With the passing of each day, new evidence arises that demonstrates just exactly how “OPEN and HONEST and TRANSPARENT” this administration has truly been thus far. The puzzle pieces are starting to fit together and the image they create is quite disturbing!!! From the FEMA internment camps to the “Fast & Furious” operation designed to raise an outcry for stiffer gun control laws, the Obama regime is moving step by step closer to an actual COUP! From Solyndra to the Wall St bailouts, President Obama must be held accountable for the misappropriation of public funds which he squandered to his cronies under the table – exactly as he promised NOT to do in his campaign!
Congress appears to be lock-step in line with him, too, which is a startling discovery. The fact that only 7 of our Congressional Representatives voted to OPPOSE Senate Bill 1867, otherwise known as the National Defense Authorization Act, which passed in the Senate the other day on a vote of 93 to 7, is absolutely appalling to me! Is it to you??? Although this bill is HUGE – 926-page bill, but there are only two small sections that have people up in arms, including me.
The controversial components of the bill can be broken down into two parts. The first questionable portion of the bill (section 1031) explicitly exempts U.S. citizens, and according to Slate, states that the government would be mandated to place into military custody:
“any suspected member of Al Qaeda or one of its allies connected to a plot against the United States or its allies.. [and] would otherwise extend to arrests on United States soil. The executive branch could issue a waiver and keep such a prisoner in the civilian system.”
The second provision (section 1032), however, does not include an exemption for U.S. citizens, and would give the government “the legal authority to keep people suspected of terrorism in military custody, indefinitely and without trial.” CONTINUE READING
I see this provision of this bill as justification for his actions the taking of radical Yemeni-American Anwar al-Awlaqi in a U.S. drone strike without Congressional approval or notification. As much as I support the chasing down of known terrorists, Obama went about this in an un-Constitutional manner!
From the beginning of his reign, he has sought to divide the population, thus nullifying any awakening on our part to his actions. If only the OWS folks could get this picture …
Even if the income in America was spread around evenly (BY WHOM?), do you really think you’d live like the vilified 1%’ers??? Do you really think you’d have all the luxuries you so long for? Surely, you can’t be that naive!
There has always been a “Ruling class” and there will always be a “Ruling class!” What Obama’s Keynesian policies have done is eliminate the “MIDDLE CLASS” he so publicly supports! It is HIS policies that have taken our wealth for the ruling elite! They remain untouched. It is the Middle class that is sinking into the basement with those who either struggle to live from paycheck to paycheck on minimum wage or those who choose to be dependent on the Government handouts. There will always be the few who by reason of mental or physical limitation cannot earn a living wage … These are not in question or refused the help they require!
We must NOT allow Obama another term to “finish what he has started!” Get logical:
Name an amount that might be satisfactory to sustain every American at a reasonable level. Maybe $1500/mo … $2000/mo?
Do you really believe this would work in America any better than it has in Europe, in the former USSR, in China???
