Spent the night with commenter Kdaug, and we enjoyed the smooth tones of soft jazz for a bit before calling it quits. I’m glad to see the Paul filibuster is over and we can all stop pretending to give a fuck about this administration or any other’s policies regarding not only drone warfare but targeted killing of Americans. As I learned in a thread earlier today, these issues don’t matter because cops kill Americans every day without due process. Also too- KORESH! WACO!
Seriously. That’s the fucking argument some of you guys made in the previous thread. I won’t even go into the fucking Civil War/Sherman arguments being made because I have too much respect for myself, even with .10 BAC, and life is too fucking short. I’ll be honest- that kind of fucking blinding stupidity makes life a lot easier. Why- I don’t need to worry about cancer killing lots of Americans anymore, because obesity and heart disease kill more.
Obama and Holder are creating precedents that will send all of you into fits of apoplexy when the next GOP administration endorses them. Rand Paul is an opportunistic douchebag. Those are not mutually exclusive concepts.
But, like I said in an earlier thread, it really doesn’t matter, because the security apparatus will live on. I can bitch about it all I want, and nothing will fucking change, because the profit at General Dynamics and Raytheon are more important. Even in a Democratic administration. Even when the President is “our” guy. Even during sequester.
One of our nation’s most profitable industries is killing brown people, so it only makes sense we would want to set a groundwork for legal and “constitutional” means to expand that profitable industry to the domestic arena. And while I agree with Mistermix we should focus on the killing, we won’t.
So, dickheads, shit on Anne Laurie all you want, but she’s right in many regards and you’re more than likely a sociopath. And let’s not even delve into the fact that a differing opinion from yours sends you into fits of apoplexy so bad you need to unleash vitriolic bullshit on her. And I am not even going to go into the way some of you people talk to her. You talked to me like that in that thread and it would be middle fingers for everyone. But at least your jaundiced views have a soundtrack:
It’s all just about national security until you or your family are the one being blown up. But hey- cops kill innocent people every day, so let’s not get all freaked out or anything.
