Conservatives have no problem with drones as military weapons, but have serious problems with drones used to spy on and/or eliminate domestic political opposition.
Does the president have the constitutional authority to send a drone-launched Hellfire missile through your kitchen — you, a good citizen of Topeka to whom POTUS might have taken a dislike — while you’re cooking up a pot roast?

The constituency of those who could not give this question a straight answer is exceedingly small. Unfortunately, among them is Attorney General Eric Holder. Enter the foil. He told a Senate hearing that such an execution would not be “appropriate.”

“Appropriate” being a bureaucratic word meaning nothing, Holder’s answer was a PR disaster. The correct response, of course, is: Absent an active civil war on U.S. soil (of the kind not seen in 150 years) or a jihadist invasion from Saskatchewan led by the Topeka pot-roaster, the answer is no.

The hypotheticals being inconceivable, Paul’s performance was both theatrically brilliant and substantively irrelevant.

so what kind of conservative were you referring to? seems not all conservatives need to play to the hypothetical so the base can say: bad Obama!

well that really explains why nutjob birther lawyers try to get courts to accept the 'opinion' of so called document analysts who call it a fake.

so how can they do that if all they've ever seen is a PDF or a JPG?

But I say to you that every one who is angry with his brother shall be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother shall be liable to the council, and whoever says,‘Thou fool,’ shall be in danger of Hell fire.”
I'm just quoting from the red print...I read the book.
I've been called everything from a moron to a racist by almost every liberal on here including yourself for simply stating what I believe to be true. Insults aren't my style but pointing out the obvious is. My posts have nothing to do with anger and everything to do with frustration.

Also, never having been angry with a fellow Christian or calling them a fool, this scripture doesn't apply either. Biblically speaking, "brothers" and "sisters" are believers in Christ.

My hope is personal freedoms and freedom of choice will prevail in this country and a nation looking to God as the source of all our blessings and the supplier of all our needs. Not big government or ungodliness in the form of self-importance and in the guise of taking away one's dignity for votes.

Perhaps because the forgery is so inept that it is obvious even on a pdf. Or perhaps to force production of the actual document.

disturbing maybe, but far from indicative of some conspiracy to kill tea party members, as Mr. Krauthammer has indicated on more than one occasion.

Krauthammer: Of all issues, Rand Paul’s drone concern ‘most ridiculous and absurd’

On this weekend’s broadcast of the syndicated “Inside Washington” television program, conservative Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer blasted Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s recent filibuster and mocked the idea of a drone attack on United States soil.

We have received several e-mails today calling into question the validity of the PDF that the White House released, namely that there are embedded layers in the document. There are now several other people on the case. We looked into it and dismissed it.

The PDF is composed of multiple images. That’s correct. Using a photo editor or PDF viewer of your choice, you can extract this image data, view it, hide it, etc. But these layers, as they’re being called, aren’t layers in the traditional photo-editing sense of the word. They are, quite literally, pieces of image data that have been positioned in a PDF container. They appear as text but also contain glyphs, dots, lines, boxes, squiggles, and random garbage. They’re not combined or merged in any way. Quite simply, they look like they were created programmatically, not by a human.

What’s plausible is that somewhere along the way — from the scanning device to the PDF-creation software, both of which can perform OCR (optical character recognition)— these partial/pseudo-text images were created and saved. What’s not plausible is that the government spent all this time manufacturing Obama’s birth certificate only to commit the laughably rookie mistake of exporting the layers from Photoshop, or whatever photo editing software they are meant to have used. It’s likely that whoever scanned the birth certificate in Hawaii forgot to turn off the OCR setting on the scanner. Let’s leave it at that.

and i don't think Obama feels threatened by failed birth court cases.

The religious left has big government as their God.

Religion does not belong in government, regardless of the perspective.
