    Re: With Reservations, Obama Signs Act to Allow Detention of Citizens

    Exactly how is it that a bill that says citizens cannot be held indefinitely is being construed as a bill that gives that power? Yeah, and the JFK was assassinated by the mob and 9/11 was caused by Bush. WTF kind of site am I on right now?

    It does not say "does not extend to citizens of the United States unless they are terrorists" as far as I am aware. It seems that statement #1 is finite from my perspective.

    Folks should be reminded, that the OP is totally untrue.

    The NDAA of 2012 does not authorize the indefinite detention without trial/charge of ANY legal residents of the USA.

    Are we back to the part where I asked you to provide the language restricting the government from indefinitely detaining citizens, and all you could provide was the language that excluded citizens from mandatory military detention?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    You know it only matters which President is signing these sorts of things.

    I'm not an Obama fan, but if I was, I'd be angrier at him for doing it, as a pose to someone I voted against.

    I guess I'm just a freak.

    No, not at all...I wish I could say the same....See I thought that some of these things were ok when Bush was in, retrospectively though, and now that Obama is abusing the power, not so clear cut.

    Well, it's a useful exercise for you to keep in mind in the future -- would you mind if the other guy had this kind of power? If so, your guy probably shouldn't have it either.

    At what point does it say that being declared a "terrorist" voids the citizenship aspect of the bill?
