Oh. So a Black President shouldn't be able to issue a "death warrant" against a so-called "citizen" - who happens to enjoy killing other Americans. But a committee of White men deeming themselves as a "court" .... should?? ? Well ... that IS the 'American way" isn't it??

Capitalism may be used as a rationalization for exploitation but it is not inferent to the economic philosophy. Before 1900 there were almost no automobiles. How the technology has been implemented has had far reaching influence since then. There is no reason having to do with capitalism that made planned obsolescence necessary. To an extent it is the fault of the ignorance of consumers. I call the system Corporate Consumerism not capitalism. The Century Of The Self-Full Length Documentary...

US senators consider using secret court to vet targeted killing list Washington : DC : USA | Feb 10, 2013 at 2:28 PM PST By northsunm32 The idea is that a secret court would consider evidence that a suspect should be on a targeted killing list and hence could be attacked by a drone. The court would issue what might be called a "death warrant." The secret drone court would be modeled on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court that was created in 1978. This court approves...

These "breaches" in security look more like Mafia threat symbol, i.e., more like a horse head in the Obamas' bed, than mere "breaches" in security, because something has happened too many times [and imagine what we haven't been told about]. And to think, this just happened to happen when the President and First Lady were not there, when only their daughter was there without them. People should be out of a job/career.

Well this isn't the firs time. When Obama was elected, there was a couple that crashed the party..I don't know if the party was at the white house but they were there. Also, if folks were to get to the president, black or white, a fear of the country not being protected will surface. Cuz if they can get to the president, they surely can get to us....is the thought. And America security is arrogant and bullish and they do not want other countries to believe that they have a chance to invade.

If two black men jumped the fence to the "White" house, there would be two DEAD black men laying out on the "White" house lawn, one by one, and would have probably been chewed by a dog or two. A Black woman was shot dead and she didn't even get out of her car. In America a bullet can find a Black man's ass quicker than one can say "Jack Sprat."

Then there's extreme Islam that thinks it is the antidote to materialism. But their conditioning and insane actions are caught up in fatal error and human weakness too.
