    It appears that the FAA will have to lay down groundwork for allowing drones to fly in US airspace. Not only will police use rise but private companies maybe allowed to fly drones to do aerial mapping and maybe surveillance. Need to know what the wife or husband is doing, have a PI use his drone to follow them, although a GPS tag under the bumper would be cheaper, with the drone you have video and possibly audio. So if you are laying out in your backyard, ladies, and you take that top off for a little tan someone may be watching you. And they do not even need a warrant!

    FAA told to make room for drones in U.S. skies

    On another front, farm tractors are starting to be turned into drones.

    The automation and mechanization of the growing police state is inevitable.

    Drones will merely be the most visible aspect of that.

    Why?

    Because while MASTERS are inevitably going to be screwing every increasing percentages of the population, as increasingly human labor becomes less and less economically viable in this brave new world order, it will be harder and harder for the masters to really trust other working class human beings (read cops and military personel) to repress the mass to maintain order.

    Robo-cop isn't going to be just science fiction much longer kiddies.

    Yep, we are so worried about which party is to blame for the conditions today, that we don't see that both parties have the same agenda.

    I think its about time we stopped using the Department of Defense to arm local police departments.
