    And the NWO Globalist cretins rejoice. All Hail Big Brother!!

    At his panel’s Thursday hearing, McCaul showed a map of the United States with markers indicating the locations where--as of April--government entities had been approved by the FAA to fly drones.

    “The number of recipients since that time has increased,” McCaul noted.

    GAO testified that the FAA’s long-term goal is to permit drones to operate in U.S. airspace “to the greatest extent possible.”

    The proliferation of domestic drones, GAO said, raises a number of issues, the first of which is the right to privacy.

    This one will likely fly under the radar in Dumbed-Down America. Cause, didn't that guy put a dog on the roof of his car one time? And didn't that other guy eat dogs? That's the important stuff the Sheeple care about. Man, what a mess.

    Next try and scare us with claims that the next logical step is that they are going to put Hellfire missiles on the domestic drones for use on ememies of the State.

    Americans would rather watch Entertainment Tonight or Dancing with the Has Beens than be knowledgeable if what is going on in government...things that actually affect their lives.

    I would think my fenced in backyard would qualify under this:
    Amendment IV

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
