Yes it does sound bad at first. But i was in the military and i know for a fact i would never do anything against my morals. Never against my family, friends, or neihbors. I believe many servicemen feel the same. They can order us to take our friends and family, but it wont happen like the government will want. There will be more protests. More arrests. And when the cop or whoever goes home and finds his family is not there, he will stop being a puppet......... I hope

It doesn't make sense to me. All Obama had left was his base, and he just alienated every single one of them. If he'd wanted the bill to pass, he could have vetoed it and then had the House and Senate pass it again - God knows they had enough votes. What did he have to gain by signing it? Not looking "weak"? Well now he looks like a flip-flopping loser. He's alienated the entire country at this point, the far right and the far left and everyone else in between. I just simply don't understand what he was thinking by signing the bill.
Goodbye Obama, good luck getting re-elected now that your entire base hates you...
