ATTACK OF THE DRONES IN KANSAS!!!



Kansas will soon see a spike in surveillance tech and lawmakers are hoping to speed things along.

Check it:

Kansas State University is part of a team of three universities and multiple businesses vying to be picked by the Federal Aviation Administration as one of six test site for drones.

Of course, spying is always good for business:

Drone industry predicts explosive economic boost

The money quote . . .

"Private-sector drones — also called unmanned aerial systems or UAVs — will create more than 70,000 jobs within three years and will pump more than $82 billion into the U.S. economy by 2025, according to a major new study commissioned by the industry’s leading trade group."

And so . . .

Like it or not, the same tech used to kill the terrorists will now be hovering over American skies and even more people wearing tin foil hats might be getting a bit of credence when they remind us that this fact of life might have been the goal in the first place.

KC is full of litter and the problem's getting worse. Don't believe it? Look in Brsuh Creek east of Paseo. Start "Keep Kansas City Beautiful" again.

We'll manufacture water boarding tables if it'll help the local economy!

Isn't that the same argument they're making for question 3? Let Kansas City subsidize nukes and the economy will grow?

Kind of short-sighted if you ask me.

70,000 jobs, $82 billion dollars. Bullshit.

What about the economic development grants and incentives for that new food ingredient corporation? They haven't announced anything official yet but supposed to be big dollars for lots of jobs. Big fight to win the plant location.

Supposed to be something to do with synthetic algae for food and ethanol. Soylent LLC or something like that?

OK So we just spent decades flying drones, but we need to waste tax payer money and test them now? Bullshit!

At a certain point you have to stop guarding the guards.

I'm confued, the prez said the war on terror was over. In fact, he blamed Bengazi on a video. When was the last terror attact let alone on US soil. So why do we now need drones on US soil? Maybe for unarmed US citizens?
