Has the sads... :-(

On December 31, 2011, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), codifying indefinite military detention without charge or trial into law for the first time in American history. As I sit at my computer, I have to wonder where our country is going. Oh, I'm not worried about the elections. The damage--incredible damage to our freedoms--has been done. Quite frankly, I don't see any way out short of total anarchy. The thing I find most discouraging is that so many people are asleep at the wheel. They're worried about who's going to win on the reality shows on television or who's sleeping with who in Hollywood. And the band plays on in Washington, DC.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, then maybe you should take a couple minutes and read up at the links provided about how your freedoms have been systematically stripped in the last six months.

Many of you are appalled at what the current candidates are proposing, but my friends that's merely a smoke screen to keep your attention away from the real show. Read. Be informed. Don't be distracted by the political clown show. Time is running out.

Obama signs law
No need for congressional approval for war



  1. I am surprised that more people aren't blogging about stuff like this all the time. Short of total anarchy I can see people creating the impetus for change from beneath. I would say something about the problem being related to the American two-party system, but here in Canada we seem to keep voting in the same psychopath despite other, better options, so schner.

    My take on it is that it's important to take advantage of and attend to the things we can take action on. I'm working on food sufficiency (i.e., growing my own food) and local politics this year.

  2. Thank you for commenting, Elizabeth! Yes, food sufficiency is another scary area. Shoot I left that one out. Monsanto wants to control the seed supply by patenting all seeds. And our government is trying to shove through a law where you can't grow your own food. Dangerous stuff considering all the genetically modified seeds!

  3. I try to stay away from blogging politics, but this is truly scary times we live in.

  4. I do too, Amber, but sometimes I just can't stay quiet.

  6. And unfotunately what the US stuffs up impacts on the world. But, as you say, lets all watch a game show and not worry. You live in an extremely scary country
