Domestic Drone Industry Booms

Activist Post

The drone arms race has gone global. But inside the United States, a study by the Association For Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) showed why drone proliferation continues to ramp up at a nearly exponential rate: it has become one of the fastest growing areas of the U.S. economy. A report entitled, "The Economic Impact of Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration in the United States" is clear in its conclusion that competition for jobs and tax dollars created by drone tech development is likely to provide the impetus to loosen state regulations on drone use. The AUVSI latest projection is that well over 100,00 new jobs will be created in the first years of full integration.

Of course the AUVSI has a vested interest in promoting drone use despite the organization's "non-profit" status. From their About Us page they don't hide their goals and connections:
The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International is the world's largest non-profit organization devoted exclusively to advancing the unmanned systems and robotics community. Serving more than 7,500 members from government organizations, industry and academia, AUVSI is committed to fostering, developing, and promoting unmanned systems and robotic technologies. AUVSI members support defense, civil and commercial sectors. (Read full mission statement and their goals for the world HERE)
As RT reports below: "More than 7,000 people descended on DC for the 2013 AUVSI conference . . . Alongside were states like Idaho, North Dakota and Arizona, welcoming these flying bots to their airspace with open arms and open coffers."

World runs on making something, even an immaterial idea can be used to increase you wealth if your convincing enough to get others to pay you for them.
Sales people do not make drones they are all smiley faced college educated nice people who talk others into buying killer machines or more friendly spying ones.
That the people who buy may and in all likelihood have talked to minds that do some nefarious and borderline sociopathic acts does not dissuade them from closing the deal
Convincing people in governments. yes governments plural as your local is not the one over me here, is very easy as they can buy items that they personally do not pay for and by doing so increase their pay and stature among both fellow workers and special outside of office interest.
The janes and johns are just followng the american consumer thing, where anything legal to make a buck let others sort out the morality and non immediate bullshit.
They are not evil or good just janes and johns going to work in an american dream scape.
A dreamscape fast turning into a nightmare but with a job they can hide behind; If I don' t take the job somebody else will.
In the end those who do least physical and are most remote from sources of pain they helped induce. they are the ones who point to other portions of society as being at fault.

The problem for those "with a job they can hide behind; If I don't take the job somebody else will" is that "just doing my job" and "just following orders" is NOT a defense in a court of law here in the USA.

Thier answer should have been, "No, and we do NOT want you making drones here in the USA or anywhere else in this world as you are using them as weapons against the people."

All of those who are making the biometrics, and the drones, etc - one day you will have your day in court. We WILL prosecute you asking for the highest penalty for YOUR crimes against America and her people. If you are found treasonous, it will be death.
