It would seem that the EPA is now using drones to spy on America's cattlemen. Members of Congress from the state of Nebraska have sent a letter to the EPA with over two dozen questions regarding EPA's deployment of drones to spy on ranchers in Nebraska. The drones are supposedly unarmed, however, of much greater concern is how these drones can be used to collect information about every aspect of our lives. We know that NSA has the ability to listen in on whispered telephone conversations from 22,000 miles up in space. Some time ago I recall reading that police departments are now beginning to obtain radar which can penetrate our homes. If state and local police are able to obtain this radar technology imagine what the Feds can do with these drones. Perhaps the most frightening thing about these drones is that once having deployed them, arming them is only a very short step away. I am by no means a historian, but I am an avid history buff and I cannot recall a previous time in our history when the federal government has deployed such military grade hardware against the civilian population. Upon further consideration I would imagine that this should really not come as a surprise since even if one were to take the marxist/socialist/progressive usurper out of the equation the vast majority of our federal bureaucracy are of the same ilk as the usurper. I would hope that some Nebraska cattleman would spot one of these things flying too low and shoot it down. Were that to happen he would be a national hero although the feds would probably try to charge him with something. The bottom line is that we are much further along the road to a police state than any of us might have imagined.
