I actually posted an article on the U.S. uses of drones in the U.S. and it didn't get the attention that it deserved. Only a few responded and their responses were vague and some were just out in la la land.
No American should be killed by a drone or any other means, assassinated, in this country for any alleged crime unless they are arrested and given a fair trial. I said fair not tried by the media or a few elite government heads.
In my other post I used an example of how would you like to be sitting at home watching tv and the government has you listed falsely as a terrorist and they blow you and your house up with a missile from a drone. It would kill you, your family and maybe even your next door neighbors. Sounds a little far out and extreme but that is exactly what is happening overseas.
This man Brennen seems to think that just maybe the end justifies the means. BTW did you see Holder being questioned by the Congressional Committee today? They had to almost horse whip him to say that drones wouldn't be used to kill Americans in the United States. He finally said they wouldn't, but nobody believes him after watching his testimony.
All of this should start to even make you wonder what this Administration is up to and it should worry you. Speeches by Obama about transparency and justice for all doesn't change the facts. There is something really starting to smell bad about the whole scheme of things.
Rand Paul is right on this one, and I am glad Ron Wyden stood side by side with him. Right Wingers and Left Wingers can both be right on many issues.

It makes me wonder why people are so blinded by their political prejudices.

Obama is simply continuing the wrong-headed illegal and unconstitutional policies Bush and Cheney started.

It was wrong-headed, illegal, and unconstitutional for Bush, and it's wrong-headed, illegal, and unconstitutional for Obama.

They both are corporate tools on many issues who take advantage of the the extremes in both parties keeping reasonable people from exercising control.

Brennan is a war criminal who should be extradited to face trial for the tortures, kidnapping, and murders the CIA did under his watch for the last 25 years.

WHY is this important NOW? If the poster says, "yes", he'll be called a liar. If he says, "no", he'll be called a George Bush lover and Obama hater. WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES THIS MAKE NOW????? We are concerned about what is happening NOW, TODAY. Can YOU get past Bush????? The other libs can't. Perhaps YOU can't either. Whether or not someone bitched during the Bush years has absolutely NO affect on NOW. All the PAST bitching in the world is not going to change anything NOW. BTW, government corruption did NOT start with Bush. Sheesh.......

One MUST also include UNIONS when complaining about companies hiring cheap labor. Unions price themselves out of the market by holding their companies hostage until they get their way. I am guessing there are MANY working class Americans who would LOVE to earn the wages that the union workers are receiving, but still aren't happy with. Without unions, the playing field for American workers would be equal. Politicians get millions in contributions from Union lobbiests. I realize we are talking about illegals, but we are also talking about jobs and cheap labor.
Your dislike for the common man is showing AGAIN. Without Unions we would have NO middle class, argue that point. Corporations took advantage of workers until over time Unions stopped it. Corporations allowed Unions to gain advantage during the boom years when lots of money was flowing and made no real attempt to correct the mistake until the great recession. You seem to fault Unions for wanting wage increases, please give me the name of anyone who doesn't want just that. Unions have taken a huge hit recently, one that needed to be made. In some cases governments have in my opinion treated their union workers in a terrible way taking away things that were promised, just to gain public support and votes. A lot of those government jobs did not pay that well, but the benefits made it worthwhile. Not much difference from paying into a program like social security vs. getting paid less to be part of a program government with promised benefits. Just proves government has no problem taking away what it has agreed to give, if it’s politically advantageous to them. If the numbers worked in the politicians favor Social Security would be gone today! You should be very happy, over the last 20 years spendable income for middle American has declined, while your rich idols has increased, a lot.

Politicians take millions of dollars from ANYONE, not just Unions! They are an equal opportunity offender on both sides, you got the cash, you got a politicians attention. Today thanks to the current Supreme Court its possible for one person to get a candidate elected on a national level. And you won’t even know for sure who that person is, money is no problem. Georgia politicians for once have done something good,just recently. They have severely limiting what can be given by lobbiests and making it public record. One of the few things in recent memory they have done that made any sense. The feds need to do the same thing, but they won't as long as abortion, Mexicans, church in government and guns is all anyone seems to care about.

Now exactly whose fault is all that??

Loved a quote from Mary Matalin when talking about Democrat scare tactics and the sequester, their "sky is falling" pronouncements are "predicated on the presumptive ignorance of the american people." So very sad and so very true, just look at the election results.
As an independent voter I've always been for the sequestor since its inseption. Best part about it is that the big tax breaks for wealthy expire, military full of pork and kickbacks cut moderately, Justice department which includes the DEA cut more than moderatly. A very very good deal for all Americans except those who have offshore bank accounts and good connections with Boeing, Haliburton, Gruman Corp., etc.

Very strange how these republicans blame labor unions! Unions have been declining in membership for the past 30 years. Now Bibb City textile workers( non-union) lost their jobs to Mexico because Corp. America did'nt want to keep paying them a barely liveable wage in the 60,s and 70's of 3.25 an hour. No, no labor unions here but pure evil greed on the part of CEO's and their supporters.Now most republicans would'nt work for minimum wage but they expect you to do their manual labor for that or if they could for less. The minimum wage will be increased to 9.00 an hour and all these whinny republicans will have to accept it. Also they ARE going to pay more in tax cause WE plan on taking from the greedy b-stards.

I don't know if Brannen is a war criminal or not. He has never been charged and tried. Also he did not run the CIA for 25 years.
You are dead on correct about the rest of your statement. I don't care what party is in power or who the potus is, they have no right to stomp all over the constitutional rights of American citizens. I don't think there are very many reasonable people in Washington or even in local politics. Just look at the way they are going after the law abiding citizens guns. It is being done state by state. The elite will have protection but the common man that these do gooder politicians are always spouting off about that they know best for us, is going to leave the common man unarmed and defenseless. Why are they so afraid of us? Is it because they are screwing us and they are afraid we will get tired of it?
Now we may be inadvertently killed by a hellfire missile if we are near someone on a hit list. Who knows we could be put on a hit list and know nothing about it, as we haven't done anything wrong.
Where does this insanity end? Seems as if common sense is no longer common.
One last point is that something must be done to pull this economy out of this terrible unemployment rut. I think that a lot of this fanfare over what I have just discussed is also a cover to keep the unemployment and economic issues from being discussed. We can talk about anything but don't talk about our economy.

I dislike the common man.= Too pathetic to even address. Just liberal drivel.
Don't need unions NOW.
The common man doesn't hold the company HOSTAGE when he can't get his way. I don't feel the least bit sorry for ANY union member. They have lived very HIGH on the backs of those who actually DID fight for their wages. lol They'be been treated badly???? Why? Because they don't have luxury insurance for basically nothing. Because their wages have been brought down while MANY other middle class people don't even have a JOB? Give me a break.
Did I say ONLY unions pay for politicians? Where did I post that?
Wonder why people don't just cross picket lines? FEAR. Care to explain that?
I support Right to Work. You are wasting your time defending unions to me. I have a brain.

Don't get too excited. Actually, the middle class(you and I ) will be carrying the burden. Wait and see. Heck! We already are. Certainly labor unions and their lobbyiest share in Obama's decisions. They paid for him. He made no secret about his support of labor unions. That's not news. Their membership should be declining. Not needed. If we are going to make everyone equal, let's mean it. BTW, I think 9:00 an hour is fine. Business owners probably won't and will cut back hours and not hire, but those who get to keep their jobs will be happy. Whiny repubicans? Gullible and uninformed democrats!
Your last sentence proves your wealth envy. It's not going to happen. They have too much money to let that happen. Seriously. It won't happen. Our government it telling you what you want to hear. It simply won't happen. Why do you think some very wealthy people support Obama? Ex. Oprah, Buffet, etc.?

This is exactly what I was talking bout in another post several days ago.
These old elite Republicrats need to go. They are RINO's and are political cowards. They never stand up for principle and always bow down to the elitist power structure. They always fall in line with the wishes of the progressives and are shameless cowards. McCain was a brave war hero but somewhere along the line he was either brain washed by the N. Viet Nam or just lost his way somewhere. Graham has openly claimed he was a progressive, has been in office way too long, and it shows.
They just want everybody to just sit down, shut up and not to make any waves. They are stars in "Lets Make a Deal". Two old incompetent farts that should have never been reelected. They are not Republicans and they are not conservatives. People such as these guys should be booted out of office or this country will not survive. Check out the link below.
