Police State Drones Over US Skies

This isn't America.

There are certain risks that come with freedom. As someone said on Twitter the other day, Patrick Henry didn't say "Give me security, or give me death"; he said "Give me liberty, or give me death." That one reason why, for example, TSA airport body rubdowns and nude-o-scope scans are wrong.

Keep in mind all this starts with Obama. Obama could pick up the phone tomorrow and put an end to it. But it's what he wants.

As Charles Krauthammer said on Special Report this evening, drones are instruments of war. They're not to be used in the United States. There should be an outright ban on them.
