I know what you're thinking, "C'mon Blue, that'll NEVER happen." But let's think about that for a minute.

Let's say that to prevent Domestic and Child Abuse there was a bill called the Protect Women and Children Act. No legislator or politician would DARE vote against protecting women and children. The bill passes with overwhelming bipartisan support.

The bill stipulates the use of home surveillance as a means of protecting the innocent. The cameras will be federally funded and maintained by govt techs which will create jobs. Failure to comply will result in arrest and $5,000 fine everyday the system is not installed.

The entire National Security Community would rally around the bill calling it, "A necessary tool in the fight against terrorism." It would be linked to 911 Emergency services, Department of Homeland Security, and monitored 24/7.

But you say, "Wait a minute Blue, what about my rights??!!"

You already gave away your bank accounts, credit cards, emails, phone conversations, letters, free speech, privacy and habeous corpus, so why not?

Don't you want to stop Domestic Abuse and Child Abuse? Do you want the terrorist to WIN?

You've done nothing wrong. You don't want any trouble. You can't afford to pay the penalty. You also don't want to let Domestic and Child Abuse go unpunished. What would you do?

Would you let the govt put a CAMERA in your house??!!

    The government will not be satisfied until they have accomplished total privacy invasion.

    I for one don't intend to have potty cams, kitchen cams, or bedroom cams spying on me every time I turn around in my own home.

    If you have a camera attached to your computer the government can already watch you whenever they want via backdoor access.

    We've given up enough of our rights already in the war on terror, drugs, imigrants, etc.
    That being said the technology is out there already and they don't need you to put it in your home. It's called infrared and any "public" camera with pan/tilt/zoom could be redirected to see inside any building. Police already use this stuff in some of their mobile units.

    How about those drones? What kind of surveillance equipment do you think they carry? The picture you paint is getting closer to completion:

    Big Sis Rolls Out Surveillance Drones
    May 3, 2012

    Source: AP

    The federal government’s unmanned drones patrolling the U.S.-Canadian border are venturing into Washington’s airspace.

    In testimony before a U.S. Senate panel last week, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said northern border surveillance using unmanned aerial aircraft now expands from North Dakota to Eastern Washington.

    The two 10,000-pound Predator-B unmanned aircraft based in Grand Forks, N.D., have a 950-mile coverage range and “do enter Washington airspace, in the vicinity of Spokane,” Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman Gina Gray said Thursday.

    That's one capability, plus of course the listening capability, I was referring to above, your right. Who knows how advanced their surveillance may be.

    They have some kind of technology to see through walls. Predator drones can eavesdrop on electronic transmissions, and one drone unveiled at DEFCON last year can crack Wi-Fi networks and intercept text messages and cell phone conversations—without the knowledge or help of either the communications provider or the customer.

    We may not have a choice. Take a look at my comment above yours ^^^^. They recently passed a law allowing 30,000 drones to be flown in civilian airspace. They are already all over the U.S.

    I don't have the article handy to show you where they are being flown. If I recall correctly there are 63 launch sites, so far. There is very little that is private anymore.

    unless the drones are flying in my house that is not the same thing. In public you can already be filmed legally without prior notice.

    Another thing that is not being mentioned at all in the news, is the amount of Executive Orders Obama has been quietly signing into law, circumventing congress and the American public. Just more of our freedoms being taken away, piece by piece, and yet the brainwashed liberal followers don't care.
