Yesterday, on April 26, 2012, I was flying from New York to Florida. I always like to get a window seat so I can watch the “action.” It was a very uneventful flight, calm smooth skies; just the way you want a flight to be. Periodically, I looked out the window to see if I could recognize any landmarks and to watch the planes heading in the opposite direction. About 2 hours into the flight, near the Georgia-South Carolina border, I look out my window, and there’s a predator drone, presumably unarmed. At least I didn’t see any missiles, but that’s probably next!
We are now living in the surveillance state. Inevitably, the surveillance state becomes the police state, where you can be detained without any probable cause that you’ve committed a criminal act. We’ve been losing our freedoms for the past 100 years and now the pace is accelerating. Think about that when you tuck your child in at night!
