Adam and John of No Agenda are at it again! As usual, the pointed out that people are being distracted to the detainment/custody is itizens in the bill. Since we’re all focused on that, that’s a perfect opportunity to slip other things in.

When I see things like this happening it just baffles me. This is why I voted for President Obama. He apparently knows the US Constitution, but day after day continues to violate it just as badly as Presidents former. I’m disappointed Mr. Obama. Perhaps my vote will go elsewhere in 2012.

The fact is that you can’t keep continously spending money. Ideally, money is cut from Defense for this, but that’s not the case (even though the damn thing hasn’t been written yet, so who knows) because there are too many people that get campaign money from folks related to the DoD. It would be irresponsible to support a bill that you know is going to do little to help the economy. Spend time rewriting the tax code or using executive order cutting the size of DHS and DOD.
