Senate Passes Indefinite Detention Bill With ‘Meaningless’ Changes

The Senate passed a $662 billion Defense bill 93-7, after an agreement was reached to add compromise language on the detention of U.S. citizens and terror suspects on U.S. soil. The compromise is meaningless according to some opponents of the bill.

Senate Bill Seeks To Declare America A Battlefield

There is some speculation that organized protest movements such as Occupy Wall Street have encouraged lawmakers to put provisions in place that give the Federal government the authority to quickly quell dissent that grows out of control and the detain agitators.

Obama Administration Wants Guns Off Public Land

The United States Department of the Interior has drafted new legislation that would potentially kick firearms enthusiasts off of millions of acres of public lands in order to keep them from “freaking out” urbanites who like to use the land for hiking and dog walking. The biggest impact of the laws will be to tracts of land situated in the West.

U.S. Lawmakers Consider China-Like Internet Rules

Some features of proposed legislation would ultimately make companies liable for user copyright infringements taking place on their websites thereby creating a system that, much like Chinese corporate “self-discipline,” gives website operators incentive to be very strict about the information they allow to be published on their venues.

Justice Department Wants To Prosecute Internet Fibbers

The Justice Department wants to solidify Internet regulations on citizens in the United States that criminalize such things as lying on Internet dating websites and uploading videos to YouTube that violate the company’s “terms of service” agreement.

Militarized Police Forces Attack Occupy Camps

Tear gas, non-lethal bullets, flash-bang grenades and arrests “under the suspicion of unlawful assembly” are now all definite realities in the streets of American cities that have been overtaken by Occupy protesters.

Big Brother Considers Tracking Drivers’ Every Move

Instead of raising fuel taxes, many lawmakers support what some Americans may consider an egregious invasion of privacy to raise funding for roadway repairs. The measure would require American drivers to equip their vehicles with a GPS tracking device to measure vehicle miles traveled (VMT).

Children May Be Set To Receive Anthrax Shot

The Federal government, citing the possible threat of an anthrax attack, is considering whether it should begin injecting healthy children with an anthrax vaccine, the possible side effects of which are unknown.
