The National Defense Authorization Act, America!!
This is your Government ... enjoy!
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way, so I stole one and
asked Him to forgive me.
Although I like Obama a lot more than the poisoned Fox News right wing
critique, and I think Ron Paul is a dangerous crank with racist
sympathies who would set America back to the stone age, even a stopped
clock is right twice a day.
This authorization of the President being able to imprison anyone for
anything for any length of time is horribly wrong, and this polished
turd still stinks.
There is a lot more official enthusiasm on the right for this sort of
power, even though the left (if you think Obama is left, that is) has
caved in a craven fashion on it, despite the feeling of the base.
So, yeah, I agree with Bigstick, on this one.
