FAA Says North Dakota Cops Commited Felony by Shooting Down DAPL Protester Drones

As a "drone operator" and Earth-lover I find the actions by both the "authorities" and the FAA disgusting. Is it a false equivalency to compare the Bundy terrorists taking over a wildlife refuge (with guns to boot) to peaceful Native American activists seeking to protect ancestral lands and water sources?

It's also disgusting that the FAA complies with "law enforcement" and issues temporary flight restrictions that ban the use of hobby drones, even if there is no air traffic.


Trumps under-age teen sex parties - Where are the victims?

Before I ask my questions, I have to state that I early-voted for Hilary, I supported Bernie early-on and am a lefty. I've read all about the women complaining about Orange-face groping them and his sexual assaults. Trump disgusts me in every way. That said, have any of you wondered why the teen Trump sex party victims have not spoken-up? Have they been paid off? Do they exist? How does an investigative reporter find them? How do they feel about Trump?

Buying (Trumpf) Domain names

Buy yours now... In light of the speculation that the republican nominee for president may be looking to start a news channel, I encourage all of you to start your own is his Majesty's name sake by buying your desired domain name. It's easy to determine what domain's are still left (Not many), but use your imagination! Personally, I use Moniker, but there are many other domain registrars.

Of course, the best are already taken, but I'm sure there are more we have not thought of. Here are the domains I have secured so far:


Please share what domains you secure!

Alzheimer's Trump?

Not sure this has been posted before:

Ten Signs of Alzheimer’s

1. Memory Loss
Memory loss is easily the most associated symptom of Alzheimer’s disease although it isn’t often how people think it is. Many are under the impression that with the onset of Alzheimer’s that the memory simply begins to fade, and while that is true in some cases, and in most over time, at the beginning, it is new information that is usually the type that suffers. 

2. Employment Problems
The general population these days is working several years later in life than was once the norm. It is through this that we have been able to notice these symptoms unfold in real time.  At the early onset of Alzheimer’s, as we mentioned before, learning new skills and retention of that knowledge can be very difficult. And in many cases, it isn’t just new skills that become difficult to perform or retain. Tasks that and individual has done for years without any problem can suddenly become daunting and even confusing. Employers might tell you that you appear to be overwhelmed or are getting behind in your work. 

3. Daily Life Confusion
While most may desire to forget they even have monthly expenses to pay, you don’t want to get your finances all mixed up without even knowing it. Imagine having your electric turned off because you were confused paying the bills last month; this is all too common for Alzheimer’s patients. Everyday tasks become more and more challenging which is why being candid with your medical team is so vital to get a treatment plan that aides with these issues.

4. Visual Issues
Sight is a very complicated sense. First you must see something with your eyes, which then gets transmitted to your brain, where it is then deciphered and made sense of - we hope. However, knowing as we do that Alzheimer’s affects the brain it is understandable that visual issues might arise. 

5. Fine Motor Skills
Going back to the basis of the disease, and the impact it has on the brain, makes each case of Alzheimer's a little bit different. Depending on where the plaque builds up and where the tangles occur, largely depends on what symptoms the sufferer experiences. 
While a loss in motor skills as the disease progresses is a very real possibility, sometimes this can also occur as a result from other symptoms being experienced. Confusion, memory loss, and visual issues can all significantly impact one's fine motor skill set. It is also for this reason and symptom that the decline that is Alzheimer’s is so difficult to bear witness too.

6. Trouble Speaking
In many ways, it can be said that those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease often revert (unwillingly of course) back to a child-like demeanor when they engage in conversation and interaction with others. Some doctors believe that this is a result of degradation to certain parts of the brain, while others believe that it is simply the affected attempt at trying to communicate, and unfortunately, like a child is often the best they can do.  You might notice that they frequently interrupt others, are unable to maintain a singular thought, cannot hold a conversation or suddenly start to talk about completely irrelevant topic. Needless to say, it requires some degree of patience to be with a person at this stage of Alzheimer’s.

Martini Ranch:

Trump has 10.5 million followers on tweeter

Screech-Owl Antics

Western Screech-Owls have been visiting my yard in Tucson during the recent heat-wave. They love the waterhole and have been using it to drink and take baths:

How many times

has an “AR-15-type assault rifle” in the hands of a "good guy" civilian stopped a mass-shooting? My guess: Zero.

My Backyard Wildlife...

makes me feel better:

Wildfire Burn Area - Birds-eye View

Last week there was a human-caused wildfire near Elgin, Arizona. Yesterday I was able to capture some aerial video of the burn site as well as areas where the aerial crew laid down fire retardant:
