"You're Gonna Feel It..."

And not in a good way. Our culture gets more Orwellian by the day, folks! All I can say is, pay attention. This is not what a free society looks like, and this is not how (allegedly) democratic governments treat their citizens. Who are these gruesome gadgets for, these weapons which we paid for with our tax dollars? They're for us - they've been developed to use on us.

From Common Dreams:

The U.S. military has unveiled its newest approach to crowd control, the Active Denial System, a heat ray that sends out a high-frequency electromagnetic ray. People hit with the ray feel an intense, unbearable heat. The military touts the ray's "far-ranging" capabilities and is looking at "many different applications" for its possible use.

Marine Col. Tracy Taffola said at the public unveiling of the system at a U.S. Marines base near Washington, D.C.: "You're not gonna see it, you're not gonna hear it, you're not gonna smell it: you're gonna feel it."

In a video to demonstrate the new weapon, USFORCESTV explains that the heat ray "boasts a reach far beyond any other non-lethal system" -- a reach of "about 7 footballs fields."

Things are getting more Star Wars-like, aren't they? "Ray-guns" that shoot the length of several football fields and burn and disperse crowds, or worse, permanently maim or kill.

I wonder whether UC-Davis police officer John Pike will get first crack at using one of these? (I also wonder whether the concentrated and intense heat will permanently melt contact lenses to the cornea?)

As economic conditions continue to deteriorate, and mass movements of people protest in defense of the little they have left, I suspect we'll see these things rolled onto every street corner in Washington.

Who makes these things? I don't recall reading that.

Can't wait for the 'portables" to show up on each and every Cop!

Tasers? Sooo passé!

Now they can pull you over from 2000 feet.

(Husband )driver,"Gee Hon, it's really hot in the car!
(Wife) passenger (because women/mothers don't drive in family car commercials) "Well, dear, You did go 2 mph over the speed limit and coast through that stop sign! I TOLD you they were gonna get you!"

Officer,"I thought the blah guy running down the street had a gun. Sorry about heating your kids and dogs ma'am!"

So, FT, I guess what you're sayin' is that speeding soccer-moms may soon be complaining about the apparent early onset of menopausal hot flashes, and global "climate change" will ultimately be the fault of Occupy Wall Street protesters? ;-)

Gee, the former will be a bonus day for Big Pharma, and the latter a convenient scapegoat and justification for the continuing release of hothouse gases into the atmosphere.

I can see the spin-doctors at work already.
