    I live near an airbase. They probably could have seen me halve naked. But my neighbors also did. And I’m going to do 60 laps tomorrow morning.. so -all those horny old women-  the pool attendant also see me halve naked. All my privacy.. gone.

    This is not a drone.  Drones are killing machines.  This is a remote controlled airplane with a camera.  People have been using them for decades and never needed the government’s approval to do so.  It’s just another case of big brother butting in where he is not needed and without justification.

    Oh yeah…. drones to inspect the pipeline. Sounds great until it malfunctions, crashes into the pipeline, and devastates the environment again. 
    Wonderful idea. Inspecting the condition of the pipeline can be so tedious..

    So… when one of these large toys brings down a commercial airliner by accident, is BP going to pay or sue?

    Taking your rights one drone at a time.

    What’s messed up is that they say drones will never be used to target American citizens on American soil. And people still wanna live in the matrix and believe what their these wolves in sheep clothing is telling them? Wake up sheeples, time to believe every lie again
