Both Stewart and Colbert, neither of whom has been accused of being a right winger, skewered the idea on their programs. Right off hand, I can't think of any informed commentator from either side who is OK with this huge extra Constitutional power grab, but I suppose there must be someone.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

Will the government be able to carry out drone strikes on Americans that make less than 250k annually or just above 250k?
I am pleasantly surprised that this drone issue has caused such an uproar. It has taken a few years, but at least people are objecting.
My cynical side says nothing of substance will come of it, simply because the hoax of the GWOT is so well established in the public perception.
This might be interesting to all.....

I agree that both parties are trashing the fundamentals in their own pursuits, however, this is neither Franklin's time, nor Madison's, and if there is one thing threatening our basic rights as American's, it is summed up just a couple of postings up on the page as articulated by Napoleon....
It should be frightening to every American that liberals who believe they are in total charge today actually believe this.Originally Posted by Napoleon
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

You're right J-Mac, the average american is pretty well brainwashed, and that's sad.
I think that if they can find them with a drone, then they should capture them and torture them for a while. You know, ship them to Egypt or Bulgaria or any of the 51 black sites outside the Continental USA where the torture is "more" legal. Then ship them to Guantanamo for some theatrical justice and then hang the bastards. I mean, think of the jobs it makes or just "kaboom' and no new jobs. Besides that, GWShiiteForBrains proved that you can surely trust the decisions coming from the Ivory Tower, commonly referred to as the Whitehouse, or not, eh?
