OUT THE DOOR

It was just a mile’s ride from Sunday
Somewhere along about mid-Monday
When boiling passions freely loosely broke
And in a simple damning violent stroke
Destroyed that which had taken years to build
And left holes and gaps never likely to be filled
Gashes ripped far too large to be able to repair
Scars left forever where loved once died in despair
And he went his way
And she went her way
And they forgot about the happy one days they shared many times before
Once shared before that terrible Monday when they both walked out the door.
I do not believe that the United States Government has the right to kill an American anywhere at anytime just because it doesn’t like the politics of that individual. The order by Obama to kill al-Awlaki was illegal and immoral. Plus Obama’s actions killed al-Awlaki’s sixteen year old son that riding in the car with al-Awlaki. The Constitution (which Obama doesn’t believe has anything to do with today and he wants to get rid of it) states it does not authorize the killing of an American unless that American has been given due process and al-Awlaki never was. Furthermore, he never admitted to any involvement in actions against the U.S.. Yes, he ran his mouth a lot, but unlike Osama he never admitted to killing Americans, he just hated us (unless you were a Muslim). Osama also was not an American. al-Awaki and his son were.
