Beyond the courts, beyond the law

Here’s an article by Nasser al-Awlaki whose son, Anwar al-Awlaki, and grandson, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, both US citizens, were murdered by the US Government. I actually got shivers down my spine when I read this. Imagine yourself in his situation. Then think about why the US is a prime target for terrorist attacks.

“After the deaths of Abdulrahman and Anwar, I filed another lawsuit, seeking answers and accountability. The government has argued once again that its targeted killing program is beyond the reach of the courts. I find it hard to believe that this can be legal in a constitutional democracy based on a system of checks and balances.”

Flattr this!

Government climate change energy plans not doing to well

child hugging the earth

The Heritage Foundations blog lists a few countries that have already tried climate change energy plans similar to the one Obama proposed recently. It’s not all sunshine. Higher prices, increased deficits, lost jobs, etc.

How about we try to leave decisions about how our energy is made and how much it costs to the market instead of childishly trying to plan the economy?

Flattr this!
