    This was a poison pill to be sure. At least Obama watered down the language and issued a signing statement objecting to the clause.

    I would have preferred a veto..but that would have assured a one term presidency.

    If he objected to it, he should have vetoed and sent it back. Is our military more important than our country?

    I know of one Presidential candidate that would have vetoed it. Just one.

    STFU! Big Brother knows what's best for you. He has to take your rights to protect your rights. Why don't you idiots see that? You'll get the damn things back just as soon as his indefinite 'War on Terror' is over. So quit your bitching you stupid assholes! Big Brother fucking loves you!

    you're referring to the NDAA, right? HR 3166 is still in committee.
    H.R. 3166: Enemy Expatriation Act (GovTrack.us)
    It also has a Democratic co-sponsor.... Jason Altmire.
    Here's the bill summary...
    Who here would like to see that citizens remain citizens even after found guilty of 'engaging in or purposefully and materially supporting hostilities against the United States'? A show of hands please?

    I'm glad you're confident U.S. politicians and bureacrats won't overstep their bounds and expand on this legislation later on.

    How you have achieved that confidence is a mystery to the point of a miracle to me though.

    Look at how loose and generic that wording is, a lawyer's wet dream.
