The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

The Senate, with a vote of 93-7, passed a bill that effectively ends the Bill of Rights in America.

This is the bill: thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery…:

This is the section outlining the "guidelines" for military custody: thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/F…:

"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."

When Fox News is enraged, you know something is amiss.

1984 is a reality.

Orwell was just 27 years off, and didn't think Fahrenheit 451 would also be factored in there.

Edit:

What was voted against was an amendment to the bill (SA 1274) that would have adjusted the provisions of the bill that allowed for warrant-less, indefinite detention of citizens within the boundaries of the US. So it was the amendment that would have fixed the bill that was defeated 42 -59.

The National Defense Authorization Act itself (S 1867) passed the Senate last night in a roll call vote 93 for, 7 against.

There were differences between the version approved by the House back in May and the one passed by the Senate last night, so now it goes back to the House, and then on to the President.

It's not too late to make our voices heard, especially by your House representatives and the President, but even with a public outcry this stands a good chance of passing, because given the cult of nationalism in this country no one in Congress wants to be seen as soft on terrorism or defense; that and their corporate masters would certainly love to be able to lock up their most vocal opponents by having them declared 'enemy combatants.'

yeah I already screamed at 'em like I was they grandma. But it's up to them now.

It is sad to think that I may not grow old and die in my own country of birth, but y'know, Terminator-prequel life is FTL.

I have joked about moving to Canada or Europe for a while now, but this time it's a serious thought.
