Homer is an idiot. What was he suppose to do? Jump up and down screaming then run out of the room scaring the hell out of those children? The president does nothing till the Secret Service is ready, doofus.

The LAPD has always been out of control. That cop will end up killing himself.
Never, but he will never surrender either.

Right now, despite every cop in the region being on the case, they have no clue where he is. Most of the cops are milling around in the snow at Big Bear, but Dorner is probably long gone.

"When Obama came into office, he promptly increased the drone strikes in Pakistan in an effort to kill more Taliban that were hiding out in the tribal regions of Pakistan. However, it was already known during the Bush administration that the drone strikes had killed civilians, yet Obama decided to continue this policy, knowing that in doing so he would put more Pakistani civilians at risk. By doing this, he is violating Geneva Convention Article 3 Section 1A which states that “violence to life and person” are prohibited in reference to civilians and “Persons taking no active part in the hostilities.” In doing this Obama has committed war crimes"
but the GOP supports drone strikes. no matter who is killed.

so it can't be a war crime. re: Iraq.

Living in the South I go there just to feel better about myself and the choices I've made in life.
In my long and zig-zag quest to marry the most unsuitable women possible, I married one of them and was subsequently condemned to live and fish there for many years. I bear the scars to this day. We should compare notes someday were it not so entirely predictable. "Hey, y'all want more greets?" I realize now that my experiences in the south can be analogized to the vocalizations of a TV character many years ago... Lurch groaning.

Obama going to bed at 11PM so he'd be fresh to party hearty with Beyonce and JayZ was your story Flacko and you sure as fk didn't hear Panetta say that.
It's snowing at Bear Mountain where Dorner is said to be hiding!
Too bad he's black, they'll think he's a black bear, sticking out like a sore thumb. He's a goner soon, unless he brought a kkk hoodie!

Meanwhile, a myriad of other crimes will not be attended to because they're all on a wild goose chase. He can't hide forever. I think he'll kill himself.

That sort of thing happened in Vietnam because the troops didn't want to obey lawful, but stupid, orders in a ridiculous war where they were a political sacrifice.
Come to think of it, that might apply now.
I wasn't referring to Vietnam, dear, but no matter. If Vietnam, however, was not "illegal" - how bout that Gulf of Tonkin incident?- then, obviously, nothing is illegal. Therefore, a soldier DOES NOT have the right to disobey an illegal order because there's no such thing. Your words, not mine.

Following recent revelations about President Obama‘s drone program — including a Justice Department memo that details some legal reasoning behind it — there’s been a flurry of both support and criticism. On Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) weighed in, defending the president.

"Every member of Congress needs to get on board," Graham said, according to POLITICO. "It’s not fair to the president to let him, leave him out there alone quite frankly. He’s getting hit from libertarians and the left."

and FOX says drones kill Muslims so it's all good.

some of you rightwingers need to get with the supporting Obama right wing program.

The nifty thing about the convenient concept of there not being any such thing as an "illegal" order, is that if the orders are never illegal then no one can ever be held accountable for issuing them. Quite the catchy arrangement.

Oh really? It's never going to happen, because it will then open the can of worms that Nancy Pelosi put to bed when she said "impeachment is off the table", if they start; then Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz et al, are going down with the ship.
