Drones = good or bad?

Wanted to share with you about these drones.









 Drones have fantastic cameras,
they can target a spot very well. It will
Save Lives.  What do you think as a woman
where these are going?? Are they Good or BAD?


some are really small.


Who can buy them?



Don't laugh, you could
watch where your children go.
That's home security right?


There is a caucus  that advocates for drones —
those pilot-less planes infamous
for their role targeting insurgents in Afghanistan
and Pakistan.
They’re used as a spy tool in Iran, a drug-fighting
tool in Mexico and an anti-smuggling tool along
the U.S.-Mexico border.
Many of the most successful drone manufacturers
are based in Southern California and
elsewhere around the southwest.
The drone caucus —
like the technology it promotes
is becoming increasingly important
in the nation’s capitol as the government
looks to unmanned vehicles to help save
money on defense, better patrol the
country’s borders and provide a new
tool to U.S. law enforcement agencies
and civilians.
“It’s definitely a powerful caucus,”
 says a company that analyzes lobbying data.
“It’s probably up there in the more powerful
caucuses that sort of is not talked about.”
And, he says, caucus members are well placed
to influence government spending and regulations.
“You have members that are tapped into sort
of key places," he said.
“You also have members who have been around
for a long time."
The caucus is co-chaired by 10-term Congressman ,
Howard McKeon a Republican from
Southern California who also chairs the 
House Armed Ser. Committee. He shares the
drone caucus chair with Democratic Congressman
Henry Cuellar from  Texas.
The caucus includes eight members who also sit on
the, House committee on appropriations which
largely controls the government’s
and Our  Tax purse strings.
Many of the drone caucus members are well
supported by the industry they endorse.
According to Bronstein-Moffly’s data,
the 58 drone caucus members
received a total of $2.3 million in contributions
from political action committees affiliated
with drone manufacturers since 2011.
Twenty-one members of the drone caucus
are from border states. These members collected
around $1 million in campaign contributions
from top drone manufacturers during the
2010 and 2012 election cycles.


It's good these companys are there to inform us.
what are your thoughts on DRONES???
 I really want to know . yvonne

The way it was

I lived here from 1965 till 1985 and moved to Deerfield Beach.
It is a fabulous island of Deco Hotels.
Miami Beach  women saved them.
It is the only strip of Deco buildings in the world.
They are all on South Beach.

My house was on Palm Island the Cruseship's were
 across  the cause way going to south beach.

I saw this and my head started to spin. My House below.
Who would have thought. It's called Foresight I guess.















This is the entrance bridge,
when I was there the post lights were antique.
They have made changes
that are very cold and modern.

this is entrance on  the Island it had a Guard on duty.
















The tennis courts were to the left of the Guard Gate.

Before the Tennis Courts, there was an old Club
there, I heard stories of the glamour it had.
I got inside once before they tore it down.


This was our home it just sold for
$2,400,000.00 I am in Shock.
I only owed $28,000 when I
got my Divorce. My Heart is broken,
who would have dreamed.


my neighbors were EM Lowe estate
Anheuser Bush estate and Al Capone's
house below with pool in back.
A few famous people not mentioned.









1940's
it was a wild place.





Then  there's the stone crabs,Yeah!!!!
Can't get them in Maine. Boy I miss them





They are wonderful.


This was the way it looked
in the 70's.
at the tip of south Beach
