Privacy Death Stars Approved by Congress

What I can’t get my head around is what is happening in the world everyday and how the MSM and the majority just report and graze, in that order. How can our government do this to us? How do we allow it? I feel as if I am in a dream sometimes. Please check out this article. Its just one more tiny nail in the coffin of freedom that gets hammered away while we all do nothing.

Privacy Death Stars Approved By Congress

Today, it is tricky for governments and corporations to constantly spy on people using drones. By 2015, it wil be much much easier, thanks to a Monday Congressional vote authorizing drones above 400 feet, in the same airspace as commercial airliners.

At last, we can be monitored around the clock by high-altitude Privacy Death Stars.

The Senate voted 75-20 Monday to approve an aviation overhaul bill that previously cleared the House and is now headed for the president’s signature. Along with modernizing air traffic control to use GPS, it allows drones to go way up high where they can more easily loiter over and observe the highly suspect citizenry of this country. Says the Chicago Trib:

The FAA is… required under the bill to provide military, commercial and privately-owned drones with expanded access to U.S. airspace currently reserved for manned aircraft by Sept. 30, 2015. That means permitting unmanned drones controlled by remote operators on the ground to fly in the same airspace as airliners, cargo planes, business jets and private aircraft.

This opens up the possibility for an exciting LIVE version of Google Street View, as Forbes’ Kashmir Hill points out, or for that private Facebook Air Force we warned you about at the close of 2011.

As the ACLU said before passage,”This bill would push the nation willy-nilly toward an era of aerial surveillance without any steps to protect the traditional privacy that Americans have always enjoyed and expected.”

Right. That’s the point.

    The best way to expose a tyranny is to have it act like one.

    All of these expensive measures only work in this paradigm.

    Once the dollar collapses we will not be able to afford this bullshit.

      There is a lot of bullshit, Chris. And I agree with you, there won’t be enough time to spend on this kind of crappola, but they are going to hold on tight and won’t let go without a fight. Its like a frog in a pot. Its surreal that this stuff even makes it into the blogosphere without all hell breaking loose. On the bright site (as morbid as that might be), it gives those awake more time to prep. Also, it gives the “walking dead” more time as well. I can see this thing taking longer than it should, and that shall make the pain that much more intense.

    God bless the families of the guys that are manning the remote controls. Hard to do anything about something 400′ in the air. These people that participate in this tyranny will have to pay a dear price for their actions. Hack at the root! I hope many of them will wake up and work with the people. But know that the PTB will spend every last cent to maintain control over their investments, us.

    We have warned and warned of the decimation of our liberties and the push toward a police state. These warnings have been met with the manifestation of those developments we feared. And the NDAA is a sad culmination of laws long broken now legitimized. Few however, seem concerned.

    So what lies in the future of our ‘American exceptionalism’ and post 9/11 patriotic blood lust?

    There’s something solid forming in the air,
    And the wall of death is lowered in Times Square.
    No-one seems to care,
    They carry on as if nothing was there.
