The Buzz Over Your Head May Not Be a Bee
I’m soon going to begin a series of blogs that are my own observations of how the government has begun to implement such a vast number of actions to observe and track us, implant chiops in us, influence us, lie to us, tell us what to eat, how we must make vehicles, what energy we are allowed to use, how our schools must teach and what, on and on. The following is a good example, allowing lightly or uncontrolled observation of you and what you are doing. It’s already happening.
Judge Andrew Napolitano has warned Congress not to act “like potted plants” regarding the increased use of unmanned surveillance drones without warrants over US skies by military, government, and law enforcement agencies.
Echoing the recent comments of his Fox News colleague Charles Krauthammer, Napolitano also said that “The first American patriot that shoots down one of these drones that comes too close to his children in his backyard will be an American hero.”
The federal government is rolling out new rules on the use of the unmanned drones this week, with the Federal Aviation Administration announcing procedures will “streamline” the process through which government agencies, including local law enforcement, receive licenses to operate the aircraft.
Privacy advocates have warned that the FAA has not acted to establish any privacy safeguards whatsoever, and that congress is not holding the agency to account.
