    This is obviously being rammed down our throats. Safety be damned. Unfortunately the FAA is becoming highly politicized and even more ineffective( if that's possible )....there needs to be a grassroots movement started with help from the EAA and AOPA, to keep these things confined to restricted airspace. Also many of these drones don't have much of a radar profile (if any). Not sure if being in radar contact is just going to give you a false sense of security. There are way too many unknowns in this scenario.

    Just saw John Kerry on the 6 o'clock news. Iraq is in terrible shape but we're going to fix it. The next shot on the news showed a big drone.

    On the Travel channel (i think) last night, there was a show about how wonderful our lives are going to be with all the drones coming.

    Once again it was stated the drones would be doing those "dull, dirty jobs".
