I have to wonder how could so many be so duped? I was discussing things with a few regular customers at my cafe this morning and started to talk about
the issues of homeland security, drones, 1.6 billion rounds of ammo and the order they made for over 2,700 light armored vehicles.
He (this one particular customer) was stating we need these things, so to try and break him out of it I brought up the NDAA act. He said he thinks its
great, that we need to take criminals down with it and felt the Government should use it as they see fit. So I thought "well he must not understand
exactly what it meant". I went over issue of due process and that this is not what America is all about. He disagreed and tried to make it out that
due process has very little to due with the ideology of the USA! By the time we were done I was aghast.
How has this all happened? Feels like I somehow slipped into another darker dimension back in about 2001.
What say you?
