(UPDATED at the bottom)

Insane. Without much new coverage you wake up today to find out the America you lived in, and the freedoms you thought were set in stone have crumbled around you. The National Defense Authorization Act was passed by the Senate. Know what this means? “The Senate passed a defense bill Thursday that authorizes indefinite detentions of American terrorism suspects…” including American citizens. That means they can grab you on suspicion of “terrorism” and take you to prison for, oh, say…… FOREVER! No warrants, no trials, no explanations. The problem is the law is very vague on what constitutes “terrorism” and so it can be interpreted many different ways, including civil unrest which is the term typically used by law enforcement to describe one or more forms of “disturbance”. So what constitutes “disturbance”? That’s the problem, almost anything can be interpreted as a “disturbance” by police, military, government officials and under the new law they can take you away for good. How did this happen? How did most news agencies allow this to go unnoticed, or worse, purposely not broadcast and cover this more? We’re fucked. I love this country to no end, but I fear our end is nearer than we realize when shit like this goes down.

Here is an article from the Huffington Post.

“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Ben Franklin
