License to kill

According to Eric Holder’s interpretation of the NDAA yesterday, the government is now permitted to kill an American if they decide that American needs killing.  No Constitutional process.  No court.  No protection under the law.  No protection under the Constitution.  Depriving you of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness whenever it suits.

Waterboarding foreigners is criminal.
Killing Americans without trial and without a declaration of war is not.
We didn’t give them that power. They just took it.
Due process has become do you process, as in, “if he doesn’t like you, he’s going to do you”.

The flagrant disregard of the Constitution will accelerate if there is a re-election.  They are only bothering to go through the motions now.

The warnings about this in the media?

3rd career and 2nd childhood. Spends spare time repairing old things. Aspires to burn more gasoline, gunpowder, and ink in pursuit of slowing down. Child of the 60s and aspiring student of history. No desire to see us repeat the failed social experiments that keep failing for lack of human beings that meet the left wing standards and have to be killed off. Did engineering long enough to realize that very little is new and the wheel does not need to be reinvented.

    The Resident’s use of all those drones to take out rather than capture those bad guys in the middle east … practice shots?

    Not planning on using my passport anytime soon. Just like I curtailed my airline travel.
    Last vacation was on the train. No Dept of SS security there yet.
    Now the government says that it is authorized to use deadly force against anyone that threatens the US, aka government.
    That’s me.
