Q: How many countries will use drones for tax collection?

https://ca.news.yahoo.com/greece-uses-high-tech-drones-fight-tax-evasion-150933272--business.html

 

This is great, shake down your citizens, don't have to hire auditors driving around burning fossil fuel, threaten with a phone call, sit back and count the wire deposits.

 

Sustainable shakedowns coming to a country near you or perhaps yours very soon.

Can you see drones recording people buying and selling at a farmers market or street market to get more sales tax? The drones are for security, nobody would be suspicious.

If the government can use them, so can the criminals. unintended consequences.

 

Great way for a terrorist to drop a dirty bomb on El Paso. I wonder if this would cause a preemptive invasion of Mexico by the US and the US deep state makes it look like an attack on America. Nah, governments don't do things like that, right.

I'm not sure if it doesn't break the privacy law.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
