Slippery Slope

 

130312slope_drone_obamacareRand Paul’s 13 hour filibuster, extracted an agreement from the administration not to kill American citizens sitting in American cafes. For those keeping score, the Holder/Obama team has whacked 3 Americans so far.

That still leaves this administration 77 short of the Clinton/Reno mark of 80 killed in Waco Texas.

However, President Obama has shown the remarkable ability to extend the kill zone for American citizens and constitutional rights for foreign terrorists at the same time! In early March Bin Laden’s son-in-law, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, was picked up in Jordan and brought to New York for trial. Along the way he was read his Miranda rights.

The true test of Obama’s power is – will Sulaiman be forced to buy health insurance?

Stand with Rand

Rand Paul’s filibuster over all the president’s drones was a huge hash tag hit on Twitter.

They were not happy with the kids’ behavior while they were out.
