2. --- Thanks to OpEdNews for carrying news about ACTA. It was challenging keeping up with Internet censorship measures since July because of my computer issues. Stalkers destroyed my PC after I published numerous articles opposing S.968, and some were widely read at OpenCongress.org. Regarding ACTA, EFF posted a link to use to help oppose it, but stalkers won't let me reach the link right now. Google "EFF ACTA."
3. --- Rep. Ron Paul introduced H.R.3785 to repeal NDAA Section 1027, the indefinite military detention bill Congress passed and the president signed on December 31, 2011. We entered 2012 without the Constitution. It's just a museum piece now. Unless people know there will be no backlash for using their freedom of speech, press, religion, and assembly rights, and unless citizens are confident that presenting grievances to representatives will not result in military detention, what do those "rights" mean? Zero.
4. --- NDAA essentially eliminates all of our rights guaranteed by the Constitution - a hole in one. I ask Congress to please co-sponsor and support H.R.3785. Remove that heinous, satanic indefinite detention provision that will be used to intern innocent people without any stated allegations or opportunity for defense. Authorities should always be requied to state allegations and allow the accused to respond before removing one's liberty, whether or not the accused person is an American, but especially if he/she is. Using bills like H.R.3166 and S.1698 to remove citizenship so citizenship becomes a non-issue seems underhanded. I am amazed that NADA Sec. 1027 was ever proposed and passed by people who should care more about Lady Liberty than they do.
5. --- The threat of concentration camps for no defined and proved reason is especially terrible for black people. We've only been out of concentration camps for a short time - slave quarters. Ghettos go by a different name, but they are similar in many respects. Fairness for minorities in the judicial system does not have a good track record even with the protections in place to prevent wrongful convictions. Removing the opportunity for self-defense could have tragic consequences: more minorities could wind up in the concentration camps already in use called "prisons." NDAA gives too much power to future unknown presidents. Bigots have inhabited every political office at some time or other, and that will not change. The initial Native American reservations were camps. The Trail of Tears was a nasty relocation. Japanese Americans fight NDAA, knowing firsthand what indefinite military detention is like. America always had camps. Some of us work to make democracy a reality, and the Internet helps. I guess that is why net freedom is under attack. Democracy does not appeal to everyone.
6. --- Free speech is the cornerstone for all other freedoms. It was marvelous the way our major Internet companies came through with the blackout to protest SOPA. Heroes! But ACTA is much worse than SOPA. Foreign nations like China get to decide what websites belonging to Americans can remain online. Oh well. As game hosts say, "Good try!" I would be surprised if Christian websites aren't first to go, then Occupy and other justice advocates like anti-DP, etc.
7. --- Thanks, Twitter. Try to keep the stalkers from closing my account or stealing my tweets. I'll have less interest in social networks for a while. I would be glad to continue complaining about assaults on Liberty, if she was showing signs of life, but her breath is pretty shallow. I don't know what to say. Nothing, I guess. "Good try!" I tell myself. Congratulations to everyone who did their best and will "continue to fight this fight" (Troy Davis' words). Net freedom is worth keeping if possible.
8. --- Kudos for working together to preserve net freedom. Please apply even more zeal to push H.R.3785 to the House floor for a vote. Give Congress another opportunity to vote for freedom and against concentration camps in America. God bless you, Twitter followers! Thanks for your attention and assistance. I published nearly 15,000 tweets, so you have plenty of caffeine for now, starting with the tweets below.
