The link provided references the National Defense Authorization Act which gives authority to detain anyone, including US civilians without trial, and
deny them normal lawful rights. This 'Act' paints with a broad brush which could be used for a variety of 'dirty work'. Just another example of
our government wiping its $@* with the Constitution. But, its okay because they are protecting us! Geez, the rights we give away all in the name of
national security. When our home becomes part of the battlefield, just see how secure you feel.
A full police state is just around the corner, and ATS members should be especially afraid. Many of us in 'here' like to execute our right to free
speech as well as our right to criticize our government. Soon, this could be especially dangerous.
You can bet that big brother monitors this website, and many similar websites. This new act, much like the Patriot Act, will give our government a new
tool in its arsenal that could be used to "silence" certain views and truths about the true reality of things.
If you actively engage in expressing opinions contrary to the 'company' line, be prepared, you never know when a SWAT team could come busting
through your door...
Got to keep those damn terrorists in check.
