I think going by mortar would be pretty cool.

I’d blow up real good.

I wonder if the Lefties would be concerned about domestic drone strikes if Dick Cheney was president?

GEORGE: “If we do happen to step on a mine, Sir, what do we do?”

CAPTAIN BLACKADDER: “Normal procedure, Lieutenant, is to jump 200 feet in the air and scatter oneself over a wide area.”

Didn’t they say Cheney and Obama are cousins?

Hey, they aren’t hypocrites. They just don’t like it when some neocons have unconstitutional powers. When a “good” leader is in charge, they are happy to be his subjects. Er, property.

I’ve often said that the only problem some people have with slavery is that the wrong people are being enslaved.

Are drones our only choice?

The idea of being killed by a Drone is not playing well out there

That comment with that picture just finished me ...LOL.

I bet if, instead of killing people with drones, they sent people letters asking them to report to a local execution station for “treatment,” a surprising percentage of people would do it.

That was on an actual Star Trek Next Generation episode.
A war fought by computer selection of areas.

Retarded.

Once the MSM get their marching orders it’ll poll better.

"I think going by mortar would be pretty cool. I’d blow up real good."

Move to Korea.

North Korea that is. Kim Babyfat Jong Un in fact had one of his generals executed that way.

He suspected the guy of fooling around with a girl Babyfat had his eye on (if I recall the story correctly.) He told the executioners he wanted no trace left, thus the peculiar method used.

I think most Americans would prefer to be eaten by the Monty Python Monster Cat.



(I know this doesn't have anything to do with drones, but I found this gif and it's just too cool not to use it right away.)

Might not be that bad. But I would need to talk to some of the others who have been assisted to day of judgement by a Drone first. I am not afraid of dying, just the method when it is time to go. Maybe when the government picks my time to go that will be one of the choices.

Death by Drone? No way. I will not submit to being killed by an Obama supporter.

Good episode. What is the name of the one where aliens take over a neighborhood secretly? They manipulate who has electricity etc and the people turn on each other.

Remember Hunter S Thompson [AKA Gonzo] had his ashes fired from a cannon to the tune of Norman Greenbaum’s “Spirit in the Sky” and Bob Dylan’s “Mr. Tambourine Man.”...and invited all the mourners for the display? Good times. Jes sayin’.
