No one is NOT defending the use of drones in limited strikes on known enemy sites.
But the overuse of drones that puts innocents in fear for their lives every single day and drones used willy-nilly to kill males in a certain region who are "considered" the enemy is cowardly.
So if Krauthammer thinks that's A-Okay, then we defer 180 degrees in our opinions on that.

That's why they concentrate on ruining our country state by state, governor by governor.
So, you don't like the concept of a republic. If you need any proof is your ignorance, just read your last post, then explain to us how the development of republics in the world's evolution of governmental systems was an advancement beyond totalitarian dictatorships with unshared power.

Do you ever listen to yourself?

Uh, no.
It is you claiming the Dems engaged in illegal wars. I would think that with such a bold claim that you have repeatedly demand me to disprove- rather than you prove- would be something you would take pride in proving me wrong.
lol! Ohhhhh noooooo son! Why would I make such a claim? All I'm asking if for you to support your ridiculous claims of all these 'wars' by dems.

I think the facts are getting to you and you're finding your only mouse hole to escape it to LIE even more!

black on black crime has increased? cite it.
African-Americans constitute about 13% of the population, yet between 1976 and 2005 blacks committed more than half of all murders in the U.S. The black arrest rate for most offenses—including robbery, aggravated assault and property crimes—is typically two to three times their representation in the population.

It is a major problem and refusing to discuss it does not provide solutions-agree.

Like THEY say, It's the 'Chicago Way': "13 Illinois Public Officials Indicted Including Rev. Wright's Daughter." From Breitbart:

'Thirteen members of Illinois' powerful and elite political class have now been charged in fraud schemes by the U.S. Attorney’s office this year. At least two have some form of connection to President Obama: Jeri L. Wright, daughter of the controversial Reverend Jeremiah Wright whose church Obama attended; and Quinshaunta R. Golden, former Department of Public Health chief of staff to President Obama’s longtime friend Eric E. Whitaker.

Golden is also the niece of U.S. Congressman Danny K. Davis (D-IL).
{...}
Six of the 13 accused have already pleaded guilty and are scheduled to be sentenced in October and November. The remaining seven, including Wright’s daughter and Davis’s niece, have trials set through the beginning of December.

Jeri L. Wright is charged with money laundering and making a false statement before a grand jury. She is described as a “close associate and friend” of Regina and Ronald Evans (also indicted) and "accused of aiding the Evanses in their money-laundering scheme.”'

They'll be joining Jesse Jackson, Jr. and former Ill. Governor Blago real soon...

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau officials are seeking to monitor four out of every five U.S. consumer credit card transactions this year — up to 42 billion transactions – through a controversial data-mining program, according to documents obtained by the Washington Examiner.

A CFPB strategic planning document for fiscal years 2013-17 describes the “markets monitoring” program through which officials aim to monitor 80 percent of all credit card transactions in 2013.

The U.S. Census Bureau reports that 1.16 billion consumer credit cards were in use in 2012 for an estimated 52.6 billion transactions. If CFPB officials reach their stated "performance goal," they would collect data on 42 billion transactions made with 933 million credit cards used by American consumers.

In addition, CFPB officials hope to monitor up to 95 percent of all mortgage transactions, according to the planning document.

“This is one step closer to a Big Brother form of government where they know everything about us,” said Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis.

At a Wednesday hearing before the House Financial Services Committee chaired by Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, CFPB Director Richard Cordray defended the data-mining practice and said his agency is monitoring credit card usage at 110 banks, including Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Capital One, Discover and American Express.

Secretary of State John Kerry's negotiations with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov got off to a rocky start Thursday, with the Russian mocking Kerry right at the outset.

"They got off to a really bad start yesterday --- partly because of the Putin op-ed and partly because Kerry in the opening remarks spoke at length --- and I mean at length --- compared to the unprepared few welcoming comments from the Russian counterpart," NBC News foreign correspondent Andrea Mitchell said on "Morning Joe."

"And then the Russian minister said at the end, very tartly,'Sometimes diplomacy demands silence.'"
