    We've already been subjugated by a Government that couldn't even pronounce Morality, never mind spell it or know the definition of it. Therefore it's either revolt or capitulate, neither of which are pleasant options.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I very rarely see reasons to capitulate. I do live in an Either/Or world and always have.

    The mishap represents a major blow to the Central Intelligence Agency and its covert drone program in Pakistan, which President Barack Obama embraced and expanded after coming to office in 2009.
