Civil liberties? We ain\’t got no civil liberties. We don\’t need no civil liberties! I don\’t have to show you any stinkin\ civil liberties!

When last we visited S. 1867 Obama was ‘unhappy’ but had already rescinded his veto threat:

Obama wasn’t entirely happy with the bill. In a “signing statement” he said he was signing it “despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists.”�

Despite his unhappiness, this past Sunday, while most of America was putting itself back together, the President quietly signed the bill into law.

Jackass. Same for the Congress.; bunch of fuckin’ jackasses. I’m all up with Montanna on this.

Sen. Feinstein introduced a bill in December, the “Due Process Guarantee Act of 2011“, that would amend the NDAA to say…

An authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States apprehended in the United States, unless an Act of Congress expressly authorizes such detention.

Well…I guess that’s okay then.

Except…excuse me here..but how could an Act of Congress obviate Sixth Amendment rights?

Should Congress even attempt said nonsense it seems obvious to me that the People would in turn need to head to WDC and physically drag the jackasses out of their chambers, give them a swift boot in their collective asses and start fresh; such a move by Congress would be an overt act of war on the Republic and the American people and should be treated as such.

WNBTv - Good TV!

    1. yeah. yet mccain would have most assuredly been worse. and the clown car full of this season’s gop wannabes? pu-leeeze…

      the american people will have to get off their lard asses soon -a day late and a dollar short as always – and fucking do something if they want to retain any semblance of this county’s freedoms. though…if this were on the board at ceasars? i’d put my money on “keep watchin’ reality tv and eatin’ crap” to win…

  1. I don’t think mccain would be any different. wasn’t he the one who put the detention thing in the law in the first place? the difference is -voting for mccain wasn’t considered an act of civil heroism or whatever people who voted for obama thought of themselves.

    1. yep – mccain is one of the authors. however, had he been president i don’t think he would have stopped with even this assault.

      i and do remember the heroism you speak of; best candidate marketing in well orver 2 decades (ronnie raygun’s staff wasn’t half bad either). some of it was unwarranted, some wasn’t – mccain would have kept us in iraq and afghanistan indefinitely, for example. and any scotus seats open would have turned the court direly right – if not to straight out witch-hunting…another thing to remember is this country is – in relative terms – barely a teenager; voting for a black man here is still seen as heroic

Something to say...?
