The Government Says, How About No Day In Court?

While everyone is rightly worried about SOPA, let's also remember there are more very dangerous laws currently jumping through hoops in D.C. Take, for instance, the un-Constitutional and ironically titled National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

Congratulations, America has joined the rest of the un-free world:

This is a video of Rep. Ron Paul speaking on NDAA two days ago. Paul gets 1,000,000,000 points for mentioning Solzhenitsyn, and a gold star for being the only U.S. Representative to continually give a damn about freedom for all people*, respecting the life and livelihood of all people*, and calling attention to our country's Constitution being overridden by executive decisions of people who "know better."**

Procedure matters, people, not just intention.

Update: SOPA is dead!! For now, at least. Bill pulled by Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas).

*This includes people we dislike or disagree with, on principle or otherwise.
**Example of people I dislike and disagree with most times.
