My last couple of blog posts might seem kind of negative. But geeeez - this stuff is crossing my desk too regular now, and I feel we all need to be aware of the strange things that are going on.
A bill was just passed by the Senate that is said to effectively end the Bill of Rights. Read below ...

In a stunning move that has civil libertarians stuttering with disbelief, the U.S. Senate has just passed a bill that effectively ends the Bill of Rights in America.
This bill, passed late last night in a 93-7 vote, declares the entire USA to be a "battleground" upon which U.S. military forces can operate with impunity, overriding Posse Comitatus and granting the military the unchecked power to arrest, detain, interrogate and even assassinate U.S. citizens with impunity.
It's being called the most traitorous act ever witnessed in the Senate, and the language of the bill is cleverly designed to make you think it doesn't apply to Americans, but toward the end of the bill it essentially says it can apply to Americans "if we want it to."
Even WIRED magazine is outraged at this bill, reporting:
...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://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2011/12/senate-military-detention/
And mainstream media news has blacked out this entire issue: http://www.businessinsider.com/the-medias-blackout-of-the-national-...
Is this for real? Is it actually possible that this can happen? How might this impact the Occupy movement? And how about our lives as U.S. citizens? How much creepier than this can it get?
