Happy days are here again

this morning, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and tails are wagging!!!!!    first dog Bo stays in the White House… Big Bird is happy… NO MORE ADS… Landslide. #Obama2012

Last night Ohio and many other states showed the country that our democracy is not for sale.

To the President…”When you were elected in 2008, you inspired the world with a call to take responsibility for the problems we face as global citizens. Since then, you have made earnest efforts to live up to that great hope and trust placed in you by the American public. I believe you have been re-elected now in recognition of that effort.” — the Dalai Lama.”

WOMEN, WE DID IT!!!   18 women were elected to the Senate. That has never been done before.

Cici likes to bark at the birds, trucks that make too much noise, and chases the birds, too. Sometimes in the house or yard, she sees invisible creatures that she barks at, too… Can it be that Clint Eastwood has dog eyes and can see invisible and/or made-up creatures, too?  the Rebarklikans were up to their old tricks at the RNC and treated everyone to some wild entertainment.

Some news hounds tell us that Pittie Pit Bull is also making a run for the White House, for President, and is the woofiest way to go… There’s a Yorkie for VP, what do you think???

here are a few of the funniest “chair fest” and Republican National Convention photos and a few are doggone cute and laugh out loud hilarious…Enjoy !

Can’t wait for the #DNC2012 this week. Insiders say Obama is gonna do a bit at the convention where he talks to Mitt’s invisible tax returns

The Republican philosophy: America is a company, corporations are people, the president is a chair.

http://politicalhumor.about.com/b/2012/08/31/clint-eastwoods-empty-chair-routine.htm

President Obama on the GOP convention: “It was a rerun. We’d seen it before. You might as well have watched it on a black-and-white TV.”

“The 82-year-old Hollywood icon introduced Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney with a rambling 12-minute improvisation that included a rude “interview” with an empty chair purportedly occupied by an invisible Obama.

“Was he offended?

“One thing about being president or running for president — if you’re easily offended, you should probably choose another profession.” Obama said with a smile.”

http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/story/2012-09-02/obama-clint-eastwood-skit/57520284/1?csp=34news&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+usatoday-NewsTopStories+%28News+-+Top+Stories%29&utm_content=Google+Feedfetcher

“Conservatives haven’t been attacking Barack Obama for the last four years, they’ve been screaming at a fantasy, a strawman of their own creation.

“Conservatives haven’t been attacking the actual president, instead they’ve been losing their minds over a supposed Muslim Communist Nazi Socialist Kenyan who wants to give everybody “free” healthcare by destroying capitalism through death panels convened by the New World Order of leftist radicals secretly controlled by Bill Ayers and the Black Panthers through the Federal Reserve and a program of forced vaccinations which causes young girls to become whores and which in turn forces young men to become crazed mass killers which is, of course, a false flag operation by the Obama Administration to usher in the United Nations who will confiscate our guns and herd us all into FEMA Death Camps of Death where everybody will be forced into an unending string of gay marriages and drone launched abortions in order to destroy the free market, give everybody free birth control, and bring about the End Times. Also, Nazis.

“Clint Eastwood’s act at the RNC was a brilliant analogy for the republican party itself.

“Seriously.

“Folks, nothing, and I mean nothing, sums up the current state of the once great party of Lincoln like a raving old white guy yelling at an empty chair while everybody in the audience uncomfortably tries to pretend like nothing’s wrong.”

http://www.stonekettle.com/2012/09/good-bad-and-ugly.html

“Team Romney sent an actor out to wing it on national television.

“They screwed up the un-screwuppable. This was like having one of the featured guests at the State of the Union drop his trousers on camera. If you botch that, how are you going to execute the more complicated constitutional duties? Mitt Romney can’t handle Clint Eastwood trying to do him a favor, and he wants to take on unfriendly negotiations with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Vladimir Putin?”

“We don’t talk social issues,” said Mary Ann Carter, policy director for the Young Guns Network, who manages the pavilion, as several young women from the convention milled about sipping coffee and shopping for souvenirs. “We talk about the economy. We talk about health care. We talk about energy.”

Puppy huggers united

In this country, as in all countries, we have people with hearts and others who should not be allowed out in public never mind holding public office (in Congress). At the very least, a mental health inspection/test should be required for mayors, Governors, Congress people, Vice President and President. That would eliminate a lot of the riff raff (the entire GOP?) well… people who hold public office should at the very least show empathy, compassion, and just plain human kindness and decency. Real moral values and integrity would be good, too.

to us puppy huggers, the photo below is sweet (and to me even more so since the dog looks like my princess)… say awwwwww… it also confirms that animals/dogs have feelings too as living sentient beings.

What does one have to do with the other? I’m getting there…  there are some crazy people in politics/Congress, and running for President, who think otherwise, because there is something decidedly wrong with them, in my humble opinion… no heart, no compassion, no empathy and no human kindness. People who lie and steal belong in jail not in public office.

I so LOVE Colbert, when he NAILS it… in this case, he totally gives Rep. Steve King what he deserves for wanting to allow dog fighting (overturn laws banning dog fighting and the new law banning being a participant at a dog fight)…

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/08/08/colbert-why-cant-i-watch-steve-king-have-sex-with-a-dog/

and then there is this piece of work…

Romney girl video, watch what happens to the dog…

if the Romneyhood fits, wear it. (Take from the poor to give to the rich = Romneyhood)

People who lie and steal regularly do NOT belong in the White House.

Thank you to Dogs Against Romney for this…

Why having SANE people passing bills and governing is important IF you love animals AND if you love people and IF you love our country and the Earth, too.

Registered Pet Offender

Do you want a Registered Pet Offender to become President of the USA ?

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

Romney’s treatment of his dog Seamus  is evidence of his callous disregard for others. He dismisses the dog and he dismisses people.

How about a Job Killer?

He says that he is going to fix the economy and create jobs?  Let’s see…

“The last six months of the Bush administration, we lost three and half million jobs. We know this about Mitt Romney: He’s not a job creator. When he was governor of Massachusetts, they were 47th out of 50 in job creation. His experience is in downsizing, outsourcing jobs and bankrupting companies and walking away with a lot of money for himself.”

Making Abortions Illegal DOES NOT CREATE JOBS

http://motherjones.com/politics/2011/03/gop-bill-irs-abortion-audits

Creating BIG government while touting small government.  Is everything he says the  OPPOSITE to what he DOES/MEAN????   Etch a Sketch… can you believe anything he says???

Bill Maher:  “Mitt knows the Secret… The success or failure of his campaign will depend upon his ability to convince someone making $26,000 a year, that he Mitt, a rich guy, knows how to make them rich, too. And if you elect him, he’ll tell you The Secret. It’s not a political platform. It’s a wealth seminar… But the Secret turns out to be that he is rich because he is robbing you… Obama was a community organizer helping poor people. What would you rather do, help poor people or have money in your mouth.”

 GOP on How to Fix the Economy

The Rachel Maddow Show

Asked what they want to do with the country if they win the White House and keep/get more power in Congress, Republicans say they want to return to Bush/Cheney circa 2006.

And gee, remember what George Bush did? He Gave us the Great Recession.

“Just how stupid does Mitt Romney think we are? If you’ve been following his campaign from the beginning, that’s a question you have probably asked many times.

“…Mr. Romney constantly talks about job losses under Mr. Obama. Yet all of the net job loss took place in the first few months of 2009, that is, before any of the new administration’s policies had time to take effect. So the Ohio speech was a perfect illustration of the way the Romney campaign is banking on amnesia, on the hope that voters don’t remember that Mr. Obama inherited an economy that was already in free fall.

“…Mr. Romney is essentially advocating a return to those very same Bush policies. And he’s hoping that you don’t remember how badly those policies worked.

“…70 percent of public job losses have been either in Texas or in states where Republicans recently took control.

“…Basically, the G.O.P. has blocked the administration’s efforts to the maximum extent possible, then turned around and blamed the administration for not doing enough.

GOP War on the World

oh yes, let’s go back to the good ol days when Bush trashed the economy by stealing from the poor to pay the rich and let’s see who created the deficit…

Jeb Bush: “Sure, I’d Be Mitt’s VP. A Bush on the Ticket Would Show Voters #Romney Is Fully Aligned w/the Crappy Ideas that Led to Disaster”


Lizz Winstead ‏ @lizzwinstead

Paul Ryan & Co are the ones declaring war on religion by expecting churches to cover the cost of everything he wants to cut.

GOP love spending other people’s money, their creed… spend/steal YOUR money, hide their own overseas.


“Within a decade, Bain Capital padlocked the mill and put 750 people out of work and forced taxpayers to pick up the bill for unemployment benefits and worse, for $44 million in pensions which had been earned, but Bain Capital refused to pay. Bain Capital made out well, though, with a profit of $12 million and $4.5 million in consulting fees. In 2001, the steel company declared bankruptcy.

…Romney and Bain Capital specializes in low-wage jobs. The jobs at his three “success stories” are causing many to be among the working poor, earning just $9.00 per hour, a pay rate that would qualify many for government assistance. Even worse, many people are hired as part-time employees with inconsistent schedules, leaving them unable to find additional work.

…Their true agenda is to make the rich richer and the working class poorer, even further burdening the taxpayers, while ensuring that the upper echelon of taxpayers won’t have to pick up the tab.”

http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/04/15/how-mitt-romney-ruined-countless-lives-and-helped-create-the-welfare-state-video/

Romney’s history working for Bain capital, Killing Jobs.

“I like firing people,” said Romney.

So the bottomline is that Mitt Romney and the GOP are counting on YOUR stupidity and amnesia in order to win the election. And they’re making it difficult, if not impossible, for Democratic voters, women voters, Latino and black voters to vote.

Who let the dogs get into politics?

Animal lovers and pet owners are mad at Mitt Romney. It started with the Mitt Romney story about his dog Seamus. Romney took his family from Boston to Ontario, Canada, a 12 hour trip. He strapped the poor dog to the top of the car in a kennel for the entire time. And apparently did not walk the dog once. And when the dog suffered from diarrhea, Romney stopped off at a car wash and hosed the dog kennel and car off and went on his way.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/01/dogs-on-the-roof-campaign-craziness-continues-to-s-c-and-n-h/

What kind of a dog owner would do that to a dog? And Romney does not seem to know that anything was wrong, justifying it by saying that his dog practically lived in a kennel all the time?

So a blog started in 2007 Dogs Against Romney now also has a Facebook page, where they tell the tale, post about Romney being mean, post media stories about Romney and are selling t-shirts and mugs.

Dogs Against Romney was founded by Scott Crider after he read in the Boston Globe about the incident with Romney and his Irish Setter named Seamus, the 1983 vacation to Canada in the family station wagon.

As reported by the Globe’s Neil Swidey in a 2007 article:
The ride was largely what you’d expect with five brothers, ages 13 and under, packed into a wagon they called the ”white whale.”
As the oldest son, Tagg Romney commandeered the way-back of the wagon, keeping his eyes fixed out the rear window, where he glimpsed the first sign of trouble.
”Dad!” he yelled. ”Gross!” A brown liquid was dripping down the back window, payback from an Irish setter who’d been riding on the roof in the wind for hours.
As the rest of the boys joined in the howls of disgust, Romney coolly pulled off the highway and into a service station. There, he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, then hopped back onto the highway.
It was a tiny preview of a trait he would grow famous for in business: emotion-free crisis management.

http://www.dogsagainstromney.com/2012/01/dogs-against-romney-on-rachel-maddow.html

 

besides all of the other problems with Romney being an out of touch millionaire who wants to tax the poor and not the rich, his own party does not want him to be the candidate, Mitt betting $10,000, Mitt says corporations are people, Mitt is being accused of being a vulture capitalist and now Newt and the media (Rachel Maddow and others) have also been telling the dog’s tale. (Mitt’s compassionate/empathetic response is saying everyone is jealous of his money/riches).  Rachel brilliantly pointed out his disconnect.

http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/45972011/ns/today-today_people/t/romney-dog-tale-resurfaces-gingrich-attack-ad/#.Tw-tPBW-ZFc

Newt does not have a dog…  but that did not stop him from putting up a pets for Newt page online which shows that he or his staff realize that animal lovers / advocates / owners vote…and he looks like he is about to barf on the page.

Jon Stewart did an amazing riff on The Daily Show, flashbacks of Newt insulting just about everyone and making condescending remarks about blacks, Latinos, women and other minorities.

http://www.examiner.com/howard-stern-in-national/howard-stern-rips-mitt-romney-oveh-alleged-animal-abuse-claims

If Newt truly cared about dogs/animals, instead of wasting money on attack ads and weird websites, he’d donate his ill gotten gains to people and animals in need. When I see all of the money bandied about, millions of dollars that could be better spent to feed and house people and feed and house homeless pets, it makes me sick. And I think I am not alone in feeling that way. It seems as though that Mitt and Newt and the others do not get that we SEE through their disingenuous horse, cow, bull and dog sh– and ain’t buying nor voting for it.

I posted the Dogs against Romney blog to Rachel Maddow’s facebook page numerous times and other media pages and voila, Rachel  began her show with the story about Romney and included Dogs against Romney… free PR… anyone want to get some Free Publicity about your Pups story? let me know…

animals are people, too

Gotta love this list especially #6…

http://www.jdnews.com/articles/disappear-99233-irritations-see.html

6. Sports figures acting badly. Michael Vick shouldn’t be playing football and if that offends you, I’m sorry. We forgive transgressions that would ruin the rest of us because they are famous or talented. Creeps like Vick should just go away, not be awarded with a huge football contract.

Here is my list of things that should be illegal because they make sane people barf, skin crawl and drive animal advocates to rescue time and time again …

1. Michael Vick shouldn’t be playing football. He should not be paid $100 million. This money should be given to pit bull rescues and the dogs he traumatized, some who are still living with the terrifying memories and nightmares of his psychopathy. Read The Lost Dogs by Jim Gorant for more inspiring info about the dogs, the truth about Michael Vick and how they prosecuted him and what he was actually charged with (gambling not bankrolling dog fighting)…  http://badrap-blog.blogspot.com/2010/08/jim-gorant-lost-dogs-our-review.html

2. The morally bankrupt Belfast City Council in Ireland. Return Lennox to his family. Period. End of story.  http://www.northcountrygazette.org/2011/12/31/lennox_next/

3. All absurd and archaic breed bans, breed discrimination and breed specific legislation. No dog should be judged on the basis of how s/he looks or because some people are afraid of dogs and do not want to hold irresponsible owners accountable for their abuse, neglect and cruelty to animals.

4. Homeless pets, homeless people. Kill shelters, what an oxymoron.  Should shelters be allowed to kill animals? An Associated Press poll says that more than seven out of 10 Americans say “No,” unless the animal is suffering. All healthy, normal dogs and cats deserve homes. Adoption centers must replace the so-called humane societies and SPCA’s around the country. Spaying and neutering of animals is mandatory until there are no more homeless pets. Neuter that boy, Spay that girl…   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWiLfGmBDO0&feature=player_embedded

5. Greedy, ethically challenged animal organizations and their sad ads on TV. Wayne Pacelle, the ASPCA and PETA and other so-called animal rights advocates that called for Michael Vick to have a dog (Humane Society of the United States), who advocate putting healthy animals to sleep (PETA) and all those who call real animal advocates terrorists for wanting NO KILL shelters and to STOP killing and torturing innocent animals.

US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has been keeping files on animal rights activists who conduct undercover investigations of factory farms, and the agency is now recommending that these activists be prosecuted as “terrorists.”    …   In 2006, Congress passed the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA)   http://occupycorporatism.com/?p=2258

http://www.nathanwinograd.com/?p=8052

(The City of Austin finished 2011 with a 91% rate of lifesaving for dogs and cats, the largest community in the nation to do so. Williamson County, TX finished the year with a 91% rate as well. They join a host of other communities who have crossed the 90% threshold including Allegany County, MD, Arlington, VA, Berkeley, CA, Duluth, MN, Marquette, MI, Reno, NV, Shelby County, KY, and many, many more…)

6. Puppy mills, hoarders and pet stores who sell sick animals and keep animals in horrendous conditions in exchange for money.

7. Animal abusers including dog serial killers, animal rapists and irresponsible pet owners who chain their dogs and/or leave them outside loose 24/7, abandon their animals, neglect their pets, leave their pets to starve, return their pets to the pound because they are moving, suddenly allergic or the puppy barked, refuse to spay/neuter and/or harshly punish their pets. http://www.dogsagainstromney.com/2012/01/did-mitt-romney-drive-through-car-wash.html

8. Television shows, video games and movies that exploit animals and people, police, detective, talk and reality shows that highlight violence, encourage dog fighting, the lowest common denominator, sexually abuse children (Toddlers and Tiaras) and teenagers and otherwise encourage sociopathic behavior.

9. Dog fighting, cock fighting, horse racing and other forms of “sport” that harms animals.

10. Corporations that Experiment on and are toxic to animals, humans and the earth including pet food companies (especially those that use rendered/dead animals and toxic ingredients and chemicals and call this Healthy, Natural or other misleading terms). Monsanto, the Koch brothers empire and the oil, gas, nuclear and coal industries and the entire deathcare industries including the pharmaceutical industry and allopathic medicine.

 
11. Corporations and fetuses considered people. Animals are lawfully considered sentient beings not property and are endowed with the same rights as human beings.  http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/196469/20110811/mitt-romney-corporations-people-mitt-romney-corporations-citizens-united-legal-personhood.htm

http://celiasue.wordpress.com/2012/01/07/are-dogs-religiousspiritual-beings/

12. All wars for profit (all wars) including the War of Terror and war mongers who destroy countries, animals and people for money. Pray that the Iran war is Over before it officially begins… they are beating the war drums. Getting louder by the day, folks.

http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=4454

Lucky 13. Speaking of rights, ALL civil liberties set forth in the Constitution and Bill of Rights are returned to ALL American citizens. All legislation and bills denying the American people these rights are abolished and the politicians who voted for the Patriot Act, the NDAA and SOPA are recalled and sent to prison along with the Wall Street banksters, the TSA, lobbyists, elite racists and millionaires and billionaires who refuse to pay taxes, and corporate hucksters who ruined the economy and sent American jobs overseas.

New Bill Known As Enemy Expatriation Act Would Allow Government To Strip Citizenship Without Convict

http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/01/06/new-bill-known-as-enemy-expatriation-act-would-allow-government-to-strip-citizenship-without-conviction/

Congress is considering H. R. 3166 also known as the Enemy Expatriation Act. This bill would give the US government the power to strip Americans of their citizenship without being convicted of being ‘hostile’ against the United States.

Hint:  When Money is Taken OUT of Politics, many of these problems will be resolved.

happy bill of rights day


I had other items planned to post… fun, interesting, entertaining doggie related items… but this is much more important since there has been a virtual media blackout on this crucial topic…  if the Bill of Rights means anything to you, then please read on.

www.billofrightsday.com

Congress, the media, the US government, the 1% are counting on you being too busy with Christmas shopping and your own issues, to notice the travesty of bills they have snuck by us this week… they like doing things secretly, behind closed doors. Because they know that Americans (and the rest of the world) would NOT agree with SOPA and the NDAA.

Maybe you spent the last weekend shopping for gifts, writing out holiday cards or studying for final exams. For most of America, the end of the year is a busy time. In Congress, this is a season usually spent trying to jam through bad bills while they hope no one is looking.

Let me put it in animal lovers terms, who is going to take care of your pets when they arrest you and ship you off indefinitely for having protested animal abuse, for having a pit bull or God only knows what?  think I’m crazy, paranoid or alarmist, read on.

Dispelling the common lies, myths/denial about the NDAA …’

In sum, there is simply no question that this bill codifies indefinite detention without trial (Myth 1). There is no question that it significantly expands the statutory definitions of the War on Terror and those who can be targeted as part of it (Myth 2). The issue of application to U.S. citizens (Myth 3) is purposely muddled — that’s why Feinstein’s amendments were rejected — and there is consequently no doubt this bill can and will be used by the U.S. Government (under this President or a future one)  to bolster its argument that it is empowered to indefinitely detain even U.S. citizens without a trial (NYTEditorial: “The legislation could also give future presidents the authority to throw American citizens into prison for life without charges or a trial”; Sen. Bernie Sanders: “This bill also contains misguided provisions that in the name of fighting terrorism essentially authorize the indefinite imprisonment of American citizens without charges”).

list from https://www.facebook.com/pages/Recall-Every-Congressman-Who-Voted-for-the-NDAA/248343955227401

1. Q: This defense bill is the same one that is passed every year.

A: This is true.

2. Q: This year the GOP decided to add this to the usual bill

A: Actually, it was a bi-partisan effort, with both a Republican sponsor – McCain and a Democratic one – Levin. (for the Senate version of the bill. In the House, it was sponsored by Rep. Howard McKeon, R-CA25)

3. Q: because they knew people would freak out

A: Actually, they were counting on our apathy. “Hey, isn’t there a Christmas going on? That’s right, keep shopping; we’ll add the SOPA to the mix too! We learned; we did the same thing when we introduced the Federal Reserve in 1913, right around Christmas also. People are busy celebrating, you know…”

4. Q: It has been removed of course, and they knew it would be

A: No, it hasn’t. The bill was just “adjusted” to reflect the wishes of Obama, so as to not limit his executive powers in any way. Absolutely nothing has been done to the offending Indefinite Detention Clause.

5. Q: However, the damage is done and the internet ‘media’ is running wild with this just as planned.

A: Actually, few Americans know about this offending bill, since there is a media blackout on it.

6. Q: They know this nonsense was removed, but that doesn’t get clicks, the GOP scores.

A: Actually, this was a bi-partisan effort with a great many Democrats voting for it. They finally agreed on something. Judging from the way they voted on the Patriot Act, taking our Freedoms away seems to be the only endeavor the two parties agree on. The bill garnered a 74% approval in the House and a 93% approval in the Senate. Only 7 Senators voted against it, six of which also voted against The Patriot Act extension that occurred earlier this year. And yes, both Ron Paul and Rand Paul voted against it.

7. Q: because everyone thinks that the President wants to lock US up.

A: Actually he really can. He can also order American citizens killed. But this is nothing new; Obama has already done so. This simply codifies it – making it legal.

8. Q: It is just another stupid stunt, just like the last 10 or 15 stunts.

A: That would be nice.

H.R. 1540: National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h112-1540&tab=summary

S. 1867: National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s112-1867

S.1867: http://bit.ly/S1867 and http://1.usa.gov/S1867b

Final Senate vote on the bill: http://1.usa.gov/NDAAvote

Final Vote in the House: http://bit.ly/NDAAHouseVote

The original problem sections (1031 and 1032) are still in the bill and contrary to the claims of supporters of the bill, the wording of section 1032 does not, in fact, provide protection for US citizens. The use of the phrase “not required” instead of “prohibited” leaves the decision to allow the military to detain citizens entirely in the hands of federal authorities.

__

The ACLU said last night that the bill contains “harmful provisions that some legislators have said could authorize the U.S. military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians, including American citizens, anywhere in the world” and added: “if President Obama signs this bill, it will damage his legacy.” Human Rights Watch said that Obama’s decision “does enormous damage to the rule of law both in the US and abroad” and that “President Obama will go down in history as the president who enshrined indefinite detention without trial in US law.”

Both groups pointed out that this is the first time indefinite detention has been enshrined in law since the McCarthy era of the 1950s, when — as the ACLU put it — “President Truman had the courage to veto” the Internal Security Act of 1950 on the ground that it “would make a mockery of our Bill of Rights” and then watched Congress override the veto. That Act authorized the imprisonment of Communists and other “subversives” without the necessity of full trials or due process (many of the most egregious provisions of that bill were repealed by the 1971 Non-Detention Act, and are now being rejuvenated by these War on Terror policies of indefinite detention). President Obama, needless to say, is not Harry Truman. He’s not even the Candidate Obama of 2008 who repeatedly insisted that due process and security were not mutually exclusive and who condemned indefinite detention as “black hole” injustice.

___

Feinstein was able to include a largely symbolic amendment which states that “nothing in the bill changes current law relating to the detention of U.S. citizens and legal aliens,” but this measure is meaningless according to Republican Congressman Justin Amash, a fierce critic of the bill.

“Some have asserted that Sen. Feinstein’s amendment, S Amdt 1456, protects the rights of American citizens and preserves constitutional due process. Unfortunately, it does not. It’s just more cleverly worded nonsense.” http://bit.ly/NDAAscrewed4

___

The reason the compromise amendment worked is that it leaves the question of domestic military detention open, leaving the matter for Supreme Court to resolve should a future president decide to assert the authority to detain a US citizen on American soil.http://bit.ly/NDAAscrewed

The only “silver lining,” if one can call it such, is that the military isn’t forced to detain American citizens without trial, it’s merely allowed to. The Senate has officially declared the entire United States to be a battleground. And you and I are potential enemies.http://bit.ly/NDAAscrewed5

“The detention mandate to use indefinite military detention in terrorism cases isn’t limited to foreigners. It’s confusing, because two different sections of the bill seem to contradict each other, but in the judgment of the University of Texas’ Robert Chesney — a nonpartisan authority on military detention — “U.S. citizens are included in the grant of detention authority,” http://bit.ly/NDAA9

Amnesty International: The new National Defense Authorization Bill (S1867) presented to the Senate by the Armed Services Committee is such a disaster for civil liberties and human rights it is difficult to know where to begin. http://bit.ly/NDAA4

The ACLU: “The bill is an historic threat to American citizens and others because it expands and makes permanent the authority of the president to order the military to imprison without charge or trial American citizens,” said Christopher Anders, ACLU senior legislative counsel. “The final amendment to preserve current detention restrictions could turn out to be meaningless and Senators Levin and Graham made clear that they believe this power to use the military against American citizens will not be affected by the new language. This bill puts military detention authority on steroids and makes it permanent. If it becomes law, American citizens and others are at real risk of being locked away by the military without charge or trial.http://bit.ly/ACLUonNDAA

presidential election not a referendum on the economy as much as it is on whether the president vetoes NDAA or not… that is what the press/pundits do not want to say because they do not want people to know about the NDAA and Obama’s false image as the people’s president is being exposed for what it is… FAKE… we voted for someone unlike Bush and instead we got a President who has expanded and extended the loss of our civil liberties, caved on most of his campaign promises and now has declared war on the 99% for speaking up and out…

One of the gravest grievances described in the Declaration of Independence was the misuse of standing armies against the colonialists.  Numerous state constitutions declared standing armies a threat to liberty and the U.S. Constitution showed antipathy to militarism. Now, the Congress and President Obama are prepared to turn the military against Americans and allow indefinite military detention without any finding of guilt. If the elites think military force against Americans will quell the revolt of the people they are wrong; it will have the opposite effect and fuel the revolt against the elites.

I hear 99% of Americans protesting…

I realize that this is not what I usually write about but it is so important that I feel compelled to discuss it. At first, the media was blacking out coverage, now there is some coverage, mostly trying to dismiss the worldwide nonviolent protests happening all around the world, people protesting for Freedom and economic justice, JOBS, universal health care, homes and more… And as the powers that be deride, ridicule and try to play down the protests, the protests are getting bigger and spreading all over the nation and Canada.

the whole world is watching…

Update:  http://celiasue.wordpress.com/2011/10/15/update-occupation-goes-global/

There were about 20,000 Americans protesting on Wall Street this week, and for the past three weeks… and around the country… demanding that giant banks pay their fair share of taxes, end the foreclosure crisis, and create jobs. We are the 99% of Americans who have been forced to bear the brunt of the recession, financial insecurity. The 1% elite who have bought politicians and those responsible for the financial recession, none of the criminals have gone to jail but hundreds of non-violent protesters have been arrested… the GOP even contributed millions to the NYPD as incentive to bust up the protesters on Wall Street, are changing laws to fit their agenda all in an effort to beat Obama in the next election and more, so much more.

 

Regular every day middle class Americans ARE FED UP of being forced OUT into the streets, without food, without homes, without jobs, without pensions and benefits and without health care and the American Dream.

these are the real working class people (the middle class) who are protesting, not hippies and homeless people as the media says…

faces of the protesters:

The Wall Street Protesters Are Now In 15 Major Cities Across The Country http://read.bi/ox4GCG

protesters are single dads and single moms, nurses, veterans, librarians, teachers, engineers, doctors, veterans and regular every day working people, union members, seniors, disabled, people all over America, middle class people, even a corporate lawyer … Democrats, Republicans, Tea Partiers, Independents, they are ALL represented, this is NOT about race, ethnicity nor party politics… it is about people’s needs vs corporate greed. 

“We Are the 99%.” “The reason I’m here now is to speak for the other 99 percent of this country that has been denied a seat at the negotiating table,” protester Henry James Ferry told TIME early in the movement’s second week. “I don’t hate capitalism; I don’t hate rich people. I think you should come down to Wall Street and make as much money as you want. And when you do, you should pay a fair tax rate back to the city and the country that gave you the opportunity.”

Whitman, Walt. Leaves of Grass

I Hear America Singing.

I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,
Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe
and strong,
The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off
work,
The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deck-
hand singing on the steamboat deck,
The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing
as he stands,
The woodcutter’s song, the ploughboy’s on his way in the morn-
ing, or at noon intermission or at sundown,
The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work,
or of the girl sewing or washing,
Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young
fellows, robust, friendly,
Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.

I hear 99% of Americans protesting… by CeliaSue Hecht

i hear 99% of America protesting, the Wall Street elite who fear monger and steal elections and dreams

Those single moms, teachers, union members, seniors and twentysomethings,

each one protesting the unjust, unfair and economic uncertainty they’ve been forced to bear

The college graduate with a 3.87 GPA and $65,000 in student loan debt who makes $180 a week.

The art teacher with a spinal injury who lost his job of 24 years, is about to lose his home, cannot work nor collect disability or unemployment worrying about his family.

The unemployed woman laid off after 20 years who wants to donate a kidney to save a friend’s life who may not be able to because of high cost she is forced to pay.

The child of a mother with no job, no home, no healthcare who committed suicide in 2010.

A former student who now has to dumpster dive in order to eat.

The 45 million Americans who are eating due to food stamps and the shrinking middle class.

Each one protesting what belonged to him or her and now is gone.

The way America used to be, the former greatness of the USA now fading into oblivion.

Protesting with open mouths, signs, and strong determination, to revive the American dream, end the wars, and bring FREEDOM and LIBERTY for ALL back to America.

what do the protesters want?  justice…
