Congress Sells You Down The River
And why did we not hear about it?
And once again, Jon Stewart and The Daily Show has to do the reporting.
Since you were probably busy last week, you probably didn’t notice that the Congress has just voted to sell you into slavery.
The National Defense Authorization Act, quietly making its way through congress right now, has a little surprise in it:
It authorizes the President to arrest American citizens without charges, detain them forever without trial, and all under the guise of fighting terrorism.
What makes it different this time is that it allows the government to arrest citizens HERE AT HOME in the United States, simply for suspicion of ‘supporting’ terrorism.
It’s sad that we have to rely on a comedy show to get the information out.
Note: after the firestorm in the article about Cain dropping out, I decided NOT to put a Hitler mustache on President Obama. So I put one on the congress.
