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.

I would hope that anyone who reads my poetry understands that I write what comes to my mind and it doesn't mean I'm the reality of the words. I mean that just because I write about alcoholism does not mean I am the character in the poems. I write about those I've known and those I know and a very wide grouping that is of sinners and saints, those who know who and where they are going and those who are completely lost. I am empathic. I write in the first person because I feel the reality of what I am writing about. Like Dean Martin pretending to be drunk while performing I am not what it may seem. Just a thought as I know some out there who read what I write see the words and not the art or the understanding of the problem I am commenting on, nor do they understand that the comment is for the purpose of illustration and not my own personal reality.
