On the horizon....drones, Obama’s national police force, many new IRS investigators, Homeland Security Police, HS’s purchase of over a billion rounds of ammo, Bam’s executive orders bypassing congress, appointing czars again bypassing congress, redistribution of wealth........sounds more like Zimbabwe.

CBS news commies, carrying on from their colleges and universities, to scare everyone with exaggerations and make a mess. That’s what spoiled children do.

They’ll have access to less money from the pile of debt each year for watching you. Quit buying so much. It recirculates to much debt for the gossipy, socialist hags of boisterous rags (newspapers, broadcasters of the so-called mainstream media) to grab.

As for their paradigm of spreading their hysteria like a disease, here’s the tip of my thumb on my nose with fingers spread toward them. Privacy at home for me is doable, regardless of what they do. And my private cameras will be watching them.

AS A private pilot I’m concerned with having one of these little stupids running in to me as I fly.
With an even bigger stupid running it from a black van miles away.

It will be pretty much impossible to control their private use save maybe through the civil tort liability system ("This is America. We'll sue 'ya"). As an example, historian Francis Fukuyama has gone nuts over assembly and use of his own video drones as a hobby. An anti-hunting group flew a drone over a private hunting reserve and some hunters shot it down.

It's just too easy to make and use the things, and they're lots of fun. I have a $20 Syma S107 remote-controlled toy helicopter which I harass my cats with indoors. One of my son visiting last Christmas fell in love with it, took it outside and flew it onto the roof.

The feds have been terrified since 9/11 that home hobbyists will make their own cruise missiles. IMO it's like trying to hold back an incoming tide.
