    Good on him, this drone **** is getting old. It's one thing to go after terrorists, but a drone should never fly over American soil.

    I'm not a huge fan of the trickle down fairy that Paul believes in, but I'm sure as **** not going to support drone strikes on US citizens in country without due process. count me in support of a filibuster until that **** gets straightened out and receives enough daylight to dry it into beef jerky.

    Weren't these same people moaning not four years ago that terrorists held in Guantanamo Bay, terrorists caught on the battlefields of Afghanistan, Iraq and other sites, needed to be provided the full benefit of America's constitutional law, due process, habeas corpus, and full trials in the continental USA under your system of justice. Now, apparently, it's okay for one man, potentially sitting in a golf cart, to approve the direct murder of one of your citizens. What changed?

    Disgusting.
    Good afternoon, CJ.

    What changed? The party that has the POTUS and the majority in the Senate. Also, they are still trying to say they were not in favor of going to war in Iraq, even though we have a record of their votes. I believe that is what is known as "selective amnesia" in certain circles. The rest of us call it ..... :

    You just know that 'without due process' involves 2 low level government idiots looking at each other and saying '**** it, let's nail his ass tonight'.

    yep. the administration needs to walk back this position, and quickly. there isn't going to be broad support for killing citizens in the US with remote control helicopters and no trials. even the 2002-era Republican patriot act cheerleaders probably wouldn't support that if GWB was still president.

    We lucked out this time. It's almost Spring-like here today, and the old snow is almost all melted. That's so the new snow, that will doubtless arrive soon, has a nice dry spot to start anew!
