Let's not get into semantics of speech. You know full well that generalization applied to governments rather than individuals of a nation.

No, I didn't. If I'm talking about government, I say "government does xyz", not "we do xyz". How am I supposed to know that you don't?

RE: Rand Paul filibustering Brennan nomination right now.
The concept of this "debate" that Paul brings up is based on pure hypothetical ridiculousness... by any means, why would there even be need to use a drone in this situation?

That's where law-enforcement and the FBI can, have, and will step into the situation to handle threats. That's just as sketchy from a moral standpoint but the deal of it being a drone on US comes out of nowhere, it's just another attempt at a scare tactic to sway supporters.

That is the normal flow of debate. When you switch from a macro issue to a micro issue, you state such in the transition. If there was no transition, it is commonly assumed one is still speaking on the macro issue. Next time I post here, I'll be sure to not use debate shortcuts and be sure to make transitions bold.

It is a scar tactic, I agree. I'd rather see the issue addressed in a meaningful way, not the nonsense letter Rand Paul got. The drones are not the important part of this debate.

Yeah, you'll have to dumb it down quite a bit for me. I'm just a poor, semi literate serf. Dodgy

We're done unless you're going to address the points I raised rather than how I raised them. I've now made it quite clear what I meant.

Rand Paul filibustering Brennan nomination right now.
So most people here again support big daddy government when it comes to drones and kill lists. Atheists aren't any more curious about the world around them than religious peeps, atheists believe in one less thing and that's it.

You didn't raise any points. You made a few observations but you offered neither validation nor refutation of them. The post smacks of a "love it or leave it" argument but frankly, it was so vague that I can't determine whether or not you support the actions you mentioned or not.
