We would scream if they spent money to send inspectors door to door but are upset because they use aerial photos...this has been done since the age of air planes. Do i worry about my privacy...yes, I also worry about my safety and security. Sometimes you have to make a sacrifice. Also if people were not so dumb when installing things there wouldn't be the need for permits. Then again if I have to pay taxes for things then everyone should.

Kids drown in pools, rivers, lakes, ponds, and streams. Swimming should be banned. lol.

If they only put such an effort to find UNDOCUMENTED ALIENS.

What if I'm nude getting a tan but I live on 30 acres, no neighbors in sight. Would I get fined for this ? How can U call it indecent exposure when there is no one around. I can't help for the peeping toms, that is NOT my problem.

This is all just Hippo Theatrical speaking of course.

Your tax dollars at waste.

Abuse ad nauseaum of the zoning concept, meant to keep chemical plants out of residential areas. The ultimate example of "the camel's nose under the tent".

Oh well, the Supreme Court will restore all of our rights. lol!

Now the local police need to team up with the feds for local small time drugdealers to see the bigger fish they can catch.

Big Brother has always been watching and I am sure has real time recordings of criminal activities. Now the people watching the people should not take bribes to make sure the copies go away!
