Patriots, mark your targets.

There are at least 63 active drone sites around the U.S, federal authorities have been forced to reveal following a landmark Freedom of Information lawsuit.
The unmanned planes – some of which may have been designed to kill terror suspects – are being launched from locations in 20 states.
Most of the active drones are deployed from military installations, enforcement agencies and border patrol teams, according to the Federal Aviation Authority.
But, astonishingly, 19 universities and colleges are also registered as owners of what are officially known as unmanned aerial vehicles.
It is thought that many of institutions, which include Cornell, the University of Colorado, Georgia Tech, and Eastern Gateway Community College, are developing drone technology.

You've got to hit the link and go to the site, there ain't no fucking way in hell that I can do the article justice. There are several maps there showing different regions of the country and Canada where these launch sites are located.

And then I want all the motherfuckers that said I was full of shit a few months back when I posted that we could look forward to thousands of drones overflying us to kiss my fucking ass. It's already happening. They may be smaller than what the military uses when they invade other sovereign nation's airspace and they may be unarmed, but they can still do us damage and they're still invading my fucking privacy. On the plus side, they don't look like all of them are capable of high speed or altitude, making them easier to bring down if you're having a bad day or a toothache.
Thanks to Sammy for being on his toes and passing this on to us.
