Jim Brown’s Weekly Column: A Wacko Nut Job over Freedoms?

Although I lean towards libertarian thinking, I’ve never been particularly enamored with Kentucky U. S. Senator Rand Paul, who, like his father, is a staunch libertarian. Maybe it’s his messy curly hair. But I certainly don’t consider Paul to be a “wacko nut job” as Senator McCain called him on the floor of the U.S. Senate last week. If Paul is a “wacko nut job,” than I guess I’m one too.

The subject was the use of drones, and could they be used against American citizens on U.S. soil. Paul raised the question, a legitimate one in my opinion, as to whether America is now regarded as a battlefield where a U.S. citizen can be considered to be an enemy combatant who can be killed without due process of law. Paul further asked, “Is any president the judge, jury and executioner all in one.” The Senator’s concerns went to the heart of just what are the constitutional rights guaranteed to any U.

Gee, this sounds vaguely familiar. Here’s a teaser on part 3 of Continued bad times at the Legal Department of the Super 8 Motel on Clearview

One thing these Goatherders are good at folks is cashing in on their media connections as Slabbed has well chronicled the dishonest promotion of Danny Abel’s crash and burn lawsuits by Belo’s Channel 4 WWL Tee Vee. In that case it is a long association with morning anchor Eric Paulsen that provides the in at WWL but the aftermath is a bitch. Proof:

Magee v Abel Screen Capture 1

And so no one misses it this blurb from the above complaint adds much greater color to what I’ll term an unfortunate domestic incidence involving a certain Tee Vee news personality. 😉

Indeed Slabbed knows all but as we like to say here in Mississippi wait ’til you see the whites of their eyes….. Continue reading “Gee, this sounds vaguely familiar. Here’s a teaser on part 3 of Continued bad times at the Legal Department of the Super 8 Motel on Clearview”
