Lame answer coming fro you Dunlapian.
You are talking about local law enforcement. No comparison what so ever. If someone had a gun pointed at me or was harming one of my family, I'd judge, but no need for a jury he'd be shot. Wounded ,dying, or dead.
The Memo is talking high tech stealth drones. With high state of the art tracking and navigation equipment. They are fully armed, carrying military war heads . We are talking top of the line weapons.
Cops make split second decisions influenced by the facts at hand and the danger to life.
The Drones on the other hand are programed to hit specific targets. If the target they are set for is across the street from an innocent school full of kids which gets blows up. Because of bad intelligence info, And kills 100's of kids.
The US, in a political gesture apologizes for the tragic mistake. The children are counted as collateral damages.
For the most part cops do make split second decisions, like you say influenced by the facts. But not all, some make decisions over time like(that Alabama bunker killing).
I would rather our President Obama use Drones to kill our enemy than our own Red Blooded American Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airman, getting killed by the same enemy.
Our President Obama is using the latest and greatest technology avilable to keep us safe. I pray every night that it is enough.
As far as innocents getting killed yes you are right they are, but the rate is much lower. That happens all the time, its part of a war, conflict, expedition whatever you want to call it.
Bottom line our President Obama has a job to keep us safe.
This world is a very dangerous place for Americans.

Yeah, but Congress doesn't mind sending your Sons and Daughters to die and maimed, by the thousands...not THEIRS, YOURS! Reinstate the Draft, with NO exceptions, and see how they feel then. But, they won't do that...their Kids and Grandkids would have to go, if they did that!

Dunlapian, I couldn't agree with you more! And if American civilians are being killed, well...what the heck are they doing in a War Zone in the first place and what do they expect to happen? You put yourself in Harm's way, more than likely, harm will come to you!

This is typical Tea Party BS...Cantor wants to cut everything that benefits the majority of the Average American People, but not one word about cutting anything for the Super Rich or cutting any of their numerous Tax Loopholes! Still protecting the Super Wealthy, at all costs!

You heard it here.

Apparently there is an epidemic in Egypt: diarrhea. That’s right, according to the Egyptian Prime Minister, Ali Hackemoff, the spate of recent epidemics in Egypt's rural communities, is caused by, are you ready for this? Dirty women’s breasts.

That’s right, Hackemoff said “he had witnessed children suffering from diarrhea immediately after they have been breastfed because their mothers were unable to clean themselves probably.” He added that many women in rural Egypt don't even bother to clean their breasts at all before feeding their toddlers.

Hackemoff had no comment when asked whether any men had been affected by this epidemic, however, the reporter who asked the question was last seen having his tongue cut off.

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.

Can you lay off with the links? Why do you think everyone is an internet addict like you? Everyone on here can look up news they are interested in on their own - they don't need you. How many people do you actually think are clicking on all these links? The answer is nobody. Therefore, you are simply cluttering up the entire thread with your dribble. Sorry maam, but you are irrelevant. If the average time to send a post takes 3 minutes, then you have wasted approximately 2 weeks of your time in the past six months posting these meaningless links. Think what you could have accomplished in that two weeks? I am sure you could have found something to do with it other than list a bunch of posts nobody pays attention to. Go work somewhere or volunteer your services somewhere. In short, get a life.

I am pleased she posts the links, for instance the Post Office one this morning. If you don't like them, you can scroll by them, as I do with the ones that I am not interested in. That takes less time than posting about them each time she posts some. If I enjoy some, I can only assume there are others who do as well.

Only in the New America…..

So you’re a high school football coach, and you say,““Fat butt Michelle Obama.” Look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. She’s overweight.”

And that gets you suspended.

For what? Lying? Telling the truth gets you suspended?

And we wonder why our kids are so confused?
