Armed Federal Police Drones in the Skies over USA

Fully armed autonomous Police Drones numbering in the tens of thousands will soon be covering the skies of every city, state, and municipality in America.

Currently, in the United States because of federal restrictions on air space, commercial use of autonomous Drones is verboten. The Federal Aviation Association, though, has announced that it plans to revisit its restrictions in the spring of 2012. That means as soon as 2013 or 2014 the skies of America will be blanketed with Armed Predator Drones spying on US citizens.

“US Law enforcement, both Federal and State, are salivating at the opportunity to get there own personal Predator Drones in the sky.   The Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), an industry group that has been lobbying the FAA to make changes to its regulations to free up air space for unmanned vehicles and allow for greater government and commercial uses of drones, key word "GOVERNMENT."

The erosion of civil liberties is reaching an alarming rate. There will be a moment of before and after, much like 1939 preWW2 Germany.  The United States of America is sliding deeper and deeper into a downward spiral which will attract great forces to come to bear.  Those forces may or may not be agents of our better Angels.  History may decide that these days of unwarrented, overt, obtrusive, omnipresent, orwellian  survaillnce were the last days of a once free republic.
