The Sarah Connor meme has reached the point where seeing it fills me with rage.

The Navy is doing this because of all the large bodies of water in the forests and mountains.

Yep say goodbye to some of the last jobs that meat headed labor could possibly get. Police, fire, truck driving, etc... With the coming of robots it is not a question of if the US is going to be a Socialist welfare state, but how long the elite are going to mange to hold the tax rates artificially low.

Oh, no, advancing technology tends to render the kinds of labor with low productivity-to-effort ratios obsolete first! Everyone panic! Panic like you've apparently been continually panicking since 12000 BCE!
