Another First: Nobel Peace Prize Honoree Moonlights as One Man Death Panel

I'm so friklkinn confused about all this drone stuff.

I assume the cia etc. assassinate people all the time. The remote-control aspect is disturbing but hardly a new twist -- think explosives, poison, etc. Flying deathtoys, though, area whole nother level of creepy.

I also think that THE FIRST RULE ABOUT DRONECLUB IS DON'T TALK ABOUT DRONECLUB. Just saying.


Perhaps it's time to take back our allowing the government the right to kill us (we've granted this right to the States and the Fed and now the President. I don't want my government to have the right to kill me OR to force a transvag ultrasound"wand" the size of a large curling iron up my pants. While we're on the subject, my blood, pee, and hair are off limits, too. WHy have we given the gov these rights and should we repeal them?

2. If you don't want to be targeted by a drone, don't go to a foreign country and plot terrorist

attacks against the US. It's that simple.

If you are afraid of drone attacks in the US by this president, you are as nutty as the paranoid gun nutters.

4. kestrel i love you but as you said

"If you are afraid of drone attacks in the US by this president..."

It's not THIS President I'm all that worried about. Slippery slope, future jackass presidents, all that.

5. Well, of course a future RW president can and will do all manner of things to deny people their

constitutional rights.

You are NOT going to put the genie back in the bottle. We cannot un-create drone technology. We need to make sure THIS president has the support he needs to ensure that he can appoint liberal judges to as many court slots as possible to ensure our rights are protected.

Handwringing and fearmongering about President Obama and drones being used against Americans IN THE US is divisive and unnecessary. We all understand how RW politicians work 24/7 to hurt us. To lump him with them is unconscionable.

6. It's the

"Handwringing and fearmongering about President Obama and drones being used against Americans IN THE US is divisive and unnecessary. We all understand how RW politicians work 24/7 to hurt us. To lump him with them is unconscionable."

...Ron Paul school of fear mongering. Remember those elaborate videos from the campaign?

It's interesting that the claim always starts out accusing the President of wanting to kill Americans, and when challenged it becomes: But a future RW President.

I don't fear drones.

7. there's quite a few killed by drones types who did not plot terrorists attacks against anyone but

they were all women and kids that were not americans so they don't matter. how convenient to excuse the murder of those people just because they were in a foreign country. one could at least have respect for the illegally murdered dead
