By the same logic, since Google Maps updates its pictures periodically, it would be no problem if they put webcams in front of everyone’s houses then.

We are on the same side. Both your responses are comparing apples and oranges, though. You both cite instances where the government is being intrusive (CCTV on individual dwellings, and unwarranted, illegal phone taps of private citizens) which we can all agree can not be tolerated.

The only way your arguments hold water is if you are saying that simply flying UAVs over US soil, which is already happening, equates to the government snooping on US citizens without cause.

The government has over stepped its bounds on so many issues, including unwarranted surveillance. Picking this issue to get upset about strikes me a a little off base. You want to get upset about something, how about the arming of LEOs with military grade gear (like those jack asses at Red Jacket Firearms do on a regular basis and any number of state and local entities) and tactics? How about obama’s recent coup of getting Congress to authorize the detention of US citizens without due process. Or, how about DHS, and state agencies categorizing people like us as potential terrorists, simply because we hold conservative views on tax law and the 10th amendment.

Pick battles where your uniform won’t consist of a tin foil hat, lest we loose the war.
