    I see the "cause" of Rand Paul's filibuster about as legitimate as if you were asked if you're going to water your lawn this summer and, after you answered in the affirmative, I went on the news declaring " Polgara secretly plotting earthworm genocide".....................

    I've been watching this filibuster since 1pm central time and let me say if Rand actually believes only half of what he says, than he has raised my estimation of him ten-fold.


    Keep it up Senator, keep it up.

    Our former fillibuster champ, Strom Thurmond, used to read from the newspaper, or the dictionary.


    +1 to Rand for at least reading something a bit more interesting.

    Let me get this straight so I understand your hypothetical. You're saying that an American, terrorist or whatever, is known by the government to have nuclear warheads within America and they've let him keep them and they've just been sufficiently tracking this person to know that American terrorist is now about to trigger these nuclear warheads but the only way to stop the terrorist is to contact the President, likely on the golf course or preparing his March Madness brackets, get him to agree to the murder of this individual, launch the drone and track him down, and then fire a missile at the American terrorist to take him out but not activate the nuclear warheads he's about to trigger. Have I got that right??

    Do you have the slightest idea how the drone technology works and why it's used?

    I mean, what's he ragging about ? The AG tells him certain weapons would be used against terrorism inside the US and his response is : "Satanic CoCo hued AG Plans To Target Aunt Bee With Guided Missles" ? Sounds decidedly farfetched....................
