Based on the headline, I think the discussion is Rand Paul v. Dick Cheney and thus my response not whether the government did the right thing or not.
Oh, ok. Sorry.
I’m just in a mood, I guess.
Wasn’t it Cheney that said ‘deficits don’t matter’ and other such math challenged economic wisdom? Our ‘esteemed’ leaders, spending money we don’t have AND keeping an eye on US citizens making sure their collective mind’s are right. I am so glad our leaders have not abused any of that power. Ever.
At one time I thought Cheney actually stood for Free America, I now know I was 100% wrong! Cheney was the worst sort to be near the seat of power when the bona-fide dimwit GWB was Prez. Cheny sat in the DC and ordered the US Air defense to stand down. Cheney promoted the ill conceived ME takeover, Cheney/Bush don’t give a damn about this country as they refused to deal w/ the border and prosecuted Border Patrol Agents that tried to do their jobs! Don’t get me started on their precious ROP!
