Re: Bill intriduced in House to stop drone surveillance in America!
I already tried writing my Congress critters. They don't give a shit what I think.

Hence Bank Bailouts and Obama/Romney Care.

So why would I put a target on my back as someone who was afraid of drone surveillance? They would say I had something to hide.

It's all a freaking game and I ain't playin no more.

Don't give up, every little bit helps. I wrote mine dozens of times before I started getting personal responses. You have to let them know you are watching what they do. If they think you don't care, they will just keep lining their own pockets. I write Washington at least twice a month.

I could care less about getting a personal response from Mitch McConnell about any damn thing.

Personal response or not, they have no way to know what you think if you don't tell them. Obviously, they do not read most of their mail themselves. But, the people that do read it keep them informed about what their constituents are saying. Silence on your part equals tyranny on their part. If you don't speak up, they can justify their own personal agenda (even if it is only in their sick little minds).
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

Re: Bill intriduced in House to stop drone surveillance in America!
More fucking tax money put to waste by these Stupid Republicans. The military corporation basically buys out a Politicians (Mostly Republican) and in return, these Republicans give these Corporation the govt contract they always wanted.

And what do we tax payers pay for? Billions of dollars wasted in stupid remote control planes that fly in circles.

More money for them, more bending over for us.

Funny how these idiots cry about Govt spending. But they just wasted TRILLIONS of dollars to have these stupid toys fly in circles.

Govt as it stand is really us paying taxes to fund their hobbies.

Trip to Mars, GSA conventions, drones, wars, NASA, etc.

All the while there isn't enough money to cover your medicare or social security.

So today are you an adult or will adult reality hit you when you are laying in a bed suffering because medicare won't cover pain meds?

It isn't going to get any better if "We the People" don't get involved.

You didn't even type it correctly that time.

I think that means you need to find a new phrase that isn't stupid.

Re: Bill intriduced in House to stop drone surveillance in America!
I just got this letter from my rep. in DC. Surpisingly, it seems she paid attention to what I wrote her several times. Everyone should write their reps and senators to support this bill.

WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo) joined 22 of her colleagues in introducing H.R. 6199, the Preserving American Privacy Act, which is designed to protect individual citizens’ privacy from the increasing domestic use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), or drones. Already deployed on the battlefield and along our nation’s borders, drones are now being used domestically by private and governmental entities. H.R. 6199 would: prohibit drone surveillance without a warrant; prohibit drone surveillance by private entities without the subject’s consent; and, prohibit agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency from using drone-collected surveillance in administrative hearings.



“This is another instance of new technology challenging our constitutional rights, and the Constitution should always win,” Rep. Lummis said. “Drones are and will continue to be a great tool for our military and Border Patrol. But drones also dramatically enhance the government’s ability to spy on Americans, so we need to set a privacy standard to prevent unauthorized drone flights over our backyards. H.R. 6199 strikes a balance between law enforcement and individual freedom that I believe is consistent with the Constitution.”



The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) currently grants permits for limited drone use on a case-by-case basis. Numerous domestic federal agencies (including the EPA), research institutions and state and local law enforcement currently have active permits. The FAA is also working towards the wholesale integration of drones into United States airspace by 2015.



The Preserving American Privacy Act would:



• Prohibit the FAA from issuing a drone permit for law enforcement or surveillance purposes unless the activity is pursuant to a warrant and in the investigation of a felony. This prohibition would be applicable to State, Federal, and local jurisdictions.

• Prohibit the FAA from issuing a drone permit to any private individual for person or property surveillance unless the person under surveillance has consented or the owner of the property has consented.

• Prohibit evidence obtained by drones from being used by federal agencies in administrative hearings.

• Preserve the current use of drones for border security purposes and within 25 miles of a United States border.



Sincerely,



Cynthia M. Lummis

Member of Congress
