Members of Congress are living off food stamps for a week to protest Republican cuts. It’s a challenge for them, but GOP cuts would hurt millions of everyday Americans.
The FBI uses drones for domestic surveillance purposes, the head of the agency told Congress early Wednesday.
Robert Mueller, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, confirmed to lawmakers that the FBI owns several unmanned aerial vehicles, but has not adopted any strict policies or guidelines yet to govern the use of the controversial aircraft.

1. I would describe myself as an anarchist
2. because I’m anti-authoritarian. Nobody knows how to live your life better than you. I blame tumblr, all these people with different opinioins and great ideas allowed me to shape my own.
17.Ron Paul end the fed!
20. Dang this is a hard one! Well if completely ending the federal government isnt an option I would start with the defense budget. Cut that shit in atleast half. Get rid of all our foreign bases. TSA, Homeland Security, and NSA would be out the door. NDAA and the Patriot Act would be abolished. Stop borrowing money from the federal reserve and the use of fiat money. Halt the relationship that corporations share with the federal government. Reform social programs so that they actually help people instead of just soaking up money. Drop the tax rates (obviously gunna happen with all the cuts I’d implement) That’s all I can think of right now I’m probably missing tons of stuff.
