The Bad Guys Are Us

Starting to come out two days ago, then more fully yesterday and today, are details of the Senate Defense Bill for Fiscal Year 2012 that has a provision, Section 1031, which allows for the designation of the homeland (meaning the 50 states) as a part of the War on Terror or as Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) put it: "The homeland is part of the battlefield and people can be held without trial whether (they are) American Citizens or not." Notable supporters include Senator's John McCain (R-AZ) and Carl Levin (D-MI).

On the surface it seems like a logical means and set of tools for Federal Law Enforcement to combat domestic and imported terrorism. Until you get to these four facts:

1 - The Senate Defense Bill was developed in secrecy contrary to law.What is the Senate worried about? That the People would see what the bill was shaping up to be and be outraged as they should be?
2 - The bill allows for the use of the Armed Forces in domestic law enforcement and anti-terrorism operations.
3- That domestic Terrorist suspects include,.....people who disagree with the Government; people who may be missing fingers; people who collect or store guns and ammunition especially multiple guns and waterproof ammunition,...and people who have 7 days or more of food stocked.
4 - Finally, some wisdom from one of our great Founders, Benjamin Franklin,.."Those who would sacrifice freedom for security deserve neither.

I don't know who else besides Rand Paul (R-KY) is on our side and the side of tens of millions of Americans, but what I do know is if this bill is passed the game changes. Primarily focused on conditions and threats outside of our control,.e.g..economic collapse, dollar break, external terrorist attack by Weapon of Mass Destruction or EMP attack,.....or even natural disasters have now been superseded by the very real threat of a totalitarian government,....at least we have a counter-measure that that is redress of grievances through petition (phone call and e-mails) or through the ballot box. Holy Jesus, this scares the shit out of me!

  1. It would be wonderful to have enough supplies of everything to sit still for practical forever, like that movie “Blast From The Past” in which Christopher Walken had a self substained safe house that could last as long as someone lived there. Unfortunately a few of any of us would ever have the multi-millions of dollars necessary for such a place to be constructed. We can all wish though.

  2. lol well, after watching that link you set up there saint, it does raise the question on whats behind those (classified) marks. I for one know better just because im the poor fellah that has to guard those (classified) things, and we all know what happens to those who try to protect those things, they ende up dying or being mauled up, hopefully i wont :D . but the biggest indicator there was when he said “jessus…uh thats classified” and the the part when he says “out of our darkest dreams imaginable” that was the biggest indicator of all, but i dont know, could be there hideing king kong or godzilla and want to take necessary counter messures, surely it isnt zombies…surely :)
