Last night a bill was passed that has the potential to be abused and would basically give the military carte blanche to do away with citizens that are suspected terrorists. My overview is very brief because I'm too furious right now to even begin to type out a clear and concise article about this bullshit.

Were you "furious" when al-Awlaki was green lighted and killed in Yemen?

 

I understand the slippery slope comes into play something serious here, and that's why most people are bugging about it. But this is going to be leveled largely against migrants from the middle east and certain parts of Africa, many of whom I'm guessing are already on DHS's radar. It's not going to be a wholesale roundup of average citizens, and until someone is wrongly hemmed up by it I am not bothered by it, truthfully. Plus it hasn't even passed yet.

 

I also understand the potential for being wrongly accused and arrested is a factor (and I'm sure "mixups" will happen) but as Monster Zero said the government does what it wants anyway. This is just making it official.

This is what makes the internet dangerous. Half assed, propaganda style new reporting.

 

I've got a news report for you. The Government can, and does do whatever it wants. . . and it's been doing so for years.

 

are you a captain?

I've been following this for months. Did anyone call their congressional representative? I did.

 

My guess is that people are too busy maxing out their credit cards right now to pay attention to what the Senate they elected is up to.

This is more or less what I think business as usual looks like in DC-

Has anyone else noticed that this is getting almost no domestic press coverage? Which is strange, when you consider the fact that the Senate not only suspended habeas corpus but they also handed the military a check for $662 billion. Other countries are, to put it mildly, somewhat concerned about this recent development.

 

It's gotten to the point where it's obvious that the government and Big Business does not give a fuck about you or your rights or what you want....that's why people are out there protesting and occupying public space, they've run out of options and they're running out of patience.

That nut was recruiting for Al Quaeda.

He was running with the enemy during a time of war.

He doesn't count as an "American citizen" when he was recruiting for a terrorist group who's main goal is to kill random American citizens.

 

Commanding officers use to shoot American soldiers in the back for pussing out on the battle field and trying to desert.

Shit, for all I know that might even still be legal.

Food for thought.
