    Obama can unilaterally launch nuclear missiles

    http://www.slate.com/articles/life/t...ge.single.html

    Any President can. My religion informs my politics and I come to the conclusion that all powerful explosives are inherently immoral to use. That was the discussion of another thread where individualists clashed with collectivists, which is not the point of this thread. It's funny, the government and many clueless Amerikans don't want us to have handheld firearms. Yet, it's ok for one man (and a very evil one at that) to theoretically decide the fate of the world. The insanity is beyond comprehension or words.
    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    Where was you, and your ilk, when Bush Jr, Bush Daddy, Reagan, Ford, Nixon, and all the celebrated 'conservatives', had the very same full control of the Nuclear arsenal? Oh, right, I forgot that an 'R' by a presidents name automatically makes them inherently good people, who can wield the authority and power of nukes effectively and competently.

    :facepalm:

    You missed the point by a significant margin, and completely ignored the fact that he clearly recognized the fact that other presidents wielded the same power.

    Take your "let's make everything R vs. D and I'm gay so bash R" ******** somewhere else, this thread has nothing to do with any of that nonsense.

    Being stupid isn't a choice, not reading the OP or the article is.
    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    Yeah, that's what the article is about. A silo guy asked a question, got fired because it suggested he may not obey without question. Also, a former guy in charge of 200 silo's said he figured out a way to launch them all by himself. He quit in horror.
