Whoo boy, if this wasn’t so funny I would cry.
Now that our fearless leader has come out and said he can order American citizens snuffed out like calling Domino’s pizza, on top of all of the other lawless bullshit our government pulls, we now have to start worrying about weaponized drones flying around looking for something to do here in U.S. airspace.
As part of the enterprenarial spirit, some outfit is selling a fucking toy drone to kids.
You know, just to prepare them for the facts of life in the future.
There is an ad on Amazon for one of these damn things that deserves your immediate attention, just for the product review comments.
I have to give some of these people credit, there are a few out there who seem to be paying attention to what is going on around here after all.
You’ve had a busy play day – You’ve wiretapped Mom’s cell phone and e-mail without a warrant, you’ve indefinitely detained your little brother Timmy in the linen closet without trial, and you’ve confiscated all the Super-Soakers from the neighborhood children (after all, why does any kid – besides you, of course – even NEED a Super-Soaker for self-defense? A regular water pistol should be enough). What do you do for an encore?
That’s where the US Air Force Medium Altitude, Long Endurance, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) RQ-1 Predator from Maisto comes in. Let’s say that Dad has been labeled a terrorist in secret through your disposition matrix. Rather than just arrest him and go through the hassle of trying and convicting him in a court of law, and having to fool with all those terrorist-loving Constitutional protections, you can just use one of these flying death robots to assassinate him! Remember, due process and oversight are for sissies. Plus, you get the added bonus of taking out potential terrorists before they’ve even done anything – estimates have determined that you can kill up to 49 potential future terrorists of any age for every confirmed terrorist you kill, and with the innovative ‘double-tap’ option, you can even kill a few terrorist first responders, preventing them from committing terrorist acts like helping the wounded and rescuing survivors trapped in the rubble. Don’t let Dad get away with anti-American activities! Show him who’s boss, whether he’s at a wedding, a funeral, or just having his morning coffee. Sow fear and carnage in your wake! Win a Nobel Peace Prize and be declared Time Magazine’s Person of the Year – Twice!
This goes well with the Maisto Extraordinary Rendition playset, by the way – which gives you all the tools you need to kidnap the family pet and take him for interrogation at a neighbor’s house, where the rules of the Geneva Convention may not apply. Loads of fun!
This is an awesome toy! I can’t wait to get the accessories.
I’ve put the houses of government accessory down for back-order. It comes with congressional inaction figures, and a presidential printing press so you can print your own money. It apparently sold out during the last election.
With each purchase comes an actual military drone Distinguished Warfare Medal. This medal outranks the bronze star with valor and you don’t even have to get near enemy forces! Never before can you become a decorated pilot without leaving the office. So limber up that joystick hand and earn that bling.
There are some real beauties waiting for your perusal.
Go spend a few minutes laughing at the clever way some folks are voicing their displeasure with government policy vicariously through these “reviews”.
H/T My good friend Suzanne.
That woman has a wicked sense of humor, I’m tellin’ ya.
