It is truly a dark time for America when both of these pieces of draconian legislation are so close to becoming law. Cements our government's image as corporate puppets and fearmongers. SOPA alone is bad enough, but the NDAA is some of the scariest stuff I have read out of DC in a long time. I don't need a political pundit to tell me that giving the government authority to indefinitely detain American citizens under mere suspicion of terrorist-related activity with no trial or appeal is a very very bad idea. The government already classifies protesters as low-level terrorists. How many people are going to end up in Gitmo before folks realize what's happening?
