Americans can watch on TV as their own “inherent right of self-defense” as represented by the 2nd Amendment is being stripped-away in hearing after hearing on Civilian Gun Control that exempts Law Enforcement and the DOJ. Meanwhile Obama’s promised “fundamental transformation of The United States” continues with the froo-froo concept of Due Process targeted and blown-up as a leaked white-paper from the Eric Holder DOJ is revealed to have secretly issued itself a (confidential) Justice Department go-ahead ruling that hammers out and justifies a rough, vague, and loose legal framework allowing #TheDroneProgram to go forward with the targeted killing of American citizens.
Calling it, “consistent with the inherent right of self-defense.” (but given the Administrations attack on the 2nd Amendment it seems to be reserved for the .Gov and Officialdom) Eric Holder claimed the such attacks are justified if the target poses “an imminent threat of violent attack.” Thus The government needs the approval of a judge to detain a suspected terrorist. To kill one, it need only give itself permission. The extrajudicial use of lethal force, away from any so-called ‘hot’ battlefield, can be used against a “Terrorist” – who can be almost anyone merely and secretly acccused by a single “well-informed high level administration official”, as they see fit… As Hina Shamsi of the American Civil Liberties Union said in a statement:
“This is a profoundly disturbing document, and it’s hard to believe that it was produced in a democracy built on a system of checks and balances. It summarizes in cold legal terms a stunning overreach of executive authority – the claimed power to declare Americans a threat and kill them far from a recognized battlefield and without any judicial involvement before or after the fact.”
Drudge Report claims reference CBS-Detroit saying, “Zombie Bullets In High Demand Following Flesh-Eating Attacks” – ZOMG!!
So my question is, is Detroit particularly susceptible for some reason? Like because it’s a Zombie City or Ghost Town?
I know a lot of bloggers/CCW holders are on the fence or quite IXNAY about the Zombie Ammo 1.) since the box has a disclaimer, and 2.) “Every Bullet has a Lawyer Attached.”
Perhaps the disclaimer is for Zombie Lawyers like Gloria Allred who has decided to insert her slimy and viscous presence, python-like, into the proceedings?
As a Zombie-snake? Must be something about Florida and snakes and Haiti nearby – and Canada to the north…
From Zendo Deb at TFS Magnum, we get this nugget of Euro-continental discord.
European Press Review: Is Border Despute a Betrayal of EU Values? – SPIEGEL ONLINE – News – International.
Rome’s recent decision to grant temporary residence permits to migrants from North Africa, allowing them to travel within the Schengen area, has pushed Paris to restore border controls with Italy to block those attempting to join friends or parents in France, sparking a diplomatic mini-crisis that French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi are trying to defuse.
But the damage has already been done: Incapable of finding their balance faced with the consequences of the ongoing revolution in the Arab world or of resisting pressure from domestic anti-immigrant parties, European Union leaders are succumbing to the temptation to retrench. The development could have serious consequences for the 25 countries that have implemented the Schengen Agreement, which removes internal border checks between those lands.
So, the way I see it, Socialist Italifornia wants cheap workers but Sherriff Le Aparo-Sarkozy in Francizonia has put up a wall – maybe they should settle the border dispute the traditional European way, with artillery! As the French daily La Tribune writes: Certainly, illegal immigration is a real problem: The arrival of illegal migrants penalizes the societies that have to absorb them, starting with those immigrants who have already obtained legal status.
Ya think??? And then you have to buy oil from Libya…
The sun’s shining and birds chirping and I got nuthin’ while the kewl kidz are at the NRA-something in Pennsywhatchamacallit way-back East.
But with the
goober holster collection now comes this old K-frame wearing a beater Galco “Fletch” eBay holster – in and out of leather. It’s a step up from the G&G nylon holster anyhow.
