86 posts in this topic

I was against Bush with his bullsh*t patriot act and I am against Obamas pushing it the next step forward. I'm gonna guess the line draggers will be agaisnt our liberties depending on the red or blue in the whitehouse..

we've been killing noncombatants for years. it sucks when you could feasibly end up being the victim of an unwarranted drone strike, eh?

Don't put words in my mouth, thanks. When have I ever condoned that, got a quote of mine or are you talking out of your ass?

No matter what this is an unacceptable method of operation due to it's abusive potential.

it's been unacceptable from the start; this is only the next logical step in the war on terror. this is what those millions of hippies were protesting about ~10 years ago

They've protested it throughout history. They just haven't always been "hippies."

You put words into my mouth by your quote. If that was not your intent I apologize.

i used "hippy" facetiously as that's what they were derisively referred to as when they (correctly) protested the "war on an idea"

anyway i just don't think that the use of drones in america should evoke some higher level of repulsion to their use than what i've already experienced, having learned of their destruction in the middle east. words like "noncombatants" don't phase me bc, like i said earlier, we've been killing the poo out of noncombatants forever. and words like "innocent american citizens" don't pull at my heartstrings any more or less than "innocent afghan citizens" or really "innocent (anywhere) civilians"

Rand needs to stop this before Obama comes and knocks him over the head with that nobel peace prize.

I've emailed Lidsey Graham why he was eating at Obamas dinner while Rand was eating a snickers and fighting for our liberties.. Can't wait for his auto response...
