<quoted text> Obviously, that is a fair position on this issue, and I can certainly see that side of it. In fact that was my original thought on this. Then I gave a lot of thought about how I would feel if George W. Bush had come up with this program using a memo written by Gonzales and....I came to the conclusion that I would not trust the memo, or the program, anymore than I trusted the torture memos....or for that matter the warrentless wiretap program, or checking on which books I happen to borrow from a public library ...etc. Those overreaches pale in comparison to the killing of an American citizen by our government...on the say so of the intelligence agencies that gave us WMD in Iraq. Further...there will be other Republican Presidents in the future, and while I MIGHT be tempted to trust Obama with this awesome power,... I do not wish to give it to all future executives that may occupy the office, and that will be the result of allowing this to continue without congressional oversight and legislative constraint.
Obviously I consider you my friend, and you have my respect no matter that we may disagree from time to time !
You make some very valid points. I think I will give this some more thought and wait for more information to surface before I make my final decision and it's possible that I may change my Mind. The point you make about future Presidents having this authority, alarms me greatly! It would be so easy to abuse this power and I know that, as I posted before, Congress very seldom revisits anything once they pass it. The thought of Dick Cheney having this Power disturbs me very, very much...more so than Bush, actually, and it's very likely that we will have more "Dick Cheneys" in the White House, in our future. To give them this power over the Life and Death of "Accused" Americans, is scarier than the American Traitors or the Drones, because it could be so easily abused.

You know, I donít watch much TV. Wouldnít recognize a Kardashian if I bumped into one, and Boo Boo was Yogi the Bearís little buddy. My wife and I subscribe to Netflix, but for the life of me, I canít ever find a movie I want to watch. You might say Iím TV and movie challenged.

One night she was surfing around Netflix, and came across the TV series, Breaking Bad. We both got hooked, but it ended. So we moved to 24 with Keifer Sutherland as badass Jack Bauer, saving LA from terrorists whoíve planted a nuke bomb somewhere in the city?

So what do you think is the best way to handle the situation?

The George Bush MO: Capture and waterboard the guy who knows where the bomb is.

The Obama MO: Kill him with a drone.

Millions of innocent people will die if the nuke goes off.

SAFE??????????
Yes I feel really safe here with the crime syndicate running the show.
Eat your friggen BT corn and enjoy your tumors cause the FDA gets big bucks from Monsanto and Obama made sure we are there to help them so we let that revolving door swing.
I feel really safe knowing the Banksters can rob the world blind and a lot of campaign cash is the response and all that's needed to continue the scam.
I feel safe getting sucked dry.
I feel really safe being a lab rat for whomever the DC pigs can get money from to let them use us.
It's ok to let Merck make Billions on Viox when they knew it caused heart attacks. Just fine them a little and send them on their way to their next money maker till it gets pulled.Round and round we go.
I can go on and on with the BS could write a book about it but many already have you should read them and freak yourself out silly.AL Qaeda ?Just check your underware and you'll be fine.
You don't seem to know where to put your neurotic fears do you?
Besides with an Atomic Bomb you just crawl under your desk to be safe and sound remember they told YOU so?
Look, there are steps you, yourself , can do to limit the food damage of the companies, so stop whining about that.
As for the damage from a Nuclear Attack, if the back and forth didn't completely destroy the world, then what would be left, nobody in their right Mind would want to try to live in, anyway. There are some things worse than death and that would be one of them.
People like you can't enjoy their Life for worrying that they are going to lose it....kinda the same way you are about your money. And you call that "Living"...I don't! I call that a perpetual state of misery! Good God, Man, let go of things you have no control over before you waste what Life you have left! I suspect you've already wasted the biggest part of it, doing exactly what you are doing now...living in a constant state of fear, some real but most, imaginary!

Oh please make your finale decision Quickly.What shall we do where will we turn for answers.Please do not let us down.
We have looked to you to save us from Fox and Alex Jones and the Drudge Report and official and legal documetation.All those places we have searched in vain for truth and justice.
Oh Sassy.HELP US.

Good morning! I had a bad go of my polyneuropathy for several days - first time I've had a chance to get on in awhile....meaning it's the first time I haven't been horizontal and stiff as a board.
Here's something I'm involved with, may be coming to a town near you. This is how to do work without government.
The nonprofit group "Feed My Starving Children" along with a Chattanooga group, "Covenant Values Foundation" set up in Chattanooga last month and held what's called MobilePack.
4,500 volunteers worked two-hour shifts for five days...the result: 1,213,750 meals packaged for children in developing countries who subsist on zero to one meal a day.
Here's the CVF website: http://grants.covenantvalues.com/faqs#foundat...

Good Morning "Nuh" ! Glad to see your post. I had never hear of this program before you posted this, and it seems to be a great idea, with potential to save/change a lot of lives, not to mention minds ! I will check it out further and see what I can do to help.

Talk to everyone later, have a great day all !

Why don't you tell the bankrupt farmers that monsanto took to the cleaners while the friggen crooks let them do it.
Tell the farmers they have control over the wind blowing Monsantos crap in someones field a bird craping in your organic crops and a GMO sprouting up.Sure Baby we got control over that.
Once that stuff is out there its out there and there is no pulling it back in you fool.
They are sucking up every life form and manipulating it for control and profit.Life itself is being dismantled and you are ok with that.

I'm sure that you genuinely see it that way because considering another's point of view and respecting it, is a totally foreign concept to you. Let me guess, you're a Tea Party Member, aren't you?
For your information, OT EARNED my respect...something that very Few on Topix have done and justifiably so! That's a foreign concept to you, I know. But, I'll give you a hint...stop playing silly games, be sincere and forthright, learn to talk and to say what you mean and mean what you say, without bashing and slurring the other Person, even if you don't agree with what they say. Respect is a mutual give and take, not a one-sided, "my way or the highway" kind of thing. Most of us learned these things early in Life, too bad you didn't...and obviously, still haven't. And playing games with People who try to treat you like you're "somebody", is not the way to win friends or influence People! You deserve what you get when you do that, which is somebody that is only playing games with you, also!

Well, it looks like the Dems are pretty well aligned with Obama, and the Republicans seem against him in relation to the drone strikes on American citizens...
I can see both sides of this issue, but, just as I opposed the parts of the "Patriot Act" that took away the civil liberties of Americans in the name of safety, just as I opposed the UNLIMITED detention of prisoners in Guantanamo, and just as I opposed the use of torture on those prisoners, I am opposed to targeting AMERICAN citizens with drone strikes. This policy is at least as bad as those I outlined above, and most likely worse, since those above CAN be corrected, but death can not.
This policy makes the executive a god, deciding with perhaps a checkmark on a list, which American citizen lives and which dies....personally, I see nothing in the constitution that gives him that power.
Had I chosen to, I could have made a case in the other direction, since there is another side. Capturing an American Citizen engged in terrorist activities, would require putting some (perhaps many) American lives at risk, versus pressing some buttons and sending that drone to kill him/her. Secondly, if God Forbid, there were another attack here, and the public was later told that the President knew about the plot, and because
an American was involved, a drone strike was not used...Republicans would be screaming at the president for not taking out this person when he had the chance. Another tough issue to say the least ! BUT the consitution either means something or it doesn't. I believe it should, and it does.
OT, all of your points well taken.
Today(as you know) the world is very different, things happen very fast. Battle lines are not black and white. American Citizens hate America and it's citizens so much, that they will kill as many of them as possible even if they die also.
Yes, our own intelligence dept's can be corrupted, like what Cheney did. Or on the other hand our intelligence gathering can be the best defense.
President Obama has a sworn oath to protect us, and if he didn't do everything in his power to do so(and he can't wait for a trail by jury) Obama and Obama alone would be the one at fault and the Republicans would be all over him, for political gain. They would not be with him to fix the problem. As Americans we should all band together fight this enemy with the best weapons available.
As Americans we should also be very careful and not go into any conflict without knowing all of the facts.
Right now we could use more help at home with our own American projects.

I'm torn on the whole drone on Americans deal. I'm not sure just how the Justice Dept's position on it's legality meshes with:

Article 3, Section 3, US Constitution. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. The Congress shall have power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

The Constitution defines only one crime, that of treason, and tells us that it requires (1) the Congress to be involved and (2) the Courts (article 3 is the Judiciary) to be involved and gain a "conviction" based on witnesses or confession in OPEN court before (3) the Executive takes action. Maybe the Founders felt it was important to clearly define that particular crime for some reason because it is the only one that got specifically mentioned in the Constitution itself.

Unbelievable! If sheer ignorance is the problem here, someone should regularly issue posts explaining the fundamental virtues of the U.S. constitution and general framework of american government. Aside from God, nothing has changed lives as has this great benefactor throughout world history. Moreover, American benevolent giving has never been surpassed by any peoples in all of history. Interestingly, our framework of American government and attendant constitutional protections made all of this possible. While you're checking out cool new programs, do consider the U.S. Constitution!
