On the one hand I want to congratulate those Republican state legislators who are attempting to limit drone operations in adherence to the Fourth Amendment. On the other hand, when this thing inevitably happens, it is going to be hilarious watching all of the Randian love-it-or-leave it types around here remain and complain while their state continues to suck the federal teat - especially in the form of drones, their current outrage-du-jour.

If drone technology had "happened" earlier, we would have never had to deal with the Francis Gary Powers fiasco.
