onto Navy transports and send them back home. Give their home countries a bribe if necessary, but get them back home immediately.

Repeal the 16th and 17th amendments while you’re at it.

I don’t get to tell my employer to give me a raise when I can’t manage my budget. I cut my expenses. The Federal government needs to do the same.

600,000 Americans already paid those reparations with their lives 150 years ago. Move on.

This goes to show how desperate states are. Their state pension fund obligations are huge.

See my story below. If my brother had lived in Georgia, my niece and I probably would have lost $100,000 and not been the wiser.

I think it is just investment houses but who knows? They could require that of all companies in their states.
I worked at a large investment house. Both banks and brokerages will es-cheat accounts that have the statements returned and no claim to them after a certain period of time. In accordance with state laws.

I had this happen to me recently. My brother died in January 2007 and named his daughter and I as co-beneficiaries of a $100,000 investment account. We were totally unaware that we were beneficiaries. The only way the management company found my niece was through her husband who had an account with them. It was she who contacted me. Let that be a lesson to us all: make provision to notify beneficiaries in the event of your death. He had a “back-of-the-envelope” will.
The legal term for a state seizing assets like this is called “escheatment”. The state of Mississippi somehow became aware of this money and started action to seize it. The management company said that it is like a runaway freight train. You basically have to claim your money and “get out of the way” or they will run you down. There was no mechanism to notify them and stop action. Thankfully we came forward and claimed the assets and started new accounts before the state could.
My question is: How did they become aware of the money in the first place unless they make laws demanding this of investment houses?

These school board president are invariably ego maniacs. They get paid huge salaries and huge severance packages with they are separated. They are famous for this crap.

300 billion is not correct. 30 billion maybe. That’s bad enough. We do have to get ready for some kind of amnesty despite the decades of government malfeasance and incompetence.

He admitted he was not prepared to run in the last election. He’s very good.

They want lots more dead humans. They’ve publish white papers on it.

DDT is the best way to deal with mosquitoes but the Left took care of that to save eagles. Ironically they are killing far more eagles and other birds than DDT with their ****** wind farms.
