Barry and the Drones

The Daily Show's take on it.

Sorry, but I really don't think he's all that funny... And what happens when they bring them here??? For us 'domestic' terrorists???

There was a time when I believed that would not be possible. I stopped believing that eleven years ago.

I also think that it may be too late. The time to stop it was then, but too many people in this country were blinded by fear and they lost hold of what made this country great. Too many people thought that torture and a system of black prisons around the world was just peachy. Those who spoke out for our bedrock principles were derided and told that "the Constitution is not a suicide pact."

A pack of terrorists could never bring down this country on their own. But casting aside our guiding principles in the name of fighting a "global war on terror" is doing just that. We lost our way long before this current president was even elected to the Senate. Just listen to politicians (like Lindsey Graham) who are falling all over themselves to approve a regimen of extrajudicial murder, the same men who defended the use of torture. The same men who defended an offshored Gulag. The same men who swore an oath to defend the Constitution.

This war on terror has cost us our soul as a nation. We have become the world's most powerful rogue state.

And somewhere in Hell, the shade of Osama bin Ladin is laughing himself silly.

But as long as you are you, and not one of them fearful folks, you and your American ideal are just fine, the whole thing about America - is that it is based on Liberty and the individuals doing the best they can, regardless of King, or government.

Don't worry, as long as you're a good sheeple and frequent the malls on Saturdays and don't ever question our Great Leaders, you're fine. It's only those evil people, people who aren't like us, that need to worry. Just as Pastor Martin Niemöller pointed out.
