    I'm visiting in NYC. From northern Virginia spouse reports no big deal. Rand Paul is doing a fine Jimmy Stewart.

    I agree completely.

    Maybe. That you think the country will then turn to a Cub Scout on LSD, like Rand Paul, is where you lose me.................

    Insurgency we understand perhaps a little bit more because of the Taliban. And that is that they went about systematically understanding how to disrupt and change a person's entire processes. And these Taliban -- I'm not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban -- no, that's not what we're saying. I'm saying an example of how you go about is to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their front line message. And we need to understand that insurgency may be required when the other side, the House leadership, does not follow the same commands, which we entered the game with.
    Maybe he figures some of his colleges might be on the potential target list.

    There is absolutely no justification for killing American citizens without due process. The president should be ashamed of himself. We need to stop letting politicians abuse this fear of terrorism. More Americans are killed by food poisoning than by terrorists each year.

    I also approve of having to actually stand there and talk in order to filibuster.

    Kudos to Rand Paul for protesting the abuse of military power on American citizens. Also for his choice of reading material.

    Oh, I don't know. Killed a bunch during the Civil War. Seems like the same thing.

    Anyone from the Left who sees any validity in the antics of the son of the honorable Dr. "Quack" Rand needs to question the effectiveness of their meds........................

    Rand is obviously grandstanding since an actual talking filibuster isn't needed, but if ever there was cause to grandstand, this is it.

    Go, Rand. Go!
