Local authorities had reported it was possibly a weather balloon or a remote controlled something. Let me see if I can find the reference.

Yes. And Krauthamer said the first American to shoot one down will be a folk Hero.

YouTube shows a drone over Chicago just before the NATO meeting. I think it was on FR.

Man, I’m in trouble. I’m a Veteran and member of the Tea Party. Lots of us are in trouble, I assume.

Sorry, Newbie ;-)

Just joking with you - the "get rest" thing is an old FR meme.

As most folks know,

I’m forbidden to post about such things and ordered to take that “c**p” elsewhere.

So I have.

Sorry.
