Drones Over U.S. Get OK by Congress:

(Shaun WatermanWashington Times) Look! Up in the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It’s … a drone, and it’s watching you. That’s what privacy advocates fear from a bill Congress passed this week to make it easier for the government to fly unmanned spy planes in U.S. airspace.

The FAA Reauthorization Act, which President Obama is expected to sign, also orders the Federal Aviation Administration to develop regulations for the testing and licensing of commercial drones by 2015.

Privacy advocates say the measure will lead to widespread use of drones for electronic surveillance by police agencies across the country and eventually by private companies as well.

My Commentary: Under the Congress-approved “FAA Reauthorization Bill,” the FAA “projects that 30,000 drones could be in the nation’s skies by 2020,” because “the legislation would order the FAA, before the end of the year, to expedite the process through which it authorizes the use of drones by federal, state and local police and other agencies.”

Great! Domestic drone surveillance is EXACTLY what our brutal, over-militarized American police force needs! Now, we’ll all FINALLY be safe! ::whew!::

Police Serve the State, Not the Tax-Payers

Peace Officer Versus Police Officer

Peace Officer Versus Police Officer

Why Fearing the Police Is Not Irrational:
http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig10/cohoon1.html

(Brian CohoonLewRockwell.com) – There was a day in America when we, the people, had great respect for the police. When they would ask you how you are doing, they sincerely wanted to know because they cared. That day has passed with barely a whisper or complaint. Today when a cop (they prefer to be called Police Officers, as they feel “cop” is somewhat derogatory) asks you how you are, they are not doing it because they care but rather to set you at ease so you feel that their follow-up questions are friendly and benign. Since for most of us, our likely contact with the police is during a traffic stop (this is actually an arrest. If you do not believe this, try and leave the scene of the top, or not stop in the first place), and the follow-up questions inevitably will be:

  1. Where are you coming from (sic)?
  2. Where are you going?
  3. What are you doing?
  4. Do you have anything illegal in your possession?

My Commentary: It is the job of cops to intimidate you into incriminating yourself. So long as they can pretend a crime was committed, they are ensuring their own future job security. It is a glaring conflict of interest! And, they love to nab people for victim-free “offenses.” This type of busy-work keeps them from having to deal with real criminals, and situations that could potentially put their lives in real danger. Remember, the Prison Industrial Complex is mostly privatized now. Convicts in private prisons can be put to work for 25 cents an hour or less. So, it makes sense to fill jails with productive, functional citizens, rather than dysfunctional, violent offenders. They make much better SLAVE LABORERS! Research it! The same companies who own prisons lobbied for (and won) mandatory drug sentencing, and the “three-strikes” rule. No one should be accountable for failing to follow man-made laws! They are so unfair that they aren’t even clearly posted, and require no victim in order to be broken! The whole thing is a RACKET!

Discussing the Desire to Rise Against the Tyranny of the American Police State

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “Rise Against the Tyranny of the American Police State!“…

Rayn: I am sickened by the AMERICAN POLICE STATE. When will we RISE AGAINST the TYRANNY of EVIL, LYING, ABUSIVE, POWER-HUNGRY, JUSTICE-PERVERTING COPS? These COWARDLY, MURDEROUS, HIRED THUGS bring SHAME to what should be an HONORABLE PROFESSION! They are TOO WEAK-WILLED and MORALLY-COMPROMISED to “SERVE & PROTECT” the PEOPLE. The “PEACE OFFICER” has morphed into the “LAW ENFORCEMENT” CHARLATAN, who believes he is a JUDGE!

We must expose these cowardly frauds to full public scrutiny, or they will continue to commit human rights violations under the guise of “fighting crime.”

Keith: Make a Website about them! And give all the pig’s Rabies!!!!

Rayn: Euthanization would be much more effective long term solution, but I digress. I’m way ahead of you on the website concept. I’m already in the process of compiling data and evidence. There is NO VALOR or HONOR in these COWARDS, THIEVES and FREEDOM-HATERS. Their MAN-MADE RULES and REGULATIONS have BETRAYED us!

Sara: Welcome back to Essex County, where a PIG can be a PIG.

Rayn: Yes. These filthy swine pollute the streets of America with the corruption of their lies, prejudice, brutality, and injustice.

Keith M.: Still Sickened By This!
