    There have been rumors of the EPA using drones to photograph farms looking for evidence of water pollution. Is it any surprise the rumors turn out to be false.

    The only truth to the rumors is that the EPA does use planes to conduct inspections because the cost is lower than sending teams on the ground to do the same work. Farmers are still worried that big guvment is taking photos for its files.

    A former neighbor of mine chimed in on this meme on his Facebook page. The funny thing is he's against all the survelliance, but guess where he works?

    Yep, the Department of Homeland Security.
  3. I'm shocked -- shocked! -- to hear that Fox News and GOP congressmen spread the lie without checking it out. :eek:

    That's just silly.

    Everyone knows the drones are being used to catalogue what guns each American owns so that Obama can confiscate them in his second term.

    Farmers are safe for now. Skiers, not so much.

    Fuck, missed! Reminds me of the old golf joke that even God can't hit a one iron.
