    Drones to be used to locate lost cats and dogs. Is anyone buying this?

    I would say the ABC News reporter is wrong for the simple reason that it's not worth the money to try and locate lost pets using this method.

    Well yes. The question is if not that reason, what is the real reason for domestic deployment?

    Err, what? Are you talking about military drones? Why would they be deployed domestically?

    Yes, it's true, the finding lost pets story is just cover. Big Obama is watching you!

    The administration has already used a drone to kill an accused terrorist citizen overseas, and argued for the propriety of using them domestically.

    Can you see drones being used to stop high speed chases, or issue parking tickets? Perhaps determine if your grass is properly trimmed? More likely is that they might be deployed to take out dangerous criminals like a Chris Dorner, or any American Obama decides is the right target. Imagine Bill Ayers in his youth having such power.
