    But it could never happen here right? Well, guess again. It's here. I guess it wasn't all just 'crazy paranoia' after all. Big Brother will be employing the use of Thousands of Surveillance Drones on the American People. Interesting because I actually remember a time when most would just laugh at and ridicule those who said the U.S. Government would use these Drones to spy on their own People. Well i assure you, it's nothing to laugh at. Enjoy America.


    Look! Up in the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It’s … a drone, and it’s watching you. That’s what privacy advocates fear from a bill Congress passed this week to make it easier for the government to fly unmanned spy planes in U.S. airspace.

    The FAA Reauthorization Act, which President Obama is expected to sign, also orders the Federal Aviation Administration to develop regulations for the testing and licensing of commercial drones by 2015.

    Privacy advocates say the measure will lead to widespread use of drones for electronic surveillance by police agencies across the country and eventually by private companies as well.

    “There are serious policy questions on the horizon about privacy and surveillance, by both government agencies and commercial entities,” said Steven Aftergood, who heads the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists.

    The Electronic Frontier Foundation also is “concerned about the implications for surveillance by government agencies,” said attorney Jennifer Lynch.

    The provision in the legislation is the fruit of “a huge push by lawmakers and the defense sector to expand the use of drones” in American airspace, she added.

    According to some estimates, the commercial drone market in the United States could be worth hundreds of millions of dollars once the FAA clears their use.

    The agency projects that 30,000 drones could be in the nation’s skies by 2020.

    It's no 'Crazy Paranoid Conspiracy' people. The Drones are watching, and those 'Black Helicopters' are too.

    George Orwell was ahead of his time. With the constant improvement of technology this was pretty much inevitable.

    Yes, he sure was. Most of the things most claimed could never happen here, are now happening. Yet so many stay silent or even cheer Big Brother on. It's so sad.
