It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad World
Two stories today will help to place in context the metaphysical mess we are in.
First, there are the 21 percent of liberals who believe that President Barack Hussein Obama should have “sole authority” to order the killing of Americans abroad through the use of drone technology. Rasmussen reported:
21% Think President Should Have Sole Authority To Order Drone Killings
Monday, February 11, 2013
The Obama administration recently acknowledged its policy of using drones to kill U.S. citizens abroad who have terrorist ties, prompting outrage across the political spectrum. Most voters don’t like the idea and some lawmakers have now proposed creation of a special court to review planned drone strikes by the president.
Just 36% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the American government’s use of unmanned drones to kill U.S. citizens in other countries who pose a terrorist threat. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 40% oppose government use of drones for this purpose. Twenty-three percent (23%) are not sure.

These sick puppies think O-B-A-M-A is America’s answer to S-T-A-L-I-N. They are like those crazy old commies who still march on Red Square holding up photos of the dictators who liquidated their grandparents.
Was it only yesterday that no self-respecting ACLU liberal would have been caught dead supporting the extra-judicial murder of American civilians who made the mistake of being out of the country and on some CIA hit list or maybe even some White House enemies list (calling Richard Nixon)?
Is this what it means to be “progressive”? Do you progress from old-fashioned liberalism (well-meaning but dotty) to Fascist thuggery? What’s next, water-boarding at the local police station?
Speaking of the well-meaning and dotty (no, downright insane), we have this submission from the Left coast:
The Paperboy February 7, 2013
(PP)- As an ex-Los Angeles police officer killed three people and went on a deadly shooting rampage in a vendetta to punish those he attributed for his firing, California Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer pleaded for calm, and asked both law enforcement and civilians to lay down their weapons.
An intense manhunt for Christopher Dorner that aroused fear across several states and Mexico focused late Thursday on Big Bear Lake, about 80 miles east of Los Angeles, where police found a burned-out pickup truck that belonged to the ex-military and former police officer Dorner.
Throughout the day, Senators Feinstein and Boxer made desperate pleas for their California constituents to turn in their guns and not confront the crazed gunman because this would be a perfect test of their anti-gun proposals.
“The Senators feel the best course of action is to remove all weapons from law enforcement and private citizens so no one else gets hurt,” said a Senate communications intern. “When the gunman realizes that nobody else is armed, he will lay down his weapons and turn himself in…. that’s just human nature.”
“I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to Los Angeles Police Department officers, on or off duty,” said Dorner in his angry manifesto published online.
The rant also claimed that: “Unfortunately, I will not be alive to see my name cleared. That’s what this is about, my name. A man is nothing without his name.”
Other California lawmakers chimed in on the Senators’ anti-gun stance with Los Angeles’ Democrat Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa saying disarmament was a good idea, except for public officials. Republicans thought the idea was just crazy.
“Feinstein and Boxer want everybody to go unarmed as a madman is running around shooting people,” said a Riverside, CA. alderman. “If that is the truth… I’m never going to San Francisco again… something must be in the water to make them that insane.”
And a whackadoodledo to you too!
