Thoughts on the NDAA

So the final straw has broken the camel's back in my eyes... the US government cannot get anymore corrupted then it is with a scumbag president who spews !@#$%^&* about threatening to veto the bill, and then withdrawing all threats... needless to say I am pissed. What are your thoughts on this bill that collectively takes a !@#$ on the bill of rights. Sections 1031, 1032 and 1034 allows for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens... Citizens of the United States are statutorily excluded only from the "requirement for military custody" in Section 1032, which provides the executive branch discretion whether to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens within military detention centers, or alternatively in the Federal prison system. Thoughts??

It's of course terrible. Not because of the whole arresting people without trial. Without a doubt that is terrible. But it in no way affects as many innocent and peaceful people as our current desire to intervene in the affairs of other people. Wherever we go, wherever we fight, we only bring pain and suffering to innocent people. It's high time we've STOPPED these wars and gotten out of the business of violating the sovereignty of other nations. If nations wish to live like animals I am perfectly inclined to let them.

And don't say "Well, if the US doesn't project its power onto the world, people will surely aggress against us. We need to show we are strong." that is an incredibly weak argument. No one believes we are weak. I'm almost certain we have enough nuclear weapons (we have 5000) to kill 99% of the world's population, probably numerous times over.

No one is going to attack us if we do not give them provocation.

I'm a political operative and I had to look the act up. You should probably include a link like this one to explain what it is. Like this link.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Defense_Authorization_ActWhile you might care about this, its not the kind of thing that gets common people worked up.

Then "common people" are brain-dead morons who don't care about potentially losing their freedom and constitutional rights at the whim of a corrupt government.

It is good to see people from different sides of the aisle agreeing on something.

Thursday was the 220th birthday of the Bill of Rights; it was also the day at least 4 of those Rights were tossed in the mud.

In addition to the blatantly unconstitutional NDAA Congress is considering SOPA -- Stop Online Piracy Act -- a bill that would censor the net. Free speech in public will be a thing of the past.

Ever heard of MIAC (Missouri Information and Analysis Center)? Not from Missouri?

How about:

Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin?

The Dept. of Homeland Security refers to MIAC as a "fusion center" ( it assimilates and disseminates information to state and local agencies). What? Oh, you mean to Law Enforcement! Yep.

What did Missouri's "fusion center" tell local law enforcement in 2009?

"... these indicators are characteristic of "right-wing extremists" and "militia members" whose "mindset" poses a "threat to law enforcement:

Criticizing the government for pouring trillions into bailouts;

Being upset about unsecured national borders;

Supporting the 2nd Amendment;

Opposing the United Nations;

Politically incorrect bumper stickers."

It is definitely time to re-assess what we post on the internet, stick to our vehicles, say in public, etc.

Your an idiot if thats truly what you think. people do care for example check the polls (not this though it proves my point as well) many people have a hard time organizing or getting together to protest or complain. either that or they are too busy putting bread on the table, or going to school and studying so that they will be able to do so.

I now oppose him all out because of this i will vote or support for almost anyone else. not that i wasn't just about there already. he clearly doesnt know what he is doing. and he's busy screwing us all over. while taking more vacations than more presidents than i can remember. and disgracing our troops by taking credit from them. he did not order osama a top target. do your research he was already the #1 target, and they had leads on him before obama came. he just reaped the rewards of work done in bush's presidency. and then took all the credit, trying to push the troops who actually did the work away into the shadows just so he can look better.

sorry if i got carried away I'm usually in the left or in the middle but this guy has pushed me way to the right. though most leftists label the right as anything they dont like. one of the reasons i left.
