Waterboarding murderous #$%$ is evil but killing US citizens with drones is OK? Remember when the left hammered the evil George Bush for waterboarding al Qaeda #$%$. Where is the outrage now for killing US citizens without due process as our Constitution demands?
Oh, I forgot. The Constitution is an out dated nuisance that should be done away with.
With the election of GWB and BHO in recent years the electorate has let this country down. We've reached the point of near bankruptcy, sequestration is about to emasculate our military, endangering national security, and the law of the land, the U.S. Constitution, is constantly ignored by our elected officials. The President has issued for himself an Executive Order empowering him to declare martial law for anything that is deemed a national emergency. There is something seriously wrong here folks. The people need to take their country back.
Not, I have to agree with most everything you said except for the military I also think the Patriot Act has led us to where we are now. The military cuts under sequestration will more likely be on the order of 50 percent which will, in my view, endanger national security. Couple that with the continuing devaluation of the dollar and we have big trouble. How did we get there? More important is how we correct this mess and return to true solvency. I'm afraid there is a lot of pain ahead for the people.
The people already have taken the country. That is why we've got a creature like Obama in the seat of George Washington. The people get the govt and country they deserve. Let's just recognize that the great Republic is dead. Believe me, the left is already joyfully planning the funeral.
I feel ya pain, but America will feel her shame for letting progressives, and their state media megaphones, bamboozle her with lies and propaganda.
Now that America is dumbed down, I hope they are not numb also, because here comes da pain. The bitter lesson I mentioned is about to start....Yes election does have consequences. Tell America to bend over and take da pill....bwahahahahaha.
DickW - First, thank you for including GWB and BHO - both are / have to be blamed.
The exact date when things got really bad for us was when the Patriot Act went in law. Spying, recording phone/emails, detention of citizens without due process. And good 'ol BHO kept that ship right on going - hugely disappointment in him (and I think Romney would have done the same thing too). A war based on want not imminent threat. Bailing out banks - socializing their risk via our tax dollars and look where we are today? Back to 'too big to fail'.
I only disagree with your comment about the military, heck cut ten percent and we'd still have more than the next ten nations combined. Darn it man, if that isn't enough to secure us, we'd need new military commanders.
We need to engage more middle of road people who want to serve our country, get term limits (if only), and vote all these clowns out of office.
The lack of any outrage, let alone barely any discussion on this, is compelling proof of media bias - if this had been done under a republican the typical entourage of talking parrots would be all over the print and broadcast media spewing hate. Pathetic.
Beach, I have to agree with you. The news media has been compromised by powers who are intent on transforming this country. The Constitution is slowly eroding while the politicians do nothing. In my lifetime, I never thought I'd see something like this.
The military has confronted and fired on U.S. citizens in the past and there is reason to believe it could happen again. Below, veterans protest in Washington D.C. for their rightful war bonus.
Although the House passed the Patman Veterans Bill, the Senate rejected its version on 17 June. When veterans protested by marching on Pennsylvania Avenue, police responded violently, resulting in the deaths of two veterans and two policemen. On 28 July President Hoover ordered the Secretary of War to disperse the protesters. In the late afternoon, cavalry, infantry, tanks, and a mounted machine gun pushed the Bonusers out of Washington. Although under orders from Hoover to show restraint, the troops injured more than one hundred veterans. General Douglas MacArthur sent troops into the Anacostia camp, directly disobeying Hoover's orders. A fire of unknown origin, although suspected of being started by the troops, burnt down most of the veterans' tents and other structures.
Hoover's public image suffered greatly as a result of the troops' actions, which helped Franklin Roosevelt win the presidential election a few months later. Although Roosevelt scored political points because of Hoover's missteps, he showed little sympathy for the veterans once in office. Congress passed, over his veto, a bill that paid out the bonuses in 1936, at a cost of $2.5 billion.
MacArthur, Patton, and Eisenhower were there. (Moral: Those in power dictate what is right or wrong. Remember history.)
