Our populist government now asserts the power to designate anyone as a bad person and to kill them without due process.

If this stands as policy, we no longer have a republic.

The Obama administration’s war powers claims were obscene but nothing like today’s dominant GOP position that the president can order the killing of bad men as he sees fit without congressional oversight.

Here's the correct headline: "Up to two-thirds of polled Americans lied to the pollsters."

Get real--if people are really willing to spend the extra money, there are plenty of entrepreneurs who would *already have* taken their money.

A cop has no business wearing a mask while on duty; he has an obligation to reveal his identity to those who he is interacting with. Also, it appears that the cop tried to prevent himself from being recorded.
