You're talking about aerial drones. What about ground drones?

Aren't there any ways to get us a step closer to the goal of equal opportunity for all that doesn't take away freedoms?
Studies have been done and published then buried over the last 100+ years that clearly show intelligence differences between races.
After correcting for cultural differences (e.g. Asians focus on education more than other races), does your claim still hold true?
No, but it would be nice to have one where everybody has the exact same amount of opportunity.
I think it's more likely that the male co-pilot could overpower the female flight attendant while the pilot is in the lavatory--no conspiracy necessary.
Putting guns in cockpits only makes the task easier.
Really what's needed is to have 3 people in the cockpit at all times to eliminate the near-guarantee that a single person could take over the plane.
It would also help to give airliners a "return to home" feature that could be triggered from outside the cockpit, similar to the emergency brake on passenger planes.
You have a good point, but H1Bs are slave labor because it gives the employer power to kick an employee not just out of the company but out of the country. It's tough for locals to compete in that market.
That same logic can be used to justify data mining of social networks.
When deciding whether to break up a monopoly, does it really matter how it formed?
A government's role should be: (pick one)
1. Break up monopolies, reduce barriers to market entry, and encourage competition, or
2. Regulate the behavior of monopolies.
Net Neutrality attempts to do #2.
No, no, the other west!
Half a cent per gallon is 7,727 times MORE per gallon than a Los Angeles resident typically pays if they manage to stay in Tier 1 pricing all year.
According to your link, water is $4.832 per HFC (748 gallons), which is $0.00646 per gallon. That's more than half a cent.
Also, tiered pricing is unfortunate in the way that it rewards the wealthy (who generally use the most water) for conserving a gallon of water more than it rewards the poor for doing the same thing.
So half a cent would more than triple my water bill.
I very highly doubt that, because demand for water isn't perfectly inelastic. Nothing is.
RO of saltwater costs less than half a cent per gallon, so it's not very expensive at all.
