Of course they aren't. Imaging satellites fly in polar sun-synchronous orbits. They pass over the same spot on earth at roughly the same time each day, and can view that spot for less than fifteen minutes at a time. Do you really think that anybody can afford the constellation of 96 high resolution satellites it would require to provide 24/7 coverage of every spot on the globe? Or that there would be enough bandwidth to process the downlinks?

You are a reality star. You might think no one sees you in your fenced-in backyard grilling hamburgers in your boxer shorts. But government drones equipped with HD cameras are filming a new reality show starring you: “Drone Dynasty.”

In popular reality shows like “Duck Dynasty” and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” we essentially stalk people as they make fools of themselves on camera. In general, stalking is becoming culturally acceptable as our ability to spy, share and sensationalize life extends beyond reality television.
