Enemy "Belligerents"??

Huh? Just when you think the criminals in Washington could not possibly get any more perverse, Senators Joseph Lieberman and John McCain have come up with a new way to "protect" you. Hint: It involves arresting you, holding you indefinitely without legal rights, and "interrogating" you - if it's deemed that you *might* know something of interest to Gov-Corp. What is an "enemy belligerent"? Liliana Seguro of Alternet explains:
"...In March of 2009, the Obama administration announced that it was phasing out the term "alien enemy combatant," even as it held on to the authority to hold terror suspects indefinitely. "Unprivileged Enemy Belligerent," then, was its replacement".
And lest you think this is just another paranoid conspiracy theory, please note that this is straight from a bill that was introduced March 4 by McCain and Lieberman (when it was more likely to be ignored amid the media ruckus over the healthcare bill). This new bill is being considered right now.
From Brasscheck TV:

Read more about what Glenn Greenwald says is "probably the single most extremist, tyrannical and dangerous bill introduced in the Senate in the last several decades", here.

Unprivileged Enemy Belligerent?

Like I have said, December will not look like January.

What's up with that bullshit term "unprivileged"??

Our civil liberties are RIGHTS - NOT privileges!!
ALL American citizens are ENTITLED TO THEIR CIVIL RIGHTS, which are accorded by the U.S. constitution.

Cleaning the House and Senate is way overdue - as in showing the dirtbags the door in a clean sweep.

Wait a sec, do these twits realize how quickly the jails will fill up with tea party enthusiasts and belligerent open carriers?
