Lots of people have taken part in the occupy movements all across America.And it is an amazing thing. I believe that is time for Americans to stop what they are doing right now call their friends and family this week and go occupy DC. Drive - Fly - Walk to DC . Occupy The Senate Building - The White House and all of the space that we the tax payers pay for in DC that houses our government until this bill is GONE. ((99% > 1%)) END S1867

1867 is disgusting.

The section referred to is buried strategically in a defense allocation bill, from what I've heard. It sounds as if passage is conditional, that is, accept the whole and negotiation or discussion is discouraged. It is a frightening concept, and shows those in power to be unworthy of their status by the fact S1867 exists. As soon as someone observes, for instance, an impropriety by a representative of government or any official entity they will be targeted as subversive, since their knowledge would make them a risk to the government by a simple trick of semantics. I have seen government employees in positions of trust conceal illicit activities as imperative to their job, and voila -- any who would reveal such is a traitor. An office in an investigative capacity would automatically be hindered by this, any whistleblower persecuted even more for their ethics, the first amendment decimated, and God help you if you look funny at anyone -- it potentially transforms the government structure and ends in overt tyranny. We cannot be silent or coerced like this. The public is largely unaware of this attempt at destroying our freedoms and there should be an awareness activity, like a march or rally at an appropriate location. It's not just an attack on OWS as a protest or faction, it's a threat to our country from within. Be steady in courage, fortitude and perserverance.

The bill itself is miles long and it is unlikely that any Senator that voted on it, read the entire bill.
