If you can be dismembered without due process…

what’s a little indefinite detention?

How fitting that the man who perverts Dr. King’s ‘dream’ language to justify the former is also the guy who has codified the latter into law.

Doubtless the day will come when we will likewise be told that only by rounding up undesirables and jailing them forever without trial can the American Dream come true.

Only it’s entirely a coin toss as to whether it will be a Republican or Democrat telling us that since it is not longer a question of left vs. right, but of elites vs. the rest of us.

    Yes, you’re right. And people are cowed into being careless about freedom issues. Only nuts ask questions, only nuts resist.

    The lack of coverage around the passage of the NDAA is the scariest bit. The media are bought and paid for. The only reason SOPA was stopped is because of the money at stake. Unfortunately with indefinite detainment there is no incentive beyond being labelled crazy or unpatriotic.

    Spot on.

    Police states accrete they don’t arrive fully developed. We have been underway for a while. 9-11 kicked it into high gear.

    Mark, thanks for that article. I’d never thought of the issue in that way before. That’s really a pretty good argument.
