Differing views

The Signal’s Opinion Page of the March 14, 2013 issue shows forethought and good planning in printing two columns on the same subject but with the authors having completely different views on the matter. That subject is the recent 13-hour filibuster by Senator Rand Paul and the authors are SCV columnist Steve Lunetta and syndicated columnist Joe Gandelman; conservative and liberal respectively.

The subject was U.S. Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster against Barack Obama’s self-declaration that he alone can and will arbitrarily decide who gets targeted and killed by drones on U.S. soil.

Lunetta examined the whole dangerous picture and offered language from (even) high-profile Democrat senators who seem to agree that Obama is over-reaching to say the least. Most weighty is those senators, Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Ron Wyden (D-OR.) presented their views without being self-serving. Gandelman on the other hand did not address the crux of the subject; it’s a matter that should be a non partisan issue (it’s very much a citizen and Constitution issue), but instead spent his words on mimicry, name-calling and overall juvenile folly.

Thank you Signal for publishing the glaring difference between rationale and seriousness versus flippancy and ignorance.
