At 10:30am Bob Joseph of WNBF Talk 1290 AM Radio had Michael Vasquez on the airwaves to discuss the exploratory committee and a potential run for the 22nd Congressional District seat of New York. The discussion covered a range of issues: immigration reform, the 4th Amendment, the approval rating of Congress, term limits, and the background of Mr. Vasquez.
One of the biggest issues was the impending concern of drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) and the potential for abuse by a Government that is currently trying to justify the overreach of a NSA program that has effectively violated the privacy of every American in the nation. Rep. Richard Hanna is a member of the “Drone Caucus”, seeking to promote drone testing and production in New York State. Current projections envision the creation of some 2,000 jobs due to drone testing.
Michael Vasquez voiced his concern to Bob Joseph
‘We are talking about filling the skies with drones, and they have their uses. For firefighters and police, of course. But there is not a single law addressing drone use, and we have a Government that is already abusing the 4th Amendment. What is to prevent a drone from sitting outside your living room window? We need to pause, and create some rules before we sell our Rights on the cheap.’
At the end of the half-hour interview, Mr. Joseph offered an open invitation for Michael Vasquez to come back and speak with the news radio listeners in the future.
