Everybody must get droned!

Domestic Drones. It seems that domestic drones are coming to your neighborhood soon. Armed or only to spy on you? Well, unarmed at first and just spying on you no doubt but will it even stop there?

To update Bob Dylan a bit:

They’ll drone you when you’re trying to be so good
They’ll drone you just like they said they would
They’ll drone you when you’re trying to go home
They’ll drone you when you’re there all alone
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get droned

They’ll drone you when you’re walking on the street
They’ll drone you when you’re trying to keep your seat
They’ll drone you when your walking on the floor
They’ll drone you when your walking to the door
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get droned

They’ll drone you when you’re at the breakfast table
They’ll drone you when you are young and able
They’ll drone you when you’re trying to make a buck
They’ll drone you and then they’ll say good luck
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get droned

Well They’ll drone you and say that it’s the end
They’ll drone you and then they’ll come back again
They’ll drone you when you’re riding in your car
They’ll drone you when you’re playing you guitar
Yes But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get droned
Alright

Well They’ll drone you when you are all alone
They’ll drone you when you are walking home
They’ll drone you and then say they’re all brave
They’ll drone you when you’re send down in your grave
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get droned

The New York Times posted an editorial that says it’s not a matter of if, but when, the US sees drones in the skies over home sweet home to watch people and their every action. George Orwell call your office!

Congress has ordered the Federal Aviation Administration to quickly select six domestic sites to test the safety of drones, which can vary in size from remote-controlled planes as big as jetliners to camera-toting hoverers called Nano Hummingbirds that weigh 19 grams.

The drone go-ahead, signed in February by President Obama in the F.A.A. reauthorization law, envisions a $5 billion-plus industry of camera drones being used for all sorts of purposes from real estate advertising to crop dusting to environmental monitoring and police work.

There are, no doubt, some potentially excellent uses for drones like, for example, a search and rescue mission to find people lost in the woods since drones would extend our abilities to see over vast stretches of terrain. That is just one example, and I bet you can think of several more off the top of your head. I can. But there are potential uses for drones that are far less savory. Law enforcement surveillance of the entire population and killing from the sky comes to mind.

The government is going to tell us that only those good uses for the drones will happen and that those bad uses will never be allowed. Believe that? If so, there are people selling bridges on-line that you should be contacting to make an investment. But the government types and their sycophants in the media will claim the nation’s laws will constrain drone use to proposes that are innocent and proper; and with that, those people inclined to believe that sort of nonsense will sigh in relief. But coming soon will be a situation where the cops save someone, held hostage perhaps, by killing criminals from the air and the people will all cheer. Then they will kill dangerous criminals from the air and no one is saved but a “bad guy” was taken out. Then drones will just be part of the SWAT team’s normal gear. Drones will become a part of normal life just as SWAT teams have become a part of everyday life.

I think it will go something like this: at first the drones will only called upon for the most extreme and dangerous of situations, but soon they will be used to attack some poor sod who someone alleges is smoking a little pot. That drones no doubt will serve some extremely useful and socially acceptable purposes is not in question. The question is how long it will take the uniformed goons in our police state to misuse them.

The drone issue is in addition to the government’s collection of every piece of electronic data on you already, and that includes e-mail and much more. They know you better than you know yourself. In the end, you will have no privacy anyplace on in this country. Meditate on that for a while before you cheer the use of drones to control the masses.
