capecodonline.com – Joint Base Cape Cod was selected by the Federal Aviation Administration as one of six test sites across the country to integrate drones into the nation’s airspace for commercial use, Michael Huerta, the agency’s top administrator said today in a conference call with reporters.
The highly anticipated decision could mean upwards of 1,000 new jobs in Massachusetts, many of them here on Cape Cod, and an annual economic impact of $385 million, officials told the Times earlier this month.
First things first. Otis is now called Joint Base Cape Cod? I didn’t get the memo on this and frankly I’m not too sure I’m on board with the name change. It sounds like one of Delahunt’s proposed marijuana dispensaries to me. Anyway, that’s not really the point, let’s get to the real meat of this story.
I don’t give a shit what “commercial use” they say these drones are for, I am calling for a preemptive strike. This is for all you hunters out there. When you see a drone flying above The Cape, shoot it. Shoot it dead and bury it in concrete. Drones are for use in dangerous airspace over Pakistan, not fighting sea gulls for airspace over the dunes of The Cape. We’ve all seen the Terminator series so why would we even go there.
Humans have a nice comfortable spot at the top of the food chain. I enjoy walking down the street without fear of being mauled to death by a predator don’t you? Why on earth would we build things that can potentially remove us from the top spot? You know why we don’t live in the ocean? Or the Serengeti? Because it lessens our chances of instant unsolicited death. But now we want to add the possibility of autonomous death lasers shooting out of the sky while we are food shopping and banking and shit? No thanks, I’ll stick to the occasional black ice as my most feared mortal enemy.
