Rand Paul Vindicated on Drones & Liquor Stores

It is always painful for me to admit that I was wrong.  But maybe  I was mistaken to be skeptical about Sen. Rand Paul’s recent assertion during a Fox News interview: “If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and fifty dollars in cash, I don’t care if a Drone kills him or a policeman kills him…”

Sen. Paul, as one of our duly-elected leaders, has access to confidential information about national perils that far eclipses the data available to mere private citizens.

    But that’s a state liquor store. Therefore, by definition, no crime could ever be committed there. It would be too superbly guarded and impregnable to terrorism or any other form of evil. As we all know, the state is perfect.

      Claire, if the state was perfect, the liquor would not be so damn overpriced.

    That’s strictly the lingering influence of Evil Capitalism. Once the state has triumphed, liquor will be free for everyone, but no one will want to drink it because they’ll get the only “high” they need from worshipping government.

    Media reports that Rahkin al-Veezh was killed by a drone are just part of the media-state conspiracy. I can prove that al-Veezh is alive and working in a Burger King in Memphis.

    You know, I put a LOT of work into defending your now admittedly indefensible position in the other thread. I am still going to have to invoice you for the time involved, you realize.

    Claire, maybe the robber had, in addition to the AK47, a pack of leasheds ratles.* That alone would justify Arrest With Extreme Prejudice…..

    *baying as we all know, like soprano werewolves….

    I’m afraid Lee Harvey might be onto something. My sources tell me that there are many Rahkin al-Veezh doubles that serve to confuse his enemies. There is no telling how many Rahkin al-Veezh impersonators there are in sleeper cells holed up in cheap motels waiting to terrorize unsuspecting patrons of seedy dives south of the Mason-DIxon line.

    Sure, Harum Scarum might be on the run after this latest drone strike, but these liquor store holdups have probably netted them hundreds of dollars. As long as they’ve got the dough to put gas in their old Cadillacs, they’ll be on the move and threatening those who work hard and play by the rules.

      And if they made it as far south as Richmond and have a few hundred bucks, they can scamper across the North Carolina line and buy all sorts of fireworks legally. Where I live now, there is a $500 fine for setting off firecrackers. But in NC – no problem!

    It looks like there was a Harum Scarum incident in Iowa. I guess they haven’t gotten any weaponized drones to deal with these threats in like Kentucky.

      Strictly on principle, I have always avoided angry Elvis impersonators with shotguns. I know – there are probably some that are good citizens, and maybe even pay their taxes – but …. I’m prejudiced against that entire niche.
