Don't do it.UTAH..
yeah enough big brother we all ready are going to have the NSA intell here at

1000 new jobs? Yes, but will Utah do anything for a job, or actually be
thoughtful about the quality and values associated with these new jobs? Come on,
lead the country in saying enough of building weapons and spy technology, and
create jobs by rebuilding the US' failing infrastucture, or create jobs
that produce clean energy. So much better to do beside building killing and
The federal budget deficit is horrible. Utah [eople complain often and loudly
about the deficit. But its different when jobs are involved. Someone somewhere
else must make a sacrifice but give us those jobs.
Do we say drones have not yet proved safe, and more testing is necessary? (Maybe
so, but I'm sure not sure.) Or, do we wonder why testing still needs to be
done, after all these years? This story does raise my eyebrow, as I question
whether this is necessary government spending or whether it is more of the
industry of preying upon taxpayers. When is enough testing enough? Why would we
keep testing beyond when the safety of drones is established and why do we
suppose we cannot establish that safety before 2025? (The testing is to last
that long.)I say, if we are to go ahead with this testing, the contract
should be awarded to a company not yet in existence, and with owners not
affiliated with any company now in existence, as a hedge against it having been
lobbied through by a company seeking to make industry out of money they can
squeeze out of the government.
Might be a good idea--we can get the drones to spy on the NSA.
