    Yes you read that right, American citizens can be indefinitely detain by the military. Those who argued that the NDAA did not pertain to Americans citizens I would like to ask if it did not affect American citizens why did a federal judge rule that it does?

    Hey man, the US Supreme Court has ruled that Corporations ARE people and that ObamaCare IS Constitutional. And since no one cares it should only follow that lower courts will rule against US Citizens and for our Corporate Masters.

    But as it is now Americans care more about MFL Footsbawl and the skin color of the President.

    We are more concerned with bullshit than we are with this. I don't care WHO THE NEXT PRESIDENT IS AS LONG AS THIS IS A LAW WE HAVE NO RIGHTS.

    Many of us consider it a 'lesson learned' that we should have known better to :clap2: with Patriot Act after 9/11. Granted there's room for saying 'trauma', but the very argument made at the time by many regarding 'slippery slope' has come home to roost.

    Time to undo the blanket allowance.

    These are desperate times, and people don't realize it.
    All that is needed is an event.

    I remember warning my RWNJ friends about this stuff back in the days when it first became "legal." Naturally, I was slapped down because they trusted George Bush with such powers. After all, those were extraordinary times and extraordinary means must be used to keep us safe and the government would not go after every day American citizens...just the "terrorist's"

    Well...here we are 10 years later and those powers are now held by someone you DON'T trust. Guess what? It's too late now to feign outrage and worry. You should have done that at the very first, instead of surrendering your liberties for safety.

    Don't come crying to we liberals and progressives about it now. We warned you, but you wouldn't listen. You had your chance to stand up for freedom and the rule of law, but took the narrowly focused, short-term view of giving George Bush whatever he asked for. That it may now bite you in the butt is your problem.

    Wasn't this part of the 2012/2013 Appropritations Bill? I know I was spouting off on this 9 months ago.
    My problem with it was that it's part of a spending Bill and that Congress wrote it forcing the President
    to Choose between the Constitutional Right of freedom of movement and National Security.
    If he didn't sign it, he would have been soft on National Security.

    Blame him for signing it, but at least the military is funded.
