    It looks to me like he wants to give the president power to use mercenaries to capture Osama and Company. Failing their capture it would appear that the mercenaries would seize any property of Osama and Company.


    This bill is just plain a waste of time. If the US had the intelligence to effectively capture Osama then there are plenty of Special Forces that would be a lot more effective than a bunch of hired thugs.

    Why is it that you constantly badger an honest politician like Ron Paul who believes in the Contitution, yet turn right around and give constant praise and support to the liberal, inept leadership that now resides in the White House?

    I did not badger anyone. As a matter of fact I know very little about Ron Paul. What I did was comment about this resolution he presented to the House. I stand by my statements about this resolution.

    You beat me to the punch. ;)

    Maybe this will send people rushing to their law dictionaries and to their civics books to learn about this :)
