    Florida man lands gyrocopter on Capitol lawn
    [​IMG]

    Florida resident Doug Hughes flew his gyrocopter to Washington, D.C. and landed it on the Capitol lawn on April 15, 2015, to bring attention to the issue of campaign finance reform.
    • "I'm demanding reform and declaring a voter's rebellion in a manner consistent with Jefferson's description of rights in the Declaration of Independence," Hughes wrote. "As a member of Congress, you have three options. 1. You may pretend corruption does not exist. 2. You may pretend to oppose corruption while you sabotage reform. 3. You may actively participate in real reform."

    • Hughes told the Times that the U.S. Secret Service questioned him last year about his plans. Even so, he was willing to violate the law and fly his vehicle to the Capitol for his cause.

      "I don't believe that the authorities are going to shoot down a 61-year-old mailman in a flying bicycle," he said. "I don't have any defense, okay, but I don't believe that anybody wants to personally take responsibility for the fallout."

    I'd like to bring attention to a Secret Service agent 'accidentally' confusing his tazer with a gun

    I agree. I guess we are just supposed to take everyone's word for it that they don't mean any harm when they land on the Capitol lawn?

    I always thought the secret service was an elite security group, seems like their as bad as the fumbling cops in the news these days.

    Hopefully, he dropped some of his prize snakes on a few congressional types before landing.

    Has a single person been fired during two terms of the Obama Administration?

    The mailman is correct about one thing: our campaign finance checks/balances are currently a joke.

    A foreign government can easily buy the US Presidency at this point.

    You'd think this would happen, but it looks like it doesn't.

    i think we all know way. standards have been lowered in order to have some % of diversity. the SS WERE an elite group.
    as much as i despise obama, i certainly don't want anything to happen to him.

    the house of reps and senate? i don't give a shit about them. this moron displayed a lot of courage....very misdirected and pretty much worthless.
