Thanks. Only those two? How widespread is this among the so-called Right? Left? Which ideology likes a big, invasive govt? Should one generalize from the predilections of a few?

As disturbing as drones are, I am more concerned about the widespread surveillance society we are already steeped in. All those in favor of big gov surveillance in all its forms, please raise your right hands.

Global Surceillance? you're Living in It.

I expect the public to accept the use of domestic drones more once the use of drones is incorporated more into the sheeples tv shows.

TV has dramatically helped to alter what is acceptable and not to the populace. A cursory view of today's cop drama shows incorporate illegally breaking into houses, torturing the accused, planting evidence, searches without warrants and other abused by Gov't.

Some might think this is merely good drama, but it does serve to obscure the lines of Constitutional protections and rights.

By in large I suspect domestic drones are not ok by the 'right'. Not by grounds of personal privacy and such, but merely because Obama is in the WH. What is acceptable or not is often skewed by who is in charge and what political party is in power.
