86 posts in this topic

Dick Durbin is trying his best to stop it by saying that a committee is supposed to have a constitutional hearing on this subject in the morning.

Entering the 12th hour now. Other senators are joining in. Godspeed to all the participants. Break Strom Thurmond's record!

I Hope he beats that racist democrat records A*s.

Its nice to see him getting more support with this filibuster, the most people I've seen on the floor all night.

On another forum I frequent they have sent him (Rand) a few pizzas, security wouldn't let the delivery guys through or get him the delivery. One delivery guy waited 45 mins before he had to leave. They ended up giving the pizzas to security who let them park with their flashers on outside the building.

Yeah I heard some fellow senators put a few pieces of food on his desk for him. When he yields for questions, that's when he takes his bathroom breaks. They're basically tag teaming to keep the filibuster going.

Yes I did know that about Stroms record, hence my racist democrat line... As for Rand I see no one else filibustering for my liberties. No politician is perfect, he's good in my book.

Hey there's the first african american Senator helping out Rand, R SC Tim Scott.

can anyone in here think of a situation conceivable in which knocking out an individual with a drone would be beneficial to the greater good of a vast number of people?

if 9-11 had been accomplished through a different mode than aircraft, and a drone killing an individual on american soil would have stopped 9-11 from happening, would you support the use of drones on american soil?

it's a weak argument, i understand, but i'm asking for the sake of determining if there is ever a time when this sort of thing would be acceptable. if there is, i'd wager that provisions like this are being made in case of scenarios like that. i don't think this means that there'll instantly be squadrons of drones patrolling the skies of suburban america waiting to zap every anarchist kid in an NOFX tshirt.

that said, i see the argument that this sets a very dangerous precedent, and i lean towards agreeing with that.
