And rather then Do what ordered the FAA has targeted RC model Avition and tried to harm Hobbiests.... while doing nothing to actually address integration of UAV technology

We should all agree that Its a fact, technology keeps improving and people come up with new inventions. They all have pros and cons and will be integrated into our normal day to day life..eventually. Let us embrace the future.

why does the guy say "could be used for everything from crop dusting to search and rescue after natural disasters". is it so hard to just say "spying and surveillance"?. He's a journalist, isn't he? or is this just an advertisement?

Developing a new efficient power plant for space travel could be used for local power for third world destinations. Research for space travel has benefited the general populace over and over. If NASA can consider reclaiming water form the soil of Mars, why not use the same technology here on Earth?

14 billion for building drones! How about we spend a couple of those to build a new space shuttle?
