    The president just signed into law the The National Defense Authorization Act which grants the President the ability to militarily detain and imprison indefinitely foreigners or Americans who they suspect of terrorism.
    No trial, no warrants........ Now, who defines terrorism? The president? If someone disagrees with him, can they be suspected of terrorism? Can you be a suspect for owning guns? You know the liberal mindset. This seems like the first power grab of a prospective dictator. This is the kind of legislation Hugo Chavez passed. This is one of the few things that the ACLU and I agree on.

    The ACLU response: " If President Obama signs this bill, it will damage both his legacy and American’s reputation for upholding the rule of law. "

    Unfortunately,I bet this law stays LONG after B.O is just a memory.
    How much was this discussed in the media?

    Does the public even care?

    Or is "Dancing with the stars"more important to most of the public than restrictions on the Constitution ?

    As lazy and stupid as most of the general public is,I am willing to bet if it does,it will be later rather than sooner.:rolleyes2:

    Unfortunately, "Dancing with the stars" IS more important to the "general public". The general public is as dumb as it's ever been. Sad but true. :nod:

    And the current GOP group doesn't look like anybody that would overturn it. This election has me a little worried as well as what BO might try and squeek by while he still has time. We are stuck in a time where we are surrounded by reality-tv loving sheeple more concerned with what Snookie is gonna do next. I'm scared for our future and what my kids end up with!!

    I'm not a constitutional scholar, but it is my understanding that this law is blatantly unconstitutional. History tells up many of the 'bad' regimes strengthened their position by shutting down dissonants...people swept away in the middle of the night, never to be heard from again.

    Unfortunately, it seems as if a revolution is inevitable... provided there are enough people left w/the balls to stand up for what is right. I wonder.

    Browneye jerk the "American dream" from enough people and there will be plenty of people who just need a few "leaders" and we will straighten things out. Talked to enough police in KY to know them and the national guard are on the peoples side. Can't say what will happen in the states who are already communist ie Notheast, and the west coast.
