Romney, McCain and the NDAA

How long have we been complaining about having to hold our noses when we voted for McCain in 2008?  How many times has it been said in countless blogs, posts on facebook, pundits on television, radio hosts, etc., that McCain was a lousy choice that the establishment Republicans shoved down our throats?

And what does Romney do?  Accept the endorsement of McCain!!!  That move right there I believe will sink his candidacy.  Not that he was my choice to begin with, but now he is definitely off the radar.

Now, about that National Defense Authorization Act.  Here is the pdf:

Starting at page 359 is the part most people refer to, the "detaining of, for purposes of, in support of...etc etc etc".

HOWEVER, if you are still awake by the time you get to that page and continue to page 362, you will find the following:

(1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS.—The require- 17
ment to detain a person in military custody under 18
this section does not extend to citizens of the United 19
States. 20
(2) LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS.—The require- 21
ment to detain a person in military custody under 22
this section does not extend to a lawful resident 23
alien of the United States on the basis of conduct 24
taking place within the United States, except to the
extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States.

However, if you are just visiting here or here illegally, you could just disappear....

Well said. And another joke endorsement for Romney was that of Trump. Oh plezzz! The Donald is actually a Dem at heart just like Romney.

Even though the small print on NDAA sez "don't worry, be happy" I'm still scart and plan to stay alert.
