WORCESTER — Military aircraft flying low over the city tonight were part of a military exercise being done by the U.S. Army, according to Maj. Emily Potter, public affairs officer.

The helicopters were landing around the Worcester Memorial Auditorium in Lincoln Square and buzzing neighborhoods, prompting many telephone calls and e-mails to the Telegram & Gazette from residents curious about what was happening.

“They are actually shaking the windows of my house,” said one emailer. “Lived here a long time and never felt anything like it.”

Conditioning you to life

in the police state.

this happened in Miami (or near Miami) not long ago--

No, I don't live there; I read about it here on DP--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I live in Hampton Roads

I live in Hampton Roads Virginia.(the cities around Norfolk for those who dont know)
It is very common to have low flying helicopters buzz past over my neighborhood, sometimes they do shake the windows. Not just military craft either, alot of private/business(or at least I assume based on how they look) as well.
I once looked up how low these things are allowed and the minimum I think was 500ft above the ground. Believe, some of them are no higher than that when they pass by.
I think someone ended up complaining though as they dont pass over nearly as much as they used to.

Think the coolest thing I have seen though was one of those large military cargo planes in a banking manuever. It was only a couple miles out.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

I feel bad for the big city, but we can't save them....

That's why most liberty minded folks evacuated and left the big cities in droves long ago. Being there is the wrong place to be.

Get the hell away from the big cities if you know what's good for you.. There is no saving the big urban cities which self-destruct.

I know this may hurt to hear, but it's even in the Bible. If you value Liberty, get to places like Montana right away. You'll be alright here.

Just another day for the war-mongering

US leadership.
