Pentagon plans blimp to spy from new heights

Reporting from Washington -- The Pentagon said Thursday that it intends to spend $400 million to develop a giant dirigible that will float 65,000 feet above the Earth for 10 years, providing unblinking and intricate radar surveillance of the vehicles, planes and even people below.

Ewww...

Can we please stop finding new ways to spy on each other?

Don't WE - the ones who are spied on -
get to decide whether or not they should continue spying on us?

Am I out a line here - or does this government just keep getting creepier?
Stop with the gadgets that take away our freedom - dammit.

No your not. But the big guy on the block who is acting as world police (bully in some instances) feels it has the right to do this if it is going to fight the world's battles (as they see it). But really, I am sure they will even look down on their own people too with ever tell us.

I am finding this very weird. I dont get into too the talks about what the gov. is doing....but I feel strange about this one.

I saw a cigar shaped object a couple summers back, it was very large and silvery. I get the same weird feeling I had when I saw that when I think about this topic.

What I saw was thick, not thin like a cigar per say....a huge blimp, but really long, would set the shape for what I saw. IDK, mabey just weird vibes due to being tired. Going to bed...
