    Glad to see this getting taken down. Can you imagine someone evil, like Hillary, with this power as opposed to someone just dumb and stubborn like Bush?

    That’s some good shit right there. I especially liked the parts about distinguishing between civilians and militants.

    There’s a big difference between saying Dick Cheney is the most vile sack of shit ever to loot billions of dollars from the U.S. Treasury and blasting him in the face with bird shot. On purpose. I’m totally talking about doing it on purpose. Shooting him by accident is just good fun. It’s not even as bad as saying he drinks fetus slushies every day to keep his heart twitching. That’s mean. Shooting a guy by mistake is just an accident and not at all mean. Saying bad things about a guy is mean. Shooting someone on purpose is militant and actionable.

    Now, non-US citizens? “Screw ’em”.
