What a shocker! Who'd have thunk it! The scary thing is how cheap the US Congress is getting. For only $280,000 of drone industry lobby money, Congress gave them the green light for anyone to buy a drone. Just like the war on drugs and the associated industry of keeping people incarcerated, drones over the US are nothing but money and power.

For a mere $280,000, spread across an unknown number of eager congressmen, the Drone Industry has bought a law allowing anyone in the United States, including cops, to buy and use ... drones

The Drone Industry has been caught bragging that it co-authored the amendment. Says a leaked industry slide presentation: "Our suggestions were often taken word-for-word."


Nothing short of another revolution will stop the corruption in this country, I'm afraid. Drones arne't going to make us safer. They will, however, make a select few very rich and allow police and government agencies to take away more freedom. Just like 1984 proved, technology in many ways is a HUGE step BACKWARDS in human history because it will always be used to control people.

This legislation opens the doors, not just for government use of drones, but for PRIVATE use of drones.

I can see it now, the new Apple I-Drone. Spy on anyone you wish with this new app...

It's amazing how our 'representatives' take to 'representing'' "us."

Oh wait, I'm sorry.... money = free speech and corporations = people..... my bad...

Not being rich or incorporated makes any human citizen second-class..... thanks Dems and Repubs for all your "support."

This appears to be another case of legalized domestic spying gone haywire.

If there was a genuine "security" threat, the lobbyists would not have been necessary to get the law passed.

And again, the middle class will pay for this as usual.

This legislation does not have a positive impact on the majority of American citizens.

It must be the security/industrial/banker complex at work.

I wonder how many video tapes will be kept on file ?

What was taxpayer expense to pass the law ?
