The amendment of explicit statement of trial by jury was removed from the NDAA.
I can't believe this piece of shit law actually made it through the Senate.
Ok Just putting this out there....it's not really a new concept:
This country is so fucked.
Wow, so 81 Senators just listened to that, and then promptly ignored it?
Fucking despicable. This is why we can't allow them to infringe on the 2nd Amendment. They will take away every right we have if we allow it.
Wow. Explicitly Doomed.
Wait so the supposed terrorists we have detained indefinitely people think is wrong, detaining illegal immigrants people think is wrong and should be allowed to stay but a citizen of the US can be detained indefinitely without a trial and thats ok. Got it we are fucked
As I stated before...it's not Exactly a new concept......
Fucked. I hold the electorate solely responsible.
I posted a comment about this on Facebook and it took 12 minutes before the first post saying "but if you're not a terrorist, you have nothing to worry about". People are morons.
Lets not pretend that they weren't doing this prior to the NDAA. Now they just moved to a new level of putting their crimes down on paper. Even the soviets wouldn't put their crimes on paper, they would just declare their political enemies as mentally ill and lock them up. Like the Obama admin did to Brandon Raub, one of the few cases that made it into the mainstream.
Fucking ponderous. And I'm sure Obama will "reluctantly" sign it. If only McCain had been elected instead. Oh, wait...
I would hope this gets struck down as unconstitutional, because even hardcore libs are against this bill, but I don't know anymore.
I believe Obama has stated that he's going to veto it.
He better or I'm not voting for him in the next election.
He said that last time too. That's why I put the "reluctantly" in quotes.
Obama said he was going to veto it but the reason he was going to veto it is because it didn't give the executive enough power. They changed it to give the executive enough power so he signed it. After signing it, he pretended to be against the illegal part but continued to fight in court to make sure the illegal part stayed in.
There was a last time? I thought there was just the time he said he could it with executive privilege.
Ah, now I remember. At this point everything the government has done in the last decade is just a brown shitty blur.
I'm so pleased I don't live in America. Slowly but surely, it's going right down the toilet. I'm not overly surprised this got passed. Protection from themselves, to the point of taking their protection away.
You live Canada, man and you bitch about American gun laws?
The thing is, had McCain won, the actual hardcore libs would actually be against this bill. All the concern trolling during 8 years of Bush evaporated when Obama got elected.
You're actually probably right actually.
