    The Teflon Don comes to mind for some reason. Although I seriously doubt Obama is much of an avid skeet shooter, it does fit his incessant campaign image that his staff maintains so diligently. The drones? G.W. kicked it off and as with so many of his other legacies, O has ramped up the practice and seems to continue the practice with abandon. I hate the use of these things period, whether it’s in the middle east killing people or just the “eyes in the sky” for the government to watch us.

    There have been “eyes in the sky” watching us for over 50 years now. How do you think that Google get maps that are capable of seeing the US so closely? They certainly are not using military drones to do so!

    So, even non military spy satellites are capable of spying on us, but we know that the military has satellites that are orders of magnitude greater than anything that the private sector has to offer.

    If you are not doing anything illegal or harmful to your fellow citizens of the US, then why even worry about it?

    By the way, I will start to worry about the military use of drones over the US when they start actually killing people by arming these drones.

    But, does anybody with any kind of intelligence think that our government of either political persuasion could get away with actually using military style drones to take out American citizens without it even being noticed?

    This would be even more impossible in an information age, where it seems that every little thing that can be filmed and recorded ends up on youtube!

    The problem arises when what is legal has nothing at all to do with what is harmful.
    .
    There are enough laws on the books to arrest anyone anywhere at anytime.
    This is deliberate.

    Do you have any information on how big surveillance drones are?
    The TV show NOVA implied that some are the size of a platter.
    I know the killer ones are the size of a pickup, but cameras and batteries have been miniturized so much I wonder how big a drone has to be if it doesn’t carry a weapon?

    This is an amazing link to a fascinating video of all sizes of drones.

    This is a link to a Google search that came up with all kinds of neat websites and videos.

    Satellites provide extremely detailed images today, but drones provide more “real time” immediacy on a smaller scale or area. Satellites with laser capability, as weapons, aren’t really out of the realm of reality either, such as reflectors for particle beam weapons.


    I’m a lot more fearful of a “right wing” government, than “liberal”, but as neither side tells their corporate “guides” to “buzz off”, it is the corporations I fear more, as THEY are in way too much control. Think how many corporate trained and operated armies are “out there”, and right here at home.


    Nope, a president, or even a known “shoot your buddy” vice, aren’t as dangerous as the growth of power in CEOs.
