The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed HR 1955 titled the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007. This bill is one of the most blatant attacks against the Constitution yet and actually defines thought crimes as homegrown terrorism. If passed into law, it will also establish a commission and a Center of Excellence to study and defeat so called thought criminals. Unlike previous anti-terror legislation, this bill specifically targets the civilian population of the United States and uses vague language to define homegrown terrorism. Amazingly, 404 of our elected representatives from both the Democrat and Republican parties voted in favor of this bill. There is little doubt that this bill is specifically targeting the growing patriot community that is demanding the restoration of the Constitution.Like I said, a little hyperbolic. But, if you couple this bill, and its companion in the Senate, with the National Security Directives the Bushevik Cabal signed into action last summer (NSID 51?), making the president the sole authority and power in the case of a national emergency, it's hard to escape the feeling that these folks aren't really planning to leave in Jan, '09.
In such a situation, this little piece of legislative legerdemain would have inestimable political use in suppressing such resistance as might arise to the unprecedented but by then undeniable Pakistanization of the USofA.
And by the way: what the FUCK is wrong with Jane Harman? She's like the Joe Lieberman of the House?
