And I couldn’t be prouder


As a graduate of old school, Jefferson architected, designed and purposed U Va, this news makes me exquisitely happy:
The resolution, passed Monday, “calls on the United States Congress and the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia to adopt legislation prohibiting information obtained from the domestic use of drones from being introduced into a Federal or State court,” and “pledges to abstain from similar uses with city-owned, leased, or borrowed drones.”
Now I am no fondler of terrorists, but there comes a moment when the processes of the star chamber become institutionalized that we all have to pause scratch our heads, and say, ‘I know the Constitution is not supposed to be a suicide pact, but let’s talk about this ….”
The idea that a man who found no voter intimidation among the New Black Panthers is the one justifiying the death of american citizens by american weapons gives one, I think they call it:

PAUSE

The slipperiest of slopes.

Consider the sbsurdity of the Republic we now live in.

They wanted to try KSM (and cohortss) publicly in a civilian court in Manhattan, with all the rights and privledes of due process, and yet they want to justify killin Americans overseas on the mere suspicion -- with no intel to back it up -- of affiliating with Al Qaida.

What's to then stop this from moving to the FBI or local L.E. (we think he has a gun or bomb inside, can we arm those drones we've been flying the last few years and fry his ass?)
