The Week in Review


Nothing happened on December 31st? How about this:

"On New Year’s Eve, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law, despite its provisions allowing indefinite military detention of US citizens without trial. Under separate government powers expanded by the PATRIOT Act, non-violent dissent is increasingly classified as terrorism, so—regardless of President Obama's caveats when signing the bill—any future president could use the NDAA’s detention powers as a tool of political repression."

6th Amendment is now officially null and void.
So now we're all officially prisoners of Occupied Washington?
Well said 4Shadows, and now for another gruelling and unbearable election year.
I'm so glad I don't have a TV.
@1 - I have been baffled not to see that addressed anywhere on slog...

Please wait...
