SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, R-Ariz.: To somehow allege or infer that the president of the United States is going to kill somebody like Jane Fonda or somebody who disagrees with the policies is a stretch of imagination which is, frankly, ridiculous.

In 1970, in response to Nixon's widening of the Vietnam War into Cambodia, students throughout the US protested. Nixon sent the National Guard to restore order to the Kent State campus. The resulting consequences changed the course of the war: http://youtu.be/vyzoNCJvy4c

They would have blown up the wrong house or vehicle, thats how it would have factored in.
You saw how trigger happy they were in the hunt for that cop recently. Instead of a car full of bullet holes, there would be shrapnel and organic paste and a quiant "sorry, our mistake".

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.




Would the Clinton administration have considered a weaponized drone had the technology existed at the time?

All I know is

Sandy Hook wasn't the first. Hint.

He forgets

about the War to Prevent Southern Independence. 350,000-450,000 Southerners killed because they disagreed with the evil Lincolns politics.
