The road to Fascism starts here: S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill and SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act)/IP Protect Act
**Latest update WELL IT PASSED THE HOUSE YESTERDAY 12/14(283 yeas to 136 nay), PRESIDENT OBAMA WON'T VETO THIS BILL SO IT WILL BECOME LAW.
Please check this link out about what the House is doing about the detainee sections of S.1867. http://armedservices.house.gov/index.cfm/files/serve?File_id=23d194d7-78c9-4c57-b2d9-31bc3bb7daeb This may be the good news we are looking for.* It passed in Senate on (12/1) with 93 yeas to 7 nays and has been introduced in the to the House. It will be added into an already approved bill--The Military Construction Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012. Here is the info on the bill. They will be working to resolved the differences. The M.C.A.A. passed in the House back in May 2011 with 322 yeas to 96 nays. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h112-1540 After the House resolved the differences of the two bills then it will go to President Obama to approve. Everyone call your House Reps and write to President Obama--get the word out that you strongly disapprove of this bill. Spread the word and make your voices heard on this. Thanks.
Please call these House Representatives who were just appointed to review and resolve the difference of each bill. Tell them how you feel about section 1031-1032 of the S. 1867 bill. **
**On Dec 7, 2011: The Speaker appointed conferees - from the Committee on Armed Services for consideration of the House bill and the Senate amendment, and modifications committed to conference: McKeon, Bartlett, Thornberry, Akin, Forbes, Miller (FL), LoBiondo, Turner (OH), Kline, Rogers (AL), Shuster, Conaway, Wittman, Hunter, Rooney, Schilling, Griffin (AR), West, Smith (WA), Reyes, Sanchez, Loretta, McIntyre, Andrews, Davis (CA), Langevin, Larsen (WA), Cooper, Bordallo, Courtney, Loebsack, Tsongas, and Pingree (ME).
Here is a little info on S. 1867 bill.
The worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial provision is in S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which will be on the Senate floor on Monday. The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing.which will be on the Senate floor on Monday.

Check out these commentaries. The first is from Lionel on WPIX New York News and the second is from Judge Andrew Napolitano of Freedom Watch on Fox (one of the only people I will listen to on Fox.) They are both sounding the alarm on this awful bill.
*SOPA/IP Protect ACT According to the Stop Pricacy Act the Attorney General has the right to shut down any site it pleases and claim that it infringes on copyright laws with out due process. Guess what that means Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter, Ebay, some of Amazon are all offenders to these bill.
Please look at this you tube documentary to get a further idea about this horrible bill. http://youtu.be/m-W0ygc-fBo This bill will change the internet drastically and will affect social network sites, even this website.
The biggest supporters of SOPA & Protect ID are ofcourse Hollywood, The Music Industry, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. In addition to this list of companies that support these bills. Please see these links, ignore the title of the first one. http://theoriesofconspiracy.com/2011/11/list-of-major-companies-supporting-sopa.htm
Also, check out these tech companies that are for SOPA. http://www.sfexaminer.com/politics/congress/2011/12/house-bill-ends-public-financing-elections?page=0%2C0%2C0%2C1
I say at the very least we should have mass boycotting of Hollywood and The Music Industry. Don't go to the movies any longer, don't buy or rent videos, don't buy anything associated with these two industries for as long as it takes for them to back off with thee two horrible bills.*
So please stand up and don't allow these awful bills pass as they are going to really try to push them through.
